* DevelopersForesight: It's possible to get the Glowing Key from Red's quarters without killing him. If you do so, then some of Nemesis' dialogue will change accordingly.

* LoadBearingBoss: After you defeat Nemesis, his lair begins to self-destruct, catching on fire, and crumbling into rubble. A fitting and perhaps honorable coincidence is that while you are escaping his lair's self-destruction, "The Sunken Cathedral" by Claude Debussy plays in the background (though it was played before confronting Nemesis), given that his lair is on an island. Ronan's tower also catches on fire if you kill him.
