Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Tanner keeps seeing black billboards with strange messages. When Tanner points them out to Jones, he doesn't seem too fazed by it, at one point telling Tanner the billboards have "been up for years."

**
Throughout the game, the player is aware of Tanner's coma, but Tanner himself isn't.isn't.
** Some of the people Tanner shifts into have ironic dialog, like hoping there's somebody watching over them as a disembodied Tanner hovers over their car. Or their passenger saying, "What's gotten into you? You've been driving like a man possessed."


Added DiffLines:

* DreamTellsYouToWakeUp: The first thing Tanner sees in his coma dream is a billboard with the words WAKE UP printed on it.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerPerversionPotential: Discussed. When Tanner manages to convince Jones that the shifting thing is real, Jones immediately starts speculating about what Tanner could do if he shifted into a good-looking female body. Tanner says firmly that in that case he'd keep both hands on the wheel.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseCars: The Nissan Skyline [=GT-R=], in R33 guise, is depicted as left-hand drive like every single drivable vehicle in the game, despite the fact that prior to the [=V35=]-series, no Skyline was ever produced in left-hand drive form, and it is physically impossible to have a [=LHD=] R32, R33, or R34 Skyline [=GT-R=]. The engine's twin turbochargers are sitting directly in the path that a hypothetical [=LHD=] steering column would have to pass through to connect to the steering rack.

Added DiffLines:

* BatmanGambit: Jericho pulls one off on ''all of San Francisco'': [[spoiler:very visibly steal the ingredients for cyanide gas and make a bomb threat to clear out downtown. He has no intention of detonating a bomb; he just wants the city evacuated so the path is clear for a prison break.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsHammy: Played with. The Jericho in Tanner's head is loud, bombastic, and prone to evil laughter. The real Jericho is quieter, smoother, and more in control of himself.


Added DiffLines:

* TerroristsWithoutACause: In the real world, Jericho steals ammonia and platinum, two ingredients for making cyanide gas, and threatens to detonate a bomb in San Francisco for no real reason. [[spoiler:Subverted when this lack of reason is what tips Tanner off to Jericho's ''real'' plot, evacuating the city to stage a massive prison break.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CameraScrew: Invoked and Averted with the Thrill Camera unlockable that grants an additional, drive-by camera that occasionally changes to a swaying on-the-hood camera. It's invoked in many stunt Dares where you have to perform an objective in that view where you can't see where you're going most of the time. Otherwise, it's averted in Activities, Challenges and Missions where you can't switch to that camera to avoid being screwed over as you cycle through the other views.

** Their voices and, if it's turned on, even their caption color is different. Real!Jericho has his subdued, calm and smug voice with red text while coma!Jericho has a blood-curdling tone to his voice, maniacal laughter, evil dialogue and his caption text is purple.
