* ContinuingIsPainful: Upon dying, not only does your new character have to track down his/her items, but that new character will have ''none'' of the improved skills that the old one had and will have to be trained up again. It's even possible to wake up with a new character ''[[NoobCave right when the zombies decide to attack the safehouse]]''! Your only saving grace in this case is that the Prepper drops off the basic supply kit with the Cricket Bat. Get swinging...
** In fact the only thing that ''does'' actually carry over (and is thus auto-saved) between characters is the mission and storyline progress since, well, [[FridgeBrilliance the last guy/girl already did things already before dying/zombifying]].

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicMime: The player never talks. The closest you'll get to "dialog" from him[=/=]her is grunting (whenever you hit a zombie with your melee weapon or step on their heads) and heavy breathing.

* BoomHeadshot: Headshots are ''always'' guaranteed to instantly kill a zombie... At least on Chicken mode. In normal mode, it usually requires two shots to the head to down a zombie.

* GetOut: [[spoiler:The Prepper doesn't take the player trying to escape at the end with the Ravens Of Dee and the panacea very well]].
-->[[spoiler:'''The Prepper:''' Oh. I see how it is! You’re all bloody plotting and conspiring behind my back! The Doctor, the Ravens… You know what, fine! Try to save yourself! Die in the fire, for all I care! You’re no survivor, like me! None of you are! You’re nothing to me! Go on, go! Get out! You people are no better than the plague! I gave you shelter, weapons, equipment… I taught you how to survive! You’d be dead without me! And this is how you repay me? You needed me! Oh, you’re all grown up now, strutting off on wild goose chases all by yourself, sticking your neck out…but just remember where I found you! I should have let the Safe House burn, just like the whole of London will! Just like John Dee foretold! No bloody gratitude, that’s the problem with people like you! You just take, take, take, like a selfish child! It’s no wonder the country’s gone to the dogs, is it? Well don’t you worry, because I’ll have the last laugh! I will outlive you all! I thought we were partners! I trusted you, gave you skills and knowledge! [[PrecisionFStrike I should fucking kill you myself!]] '''GET THE HELL OUT OF MY SAFEHOUSE'''!]]

'''''[=ZombiU=]''''' is a SurvivalHorror game with FirstPersonShooter elements developed by Creator/{{Ubisoft}} exclusively for the UsefulNotes/WiiU, in late 2012. You play as a human trying to survive a ZombieApocalypse in London, but with one big twist... [[FinalDeath when you die, you stay dead]], and restart the game as a different survivor. The story is told through interaction with the handful of {{NPC}}s scattered throughout the game; mainly the mysterious man who guides you through the city and seems to know more about the events surrounding the zombie outbreak than he lets on.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: At one point, the Prepper mentions how Dee predicted that only "black angels" would be able to end the plague; Sondra believed that it meant the Ravens of Dee, while the Prepper belives [[TheGrimReaper something more sinister]]; it's never brought up again. [[spoiler: Until the final cutscene shows RAF bombers silhouetted in black against the red sky, on their way to destroy London.]]

* [[OvershadowedByAwesome Overshadowed by Practical]]: The Silenced Pistol doesn't get much use, because the default Pistol cannot be removed, so using the Silenced Pistol just occupies one more spot in your inventory. It does come fully loaded when you first come across it though, so there's fifteen bullets to use for Pistol skills.

* ButThouMust: [[spoiler: Even with foresight when it comes to The Arena, a trap, you still need to "Save the Girl" to advance the plotline and have Dr. Knight develop the Panacea]]. [[TropesAreNotBad Think of it this way]]: [[spoiler: Your mission turns into "Confront King Boris and put an end to his mad games. At least then, you'll stop him from kidnapping any future survivors!]]
