** The ear-splitting metallic screech of a pissed-off Big Sister.

* {{Narm}}: The first encounter with the Big Sister in Adonis is a frantic fight for your life: you have a rivet gun, Electrobolt and very little health and ADAM to defend yourself, and you're desperately trying to fend off this beast as it slings fireballs, rams into you, and tears the room apart trying to kill you. The best possible strategy for this encounter: [[SheatheYourSword do nothing.]] ''The Big Sister can't kill you, and you can't kill her'', so you might as well save your ammo and consumables. It's not even a HeadsIWinTailsYouLose boss: Delta will bottom out at one HP, and the Big Sister can't be hurt at all. This means Delta can walk around, calmly picking up items and listening to one of Ryan's recordings while the Big Sister is hammering him with everything she's got to no avail, before turning tail and running away for no apparent reason. Once the illusion breaks, it's almost impossible to take that part seriously ever again.

*** After many long years, BioShock: The Collection fixes this long standing glitch. While the vending machines' did add to the danker atmosphere of BioShock 2's locales in the original, the remastered version does at least have the compromise that the machines are overall less talkative than BioShock 1's prior to interacting with them.

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: Similar to the the wrench and electrobolt combo from ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' (which is still viable here, just not as broken), we have the upgraded drill and Winter Blast combo (although some people opt to use Insect Swarm instead). Oh, and go and [[ItsEasySoItSucks complain]] afterward.

Only that was a wrench. ThisIsADrill. This is even ''encouraged'' with the Drill Specialist Tonic, which essentially doubles your EVE but prevents you from using anything but the Drill, Research Camera, Hack tool, and Winter Blast combo (although some people opt to use Insect Swarm instead).

* 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.]]

* 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.
