* SuddenlyVoiced: In their respective games, neither Goggles, Gordon, nor Mjiolnir 54 ever talk, but here they all do. Justified with Gordon, being based on Ross Scott's caricature in ''WebVideo/FreemansMind''; Subverted with Durandal who normally communicates through text, but uses speakers in a text-to-speech-like voice due to not using terminals in most of the story.

* RippleEffectProofMemory: [[spoiler: At the end, Robert Lutece reminds Booker and Elizabeth that their memories will still be intact despite history being changed. They don't mind.]]

Added DiffLines:

* IndustrializedEvil: [[spoiler: An alternate timeline where SHODAN controlled the Combine reveals that she'd exploited Elizabeth's power by enhancing soldiers and machines with them, the former of which were [[PortalCut amputated in various spots]] to do so.]]


* [[spoiler: TheAlibi: While the ''Von Braun'' returns to Earth, Goggles asks Marie Delacroix to not mention this time travel story to his superiors, and instead say that nothing happened after he beat the original version of SHODAN. With some editing to his video footage, it works.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The [[spoiler: Sea of Doors]] has a whole barrage of Shout-Outs stitched together from different time periods and locations meant to reinforce [[spoiler: Elizabeth's "constants and variables" theory]], including an appearance from [[Film/TheRing Samara Morgan]], a peek at the [[VideoGame/{{Myst}} Stoneship Age]], and the voices of [[VideoGame/PortalTwo Wheatley]], [[VideoGame/{{Bioshock}} Andrew Ryan]], and [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 Dr. Breen]] all forming one conversation in sequence.

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: [[spoiler: In the Sea of Doors, one of the things Goggles sees behind several doors is the Hacker removing SHODAN's [[MoralityChip ethical constraints]] before the first ''System Shock'' game.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut





* FixFic: To [[VideoGame/BioshockInfinite Bioshock Infinite's]] GainaxEnding.



* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Natch, being a time travel story. It's even the title of the chapter where Booker, Elizabeth and Fred go back to Finkton prematurely, and rescue Chen Lin just before Fink can kill him all over again.
* ShoutOut

* AggressiveNegotiations: Played with when Goggles and his teammates all point their weapons at Comstock and interrogate him before [[spoiler: Booker could throttle him like in ''Infinite'']]. [[spoiler: Except they don't kill him; instead, Archangel!SHODAN interrupts, embracing Comstock while telling him all his visions were false, then [[NeckSnap snapping his neck]] and [[SymbolicBaptism dunking his head into the baptism dish]].]]
