** Alternatively, to KarmaHoudini above, [[spoiler:if you save all the Little Sisters but kill all three three [=NPCs=], you get the Justice Ending where Eleanor gives Sofia Lamb a well-deserved death for all the evil she has done to not only you and her, but also to other innocent lives. Probably a much more preferred ending to any player who believes in good and loathes Sofia a lot.]]

** Subject Delta is an even more flawed prototype, in that he retains free will that other Big Daddies lack.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: If you want the best ending, [[spoiler:you'll have to be merciful throughout the game and spare not only the little sisters, but also Grace, Stanley, and Gil. Though the latter two don't help you directly, Grace starts to reconsider her opinion of you if you let her live, and even gives you two sentries to watch your back for a short while.]]
** [[spoiler:Actually you still can still get best ending if you kill Stanley and Gil, provided you rescued all sisters]]

to:

* EarnYourHappyEnding: If you want the best pacifistic ending, [[spoiler:you'll have to be merciful throughout the game and spare not only the little sisters, but also at least one person out of Grace, Stanley, and Gil. Though the latter two don't help you directly, Grace starts to reconsider her opinion of you if you let her live, and even gives you two sentries to watch your back for a short while.]]

Gil.]]



* KarmaHoudini: In the "best" ending, [[spoiler:Eleanor spares Sofia Lamb's life, believing from what Delta has taught her through his actions that ''anyone'' can be redeemed and that mercy is more important than vengeance.]]

to:

* KarmaHoudini: In If the "best" ending, player spared at least one of the named characters and didn't harvest any little sisters, [[spoiler:Eleanor spares Sofia Lamb's life, believing from what Delta has taught her through his actions that ''anyone'' can be redeemed and that mercy is more important than vengeance.]]



* SacrificialLion:
** For those who [[spoiler:want to see Sofia Lamb dead]] in the ending, but refuse to [[spoiler:harvest any Little Sisters]], [[spoiler:Grace Holloway]] is this. Usually, [[spoiler:one would spare her life as she's the only one out of three people (the others being Stanley and Gil) that is actually innocent, and actually helps the player if she's spared]], but doing so [[spoiler:will prevent Eleanor from killing Sofia]].
** [[spoiler:Augustus Sinclair and Mark Meltzer are inevitable examples]].



* VideoGameCaringPotential: You are given this option several times throughout the game. How you act towards the Little Sisters will determine what kind of ending you will get, so if you want to be a good guy, you have to be merciful and helpful rather than simply thinking of yourself all the time, [[spoiler:specifically not harvesting the Little Sisters, and sparing the lives of Grace, Stanley, and Gil. How Eleanor will turn out will depend entirely on how you acted.]]

How you act towards the Little Sisters will determine what kind of ending you will get, in addition to how you deal with a few more questionable characters, so if you want to be a good guy, you have to be merciful and helpful rather than simply thinking of yourself all the time, [[spoiler:specifically not harvesting the Little Sisters, and sparing the lives of Grace, Stanley, and Gil. How Eleanor will turn out will depend entirely on how you acted.]]

* AssimilationPlot: Sofia Lamb's ultimate goal, [[spoiler:by forcefully injecting the combined memories and intelligence of everyone in Rapture - via the ADAM they used - into her daughter Eleanor, then conditioning her to act only "for the greater good"]].



* {{Instrumentality}}: Sofia Lamb's ultimate goal, [[spoiler:by forcefully injecting the combined memories and intelligence of everyone in Rapture - via the ADAM they used - into her daughter Eleanor, then conditioning her to act only "for the greater good"]].



* MessianicArchetype: Eleanor Lamb is raised to be the [[PuritySue perfect creature]] who is TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth and so she can be [[spoiler:a HumanSacrifice in order to bring {{Instrumentality}} and deliver us from our [[HumansAreFlawed flawed human condition]] - especially TheEvilsOfFreeWill.]]

''Bioshock 2'' was released in February 2010 by 2K Marin (instead of Irrational Games), accompanied by ''another'' {{viral marketing}} [[http://www.somethinginthesea.com campaign]]. It includes a multiplayer section, where players take control of Splicers during the war and compete in games like Deathmatch and CaptureTheFlag. Winning these games rewards the player with [=ADAM=] which is used to buy new weapons and plasmids. Players also got an apartment, where they can [[VirtualPaperDoll change the appearance of their Splicer]].

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** Sofia Lamb. Once she realizes Eleanor is helping Delta, she sits in the quarantine room with her and watches her every move. Later, [[spoiler:she uses the Big Daddy's link to their Sisters to knock you out by smothering Eleanor.]] Immediately afterward, [[spoiler:she straps you to a table, saying that if they kill you, you'll just go back to a Vita Chamber.]] Later, [[spoiler:she [[RocksFallEveryoneDies tries to destroy the entire building to kill you regardless of the Vita Chambers]]]], and then [[spoiler:sabotages the ballast tanks on the escape boat to so that it can only handle enough weight that she can escape]]. ''Then'' [[spoiler:when you're on the final leg of the run to the boat, she's got a huge stack of explosives waiting for you at the door.]]
** To a lesser extent, the Leadhead Splicers. How do their small arms do so much damage to you, a hulking armored superhuman? They use the same heavy .50 cal ammunition that your [[GatlingGood giant machine gun]] does.

Added DiffLines:

* ArmoredClosetGay: [[HoYay Possibly.]] The Brute splicers seem to be homophobes, as they/he says they/he refer to Delta as a "poof" and they/he will "clip their wings"(i.e. indirectly calling Delta a fairy) along with saying there's "fucking sodomites everywhere", but under the Hypnotize 3 plasmid they/he become(s) much more chummy, to the point that they call Delta their/his "best mate" and how they/he feels comfortable around Delta.
