* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Captain Cross, who [[spoiler:actually ''notices'' Alex's one moment of weakness (that being when Alex is hit by flashbacks). And not only does he notice Alex's weakness, ''he uses it against him'' to infect Alex with a parasite that strips him of his ability to shapeshift his body into a weapon or shield]].

* AwesomeButImpractical: Several of Alex's higher-end moves.
** The king is the Bullet Drop. It's the most expensive move in the game, and the most useless except when you're having fun. It consists of (preferably) going as high as possible, gliding over the target, then dropping like a bunker buster missile. It releases a giant shockwave and will kill damn near anything save bosses. Stack Musclemass on top of that and you get a truly devastating combo. It is easily Alex's single most powerful move. However, it has several drawbacks. First, it takes a lot of time to set up. Second, you have to eyeball your target to get a good hit, though the power of this move is such that even a minor miss will kill the target. Third, because of the setup time, the only things this move will ever reliably hit are tanks, buildings, and one boss. The cost is also so prohibitively large that you can't even manage to pay for it without grinding.
** The Groundspike special attack of the Claw power. It's fairly powerful and has near-perfect accuracy. However, it has a very limited range (around the length of four cars) and a huge cool-down time. At maximum distance, it takes about a couple seconds for the attack to hit, and slightly shorter for Alex to retract the spikes, during which he is completely immobilized. Expect your enemies to capitalize on this. The net result is that using this attack will likely be more damaging to you than to your enemies -- much more than if you'd just used conventional attacks. Also, by the time you've unlocked enough upgrades to give it a good area effect and power, you won't find yourself using Claws at all.

* XMeetsY: NighInvulnerable, inhuman monstrosity able to manifest CombatTentacles, horrific claws and related BodyHorror? Check. Subsisting on a steady diet of human biomass? Check. Able to [[{{ShapeShifter}} assume the form of anything it devours?]] Check. Actually being [[spoiler: a colony of a super-virus, i.e. an entity composed of countless separate -and possibly autonomous- organisms]]? Check. This is basically HPLovecraft meets ''Film/TheThing1982'': The Game. And you get to play as the abomination.

** In [[GeneralRipper General Randall's]] case, never, ever, call Alex Mercer 'he.' Also, don't question his orders. [[KnightsTemplar Blackwatch]] in general seems to hold everyone in contempt, and takes even minor infractions or vague evidence of infection as justification for brutal execution.

* HumanoidAbomination: A better description for Mercer as compared to EldritchAbomination, seeing that he's [[spoiler:a sentient mass of virus and cells twisted into human form.]]

* MoralityPet: [[spoiler:Dana Mercer]] is pretty much the ''only'' thing that Alex cares about. [[spoiler:As it turns out, ZEUS cares about her more than the actual Mercer ever did.]]

** SpiderManWebOfShadows , anyone? Both games are by Activision, both start with ATasteOfPower shortly before the plot ends, both have a ZombieApocalypse going on in NY, in both cases it is the fault of the protagonist to a certain degree, in both cases the protagonist gains dark/evil powers. Even the attacks are very similar, with combat tentacles, body surf attack etc.
