** OTOH, [[spoiler:you can preserve the Flux State by fusing the dragon Feuerschwinge with a (somewhat) BenevolentAI, and most of the Yellow Lotus will re-locate to Seattle if you destroy the police's stockpile of military weapons. Ways and means, chummer]].



** Except in the Director's Cut ending if you fuse APEX with Feuerschwinge. Somehow, this leads to Flux State beating back the attack in the epilogue. "Much to Lofwyr's surprise." Yours and ours both, buddy.

** Also [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] as far as the Kreuzbasar and the German Flux State are concerned; the ending text makes it abundantly clear that the Flux State has about a year to go before Saeder-Krupp comes in and has their run of the joint, turning Berlin into another corporate fiefdom that is once again divided by a wall.

[[spoiler:Unless you let APEX enslave Feuerschwinge, in which case it negotiates a truce which maintains it behind that wall]].



* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:You can stop the destruction of Berlin, but the Flux State is doomed to be dismantled and Berlin will be [[UsefulNotes/BerlinWall separated by a wall again]]. Even worse, you can go to work for the guy that helps cause it.]]

All you have to do is let it mind-jack Feuerschwinge]].

* AlternateHistory: This was already a given for Shadowrun, but it seems especially noticeable in Hong Kong, since the Kowloon Walled City that most of the game takes place in was demolished in real life back in 1994, unless you find the optional dialogue that establishes that is, in fact, [[HistoryRepeats a second Walled City built in the image of the original.]]

* BloodKnight: Dietrich, whose shamanic totem, the Dragonslayer, compels him to constantly be fighting something bigger and more powerful than himself, whether it be a literal dragon, a megacorp, or the concept of authority itself.

* BloodKnight: Dietrich, whose shamanic totem, the Dragonslayer, compels him to constantly be fighting something bigger and more powerful than himself, whether it be himself. He's fully aware and accepting of the fact that the Dragonslayer will eventually compel him into fighting a literal dragon, battle he can't survive. [[spoiler:The PC can suggest shifting his focus to more nebulous but still unbeatable targets, like a megacorp, megacorp or the concept enemies of authority itself.the Flux State]].

** The Director's Cut allows the player to decide how their teammates will upgrade their equipment and abilities. This means Blitz can be made to focus on combat instead of decking, assuming the player has that covered. This becomes problematic in Blitz's character-specific mission, [[spoiler: as he has a mandatory decking sequence which is a lot more difficult if the player doesn't upgrade him appropriately, and being beaten forces you to restart the mission.]]

* TranslationConvention: In spite of the english text being peppered by german language ocasionally, everyone is speaking german as made clear by the Trial Run quest, where the PC can complain that one of the team members doesn't speak the local lingua franca.
