* AlienLandmass: Xen, the final level of the game, is a surreal alien landscape with floating, oddly-shaped landmasses and wonky physics that make it difficult to navigate.

** One of the deathmatch maps, [=Halls2=], is based of of a similarly constructed netplay level in the first ''{{VideoGame/Marathon}}'', Halls of Death. [=Halls3=] for ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Deathmatch'' shows the same resemblance.

** A little for the overall franchise: You can play the original Half-Life [[DesignatedHero so sociopathically you make THE US MILITARY look nice by comparison,]] [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential killing every character you come across that isn't considered important by the story the second you get your hands on a weapon]] [[KickTheDog (including your fellow scientists)]], and yet by Half-Life 2 Gordon Freeman will be so highly revered the other characters consider him a messiah.

* BadassNormal: While Freeman, Shepard, Green and Colette have special powered armor suits, Barney Calhound was able to survive the Black Mesa incident and even travelling to Xen only wearing a common helmet and kevlar vest equipment. Extra points for Alyx for having no special protection at all and being able to fight alongside Gordon.

** One of the worst is a giant fan near the silo area. The ''only'' way to turn it on is by climbing down a ladder onto a narrow catwalk beneath the blades and pressing a button. The catch is that the fan blades touch the area anyone climbing the ladder up would be, so in order to survive the task you have to press the button and then haul ass and hope the fan doesn't catch you on the way out. One episode of the "FreemansMind" machinima openly gripes about this.
