* GrowingTheBeard: Many fans agree that ''Hitman'' has gotten progressively better with each installment, with ''Blood Money'' being considered the best game so far. Some think that the beard was shaved for ''Absolution'', but that the 2016 is showing some promising stubble.

Some think that on the beard was shaved for ''Absolution'', but that series (although the 2016 title is showing some promising stubble.fighting it for the title). ''Absolution'' temporarily shaved the beard, and as mentioned before, the 2016 game is considered a massive improvent and is considered to be either as good or slightly below or above ''Blood Money''.



** The 2016 game seems to be this for Absolution.

* VideoGameMoviesSuck: The film received generally negative reviews. Website/RottenTomatoes reported that 14% of critics gave the film a positive rating, based on 98 reviews, with an average score of 3.7/10. [=Metacritic=] gave the film a metascore of 35 based on 22 reviews. The most common complaints are a lacking, often confusing plot, dry acting and extreme violence. However, film critic Creator/RogerEbert gave it three stars out of four, saying "Hitman stands right on the threshold between video games and art. On the wrong side of the threshold, but still, give it credit".
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to a leaked near-final (or even final) script, the ExecutiveMeddling ruined the plot. The script involved Markov, the FSB agent, hiring 47 to assassinate the real president, intending to rule Russia through the president's BodyDouble loyal to the FSB and sending a Spetsnaz team called back from Chechnya after 47. The intrigue would be foiled by Agent Whittier, who plants a bug on Markov and gives the recording of Markov's conversation with the body double to a Russian general. This also explains why 47 kidnaps Nika: he interrogates her, and she mentions that sometimes the president was NotHimself, hinting at the double's existence early on, leading to TheReveal during the meeting between Markov and the double in the morgue.

* GeniusBonus: Mark Parchezzi III wields a customized Colt [=M1911A1=] with ivory grips. 47 wields customized AMT Hardballer(s). TheOtherWiki describes the Hardballer as a "clone of the M1911". [[spoiler:Parchezzi is a defective clone, while 47 easily kills him]]. The funny part? [[spoiler:The Hardballers are often described as defective clones of the [=M1911A1=]]].

* AcceptableTargets: Quite literally. Most of the people 47 is assigned to kill are thoroughly unpleasant types, such as {{Arms Dealer}}s, [[PaedoHunt paedophiles]], mobsters, white supremecists, {{Mad Scientist}}s and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking hipsters]].

** Jesper Kyd is considered ''the'' Hitman composer. Fans usually don't get mad if he doesn't make the music to a game, but most will be disappointed by it.

** The bad ending of ''Blood Money'', where failing to twirl your control stick or press W [[GuideDangIt despite no on-screen instructions]] will result in [[spoiler:47 being cremated alive]]. The beautiful rendition of Ave Maria playing over this ''does not help''.
** The sound of a heartbeat and your health bar flickering to life are a good hint...

* NarmCharm: Some of the disguises are this (especially in ''Blood Money''). You'd think dressing as a giant red chicken would be stupid, yet it feels completely natural on the level it appears in. Other Examples being a Birthday Clown, A Chipmunk, a Plague Doctor, and a "Vampire Magician"
