* LostForever: There's a secret on the 3rd floor of the New York tenement building across from a breakable floor. If you fail to make the jump and then save your game, you can never unlock that secret because collapsible walkways stay permanently collapsed.

* DeadlyRotaryFan: They often show up in the large underwater tunnels the player must swim through, though they move slow enough to at least swim through them with only minimal effort.

** Possibly the biggest offender would have to be figuring out how to get to the locations of The Five. Of the five portals to their realms, only two are open, one of which is in the middle of a three-part level that you cannot progress in without having visited the first part. You need to find three items called retractors to access the portals leading to the other three members. The first two are fairly easy to find through diligent exploration of the levels; the third is hidden in the Undercity, which is behind a Shadow Level 9 door--requiring a LOT of exploration to get 95 Dark Souls before it can be found. On the plus side, you only need the first two retractors to access all five bosses, but if you don't know this it's easy to open the wrong portals.

* BonusFeatureFailure: The ports of Shadow Man had all of their extras gutted out and replaced with concept art you could access after gaining max Shadow Power. The two highest-quality versions traded the second Violator for sharper graphics, better music and lighting, larger, more expansive areas to explore, extra dialogue and more background on The Five's prior murders in Nettie's file. A pretty fair trade, considering that unequipping the Shadowgun isn't a very good idea; it never runs out of ammo, finishing enemies with it gives you more health, and it's impossible to defeat The Five, Trueform enemies and Legion without it.

* AskAStupidQuestion: Jaunty establishes himself to be quite the smart-aleck in this early exchange:
-->'''Jaunty:''' "Ol' Bruegel, the medieval painter blokie, was just tellin' me the other day that it looked remarkably like a paintin' he once did."
-->'''Shadow Man:''' "Is that Pieter Bruegel?"
-->'''Jaunty:''' [[SarcasmMode "No, Seamus, his distant Irish cousin."]]



* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Shadowman's dialog was clearly written by someone with a word a day calendar, or else someone who actually uses "suppurating" and "unctuous" in everyday conversation.

* ShownTheirWork: London Underground, according to [[AllThereInTheManual the Acclaim strategy guide]], is Down Street, an actual closed down area, which the developers visited to get as authentic as possible. The map on the rail system is also real.

* BoringButPractical: While you get a wide variety of weapons, the Shadow Gun will get you through most of the first game. It gets a charge shot that gets stronger as you obtain dark souls, is the only weapon that is sure to work against The Five, and makes enemies drop health pickup.
