* For Hero players, during the fight with Augustine on the island, when some D.U.P. soldiers storm the field after Augustine briefly flees. Almost no matter what you do, Delsin's attacks will dust whoever he hits with them in much the same way the Evil versions of his Smoke attacks would. It's a good, if horrifying, look at exactly how much Delsin is holding back under normal circumstances. Furthermore, if you somehow manage to knock down some of the soldiers and try to simply incapacitate them? NonstandardGameOver - Mission Failed. That's right - you aren't even ALLOWED to be a good guy for this one. [[UnstoppableRage Mr. Rowe is pissed,]] and when Mr. Rowe is pissed, [[KillEmAll no-one gets out alive.]]

** For that matter, take a good look at Delsin's face when performing the Orbital Drop during this battle. Normally, he has a cocky smirk. But in this battle only, Delsin is ''[[UnstoppableRage utterly furious]]'' just before he dives down.

Added DiffLines:

** Then there's the horrifying revelation that [[spoiler: TheExtremistWasRight or at least the fact the US military had kill on sight orders for all Conduits. The DUP may actually be the lesser evil--that's still evil.]]


* Augustine's rampant sadism is absolutely ''chilling.''

** It goes right into LackOfEmpathy...she doesn't really seem to comprehend just how many people she's hurting in her mad quest to keep everyone safe.

* The DUP in general. You think our government is scary? Imagine a government agency who is basically given a carte blanche to torture a small town of people for information, can quarantine an entire city for three escape criminals, and who can arrest anyone without due process to be taken away for experiments that The Third Reich would be envious of. Combine that with the added horror of them having superpowers that they are perfectly willing to use against innocent people. And the best part is, thanks to the first game and the comics they are not the only government agency that committed these crimes against humanity.

** Delsin's laugh of joy from the newfound power doesn't help, evil karma or not. Another creepy laugh of joy occurs after he got shot by a Drug Dealer and finds out he has a fast regenerating power.

* The aftermath of Augustines' visit. People having concrete going through them, their organs, and even '''skulls'''. They will die, unless somebody gets the stuff out. Something that cannot be done with surgery. And even if it was removed, the long term damage is still horrifying.

Added DiffLines:

***And don't forget the grossly unequal power dynamic of a white military leader torturing an entire tribe of Native Americans on their own reservation, which is supposed to be sovereign territory. Whatever she is allowed to do normally, Augustine shouldn't be able to exercise the same powers on Indian land.

Added DiffLines:

** Evil Delsin's Smoke powers kill people by essentially incinerating them from the inside out, leaving only ash and smoke, while Evil Delsin's Neon powers kill people by sending energy ''into'' them, causing them to ''boil'' internally until they pop like water balloons.


* The Paper Trail DLC ''definitely'' has it's moments - including one video you find on an extremist website that shows [[spoiler:a man being tied inside a garbage bag and beaten to death as he pleads for his life]]. Oh, and that's done with real actors, not video game characters made of pixels. ''Jesus.''

Added DiffLines:

** A guy in red overalls and a happy face for a head taking a chainsaw to a D.U.P. soldier suspended from the ceiling.

Added DiffLines:

* Evil Delsin. He might not be as powerful as Cole, but his {{power copying}} ability has practically unlimited potential, and his attacks can [[DisintegratorRay vaporize]] people, something that Cole's attacks never did.

** The website itself is horrific, detailing how the site's users have murdered at least eight (suspected) Conduits that way and left their bodies in garbage bags like "trash ready to be burned".
