* An ''[[BlackComedy extremely grim]]'' example: 'DeaderThanDisco' is a possible BondOneLiner for a soldier to spout upon killing a hostile. Disco is available as a random nickname for a Heavy. Should poor Disco have previously met an untimely end when someone delivers that line... mostly amusing when one imagines the [[CrossesTheLineTwice range of]] [[DudeNotFunny possible]] [[TooSoon reactions]] from any squadmates within earshot. For extra black comedy, it is entirely possible for an operative to say that line during the ''exact same mission'' Disco just got KIA on.

* To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the game's release, Firaxis made [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzm9P4LK62E&feature=youtu.be a video tribute]] to Vahlen's MemeticMutation request that soldiers avoid using explosives against the aliens. It ends with a StupidStatementDanceMix and [[spoiler: Vahlen's Secret Volcano Lair being destroyed in ''[[VideoGame/{{Civilization}} Civilization VI]]''.]] And then they streamed the video on their official Website/{{Twitch}} channel for an entire day.

** Another example, a female sniper with the last name [[Franchise/StarCraft Kerrigan.]] Her handle once she reached Sergeant? ''Blades''. To top it off, she turned out to be the only soldier to have psi-abilities in that playthrough.

* Thin Men are annoying, especially in Council missions, in which they decide to drop out of the sky at random in a perfect spot to kill your hostage. However, if you know they're coming, you can just order all your soldiers to go on Overwatch and when the [[SlenderManMythos Slender-wannabe]] drops down, acting all high and mighty, [[NoKillLikeOverkill all your soldiers shoot him at once]]. [[NightmareRetardant So much for scary infiltrating aliens.]]
