* {{Determinator}}: Let's face it: Patrick pretty much IS this trope. Let's see here: Survive UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne? Check. Survive at least decades of conflict with Otto Keisinger? Check. Get through Irish customs unnoticed in order to fulfill a life debt? Check. Fight through wave after wave of unspeakable abominations that have racked up quite the kill count? Check. Handle the ArtifactOfDoom with fairly marginal damage? Check. Kill off the undead and superhuman Covenant siblings one by one? Check. Go into HELL to defeat Keisinger? Check. Survive [[spoiler: Jeremiah]]'s betrayal? Check. Take down the [[spoiler: EldritchAbomination]] that helped cause this godforsaken train wreck in the first place? Check. Basically, by the end, he is pretty much surviving more-or-less because it seems like he can't bloody DIE.

* BrokenBridge: Sure'n you'll be hearing Patrick's [[{{Oireland}} Oirish]] brogue declaring a door to be "Stuck!" or "Won't budge!" and awful lot, boyo.

* SetAMookToKillAMook: The game had a resurrection power, but it was rather weak since it could only work on one enemy at a time, and resurrected enemies would crumble to dust after a couple dozen seconds and also had a random chance of turning on you and attacking you.
** Of course, the same spell only works on monsters. If used on a living person, it only lets you give [[PsychicAssistedSuicide one type of order]].

* SetAMookToKillAMook: The game had a resurrection power, but it was rather called Invoke. High cost and weak since at first, but if you leveled it could only work on one enemy at a time, up and resurrected enemies would crumble to dust got into the habit of Invoking every creature you kill you'd soon have a small army of disposable minions following you around. They vanish after a couple dozen seconds time and also had a random chance of turning on attack you and attacking you.

if you give [[PsychicAssistedSuicide one type accidentally damage them, but are otherwise quite handy as meat shields against large numbers of order]].enemies.

Added DiffLines:

** If you're fast enough, you can look behind you at the very start of the game. The giant hound that helps you in the fight is standing right behind you on the other side of the gate before running off. It's been ''following you'', thus helping to explain why it's there.

* PuzzleBoss: A lot of the bosses are pretty much invincible until they run out of juice. Lizbeth goes invincible with her LimitBreak, and you have to wait for her to tucker out before you can take her head off. Ambrose gets all [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever gigantimous]], and you have to wait until he's distracted so that you can [[ForMassiveDamage hit his weak point for massive damage]]. Aaron is invulnerable until one of his spears gets stuck, at which point you rush in and finish him off.
