* FanNickname: ''Skyoshock'', ''Aeroshock'', or ''Highoshock'' instead of ''[=BioShock=] Infinite'', due to the game being set in a floating city.
** ''[[spoiler:Chronoshock]]'' for the [[spoiler:timeline-jumping the game goes through in the second half]].

* 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]].

** 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''.

** 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''.

** 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.

** 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.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Booker. Creator/StephenRussell ([[VideoGame/{{Thief}} Garrett]]) was used for early trailers, but Creator/TroyBaker ([[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Kanji]]) voices him in the final product.
** Kimberly Brooks (previously [[Franchise/MassEffect Ashley Williams]]) as Daisy Fitzroy.
** Creator/KeithSzarabajka as Slate.
** Bill Lobley, who previously voiced Stanley Poole in ''VideoGame/BioShock2'', voices Jeremiah Fink.
** For anyone curious, [[http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2013/03/15/irrational-reveals-the-full-voice-cast-for-bioshock-infinite/ the official full cast list is now available.]]
** Some of the NPC and enemy voices are provided by Creator/LiamOBrien, Creator/SteveBlum, Creator/YuriLowenthal and Creator/RobinAtkinDownes among others. In the latter case, it means that you will quite often be attacked by [[TheSaboteur Sean Devlin]].
** The man giving the speech in the gazebo sounds exactly like [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Doctor Orpheus]], although Steven Rattazzi's participation has not been confirmed.
** In Japan:
*** Booker and Elizabeth will be voiced by Creator/KeijiFujiwara and Creator/MiyukiSawashiro, the latter already voiced another girl named [[Videogame/{{Persona3}} Elizabeth]].
*** Also, we have Creator/RomiPark as Daisy Fitzroy, Creator/TakayukiSugo as Zachary Hale Comstock and Creator/NobuoTobita as Cornelius Slate.
** Creator/JenniferHale is Rosalind Lutece.
** The vending machines sound extremely similar to the [[VideoGame/BioShock1 Circus of Values]] which were voiced by [[CreatorCameo an uncredited Ken Levine]].
** Though he's not specifically credited, those with a careful ear will notice that the Zealots of the Lady are voiced by T. Ryder Smith, who played Sander Cohen in ''VideoGame/BioShock1''.

* DuelingGames: Between this game and ''Videogame/TheLastOfUs''. Both games were hotly anticipated and feature a [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal gruff, grizzled, guitar playing protagonist]] with a [[DarkAndTroubledPast questionable past]] (both voiced by Creator/TroyBaker) who is tasked with escorting a young girl (with different variations of the same name: Elizabieth/Ellie) through dangerous territory and focus on the development of the relationship between the two. Upon their respective releases, both games were incredibly well received by critics and gamers alike, with the both of them being a stronger contender for the title of "Game Of The Year".

** "Disney Princess" for Elizabeth due to her resemblance (both physical as well as personality-wise to [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Belle]]. She even sings.
