* Lara and Sam in the 2013 reboot. With Roth as a surrogate father figure and Jonah a surrogate big brother and [[spoiler: Alex a DoggedNiceGuy that Lara didn't even know about]], Lara's subtext-laden RomanticTwoGirlFriendship with Sam doesn't require too much glancing through ShippingGoggles.

It doesn't help that it's noted in game that Lara is more interested in studying than meeting guys

* ThatOneBoss: ** There's [[spoiler: Dr. Willard]]. You have to be extremely quick and focused in getting the various MacGuffin items into their proper areas, or suffer from its highly damaging attacks, one of which is a ''homing'' OneHitKill.

** And how about [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgAAwTIkah8 Grapple Time]], which could be easily mistaken for the main theme of [[Videogame/TombRaiderLegend Legend]]?

** The rattling and moaning of Winston in ''Tomb Raider III''. This troper always shut him in the freezer so he wouldn't scare her. ** The eerie ambient background soundtracks used in the early games can be this - ''especially'' the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9Ah8L5f5kE unbelievably creepy one]] heard prominently in the ''Tomb Raider II'' level "Floating Islands".

** The mummies in ''The Last Revelation'' make unpleasant groans that sound an awful lot [[NauseaFuel like they're vomiting]].

* {{Narm}}: Lara's drowning animation in [=TR III=]. Once the OxygenMeter hits the bottom, she promptly goes into a random flail. Said flail lasts roughly five seconds, give or take. Meaning she had five seconds of air left that apparently was held in reserve simply for a flailing drowning scene. A drama queen to the end. ** It's probably meant to represent what is cheerfully called 'the rigours', which is the agony a person goes through when water first hits the lungs when they drown. This actually does last around five seconds. ** Some of the dialogue. --> "Your perception of good timing is...bad!" ** In the original 1996 game, it was pretty hard to take Natla and her goons seriously when they all have hilariously stereotypical accents. This was downplayed in the remake.

** ''Chronicles'' is universally acclaimed as this.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Larson, specifically the new and improved "sexy" Larson from ''Anniversary''.

* EstrogenBrigade: Larson in ''Anniversary''.

** ''Anniversary'' really plays up the FoeYay with Lara and Larson. * GeniusBonus: The Scion in ''Anniversary'' resembles the [[http://www.antikythera-mechanism.gr/ Antikythera Mechanism]], but with triad look instead of quad. ** The giant stone ball in the "Sanctuary of the Scion" level in ''Anniversary'' resembles [[http://www.naturalhistorymag.com/picks-from-the-past/191353/prehistoric-stone-balls-a-mystery the prehistoric stone balls dotting the Costa Rican jungle]].

** Third ledge above the lava, "Great Pyramid", ''Anniversary''. ** Then there's [[spoiler: Dr. Willard]]. You have to be extremely quick and focused in getting the various MacGuffin items into their proper areas, or suffer from its highly damaging attacks, one of which is a ''homing'' OneHitKill.

** Likewise, ''TR III'' provided us [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9ItrdOmfjQ Puzzle element]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-4RQVuzYQI Something spooky in that jungle]] ** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGdtDLepmx4 Main theme from TR IV]]. Amusingly, it's very often mistaken as the main tune for the whole franchise. ** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41aq7BR_5nY Orchiestrated theme from Angel of Darkness]] anyone?
