** Stalkers, which are just about the cheapest enemies you'll ever find. They play hide-and-seek behind boxes (and there are ''always'' boxes), poking their head around corners just to see if you're still there. Then they charge at you with ridiculous speed, knock you down if you connect, then run away so fast that you need near-perfect reflexes to land a limb blow. Even if you do manage to blow away their legs, they get ''even cheaper''. If you don't kill them quickly, they crawl at you (faster than most enemies can run) and swipe at you continuously until you die, which will be quickly. They also come in groups of 4 or 5, at least. Better have upgraded that stasis unit or better yet the force gun; you will '''need''' it.

* GameBreaker: The Contact Beam is impractical for use on a regular basis against standard enemies, so it's not a ''total'' gamebreaker. It is, however, a ''boss breaker.'' Brutes go down in two hits if you target their limbs, and even the final boss on hardcore mode is no match for the Contact Beam. However, if the Contact Beam is your only weapon equipped ''most'' enemies will spawn [=CB=] batteries (read: ammo) when killed. The true game-breaker is the HandCannon that unlocks for beating Hardcore Mode, but by then, you've already [[BraggingRightsReward done ''almost'' everything in the game]], so no harm there.

* GameBreaker: EvenBetterSequel: While the first Dead Space was no slouch, the second game made several refinements to the combat and varied up the environments, to where Dead Space 2 is considered by fans to be the better game gameplay-wise.

** Isaac's hallucinations of Nicole often have her eyes and mouth emit beams of light, which looks less scary and more like she's turned into a giant Jack 'O Lantern.

* ThatOneBoss: That freaking regenerating Ubermorph that you face off with at the finale. It's almost totally invincible and will hunt you throughout the level like a bloodhound. There ''is'' a way to kill it for good but it's tricky and completely optional due to the fact that it's a glitch.

** Not entirely true. Zealot mode has more difficult enemies than Hardcore mode, whose enemies are on par with Survivalist difficulty, and it's not necessary to complete Zealot before Hardcore. Though to be fair to hardcore mode, you can only save three times. If it had tougher enemies than Zealot mode, the game would be basically NintendoHard.

* AccidentalInnuendo: In a later level of the game ([[spoiler:in which you revisit the ''Ishimura'']]), there are ultraviolet floodlights set up to aid decontamination crews in scrubbing up bloodstains and such. Of course, [[AllMenArePerverts most male gamers]] will read [[ADateWithRosiePalms something different]] into white stains under black lights. (The fact that they are ''huge'' just makes it that much funnier.) (The stains. The stains are huge, not... [[ThatCameOutWrong Get your mind out of the gutter!]])
