* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Mason averts the total extermination of America at the last moment and kills the three BigBads, but he killed JFK five years before and eventually is marked for termination along with Hudson and Weaver.]]

Added DiffLines:
* MisplacedAccent: The Angolan soldiers in the second game speak Brazilian Portuguese, which is probably even more jarring than having a supposedly British character speaking like they're from LA. While the Portuguese used in Angola is not 100% identical to that used in Portugal, they would still be close enough.

Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: To counter people using modded controllers in ''Black Ops'', the semiautomatic battle rifles will actually jam if the trigger is pressed too fast. It is possible to fire fast enough without the aid of controller mods to trigger this as well, typically with high amounts of lag. ** At the main menu, [[spoiler: Mason can escape his chair and access the computer terminal behind him. Most players will only use the terminal to play ''VideoGame/{{Zork}}'' or play Dead Ops Arcade, but you can also look at Mason's e-mail and other things such as concept art and music. The kicker? Initially, you are logged on as Alex Mason. You can also log on as any other major American character in the game, including Presidents [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy Kennedy]], [[UsefulNotes/LyndonJohnson Johnson]] and [[UsefulNotes/RichardNixon Nixon]], and access their e-mail and files ([[GuideDangIt as long as you know their usernames and passwords]]). They went so far as to include Directors of the CIA and Henry Kissinger in there, as well as Macbeth's monologue before killing Duncan (they even use what actors call Macbeth, namely "Mackers") in there. To reiterate: Treyarch took the time to add a myriad of {{Easter Egg}}s to an area that many players wouldn't even look at, let alone try to access.]] '''''[[DoingItForTheArt Damn.]]'''''

* HappyEndingOverride: [[spoiler: The Russian campaign in ''World at War'' ended on a pretty triumphant note, with Reznov and Dimitri looking forward to returning to Russia as heroes despite the latter's wounds (and the odds were in favor of his survival anyway, given that he was established as being MadeOfIron). As ''Black Ops'' establishes, things...didn't quite work out that way. Dimitri did in fact emerge from the ordeal none the worse for wear, but only so he could end up [[CruelAndUnusualDeath serving as a test subject for Nova 6]]; Reznov bitterly notes that it would've been better if he ''had'' died in Berlin, since at least then his death would've meant something. Reznov himself was betrayed by his corrupt superiors (and by extension, the country he'd served so faithfully), and thrown in a gulag to rot, with only his thirst for revenge keeping him from succumbing to despair.]]

* HeavilyArmoredMook: Enemies wearing heavy body armor[=/=]riot gear appear about halfway through the second mission, the prison break from Vorkuta. Several appear guarding the NumberStation control room at the very end of the game, also. They carry shotguns and machine guns, and advance slowly instead of running or using cover; basically they're this game's equivalent of ''Modern Warfare 2''[='=]s Spec Ops-only Juggernauts. While not on par with their ridiculous toughness, they can still withstand about half a mag of assault rifle fire or multiple close-range shotgun blasts before dropping, which is pretty impressive given that every other enemy in the game drops after only a small handful of bullets.

* ConvenientlyInterruptedDocument: Every mission opens with a summary, before black ink smears out everything except the viewpoint character, the location, and time.

Fair enough, though compared to both the Nazi Diehards and the Soviets they qualify as Heroic, and the original Captain Price is treated as a white hat (compared to his MW incarnation/relative).
Added DiffLines:
* HeroAntagonist: [[spoiler:The SAS soldiers in the second half of "Project Nova"]], certainly in comparison to the other factions involved.

* DirtyCommunists: Dragovich in his own twisted way, aims to bring America under Communism. [[spoiler:Though it's left ambiguous whether he really did go rogue against his own government or the Soviets at large quietly went along with his scheme.]]

Added DiffLines:
* SovietSuperscience: Subverted. Although Nova 6 was originally created as a Nazi ''Wunderwaffe'', it's been refined and enhanced with Soviet backing.
