* DefiantToTheEnd: Eleanor. [[BadassBookworm Jesus Christ, Eleanor.]] There's a certain recording in Inner Persephone that makes this abundantly clear. What sells it is [[Creator/SarahBolger Sarah Bolger's delivery.]]
-->"[[SarcasmMode Hello, mother.]] [[ScrewYourUltimatum As you've always said]], I shouldn't be allowed to wander the city in my condition, but without going outside, it's harder to hear much about the world -- [[RebelliousPrincess so I'm learning at home!]] This, I think, is a... porcelain tea service, in the style of Louis the 15th, isn't that right? [[GoodIsNotNice *destroys the tea service*]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Now that's a fascinating sound!]] *sarcastic knocking sound* And this is called a "stained glass window," hand-crafted by [[TakeThat your adoring flock... they've gone to a lot of trouble to capture your likeness, haven't they?]] [[CrazyAwesome *breaks]] [[TookALevelInBadass the window*]]"

* TheUntwist: Lets just say the game doesn't feel the need to succumb to Shyamalan Syndrome, and never feels pressured to throw in a mindblowing plot twist towards the end just because the first game had one. Also josses all the EpilepticTrees speculating that [[spoiler: Sinclair was working for Fontaine, or at least would pull a Fontaine]]. Given the similarly spectacular twist in ''Videogame/BioShockInfinite'' and even the small surprise in Minerva's Den, this makes ''[=BioShock=] 2'' even more of an odd man out.

* ThatOneLevel: The third Folly of Dionysus level in ''The Protector Trials''. You no weapons or money, just a bunch of fully upgraded plasmids and gene tonics. It's ''much'' harder than it sounds.

* HilariousInHindsight: Or perhaps HypocriticalHumor. Near the end of the game, Sofia rants about you [[spoiler: "stealing" her daughter from her and about Eleanor's "ungratefulness" to her loving mother. However, some of the earliest tape diaries you found of Sofia reveal just how little she actually cares for Eleanor as anything other than her tool -- Eleanor was never really her daughter in anything except terms of shared genetics. One even says she had "as little to do as possible" with her birth, implying that Sofia may have actually created Eleanor through IVF and had a surrogate carry her to term, simply because having to deal with pregnancy itself would be too much of a hindrance to her plans. The hypocrisy about stealing Eleanor from her takes on another level when you remember that she herself has been stealing little girls from their families on the surface.]]

** A loopy scientist who communicates with you through a flying machine that has a monitor showing a close-up of his eyes? Sounds like Alex is having the ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Old World Blues]]''.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The whole storyline dealing with Mark Meltzer; a lot of players found his story more intriguing then that of Delta. Some even stating that Mark should have been the player character.

** [[spoiler: Eleanor Lamb can potentially cross this in two of the game's darker endings, killing her mother Sofia in both. In the games worst ending she takes her fathers memories with the intent of using them to help her "take on the world" as it were. Though very much averted in the other two good endings.]]

* CrazyAwesome: Gilbert Alexander was pretty awesome before going mad (leaving behind messages and robots allies to help whoever found him kill him, knowing he was about to suffer WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity) but he still pulls off some cool stuff afterwards (such as singing the Fontaine Futuristics jingle at the top of his voice to prevent you from accessing a voice activated door lock, or hosting a live demonstration of Fontaine Futuristics products...[[spoiler:that try to kill you.]])

** Sofia Lamb in the opening cutscene, where she [[spoiler:forces you to commit suicide in front of poor Eleanor, your bonded Little Sister and ''her own daughter''.]] The woman makes new [[MoralEventHorizon Moral Event Horizons]] with each appearance ''[[SerialEscalation just to cross them]]''.Though as you'll learn during the game she appears to have crossed the line long ago. She'd have you believe that she's going to initiate a new Utopian era for mankind, but thinks nothing of choice and subjects her closest comrades to half-truths and horrific fates. She leaves Gilbert Alexander to [[spoiler:live forever as an abomination, desperate for a taste of ADAM]], [[spoiler:Mark Meltzer is reunited with his daughter and twisted into a Big Daddy]], and Augustus Sinclair [[spoiler:becomes an Alpha Series Big Daddy, and she snidely remarks that the two of you should be the last, as you fight to the death]]. Her intended fate for her daughter, Eleanor, is [[spoiler: to become the base in a gestalt of Rapture's greatest minds, creating a 'Utopian' being with the perfect outlook on the world, yet crushing Eleanor's own personality and conscience in the process]]. She's potentially much worse than Ryan given she's the ''"believes-every-word-she-says"'' type of crazy. She genuinely, ''lovingly'' accepts a few thousand deaths for the common good.
