The Darkness, while being mostly manifested as a form of possession, projects through the ghost of Barbara Jagger. Another ghostly entity, operating against "The Dark", is a former poet gone by the name of Thomas Zane who manifests as a ball of light during the Tutorial Chapter, and later on in the shape of a humanoid heavy diving suit during the late game.

Several minor jumpscares occur throughout combat and exploration. Only one major jumpscare happens in the pre-rendered cutscenes where the ghost of Barbara Jagger spontaneously teleports close to the frame and stares directly towards the player.

During one of the very first chapters; Alan Wake fails to control his car and steers off the road into a canyon below. The player may also crash their car intentionally during segments allowing them to take direct control of a vehicle.

Several Police Helicopters are taken down by more physical manifestations of "The Darkness". The protagonist does ride one of the aforementioned helicopters but is not present during the crash.

Alan's wife Alice is freed from the Darkness after Alan sacrifices himself to finish writing the story. The fate of Alice is not mentioned in any epilogue besides a notion of her being a widow two years later during the events of "American Nightmare" while promoting her new movie "Sunrise".

Alan is prone to both Insomnia and alcohol fueled behavior issues which set a turbulence to his marriage with Alice. These behaviors are indicated in the Alan Wake DLC "The Signal". Alan also becomes heavily drunk with his agent Barry on Moonshine during the game.

During a fictional TV Show "Night Springs"; an episode features a mad scientist giving a lecture about his device which affects quantum realities to prevent his death. To prove this; he points a weapon against his head. The machine is disconnected from a power source and the scientist, unknowing to this, proceeds to execute himself in front of the crowd.

During the beginning of the Tutorial Chapter; Alan finds himself riding down a dark street at night before crashing his car into a hitchhiker which stood in the middle of the road. Upon exiting his car the hitchhiker vanishes only to reappear as the first possessed enemy of the game.

Kinda? It's complicated. Alice is spirited away by a malevolent supernatural force, at least.

Most of the enemies are possessed by the eldritch force of darkness dwelling at the bottom of the lake.

Alan finds himself being stalked on several occasions by a variety of random characters such as Ben Mott, Emil Hartman, Barbara Jagger, and even "himself" through a series of televised messages originating from "The Bottom of The Lake".

The institution in question is a low-security, resort-like place with harmlessly eccentric patients instead of Bedlam House, however.

Ben Mott, referred to as "The Kidnapper", dies by being torn apart inside a tornado manifested from the Dark Presence. There are also a large number of blood marks all throughout the game where people have been injured and/or killed.

Alan uses both a Pistol, Shotgun, and a Hunting Rifle to dispatch enemies possessed by the Darkness. The Police also open fire upon Alan during one of the mid-to-late game sequences.
