* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The 2005 BBC documentary ''The Wonderful and Frightening World of Mark E. Smith'' features the band's current members praising Smith and barely containing their excitement at being members of The Fall. About 18 months after the documentary premiered, most of these same musicians were part of the lineup that quit the band the middle of a summer tour by skipping town and abandoning Smith and keyboardist Elena Poulou at a hotel.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Can a film be said to ''avert'' this and still be gorgeous? This movie has some of the best SceneryPorn ever, but every single one of those fantastic locations and impossible pieces of architecture is a ''real place''. There is no, repeat, ''no'' CGI used in these locations, or in the equally astonishing landscape photography. The result is one of the most beautiful movies ''ever''.

* 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.

* 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.]]
