* In Nova Prospekt, one of the things you hear the Overwatch voice say is "Attention Nova Prospekt internal containment team. De-service all political conscripts in block A7. Prohibit external contact." What do you find when you reach block A7? A dead vortigaunt. Clearly it was an intruction to kill it so it couldn't communicate with Freeman.

** Perhaps most telling is a radio message referring to Freeman as "Status: Malignant". In a way, that makes perfect sense: Freeman's growing reputation, and hence his growing number of followers and rebels, is seen like a spreading cancer.

* In ''Half Life'', the surviving scientists at the Lambda Core's plan were to teleport Gordon into Xen so he could destroy the mastermind behind the invasion. ''But they never even mentioned how they were going to bring Gordon back to Earth''. It's entirely possible that the scientists at the Lambda Core were planning to just sacrifice Gordon for the sake of humanity and to leave him there, stranded in Xen for the rest of his life if the G-Man weren't to intervene.

* Counts as a StealthPun, too: While all the other original ''Half-Life'' titles were about things coming apart, ''Blue Shift'' was about things coming ''together''. In astronomy, guess what being blue-shifted means?

** Well they ''try'' [[ArtificialBrilliance to use tactics]], you just kill them too fast for them to actually do anything

* FreemansMind pointed out a particular brilliance: The reason that the building was falling apart was because the AliensAndMonsters were teleporting into the walls.

* G-Man often addresses Gordon as if he worked for G-Man, meaning when Gordon was taken out of G-Man's influence at the beginning of Episode One, he was given a ''mandatory reprieve''.

* Barnacles can be killed by the Crowbar in one hit. Barnacles tend to be scraped off of ships with objects, like, you guessed it, a Crowbar.
