* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: One that's easy to miss. There's a storm drain outlet called "Chiang Mai Sewage Outlet". Chiang Mai is a Thai name (the name of a city in fact). May be a reference to Cheung Fai, a road that was the location of a hideout in Infernal Affairs.

The game had originally begun development as an original game called ''Black Lotus'' but was re-branded as the third game in the ''[[TrueCrimeStreetsOfLA True]]'' ''[[TrueCrimeNewYorkCity Crime]]'' series as ''True Crime: Hong Kong''. Due to the poor reception and performance of the [[TrueCrimeNewYorkCity second game]], however, as well as delays and budget overruns, Creator/{{Activision}}, the game's original publisher, canned it in 2010. Shortly after that, it was picked back up by Square Enix and renamed. Hilariously, it did very well critically when released, with the open world of Hong Kong being praised to high heaven.

* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: Wearing sets of certain types of clothing grants you various benefits like receiving more experience or dealing more combat damage. Nice suits usually grant more Cop EXP, sporty-looking outfits grant more Triad EXP, tough-guy looking outfits (leather jackets, camo pants, etc.) help you punch harder. There are other sets that allow you to receive a discount on cars and clothes or lower the attention of the cops. If you have a saved game of ''Just Cause 2'', you get Rico Rodriguez's outfit, letting you [[ShoutOut Action Hijack from greater distances]]. Additional outfits based on [[VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution Agent 47]] and [[DeusExHumanRevolution Adam Jensen]] provide similar benefits based on those respective characters.

--> It is said that if the wronged receive anything less than a proper burial, their spirit will almost certainly come back as a Hungry Ghost, damned to starve in the afterlife, feeding only on their hatred. You turn him into cat food and thatís pretty much ''guaranteed''.

** King, a music producer from Los Angeles, is representing his drug-dealing buddies from the United States who want to find "business partners" for their legal and non-legal businesses overseas and a place to crash if the FBI gets the drop on them. He is open about his interest in the East Asian sex slave trade. He's also one of the most friendly (read: doesn't try to kill/backstab you) and polite (read: treating Wei as a good buddy instead of acting smug) people you'll meet in the entire game. He even helps you fight off a bunch of thugs who jump you at one point.
