** If you use a trellis to break into the cathedral, this will prompt Tracer to congratulate you, and say "Never rely on high tech and weapons when there is a simpler solution at hand." [[spoiler: In the endgame, he advocates you destroy the world's global network and infrastructure.]]

** It's not *entirely* hopeless though. It's possible to work on some side quests if you manage to survive the initial assault, before you finally die. None of those are too important, but there is a little extra XP potential for fighting it out to the end. And of course it also lets you [[TakingYouWithMe kill more of your attackers]], if your the [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential vindictive type]].

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: The games contain an incredibly complex series of flags that influence almost everything you do. If you walk into the women's bathroom at UNATCO HQ, Manderly WILL remind you of it when you go to your mission briefings. Other dialogue options will be influenced depending almost entirely on what you do and when you do it. For example, a robber in Paris will hire you to case up the local bakery for some vials of Zyme hidden away in the oven. If you break into the place before even talking to him, you'll mention that you already broke into it.

* FriendlyRivalry: After averting the [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs triad war]], the two triad dragon heads, Max Chen and Gordon Quick, head over to Max's nightclub to celebrate. They instead opt to get into a... "measuring contest", comparing how far each other's criminal empires reach.

* NeverBringAKnifeToAGunFight: [[spoiler:Maggie Chow]] will show up at the [[spoiler:[=MJ12=] lab]], scorn you and then [[CallingYourAttacks state hostilities]], nanosword in hand. You will likely get to shoot first. Some Women in Black are also seen with the nanosword as a weapon of choice, but since they are augmented they can soak up more damage and thus are much more dangerous.
