While talking to Pritchard at Sarif Industries, one of the offhand comments he'll make during the conversation is "Jensen, I know your body's been going through a lot of changes lately, but you didn't become a woman. Stay out of the ladies restroom." The unexpectedness of it was a real treat.
It's a Shout-Out to the first game. When you first visited the UNATCO HQ, you could go into the woman's restrooms, where a woman using it would chide you for being in there. Manderley would later chew you out for being in there during the first debriefing.
Even made more funny when you were sneaking into the Lady's Restroom to listen in on their chat only to then get berated with that comment.
It's hilarious when used in context. The lady outside your apartment who scorns you for having augs? Cold cock her.
If you perform a non-lethal double takedown behind two enemies, Jensen could end up kicking one of them in the back of the knee and quickly grabbing the second person and positioning them. The first person will stand back up and take a swing at Jensen, but ends up knocking out the second person. Then Jensen finishes the first person off with a few body shots and a hard throw to the floor.
Equally hilarious is the variant Adam does when he's facing someone. No special moves, he just hauls off and decks them.
Another one, hilarious in its brutal simplicity compared with other, more complex ones, is that Jensen just grabs the first target and headbutts him/her, then turns, grabs the second one, and headbutts him/her, and walks on.
Several of the two-person non-lethal takedowns start by your targets attacking Jensen first and him expertly countering their assaults. However, since you can do it on any two people, you're just as likely to counter two hardened security officers as street prostitutes.
You could perform feats of Predator-like badassery just by generally cloaking up and then performing a takedown or sometime the multiple takedown. Its downright hilarious to see yet another guy look around for you, unsure where you are, and performing yet another takedown, while you are uncloaking in the process. It might be highly energy consuming but it's worth it.
The ultimate example of Jensen's epic-level face punching prowess is that, during the boss battle with Namir, with the right timing the player can trigger a takedown and kill him with a single punch to the jaw.
Omega Ranch is a secret facility of secret facilities. It's patrolled regularly by guards, robots, the best electronic security that you can get...and they still get spammed by Nigerian Scam emails.
Possibly due to how the security team keeps downloading animal porn and putting it on one of the scientists computers to mess with him.
After you hack into Pritchard's computer, you will see his email regarding to his rejected drama script from Picus TV. The producer doesn't like his script about a super hacker who saves the world via desktop (like himself) and suggests that characters such as vigilante ex-cops who fight crime while trying to maintain their morals (like Jensen) are more popular. No wonder why he doesn't like Jensen that much.
In the Picus Sub-Basement, one employee complains via email that the partially holographic statue of the MJ-12 logo out front looks like something out of a Bond movie and is a waste of money. Another employee simply retorts that "It looks cool."
Adam Jensen: Something, something, Death and taxes. Confucius.
Anonymous X: What? Wait, that- That's not it at all! That's not even close!
Adam Jensen: Does it matter?
Anonymous X: Of course it matters! Otherwise, how am I supposed to know you're- You were supposed to say 'death and life have their determined appointments'! Then I say 'riches and honor depend upon heaven'!
Adam Jensen: Okay. 'Death and life have their determined appointments'.
Anonymous X: Riches and hon- Oh nevermind! You ruined the whole thing!
The best thing about Anonymous X is his #Chan hat.
As soon as Malik first says the name "Anonymous X" she immediately follows with "I know, I know..." as if saying "Yes, that Anonymous".
The real kicker is the way Jensen says the "Something, something" line. Which is to say that he delivers it with his usual dead-serious Guttural Growler tone.
Jensen: Nice hat. I'm here for Evelyn's autopsy report.
Anonymous X: What? Are you mad?!
Jensen: No, just impatient.
The capstone to the entire thing, though, is to pay off Anonymous X when he asks for his money, and then knock him out and take your cash back. There's no real reason to do this (you can just refuse to pay him and walk away over his protests) except because you can. Hell, it's arguably just as entertaining to refuse to pay.
Jensen: Word to the wise. If you're going to extort money from someone, don't wait until after you've given them what they want.
Finding a "Final Fantasy XXVII" poster in Pritchard's office and the Omega Ranch was a nice bit of self-referential humor from Square Enix.
Amusingly in Omega Ranch the posters are in the barracks room of some soldier; that guy must be a serious geek when he isn't guarding a top secret facility for an evil conspiracy.
After Pritchard relays Jensen a message from Zeke Sanders, Jensen takes the opportunity to correct Pritchard's pronunciation of the word "cholo" in the most condescending tone possible.
Gang member: Rest in peace, Big Rizzle.
Jensen: (completely uninterested) Yeah, rip.
In a brilliant case of The Dev Team Thinks of Everything, you might feel so inclined to break into all the officers at Sarif HQ to steal anything you can, especially when you get asked to investigate some offices. Well do that, then when you revisit the building later on, be sure to check your office e-mails. You discover that there has been an office bandit' going around stealing everything, with wild accusations flying around. You get asked to investigate but of course you find no leads.
Overhearing the argument between Mei and her manager at the Hung Hua Hotel will get you this:
Mei: Tell your customers to get augmentations themselves and go fuck themselves!
At the Omega Ranch, you can read elaborately-worded emails sent by an angry scientist complaining that someone keeps putting animal porn on his computer. He requests security help him catch the perpetrator. When you get further inside the Ranch, however, it becomes apparent that the security guards are the ones who keep pranking him. They also did something with his stapler.
One of the emails you read on the Omega Ranch is from the office administrator, who notes that people have been using equipment as benches due to a lack of chairs. After a long winded explanation of how the tensile strength is not enough to support a human's weight, he ends "In short, stop breaking shit with your fat asses. XOXOXO, The Management."
Anyone you end up bribing or otherwise paying money to can be immediately cold-cocked in the face to get your money back. You can even bypass the entire conversation/sidequest with Brian Tindell by simply rolling up to him while he's sitting there and whalloping him in the nose, then taking the recording from him.
Take down the two drug dealers before you talk to him, then agree to help him. When Brian tells Adam the names of the drug dealers, Adam's response is along the lines of: "Wait, those guys? Yeah, they're actually out of the picture. They'd... already stepped on the wrong toes."
When Tong contacts you directly though your personal communications link:
Tong in general is hilarious when he's playing dumb with Jensen...
Jensen: I'm looking for a man named Arie van Bruggen.
Tong: Never heard of him. What he do? Steal your girl? Owe you money?
Jensen: Vasili Sevchenko.
Tong: Never touch the stuff.
Windmill's apartment in Hengsha has a bunch of post-it notes stuck to his workstation. Several of them have girls' phone numbers on them along with doodles of the Forever Alone guy.
Everyone can get Jensen's frequency, from random hackers to crimelords. And he's always surprised.
In the Picus sub-basement you can find an email regarding their plans to discredit someone capable of exposing Taggart's ties to Purity First by forging and leaking an incriminating video. Said e-mail asks the recipient for input as to what the video will contain: "home porno or racist drug-induced violent episode?"
When in the FEMA internment camp you can find a guard with the key code for his quarters in his pocket. You will also find a note from the IT guy announcing that after all the times that guy's forgotten his code, he's getting it written down so the guy will stop pestering him. No matter how many security protocols it breaks.
Failing the dialogue with Wayne Haas in the Police Department gives you a two-way snark exchange between Jensen and his boss.
Jensen: Hey, uh, boss. How badly do you want that report?
Sarif: If you're considering multiple homicides to get it, I suggest you back off and look for a less, uh... conspicious way in. From outside the building.
