* VindicatedByHistory: The game, over time, became a financial success by word of mouth.

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: Outright encouraged by the developers.

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: Outright encouraged by the developers. The gameplay is fairly simple, consisting of rudimentary stealth sequences interspersed with physics puzzles and adventure game-style puzzles, but the story is much more complex and detailed.

*** Rather famously, Markiplier named his companion cube, a small box, as "Tiny Box Tim."

* TheCrocIsTicking: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PvZgwL9O7M terror music]], which signifies that a monster is chasing you. Apart from being very bad news whenever it happens, the sound itself is terrifying, sounding like someone screaming bloody murder.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Daniel. [[spoiler:Is he as dense as the flashbacks imply, or is it [[ObfuscatingStupidity an act]]]]? [[spoiler: Does he really regret torturing and killing all those people or is he just mad at Alexander for lying to him regarding his promise to keep him safe from the Shadow?]]

* BreatherLevel: After the heart-stopping panic of [[spoiler: the water demon in the cellar]] Daniel arrives at a peaceful (if slightly bizarre) Back Hall. Then it turns FromBadToWorse. So much worse.

* ComedicSociopathy: The game is horrifying to play, especially alone at night, but watching other people play it while freaking out is inherently hilarious. ''[[HypocriticalHumor You]]'' will probably be whimpering/screaming profanity during gameplay, but that doesn't stop it from being terribly amusing. Playing it with observers on On Live is a good example of this.

* CompanionCube: Not so much on Daniel (the player character)'s part, but many players will find and cling to some item in the environment as a security blanket -- for example, PewDiePie often picks up (and talks to) random objects, naming and giving them voices, as a self-comfort measure.

* CrossoverShip: Daniel/[[VideoGame/AliceMadnessReturns Alice]] has gained quite a following because of their similarities (both being British and mentally instable, for starters.)

* MemeticMutation: Milky Way candies, thanks to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4w0_n1Yras a popular video]] of a guy playing it while on Skype with friends, in which one mentions having a bag of fun size-versions of the candy while the Amnesia player is freaking out.

* {{Narm}}: In the first area of the game you can hear a strange sound coming from some sort of animal outside. While not the scariest thing by ''far'', it's been known to spook some players. Unless those players are from Canada or the UK, who will probably recognize it as the call of the majestic aquatic bird known as the Loon or Diver.

* NightmareRetardant: Generally occurs when you're [[ComedicSociopathy laughing at videos of people crapping themselves]], but Jeno, the dude with the British accent, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdLfR0PqLb8 does some things]] that make encounters with monsters hilarious for a whole different reason...

* ParanoiaFuel: Directly related to NothingIsScarier. [[spoiler:Monsters really don't appear that often, and none of them actually ''attack'' you until a good 1/3 of the way into the game... but]] you'll be surprised at how often you wind up hiding in a cabinet or corner because you ''think'' you heard a monster.

* PlayerPunch: While you might [[spoiler: suspect what Daniel had done prior to his amnesiac state, the full grasp of it won't hit you until you reach the TortureCellar]]. These are scattered about to lesser degrees throughout the TortureCellar, as well -- you'll feel like you've bruised your ribs by the end of it.

* TheWoobie: Yes, even in ''this'' horror-filled game there is still a woobie -- Daniel. Listen to some of his dialogues (especially the one where he is in the storage "but why is it so dark?" and the one about the morgue).

** Alexander.
