* As pointed out across the series, the Ceph you face in the games are basically caretaker/drone units and billions of years less advanced than the homeworld Ceph. In essence, Humanity was nearly wiped out but the Ceph version of Roombas! Imagine was the main world Ceph would have been like to fight, if it could have been considered a fight.

* When Prophet pulled a GrandTheftMe on Alcatraz. Crysis: Legion shows that Alcatraz was still very much conscious (atleast his personality copy was, even if incomplete) and lost his battle for control against Prophet. Meaning that while Prophet was in control of his body, there was nothing Alcatraz could do about it!

* At one point in the first game, when Nomad [[spoiler: has been captured by the Koreans and brought to General Kyong, Kyong asks Dr. Rosenthal "Would the CIA be interested in a temple? Would the US Military be interested in a temple?" And then he points to Nomad and asks "Would HE be interested in a temple?"]] At first, [[spoiler: it seems weird that Kyong would separate Nomad from the rest of the US military, but when you take the events of the sequels and the origins of the Nanosuit (which the Koreans have) into account, it makes sense. The Koreans somehow got nanotech from Hargreave (perhaps Hargreave himself gave them nanosuit technology as a contingency plan in case the US nanosuit teams could not gain access to the aforementioned "temple" (the Ceph ship). Kyong knows that Hargreave has his own plans concerning the Ceph ship, and Kyong is attempting to hijack those plans so that whatever Hargreave wants, Korea gets instead.]] Of course, [[spoiler: Nomad puts an end to those plans quite quickly, and even if he didn't, Kyong probably wasn't prepared for living Ceph, which is probably a hint that either the nanosuit technology was stolen or that Hargreave didn't trust Kyong enough to tell him as much as Prophet was told.]]

* Depending on how you view transhumanism, the nanosuits themselves are this. Unless they are removed from the wearer (a process which will likely kill them), the suit will eventually completely assimilate and replace the wearer.

* Why was Crysis 2 the most heavily, direct combat focused of the 4 games? Because Alcatraz was a Marine and more trained for direct confrontation in comparison to Nomad's, Psycho's, and Prophet's great emphasis on stealth and guerrilla warfare.

While both have a combination of training in direct action and stealth warfare, Force Recon is more focused on direct action, with Special Forces are more focused on stealth.

** Could be a case of ForgotHeWasARobot. The Nanosuit is similar to a Marvel symbiote. It slowly replaces the wearer cell by cell. After 20 years, its probable that Prophet really didn't have lungs anymore (its confirmed in Crysis 2 that Alcatraz/Prophet did most of his thought processes via the suit's processors and not an organic brain), but he is so unaware of his status that psychologically he still behaves as if he needs oxygen.

* Why was Alcatraz's personality scan corrupted beyond usability after the events of Crysis 2, being supplanted by Prophet's at the end? Because Prophet wore the Nanosuit 2.0 for months or even years, allowing ample time for the suit to do a full brain scan. Alcatraz wore the suit for a day or two at most before finally succumbing to his wounds, halting the brain scan before it was finished and only leaving enough data for Prophet to impersonate him instead of just being him.

* The Ceph use a combination of energy and icicle-throwing weapons like the MOAC in the early games. Considering the later reveal that [[spoiler: the Ceph on Earth are the equivalent of interstellar gardeners trying to preserve the planet's biosphere,]] their choice of ice for ammo makes allot of sense; it's the ultimate biodegradable ammunition, and by using the moisture in the air they essentially have unlimited ammo for their guns.

* The ending to the expansion ''Warhead'' is very satisfying: you've killed the big boss alien, thwarted your human opponent, and secured the relic for your side to study. Then you remember the ending to the main game: the alien specimen you recover will be destroyed when the Constitution is sunk, so this was all for nothing.

(You did keep it away from the Koreans, though it seems unlikely they would have gotten it away from the aliens anyway, and simply destroying the artifact could have been achieved with much less effort.)
