* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: For whatever reason, the games have a ''massive'' following in Mexico and South America.



** The Locust were supposed to have an entirely different type of the Triple Punch execution in which they would rip the enemy's arm off, then beat their face with it. It was cut out due to timing issues in ''Gears of War 2'', leading them to have the same Y button execution as the COG, but made its debut in ''Gears of War 3'', giving them a unique execution from the COG.

* IKnewIt: [[spoiler:Before ''Gears of War'' 4 was released, many fans jokingly speculated that Baird was the one who created the [=DeeBees=] that the reformed COG uses since they shared the same initials as him. The campaign proved the fans right by revealing that over the 25 year TimeSkip, Baird became a FamedInStory world-renowned industrialist who, being the resident GadgeteerGenius of the COG, is indeed the creator of the [=DeeBees=].]]
* TheOtherDarrin: Jace goes from having an Australian-sounding voice in his cameo in ''Gears of War 2'' to being played by Michael B. Jordan in ''Gears of War 3''.
* TheOtherMarty: As shown in this [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-feature/2015/02/02-1/feature-interview-with-voice-actor-christopher-sabat interview]], Creator/ChristopherSabat recorded lines for Marcus Fenix in ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar2'' during the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007%E2%80%9308_Writers_Guild_of_America_strike 200708 Writers Guild of America strike]] that affected the LA {{unions|in Hollywood}} (thus having the game be moved over to Texas for voice recording due to its non-union environment, effectively bypassing the union-related issues) [[note]]As he's a Texas-based actor[[/note]] until the game was moved back to LA to be recorded once the strike ended.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In hindsight, knocking the Corpser into Imulsion probably wasn't the greatest idea. Good thing the Lightmass Bomb took care of it.

* MythologyGag: [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100721183360/gearsofwar/images/1/1f/Claycarmine.jpg Clayton Carmine]] is a big one to his decreased younger brother Anthony. In ''Gears of War'', Anthony was killed by sniper fire after standing up to display his issue with his Lancer assault rifle jamming constantly as he reloaded it. To list how Clayton's design references it, "Practice reloading" and "Keep your head down" are written on his armor. If that wasn't enough, a mark on his helmet implies he was shot in the head but survived anyway.
** Clayton honors the memory of the two fallen Carmine brothers with a memorial tattoo on his arm [[TheFaceless of their helmets]].
** ''Gears of War 3'' is ''filled'' with these.
*** The tier 4 medal for interacting with objects during the campaign (i.e. hitting buttons) references Lieutenant Minh Young Kim's oft-repeated line in the first game of "I'll open the door; I've got the code."
*** A player using Dominic Santiago will sometimes hear him repeat one of his earliest lines from ''Gears of War'', "This is gonna be awesome!"
*** After killing a COG character, Queen Myrrah will sometimes reference a line from the ''Gears of War 2'' opening cinematic, "You brought this upon yourselves!"
*** Early in the first game, after first meeting Augustus Cole, Dom and Marcus talk about when they saw him play. Marcus will quip "I remember you owe me 20 bucks" to which Dom replies "Yeah? See me after the war." One of the first collectibles in the third game is a 20-dollar bill on Marcus' desk with a note from Dom.
*** After Delta Squad hijacks a Gas Barge, they find Dizzy hunkered down in a supply depot holding out against the Locust. Marcus asks if Dizzy is "taking on the grub army single-handedly again." Dizzy replies with "I guess I shoulda learned my lesson against Skorge."
*** If you can manage to get through a round of Gridlock without anyone destroying one of the ash people, the next round will begin with an instrumental version of Gary Jules' cover of "[[Music/TearsForFears Mad World]]", the same song used for the ''Gears of War'' commercial. [[spoiler: It's also the music that plays during Dom's HeroicSacrifice]].
*** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ73YHx15jA Who wants toast?!]]" makes a comeback in ''Gears of War 3'' as one of Marcus' one-liners when throwing an incendiary grenade.
** ''Gears of War 2'' has no shortage of them either, even though it only has one game to CallBack to. "This is the part where he tells you he'll take it under advisement." and "Hey, Colonel, I guess we ARE the support, huh?!" come to mind. Also, the entire time you're with Benjamin Carmine in the Hollow, Dom doesn't stop making stealthy quips about Anthony, while Marcus tells him to [[DudeNotFunny knock it off]].
** ''Gears of War 4'' has one gameplay trailer where Marcus and his son JD's squad take shelter in Marcus' greenhouse, which is then ambushed by [=DeeBees=]. The second the bullets start flying, Marcus angrily shouts "Shit, they're gonna mess up my fuckin' tomatoes!", calling back to the first level in ''Gears of War 3'' in which the Lambent attack the Sovereign and Dom shouts "You fucked up my tomatoes, you assholes!"

** Epic Games had originally planned to allow players to choose the gender of Dom, potentially making him into the female Dominique, but the idea was scrapped and female characters wouldn't become playable until ''Gears of War'' 3.

** Epic Games had originally planned to allow players to choose the gender of Dom, potentially making him into the female Dominique, but the idea was scrapped scrapped, as having two genders for Dom would've drastically increased the length of the script and limited the budget, so female characters wouldn't become playable until ''Gears of War'' 3.

Added DiffLines:

** Baird and Cole's roles were originally reversed, with Baird being the one who was a former sports star.
** Epic Games had originally planned to allow players to choose the gender of Dom, potentially making him into the female Dominique, but the idea was scrapped and female characters wouldn't become playable until ''Gears of War'' 3.
** The RousingSpeech given in the beginning of ''Gears of War'' 2 was originally supposed to be narrated by Hoffman, but he lost out when the developers created Prescott, as they felt the speech was better suited for him instead.
** Originally, Hoffman was supposed to die in ''Gears of War'' 3. He was supposed to come with Delta to acquire the submarine instead of Dizzy and would've died protecting it while it sailed off to Azura. However, Karen Traviss considered Hoffman one of the few people in the universe who had a historical perspective on the series (he could talk about the world before the war) and didn't want to lose him as a narrative vehicle for the books.
