* DiabolusExNihilo[=/=]OutsideContextVillain: Only two of the Parasites, [[spoiler: Doctor X and the Eye of Adam]], are introduced to players in some way and given any build-up. The other three just sort of pop out unexpectedly, which is admittedly part of their scary factor. [[spoiler: The most egregious example of this, however, is the fourth Parasite. Not only does he lack a name or personality, he doesn't even speak like a proper human being. It is subtly implied that he is what's become of Susan's stalker, but this is never elaborated on or confirmed]].
