These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Nightmare Fuel: The last updated chapter of Dark Renegade dedicates around a screen of space to a claustrophobic description of darkness enveloping Alex's body slowly and uncontrollably.
Omniscient Morality License: To a degree, Alex might have this, in that he is partially Railroading the stories in order to fit most of what they usually are, while "fixing" what he thinks could be changed. He does recognize some of this, like how performing a Heroic Sacrifice against Lavos affected his friends, but only after the fact. This is why he isn't prepared for all of that control to be taken away from him forcibly in the fourth story, most notably his heart unlocking from Joumae's interference, while Jak and Daxter are prepared to fight him more or less, having been essentially going with the flow for their entire franchise.
