Various factions - including [[ANaziByAnyOtherName The Fourth Reich]], [[DirtyCommunists The Red Line]], and [[ProudMerchantRace The Gemeinschaft]] [[HanseaticLeague der Ringstationen]] - inhabit the stations. That is, the stations that have not yet succumbed to [[ThePlague diseases]], tent fires, cave-ins or mysterious mass deaths. The tunnels between the stations are populated by rats, mutants and unexplainable but very lethal phenomena. Oh, and don't even think about [[DeathWorld going up to the surface]].

* ComeWithMeIfYouWantToLive: [[spoiler:Although granted, it's more "You're Coming With Us Whether You Like It Or Not Since You're Unconcious From Almost Being Hanged".]]
* [[ContemplateOurNavels Contemplating Our Navels]]: The preferred past time of all Metro inhabitants, including stalkers, merchants, and cannibalistic cultists!

* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels: Much of the Russian cultural specific dialogue, phrases, and nuances were translated rather literally into English. This results in funny occasions when characters will ask if they have noodles on their ears[[note]]The correct English equivalent would be if "you're pulling their leg"[[/note]].

* KillItWithFire: Whatever made the webs in 2034 dies a fiery death when Homer sets them alight to clear the path.
** More prominently in that book, this is what [[spoiler: Hunter plans to do to the infected station. He would have done it too, if the local soldiers [[KillItWithWater hadn't flooded the station]] first.]]

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Whilst many of the stations in the Moscow Metro are deep enough to shelter in during nuclear war (in fact, sections of Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line were deep sunk for this purpose), many of the stations were constructed using a "cut and cover" technique, which would probably collapse in the event of a nuclear blast. For instance, the Communist stations on the Red Line are all pre-ColdWar, and are not nearly deep enough, nor are the three Nazi stations.

* EstrogenBrigadeBait: Rusakov, who is introduced as "the handsome man in leather" and is referred as such during every single sentence he appears in (with also: "His handsome masculine face", "his handsome, manly face" and "a beautiful brace face and a strong chin").

* ScamReligion: Both subverted and followed straight with [[spoiler: the Great Worm cultists. The creator of the religion says he was outright lying to his followers, just to spread his hate against machines… but then Artyom sees something big moving in the tunnels, implied to be said Great Worm]].

* BlobMonster: There's... something, beneath the Kremlin, which induces incredible levels of euphoria in its victims making suicide seem like a good idea to them. It's only described as a shapeless mass.

* BlobMonster: There's... something, beneath the Kremlin, born out of a biological attack, which induces incredible levels of euphoria in its victims making suicide seem victims. It gets to the point that walking right into the seething, malevolent blob starts looking like a good idea to them.great idea. It's only described as a shapeless mass.

* NuclearNasty: the surface world is made of this trope to the point of {{Narm}}. Looks like in this verse, hard radiation actually does produce monsters, mutants and dinosaurs, 1950s style. And bioweapons produce {{Blob Monster}}s.
