* IronicNickname: While it was initially established in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', the names of Prophets being ironic is taken to the extreme: the Prophetess of Obligation neglects some of her duties due to her pregnancy, the Vice Minister of Tranquility (the future Prophet of Regret) is extremely combative, and the Prophet of Restraint knocks up a lover when he's legally forbidden from breeding.

*JustFollowingOrders: Johnson's attitude to the torture and execution of prisoners. It doesn't make him feel better though.



* {{Tsundere}}: Sif is Type B, and finds it frustrating how Mack is able to so efficiently push her buttons. One example of such is when he mentions a Creator/WilliamShakespeare quote and jokes about her not knowing what it is, and she's so irritated by it that she replies with the complete works of Shakespeare in several different languages. He just finds this overreaction amusing.

*WhatTheHellHero: The UNSC torturing and summarily executing some Innie prisoners. It's implied that this is legal as well.

* ForegoneConclusion: ''Lighter Than Some'''s efforts to create peace fail and the Human-Convenant War kicks off, Harvest falls, Tartarus supplants Maccabeus and gains the ''Fist of Rukt'' (and survives the experience).
