--> '''Khan''': You reap what you sow, Artyom. Force answers force, war breeds war, and death only brings death. To break this vicious circle one must do more than [[ViewersAreMorons act without any thought or doubt]].

* BlastOut: Bourbon and the bandit leader at the ''Suharevskaya'' station (called "Dry" in the English version). [[spoiler: The bandit leader dies, Bourbon apparently dies. Last light reveals the latter survived.]]

Added DiffLines:
* PostApocalypticGasmask: Moscow has been contaminated after nuclear war. Gasmasks are required for traversing irradiated tunnels and the surface, and since filters only last so long these sequences are effectively {{Timed Mission}}s. Last Light has a dedicated button for wiping off any dirt, water, or blood that's spilled on the mask.

* XMeetsY: ''Film/{{CHUD}}'' meets ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu''. Alternately, ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' (post-apocalyptic nuclear holocaust setting) mixed with equal parts ''VideoGame/HalfLife'' (only [[HeroicMime you]] can save the world) and ''Franchise/{{Bioshock}}'' (substituting subway tunnels for ocean floor ones). It could also be ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'' with a heavy dose of ''Franchise/SilentHill'' for atmosphere.

Why did that have italics on it?
* OptionalStealth: The game is essentially this trope. You have a (useless) knife and a (lethal) set of throwing knives, almost every weapon is silent or has a silenced variant, and you can purchase a set of black stealth armor that helps conceal you from enemy vision. On the other hand, you have an arsenal of grenades and can purchase such weapons as a ''heavy automatic shotgun'' if stealth isn't your thing. However, it's certainly encouraged to sneak around, and the ''GoldenEnding'' requires you to not only use stealth, but to not kill a single enemy on some of the infiltration missions.

** You may able to slaughter dozens of mutants by acting like Rambo, but trying to do the same to human enemies and they will kill you in seconds. Heck, even regular bandits will pose a problem to you.

** [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The dev team]] made it so that shot does just as well on body armor as it would in real life, which is why it takes only a shell or two to kill most mutants, but just one soldier can tank a half dozen blasts point blank before going down, but also be done in by just a couple dirty 5.45x39mm rounds.

[[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Although, that doesn't stop them from offing you with 1-2 shotgun shell]].

It's either jury-rigged or jerry-built, not jerry-rigged or jury-built
* UnbreakableWeapons: Surprisingly enough, all the weapons in the game, both the ones jerry-rigged in the Metro and the over-twenty-years-old mil-spec ones left around in '''extremely''' hostile conditions, are 100% reliable, even when firing the undeniably dirty ammunition the Metro produces and the {{Idle Animation}}s showing that they are rather fragile indeed[[labelnote:examples]]the Bastards's fire rate selector breaks off and the Duplet's stock comes loose[[/labelnote]]. The worst thing that can happen is the Bastard overheating, and even for that, you have to ''really'' abuse it [[ViolationOfCommonSense in a way no sane player would ever do]][[labelnote:how?]]spray two entire magazines nonstop[[/labelnote]].
