* PermanentlyMissableContent: Averted with the [=DomZ=] serpent RecurringBoss. Even if you beat all of them without ever taking a photograph, you can find the skeletal remains of one in a cave that you can photograph instead. Played straight, however, with the [=DomZ=] sarcophagus; don't get a picture while fighting them in the Slaughterhouse? You're stuck with an animal marker there and no way to get the album.

* AchillesHeel: The Alpha Sections are vulnerable in their air tanks, and can be taken out if hit from behind. (One will fix another's tank, if there are two of them together. This can actually let you knock the buddy out, too, if you get the first one to face away while being fixed.)

* BilingualBonus: At least one song in the game isn't ''all'' in ForeignSoundingGibberish--the mini-game/competition song has some lyrics in Spanish, about pretty much what you'd expect a mini-game-song to be about (specifically, racing).
** Also, bits and pieces of Secundo's dialogue are in Spanish.

Needless to say, the gaming community pretty much went nuts when Creator/{{Ubisoft}} surprised ''everyone'' at their press conference/marketing event in mid-2008 by showing a trailer for ''Beyond Good & Evil 2''. From that point on, the game got stuck in the ninth circle of DevelopmentHell, and seemed to go through endless rumor cycles of being cancelled, not cancelled, moved, and more. As of E3 2016, the game is reportedly on slow, but active development, as Michel Ancel is busy working on his game ''VideoGame/{{Wild}}''.

''VideoGame/{{Wild}}''. In October 2016, after a string of concept art posts from Ancel on Instagram, [[https://www.facebook.com/beyondgoodandevil/photos/a.168617863187768.35250.131546723561549/1068744866508392/?type=3&theater the Beyond Good and Evil Facebook page]] confirmed that the game is in development at Ubisoft Montpellier.

* ShoutOut: There's a pretty obscure reference to the creator's most well known creation, ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}''. There's even a fairly well-hidden reference to ''VideoGame/TonicTrouble,'' an even ''more'' obscure game by the same creator. To elaborate, the reference to ''Rayman'' is in the Factory dungeon. In a fairly out of the way hidden area, you can find a cow skeleton. If you examine the skeleton, you can find a small bug sticking on to it. The bug is Aedes Raymanis, or Rayman mosquito. Fittingly enough, the mosquito is Bzzit, the first boss from the original Rayman and one of Rayman's friends. The ''Tonic Trouble'' reference is the lead character of that game, Ed, advertising K-Starkos, a health item.

* CollectionSidequest: The animal photographs. You only need to take two at the very least, enough to pay your bills and advance the plot. The first ten also give you the enhanced zoom, which is highly useful for both the rest of the photographs and missions. Its primary purpose after that is to earn money, which can be done other ways. It's the easiest way to make money, though, and will give you plenty of overhead, especially if you buy the animal tracker which marks targets on the map.
