->''"For every choice, there is an echo, with each act we change the world. One man chose a city free of law and god, but others chose corruption, and so the city fell. If the world was reborn in your image, would it be paradise or perdition?"'' -->-- '''Sofia Lamb'''

* MacGuffinSuperPerson: The game is centered around the quest of the player, a Big Daddy formerly bonded to a Little Sister, to find that Little Sister - who happens to be BigBad Sophia Lamb's daughter and the messiah of the religion she founded. [[spoiler:Subverted near the end, when she becomes a Big Sister and helps you fight your way out of the city, and is incredibly powerful.]]

* FiringOneHanded: How Delta uses all his weapons. ** You can, however, hold weapons with both hands to zoom in and fire more accurately. This, of course, prevents you from using plasmids.

** Actually, you can get the best ending even if you kill Stanley and Gil. * EasterEgg: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNqsJbTwxM0 The Unstable Teleport Plasmid]].

* EnvironmentalSymbolism: The vista of ''2'''s ending varies depending on your [[KarmaMeter moral choices]] during the game. The best ending shows a [[LighthousePoint lighthouse]] under a stunning sunrise, a more ambiguous ending has a tiny glimmer of sunlight surrounded by a darkening sky, while if you were a ''real'' bastard it's a bloody hurricane up there.

* GraffitiOfTheResistance: In an EvilVsEvil example, Lamb's followers write anti-Andrew Ryan (the BigBad of the previous game) graffiti all over the place (including in UV ink on the posters which came with the collecter's edition of the game). Despite being his ideological opposite, Lamb isn't any better (indeed, in some ways she's worse given [[spoiler: Ryan couldn't kill his own son even though he was a LaserGuidedTykeBomb sent to kill him, while Lamb was willing to use her daughter as a test subject]]).

** {{Mook}}s hit by the level 2 Hypnotize spell will become your ally, rather than simply attacking both you and enemies. The level three version will turn the bigger ones to your side, such as the big daddy. It can be quite satisfying to watch them turn on their former buddies and deliver a CurbStompBattle to them. * HeelRealization: Again, [[spoiler: Grace Holloway, if you choose to spare her.]] --> [[spoiler:'''Grace Holloway''']]: You had me under a gun, and you just walk away? No monster alive turns the other cheek. Ha, no monster does that. ''(horrified)'' ...[[ItCanThink A]] ''[[ItCanThink thinking man]]'' [[ItCanThink does that]].

* HumanSacrifice: [[spoiler: This is what Sofia has in mind for her daughter.]] * {{Hypocrite}}: The architect hired to build Ryan Amusements had a lot of ideas that he thought would delight children, but Ryan vetoed them all in favor of making the amusement park one big propaganda-fest preaching about the general awesomeness of Rapture and [[ScareEmStraight the terrible evils of the surface world.]] One of those evils? Authorities denying artists the chance to realize their own visions, and instead demanding that their work promote the authorities' political agenda... ** Sofia Lamb is absurdly possessive for someone who preaches both collectivism and alturism, and goes not fanatical lengths to stop Delta. For example, she leaves the surface because, people were twisting HER collectivist ideas. [[spoiler: The most notable point is when smothers Eleanor to sever the pair-bond, and kill Delta. Keep in mind their was a strong chance this would have killed Eleanor as well. However, she didn't care as she couldn't stand the notion of anyone else having influence over Eleanor; and would rather her to die, than have Eleanor be independent. She's a worse parent than Andrew Ryan.]]

* PlayingThePlayer: In regards to [[spoiler:Sinclair.]] The game sets them up with the games previous plot twist deeply entrenched in the players mind at all times with regards to the character. [[spoiler:Many players thought Sinclair would betray them at the earliest possibility- Sinclair never even ''thinks'' about double-crossing Delta even once. This makes his eventual MindRape and your neccessary need to put him down a much stronger PlayerPunch.]]

** Pretty smart of her to stay out of [[spoiler: Atlas]]'s plot to finally eliminate Ryan, but it was also lucky that Jack [[spoiler: later disposed of Atlas himself]] and never found out she existed.

--> '''Ryan:''' I spoke to a young man exiting the park after the grand opening, asking him what, if anything, he had learned here. He said his chores didn't seem so bad anymore - as long as mother wouldn't send him to the surface.
