* 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.]]

** If you side with Hana, she kills Glas for his attempt to kill Wee Ming Lam. Mr. Lam transforms into a monster and becomes the FInalBoss. Hana kills Yim Lau Wong while burning the brothel to the ground. Wee Ming Lam simply disappears.
** 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 Lam stands by her side.
** If you side with Glas, he kills Hana believing that she was being deluded about the prophecy. Wee Ming Lam transforms into a monster and becomes the FinalBoss for Glaus. When she's defeated, she becomes a paper doll that Glaus picks up and takes with him as he escapes and burns the brothel to the ground in Hana and Deke's names.
** If Glas dies, Wee Ming Lam uses his blood to fulfill the prophecy where she now roams the world and can transform anyone she looks at into a monster.
** On Hard mode (unlocked after beating the game once), you can TakeAThirdOption by siding with both Hana and Glas. Hana fights Mr. Lam. Wee Ming Lam completes her prophecy and promises Hana and Glaus that their sacrifices will be repaid in full. Glas shoots Yim Lau Wong and causes him to fall into a pit. [[spoiler: Deke is brought back to life with no memory of his death and Glas grows a new arm.]]

* 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.

No matter how fitting it sounds, ''Fear Effect'' [[DoNotConfuseWith isn't]] [[TheCoconutEffect what you get for playing too much]] ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]'', although [[HypocriticalHumor coincidentally]], they're both horror games.

An action/adventure/horror game published by Eidos Interactive and released midway through the original UsefulNotes/PlayStation's life cycle, the game is the tale of three merciless mercenaries--Hana, Glas, and Deke. The daughter of a rich and powerful businessman has run away, and the trio have learned of this via an inside source and plot to find her. Although, the three of them plan to ransom her back to her father if all goes well. However, everything is not what it seems to be, and the girl in question is the key to an epic ordeal--possibly involving the fate of the world itself.

Once she defeats him, Wee Ming promises to repay Hana and Glas for their sacrifices, and that she will never forget Hana before disappearing. The King of Hell attempts to attack Hana, only to get shot down by Glas. The King falls down a pit, which causes the area that Glas and Hana are in to start collapsing around them, causing them to flee for their lives. Crawling out of the now destroyed brothel, both are surprised to see Deke alive and well, with Glas surprised to see his once severed arm has grown back.
