* FauxSymbolism: The Developer Commentary jokingly delves into this at one point for the conversation about the rat you need to lure with blood to get a gun. The developers start talking about Cold War powers, how the Rat represents Soviet Russia and ARID fell out of the sky like a Bald Eagle... ''extremely'' strained metaphors that have nothing to do with anything in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* HopeIsScary: Toward the end of the second series, we the audience honestly don't know if the police are going to find Rose Stagg alive or dead, and the writers keep yanking the dog's chain on that one, too.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Anything Spector does that seems to be nice or caring. Does he actually care about anyone, or is he solely doing it to maintain a cover?

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: "Athlete Cured" is heavily based around a riff taken from {{Film/ThisIsSpinalTap "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight"]]: Supposedly the guitarist at the time had been playing the riff as a warm-up, and Mark E. Smith, having never heard the song before, quickly wrote down his own lyrics to go with it.

** According to one bio of the band, when Brix came up with the bass-line that became the foundation of "Elves", everyone in the band ''but'' her immediately recognized it as "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by Music/TheStooges.
** "Greenway" is based around the same music as "Gameboy" by Greek comedy metal group Anorimoi, with a completely different vocal melody and new, English lyrics: This time it was blatant enough that they credited a member of Anorimoi as a co-writer, so it can also be viewed as a CoverVersion / SongParody.

* FridgeHorror: A meta and in-universe example. Alexandria will never see Roy again, but will likely remember him. Imagine when she grows older and eventually realizes she [[spoiler: accidentally aided someone with a suicide attempt.]]

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids:The reviewers like to compare this film with ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', without mentioning the amounts of violence and adult themes that this film had. Not to mention that the narrator of "the delightful fairy tale" wants the little girl [[spoiler: assist him in killing himself]].

Added DiffLines:

** When Roy narrates the Indian's backstory, the visuals depict an Indian as in the subcontinent, despite Roy's use of the words "wigwam" and "squaw" clearly referring to Indian as in Native American. However, this makes more sense when one remembers that we are seeing the story as Alexandria imagines in. Having grown up in Europe, she would of course hear the word "Indian" and think of the subcontinent, not the Native American.

* TheUntwist: After Spector wrestles a lock of hair from Katie that she had nicked, the latter asks whose hair it is. You'd think that it was Sarah Kay's, as Spector had clipped hair from each of his victims. Spector claims that it is a lock of his mother's hair, which he washes regularly to keep fresh. By the end of the second series, it turns out... it is his mother's hair.
