[[AC: In General]]
* DualWielding. To compensate for the fact that two people are playing, the game pumps up the difficulty for two player. Grabbing both guns and going GunsAkimbo in the Arcade solo and finishing the game? Brilliance.
* If you fulfill a particular task that lasts throughout the game (saving every civilian in ''1'' and ''2'', rescuing your partner successfully every time in ''III'', getting a A or higher in every chapter in ''4''), the game treats you to a bonus room full of extra lives and point-bonus items right before the FinalBoss.

[[AC: The House of the Dead]]
* Ladies and gentlemen, introducing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCWpLNqMv-E The Magician's Theme]], arguably THE single most pulse-poundingly HotBlooded and ferocious boss-fight music ever composed for a RailShooter game.
* Getting knocked nearly off the rooftop by Hanged Man and finishing him while dangling one-handed from the ledge was and still is a pretty cool moment.
* The fact that not only was [[DamselInDistress Sophie]] the only person on the DBR research staff that called for outside help from the AMS right away when zombies started showing up, but also managed to [[HopeSpot almost make it safety]] before Rogan and G even showed up is very impressive, considering that she is just [[ActionSurvivor an unarmed researcher]]. The existence of Lisa, the daughter of her and Thomas, in ''III'' confirms that yes, she survived and the good ending is canon. It is not hard to see where Lisa got her ActionGirl side from.

[[AC: The House of the Dead II]]
* Playing ''House of the Dead 2'' for the first time and [[spoiler:reaching the Stage 5 boss, provided that you played ''House of the Dead 1'' in its entirety beforehand]].
** [[spoiler:Even better once you realize that his lines aren't as {{Narm}}-filled as the dialogue for the other characters.]]
--> '''[[spoiler: The Magician]]''': I've been waiting for this time to come. You have no future: either I get you or the Emperor will. [[BadassBoast Either way, your fate is in OUR hands!]]
*** Or, in the case of a two-player game:
--> '''[[spoiler: The Magician]]''': I've been waiting for this time to come. There is no future for you people: either I get you or the Emperor will. [[TemptingFate Either way, there is NOTHING you people can do!]]

[[AC: The House of the Dead III]]
* Lisa's BondOneLiner when [[ImplacableMan Dea]][[RecurringBoss th]] is finally destroyed.
--> "When a lady says 'no', ''she means it!''"
* After defeating the FinalBoss, [[spoiler:[[BigBad Dr. Curien]]]]:
--> '''Daniel:''' "[[spoiler:[[YouAreNotMyFather You're not my father!]]]]" ''(BANG)''

[[AC: The House of the Dead 4]]
* Goldman took acting lessons. His [[MotiveRant Motive Rants]] at the beginning of each chapter are genuinely chilling.
* The G ending, naturally obtained only by means of performing well throughout the game.
--> '''G:''' "[[spoiler:James]], it's not over yet. [[BadassBoast We'll fight this]] [[CallForward back to the source.]] [[spoiler:[[DueToTheDead It's time for you to rest now]], [[HeroicSacrifice James]]]]."
