* WhereItAllBegan: A turning point in the game, weaves the whole trilogy together; starting with the Residential level of ''Requiem'', connected to a fan-made set of rooms that link the ending corridor of ''Overture'' with the beginning of ''Black Plague'', making it clear that Philip has been GoingInCircles the whole time. You can even see ''Overture's'' ending [[CallBack eerily replay itself]] if you go far enough.

* {{Hellhound}}: The first enemy type in ''Overture''. They're rather quick, and their HP is so high some walkthroughs mistake them for {{Invincible Minor Mook}}s, but they can't jump too high, and they're [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything easily distracted with a piece of beef jerky]].
