* BottomlessMagazines: Averted throughout the game, even with the default bow-and-arrow weapon, although played straight with rope arrows -- a loading screen even specifically touches on the fact that they need no arrow ammo. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything A nice touch is also thrown in where the player will be used to firing arrow after arrow, only for Lara to reach for one in the quiver and find nothing there, with a look of shock on her face.]]

* CampingACrapper: At several points during the game, Lara will sneak up on a group of mooks. If you wait before taking them down one might wander off alone into the bushes or other private corners to relieve himself, allowing Lara to take him down while he's taking a leak. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything There's even a visible urine stream.]]

* XMeetsY: Described as ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' meets ''VideoGame/FarCry3''. The original game was ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' meets Franchise/IndianaJones. Then ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' reinvented itself with extra parkour and a healthy bit of ''Tomb Raider'''s platforming. ''Uncharted'' pops up a few years later, takes ''that'', and adds in [[VideoGame/GearsOfWar cover shooting]] and the [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 readying your gun to fire in third-person perspective]]. Now we've got 2013 ''Tomb Raider'', which is an adequate summary of how the genre has evolved in the last seventeen years.

* IWillShowYouX: During the boss fight against [[GiantMook Boris]], after repeatedly calling Lara "a little rat", she responds with "I'll show you what this little rat can do!"

* CrazyEnoughToWork: The plan to leave the island by [[spoiler:destroying Himiko's corpse]]. Reyes doesn't like it, but she concedes that they'd run out of sane plans by that point.

** The WW2 Submachinegun is a Type-100 Submachine Gun. The upgrade assault rifle is a kitbashed AK-47. Fully upgraded, it ends up as the mutant Ultimax 100 machine gun.

** Several other minor characters also leave writings, including a Japanese soldier whose unit was sent to garrison the island during WorldWarII, ([[spoiler: and were subsequently slaughtered by the Stormguard]]) [[ThoseWackyNazis German scientists]] sent to the island during the war to research the weather phenomenon and determine if there is a military application for it, and [[spoiler: A cryptic message from an unnamed agent of an organization called "Trinity" that ran afoul of Mathias and his cult while attempting to stop the Solarii]].

* ThoseWackyNazis: Communications dating to WorldWarII Lara discovers on the island indicates that the Germans sent scientists to the island to study the weather phenomenon in the event that it might be something of use to the war effort. Partly TruthInTelevision: There was a technological interchange between UsefulNotes/NaziGermany and UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan during the War, but nothing significant.

** Looking closely when Lara enters the first camp (Sheltered Ridge) even reveals that she's shivering, and her breathing is shaking through visibly chattering teeth.

** 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]].

* NoWomansLand: The Solarii cult only accepts males in their ranks. Any woman unfortunate enough to be stranded in Yamatai ends up in a sacrificial pyre.
