* AussiesWithArtillery: The BIDF are pretty much an {{Expy}} of Australian soldiers and they are behind the navy blockade and airbombing of Banoi and Palanai. ''Riptide'' gives us John Morgan, specifically identified as a Australian sergeant who had gone through SAS survival training.

** Given her actions the survivors would have been well justified to leave Jin at the church, hang a sign around her neck saying, "Slightly retarded child. Please adopt" and call it a day. [[spoiler: She steals the truck to help out the imprisoned gangs despite being warned to stay away, leading to her being pack raped and sowing distrust between her and the other survivors, then when Ryder White is trying to hold the survivors off at gunpoint she mouths off and angers him, instead of warning that his wife had become a zombie and about to attack him. Which results in him [[AmbiguousSituation accidently]] shooting and killing her.]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoHeroDiscount: Most of the survivor base areas have vendors who will sell you equipment. Despite the fact that the island has been overrun with zombies (thus making money useless), the fact that you constantly perform missions to help them, and the fact that they face certain death if you are killed, the vendors still insist on charging you money for their items

** You can get around this, however. If you've selected to follow a quest with its current objective set outside the prison (such as the various continuous events to gather food/water/etc.), and quit the game or reload a checkpoint, you will spawn in near the objective in question. [[TheDevTeamThinksofEverything If you do this, you can use the fast travel system to re-enter the prison, even if you can't use it to get out of it.]]

* AccidentalTruth: Possible. [[spoiler: Charon]] gets the survivors to side with him over Col. Ryder White when he claims that [[spoiler: White was going to nuke Banoi to contain the outbreak. While White was never planning such an action, his superiors reportedly decided to in the sequel when it was clear Banoi was lost]].
** [[spoiler:However, reports of Banoi being nuked were used by a character trying to back up his claim that the next island (Palanai) was also going to be nuked, a claim he later confirmed to be a lie. It is never established if he was also lying about Banoi's fate, though the survival of John Sinamoi (as seen in Dead Island: Epidemic) would indicate he was]].

** Some of the weapons dealers flat out say things like "I'll be rich by the time this blows over," so it could just be them alone trying to make a buck.
