YMMV: Thief: The Dark Project

  • Fetish Retardant : Given the circumstances of the specific scene, Viktoria's brief nudity in Thief: The Dark Project is anything but sexy.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: No, despite what you might think, the Hand Brotherhood has nothing to do with certain other element-benders.
  • Hell Is That Noise: In The Maw, the chattering, lip smacking, mewling and whining by the... creatures in the level. Completely alien, and extremely unsettling.
  • Most Annoying Sound: The high-pitched chirps of the Craymen can get on the nerves of certain players.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The Keeper instructors in the tutorial
  • Narm: The infamous eye-ripping scene is utterly terrifying. Still, there are a couple of things that could take the impact away a bit, mostly involving the ways Constantine and Viktoria speak after they drop their charades. Not only is the Trickster a ham-and-a-half, but no matter how horrifying a monster he is, it's a little hard to take someone seriously when his aliases include "Honeymaker", "Jacksberry", and "Woodsie" Lord. The two of them refer to Garret as "Manfool", and have a rather odd syntax on top of it all, pluralizing words that honestly don't "needs" it.
  • One-Scene Wonder:
    • The Hand Brotherhood was a pretty popular mini faction among the series' fandom, even though they have only appeared in one mission based on their faction. The only other mission they appeared in was a few minor cameos in "The Lost City".
    • Raoul is one of the fan favourites among one-off side characters.
  • The Woobie: In Thief Gold, Raoul is a nice fellow who lost his livelihood and accomodation due to corrupt schemers in the opera house's management, lady Valerius included. Given how well he's taking his predicament, he's quite the Iron Woobie. His mild insanity probably helps...
