**This is a subversion: When Maya and Mariko died in the accident, they were listed as organ donors. [[spoiler: Melissa received a liver transplant from Maya and was on immunosupressants because the doctors though her illness was rejection syndrome, not parasitic infection. Aya's awakened mitochondria also came from her sister: a corneal transplant. Mysticism related to this is why she sees her sister at random moments through the game.]]

* TearsOfBlood: The Statue of Liberty looks like it's crying blood, just before [[spoiler: the reconstituted and nuked cells of the Central Park patrons knock it over]].

* TearsOfBlood: The Statue of Liberty looks like it's crying blood, just before [[spoiler: the reconstituted and nuked cells of the Central Park patrons knock it over]]. It looks like it's ready to do so in the intro. Combined with the chilling ''Primal Eyes'' playing in the back, it can be rather creepy.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The final boss manages to avert BarbieDollAnatomy by having its phallus and scrotum resemble a tail.

In 1998, [[SquareEnix Squaresoft]] released a video game called ''Parasite Eve'', a sequel to [[Literature/ParasiteEve the 1995 novel of the same name]]. It was unique among [[RolePlayingGame RPGs]] available at the time because of its blend of RPG, ActionAdventure and the then still new genre SurvivalHorror.

* BagOfSpilling: An interesting inversion between the first and second games. Aya starts PEII with all her awesome mitochondrial powers from the first game gone; however, she has a couple of cool new ones, and can gain several more of pretty devastating power.
** This is Justified [[spoiler:if you complete the Chrysler building, as at the end after dealing with [[OneWingedAngel Truebred Eve,]] with the help of [[DeadLittleSister Maya,]] Eve's mitochondria are purged at the expense of all of Aya's Parasite Energy powers. According to the game developers, this is the canon ending.]]

power.



* ItsUpToYou: Justified. As Aya is the only person unaffected by Eve's aura (which causes everybody else to burst into flame), the military gives her the task of [[spoiler:[[NukeEm personally delivering a tactical nuclear warhead]] to Liberty Island, where Eve is giving birth]]. This doesn't stop them from sending a [[RedShirtArmy squadron of helicopter gunships]] to [[TakingTheBullet Take The Bullet]] from the random combustions that await as Aya closes the gap toward her destination, though.

* MilitariesAreUseless: Averted: after the Central Park crowd is melted down into genetic sludge, it becomes clear that Eve is a PersonOfMassDestruction and the U.S. Navy blockades off New York City from the outside world. They launch an airstrike to try to kill Eve, which only fails due to Eve melting the pilots. When the genetic sludge becomes a giant monstrosity that takes over Ellis Island, the Navy receives authorization from the White House to use a tactical nuclear warhead on Eve, and they immediately put together an operation to recover Aya and send her to launch the missile as she's the only one who's immune to Eve's immolation abilities.



* PoliceAreUseless: Averted. A single rookie cop and some scattered, frightened civilians say they saw a woman turn into a monster and light everyone on fire, and all the cop's co-workers start searching Manhattan for the monster. The same rookie cop says she saw the monster turn another group of people into a pile of orange goo, and Manhattan is immediately evacuated.



** Subverted with an item actually called "junk." It does nothing but take up space while you have it, but collecting enough junk is the way to get one of the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity+1 guns]].

* WithThisHerring: Averted: at the beginning of the game, Aya's on a date at the opera and has her badge and gun, which as an NYPD officer she would be required to carry even when off-duty. The next day, when Captain Baker assigns her to the case, the first thing he does is to give her a permit that authorizes her to take an M16 rifle out of the police armory which is in the words of the armorer, "the most powerful gun I can allow you to have."

* DisappointingLastLevel: Day 6 starts with a multi-stage boss, which, while impressive, is no match for the SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity that immediately precedes it. Defeating it leads to a chase through the maze-like interior of a ship which, while certainly tense, requires no wrong moves whatsoever through the unmarked tunnels, with the slightest mistake or deviation being punished with a OneHitKO. And [[spoiler: failing to realize one has to activate the boiler along the way]] just makes the chase {{Unwinnable}}. Also, you'll have to re-fight the final boss and sit through unskippable cutscenes and dialogue first each time you try.

* ByTheBookCop: Given the trifecta of being a survival horror game, set in New York City, and with most of the characters as police officers, it's a little shocking that ''none'' of them are cowardly, corrupt, or incompetent.
