Handling Spoilers - Do not ever conceal the name of the trope in a list of trope examples, the list on the work's page.
* [[spoiler:BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: Both DLC are this, particularly when it's revealed that the 'Alan' the player controls is actually a manifestation of his own rationality, which has to physically fight its way to the emotionally-distraught and self-destructive Wake to help him.]]

** A manuscript page has Rose saying Alan should ignore the trolls online who say Departure will never be released. Given that [[AlanWake a certain game]] was in DevelopmentHell , this could easily be seen as a TakeThat against the gaming community.

* LiveActionAdaptation: In addition to the Bright Falls prequel below, there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIG1xnYdlFo music video]] for "War" by PoetsOfTheFall, featuring Ilkka Villi, the model for Alan, as... [[ShapedLikeItself Alan]].

* LampshadeHanging: During a radio interview, the Old Gods of Asgard take offense to the observation that their comeback album sounds drastically different from their speaking voice. This is because it's actually being sung by PoetsOfTheFall.

* HeavyMithril: The two songs by Old Gods of Asgard imply that they're this. Their name and their decorating tastes pretty much confirms it. Also, PoetsOfTheFall, which even has a song that's playing in the middle of one of the more difficult fights in the game.

[[spoiler:As it turns out, the former was just trying to con Alan and never had Alice in the first place. The Dark Presence, on the other hand, really did have Alice the whole time.]]

** One mission has Alan escorted in the wood by Mott, [[spoiler: who kidnapped Alice,]] after a lift explosion caused Alan to lose his stuff. [[spoiler: As neither like each other, Mott only gives Alan a flare, so he must rely on Mott.

** Despite it likely being a coincidence (it's a variant spelling of Thor), Tor Anderson's first name is also the name of a publishing company that specializes in science fiction and fantasy books.

* BearTrap: All over the woods. They can be spotted with the flashlight. If you get caught in one, a Taken will spawn to try and score some cheap hits on the incapacitated Alan.

* BearTrap: All over the woods. They can be spotted with the flashlight.flashlight, and triggered by shooting them. If you get caught in one, a Taken will spawn to try and score some cheap hits on the incapacitated Alan. Oh, and did we mention that there is one section in the game with a ridiculous number of them where ''you have no weapons?'' Tread carefully, because those Taken that spawn don't go away after you get free.

** Many, ''many'' more exist for the knowledgeable troper: Pat Maine (Maine being the location for many StephenKing novels), Randolph (as in Randolph Carter, Creator/HPLovecraft's AuthorAvatar), Barbara Jagger (a name reminiscent of Literature/BabaYaga, tying in with Bird's Leg Cabin and her being called a "witch") and even Thomas Zane (reminiscent of Lovecraft's Erich Zann).
