* ViolationOfCommonSense: [[spoiler: Make a zombie have low mood and high humanity, shoot it in the legs, then give it a loaded handgun. Surprisingly, this does not result in a game over!]]
** [[spoiler: And this is show to be a bad idea as well, if you get the special reaction from the empty handgun, the zombie TRIES TO SHOOT YOU!]]
** Want to get some good reactions? Piss off the zombie first so it gets a certain reaction, then make it happy again.
** Zombies sometimes do this in universe, trying to eat things that clearly should not. With the fan, it results in the zombie losing its jaw even if you never did anything to damage it

* PlayerPunch: At one point in the game a zombie gets killed without player input. Zombies need to learn things and only that specific zombie remembers it. This can upset players for various reasons. Another example is having to do the kill yourself in order to have the reactions noted.

* UndeathlyPallor: Zombies are portrayed as having decidedly bluish skins.

* {{Irony}}: [[spoiler: The military general who was allowing the scientist to work in the lab finds the notes the scientist was collecting about the previous owners of the lab, and then uses science in general as a scapegoat for all their problems, and, basically, praises the military for not being that dumb. After he ends up dead, the scientist finds evidence that points at the ''opposite'' view, where the previous scientist eventually tried to prevent the outbreak by destroying the notes on the virus, and the military kills her, on orders and attempts to brute force the situation back to stable.]]
