* AdaptationDistillation: In the game, the Library level is one ''long'' fight with a massive number of Flood enemies, limited ammunition availability, endless sets of identical-looking rooms, and 343 Guilty Spark yammering the entire time; not coincidentally, it is widely considered one of the worst levels in the entire ''Halo'' series. In the book? One paragraph.

* SuddenDownerEnding: [=McKay=], Silva, and hundreds of other marines manage to take over the ''Truth and Reconciliation'', and are about to leave Halo... [[spoiler: when Silva firmly grasps the IdiotBall to force the ending to be an IdiotPlot; he decides he wants to take Flood samples with him, despite the warnings of Wellsley and [=McKay=]. Even worse, he doesn't plan on containing them before taking off, being convinced that his people can save that part for afterwards. Instead of either continuing to try and talk Silva down, or even assassinate him and hope (perhaps vainly) that saner minds prevail, [=McKay=] blows up the entire ship, killing everybody on board. This is probably because they were all DoomedByCanon anyways]]. The sad thing is, [[spoiler:even if Silva had ordered a full decontamination before takeoff, this trope might have still applied anyways, given that they had almost no time left before the ''Autumn'' blew up and took Halo with it]].

* {{Irony}}: Yayap saves Zuka 'Zamamee's life during the assault on the ''Pillar of Autumn'' to give himself and his fellow Grunts an excuse to move away from the fighting. It just gets him transferred to a Spec-Ops unit which takes even more dangerous missions.
