* KillEmAll: Sarge's War. [[spoiler: Every major character in the series except for Sarge himself is dead by the end of the game. However, it is implied that Lord Malice either re-built the characters and had the clones waiting in life pods at the end, or actually kidnapped them before hand and replaced them with clones purely for Sarge's benefit to make him suffer, and had the actual characters themselves locked in stasis in the life pods.]]

** ''The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare'' takes it to the absolute extreme where each of the maps is it's own game mode with a ridiculous objective, Operation: Birthday plays two rounds with the attackers attempting to ignite the candles on the birthday cake with flamethrowers among other silly settings.

* ShoutOut: Pretty much a staple of the series later in it's run, both in level names and even villains. It was doing it as far back as the second game, where one two part mission was just one big shout out to Film/ApocalypseNow.

** Played completely straight in ''The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare'', the flamethrower has infinite ammo but shoots a tiny jet barely five feet in front of you with no spread to the point the [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]] is more effective. It's only real use is to ignite the candles as the attacking team on the Operation: Birthday map.

**In the same game here is a mission where you can bust a handful of Grey Soldiers out of prison cells. They are very prone to friendly fire and they have a tendency to set off alarms

** The original games had the BAR as an upgrade to your default weapon, which at least doubled the firing rate. Mean while, the M-60 was the extra lead thrower in the Sarge's Heroes games.

More recently, though canonically unrelated to this series, ''[[http://store.steampowered.com/app/360940 The Mean Greens - Plastic Warfare]]'' was released on UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} as a multiplayer-only game giving a LighterAndSofter take on the idea of plastic men in warfare with maps ranging from a simple team deathmatch on a TabletopRPG board, CaptureTheFlag in an aquarium or even a game of soccer on a foosball table.
