* DifficultButAwesome: The axe takes longer to swing than the shiv and leaves you vulnerable to being hit before you can follow through, but with careful timing it lets you stun-juggle nearly any enemy in the game with no fear of retaliation.

* HappyEndingOverride: ''Ties That Bind'' does this to the first game if you got the good karma ending. So you conquered your demons, learned you were innocent, and escaped Carnate? Whoops, you just got captured, the creatures are now in Baltimore and your innocence, not to mention sanity, is once again in question.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Hermes is basically one giant reference to the Holocaust. A sadist prison guard who enjoyed killing people while justifying it that he was just following orders and who loved using gas more than anything. Hell, his boss fight ends when you ''put him in an oven''.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In the first game's prologue "Waiting To Die", a couple of inmates recognize Torque and remember that he's in prison for killing his wife and kids. This disgusts them so much they try to shank Torque, which results in Torque going berserk and killing them. Then there's the death row inmates, who all show distinct hatred for the child rapist.


Added DiffLines:

* TheGhost: Ranse Truman and Consuela in the first game. They both make physical appearances in ''Ties That Bind''.


Added DiffLines:

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: It's not quite clear whether or not Torque actually transforms into a creature while in berserk mode. Dr. Killjoy's analysis in the first game says that he doesn't, it's merely a combination of Torque's rage and imagination. However, NPC comments in both games imply that Torque really does transform into ''something''.

Added DiffLines:

* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:It's implied that Dr. Killjoy is in someway related to Torque, as he mentions knowing Torque's mother. There's also a painting of Killjoy in the Asylum where Killjoy is the spitting image of Torque.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousSituation: Torque's situation in the good karma ending of ''Ties That Bind'' is very...odd. [[spoiler:Carmen remarks that she wants her and Torque to never be apart again, then they hug. Given that Carmen ''is dead'' and that Torque just killed his alternate personality, it's entirely possible he actually killed himself in the final boss fight.]]


Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: Berserk mode in the first game, especially if you're going for a good karma run. Its attacks are very powerful, but you cannot heal during it, it counts as an evil action, and [=NPC=]s you have to escort tend to get caught up in its attacks. ''Ties That Bind'' altered this so berserk no longer counts as an evil action and is actually changed/upgraded by your karma level, but [=NPC=]s remain just as dumb so it must be used very carefully.
