* TooDumbToLive: In episode 41, Gordon recruits a scientist to open the door leading outside, but first has to get past a couple of spinning blades. Gordon easily moves through them and tries to coach the scientist to do the same. The next thing you hear is *SPLAT*. Gordon is annoyed. Luckily, there were two more scientists to work with.

Added DiffLines:

** While Gordon doesn't have a very high opinion of the military in general, he has special scorn for the moron grunts hanging around obviously radioactive waste just as he enters the Lambda complex.
--->'''Gordon:''' You know what the number one regret of dying people is? It's "I regret playing near all that radioactive waste because now I'm fucking dying!"

* CopKiller: After Alyx murders the Civil Protection officers beating him up, Freeman berates her for it, noting that killing a police officer means they will come after you with greater force and intensity. When he's hunted by the Metrocops in the train station, he assumes that it's due to a guilt by association thing, and he's only making it worse by defending himself.

* SarcasmMode: Alyx calling Gordon a man of few words is played as this since in this series Freeman doesn't shut up.

Added DiffLines:

* TheScapegoat: Gordon thinks the cops are scapegoating him because they need someone to blame for their losses and assume he was the leader of the building they raided before Alex found him.
* SeriousBusiness: When Gordon sees a train run down a cop without even trying to brake, he assumes they must be really serious about their schedules.

* DoWrongRight: Gordon is miffed when he thinks the Vortigaunts are being used as personal slaves. Not because he disapproves of enslaving them, but because letting them be close to you is asking for trouble.

Not because he disapproves of enslaving them, them (he enthusiastically approves of ''that''), but because letting making them ''personal'' slaves is something he feels is irresponsible and unsafe, presumably because it would be close to you is asking easier for trouble.them to rebel that way.



* SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity: Gordon is deeply suspicious, and slightly unnerved, at the discovery of random ammo packs that happen to be strewn across his path. Especially since the packs are always the right caliber for his gun. May double as a CallBack to when he mused on the possibility of being a cosmic pawn in the first series.

He eventually concludes that the cops are ''so'' trigger-happy that they just walk around carrying these big boxes of ammo everywhere and sometimes drop them accidentally.

* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: Gordon ''thinks'' this trope is in effect when he falls into a train car containing a man and a Vortigaunt, and immediately shoots the Vortigaunt dead, still unaware that humans and Vortigaunts are [[EnemyMine now on the same side]]. As far as he's concerned, he just saved the guy's life and the thanks he gets is a gun pointed in his face and a boot out the door, which leaves him utterly baffled. He decides that the only explanation that makes sense is that the Vortigaunt was the guy's slave, and the guy was simply angry that Gordon destroyed his property.

* DoWrongRight: Gordon is miffed when he thinks the Vortigaunts are being used as personal slaves. Not because he disapproves of enslaving them, but because there are far more efficient uses for them than as mere servants.

Added DiffLines:

* ExplodingBarrels: Lampshaded when Gordon ponders the precise fume-to-liquid ratio which would be necessary to make barrels explode in such a fashion. He concludes Civil Protection must have deliberately engineered and placed them to make their indiscriminate killing easier.
* FriendlyFireproof: Averted, unlike in the actual game. Gordon guns down the first friendly Vortigaunt he meets under the assumption that it's hostile, earning the ire of the human it was working with. He assumes the Vortigaunt was the guy's personal slave.
