** Fodder for some black humor in "Blackwater Park". As 47 presses the elevator panel to go up, a gasping delivery boy carrying a big tray of sushi dives in the elevator at the last minute. His attempts at small-talk [[UncomfortableElevatorMoment fall flat]] on the mute Mister 47. When the elevator doors open, [[DeconstructedTrope he gets shot to pieces]] by Layla's guards while 47 zips up the emergency hatch unharmed.

Layla will then fetch his sushi platter and bring it into the boardroom. You can still avenge the delivery guy by spiking the fish with poison.

In ''Blood Money'', they can be given a wide range of [[GunAccessories gun accessories]] and different ammo types. There are just so many cool things to add-on, turning it from a fairly-bland pistol to an apocalyptic nightmare with a jumbo clip, scope, laser sight, full-auto capability, and other deadly extras. The M4 carbine (did anyone say "'''drum magazine'''"?, [=MP5=] Tactical, SPAS-12 and [=WA2000=] can be modded for similar purposes.

** In "The Murder of Crows", if you pop Raymond but neglect Aneglina for too long, she'll climb aboard the Secretary's float and slit his throat. Yes, she is that crazy.

** The Chicago Outfit is vaguely hinted at, but not mentioned, in the city levels of ''Absolution''. Dom Osmond represents the 'bad' sort of mafia, peddling vice and beating his seditious workers to death with a baseball bat. Tommy Clemenza represents the 'good' sort of mafia -- y'know, the gentlemanly type.

** Dr Ort-Meyer in ''Codename 47''. Seeking to birth a new human race, the authorities condemned his experiments. He escaped to France, and later Romania where he concealed his illegal research in the cellar of a hospital. He has juice with the Hong Kong Triads as well as other gangs.

** The guards have no random patterns in "The Jacuzzi Job"; the secretary in the safe room is the random element here. But she isn't too hard to dodge, and you can make minor adjustments based on what she does.

** Blood Money went marginally more reasonable by only allowing 47 to start out a mission with one handgun, one SMG, and one unconcealable weapon alongside his non-gun equipment. Any collected handguns and SMGs can still be concealed on 47's person... but the inclusion of an ICA weapons storage crate could allow the player to feign realism.

Players are [[GameplayGrading scored on stealth]], so ideally, you should only kill your target(s) and depart without alerting anyone, just like a real assassin. That said, if (hah! ''when'') you are discovered, or if you become addicted to the RagdollPhysics, you can Rambo your way through everything in your path--but you won't escape the consequences if you leave a trail of bodies behind you. The missions aren't really designed for FPS-style killing, and you'll soon find that stealth is far more fun and rewarding. (Or you can just cave their heads in with a fire extinguisher, that works too.)

* DeadlyDoctor: ''Paging Dr. Cropse''... When he's not checking into hotel rooms with horrible aliases, 47 has his pick of doctor disguises: a psychotherapist in the Romanian asylum, and a surgeon in the cult hospital. Careful with that scalpel.

** ''Blood Money'', in turn, reveals that Dr. Ortmeyer's cloning techniques are being "circulated" through the hands of various organizations including The Franchise... but due to missing details, or maybe some special ingredient (the "47th chromosome") known only to Ortmyer, all of the clones are flawed. Specifically, they're all albino and mysteriously die after one or two years. In ''Absolution'', we get the Praetorian Guard, the poster child for The Franchise after 47 takes a weed-whacker to the organization.
