* CombatBreakdown: Happens very quickly in Ethan's final fight with the BigBad. Both of them are trained to use disablers like broken limbs, and both of them ''land'' those disablers, leading to Ethan hopping around with a useless leg for much of the fight. A tense aversion of the typical "MadeOfIron" approach to movie brawls.

* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: The film opens with Hunt having spent an indeterminate amount of time in a Russian prison, implied to be several months. He still has ''gorgeous'', presumably high-maintenance hair.

* DisposableWoman: Ethan Hunt was [[spoiler:in a Russian prison after he killed the Serbian nationalists who killed his wife]], and the analyst with him [[spoiler:left field duty because he felt he failed his mission. In a subversion, it turns out her death was faked to protect her from any such attempts in the future; the Serbians only kidnapped her and died when Ethan went to her rescue.]]

* SoundtrackDissonance: [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] by Benji during the opening. Ethan is escaping a Russian prison filled with aggressive prisoners engaged in full-on riot mode. Benji's choice of music to play through the prison PA system during this festival of fists, feet and general anarchy? The DeanMartin jazz song, "Ain't That a Kick in the Head".

* TookALevelInBadass: Creator/SimonPegg's lab-rat character Benji from the third film returns for ''Ghost Protocol'' and has passed the field-agent exam, although he is still the least capable of the foursome when it comes to anything besides tech work. He does get a very {{Badass}} gunplay moment, [[spoiler: shooting TheDragon to save Brandt's life]], towards the end of the film.

* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: PlayedWith. After the Kremlin bombing, Ethan wakes up in a Russian hospital with a concussion. He focuses on a local news report, and the movie displays helpful subtitles... in Cyrillic. They gradually resolve themselves into English as Ethan's faculties return.

* SequelHook: In contrast to the other installments (which usually cut off after the "Your mission, should you choose to accept it..." bookend scene), ''Ghost Protocol'' ends with Ethan walking in San Francisco and listening to the first part of his mission briefing, which mentions an emerging terrorist group named TheSyndicate, based (in name at least) on the recurring organized crime gangs from the television series.

And in the [[Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation next film]], their next conflict is truly them.
