Alternatively, after escaping, he falls into a deep sleep. There he continues mutating until he becomes a completely inhuman EldritchAbomination. He (or "it", now) unconsciously mutates all the Splicers so much that they take on entirely new Lovecraftian forms and think that they're an ancient alien race. [[XCom Then they found a city called T'Leth from the ruins of Rapture, and many decades later, emerge on the surface to do battle with soldiers that can somehow throw grenades underwater.]]

** We aren't looking at this closely enough; the Big Daddies aren't who the equipment was designed for. It started out as maintenance equipment, and was co-opted by the Bigs, who are ''sick fucking bastards, by the way,'' to help them "protect" the innocent girls that they mind control and turn into ADAM processors. Like a lot of horrible things, this wasn't part of the plan originally, but became institutionalized when it went out of control. Which is why we see infrastructure dedicated to Big Daddies and Little Sisters.

The HealingFactor provided by the ADAM slug in his stomach is why he is able to stay along [[WMG/TimeLord J]][[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld a]][[BadassBookworm m]][[GeniusBruiser i]][[{{Badass}} e]] for so long without turning into chunky salsa. This fact, combined with the Little Sister mental conditioning and exposure to ImpressivePyrotechnics led to [[MadBomber an unusually deep fascination with rapid pressurized disassembly of large objects]].

* ''[=BioShock=] 2'' even had an Instrumentality plot.
* When the Little Sisters talk of ADAM-infected Splicers being Angels, they weren't being delusional. They were actually almost Angels, having consumed ADAM's blood. Perhaps Rapture is a SEELE experiment and Ryan and Fontaine were manipulated by them, until both went rogue ala [[spoiler:Gendo]]. The knowledge for alien sciences to construct an underwater city is based from the Dead Sea Scrolls. However, the Splicers and consumers of ADAM didn't turn into [[{{Instrumentality}} Tang]] or [[spoiler:[[BiShonen Kaworu]]]], because they consumed the mass-produced low-quality version that only resulted in [[MindScrew insanity]] and ugly disfigurement. It would be further into the future where one could perfect the best host for both cultivating both ADAM and Lilith in the same entity: [[spoiler:the Evangelions and Rei]].

Additionally, little boys have more testosterone when their born, though the level drops until they hit puberty, but is still a lot more then girls. Its possible the testosterone in boys is repellant to them, making the girls the more attractive hosts.

***It could be all this and several more, if the game involves hopping around various cities in various timelines.

Bioshock 3 will be set at some point in the early-to-mid seventies, with Rapture's food/water/ammo stocks near zero and the overwhelming bulk of its population too far gone to make more. Most of the Splicers will have become cannibalistic and some of them will be mutated to the point of being barely recognizable as human. Additionally, Rapture continues to decay and large parts of it will be increasingly submerged as the Big Daddies cannibalize the architecture for parts to fix the salvageable areas.

He ultimately became a Houdini splicer so he could get around faster. By the time Bioshock takes place, he's gotten used to his prosthetics and can walk well enough, but his mobility used to be so limited that, if he ever tried to jump, he'd just fall flat on his face--hence his poem that "when I hop, I never get off the ground." Fitzpatrick openly made fun of Cohen for the loss of his legs, so, after going [[EvilCripple completely insane]], Cohen plastered Fitzpatrick's legs to the piano bench as poetic justice.

The wiki sais "The Vita-Chambers are still functional during the events of BioShock 2. The protagonist, Subject Delta, is revived in a Vita-Chamber at the beginning of the game after he had been killed 10 years earlier. This is accomplished when a Little Sister, acting on behalf of Eleanor Lamb, re-keys the Chamber (and thus the entire Vita-Chamber network) to correspond with Delta's genetic code signature."

* Possibly more popular, as BioShock 2 isn't that well-recieved compared to the original.

Added DiffLines:

**** In this case, one does have to keep in mind {{Gameplay and Story Segregation}}. It's likely that the only reason you can't resurrect in those areas is because a loading screen separates Jack from the nearest Vita-Chamber. Ryan would not have that problem.
