Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene: Jacket carrying Hooker out of Fisker's mansion, as seen in the cover art and trailer. What makes this iconic is that it serves as an EstablishingCharacterMoment for Jacket, as it juxtaposes his [[AxCrazy violent nature]] with his [[PetTheDog potential for kindness]] in a single image.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfFanservice: The characters of ''Hotline Miami' tend to look rather strange and {{Gonk}}ish in order to fit the unsettling mood of the game, but there's a lot of fanart that cleans them up and makes them look glamorously attractive. Biker and the Girlfriend get a lot of this, and Jacket tends to look just as good as Creator/RyanGosling when he's presented without his mask.

* GoodBadBugs: Hugging a wall sometimes allows you to perform a standing execution on an enemy on the other side. Killing enemies through walls obviously makes some rooms much easier.

* HarsherInHindsight: Richter [[spoiler: being revealed to have also received the same phone calls as Jacket is one thing. The sequel reveals that he is even more of a nice guy than Jacket is (he doesn't seem to hate anyone, even Russians), has a sick mother to take care of, and seems to have been a mere civilian before being dragged into killing people.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: The game (as well as it's sequel) send some very mixed signals in the regard that for a game with a heavy underlying message of self-destructive nature of violence as well as amorality of enjoying such violence, it sure makes that violence look, feel and play very good.

* HellIsThatNoise: Any time the soundtrack hits a dissonant chord, which is often, but special mention goes out to the synthesizers on the tune that occurs at the intro to each mission.
