* BigBad: Bob Page acts as the behind-the-scenes villain of the game, just like in ''Human Revolution''. Possibly he will be revealed to be the BiggerBad in a sequel installment, but for now he appears to be the one responsible for the [[spoiler:Zaaphire Biotech]] conspiracy.

Added DiffLines:

* AbortedArc: Was originally intended as the first episode in an episodic series. However, the game performed poorly and no additional entries were ever released. Ben Saxon is briefly mentioned in a Juggernaut Collective text log in ''Mankind Divided'', and supporting character Alex Vega plays a prominent role in that game.

Added DiffLines:

* IncrediblyDurableEnemies: Compared to ''Human Revolution'' (or ''Mankind Divided'', for that matter). Even the basic Mooks take several pistol shots to the torso to kill, compared to just a couple in the mainline games. This is likely a holdover from the mobile version's pay-to-win weapon upgrade system.


* BroadStrokes: Some liberties are taken with the game's depiction of Ben's defection from the Tyrants from ''[[Literature/DeusExIcarusEffect Icarus Effect]]''. In the game, it's implied to happen right after the Kontarsky assassination in Moscow, while in the novel it takes place much later. Also, in the novel Namir confronts Ben in the ops room and Ben has to fight past him and the rest of the Tyrants to reach the cargo hold and escape. In the game, however, Ben remains undetected and instead confronts Namir in the cargo hold before escaping immediately without a fight. These alterations were likely done to preserve story and gameplay pacing.

* EliteMooks: [[spoiler: Belltower Spec Ops troopers appear as the opposition in the final section of the game. These include Belltower's augmented EliteMooks, the Sneakers and Ogres. Even the regular Belltower Spec Ops are noticeably tougher than the gangbangers and security guards you've been dealing with previously, having more health and being equipped with combat rifles.]]


Added DiffLines:

* HeavilyArmoredMook: [[spoiler: You'll face a few Belltower Ogres in the game's last level. They can soak almost a hundred rounds of combat rifle fire to the torso, but can be taken out immediately with a melee takedown as long as they're not aware of you.]]


* SequelHook: At the end of the game, [[spoiler:Ben Saxon, Alex Vega, and Anna Kelso all head off to Australia to uncover the truth about the Riezene conspiracy and Zaaphire Biotech. Meanwhile, Jaron Namir and Sam Duarte assure Bob Page that they will hunt Saxon down and kill him. The screen then flashes: [[CliffHanger TO BE CONTINUED]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* EverythingFades: Or at least people you've taken down does it - even if you performed a non-lethal takedown on them! This even allows to kill or disable a guard within a camera's range with the right timing, as he will have disappeared by the time the camera turns back in that direction.

Added DiffLines:

* InvulnerableKnuckles: If he performs a non-lethal takedown to a single enemy from the front, Ben will always knock him out with a punch from his flesh-and-bones hand, even if he's heavily armored.


* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:It's implied a sequel is going to be made, but Jaron Namir and Sam Duarte get off scott-free. Subverted in the case of Namir, since you can kill him in ''Human Revolution'']].

* TheConspiracy: [[spoiler:The Illuminati is creating a shortage of the Neuropozyne drug for augmentations and a competitor corporation, Zaaphire Biotech, is rolling out a new product soon called Riezene, which claims to do the same thing. However, the Illuminati (through their PrivateMilitaryContractor Belltower and their shipping front company XNG) is flooding the slums of Panama City with Riezene to test the drug and disposing the bodies of anyone who dies from it. Someone in the World Health Organization is in on it and an inspector who tries to publish the truth is assassinated right in front of Saxon's very eyes. At the end of the game, the protagonists fly off to Australia to find out exactly why and if there's more to it.]]


* BigBad: Jaron Namir

to:

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:In ''Icarus Effect'', Sam Duarte, Ben Saxon's friend at Belltower, was described being gunned down by a drone in the Australian outback. He got better, mainly because the Illuminati nursed him back to health, gave him new augmentations, and brainwashed him (or at least we think) into joining the Tyrants.]]

* CliffHanger: The game ends on one, as it was intended to be released episodically. As there has been no word from the developer in over a year regarding a part 2, and given the rather sketchy history of episodic gaming (especially for First Person Shooters), it doesn't seem like there's going to be a resolution any time soon.
* CoolestClubEver: Nightshades club in Panama.

soon, but with the recent reveal of the Dawn Engine that Square Enix says new ''Deus Ex'' games will run on and a press release from the developers saying that they are working on "Deus Ex Universe", which will include upcoming console games, books and comics, and mobile spin-offs, perhaps there will be news in the near future.
* CoDragons: Both Jaron Namir and [[spoiler:Sam Duarte]] are this to Bob Page, especially demonstrated when [[spoiler:they both debrief him at the end of the game]].
