* BossInMooksClothing: The [=AST=] MiniMecha serve as this in both the campaign and survival mode. They have an arm-mounted minigun, a shoulder-mounted rocket launcher, and can survive more than 100 rounds of automatic weapons fire before dropping. You only ever fight them directly a handful of times, and on "Terminus" you can one-hit-kill them by yanking the pilot out the rear hatch using your grappling hook.



* InformedAbility: Enemy exo-suit users in the campaign do not use ''any'' of the cool exo-suit abilities you have access to, with the sole exception of the basic boost jump ability. They're not even noticeably better armored than the low-tech [=KVA=] goons (with the exception of the fairly rare red-armored EliteMooks). Enemies in Exo Survival use boost dodging in addition to the boost jump, and a special class of enemies also uses the cloak mode, but that's pretty much it.

* WorldWarIII: Well, openly [[spoiler:threatening the United Nations by confirming you developed a superweapon]] is probably not going to win many friends...

** "Terminus", the final level of the campaign, opens with [[spoiler:a frontal assault consisting entirely of two men wielding the heaviest weapons and armor in the game, who make their way into the enemy stronghold under radio guidance from a friendly NPC and destroy an aircraft only to have their heavy equipment disabled by the crashing aircraft. The NPC is then incapacitated, leaving the player to engage the BigBad alone in a quick-time event.]] Doesn't that remind you of Dust to Dust from Modern Warfare 3?

** [[spoiler: Irons]] knows that even with the power his forces can bring to bear, he can't possibly stand toe-to-toe with the might of the United States Navy. So rather than fight them head on, he instead decides to [[DroppedABridgeOnHim drop a bridge on them.]] [[spoiler: ''Literally'', as in dropping the Golden Gate Bridge down on top of the core of the U.S Pacific Fleet so he can pick them apart with cargo ships converted into warships.]]

Executing clandestine operations across the globe for the highest bidder, Mitchell and his Atlas team seek to destroy the KVA and restore order to the world, but everything changes when they [[TheConspiracy uncover the dark secret of Atlas]].

** There's quite a lot of TruthInTelevision when Irons criticizes the United States' inability to bring peace and democracy to the Third World due to flawed policies, as countries with little in the way of democratic practices in their histories tend toward other systems or adapt democracy to their own systems instead, rendering the changes often useless or temporary. His criticism of them as only causing wars that lead to more wars for the past century (by the time of the game, that reaches back to approximately WorldWarII) also strikes a chord.

* DemocracyIsBad: Jonathan Irons seems to believe that the Third World simply is incapable of supporting democracy. [[StrawmanHasAPoint He makes a good point]] in that by definition, undeveloped countries lack the concepts necessary for it; freedom of religion, freedom of the press, even basic freedom of ''speech'' - and that new democracies have ''never'' been created through outside pressure. He's still all but a CardCarryingVillain, as he also [[SmugSnake smugly]] states that even America itself is an anomaly, because [[LetNoCrisisGoToWaste in times of chaos]], humanity will eagerly embrace [[TotalitarianUtilitarian a good ol' firm-but-fair iron fist]] - which he just so happens to be able to provide via his [[PrivateMilitaryContractors PMC]], Atlas. Not to mention the [[spoiler: mass murder through biological warfare which factors into his plans to achieve his goals]].

* BondVillainStupidity: [[spoiler: Johnathan Irons]] has ''multiple'' opportunities to kill Mitchell and his squadmates. At best, he simply [[spoiler: shoots Cormack so he'll slowly bleed to death and disables Mitchell's arm.]] Not shockingly, Mitchell and Co. easily escape after he leaves. Most egregiously, at the end of the game, [[spoiler: Irons literally has an unarmed, disabled Mitchell at his mercy and actively refuses to shoot him, declaring it's because he's "not a monster." Less than two minutes later, Mitchell [[DisneyVillainDeath throws him off a skyscraper]].]]
