* SuddenlyVoiced: Not for Hornet herself (as she was voiced in the original) but for the games: promotional material have noted that Hornet's ability to speak is a contrast to the previous game's SilentProtagonist, the Knight, and promotional materials for the game showcase her participating in conversations rather than simply listening (complete with different icons in the text box to show who's speaking)



* TheFaceless: Hornet's captors at the beginning of the game, and some later enemies, have their entire face covered with only a gold symbol instead of visible eyes or mouth.
