* BanditMook: The Low Guards can snatch away your missile weapons with a terse "Gimme that!" if you get too close, which is a whole lot worse than the usual item-stealing baddies, because they'll immediately start [[HoistByTheirOwnPetard using it against you]].

* ISurrenderSuckers: If you damage some mooks (namely, Low Guards and the MP-40 wielding goons), they'll drop to their knees and start begging for you not to shoot him (despite the gore, ''this'' is what really got the game a higher RSAC rating for violence than ''{{VideoGame/Doom}}''). It's a trick, though; if you choose not to kill him, he'll play possum for a little while, and then get back up and keep attacking you.

* ISurrenderSuckers: If you damage some mooks (namely, Low Lightning Guards and the MP-40 wielding goons), enough, they'll sometimes drop to their knees and start begging for you not to shoot him them (despite the gore, ''this'' is what really got the game a higher RSAC rating for violence than ''{{VideoGame/Doom}}''). It's a trick, though; if you choose not to kill him, one, he'll play possum for a little while, and then get back up and keep attacking you.

* DevelopmentGag: Several:
** God Mode's noises were inspired by JohnRomero making what he considered "God-Like Sounds" whenever he played ''RiseOfTheTriad'' in God Mode.
** Apogee president Scott Miller's head appears in a secret area in episode 2, level 3. If you collect it, you get 2,764,331 points, a reference to Apogee's order number at the time. It shows up again in the remake's version of the same level, at the end of a NintendoHard hidden obstacle course.
** The three DIP balls found throughout the game reference the dev team, nicknamed the "Developers of Incredible Power".
** The character Doug Wendt is named after one of the developers' dogs.
** The names of three protagonists come directly from the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Bible]]''

** In the original, after the credits roll, [[spoiler: you see the HUNT portrait with the text "The HUNT is victorious. The End", but if you wait long enough, they all get [[HolidayMode various holiday-themed items]] at the same time and the text changes to "Now go and celebrate! The Real End"]]

* CameraScrew: Shrooms Mode makes your view move up, down, left, and right all the time. This is done [[JustifiedTrope on purpose]].


Added DiffLines:

* InterfaceScrew: Several:
** If you get trapped by an Overpatrol, your view is partially blocked by a net and you can't do anything before you get out. That can be done by either rapidly hitting the left and right arrow keys several times or using a knife if you have one.
** The Elasto Mode makes you move even when you don't press any keys and bounce off walls and objects.
** The Shrooms Mode makes your view move up, down and sides, and you see all the enemies, traps, and movable columns as one-coloured with the colour blinking and changing all the time.
