* ArrestedForHeroism: If you listen to Walter, the guy locked up in the police station, he'll tell you a story that basically boils down to "I beat up a Taken, got shitfaced afterwards, and then got arrested because the police didn't believe my story."

* MurderBallad: "[[https://youtu.be/GLxb7m0j5Jg?list=PLjACqN5i5sDUo3MfGtqogz7P3u5JUm3c- The Poet and the Muse]]," a folky PowerBallad by HeavyMithril FakeBand [[Music/PoetsOfTheFall Old Gods of Asgard]], which tells a rather simplified version of the tale of Tom the Poet and his Muse. Tom used the magical properties of the lake he lived by to resurrect the Muse by RewritingReality when she drowned in its waters. When Tom discovered she CameBackWrong,
-->He took her in without a word for he saw his grave mistake\\
And vowed them both to silence deep beneath the lake\\
Now, if it's real or just a dream one mystery remains\\
For it is said, on moonless nights they may still haunt this place

* SubliminalSeduction: The Old Gods of Asgard's "Balance slays the Demon" has a small section with reversed and sped up lyrics. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRcLYeuK8ZU Play it the right way round]] and you get [[spoiler:"It will happen again, in another town. A town... called Ordinary."]]

The game was going to be a PC exclusive that would melt quad-cores with it's amazing graphics and physics. That was then scrapped when Remedy teamed up with Microsoft to make the game an Xbox 360 exclusive. They were later greenlit by Microsoft and produced a PC version for release nearly two years later in February 2012. It received similar critical reception as the Xbox version and paid back the porting costs within two days from release.

* DeathByGenreSavviness: [[spoiler:Nightingale]] becomes Genre Savvy by reading the manuscript pages. All this really means, though, is that [[spoiler:he realizes that the Dark Presence is going to grab him]] about two seconds before it actually does. Also a case of DeathByIrony since [[spoiler:after Alan escapes from him the second time, he shouts into the night something along the lines of "I'll catch you even if it kills me!"]]
