** '''Lara/Sam.''' It is ''overwhelmingly'' the most popular ship in the fandom, to the point that they're basically treated as the OfficialCouple. However even those who ''don't'' view them this way are still upset that [[PutOnABus Sam and their whole relationship]] were left out of the sequel.

* JustForFun/XMeetsY: Described as ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' meets ''VideoGame/FarCry3''. The original game was ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' meets Franchise/IndianaJones. Then ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' reinvented itself with extra parkour and a healthy bit of ''Tomb Raider'''s platforming. ''Uncharted'' pops up a few years later, takes ''that'', and adds in [[VideoGame/GearsOfWar cover shooting]] and the [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil4 readying your gun to fire in third-person perspective]]. Now we've got 2013 ''Tomb Raider'', which is an adequate summary of how the genre has evolved in the last seventeen years.

** Also near the start Reyes attempts to free Lara from a Beartrap via shooting it, even though all that would do is risk hurting Lara.

* CriticalResearchFailure: At the start of the game, Lara winds up impaled on a piece of rebar and immediately pulls it out. ''Do not do this in real life.'' You'll begin to lose way more blood and possibly do horrible amounts of internal damage.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Some of the fanbase considers Lara to have been too eager to attack the Solarii after her first human kill, indicating that she is no better than the Mooks in taking human life. Even though this was {{Hand Wave}}d during a conversation between Lara and Roth shortly afterwards when [[ItGetsEasier Lara mentioned how easy it was]], Lara never comments on this again. Mathias even [[WhatTheHellHero calls her out on the high bodycount, claiming that she is not a hero.]] Lara does not respond to this, possibly as [[SociopathicHero an affirmation that he is right.]] Then again, she does plead with the Solarii to stop several times and asks why they're doing this, so her kills are self-defense as opposed to the Solarii actively trying to murder her.
** Once Lara acquires [[spoiler: the grenade launcher]] she becomes far more aggressive, and when [[spoiler: the Oni summons its minions at the Chasm Shrine]] Lara has reached full BringIt mode.

* FromNobodyToNightmare: TheGame.
* GoddamnBats: [[StuffBlowingUp Sappers]]. Their molotov cocktails force you to keep moving from cover to cover, which besides exposing you to enemy fire, makes it ''very'' challenging to draw a bead on a target since you're constantly having to reposition to not get blasted. You have to be able to aim and shoot very quickly, (god help you if all you have is the bow and its very low rate of fire) and it certainly doesn't help that they have arms like Major League pitchers and almost perfect aim. Sappers will quickly make gunfights ''insanely'' frustrating, especially if there's more than one of them. [[FromBadToWorse They get worse]] when you start running into the ones that carry [[UpToEleven dynamite]], which graduate into outright DemonicSpiders.
** Their saving grace is if you can wound them when they attempt to throw, they'll fumble [[HoistByHisOwnPetard and blow themselves up]]. There's even an achievement for it if you can cause a sapper to take out himself and at least one other mook with a stick of dynamite.

* JerkassWoobie: Reyes would count due to her {{Jerkass}} attitude towards Lara could be result of not just [[spoiler: Roth's death]] and [[spoiler: Roth's favoritism towards Lara then her as Reyes was in a relationship with him]], but also because of being [[MamaBear estranged from her 14-year-old daughter]] and the [[FallenHero loss of her job as a police officer]]. [[spoiler: Roth's death]] only adds salt on the wound to Reyes' stress and eventually causes her to vent out her frustration of the culmination of her personal problems towards Lara throughout the game.



* {{Squick}}: Some of the death scenes when a quicktime event is failed can be very gruesome. For instance, there is one where Lara gets shot through the head from the chin up, which leaves her with a giant hole in her forehead and an eye popped out of its socket.

* TheWoobie: One of the reasons that the game's dark tone works so well is that it's almost impossible to not want to hug Lara by the end of it. Or after her first kill.
** IronWoobie: But she doesn't back down once she's finally had enough and begins to fight back in-story.

* ThatOneLevel: The river rapids and the immediately following parachute QTE. CameraScrew makes it ''incredibly'' hard to tell where the safe paths through the obstructions are, combined with controls (at least with mouse and keyboard on the PC) that aren't particularly responsive. Furthermore, the console versions don't hint that you can use ''both'' analog sticks to controls Lara's movements (right stick for fine-tuned adjustments, left for big movements). [[SarcasmMode Have fun seeing]] [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice Lara die]] [[NightmareFuel over and over again]].
