** In several of the games, the right combination of weapons and disguises is pretty hysterical. Busboy armed with a [[KatanasAreJustBetter katana]]? Pizza delivery man with an [[MoreDakka M60]]? [[MonsterClown An all-too-serious clown]] [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter with an automatic shotgun]]? Why the hell not? Or, going in the reverse, you can be an FBI Agent armed with his trusty [[JokeWeapon Red Ryder BB gun]][[note]] [[AChristmasStory You can't shoot your eye out if you are wearing]] CoolShades! Everyone else is fair game, though.[[/note]].

** Subverted hard in ''Hitman: Absolution''. The biometric scanners you run into are state-of-the-art. Not only will using a dead enemy not work, but forcing a hostage's head into the scanner will ALSO fail, since the device can detect (presumably via pupil dilation and rapid eye movement) that they are under duress. The only way to trick a scanner is to either use disguises to trick an authorized person into opening it for you... or just walk up to a console and register yourself as authorized. Don't ask how you hacked the computer though; maybe the password was on a sticky-note attached to the monitor.

** It's been said that Hitman 2016 is a reboot/sequel/prequel. It's a sequel, but takes place before ''Absolution'' in a "disconnected plot line" which, since it's in the past, is a prequel ''and'' a reboot because they overhauled most of the game. It's ''Blood Money 2'', essentially. (Reminds one of ''[[VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel Borderlands]]'' but even more screwed up, since in ''Borderlands'' it was nicely explained--kind of.)

** ''Hitman 2: Silent Assassin'', which, being a Stealth-Based Game, ought to be generally good in this respect, is the worst of the lot. The game has what can only be described as highly jittery bunch of guards, often resorting to gunfire at the slightest infraction or social gaffe.
*** Take the snow pass level: the developers apparently forgot that a blizzard, at night ought to have some effect on the ninjas' ability to spot you; they're also preset to realize that your outfit is stolen and open fire after a five-second wait animation - even if you walk away and are well out of sight by the time they're done checking your "ID". It gets worse with the snipers in watchtowers. Even if you are wearing a ninja uniform that completely covers your face, they will instantly recognize you as an impostor from hundreds of feet away and shoot you on sight.

** ''Absolution'' averts this somewhat. Entering a low-level restricted area without a disguise will first result in a warning, followed by an attempted arrest if the player lingers, then deadly force if the situation escalates further. High-level security areas start at "attempting arrest" and escalates to deadly force normally. The "shoot on sight" rules will only apply during missions where certain types of enemies are actively hunting 47.

* TrilogyCreep: Both "Hitman Trilogy", a boxset for the PS2, and "Hitman HD Trilogy", a similar set for the [=PS3=] and 360, actually feature the second, third and fourth entries in the Hitman series (Silent Assassin, Contracts and Blood Money), skipping the original game in the entirely. The original game in the series, Hitman Codename 47, was a PC-exclusive; not to mention Contracts is, in effect, a remake of it.

* NoGearLevel: In ''Hitman 2'', you start the last mission with nothing but the reel of piano wire, while every enemy has a gun - and no spare ammo to loot. It is immensely satisfying when you break into your weapons storage locker after skulking around and being extremely vulnerable.
