* DarkerAndEdgier[=/=]LighterAndSofter: ''Codename 47'', ''Silent Assassin'', and the 2016 ''Hitman'' all have a lighter, more adventurous "international man of mystery" feel to them, while ''Contracts'', ''Blood Money'', and ''Absolution'' have a darker and grittier atmosphere. ''Absolution'' in particular was inspired by grindhouse films and the works of Creator/QuentinTarantino, and is particularly lurid and wanton. The cleaner, more mainstream atmosphere of the 2016 ''Hitman'', in contrast, seems to be a response to the pushback ''Absolution'' received regarding the more wanton elements of ''Absolution'' (i.e. the latex-clad stripper nun assassins).

* GolfClubbing[=/=]OfficeGolf:
** There is a putter in Judge Strickland's office (''Absolution''). Handy if you want to imperonate him.
** In "Anathema" (''Hitman 2''), the Don's on the upstairs balcony, practicing his golf stroke. After he does, he stands there for a second looking at the ball, which is your cue to snipe him. The club is much weaker in this edition; it will take several whacks to drop an enemy.

*** Bonus Round! In "Basement Killing," Charlie's twin was not responsible for the sale of the weapons guidance system, and was a victim of mistaken identity. In "Meat King's Party", Campbell takes the fall for his brother, Malcolm, after the missing girl's father demands satisfaction and fails to get it from the courts.

** Mark Puriyah has an [=SG552=] stashed in his command center (fan-nicknamed the Big Bird Building), though he oddly never uses it. In real life, the grip is made of transparent plastic to let you see how much ammo you have at a glance. Mary Parchezzi and Alexander Cayne both carry Custom [=1911s=] loaded with magnum rounds.

** During an interrogation, Dexter tries to bludgeon 47 with a batonóbut on closer examination, it's actually a sex toy which Skurky left lying around. ("[[ImplausibleDeniability Hell, that ain't mine.]]") He later executes Skurky's girlfriend, "Mrs. Cooper", in front of witnesses after forcing her to dress up as Victoria. He also murders a hotel maid in order to stall Mr. 47.

** It's been said that Hitman 2016 is a reboot/sequel/prequel. It's a sequel, but takes place before ''Absolution'' in a "disconnected plot line" which, since it's in the past, is a prequel ''and'' a reboot because they overhauled most of the game. It's ''Blood Money 2'', essentially.

** You'd think you could just wait in the Cheng Chau bathroom and kick down the door in a surprise attack, but the Chief [[DefiedTrope didn't rise in rank by being stupid]]. If you're in the bathroom after everyone's entered the restaurant, the Chief will come and kick you out. You could, of course, just kill him then, but then the Blue Lotus negotiator will take off, causing a Game Over. Amusing to learn that Hitman's very first bathroom can't be used for ambush.
