* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler:He balks at using nuclear weapons in the war, chastising Price for even considering it. It may have had more to do with the fact that it was aimed at America than anything else, however.]]

British soldier in Task Force 141, who prefers to wear a skull-faced ski mask. His face is never shown, and name is never stated in-game, though the tie-in comic centered on him revealed that it's Lt. Simon "Ghost" Riley. [[HeyItsThatVoice Has a suspiciously similar voice to Gaz.]]

* HeroKiller: Every time he is encountered in the flesh, Makarov ends up killing or critically wounding a PlayerCharacter. [[spoiler: Allen, Harkov, Soap, and Yuri (twice!)]]. The only time that doesn't happen is in [[spoiler:the Hotel Oasis, as Price, though Price is still wounded[[note]]Makarov can still kill Price if he delays the distraction[[/note]]]]]].

* TheyLookJustLikeEverybodyElse: Unlike the more obvious Al-Asad and Zakhaev Makarov resembles little more than a bearded, semi handsome Russian soldier in a suit, resembling maybe [[Film/DieHard Hans Gruber]] without the charm.

to:

* HypercompetentSidekickHypercompetentSidekick[=/=]AlmightyJanitor: At the rank of Private he [[DoAnythingSoldier already has authorization for and training with]] basically every weapon system he's ever laid eyes on. And he uses them to pretty much win the war by himself.

* TranquilFury: His speech before the final mission in modern warfare 2 is dripping with this.

to:

* SuddenlyVoiced: Notably, when the player controls him in ''Modern Warfare 3's'' final mission, he doesn't become a SilentProtagonist like Soap does. He remains the only character to be fully voiced under the player's control in the entire ''Modern Warfare'' trilogy.

* SuddenlyVoiced

to:

* SuddenlyVoicedSuddenlyVoiced: Comes after his SilentProtagonist stint in the first game, but reverts back to it for unknown reasons when he returns to the player's control at the end of ''Modern Warfare 2.''

* SoleSurvivor: [[spoiler:Of Team Metal. He is the only one who is not in the diamond mine when it collapses on top of them.]]



* MaskPower




to:

* LivingMacguffin: Makarov wants her so she can be used to force President Vorshevsky to give him the launch codes to the Russian nuclear arsenal. Delta Force and Task Force 141 want her so that doesn't happen.

* DecompositeCharacter: Like Fairbrass' two other characters above, he's a GoodCounterpart {{Foil}} to his voice actor's TheBrute role Delmar from ''Film/{{Cliffhanger}}'', as both characters carried a Beretta 92 as a sidearm and a variant of the [=MP5=] as a primary submachine gun, while both characters [[spoiler: died instantly from a gunshot wound to the chest, ironically Ghost's death was held after being devastated by Shepherd shooting his close colleague Roach, while Delmar's death was held after he himself caused a {{Deuteragonist}}'s devastation by killing off his close friend]]. Additionally, Ghost's diving outfit from "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday" and "The Gulag" resembles Delmar's black jumpsuit, while Ghost wears a balaclava much like Delmar's during the plane heist scene of ''Cliffhanger''. Also, both characters are quite the {{Torture Technician}}s, even though Ghost is a rare heroic example, but their torture tactics and motives tends to differ. While Delmar's brutal KickTheDog NoHoldsBarredBeatdown soccer torture was ForTheEvulz out of his own meaningless sadistic gratification, Ghost's less brutal and more subtle KickTheSonOfTheBitch ColdBloodedTorture on the other hand was meaningfully for extracting important information to take down the enemy.
