** In "Pyrrhic Victory", while what he says in Spanish to his men while being used as a shield as a Mason isn't subtitled, part of it roughly translates to, "The American knows nothing about loyalty. Let's show him." He then promptly pulls the pin on a grenade, which forces Mason to let him go...and also forces two of his soldiers to sacrifice themselves by dogpiling on the grenade when it falls to the floor, lest Menendez be blown up himself.

* BadBoss: Sorta. In "Time and Fate", he is the only player character in Call of Duty history who can kill his own soldiers without causing a NonStandardGameOver.

* AnticlimaxBoss: Menendez receives ''significant'' build-up throughout the game as a powerful combatant, more so than almost any other ''Call of Duty'' villain, yet at the end he's not defeated in a dramatic confrontation but rather [[spoiler:due to Section literally dropping on top of him ''by accident''.]]

!!Commander David Mason (callsign: Section)

to:

!!Commander !!Lieutenant Commander David Mason (callsign: Section)


Added DiffLines:

* BloodKnight: Has shades of this.
--> (To Hudson) "Haha! My friend from above! You killed many men today, eh? Yes! Hahaha! We all did!"
* FrontlineGeneral: Not only does he personally leads his troops into battle, he also joins in the fray with them, brandishing his [[GrenadeLauncher MM-1]].
* GunshipRescue: He personally leads one at the end of "Pyrrhic Victory", rescuing Mason and co. from being overrun by Cuban soldiers.


Added DiffLines:

* BadBoss: He routinely kills his own men to keep his dirty deals a secret and/or to save his own skin.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: ''Ho boy''. First he betrays the Americans in "Time and Fate" by freeing Menendez from custody and making a deal with him. He betrays them yet again when he claims Menendez is dead, only for the latter to turn up in Panama, alive and well. Then after getting captured in "Suffer with Me", he begrudgingly works with Woods to kill Menendez, [[spoiler:only to trick him into shooting Mason.]]

* BadassGrandpa: In the 1980s missions in ''Black Ops II'', Woods is nearing sixty years old, but you would never guess it from how much ass he kicks.



* BadassGrandpa: [[spoiler:Shows up to confront Alex Mason in Afghanistan in 1986; he's in surprisingly good fighting shape for a 64-year old man, even though he finally got [[ExtremeMeleeRevenge his ass kicked this time thanks to Mason & Woods]].]]



* BadassGrandpa: During the missions set in 2025, we see Menendez physically overpowering and killing soldiers despite the fact that he's over sixty years old.

* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:In the level where you play as him, he can survive about as much damage as a friggin ''Juggernaut'', and moves significantly faster than a normal player character. He's also able to instantly reload his shotgun, seemingly through the power of sheer rage.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GrumpyOldMan: Unsurprisingly, being cooped up in the Vault all day while being confined to a wheelchair and having to deal with Raul Menendez has made him a little salty in ''Black Ops II''. A good portion of his dialogue is ordering Harper or his caregivers to grab him drinks or smokes. At least he's affectionate to Section.

Added DiffLines:

* PlotArmor: Even if the grenade belt was out of range, there's no in-game explanation for how he survived a [[BackStab knife through the back]] and a fall that would likely have broken his neck. This is lifted in the sequel where he gets shot in the head.
