Added DiffLines:

* HeavilyArmoredMook: Has one of the earliest FPS examples, in the form of a rotund soldier armed with a heavy machine gun who can soak several dozen bullets before dropping. In the remake he was turned into a single character, a MiniBoss named Big John.

* AnimalImmunity:
** The player is invulnerable in Dog Mode (except in the original game when falling off the map).
** In the remake, there's a room with dogs in cages. If you shoot them, they don't get hurt and a message "WTF! Don't shoot the dogs." is shown.

* 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]]''
