** During a "Drown Out" video, [[WebVideo/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee Croshaw]] showed a lot of glee sending people to be detained.
--->'''Croshaw:''' ''(to one entrant smuggling drugs)'' Oh, ''really''? Let me introduce you to these nice men with ''guns''! They'll take you to the place where a lot of people go in but don't seem to come out of so much!

* ThreatBackfire: When you have the option to detain someone, sometimes they'll tell you to let them through "or you'll regret it". Unfortunately, ''they'll'' [[{{Irony}} regret it]] if Calensk and another armed guard come to take them away.

* HeroicSacrifice: An EZIC messenger will task you with killing a man in red (clearly visible in the queue), promising that your sacrifice ensures that Arstotzka will be saved, and your family will be protected. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, this leads to a DownerEnding, in which while they were able to relocate your family to a safer nation, they're unable to operate in Arstotzka, dooming them to hibernate. Whether or not you wanted to help them, this makes the sacrifice [[SenselessSacrifice pointless...]]]]

** Could actually be an unintentional GeniusBonus, as the game takes place during the eighties, which was when [[spoiler:Gorbachev in our timeline allowed for numerous reforms that liberalized the communist states. If the press is making open criticism of the state, its days [[HoleInFlag are limited and could fall as in our timeline]].]]

** Jorji's crudely drawn passport is in crayon. Later, it's revealed that crayons are a luxury (25 credits!), so there's more to Jorji than it seems.

* NintendoHard: "Time IS Money" and you need to process more than 15 entrants to stay afloat. Because of this, your precarious financial situation at the start of the game will only get more precarious without sharp eyes and a fast hand which means you probably won't get far before you go bankrupt. This is not helped at all by an increasing number of rules and occasional terror attacks which cut the day short, resulting in a reduced pay. Oh, did we mention that the daily rent gets more expensive?

** Your boss Dmitri will call you out if you [[spoiler: deny his girlfriend entry but don't detain her]], but his jerkassery lessens the impact somewhat.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Arstotzka is a transphobic regime; claiming to be one gender while being of the opposite sex can get you detained.
