* BoomHeadshot: Poor [[spoiler:Rimmer]] dies this way at the hands of [[spoiler:Clarence]], though it's better than death by infection.



* DependingOnTheWriter: The Flood are apparently capable of quickly infecting people through simply stabbing them, rather than just an Infection Form (which are never seen infecting anyone on-screen ironically enough). Three of the Marines are infected in this manner. Though not exclusive to this story, the speed is.



* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Smith claims this when confronted with the fact that he [[spoiler: knowingly infected both Elites and humans with the Flood for the sake of research.]]

* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Most Elites are arrogant {{Proud Warrior Race Guy}}s, but "Henry" is very docile for one. Notably, several times he saves his human allies's lives rather than letting them be killed, and even consents to using a human assault rifle, when Elites have been seen choosing to fight barehanded rather than use a human weapon.

* MoreDakka: This is the main method the Marines use to take down the Flood, but unfortunately as any ''Halo'' veteran knows, it's a poor method of killing Combat Forms, and the Marines pay dearly.

In all fairness, they ''are'' up against the Flood.



* OnlyAFleshWound: The Flood infectees can recover from almost any wound. Only a headshot, heart shot, and then crushing or tearing apart the body guarantees they'll stay dead.

** Averted with the humans stabbed by the Flood in a case of NewPowersAsThePlotDemands; any wound inflicted by the Flood, even if the offending matter is removed, infects them.

* BigBrotherIsWatching: At the end of the story, a government official notes that devices all over the planet (from medical stations, to communications beacons, to a ''painter's jetbrush'') all record everything that happens around them and sends it to AIs to sift through for extraordinary occurrences (such as this one). A bemused official notes that they're just flat-out spying on their citizens at this point.

* ThePerilsOfBeingTheBest: Cole is reputed as the greatest admiral the UNSC has ever had. He suffers the many, many, downsides because of having that sort of reputation, a few of which include: 1) he can't surrender in battle because no enemy would believe it's anything but a tactical ploy of some kind, (especially since he has pulled an ISurrenderSuckers when he first became a captain), 2) he is the target of many rebel Insurrectionists, including one who turned to be his wife, 3) he is under constant stress from PTSD, leading to four divorces and several replaced organs, and 4) he is constantly pulled out of retirement to battle the Covenant. Eventually he goes "Screw it" and [[spoiler:executes his own DyingMomentOfAwesome during his biggest battle yet during which he fakes his death and flees with his old wife to places unknown.]]

Team Black is very uneasy about him, and don't know if he can be trusted. [[spoiler:He couldn't. The Drones are all psychotic "Unmutuals" who were being imprisoned to keep them from being a danger to others.]]
