* {{Gorn}}: There ''is'' a reason this game is called one of the most gruesome games ever created. Most of it is even PlayedForLaughs.

* AsYouKnow: No one will believe that Steve has amnesia. His mom will call him out on "faking" it, and eventually the whole town will assume you are, but plays along with Steve's "charade" by giving you information about the town anyway.

** Marv, Steve's dad, isn't that insane either, [[spoiler: just ''deeply'' traumatized from all the sexual abuse he has endured from his wife.]]

* ADateWithRosiePalms:
** After you've given Deputy Loomis a porno magazine and leave the evidence room, a cutscene will play of the sheriff catching him...red-handed. What follows is the least violent scene in the game of the sheriff hitting him with a newspaper, yet it's all shown in shadow.
** [[spoiler: Mr. Pottsdam masturbates to his daughter, Stephanie, by watching her through a hole in the bathroom wall.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Characters have unique dialogue based on how the player progresses through the game. Nearly everyone has some sort of comment based on how the plot unfolds.

** Similarly, there's the pornographic photo of Miss Whaley and Principal Herrill; despite being a minor plot device to getting a new weapon, almost everyone in town will have unique reactions to it if you show it to them.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: The Lodge only lets men join, and some of the flavor text inside implies even harsher views on women as well. [[spoiler:Probably applies to the Harvesters too, given how they designed their female characters, among other design choices]].

* BossInMooksClothing: The Agent in the Temple of Abstinence won't attack unless provoked, and if you choose to do so you'll quickly find his rapidfire pistol with extreme knockback was not worth the fight.

* ChainsawGood: Subverted. You can pick up a chainsaw (after killing its former owner, a birthday clown), and it is one of the most powerful melee weapons in the game. However, it has limited fuel, burns through its ammo supply quickly, and by the time you get it, you’ll probably have much more reliable weapons on hand.

* GainaxEnding: The Lodge itself is absolutely nothing like the rest of the game, shifting from one unrelated environment to another. The reason for this is revealed at the end of the level - see "The Ending Changes Everything" for an explanation.

Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Killing Stephanie during regular gameplay does not affect the game any differently then when you kill a normal Harvest resident. [[spoiler: What makes this weird is that the Sergeant of Arms tells Steve that retrieving her spinal cord is the final task to getting released from the virtual world of Harvest and wake up as a serial killer, since Stephanie is a real person just like him.]] It's understandable why the developers didn't do anything different with her since it would have ruined the plot, but still...

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the transition between days, Steve dreams of [[spoiler:a man's eyes coming out of their sockets. Turns out it's a [[GuideDangIt bonus cutscene for a specific weapon kill on a specific character.]]]]

** The Annual Blood Drive, aka blood donation, is mentioned several times throughout the game, and Steve just assumes they mean giving blood through a needle, as it's usually done. When he says this to his mother, she says that they don't use needles. [[spoiler: Damn right they don't; they decapitate the donater.]]

* AxCrazy: Almost everyone, but special mention goes to [[spoiler: Miss Whaley, Mr. Pottsdam, Jimmy James and Steve's mother for trying to outright hurt/murder someone.]] Everyone else is just ordinary crazy, weird people. [[spoiler: Steve becomes AxCrazy in the bad ending as well.]]
