*** Gameplay also implied some people were dimensional hoppers, as Saltonstall briefly becomes a communist and heavily anachronistic pop culture references pop up from the Vox (one tells Booker to "[[TheLoneRanger keep moving, Kemosabe]]"). In the final product, people ''do'' dimensionally hop, but unwillingly, and it usually leaves them insane.

** In ''Burial at Sea'', the Frosty Splicer is modeled after the Vigor Junkie, a cut concept from ''[=BioShock=] Infinite''. So, in a way, something that could have been actually came to be. Interestingly, the Old Man Winter Plasmid started as a fan-made Vigor made by a fan nicknamed Trie215.

* TheCastShowoff: There's an optional scene in Graveyard Shift pub where Elizabeth and Booker do a rendition of ''Will the Circle be Unbroken'' to show off Courtnee Draper's singing and Creator/TroyBaker's background as a guitar player. A video of them rehearsing is even included at the end of the closing credits. Amusingly, since they're supposed to be performing the song ''in character'', Ken Levine had to ask them to tone down their professionalism.
** ''Burial at Sea - Episode 2'' has another musical moment where Draper performs "You Belong to Me". A video of her recording an alternate take in the recording studio is included during the closing credits. Some websites claim that Baker plays guitar during the video but he's not seen on screen.



* ItWasHisSled: The intro of ''Episode 2'' essentially spoils the entire plot of the first ''[=BioShock=]''. (Fortunately the intro is optional and has to be chosen separately from the actual start of the game.) That said, some major spoilers for the first game occur during Episode 2 itself, [[spoiler: with the finale essentially leading into the first game]].

** Several of Elizabeth and Booker's lines that are unrelated to the plot in Burial at Sea (such as when requesting lockpicks and pointing your gun at Elizabeth) are recycled from ''Infinite'' despite Elizabeth sounding much more like a FemmeFatale in every other line in ''Burial''.

** Before the setting of the game had been finalized, TheRenaissance was one of the time periods considered. This was dropped when VideoGame/AssassinsCreed2 came out.

* WriterRevolt: Irrational had to put up with a lot of ExecutiveMeddling and make a lot of concessions (heavy focus on combat, a tough male main character, etc.) in order to secure the funding they needed to complete the game, but nearly all those concessions became {{Deconstruction}} fodder. For example, the obligatory ISO standard male shooter protagonist is an [[TheAtoner Atoner]] with a laundry list of past sins, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything many of which involve murder,]] and more than one critic has theorized that the reason the game has [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor far, FAR more combat than necessary]] was Irrational passive-aggressively commenting on the artistic demands made of them.

** On the other hand, Claire Hummel, one of the character artists for ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'', upon seeing porn of the Lutece twins, remarked that she was upset ''that people were drawing them in modern underwear''. The artist then provided a [[http://shoomlah.deviantart.com/art/Dressing-Rosalind-Lutece-373216479 visual guide]] on what sorts of undergarments Rosalind Lutece would actually wear.

** Graphics designer Joe Trinder created a piece of fan art in the form of a [[http://forums.2kgames.com/showthread.php?240471-New-Vigor-Old-Man-Winter-(Ad-poster-made-by-me) poster for an "Old Man Winter" Vigor]]. Irrational liked it so much that they incorporated Old Man Winter into ''Burial At Sea''.

** Pretty much everything from the E3 2011 demo was removed. A few of the more memorable (and plot-relevant) things where just moved around though. The initial demo with Stephen Russell as Booker and Saltonstall had virtually everything removed except for the weapons and Murder of Crows vigor.
