** The level "Krist Cross" in ''Extreme RiseOfTheTriad'' makes you fight two Krists at once, although you only need to defeat one to finish the level. This applies to any other custom level with multiple bosses.

** In addition, when a boss dies, [[MadeOfExplodium he blows up]] ([[JustifiedTrope justified]] because bullet weapons and melee attacks don't do anything - you have to use missiles, magic, or some combination of the two). If you happen to die in the explosion, you get a GameOver. [[GameBreaker Even with maxed out lives]].

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.
