* UnusableEnemyEquipment: Played straight and justified in one part where you have to disguise yourself as a Big Daddy, which requires trekking all over the level to find the necessary parts. An audiolog reveals that Big Daddies have their suits grafted to their skin and bound to their bodily systems, so you've can't just kill one for its suit.

** Ryan is very vocal about his atheism and even banned religion in Rapture. At the same time he preaches his own ideology about "the Great Chain" which unites all people and will lead all mankind to a better state if people behave in a certain way, and says the Chain is "too powerful and too mysterious" for governments to control. The idea of such an invisible, transcendental and ultimately unknowable force guiding people to a better future is divinity in everything but name.

Sophia Lamb points this out explicitly in the second game.

** The final straw was Ryan nationalizing Fontaine Futuristics, scuttling his entire philosophy in the process. Ryan Industries was the only beneficiary of this move, as Ryan could not complete with Fontaine's business on even terms. [=McDonagh=] knew (though Ryan did not) that people would interpret this to mean the City Council could seize any business deemed ''too'' profitable. In the end, Ryan established a OneNationUnderCopyright NotSoDifferent from the collectivist surface he despised.

*** In other words? Fontaine ultimately had little to do with the fall of Rapture. It was simply the perfect place for a man like him to operate. Rapture was doomed from the start.

** The Big Daddy that gives Dr. Suchong his KarmicDeath is apparently Subject Delta, the PlayerCharacter of the second game. This also implies that the Little Sister Suchong gives a smack to is Eleanor Lamb.
*** Subverted in Burial At Sea: it was Masha Lutz that was there, along with her friend Leta. Both of them had just pair-bonded to a Bouncer (with help from Elizabeth) and were going to show "Papa Suchong". Suchong, being a heartless idiot, doesn't realize what they've just accomplished until after he smacks one of them in the face, green-to-red lights included. Cue getting drilled by a big daddy two inches from his face. Masha and Leta are rescued by Jack in the Good Ending, with Sally being the third girl in the Bathysphere.

*** Creates an even bigger stew when you realize that ''Infinite'' actually has a newer model of shotgun by nearly twenty years, despite said game taking place ''forty-eight years before the original''. But then again, ''Infinite'' had [[RealityWarper a good reason for that.]]

* BeneathSuspicion: Not only is [[spoiler:[[TreacherousQuestGiver Atlas secretly using you to get control of Rapture]]]], but [[spoiler:Atlas is Frank Fontaine]], an apparently PosthumousCharacter that you would only know about if you listen closely to [[spoiler:Peach Wilkins]]' pre-boss rant and the audio diaries scattered throughout the levels that some players completely pass up.

* TemptingFate: Peach Wilkins has an Audio Diary where he decides to meet with Fontaine due to the poor lifestyle of him and his comrades. Near the end of it, Peach states that things can't get any worse. The other two of Peach's Audio Diaries make it clear how terrified of Fontaine he and everyone else is.
