Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: He has the role of a field agent in the game, and his denominations as an ex-NSA "operative" and a "troubleshooter" imply a very action-oriented background. In real life, however, NSA is in task of basically just collection and processing of data and doesn't have operatives in the same way CIA or FBI have.

* {{AFGNCAAP}}: Virtually nothing is known about the Sergeant, unlike the Point Man, whose character is later fleshed out.

* {{AFGNCAAP}}: Virtually nothing is known AmbiguouslyHuman: A comment by Fettel about the Sergeant, unlike similarities between the Sergeant and the Point Man and a throwaway line by the Nightcrawler Commander labelling him as "another of Betters's tin-men" suggest he is no regular human and is instead somehow related to the Point Man, whose likely a clone of him. Sadly, given the character has been removed from canon, we will never discover the Sarge's true nature (however, to show how much weight he had in the canon, the Point Man's true face in the third game is later fleshed out.''striking'' similar to the Sergeant's face model in this game's files, lending credibility to the clone theory).

* FeaturelessProtagonist: Virtually nothing is known about the Sergeant, unlike the Point Man, whose character is later fleshed out.



* DoesNotLikeShoes: Alma is barefoot in her child form, even in flashbacks of her past life. As they often show her in her grass-grounded HappyPlace, it isn't too weird for her to go shoeless. When she appears as a ghost, however, the trait is completed with FootprintsOfMuck to make a point in creepiness.

Averted, however, by her teenage form, who wears black shoes.



* GodivaHair: Her seductive form has her long, dark hair covering her breasts - presumably out of preference rather than modesty, since it covers nothing else. Her corpse is the same, but lacks sexual appeal. In both cases, there's a reason her hair doesn't swing around and reveal anything - she's soaked in water.

Her corpse is Unlike many examples of the same, but lacks sexual appeal. In both cases, trope, there's a reason her hair doesn't swing around and reveal anything - she's soaked in water.



* TheOphelia: Alma appears to have many Ophelia-esque aspects, particularly in ''F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin''. She is shown singing in several hallucinations, and in the prequel videos she dances around a doctor who she's been gleefully mindraping. Water shows up often in her hallucinations, which makes sense, as, like Ophelia, she died by drowning (in her case, in amniotic fluid). And her hair in her "child" form tends to be wild and frazzled.

* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Aside from the usual powers of teleportation and laughing off physics, she is perfectly capable of [[MindRape mind-raping people into gibbering madness]], flash-liquefying their flesh and leaving their skeletons behind, creating numerous [[PeoplePuppets psychic abominations]] and paranormal entities and [[spoiler: raping a player character to ''successfully'' bear his child, which seems like an entirely corporeal infant.]]

* SuperSoldier: Built from the DNA up to act as them. Specifically,t hey aren't intended as the OneManArmy sort of supersoldier; instead they are marketed as cheap, reliable, loyal, and disposable soldiers who are just as well-trained as human soldiers but vastly cheaper and able to do missions that would be impossible for normal humans.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Even although Fettel controls his soldiers via telepathy, F.E.A.R. is called to carry on what is thought to be just the assassination of an otherwise regular army commander, something an unit specialized in assassins would probably do better than one specialized in ghostbusting. It's only when it's revealed [[spoiler:that the Point Man is his brother and that Alma is in the party]] that it starts making sense that the Senator and Aristide called F.E.A.R. instead of going for people like the Nigthcrawlers.

* BadassNormal: Holiday is the only Delta Force operative who doesn't get his ass handed to him over the course of the game. In the Xbox360 port, he gets his own playable level wherein he of course lacks the Point Man's killer reflexes, but mows down whole squads of Replica anyway.

\n* TookALevelInJerkass: A JustifiedTrope in ''F.E.A.R. 3''. [[spoiler:His manifestation as the Creep is obsessed with becoming a god and regularly torments Alma and her sons, but this comes as a result of her not understanding that her father had become TheAtoner after having a HeelRealization, and not acknowledging the fact that he let her free from containment as a way to make amends. To that effect, the Creep is less a manifestation of Harlan himself than it is of Alma's memories of him as an {{Abusive Parent|s}}.]]

* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: Though she pretends that she is interested in locking down Project Origin to keep people safe, Aristide's actions, up to and including [[spoiler:murdering one of the people who was putting her in protective custody, and setting the other up as TheBait for Alma]], give away the fact that she is far less interested in the public wellbeing or her own employees than she is about her own safety and status.





to:

\n* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Despite her horrific actions (and unlike Harlan Wade, a complete lack of any remorse), she does not appear, nor is she even mentioned, after the events of ''Project Origin''. Given this lack of appearance or mention, fans believe she [[KarmaHoudini got away without any issue]].

* TookAShortcut: In the second game, she travels by herself along more or less the same route the protagonist ends up taking, and somehow manages to get from one end of the city to the other despite it being the middle of the apocalypse and she being an older civilian with no superpowers or combat training.
