* CelebrityParadox[=/=]FakeBand: The Old Gods of Asgard, whose songs are preformed by the real life band Music/PoetsOfTheFall. Poets of the Fall also have one of their own songs in the game, and Pat Maine notes that [[LampshadeHanging they really remind him of the Old Gods, but he can't figure out why.]]

* BadassNormal: Most of the cast who survives anything more than a single encounter with the Taken.
* {{Badass Grandpa}}s: It is implied that the Anderson brothers had fought the Dark Presence before and were able to hold the Presence back for many years until Alan came. They didn't exactly get away unharmed either; while not crazy (they never actually make up any thing that isn't true), they aren't exactly stable either. Regardless of their involvement with the Dark Presence, their music, rock stage and crazy banter definitely earn them this title.

* ThePowerOfRock: One of the best parts of the game has Alan and Barry defending a concert stage from waves of Taken. With a [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome kickass song]] blaring away. And ''very'' impressive pyrotechnics. And ammo everywhere.

* {{Brainwashed}}: Serena, who's been Darkness touched by Mr. Scratch into being an unabashed slut. She instantly gets better once you turn on the lights to her building, but still retains full memory of it. It's implied that she may have had sex with Scratch, which would make it effectively [[{{Squick}} supernatural date rape]].

* GeographicFlexibility: Bright Falls is apparently the kind of town where "everybody knows everybody", but the town and surrounding area have a dormant volcano, a logging camp, a national park, an abandoned mill, a radio station, a coal mine converted into a museum, a psychologist's lodge, ''two'' ghost towns, a decommissioned power plant, and a large dam. Given that the game is set in [[TheOtherRainforest the Pacific Northwest]], this isn't as far-fetched as it sounds.

* TheOtherRainforest: Remedy took literally ''thousands'' of photos of Washington state to ensure that Bright Falls looked authentic. Note that Remedy is a Finnish company so they would have had to [[DoingItForTheArt travel half-way around the world to do so]].

* CreatorInJoke: There's a QR code on the second level of Hartman's lodge. Scanning it opens a page [[http://www.alanwake.com/wp-content/uploads/constipation.gif on the Alan Wake website]] that is an animated GIF of the above cameo with the demotivator caption "That looks [[MaxPayne "Payne]][[JustForPun ful]]".

* InformedAbility: Some people find Alan's writing too cheesy to believe that he's a best-selling writer. Apart from the well-documented fact that there is no necessary connection between commercial success and literary quality, one of the first things we learn about Alan is that he has deep-seated fears of having become, or perhaps having always been, a talentless hack. [[spoiler: In addition, he wasn't exactly ''sane'' when he wrote Departure.]]
