Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Awesome but Practical: Dan's fully-upgraded assault rifle, which has an LMG's ammo capacity and firepower, an SMG's rate of fire, and a lot of shock bursts.
  • Cry for the Devil: It's kinda hard not to feel sorry for the Amada AI when you realize all he wanted was a family, and what turned him into what he is now.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Cain is easily among the most popular characters of the game going by online comments.
  • Genius Bonus: Gun-savvy people who read the data files can trace the inspirations behind the weapons:
    • As an example, Faye's R93 sniper rifle looks like a Barret M82, but has the design history of the Blaser R93.
    • The Akagi 74 is essentially the AK-74 with a longer barrel and carrying handle.
    • When fully upgraded, Dan's assault rifle is essentially an LMG; this makes sense when one realizes that it's based off the HK416, which formed the basis of the USMC's M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle: an LMG in assault rifle body.
  • Porting Disaster: Averted. The PC port plays well, flows smoothly, graphics look as good as the 360/PS3 (with an Nvidia GTX460), and most importantly, QTE prompts can be set to display as either 360 gamepad or keyboard.
  • Straw Man Has a Point: It seems unfair to issue termination orders for all Hollow Children, but Yoshiki demonstrates that they can be overidden at any time, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is a Hollow Child. A Hollow Child is the ultimate Manchurian Agent, able to infiltrate anywhere.
  • Uncanny Valley: Dan's face. Every other character has a face that wouldn't make you look twice if you passed them by on the street, while Dan's facial features have an unsettling resemblance to Final Fantasy characters, rather than real humans.
