* {{Telekinesis}}: via AppliedPhlebotinum. It basically gives you ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'''s Gravity Gun, up to and including the use of nearby objects as improvised projectiles. It also provides a very useful workaround for the scarcity of ammo: once you've shot the arms off one Necromorph, you can use those arms to stake the next two you come across! Also, Necromorphs playing possum aren't affected by telekinesis, but dead ones are. It takes the trial and error out of the equation.

* AlmightyJanitor: Isaac rips through hordes of mutated walking corpses, fends off an AsteroidThicket, destroys three giant... [[EldrtichAbomination things]] [[spoiler: (one of which is apparently the source of ALL the others)]], the list goes on. And this guy isn't even a soldier, just a (badass) engineer!

** Not to mention that, as [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] noted, the story is more or less ''Film/EventHorizon'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Film/{{Aliens}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* HandCannon: Upgrade your Plasma Cutter enough and it can kill standard enemies in 2-4 well placed shots. The best part is that it doesn't have to be hampered by the slow rate of fire and low capacity of typical hand cannons depending on how you choose to upgrade it.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackAndGreyMorality: The necromorphs are ChaoticEvil to the core, seeking only death and destruction. The Red Marker is ''very'' manipulative and can drive people insane, but it's trying to stop the necromorph outbreak.

Added DiffLines:

* WellIntentionedExtremist: The Red Marker manipulates people by creating illusions of someone that the victim cares about, [[spoiler:such as Nicole]], but in the end, all it wants is to be placed back on its pedestal so that it can stop the Necromorph outbreak, and every illusion keeps urging the victim to help accomplish that.

* BoomHeadshot[=/=]RemovingTheHeadOrDestroyingTheBrain: ZigZagged. Shooting a Necromorph's head will kill it... if you've blown off at least one of its other limbs (or two, depending on what you're shooting). Shooting one in the head from the get-go, however, will only make it go berserk.
** However, after the head is removed, if you throw it or shoot it, it pops like a melon filled with firecrackers.
* BoringButPractical: The Plasma Cutter and the Line Gun are all the player needs to utterly dominate the game on any difficulty setting. The Plasma Cutter is the first weapon as well as the only free one, but both appear early on and can perform the job of any of the more AwesomeButImpractical weapons faster, more cheaply, and without encumbering Isaac. There's even an achievement for completing the game using only the Plasma Cutter.

There's even an achievement for completing the game using only the Plasma Cutter. The Plasma Gun's only failing is that it is impractical in killing Swarmers, a situation rare enough (assuming you aren't popping Pregnants each time they show up) that the ammo you waste doing it is easily earned back.
