* CompleteMonster: [[spoiler:The real Alex Mercer]] was a cold-blooded MadScientist who bragged about making the Blacklight virus ten times as deadly as it already was. When asked how he felt about his work being used on human test subjects, he replied "[[LackOfEmpathy I wasn't being paid to feel]]". Later, after being pursued by Blackwatch agents and cornered at Penn Station, he decided to [[spoiler:[[TakingYouWithMe Mercer release the Blacklight virus on Manhattan as he was gunned down]], despite being aware that his own sister]] was in the city at the time; this final act of callousness resulted in the deaths of over 10 million people. After discovering this, [[spoiler:the virus itself]] [[EvenEvilHasStandards expresses disgust]] with [[spoiler:Mercer's]] crimes.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic?: The level in which you fight [[spoiler:the Supreme Hunter while a nuke is counting down]] is called One Thousand Suns, a reference to Robert Oppenheimer, who was himself referencing (or at least thinking of) the Bhagavad Gita, Hindu scripture, after the first successful test of the atomic bomb at the Trinity site (during what was, for extra fun, called the Manhattan Project). In three words, the developers crammed references to world-destroying superweapons, scientific progress and consequences, the phrase "I am become Death, the shatterer of worlds," a religious quote, and two puns. ...Or maybe they were just talking about [[spoiler:the nuke]]. It's hard to tell.

*** And during the minigame "events" that require you to kill a certain number of enemies in set amounts of time to get a Bronze, Silver or Gold medal, the ability of Hunters to enter a mode where they swing around blindly and cannot be blocked or stopped makes them frustrating beyond imagining.

* GuideDangIt: The Web of Intrigue. Only about half the targets you need to consume will be easy to find, and you'll likely find them by accident or by consuming military targets. The rest only spawn in certain areas (even if the Infected have taken said areas over), and only if you've consumed the previous ones in the chain. As you fill out the Web, tracking them down becomes even harder. Worse still, they can be killed, and won't respawn for several minutes. You also have to be pretty close to ground level to get them to spawn in the first place, so a flyover with a helicopter will only work if you practically skim the pavement.

* CompleteMonster: If you keep up on the Web of Intrigue, [=McMullen=] and the others behind the Hope, Idaho incident.
** [[spoiler:The real Alex Mercer;]] in some respects he's a smaller-scale but arguably more disturbing version of [[DoctorWho Davros]]. Davros was gleeful at the thought of releasing a virus that would exterminate all life in the universe; [[spoiler:Mercer]] doesn't care about the ramifications of his modification of the Redlight virus because ''it's not his job to care''. (when asked how it made him feel, he responds "I wasn't ''paid'' to feel.") For Davros, the thought of causing all life everywhere to be snuffed out was his highest ambition; for [[spoiler:Mercer]], it's just another day at the office.
