* ComicBookTime: The timeline in-game is left pretty vague most of the time, but a bare bones chronology can be constructed with clues from various points of the game.[[labelnote:In detail]] The End of Days event can date the game to at least 2012, because of its premise in the Mayan Doomsday theory. It is possible that the game could have begun even earlier than that, since Marianne Chen noting that she thought things would be different with a Democrat in office potentially places the game at any point in UsefulNotes/BarackObama's first term. At the other end of the timeline, the Assault on the Orochi Tower in Issue #11 can be dated to early 2015, since a small white board in the Orochi tower reads Je Suis Charlie, the slogan used in solidarity after the terrorist attacks on french satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo in January of that year.[[/labelnote]]

** Though not always. If a BloodMagic user gains enough resources (think the Rogue's Combo Points in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'') - for example, a healing/shielding spell called ''The Scarlet Arts'' "requiring" five points - the ability is cast without a detrimental effect. However, unlike other abilities, BloodMagic is a little lax on the amount of resources it requires. If you cast it "early", it will gradually strip you of a small portion of your health to repay what's quite literally a "blood debt".

* [[ViewersAreGeniuses Players Are Geniuses]] / OnlySmartPeopleMayPass: Investigation missions are built around solving puzzles, and frequently require you to do actual research using the in-game browser ... or just looking it up on GameFAQs. A quest might require the player to use in-game clues to find the entrance to a secret lair, then solve various logic puzzles, and then look up a particular reference to a classic Latin work to get the correct code. Another quest might have a segment where Morse code needs to be transcribed and translated to reveal map coordinates for where to go next..

* ChainsawGood: One of the side missions involves you picking up a special chainsaw weapon, which can instantly kill zombies and deal heavy damage to all else. In addition, a chainsaw was the second auxillary weapon released.


Added DiffLines:

* EntropyAndChaosMagic: In this game, Chaos Magic is eclectic, one third RealityWarper, one third GravityMaster, and one third SpontaneousWeaponCreation. Spells in this category are used for crowd control, drawing aggro, and inflicting status effects, and have names mostly themed after mathematical concepts, specifically physics and probability.

* ShownTheirWork: It's amazing how much effort Funcom puts into this game's lore. For instance, Ptahmose, who you encounter in Egypt, has seven children who [[spoiler: watch over the City of the Sun God and keep Akenhaten imprisoned]]. Not only is Ptahmose an actual historical figure- a Vizier under Akenhaten- but all of his children are named after the seven children the historical Ptahmose had!

* GeniusDitz: Scrapyard Edgar is pretty much a stereotypical hillbilly... yet he managed to create the Quantum Brace, a device that is essentially allows for artificial Chaos Magic, out of nothing but scrap in his junkyard and the quantum core of an Orochi drone.

* UnflinchingWalk: The assault rifle ability ''Demolition, Man''(not to be confused with the quest "Demolition Man") weaponizes this, placing explosives on enemies you've hit. If you're not facing them when they go off, the damage cannot glance (i.e. be reduced).
