* SpiritualSuccessor - To old arcade shoot 'em ups, and VideoGame/QuakeI, in terms of random locations being mashed together to form a bare-bones FPS. The game has also spawned its own set of spiritual successors: ''NecroVision'', developed by The Farm 51 whose team includes former People Can Fly designers, and ''VideoGame/{{Dreamkiller}}'', an original shooter from the developers of ''Overdose''. Most eployees of People Can Fly are currently in the employ of EpicGames, who ended up working on ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}''. The rest of them founded Flying Wild Hog, who made ''VideoGame/HardReset'' and [[VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013 the recent Shadow Warrior]].

->''Painkiller is in the same bucket as ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' and the original ''VideoGame/{{DOOM}}s'' in that it serves as an antidote to fancy-pants complex modern [=FPSes=]. There are no stealth elements, no key hunting, no escort quests, no dorky support characters dribbling in your ear, no mission objectives besides '''kill everyone'''--it's just you, some guns, and the entire population of Murdertown between you and where you need to be. It's pure genocidal fun.''

* MysteriousPast - Played with. In the first game is frequently mentioned that something presumably evil in the past of Daniel prevents him from enter Heaven, even tho Daniel swears there's no such thing and he was a completely upright man. [[spoiler: In Hell & Damnation, however, while remembering his mortal life in the intro, Daniel is presented with some glimpses that hints at a violent past in the military...but in the ending we learn that Daniel could not enter Heaven because he was infact not really dead, but just in a coma, and so he was never actually judged for his life to begin with. So, whatever there is really something bad or not in Daniel's past, is ultimately still to be clarified]].

* CableCarActionSequence: Subverted in the "Snowy Bridge" level of ''Painkiller''. Daniel takes a wobbly gondola from one part of the level to another in peace, a nice change from the long level full of tough samurai and slippery ninjas.
