* In ''Halo 2'', the Prophet of Mercy refers to Halo as a "divine wind [that] will sweep through the stars, delivering all who are worthy to salvation." "Divine wind" is a literal English translation of the Japanese word "kamikaze", whose [[TakingYouWithMe more modern definition]] is closer to Halo's actual purpose.

* In halo 5 It's relieved that the swords of Sanghilos have female soldiers integrated into their forces, at first it seemed like just random exposition but then it hit me, during the events of halo 2 and 3 The arbiter had seen women in the UNSC military hold their own against the Covenant and the flood, It was Miranda Keyes who stopped the halo from firing and who commanded the human force at the assault on the ark's control room, from these experiences Arbiter probably came to the conclusion that like the great journey, that the tradition of forbidding women from becoming warriors was another thing that was a lie passed down.

* There's something very appropriate about Dr. Halsey saying she chose John for his luck. Namely, another famous Halsey, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Halsey,_Jr Fleet Admiral William Jr]] , commanded the task force centred on the ''Enterprise'' (CV-6), the luckiest of America's WW2 aircraft carriers.

* One may imagine that the concept of the [[VideoGame/Halo3ODST ODST]] shares a bit of similarity to [[ItsRainingMen HALO jumpers]] (a high-altitude aerial insertion; to say the physical requirements are strenuous might be understating it a bit: see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HALO_jump the article]] on ThatOtherWiki for details). ''{{Franchise/Halo}}''... [[FunWithAcronyms HALO]]. Whoa.

* ''{{Franchise/Halo}}''. Specifically, the Human-Covenant war. The casualties are never really covered in the games... but Bungie have released statistics. Remember when Miranda Keyes says "casualties from the initial bombardment were... extreme" in ''{{VideoGame/Halo 3}}'', referring to Truth's bombardment of Earth? Well, it turns out that this bombardment meant that there were only 200 million humans left on Earth by the end. Less than the population of America. And Earth wasn't even fully glassed - whereas around 70 planets were, many of them major colonies like Reach. You know what this means? '''Dozens of billions of humans''' have been killed in the Halo universe. Soldiers, civilians, children. All mercilessly eradicated by a beam from space so powerful, it turns the surface of the planet to glass. It reminds This me or pouring water into an ant's nest, in the most horrifying way possible... doubly so when you realise that's what we must seem like to the xenophobic captains of the Covenant ships. At the end of the war, we - people like you and me - may very well be on the verge of extinction.

* Gravemind says it is "a monument to all your sins". A lot of people were wondering what that actually means. 343 Guilty Spark says that Master Chief and Humanity are, as successors, Forerunner. [[spoiler:In the expanded universe, the Flood were created as a last-ditch effort by the Precursors during a war against the Forerunners.]] He said this because he recognized MC as a "new Forerunner".

* Just recently I questioned why Covenant ships didn't always utterly curbstomp human fleets no matter what, they're supposed to be using Forerunner tech. But then it hit me, the Covenant capital ships are good at glassing planets. The ships that the Covenant are using are after battle clean up ships, designed to completely eradicate flood a infestation after a real battle. And to the response of 'but they don't really glass the planets, just render them inhospitable by convection', they don't always have to glass the entire planet, as in Halo 3 with half of Africa, but if it really becomes necessary, just throw more ships at the problem.
