** One particular instance is in the Chicago level, where a police robot patrolling the streets is made completely immune to ''all'' weapons and explosives, so that it can only be destroyed by reprogramming a taxi to crash into it for one of your objectives. This is made particularly {{egregious}} by the fact that robots of the ''exact same model'' turn up in a later level, but can be gunned down with just a few rounds from your gun.

* InstantSedation: With tranquilizers, it only takes a few hits to become completely disoriented. This is particularly {{egregious}} in the cutscene where Elvis is hit by ''one'' dart and keels over unconscious.

Added DiffLines:

* CantKillYouStillNeedYou:
** The first mission requires you to break into Cassandra's office to knock her out and steal her necklace. What's stopping you from [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim just blowing her brains out]] so that she can't cause any further trouble for the Carrington Institute? Her necklace has a code key to access the basement laboratories, and it will only operate while she's still alive.
** On Perfect Agent in "Carrington Villa: Hostage One", one of your objectives is to knock at least one guard unconscious instead of killing him so that he can be captured/interrogated later.

* 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 could've easily been edited out without muting the whole thing.

* AmazonBrigade: Zhang Li's last line of defense is a platoon of about 20 elite female troopers armed with cloaking devices and plasma rifles. They're super annoying, since getting killed by them kicks you all the way back to about halfway through the level.

* AnnoyingArrows: Enemies will keep fighting even if they've been turned into a pincushion by crossbow bolts or thrown knives...but since the former are laced with a tranquilizer and the latter are poisoned, they won't be fighting for long.

* DistractedByTheSexy: Mentioned by [[EnemyChatter a guard]] in the intro to an early mission:
-->"... [[{{Stripperific}} it's like she had nothing on!]] Mai Hem's giving orders, but [[MaleGaze I don't know where to look!]]"

''Perfect Dark'' is a trilogy of video games produced by {{Rare}}, the creators of ''Franchise/DonkeyKongCountry'', ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct'', and so on. The series began in 2000 with ''Perfect Dark'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}}, a SpiritualSuccessor to Rare's previous FPS classic VideoGame/{{GoldenEye|1997}}, with which it shared a (modified) engine. Joanna Dark, having recently graduated the Carrington Institute's training program with the first ever "Perfect" score, is sent to meet an insider from the [[MegaCorp dataDyne corporation]]. The events that unfold quickly reveal a plot against the US President involving [=dataDyne=], the NSA, and a mysterious third faction. Things rapidly become more complicated and she soon finds herself in the middle of [[SpaceColdWar a war between two alien races who have allied themselves with different factions on Earth.]]

* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: In the game, the NSA is practically Trent Easton's private army and joins the [=dataDyne=] corporation and the Skedar in an attempt to lead a coup against the President. In RealLife, the {{NSA}} is the United States government's [[BigBrotherIsWatching signals intelligence]] branch and deals with cryptography and other fairly boring stuff like that.
