The most exciting discovery to come from the LHC would be that of something completely unexpected. To that end, the ATLAS experiment has been enthusiastically analyzing the 2012 LHC data recorded at a centre of mass energy of 8 TeV looking for any possible evidence of new physics. A variety of signatures has been considered, including heavy resonances, excesses above the Standard Model expectation in numerous channels, and particles that are long-lived, highly ionizing, or invisible. This talk will explore some of these searches and touch on the various interpretations, such as dark matter, extra dimensions, and other intriguing extensions to the Standard Model.
