* LightEmUp: The parasitic brain slugs [[WeakenedByTheLight hate direct light]]. They can be heard screaming as they force their victim to move away.

* AssholeVictim: A tribe of evil children in the beginning will try to kill you repeatedly, and run up to their treehouses when they fail. Unfortunately, while they're safe from ''you'', the giant spider has no such limitations.

* NoSidePathsNoExplorationNoFreedom: The game and puzzles are much more rigid than Braid. But secrets are still out there.

** In one of the puzzles, there are two compressors with buttons. One compressor crushes you if you ''do'' press the button, and the other crushes you if you ''don't''. Good luck remembering that, and especially when you're being chased by the hostiles.
* VideogameCaringPotential: The protagonist is a child. A cute kid who is getting slaughtered by everything. Give it a few deaths and you'll be dodging the puzzles for his sake, not your own.
* VideogameCrueltyPotential: After beating the game the player has the option of replaying any of the chapters. Kind gamers can enjoy their favorite puzzles over and over while helping the boy reach his goal. Sadistic players can see just how many different ways its possible to kill the poor kid...

The game's story is simple. You control a [[NoNameGiven nameless]] young boy in [[EldritchLocation Limbo]], searching for his sister. There is no dialog or text of any kind to guide you. Just the boy and an incredibly [[SceneryGorn dark]], [[EverythingTryingToKillYou oppressive]], [[CrapsackWorld crapsack]] environment. There are many deadly puzzles, challenges and traps that can get you killed, in many [[{{Gorn}} shockingly violent]] ways. A Gore Filter can make the deaths less grisly, but no less terrifying. When combined with the protagonist's limited moveset -- he's entirely unarmed and can only jump, push/pull objects (like boxes and levers), climb ledges, and swing on ropes -- ''Limbo'''s sense of helplessness and trepidation is intense. Something of a huge contrast and surprise between regional ratings, the [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications ESRB]] somehow let the game pass with only a T for Teen rating, while [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications PEGI]] gave it an 18, the strictest rating they have. If you see the [[TheManyDeathsOfYou more graphic deaths]], you'll understand why you'd think the ESRB would have, or even ''should'' have given it an M for mature rating instead.
