* [[spoiler:StuffBlowingUp: Jack emptied the Sarcophagus of its occupant and crammed it full of C4, leaving a seconds-short timer to trigger the explosion upon its opening. [=LaCroix=] and/or the player character meet their end that way in the Anarch, Independent and [=LaCroix=] endings.]]
* YourSoulIsMine: The main appeal of opening it, should the "elder vampire" hypothesis prove true: their blood and then their soul could be drained through the practice of Diablerie, thereby granting the perpetrator their power. Of course, that is assuming that the elder doesn't awaken first...
** Bruno Giovanni believes in a different version of this plan: he is convinced that the Sarcophagus contains an untold number of souls, an incredibly useful resource for his family's [[{{Necromancer}} necromantic]] rituals.

* PropheciesAreAlwaysRight: Shortly after you place the Bad Luck Charm in the target's locker, said target promptly appears and gets into an argument that ends with you being forced to kill him - exactly as Ox intended.
** OffTheRails: If you're a Malkavian or a Ventrue, you can derail this plan by mind-controlling the target into leaving as soon as he finds you. Nosferatu can also avoid violence by scaring him away. Or you can just leave the building he's in. [[DevelopersForesight If you go back to Mr. Ox at this point, his response to the quest will be different, and a little disappointed.]]



* AnAxeToGrind[=/=]AxCrazy: The killer committed several murders with an axe in the hotel, including his family. When the PC explores the haunted hotel, the killer's ghost can be spotted several times - and he still has the axe.

** Once you know the plot, and by paying attention to when the emails are sent, it is possible to deduce that [[spoiler:they are talking about Lacroix's plan to comfort his power. On one side, you have Lacroix himself as black king, with Ming Xiao, his secret ally, as black queen, and Grout, a disposable underling, as black bishop. The other side is made up of Lacroix's disparate enemies: Nines as white king, Bach as white bishop and the Fledgling as a white pawn. Note that a pawn can be promoted if they reach the other side of the board, reflecting the player character's own FromNobodyToNightmare character arc.]]

A mysterious shopkeeper in Chinatown, peddling curiosities and trinkets- most of which seem to have very morbid origins and purposes in mind. He enlists your help - first in retrieving a pair of "envious eyes" from the corpse of a thief, then in delivering a Bad Luck Charm to a target's locker.

* TheUnfought: [[spoiler:The whole haunted hotel sequence seems to build up tension which would culminate in a boss fight against the spectral axe killer... and then you find the top room, take the amulet, and leave. The end. You don't even get to see how the Voreman sisters get rid of the violent ghost if you give the amulet to Theresa, only a quick line regarding exorcism.]]

* OneWingedAngel: As soon as the battle begins he sheds his puny human form and takes his Warform. This also is very typical for Rokea, who prefer their Warforms outside of absolute necessity. [[spoiler:In fact, given that he's first encountered in a Masquerade zone, as opposed to Elysium, it's very possible to just knife him in his puny human form if you figure out who he is early enough]].
* PsychoForHire: He kills people for money, and pretending you want to hire him is part of how you lure him out. [[spoiler:His dialogues imply he actually took a contract on ''you'', and that he was luring ''you'' out.]]

Johansen, unaware of the supernatural, speculates that the references to the improbable lifespan might simply have been born out of confusion between homonyms, and that Messerach may have indeed drank the blood of his enemies for the sake of intimidation, or out of an attempt to treat [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porphyria porphyria]], an actual real life condition that might have inspired the myth of vampires. [[spoiler:He turns out to be exactly right on at least one point: Messerach is a plain old mummy, as seen in the ending.]]
