* FamilyValuesVillain: The second game has [[spoiler:Vlad, who in both games tries to confine his battles to fellow criminals. It doesn't work, as Vlad's indirect connection to the killing of Max's wife and daughter, and his attempts to kill off Mona and the inner-circle result in Winterson's death and the two friends being forced to kill one another.]] Even {{lampshade|Hanging}}d by Max:
-->'''Max''':[[spoiler:Vladimir was one of those old-time bad guys with honor and morals, which made him almost one of the good guys.]]
** [[spoiler: Victor Bronco is running on a right-wing law and order ticket, but is actually heading both an organ theft ring, and pitting paramilitary groups against eachother to frighten people into voting for him. He also had his brothers murdered to gain access to the family fortune]]

* DrivingSong: "[[https://youtu.be/AzsiE44Lz_w?list=PLjACqN5i5sDVBPJGHevomO4YZd9wwVLkS Late Goodbye]]," the ThemeSong of ''Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne,'' is a melancholy country tune implying a never-ending SternChase

-->'''Bravura:''' To you and me, yes, but to the morons in the press, let's just say some people are more aqual than others.
* DisposableWoman: Both Max's wife and daughter were Disposable women in the classic sense. [[spoiler:Mona and Fabiana become examples as well]].
--> Max: ''I still hadn't forgiven myself for the [[spoiler:Mona]] business, but I knew that was just grief. The insanity that comes with losing the life you had once built...''

* ContinuityNod: Max guessing that he'll find the third game's final boss ([[spoiler:Victor]]) at an airstrip. "Rich people love to fly away." In the cemetary flashback, you can find the graves of Max's family, Detective Winters, Vinnie Gognitti (or what was left of him to bury) and Nicole Horne.

* ConvectionSchmonvection / HollywoodFire: On both games you have to navigate through burning buildings and the heat isn't a problem at all. If you touch the flames, however, you get damaged. In the sequel, characters at least cover their mouths against the smoke. A section of the third game takes place in a bombed building that's badly damaged enough to be practically ''melting'' under the heat, but Max and the enemies don't seem to mind much even when walking on glowing red beams. Max can still die from air loss if he fails to escape in time.

* ColdBloodedTorture: Max tortures Gognitti in order to find out Lupino's whereabouts in the first game[[note]] Because of the graphic novel style, it's unclear if Max ''actually'' tortures Gognitti, or simply threatens him. However, he ''does'' pick up someone else's gun, point it at Vinnie's head, and pull the trigger (it was out of ammo), which is what convinces Vinnie to talk. Psychological torture, if nothing else.[[/note]].

** Also, some of the TV shows and commercials in Portuguese have jokes which, in order to the player understand them, it requires not only to know the language, but a little of brazilian folklore too.
