* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Hoyt Volker]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive boss]] of the biggest slave-trading ring in the South-Pacific, as well as the [[ManBehindTheMan one responsible]] for [[TheCorrupter using drugs]] to turn [[TheHeavy Vaas Montenegro]] with into his [[TheDragon right-hand madman]]. He is [EstablishingCharacterMoment first introduced]] forcing a small group of innocent civilians to run across an active minefield. In his second introduction, he [[ManOnFire burns one]] of [[BadBoss his own men]] alive and tells the rest of his privateers to kill any island native they see on sight. In his last appearance, he kills Jason's friend Sam in the middle of a poker game and threatens to cut off one of [[PlayerCharacter Jason Brody's]] [[{{Fingore}} fingers]] every time he loses a round, a threat that he makes good on. A psychopathic sadist who lacks even a single redeeming quality, Volker may [[FauxAffablyEvil seem pleasant]] but is in fact [[TheDreaded the root of all the evil, fear, and madness happening on the islands of Rakyat]].

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Hoyt Volker]] is the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive boss]] of the biggest slave-trading ring in the South-Pacific. He's described as the root of all the evil happening on the island, and is responsible for [[TheCorrupter manipulating Vaas with drugs]] into becoming a madman. In his first appearance, he gleefully forces a small group of innocent civilians to run across an active minefield. The second time we see him, he [[ManOnFire burns one]] of [[BadBoss his own men]] alive and tells the rest of his privateers to kill any island native they see on sight. Finally, during a poker game, he kills [[spoiler: Jason's friend Sam]] and threatens to cut off one of [[PlayerCharacter Jason's]] [[{{fingore}} fingers]] every time he loses a round, [[spoiler: a threat that he makes good on]]. Volker may [[FauxAffablyEvil seem pleasant]], but is in fact an utterly psychotic {{sadist}} without a single redeeming quality.

** Did you think you were safe from the sharks in the rivers? Hah. Crocodiles are arguably worse, since it's incredibly hard to see them with the camera, and due to the rivers not having lots of boats, you're very open to attacks from them. The worst thing is that crocodiles are never used for crafting, making them worthless to hunters. It helps that they've one of the scariest JumpScares in the game. About the only good thing about them is that you can, at least, get into a QTE with them to instakill them - sharks require a boat or some range.

* FollowTheLeader: The basic framework of the game (burning down outposts for takeover of allies, manipulating the environment, openworld mechanics, and so on) has been used for subsequent sequels.

** Also, given that Jason (under his disguise) and Sam made some rather noisy attacks on some privateer's installations during the later part of the plot (and the game doesn't forbid you to attack outposts while wearing the privateer's disguise during the open-world exploration of the southern island), Hoyt must already know that Sam is a mole and which disguise Jason is wearing.

**And more important, they have a video where Riley identify him as his brother before you interrogate Riley playing. By the time of the poker game, Hoyt probably had time to watch it.

* MostAnnoyingSound: If you play poker in single-player, the [=NPCs=] in the bar will NOT STOP COMMENTING on how many pirates you've killer, how many targets you've assassinated or what an AMAZING hunter you are.
** Rebels at your liberated outposts have a lot of looped dialogue, the most common being one of them shouting: "Whose the man? Me!". This is the worst when you've just liberated an outpost, because it makes sound like the rebels are claiming credit for your hard work.
