* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Hana's reason for not just bolting when Mr. Lam finds Wee Ming; she believes that Wee Ming is being sold into sex slavery, and is trying to keep her from the same fate Hana herself was subject to. When Deke asks her is it's still about the money, Hana bluntly tells him "not anymore."

* RapeAsDrama/RapeAsComedy: The pendulum swings back and forth between this in ''Fear Effect 2'', when Hana finds Rain strapped to the bug thing, she is genuinely horrified, and later asks Rain if she's alright. In the very next scene, both are cracking jokes about it.

* FaceHeelTurn: Wee Ming goes through one, should you pick Glas in the final boss fight. Losing to her just cements it.



** Siding with Hana and then losing the fight has her presumably being forced to work for Yim Lau Wong as she goes on a killing spree in the world while justifying it by saying that they could probably make the world better than it was originally. Wee Ming stands by her side.

* NewRulesAsThePlotDemands: The penultimate level reveals that when Wee Ming comes into contact with blood, anyone in the surrounding area mutates into a monster, and yet Lam somehow doesn't mutate in the brothel like all the prostitutes even though he was standing ''right next to Wee Ming''. Similarly, when [[spoiler:Lam]] mutates at the very end, Glas is unaffected by Wee Ming's BloodMagic even though ''he'' is standing nearby. Possibly justified by her powers being similar to [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk the Ark of the Covenant]], in that you have to look at her.

* NonStandardGameOver: Dying in the final boss fight in either game gives a cutscene from the bad guys perspective, with Yim Lau Wong sparing Hana but making her into Wee Ming's body guard as intended, or Glas dying, and Wee Ming completing a FaceHeelTurn and kick starting Yim Lua Wong's plan. In ''Retro Helix'', the Temple of Xi'an goes nuclear, and Yim Lua Wong contemplates that maybe his plan wouldn't be as hard as he thought.

* SkippableBoss: Hana has two during the Eight Immortals challenges: The first comes when one reveals himself to be the aqueduct worker who gave Hana a couple of items. His fight is avoided by simply not shooting the other aqueduct workers, as he will simply wave Hana through to the next challenge. [[spoiler: The second one comes as a result of a SadisticChoice for Hana: who does she miss most; Rain or her parents. Picking Rain will again see Hana waved through, but picking Hana's parents results in a fight against 2 of the teleporting demons, who suddenly are much,much more durable than the ones fought in the gardens.]]

* SameCharacterButDifferent: The cast of ''Fear Effect 2'' are notably different compared to their original incarnations. In the first game, Hana is somewhere between a PragmaticHero and an UnscrupulousHero, ruthless but still somewhat upstanding and the moral center of the team. In ''Fear Effect 2'', she's closer to a SociopathicHero, less empathetic and more likely to betray others. Deke's AffablyEvil characterization isn't as pronounced. Glas is still a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but has switched places as the most moral team member with Hana. Since ''Fear Effect 2'' is a prequel, this could be considered CharacterDevelopment. However, only a few days pass between the two games, so it's a rather abrupt change.
