* ElevatorSnare: Just like the conveniently placed construction equipment. It's as if [[GeniusLoci The City wants to help the Runners in their rebellion.]]

** ''You'' try keeping your cool instead of disarming an enemy and using his weapon to utterly slaughter his comrades after you are treated one time too many to the sight of Faith falling dead on her side with the screen blacking out to the sound of "Arrest the suspect !"

** There is also Cyrillic characters in an elevator.

to:

** There While in-game Chinese is also correct (here the Traditional variant is used), translation at times seems to be somewhat lazy, with an omnipresent "非請莫入"(basically "no admittance without invitation/authorization") standing in for more detailed notifications, such as "Maintenance area".
** You will occasionally run into some Korean and
Cyrillic characters in an elevator.characters.

* FollowTheLeader: This game inspired First Person Shooters to emphasize movement. Games like ''VideoGame/{{Brink}}'' and the sequel to ''VideoGame/{{Prey}}'' quickly referenced this game as inspiration.

* WalkItOff: it's slightly disconcerting to have survived several bursts of automatic gunfire and recovered, only to corner the guy and get laid out by two consecutive {{Pistol Whipping}}s.

* CowboyCop: To the city police, it seems like the standard procedure to arrest a Runner can be boiled down to "fill the fucker with lead until they stop running. Then DoubleTap". Hell, it's not even unusual to have them shoot at you [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill with the heavy artillery]] ''before'' they actually order you to surrender ! Keep in mind that, in a PacifistRun, Faith actually does ''nothing'' but run away from them and won't even carry a weapon, meaning that there is absolutely ''no'' reason for them to use deadly force against her. Then again, [[JustifiedTrope the city IS a totalitarian state]], so abusive police forces are [[TruthInTelevision part of the bunch]] (even if breaking out the attack helicopters and armored SWAT teams for ''one'' unarmed woman running around the rooftops still sounds a bit much).

* CrapsaccharineWorld: According to The Runners. See AlternateCharacterInterpretation. Indeed, the city seems like a pretty nice place to live for an oppressive police state; it's a clean, sunny place where the people are healthy and the economy seems in good shape, which begs the question just what the deal is. Then again, [[CowboyCop the previous entry]] may be a good indicator that something is indeed very, ''very'' wrong with this place...
