** The tunnel and highway [[note]]which in an interesting sidenote is the road DoubleFine Studios named themselves after[[/note]] leading up to the Golden Gate Bridge are as accurate as they are futuristic. Not surprising, given Sledgehammer Games' presence in the Bay Area.

* MauveShirt: Will MatchCut: A rather neat one can be found in "Atlas". Jonathan Irons (Jonathan Irons' son introduces himself and Mitchell's best friend) dies at Atlas just as Mitchell prepares to leave Will's funeral. He hands Mitchell his digital business card, which shows the end of animated Atlas logo. Mitchell looks down at it, pondering whether or not to join Atlas, while the prologue level.three-volley salute sounds in the background. Just as the third volley is fired, the screen cuts to Mitchell during an operation, looking down at his assault rifle marked with the Atlas logo, showing that he joined Atlas, the logo matching up with the business card. The transition is covered by the thunderclap and the lightning making everything white, and the volley matches the thunder too.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Will Irons (Jonathan Irons' son and Mitchell's best friend) is introduced at the start of the prologue level and dies at the end of the same level. His death is one of the biggest motivating factors in the game for multiple characters.

** GrapplingHookPistol: The Grapple attachment does this (it can also be used to pull enemies towards you [[MortalKombat Scorpion]]-style). Notably it is not limited to pre-scripted use (unlike in ''Black Ops II''); you can use it freely during gameplay, similar to the ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'' games, but it's only available in a couple of levels and a single playlist in multiplayer.

* BigBad: Hades, the leader of the KVA, seeks to halt humanity's technological progress and revert it to a 'natural state' with terrorist attacks all over the world.
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler:Jonathan Irons turns into this after Hades is killed, who was aware of the KVA's world-wide attack on major cities but let it occur in order for Atlas to pick up the remains and make itself the dominant military power. He attempts to flat out TakeOverTheWorld thereafter.]]

* MiniMecha: [=AST=]s, bipedal mech suits with mini-guns for arms, similar to those seen in the ''RedFaction'', ''VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon'', or ''{{Section 8}}''. They very much serve as BossInMooksClothing encounters.

* HeavilyArmoredMook[=/=]EliteMooks: Hades has a handful of [[PraetorianGuard personal bodyguards]] wearing some sort of high-tech armor (not an exo-suit, as it lacks the mechanical components and makes a distinct electronic noise) that lets them withstand about half a magazine of assault rifle fire before falling. [[spoiler: Later in the game, Atlas deploys red-armored elite exo-suits with similar damage-soaking capabilities.]]

* TotalitarianUtilitarian: Jonathan Irons acknowledges that he could not have achieved his power outside of a democratic country, but he also points out that ''every'' attempt by the United States to install democracy in ''any'' foreign country has been a ''total failure'' - and feels that though democracy in America is the source of its prosperity, it's [[YourDaysAreNumbered not going to last]] for the same reason it has failed to take root overseas; it doesn't work unless the majority of the citizenry are tolerant of religious, political and social differences, concepts that are nonexistent in third-world countries and on the decline in first-world nations. Once tolerance gives way to fear, people ''will'' surrender freedom for security - and isn't that what PrivateMilitaryContractors like Atlas provide?

* TotalitarianUtilitarian: Jonathan Irons strongly believes that implementation of democracy has failed in many countries, and feels that though democracy in America is the source of its prosperity, it's [[YourDaysAreNumbered not going to last]], meaning people will need strong law and order with an iron fist. He uses previous examples of failed attempts to install democracies by the United States as examples, and says that security is more important than democracy.
