** Joel came very close to being voiced by someone other than Troy Baker. Troy nearly walked out of the audition when he saw his competition, which consisted of several men resembling Joel far more in terms of both looks and age, thus Troy figured he stood no chance. His agent called as he was about to walk out, however, and told Troy to at least give it a shot. From there, the rest is history.

*** Considering [[Film/Logan Jackman's starred in a film many consider a spiritual adaptation of this game's story]], this could either make his casting in the movie more likely to happen, or less, depending on how all involved feel about it.

** ''{{VideoGame/TheDivision}}'': Both games revolve around a dangerous new virus/infection that causes mass chaos which results in a post-apocalyptic scenario for humanity. There's enactment of martial law, with roving gangs looting and killing anyone who dares to cross their path and scientists desperately looking for a cure to the virus. Both games also feature fierce anti-government organizations that regularly get into battles against the military.

* EnforcedMethodActing: For one take of the final cinematic (which was turned into an interactive scene in the final game), Merle Dandridge was told to deliver her lines in a certain way and Troy Baker was independently told to keep going no matter what (he had been fumbling the prop gun during most takes). You can see the result in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8XN7eoZr0Y this]] behind-the-scenes video.
** When acting out the cutscene during Fall where Ellie confronts Joel about leaving her, Ashley pushed Troy while saying "...everyone - fucking except for you [have left her]." The push was unscripted, but Druckmann thought it fit well and let it stay.
*** It wasn't the first time Ashley had pushed someone during that line. She previously did so with another man trying out for Joel's part, with the latter being so caught in the moment he pushed her back.

* TruthInTelevision: The ''Cordyceps'' here are a mutated form of the actual fungal infection. Real ''Cordyceps'' are either endoparasites of arthropods or other fungi.
** In fact, this is even referenced in a document in-game, saying that the ''Cordyceps'' fungus originally only infected insects and some arthropods.

* CaliforniaDoubling: A rare video game example. Naughty Dog recycled the road signs from the Pittsburgh segments of the game to use on the roads in Boston, leading to the odd sight of a highway sign in what's supposed to be Boston saying that the Fort Duquesne Bridge is ahead.
