** The police sketch of Max during the news broadcast of [[spoiler: Rodrigo's death]] is of his appearance in the first game, complete with squint and slightly raised eyebrow.



* MythologyGag:
** When continuing from a checkpoint, the loading screens are in the style of the graphic novel panels from the previous games.
** Quitting to the main menu during the first New Jersey flashback level changes the background to a [[https://i.pinimg.com/originals/f9/60/e0/f960e02c04e2a2d49b881971bc79c6ac.jpg recreation of the menu art]] from the first game.

* OrganTheft: This turns out to be the [[spoiler:man reason why Rodrigo, the UFE, and the Cracha Preto are working together - they kidnap, kill, or shoot up civilians and gangsters, take them to an abandoned hotel, and take their organs for sale on the black market - and these organs are worth quite a lot.]]

Added DiffLines:

* SequelDifficultySpike: ''3'' goes back to the NintendoHard nature of the first game with enemies often having more health than Max. The "In The Zone" BulletTime mechanics of the second game are gone now, and painkillers are scarce. Enemy bullets in real-time also travel much faster than in the first two games, encouraging the use of cover.


Added DiffLines:

** Rockstar's portrayal of São Paulo is praiseworthy for the level of authenticity and work put into it. Rockstar went as far as bringing 3D scanning equipment to the city to ensure that buildings and citizens would be accurately modeled.

* EliteMooks: Elite U.F.E. tactical troops are equipped with full body armor and military-grade weaponry; they can take multiple shots to bring down (what would be fatal damage to a gangbanger only knocks them down for a couple seconds), and wear ballistic helmets that can deflect one or two headshots.
** GasMaskMooks: Some of the U.F.E. elite soldiers wear gas masks and use laser sights on their guns. Justified as these guys usually try to use tear gas against you.



* HeavilyArmoredMook: Max fights a few of these at various points throughout the game [[spoiler: (at the office building, the derelict hotel and the police station).]] They're armed with light machine guns and can survive almost [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Juggernaut]]-levels of damage before going down if you don't get headshots. There're actually two varieties: One can take multiple headshots, doesn't flinch from body shots and gets a cutscene whenever it shows up, while the second only needs one and can be knocked down.

* BadassNormal: Mona Sax's ability to mow through mooks can be explained by the fact that she's a professional assassin. Max Payne is just a detective, and how much he survives over the course of all three games is... yeah. He's probably killed more than one thousand people by the time the credits roll on ''Max Payne 3''.
