* ShanghaiCooperationOrganisation: Taking on a life of its own, to the point where it is an army unto itself whose chairman is preparing for war with the United States and is trying to pressure other Asian countries into joining it. The Chinese government can no longer control it. [[spoiler: However, they're just puppets of Menendez. China can become JSOC's allies if you complete all Strike Force missions and assassinate their leader]].

*** It's just a futuristic version. VTOL (Vertical TakeOff/Landing) has been pretty standard for a while.

* DarkhorseVictory: A meta-and-semi-example; The WiiU Version actually received better scores on GameRankings than the PS3 version, and comes close to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions in Metacritic and other reviewer sites. Notably, it comes with all features of the other versions of the game (sans minor things like Achievements and live recording), and due to the nature of the controller, has an ideal layout for two-player split-screen play.

The game was released on November 13, 2012 for the PC, {{Xbox 360}}, and {{Playstation 3}}, with a November 18 release for the WiiU in North America, and November 30 for the WiiU in Europe. The first trailer can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=x3tedlWs1XY here]]. It received mostly positive reviews from critics, who liked the branching story paths and idea of Strike Forces missions, even if the latter's AI was criticized.

Coinciding with the release of the main game is ''Call of Duty: Black Ops: Declassified'', a GaidenGame for the PlaystationVita that fills in the gap between the first and second Black Ops games. It was negatively received universally for its rushed mechanics and sloppy AI as well as having a plot that failed to live up to its premise.

* [[RenegadeRussian Renegade Chinese]]: It's explicitly stated China's Strategic Defense Coalition is run by a renegade who doesn't answer to the rest of China's politburo, and makes unauthorized attacks on neighboring countries to force them into China's alliance. [[spoiler:If the SDC's attacks are repelled, China eventually has enough and personally asks the US to take out said renegade, Tian Zhao. Good thing, too: Zhao was in cahoots with Menendez and was preparing to meet with him]].

* MeaningfulEcho: If Mason and Woods discovered the existence of the CIA mole in "Old Wounds" and "Time and Fate", [[spoiler:Kravchenko's]] line about it, "He even has people in the CIA", is remembered by Woods when Hudson tells him to make the shot on the hostage, [[spoiler:who turns out to be Alex]].

* MisplacedAccent: The Angolan soldiers in the first mission 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.



* TheMole: There are three major moles. [[spoiler: Farid]] is the US' mole in Cordis Die, [[spoiler: Salazar]] is Cordis Die's main mole in the Navy [=SEALs=], while in the 1980's missions [[spoiler: Jason Hudson]] might be Menendez's mole within the CIA. Depending on how you treat a SadisticChoice, the former's cover can be kept intact, the latter will always help Menendez [[spoiler: destroy the ''USS Obama'']], while [[spoiler: Hudson]] will be killed [[PlotlineDeath no matter what]], although his treachery is hinted at [[GuideDangIt if you pick up a certain piece of intel early in the game]].
* MoneyDearBoy: In-universe, during the 1980s portion of the game, Soviet national [[spoiler: Kravchenko]] is selling Russian weapons to Menendez, which Woods calls him out on:

Added DiffLines:

* ActionGirl: Some of the soldiers in Strike Force missions are voiced by Michelle Rodriguez, definitively qualifying them for this trope.
** Chloe Lynch [[spoiler:AKA Karma]] is rescued in the Strike Force mission "Second Chance" and can be controlled by the player.
