The game has a small but dedicated modding community at http://oni.bungie.org/community/forum/index.php. Their main project is the Anniversary Edition mod, which fixes a lot of the game's ArtificialStupidity and adds back in DummiedOut features. [[http://mods.oni2.net/node/75 Mac]] version and [[http://mods.oni2.net/node/79 PC]] Version (requires full retail version of ''Oni'').

** Interestingly, these aren't just different skins applied to Konoko. While playing as other characters, you have access to whatever special moves they use as enemies, but not to Konoko's.

* GaiasLament: Virtually everywhere outside the cities is polluted to the point of being highly toxic to humans. One of the stated goals of Chrysalis research was to make people hardy enough to survive there. [[spoiler:Since Konoko goes to hide there for a time without protective gear and shows no signs of poisoning, apparently they succeeded in that.]]

* TheTopicOfCancer: The creepy biological macguffin, the Chrysalis, is repeatedly described as being like cancer.

** [[AllThereInTheManual The manual]] [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this, pointing out that with the [[BigBrotherIsWatching omnipresent surveillance state]] represented by the world government, a criminal organization as [[NGOSuperPower large, well-coordinated, and paramilitary]] as Syndicate ''should'' be eradicated in short order. However, it is likely that the Syndicate continues to exist because it serves the government's purpose to allow them to do so, using the fear of the disorder they represent to maintain their control, and that as long as the Syndicate continues limits itself to [[CyberPunk terrorizing the margins of society outside the sheltered safety of the highly-controlled cities]] they can bureaucratically hamstring the TCTF. A terminal late in the game posits that Griffin has become more trouble than he is worth to the world government because while his zeal carried him through the ranks quickly, the authority he now has put him in a position to persecute the Syndicate more sternly than the government finds politically expedient...

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: During the tutorial level, Konoko takes a break at one point to watch another officer engage in unarmed combat with a pair of training drones. This fight is ''not'' scripted, and it is possible for the officer to either win or lose. Either way, Shinatama tells Konoko to move on after the fight is done, but if the officer lost, she sounds a lot more embarrassed and awkward ("Oh! Um... that wasn't supposed to happen... let's just move on....")

It's widely accepted that the only thing that stopped it from becoming a classic is that the game was rushed out the door due to Microsoft's purchase of Bungie -- features initially promised that never materialized included more enemies and a multiplayer mode.
