* ArtifactTitle: Despite this film being called Missing In Action, there are no [=POWs=]. In fact, this film pretty much [[CanonDiscontinuity seems to ignore the previous two MIA films]], since Braddock couldn't possibly have witnessed the Fall of Saigon if he was being held prisoner by the NVA.

* LoopholeAbuse: Braddock's first lines of dialogue to Yin is telling him the Geneva Convention forbids having [[=POWs=]] after a war has ended. Yin's response? They're not [[=POWs=]], but war criminals. He spends a good portion of the movie trying to coerce Braddock to sign a false confession in order to give his abuses a veneer of legality.

** Also, he has a Vietnamese wife he thought dead during the Fall. In MIA 2, it's mentioned Braddock has a wife, but she's not only NOT presumed dead, it's implied she lives in America and Colonel Yin, in one of his numerous KickTheDog moments, told Braddock she was about to remarry.
