* NeverBareheaded: Price does not go anywhere without ''some'' kind of hat. Even in [[spoiler: the gulag]], he has a nifty wool hat on, and after he [[spoiler:removes his bomb disposal suit at the end of ''[=MW3=]'', he's shown wearing his boonie hat underneath]].
** Except in "Crew Expendable" in Modern Warfare 1, he is balding.

* UnwittingPawn: Really, his entire role was to draw the US's attention away from the civil war in Russia. The [[spoiler: nuclear bomb]] that he used on the Marines was [[spoiler:actually set off by Makarov, to both kill American troops and keep the blame pinned on al-Asad.]]
** The very first moment that you see him in the flesh confirms al-Asad's status as a pathetic puppet of the Ultranationalists. Al-Asad, in his own country, surrounded by his own men, walks up to Zakhaev, who points a pistol ''in his face'', and al-Asad stops like a deer trapped in the headlights. Zakhaev then casually spins the pistol around and hands it to al-Asad, as if saying "''now go kill al-Fulani like a good dog''." And he does as the master commands.
