* CentipedesDilemma[=/=]HowDoIShotWeb: Go ahead and pick up the closest object to you right now. Effortless, right? Now try to do it by consciously thinking which muscle you're going move next then doing it all one at a time. Then imagine what it'd be even worse to do it without being able to feel the object you're picking up (i.e. what's touching it and what isn't) and you get why the control scheme for a hand is so difficult.

* [[ImprovisedWeapon Improvised Surgical Instrument]]: Accidentally dropped the drill? Maybe you can open his ribcage with a hammer! Lost the hammer out of the back of the ambulance? This LASER will do!
** At least in the original version, every object given to you is capable (with some effort) of breaking the ribs, and only a few are ''not'' capable of cutting out the heart. So you can complete the ''entire'' surgery with nothing but a scalpel, or a pen, or [[LetsPlay/RLYoshi a shard of broken glass]].
** You could even tear out ribs ''with your bare hands.''
** The ''Meet the Medic'' level is an even bigger offender, having replaced all of the surgical tools with the melee weapons of the different classes (where appropriate).

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: So much. The game even refers to a game over as [[LampshadeHanging "Brutal]] [[YouBastard Murder"]]. There's even an achievement for losing your patient in 15 seconds or less. Good way to do this? Take a bone saw to the guy you're doing a ''brain transplant on''.

* BizarreAlienBiology: [[spoiler:The alien surgery has a bunch of organs with nonsensical names, and each time only one out of six is the right one. Among them is a stomach ball, a glowing intestine, some kind of living creature which makes noise when you detach it, a purple lung, an orange heart-like thing that causes hallucination if you touch the spikes, and a cybernetic implant. The organ names are easter eggs, each one based on popular [=YouTubers=] who have played the game, including [[Creator/Robbaz]], LetsPlay/{{Pewdiepie}} and [[Creator/AchievementHunter Gavin Free and Michael Jones]].]]

* DrivesLikeCrazy: Whoever's driving the ambulance during the Ambulance Operations either has a serious case of reckless road rage or has to put up with horrible traffic conditions...or all of the above. It doesn't change the fact that their constant swerving and braking is going to make it that much harder to operate without killing the patient.

* BlackComedy: It starts with being able to smash the ribs of the patient you're doing a heart transplant on and goes further from there.

** The eye surgery is relatively straightforward, except for the part where you have to yank the eyes out. Even in [[BloodyHilarious this game]], stabbing pencils in the eyes is on the low priority end of potential test attempts.

** The eye surgery is relatively straightforward, except for the part where you have to yank the eyes out. Even in [[BloodyHilarious this game]], stabbing pencils in the eyes is on the low priority end of potential test attempts. Furthermore, it might not be immediately apparent that the same method can be used to put the new eyes back in.
