* CompleteMonster:
** ''The Suffering'': [[SoftSpokenSadist Hermes T. Haight]]—pronounced "hate"--is one of the many spirits haunting Carnate Island, and the most sadistic. In life, Hermes was the former executioner at Abbott State Penitentiary, where he killed prisoners in a variety of ways--including [[TheSpock Horace Gage]] via the electric chair, condemning him to a life as an electric phantom--before settling on [[DeadlyGas a clear, odorless gas]], having done so for decades. Becoming curious as to how his victims felt during the execution process, he studied their corpses and phone conversations before deciding to get a taste of his own gas, killing himself. As a spirit, he haunts Carnate, killing various prisoners and guards with his green gas, including ones trying to escape the island from the Malefactors. Attempting to make [[PlayerCharacter Torque]] unleash his inner beast, he later tries to kill him by trapping him in a gas-filled room. Near the end, [[EnemyMine he's forced to help Torque cross a gap]], doing so by gassing an escaping bus and using it as a bridge. A self-described professional [[JustFollowingOrders claiming to be doing his job]], Hermes enjoys the freedom death has given him in regards to killing people, managing to be worse than the actual monsters infesting Carnate.
** ''The Suffering: Ties That Bind'': [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain The Creeper]], originally Luther Stickwell, is a misogynistic, homophobic SerialKiller who haunts what's left of Baltimore. In life, Luther was a former pimp who abused, raped, and murdered several prostitutes before becoming a killer of women, with a body count ranging between 50 and 200. As the Creeper, he continues his killing spree, slaughtering women in a variety of ways, whether it be decapitating them, hanging them in the sewers, burning them alive, or impaling them from behind. He keeps the [[AndIMustScream still-living]] torsos of three women under his trench coat, using them as CombatTentacles to kill his victims. He loves bragging about his past exploits to Torque, seeing real men as strong and brutal. If Dr. Killjoy pits him against Torque, Creeper will be ecstatic about killing him, thinking that he's stealing his glory. A psychotic murderer who repulses many, the Creeper manages to outdo even [[BigBad Blackmore]] in evil.

* ParanoiaFuel: It's implied, particularly in the second game, that there's ''nowhere humans have lived'' that doesn't have an evil enough past for Malefactors to spawn there if something triggers them to.

* ThatOneBoss: Hermes in the first game. Not because of the actual fight, which is [[AnticlimaxBoss very easy]], but because of the ''timing''. Once you've closed all the other vents, it should be a simple task of using the steam vent to blow him into the oven. But Hermes has a nasty habit of spawning in that vent then immediately moving away, making it a repetitive task of luring him back and trying to turn the steam valve before he flees. It turns what should be a twenty second boss fight into one that can last twenty minutes.

* AnticlimaxBoss: In the first game, Dr. Killjoy's and Horace's, as they can be over in a matter of ''seconds'' if you know what you're doing.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: The plot of ''Ties That Bind'' is basically the same as the first game. Torque dealing with amnesia and his insanity, while on a quest to learn whether or not he murdered his family. The problem is the first game's ending decisively answered that question. So it's possible to play through the series and, bizarrely, learn in the first game that Torque is innocent, then play ''Ties That Bind'' to learn he isn't.

** The sound of a Gorger feeding is known to turn the stomachs of the hardiest players.
** The Creeper's voice would be terrifying even if his dialogue in the game was about fluffy puppies instead of his exploits as an abusive pimp and misogynistic serial killer.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Dr. Killjoy. There's a reason he was brought back for the sequel.

* DemonicSpiders: The Infernas were probably the all around fastest enemies in the game, could soak up a lot of damage, could hem you in by setting the ground on fire, possessed an area of effect attack, and always came in groups (and Jesus Christ, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment they were FAST]]!).

They move extremely fast and are hard to hit, trail fire just by moving so you in by setting the ground on fire, possessed an rapidly run out of movement room, have both a direct and area of effect fire attack, and always came come in groups (and Jesus Christ, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment they were are FAST]]!).

* CompleteMonster:
** Luther Stickwell (a.k.a. "The Creeper") from the first game is a pimp, serial killer, paedophile, homophobe, murderous ghost... honestly, what can you say about a character that bonded three prostitutes to his stomach and turned them into CombatTentacles? And there was that one line: ''"Remember, blood's the '''best''' lubricant!"''
** Copperfield the Slavehunter from ''Ties That Bind'': besides his obsessive hunting of runaway slaves and their innocent ancestors, it's revealed that his hounds are starved before a hunt so that runaways will be horribly mauled or eaten alive when found.
