* WhatTheHellHero: Killing Bullet Bob makes Ray wonder about this aloud; for even if Bob were a Replicant, he was a pretty fun and benign one. [[spoiler: He's actually always human, albeit seriously mentally unstable. The game will treat killing Ray as having killed a human, and this will be mentioned in a dialogue later in the game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FemmeFatale: Dektora is a classic example and yes, being highly attractive, classy and manipulative.


Added DiffLines:

* QuestionableConsent: Ray can hook up with 14-year-old Lucy. They don't have any sexual contact, but their relationship is definitely shown as one of romantic partners rather than father-daughter.


Added DiffLines:

* WomanInBlack: Dektora wears a black dress off-stage and she's quite dangerous. [[spoiler: She's either a replicant or their sympathizer.]]

** Ray can withstand several bullets and keep going. This might be a case of ArbitraryGunPower. [[spoiler: Or it might indicate he's a replicant with superhuman toughness.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Quite a few examples:
** Early in the game you'll find a brocuhre advertising a type of replicant model. This is a hint about who the game's randomly picked as a replicant. [[spoiler:E.g. if it mentions a Lolita model, Lucy will be a replicant.]]
** When investigating a bombing scene, Ray will comment on whether the bomber was an expert who could have only been trained off-world or an amateur. This is important because the replicants are all off-worlders. [[spoiler: If the bomber is an expert trained off-world, this means Sadik is a replicant. Otherwise he's just a sympathizer.]]


Added DiffLines:

* FromNobodyToNightmare: Dependent on your actions, [[spoiler:Ray can go from a rookie cop to a dangerous fugitive who's slaughtered more than a dozen policemen]].

* AntiVillain: Clovis. Much like Batty from the movie, he's a violent terrorist, but also an escaped slave who just wants to live in peace and extend his people's artificially-limited lifespan.



* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Most Asian characters speak like this, but especially Zubin.



* BigBad: Clovis, being the leader of the replicants.



* TheDragon: Sadik is Clovis's right-hand man and a proficient fighter.



* TheEveryman: Ray doesn't really have any outstanding personality quirks, and pretty much serves as a "blank slate" for the player to project himself onto.



** However, the test isn't one-hundred percent accurate; ask too many low-intensity questions and you won't evoke a strong enough response from the subject to confirm whether they're a Replicant, but ask too many high-intensity ones and they'll demand you to stop the test before you can get a conclusive result.

In addition, the test can give an inaccurate result if the subject is mentally unstable (e.g. Bullet Bob).



** There's also several to Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep (e.g. the conversation with Dektora is highly reminiscent of the dialogue with Luba Luft in the novel).



* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: A persistent theme throughout the game, made even more chilling by some of the VK results that come out as inconclusive.

* {{Interquel}}: The game takes place during the 1982 film, and you can meet Tyrell and Leon (before they're killed, of course), and Leon's hotel room has already been searched through by Deckard.

You can even see Deckard from the "snake scale" scene in the film in a photo you can analyze at one point.

* AlreadyDoneForYou: Frequently; many witnesses complain that they were already interviewed by another cop.
