* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: The cannibal you eventually encounter in "American Appetites", who, despite having a ''broken leg'', still proceeds to eat one of his victims unless you shoot him. It's either that or he's a seriously creepy version of TheDeterminator.

** Then again this is averted seeing as it's basically [[spoiler:Edgar Ross']] fault that John has to kill all the people he does throughout the course of the game.

** Then again this is averted seeing as it's basically [[spoiler:Edgar Ross']] fault that John has to kill all the people he does throughout the course of the game. Also, had John not interfered, they would have killed an innocent woman and her son in cold blood.



** [[spoiler:When you play as Jack in the epilogue, tracking down Edgar Ross, you can choose to kill his wife and brother too should you feel really resentful. Though it could be argued that letting them live and just killing Edgar is also a form of CruelMercy, since they'll have to spend their twilight years knowing that they led Edgar's killer straight to him.]]

Interestingly, killing them each nets a -50 Honor, while killing Ross nets a +100 Honor, so even a hero won't suffer any real honor loss for doing it.]]

** In the second part, John must visit the Mother Superior, who is begging for alms outside Las Hermanas. He can either donate a small sum to her, causing her fellow nuns to randomly visit John and beg as well, or take money from her collection box.

* TutorialFailure: While they're not really all that ''bad'', some of the tutorials feel like they were introduced too late into the game. Poker and dueling are only tutorialized during a story mission after you unlock Mexico despite the fact that you've likely participated in both quite a few times if you've done any exploration or side missions. Dueling is especially noteworthy since its story tutorial is only introduced after the third and final level of Dead Eye is acquired and due to the fact that there are many more opportunities for duels than poker games. Also, a late game mission in which you're possibly attacked by a cougar also feels inexplicably late, as you've likely run into (and potentially been killed by) some cougars before then if you've done some hunting. This all is mitigated by the fact that textual tutorials can pop up while participating in those activities outside of the story, but then it's easy for that to slide into StopHelpingMe territory as they also never really go away for good (with the tutorial prompt for cheating at Poker being a notable example).

** Nigel West Dickens makes a similar point to [[spoiler:Ross]]; every time John complains about his SnakeOilSalesman ways, Nigel points out that John, who used to ''rob people at gunpoint'', can't take the moral high ground.

* WhatYouAreInTheDark: The "I Know You" stranger mission is a series of tests following this trope, set up for John by the Strange Man. John is presented with a situation that he can resolve in either an [[KarmaMeter honorable or dishonorable manner]], and the Strange Man leaves him to choose with no judgment or prejudice.
** In the first part, John has to go to a man in [[WretchedHive Thieves' Landing]] who is thinking of [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on his wife]] with a prostitute. He can either dissuade the man from going through with it, or give the man money to pay the prostitute.
** In the second part, John must visit the Mother Superior, who is begging for alms outside Las Hermanas. He can either donate a small sum to her, causing her fellow nuns to randomly visit John and beg as well, or take money from her collection box.

** Special mention goes to the Mauser Pistol for being the only weapon the inventory with a fully-automatic fire rate.
