** ''Blood Money'': Pine Cone is not an actual rehabilitation center. It's a safehouse for mobsters laying low. There's even statements that people who go into the clinic ''come out'' as alcoholics due to their being nothing to do in the place but lie back and indulge. Hitman carries around 4 cocktails in his pocket that can be used to spike the other drinks.

** In ''Contracts'', 47 is ambushed without warning and shot in the middle of a hit. As Diana explains in ''Blood Money'', in recent years a group known as The Franchise has entered the mix and been putting serious pressure on the Agency. According to Cayne (hardly the most reliable source ), he first got wind of 47's scent during the Chilean mission, which occured sometime between [=H2=] and ''Contracts.''

** The St. Petersberg levels in [=H2=], most noticeably "Tubeway Torpedo". Not only do you have to kill a Russian Army General, but there's an informant being held in captivity in the general's bunker.

** The son of Colorado's own Senator, Chad Bingham Jr., managed to bribe his way out of prison after an adventure with a stripper went bad. Write your congressman today and help correct this grave injustice. --Scratch that, it's an election year and daddy can't afford to let Junior upset any more apple carts.

** In ''Absolution'', 47 overhears a steel mill worker talking about an upcoming wrestling match. The challenger is Sanchez, your target in the upcoming mission "Fight Night". The worker currently owes a loan shark twenty G's, and ''another'' twenty to his girlfriend with which he bet on Sanchez. Not to worry, though, he's sure to win!
* ThouShaltNotKill: Some civilians are good friends with the soldiers and so will report any mysterious behaviour to them. It is advisable not to do anything stupid in front of them. Also, do not kill them. This will take your score down in the final results screen.

** Diana [[EnforcedTrope enforces]] this trope on the player when she back-stabs him in "Requiem". For her efforts, she is promoted to a top position in The Franchise, where she can do a lot more damage than you.



** One could argue that ''all'' of the games, even those without an explicit narrator, feature this to one degree or another.



* VideoGameCaringPotential: ''Silent Assassin'' and ''Absolution'' feature a few challenges or optional methods to save innocent bystanders from being killed by the antagonists.

* AcceptableBreaksFromReality: Kind of like how James Bond still manages to be a "secret" agent while being treated like an international rock star, somehow the ghoulish man with the telltale bar code tattoo and penchant for being near a ton of high-profile murders doesn't get detained on sight. As the games go on, though, it becomes less and less plausible, particularly as 47 never changes his standard appearance until he's neck-deep in the mission.

** In "Invitation to a Party", Spetnaz sends someone to thwart the defection of a General and kill his accomplice, the Ambassador, if he gets in the way. Germany can't delegate its way out of this one. "I give you money. Let me go, ja?"

** ''Codename 47'' and the demo of ''Silent Assassin'' used real names for firearms, except for one older gun that was simply called the "Derringer", but the full release of the latter changed all the names to generic or false ones, and every game since then has continued the trend. Apparently gun producers don't like their weapons to be associated with bad killings, as opposed to 'good' killings? Or perhaps IO just didn't want to pay for licensed gun names

** As a corollary to that, the SLP.40 S can easily become your best friend in ''Blood Money''. It is less complicated to use than 47's Silverballer and, since many guards come equipped with a regular SLP.40, ammo is very easy to come by.
** Chokey chokey! One of the most useful bits of equipment is the simple fiber wire garrote. It's silent, can't be picked up by metal detectors or frisked, and is always sure to kill a target. In ''Absolution'', using the fiber wire lets you automatically drag away bodies to hide.

** It's been said that Hitman 2016 is a reboot/sequel/prequel. It's a sequel taking place after ''Absolution'' that also contains a prequel tutorial chapter showing 47's induction to the ICA ''and'' is a reboot because they overhauled most of the game and quietly dropped the clone aspect of 47's backstory. It's ''Blood Money 2'', essentially.
