** Examples: [[spoiler: 'Kill the Contact;' Kill him or spare him, its your choice. If you kill him, you get paid, he dies. If you don't, you don't get paid, and he is later killed while on vacation.]]
** [[spoiler:'Free Guns;' The bad one is to rob a guard station, causing the guard who comes in to die accidentally. The other is to leave the guns, then the guard sells them to the terrorist.]]

** Some of those decisions do work out the way you'd hope they would, sort of. [[spoiler:Not having the kid die to get you the sniper rifle means he goes home and rescues his parents. He's a bit traumatized, but they're safe. And sparing the tiger has it escape to kill a couple of robbers.]]

* BadAss: Salem and Rios try, but they come off more like fratboys than anything else a few times though.
** Surprisingly enough, they come off remarkably close to what one would actually see in a high-espirit unit like Marine First Force Recon. Read Literature/GenerationKill; Evan Wright's account of the Marines of 1st Recon in Iraq cuts ''very'' closely to how Salem and Rios act, especially their banter. Being aware of this is, for some, the single biggest piece of evidence that the game may be a StealthParody. The Generation Kill comparison is particularly amusing for the HoYay detailed below; one of the Marines featured hung a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] on it.

* EverythingIsOnline: So s3kshun8 can hack it. This is borderline subverted at times; for example, s3kshun8 can't hack a digital keypad, he has to take the model number and find the manufacturer's back door code.

The sequel, ''ArmyOfTwo: The 40th Day'', sees Salem and Rios travel to Shanghai, China for a seemingly simple contract and get caught up in a cataclysmic attack on the city. The game features numerous improvements, including massively expanded weapons customization, civilians to be rescued, moral choices and new co-op techniques like [[ISurrenderSuckers mock surrender.]]

* ConspiracyTheorist: Rios tends to sway into this realm during ''ArmyOfTwo'', and is mocked for it by Salem.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: The game is frequently criticized for having its protagonists act like fratboys. Anyone whose seen GenerationKill or is familiar with actual mercs (or even high-morale military units) knows that it's not that far off. Yes, even down to the HoYay.

* RegionCoding: Played straight with the XBox360 release of the game, but zigzagging with the PS3 release. The original intention was to have the PS3 version use regional lockout as well, but when a group of angry gamers protested with threats of boycott, EA was somewhat forced to eat their words. They still managed to get regional lockout into the multiplayer segments of the game tho- like it or not, you're going to have to play multiplayer in your region.

Added DiffLines:

* DrawAggro: A common way to win in the games is one of the players makes themselves a prime target so that the other player can sneak around and attack the enemies from the side or rear.

* LampshadeHanging: ''DevilsCartel'' makes several jokes about video games, including ExplodingBarrels, referenced by Bravo("Don't you know? red barrels always explode!")

Added DiffLines:

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The original game name-drops real world terrorist organizations like Al-Qaeda and Abu Sayyaf and is steeped heavily in themes from TheWarOnTerror.
