* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The Orange Clan ending. The Oracle manages to access Jade's power, but Lukas and Carla are allowed to live and the new ice age is stopped. Life basically goes on as it does usually, but Lukas thinks that one day the Orange Clan will reveal their true plan for the world, whatever that may be.]]
** [[spoiler:The Purple Clan ending is this as well, although much worse. Most of humanity dies in the new ice age, and the rest (including Lukas and Carla) are being hunted down and killed, and although they do manage to fight them due to Lukas' powers, their chance of victory is small. There ''is'' a small glimmer of hope in that Lukas and Carla's child is the new Indigo Child and savior of humanity according to Lukas' dreams.]]

* DoWellButNotPerfect: When Carla/Tyler is questioning Lucas in his office. [[spoiler:Failing the QTE's which appear alongside a bunch of green insects is more beneficial; it prevents Lucas from reacting to them and appearing hysterical to the questioner.]]
** GuideDangIt: The game never tells you that [[spoiler:failing [=QTEs=] is an ''option'', much less desirable.]]

* ElectiveBrokenLanguage: A Japanese-American bookstore owner Takeo speaks in stereotypical AsianSpeekeeEngrish fashion. It is later revealed that he does it merely because customers like "that wise old Japanese master stuff", and he was actually born in the US.

** In the early scenes you clearly see Bogart, the crow and the Oracle although you don't know their significance. Hell, you even see [[spoiler:Jade "The Indigo Child"]] rendered in a blue tint as part of the restaurant murder cutscene. Which makes the ending all the more conspicuous.
** There's even foreshadowing in the tutorial of all places - next to the blue screen you can see a [[spoiler:giant mite]] hanging from a wire.

* InfantImmortality: Averted at every opportunity. In the park scene, if you fail while trying [[spoiler:to save the kid who fell under the ice]] or don't even attempt to, he dies. In a flashback section [[spoiler:one, two or three kids will die]] if you don't find them in time. And, whatever ending you get, [[spoiler:Jade dies]].

* NippleAndDimed: In the censored versions of the game Carla's skin texture does not include nipples at all. You get to see her entire breast surface - but where the nipples are supposed to be [[BarbieDollAnatomy there's just regular flesh tone.]]

** Should it drop to zero, the character you're playing will snap and...well, kill themselves. However, you usually have some control over the meter, with only two decisions ([[spoiler:Tyler staying in New York, rather than leaving with Samantha, and choosing to let the boy drown rather than save him in the park]]) causing it to plummet precipitously.

** Plotwise the increasingly fantastic plot elements start to look like this after a relatively gritty and grounded start.

** Sam. The first time (out of three) we see her, she walks around with only a shirt on. The second time, she wears [[Stripperiffic a really skimpy dress]] to celebrate her and Tyler's anniversary. The first unlockable bonus scene features her and, let's just say it's the most NSFW thing about the game.

* AdvertisedExtra: Marcus. He's called the fourth protagonist by promotional material and GOG's description for the game, but you only play as him during two brief scenes, [[spoiler: and whether or not he dies is entirely irrelevant to the overall plot - he'll appear again during a sequence later to say some encouraging words before dropping out of the story altogther.]]

* BarbieDollAnatomy: Some versions. To get a less restrictive rating, some regions vastly edited the sexual content of the game. One such casualty was the final sex scene between [[spoiler: Carla and Lucas]]. While the sex scene remains in the game, it was severely cut down, with any shots showing naughty bits removed. However, one shot remains where you can see [[spoiler:Carla's]] breast in full - except in this version of the game she has no nipples.

* FissionMailed: You are unavoidably surrounded by police at one point, and Lucas even begins to recite a variant of his game over monologue. [[spoiler: Then his powers kick in....]]

* MultipleEndings: You can change the story at pretty much every chapter, right up to and including the end. Failure doesn't always result in a game over, although you might want to invoke them [[GottaCatchEmAll specifically to watch all the game content]]. At the end, there's three endings, depending on who [[spoiler: gets the Indigo Child]]; one [[TheEndOftheWorldAsWeKnowIt unambiguously bad]], and two which are somewhat arguable.

** The use of BulletTime and WireFu during the apartment escape, made [[LampshadeHanging more obvious]] when the scene involves [[Film/TheMatrix hanging from a helicopter then backflipping near a subway train]]. Then there's the fight between [[spoiler: Lucas and the Oracle]] which evokes the final fight in ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions''.

* SummonBiggerFish: [[spoiler: [[NiceJobFixingItVillain The Purple Clan resurrecting Lucas]], in a rare case of the PC being that bigger fish. He's ''not'' their ally by any means, but at the point where they bring him back, the Orange Clan is on the verge of winning; Lucas coming back represents their last chance to complete the Prophecy. And if Lucas comes out on top and gets the Indigo Child, they're far better off than if the Oracle gets it, since Lucas has no clue what the hell he's doing with the power of the Chroma and they can run back to the Net, while the Orange Clan will destroy them for good if they win. [[XanatosGambit They really can't lose.]]]]
