* ArtifactOfDoom: The Orbs. [[spoiler: If, for whatever reason, the individual who discovers one is unable to master its power, then the Shadow that guards it will relentlessly pursue him, killing everyone he encounters in the process. When shattered, the orbs [[SupernaturalFearInducer emit maddening energy]], making them handy [[TortureTechnician torture enhancers]], as revealed by Agrippa.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PayEvilUntoEvil: [[spoiler: Bloodcurdingly subverted. Alexander convinces Daniel to [[TortureTechnician learn and practice the art of torture]] on innumerable victims by claiming repeatedly that, as Daniel himself puts it in a diary entry, "they are all wicked men." The Baron manages his training so well, Daniel all too naturally [[HidingBehindReligion invokes God to justify his crimes]] and resorts to {{Dehumanization}}, calling the prisoners "monsters" at one point.]]

* HidingBehindReligion: In one of his diary entries, Daniel says he is "thankful for God [[spoiler:sending these [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Dehumanization monsters]] our way as they will serve as the instruments of my salvation," referring to the prisoners whom Alexander assures Daniel [[PayEvilUntoEvil are all criminals and therefore may be freely tortured]] in order to harvest vitae.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoEscapeButDown: Played on throughout the whole game. While Daniel has to go up some stairs and ladders at times, he cannot escape the castle until he "descends into the darkness" following one of the very first instructions the player is given, all the while fleeing from various opponents. Taken most literally towards the end of the game when [[spoiler:Daniel has finally gained access to the Inner Sanctum by recreating an orb, and he must run down stairs with the Shadow hot on his heels.]]

* EasterEgg: There is a letter from "A.S Laboratories" hidden behind some books on a bookshelf in one of the rooms that mentions a Space-Span Device. A.S Laboratories is the same Aperture Science from the ''{{Videogame/Portal}}'' series and the Space-Span device is the portal gun. If you find the letter, at the end in the final room, the body covered in chains and tied to the ceiling is a direct ShoutOut to GLaDOS, and the dialogue between Justine and Clarice changes: Justine requests that Clarice post a letter to the mysterious A.S Laboratories to let them know that she is "still alive". The entire set up of the game acts as a ShoutOut to ''{{Videogame/Portal}}''.

** For good reason, too -- the DLC was part of the "Potato Sack" AlternateRealityGame carried on through several indie games, leading up to ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. The backstory for the ARG explains that GLaDOS hijacked all of the games, adding in references to potatoes and so on, and unlocking hints in one game would lead to certain tasks in another in the Sack, all which would unlock clues and actually managed to knock the release time of ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' down by several hours, all by fan cooperation.
