* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Joseph Bertrand III]] turns ordinary human beings into the Corrupted, performs cruel experiments on Lucy Kuo, uses the Power Transfer Device to turn Vermaak 88 into Forced Conduits in a process that will eventually drive them insane, was responsible for the sacrificial death of Nix's mother and several hundred others in his attempt to activate his own Conduit powers, and, angry that many Conduits appear normal while he, who voluntarily became a Conduit yet transformed into [[EldritchAbomination The Behemoth]], [[BoomerangBigot orders the execution of any Conduits or potential Conduits in the starting move towards total genocide]]. In addition to all that, he also planned on selling the Vermaak as personal soldiers to major powers around the world. Bertrand nearly started an arms race which might have sparked another World War, [[RunningBothSides in charge of both The Militia and, as The Behemoth, in charge of The Corrupted]], thus tugging the strings the whole time. Never fully seeming to realize how terrible a monster he's become, his KarmicTransformation is completely lost on him, despite the fact that the only power he unlocked through the murder of hundreds of innocents being the transformation into a ravenous monster; the only conclusion he draws from this is that [[InsaneTrollLogic if he has become a monster through the activation of his Conduit powers, then all Conduits are monsters, and must be exterminated]].

* AccidentalAesop: Zeke's character arc has a big one. Instead of spending your time wanting what you can't have and trying to accomplish what you're not suited for, if you simply focus on doing your best to help others, you can eventually become great.

* AwesomeMusic: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETfdt5xMc9Q Fade Away]], the end credits theme, especially if you got the good ending.

Added DiffLines:

* FanPreferredCouple: Many fanfic writers prefer to pair Cole up with Kuo, even though their relationship feels mostly professional. This is likely because their interactions on a Good playthrough are very friendly and can feel like ShipTease [[spoiler:and the Evil playthrough ends with them both replacing the BigBad]]. And while there's some light flirtation between Cole and Nix, the latter is loaded with [[AxCrazy issues]].

* TheScrappy: Nix. She's got a tragic back story, but that's treated as a licence to be insane, rather than a reason for her violent streak. It's especially noticeable because she's usually put opposite Kuo, who has more character depth. Nix is crazy, in way that makes you sit back and say, "Can people really be that crazy? I don't think so. And it looks like Cole likes her for some reason. Great, there goes WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief".

--> '''[[ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]]''': "[...] Cole's fat comedy sidekick, who was most just an arse passin' in the first game but gains enough depth and character moments to almost become the emotional heart of the story."

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityLockout: Downplayed. While there are certain things that make ''much'' more sense when you play the first game (Cole's issues with Zeke, his hatred of Kessler, the characters' knowledge of the Beast, and the Beast's identity), the story doesn't require too much knowledge of the first entry.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Pre-release, Cole was heavily redesigned to resemble [[VideoGame/{{Uncharted}} Nathan Drake.]] The backlash against this was large enough for Sucker Punch to reconsider and change Cole back to his original design.
