** There a couple references to the unusual storm system as being "the Star phenomenon", both by the scientists in "Wartime intelligence" and [[spoiler:Trinity]]. [[spoiler:The storms began when Himiko was trapped in a dead body by a priestess named Hoshi, Japanese for star.]]

* CameraScrew: The camera will shake violently during some platform set pieces, which can make determining safe paths very difficult (''especially'' during the [[ThatOneLevel rapids sequence]]). Additionally there are times when passing through waterfalls and other watery areas where it looks like water is running down the lens obscuring your view.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Downplayed. Though the good-looking Lara only suffers a few small cuts on her face, by about a third of the way through the game, the rest of her body is a different story. Her shoulders have numerous deep scratches and several cuts, along with several bad scratches on her chest that extend to the part of her left breast that isn't covered by her top(all that squeezing through tight crevices and sliding down mountains). By about two-thirds of the way through, her clothes start to wear out (one pant leg gets a large hole torn in it, and her top is torn to show her camisole bra), and she's usually got quite a bit of dirt and bloodstains on her. Strangely, wading across streams, running in the rain or even standing under waterfalls doesn't clean her up in the slightest (At least when she's just wandering around. Falling into the river during a scene that advances the plot will clean Lara up for a little while). Played straight with Sam, who hardly gets a scratch on her.

[[spoiler:Then again, it may be justified: Sam is the intended sacrifice for Himiko, so the Solarii would have kept her as healthy and pretty as possible.]]

** Early in the game, after being told about how powerful Himiko was, Lara says: "A woman wields that much power and sooner or later it gets called witchcraft." Cynical, yes. Accurate throughout history, yes. Does that mean Himiko was just a powerful female ruler and shaman and not actually a witch? '''[[spoiler: [[WickedWitch NOPE.]]]]'''

* ShowDontTell: Probably no-one cared about this rule when [[spoiler: Alex's affection for Lara was explicitly stated. All we know about his feelings toward Lara comes from a single note found around 3[=/=]4 of whole game]]. ''Nothing'' besides that note was indicating anything to that point, making the whole deal very artificial, [[spoiler: which may of course have been the point as the note and Lara's comment on it speculate that Lara didn't even notice his interest. Well... she didn't and thus, [[PaintingTheMedium neither did the player]]]].

** Also of note: when Lara examines an animal she's hunted, she'll plunge a couple arrows into the carcass. Doing so will cause red blots to appear on the camera lens every time it happens... even if it's just a [[LudicrousGibs small bird]].
