YMMV / Lucius

  • Black Comedy: In spades!
    • The over-the-top, karmic deaths
    • The household's nonchalance regarding the obviously troubled child in their midst
    • The Antichrist doing chores around the house, up to and including collecting his mother's used panties
  • Evil Is Cool: It is. It just is. Telekinesis, Mind Control and oh so many more deliciously evil powers. What more can you want?!
  • Narm: Isaac speaking. Sure, he's an Antichrist figure equal in power to Lucius, but it's tough to take him seriously with a generic demon-filtered voice emanating from a stiff, flapping mouth.
    • "The rest of you will join us beneath the bedrock of justice!"
  • Spiritual Adaptation: The setup is suspiciously similar to The Omen, with the juvenile, black haired antichrist murdering people.
  • Uncanny Valley: This is one of the few cases where limited animation works. Lucius seldom has anything but a blank expression on his face and it's creepy.
  • What an Idiot: The game has the eponymous character taking control of his "father" Charles into killing his mother, Nancy, with a nail gun. At the same time, McGuffin and another police officer are present at the scene.
    You'd Expect: that he puts two and two together that Lucius is responsible for taking control of his "father" and killing his mother and has him locked up. Happy ending, indeed.
    Instead: he comes to a conclusion that Charles is responsible for the murder, and tries to lead chase to him. During that time, he has the other police officer watch over Lucius which he does murder. For him, he assumes the worse after this.
