** In the first bonus level, Mr. Blonde does an Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger impression. The level's music even [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong sounds kind of like]] the theme from 'TheTerminator''.

** The Alaska mission, where Air Force One is hijacked, the President gets away in an escape pod and Joanna has to find him using his medical scanner, is very similar to the plot of ''EscapeFromNewYork''.

** The N-Bomb (Neutron Bomb) is a hundred times worse. It is a special grenade that explodes with a very persistent, light-absorbing sphere of energy that can completely mess up your vision and kill you (albeit very, ''[[DeathOfAThousandCuts very]]'' slowly). It is also the only weapon in the game that bypasses shields.

The first game was Nintendo and Rare's attempt at a [[DarkerandEdgier darker and more mature]] game, being the first M-rated game ever to be published by Nintendo. This shocked a lot of parents and fans at the time in the fact that Nintendo gave the green light for a game geared towards older teenagers and adults when they were known at the time for their family friendly and fanstay-oriented games.

The eagerly anticipated sequel was chronically delayed (originally a [=GameCube=] title, it shifted to the original [=XBox=] after Microsoft's buyout of Rare and then ended up as a launch title on the 360 in 2005) and eventually became a {{prequel}}. ''Perfect Dark Zero'', set 3 years before the original, has Joanna working as a bounty hunter with her dad before getting mixed up with the Carrington Institute. Reviews were good but it was generally seen as not up to the standard set by the previous game. In March of 2010, the original game was [[UpdatedRerelease rereleased]] for UsefulNotes/XboxLiveArcade, with new features such as updated graphics with 1080p resolution and eight-player online multiplayer. Both games were later rereleased again for UsefulNotes/XboxOne on 4 August 2015 as part of the ''Rare Replay'' collection.

** Though it's not completely docile considering the first sight you see when you enter the ship is a Skedar corpse as well as the mutually hostile ship defense turrets.

Added DiffLines:

* CutAndPasteTranslation: If you turn on the language filter in the N64 game, all lines of dialogue that contain profanity or religious euphemisms ([[BleepDamnit anywhere from "Oh my God!"]] [[UpToEleven to a simple "Jeez!"]]) will be removed from the game. This also extends to cutscenes, where it's ever more absurd; not only will the sentence containing the obscenity be muted, but the ''entire'' line of dialogue as well. This leads to at least two instances of characters making a pithy remark in response to something the other character says, except ''[[OrphanedPunchline we don't get to hear what the other character said]]'', just because there was a small sentence in that line of dialogue that ''happened'' to contain a swear word that [[TheyJustDidntCare could've easily been edited out without muting the whole thing]].
