** The entire market chase. From the amount of ways to fail to some of Miroslav Corda's methods to get away, such as knocking down store things like a child to ''releasing chickens to bother Norman''. Norman adds to the Narm by being annoyed by the chickens.

* AssPull: [[spoiler:The The reveal that Shelby [[spoiler:Scott Shelby, one of the player characters, is the Origami Killer]] can come across as this. While it doesn't come completely out of nowhere, and there's plenty of {{Foreshadowing}} if you know where to look, some gamers still see the twist as questionable, failing to comprehend how someone who [[spoiler:is as overweight and unfit as Scott]] could set up the trials for Ethan, or how [[spoiler:even when [[InternalMonologue thinking to himself]], meaning that no one could possibly overhear him, Scott never once lets on his true identity [[RuleOfDrama for the sake of a dramatic reveal]]]].

** InUniverse, if you win the sword fight against Jason, Ethan will pretend to cut him down while Jason dramatically utters "My life...is at an end..." In the very next level, Jason suffers his PlotTriggeringDeath.

** Jason, who is just ten years old, does some incredibly dumb things that has many fans instantly dislike him. He wanders away from Ethan in a crowded shopping mall and when Ethan catches up, he tells his son not to wander off again. What does Jason do? Wander off anyway while his father was trying to pay for a balloon he bought for him. When Ethan does find his son outside the mall and across the street, Jason attempts to cross the street to get to his father ''[[TooDumbToLive without even looking both ways before crossing]]''. This gets him hit by a car and he later dies from his injuries. While a four to six year child old would likely do what Jason did due to being very young and not knowing any better, Jason, unless he is supposed to suffer from some kind of developmental disability which is very clearly not intended, should by all means be old enough to know not to be wandering off on his own or trying to cross a busy street without watching where he was going.
*** Jason's odd behavior is largely due to him originally being younger during development, before writers had to make him older to tone down the dark and cruel content surrounding the death of a child.

** There's also Lauren, a mother mourning the loss of her only child. [[spoiler:And there really is no happy ending in store for her: she either dies over the course of the game, or survives only to find out that the sweet private detective she's grown attached to while trying to track down her son's killer together ''is'' actually the killer in question. Ouch.]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: If you lose the pretend swordfight against Jason during the prologue, Ethan will fall down and play dead. Shaun will then walk over to Ethan and kneel beside him as if making sure he's okay. [[spoiler:It's uncomfortably similar to the scene that occurs if Ethan gets shot by the police during the last chapter, where Shaun will cry over his father's body and beg him to wake up.]]

* HypeBacklash: Opinions about the game have become significantly more critical in the years after its release. Interestingly, this seems to have been spurred on by a LetsPlay done by WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay, which mocked the game with a critical tone.
