!!The game:
* [[BannedInChina Banned In Singapore]]
* {{Blooper}}: During the opening stage of ''The Darkness II'', Jackie's right leg gets torn up quite badly in a mob ambush, and one of his men must drag him away while Jackie fends of attackers with a pistol. Shortly after, the situation becomes dire enough that Jackie must unleash the Darkness to survive, and the Darkness' HealingFactor completely restores his leg, though he is missing his right shoe with [[ClothingDamage the pants on that side still all torn up]]. In a later scene in the level, Jackie is knocked on his back and his legs flail up in front of the camera before he lands. In that shot, his pants and shoe are restored, though at no point by then would he have an opportunity to get fresh cloths.
* HeyItsThatVoice: MikePatton as the Darkness, Kirk Acevedo as Jackie, Lauren Ambrose as Jenny, Creator/DwightSchultz as Uncle Paulie and a who's-who of professional voice actors.
** In the sequel, Jackie is voiced by Creator/BrianBloom.
** And Victor by [[RegularShow Bill Salyers]]!
** The Darkness is once again voiced by {{Mike Patton}}, and let's just say this isn't the first time Rick Pasqualone voiced a [[VideoGame/MafiaII mafioso whose name started with "V"]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The Angelus was originally planned to make an appearance in the first game, but was cut from the final release. It is frequently mentioned in the sequel [[spoiler:and is revealed to be Jenny in the ending]].
!!The band:
* TheOtherDarrin: Frankie was replaced in 2005 by Richie Edwards ([[NamesTheSame Not]] [[Music/ManicStreetPreachers that one]]). He returned with the 2012 reformation.
