** If you allow [[ProfessionalKiller ZeroPresence]] to aid you when you first raid the [=PDX=] [=HQ=] on a [=WorldCorp=] playthrough, he will call out "Boom Headshot!" when killing a guard, although the episode of PurePwnage where it was from wouldn't be released until December of that year.

* UncannyValley: [[invoked]] Shadowcode has a pretty realistic face. The (admitted to be deliberate by the devs on IRC) This is creepy in a game where the graphics are intentionally designed to look like they are from 2000.

* NoFourthWall: The Narcissus Entity only actually addresses Trestkon in a single line, where he asks Trestkon his thoughts on the player's actions, and a single endgame conversation; every other time, he addresses the player. He exists as a tool to [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] sequence breaking, replacing messages that depend on the support of a faction when neither can be used. For example, entering one area ([[spoiler:Despot's Apartment]]) the password to which ([[spoiler:Despot / GS_Rulez]]) has not been given yet will result in Narcissus asking Trestkon what he thinks of the fact that he was "able to recall information that was never inserted into this branch of reality". In its own words, "Your puppeteer makes its presence apparent".

** A notepad late in the game has a list of some Deus Ex tropes, despite TVTropes barely existing back then.

** In a straighter example, the player character is Trestkon, the project lead.
*** Though this is more of a benevolent case of an EnforcedTrope, as the Lawrence "Trestkon" Laxdal didn't actually want to have himself represented as the main character, but the rest of the team convinced him.
** Then we have the Narcissus Entity, pretty much the embodiment of this trope for the entire dev team.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper:[[invoked]] You can ask an NPC called Beeblequix to help you open a few doors in one area, but his primary function is to distract you with his inane comments about his favourite soaps, dead rat anecdotes and even some music while you are attempting tricky platforming sections. You are unable to quicksave during his remarks. This is deliberate and lampshaded when he points out it was SO ANNOYING when this sort of thing happened in Deus Ex.
** Thankfully you can turn down his help, and have the option to murder him [[AndYourLittleDogToo (and his cat)]] if he pushes you over the edge.

* DevelopersForesight: If you climb over a gate [[SequenceBreaking before you get the code]], an NPC will ask how you did it and list a few methods. Naturally, the developers are fully aware of the ability to "grenade climb" and other oddities in the Deus Ex engine. They have been working on a 9-year-old game for over 7 years.



* GoodBadBugs: [[invoked]] (The real) Jonas has mentioned that an unimportant NPC sometimes accidentally provoked a particular robot into killing her while the player was in a conversation about whether or not that robot is able to kill at random. This "bug" was found too funny to remove.
** [[invoked]] Also before patch 1.0.1 Kashue will call Trestkon a "sick bastard" and attempt to kill Trestkon himself (as a moderator, he is immortal) if you kill anything in PDX... including fish or rats. This gets joked about in the patch notes.
