* HiddenDepths: While High Overseer Campbell seems to be a man of unrepentant vice, the regular Overseers seem to be less corrupt than the members of the City Watch and are more or less people indoctrinated into beliefs of The Abbey. Early on, you can see them being taught about The Abbey's basic principles much like a theology lesson, and while escaping from the back yard of the High Overseer's Office, you can find Overseers in the bunks trying to talk down an Overseer who has been infected with the plague and believes he needs to be put down. Surprisingly, his peers refuse to believe that this is the only solution.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Despite hearing the Heart say things like "I will be glad to rest" and "I am not alive, nor have I been granted the gift of death" for the entire game, the ending makes no mention of the Heart's final fate. Even worse considering that it's almost certainly [[spoiler:the Empress's own heart]].

** "[[TouchedByVorlons What A Weird Dream.]] [[WeirdnessCensor Oh Well, I Guess It Was Nothing.]]": [[BadassNormal The No-Magic Run]]. Unfortunately, this playthrough falls apart during the return to Dunwall tower, where you need Blink or the Agility passive to make it all the way up the water lock. This challenge is at least given a nod by the developers who made an achievement for completing the game without purchasing any magic upgrades (the first level of Blink is automatically unlocked.)

This also seems to be acknowledged in the [[VideoGame/Dishonored2 sequel]], whereby players are given the option to refuse the Outsider's mark and go without any powers whatsoever.

** This is also seen to work both ways, as Corvo is unaffected when Daud uses his own timestop powers, even if you haven't unlocked timestop yourself.

** The Timepiece used to view/traverse into to the opposite time frame during the mission to Stilton Manor seems to be a complex Steampunk-style gadget... [[WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens powered]] by a Whalebone Charm.



* WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens: Or Magitek happens. The [[TimeMachine Timepiece]] that The Outsider gives you to work your way through the reality-damaged Stilton Manor is a steampunk gadget with a spinning gimbal that houses an also-spinning Whalebone Charm, an occult Void-empowered artifact.

* HeelRealizaztion: [[spoiler: In the Low Chaos Ending, the Loyalist Conspirator ringleaders who got greedy and tried to seize power for themselves fall apart when the guilt catches up to them. You encounter Havelock who has already shot Pendleton and Martin dead, who is just simply waiting fretfully and without ill intent for Corvo to show up.]]

** The Outsider mentions at one point that humans always use their ressources until they run out and die because of it. He then observes that the current civilisation is headed the exact same way as the one he had seen before.
