Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Dead Space 1

  • For this troper the divider death was frackin' hilarious.
  • In chapter 4, when going to the bridge, a Brutes head burst through a black window at the side, after shooting at it, it will pull away. Directly above the hole in glass is a sign reads: "Visitors! Must sign in at guard house." Looks like someone made the guard pretty angry at newcommers.
  • The intro the hydroponics level includes a massive Scare Chord - to some tomatoes being watered. Fuck you, you smarmy shipboard AI.
  • Killing the first brute really can cause something like this:
Cquote1.svg

Isaac:(Kills brute in two seconds)
Hammond:(Five seconds later) Your weapons can't punch through that things armor! Shoot in the back Isaac!
Player:I just killed that thing!

  • In the waiting room of the Ishimura Clinic in Chapters 2 and 5, one side of the room is in near-total darkness, but shining your flashlight on the wall reveals a shitload of graffiti, including this gem:
Cquote1.svg

Original line: WE ARE SO FUCKED
Later addition: Hey its ok to be fucked

Cquote2.svg

Dead Space: mobile

  • In the Interquel for the iPhone, we get this gem from Tyler in Chapter 4:
Cquote1.svg

Vandal: (Reaches a locked door.)
Tyler: Vandal, that door is on quarantine lock. You have to backtrack about 300 meters, take a right through the utility area, then GET OVER THAT MINE SHAFT AND... (chuckles) Just screwing with you! Try it now, lock's open!

Dead Space: Ignition

Dead Space 2

  • Just take a minute to mash the stomp button for a minute or so. The following Cluster F-Bomb you get from Issac is pretty hilarious.
    • After being jumped by a necromorph or surviving a really frustrating battle, it's also a very good stress reliever.
Cquote1.svg

Isaac: stomp stomp GOD DAMMIT stomp stomp stomp MOTHER stomp FUCKER stomp stomp FUCKING stomp DIE!

Cquote2.svg
  • The ending. Especially considering how the first game ended.
Cquote1.svg

Isaac: sits in the shuttle cockpit, unwinding from the day's events. A look of apprehension flashes across his face, as he recalls the ending from Dead Space 1. Ominous music play, he hesitantly turns his head...
Ellie: [sitting idly at the controls, sees Isaac staring at her] ...What?

Cquote2.svg
  • This little exchange.
Cquote1.svg

Ellie: It looks like the Necromorphs are starting to swarm into the Ishimura, through the Medical Bay. Thankfully, you don't have to go through there.
PA: Unexpected Obstruction ahead. Emergency stop initiated. Welcome to: The Medical Bay.
Isaac: Crap.

Cquote2.svg
  • Hot wiring the drill. Ellie calls out that she thinks she's fixed it and Isaac doesn't get a chance to correct her.
Cquote1.svg

Ellie: I'll try to get it started from up here.
Isaac: (under his breath) Or maybe I just rewire it from down here...
Ellie: What was that? I didn't hear you.
Isaac: Uh, nothing. Nothing.

Cquote2.svg
    • After hotwiring:
Cquote1.svg

Ellie: Hey! I got it!
Isaac: Well, actually, I-
Ellie: Isaac! Hurry up and get on!

Cquote2.svg
  • This little exchange off-screen between Ellie and Stross after Stross has stabbed out Ellie's eye with a screwdriver - she's not happy, to say the least:
Cquote1.svg

Stross: The patient's not cooperating!
Ellie: Fuck you!!

Cquote2.svg
  • The reward you get for beating 'Hardcore' mode. Ever wanted to fight necromorphs while acting out the playtime of a 10 year old boy? Well now you can!
  • When Isaac is first battling the Stalkers:
Cquote1.svg

Daina: Isaac, I-
Isaac: NOT NOW! [Gunfire]

Cquote2.svg
  • When Daina's attempt to capture Isaac get's interrupted by the EarthGov Gunship, keep an eye on the Unitologist goon still trying to hold Isaac in place. His expression when noticing that Isaac has a suit that is space worthy(for a few minutes anyway) while he doesn't is priceless, considering they're getting sucked into space.
    • Unintentional during the same scene. Isaac being held in place by two unarmed man barely taller than him, while he still holds his Plasma Cutter, Pulse Rifle, Javelin Gun, Nail Gun or Line Gun in his hands, is strangely hilarious.
  • All of Isaac's and Ellie's scenes in the mines. From their banter on who really got the giant drill started, to how much fun he's having fighting off waves of Necromorphs ("Oh yeah, fun times"), Ellie apologizing about having to mine through more goo, and then this crowning cherry:
Cquote1.svg

Isaac: So how do we get in there?
Ellie: Straight ahead. We do have a giant drill.
Isaac: You know I'm riding on top of this, right? Ellie? Ellie? Ellie! Ellie!
[cue rumbling and cut to Isaac launching face-first onto the ground]
Isaac: Holy crap that hurt.

Cquote2.svg
  • This earlier exchange, which is worth a chuckle:
Cquote1.svg

Isaac: You're CEC?
Ellie: Heavy equipment pilot Class 4. You?
Isaac: Engineer.
Ellie: Nerd. Figures.

  • In Severed

Gabe: Balls!

  • In Chapter Eleven, a drag tentacle grabs you and pulls you through a hole out into space. As you are pulled, sparks fly everywhere as stone makes contact with your suit. However, you could be wearing the Hacker Suit, which is only a jacket and jeans, and still get sparks flying everywhere. Why? Because Isaac is literally Made of Iron!
  • Though not canon, this Ask Isaac Tumblr blog has no shortage of hilarity.
  • The introduction and pre-fight dialouge to The Battle in the Center of the Mind with Marker-Nicole can be pretty hilarious.
Cquote1.svg

Marker-Nicole: Thank you Issac... now, time to die.
Issac: What?

Cquote2.svg
Cquote1.svg

Issac: But Strauss said we could destroy the Marker!
Marker-Nicole: Not if we consume you first!
Issac: GODDAMMIT I TRUSTED YOU! YOU KNOW WHAT? FUCK YOU! AND FUCK YOUR MARKER!

  • Some fans have thought that when [[spoiler:Gabe got his legs blown off he said goodbye legs when he actually said goodbye Lex
