Delta Green is heavily based on classical conspiracy/UFO theories, meshing them with the CthulhuMythos milieu: DG themselves are a spin on TheMenInBlack, but there are also other shadow agencies involved, including the now famous Majestic 12 group that deals with the Greys (actually Mi-Go in disguise). Other players are the Karotechia, [[{{Ghostapo}} occultist Nazis serving an "ascended" Hitler]]; the Fate, a criminal organization that makes heavy use of Mythos creatures and spells for fun and profit; [=SaucerWatch=], a naïve yet well-funded UFO research group that may be closer to the truth than they know; and the [[AncientConspiracy Cult of Transcendence]], among others.

* KnowWhenToFoldEm: The Deep Ones. In the original sourcebook, it's noted that DG invested much of its efforts from its founding in the wake of Innsmouth until after World War II to hunting down Deep One colonies. As such, the vast majority of them have determined the surface world is now more trouble than its worth, and only very isolated enclaves remain on the surface.

* DeadlineNews: ''Phenomen-X'', the basic cable conspiracy investigation show, can suffer this. DG is perfectly willing to treat them as canaries in the coal mines to see if alleged supernatural is actually a threat.

* {{Ghostapo}}: The Karotechia -- at least, what remains of it. An eldery worshipper of Yog-Sothoth, an undead MadScientist {{Necromancer}} mixing the legacies of both [[Film/ReAnimator Herbert West]] and Dr Munoz from ''Cool Air'', a [[ImAHumanitarian humanitarian]] ubermensch who gets immortality and invincibility in the bargain, and the "ascended" spirit of Adolf Hitler (at least, they ''think'' it's Hitler...).
