* AluminumChristmasTrees: Yes, guns ''can'' shoot in space. And yes, there ''do'' exist guns that were specifically designed to fire bullets while underwater.

* DiabolusExMachina:[[spoiler: The game ends with Hesh and Logan, badly injured, finally able to kill Rorke, and savoring US's victory over the Federation, [[KillSat namely turning their own LOKI satellite on them]]. Logan turns for a breath, only to see [[NotQuiteDead Rorke himself]], brutally beating them up and taking away Logan to turn him into a loyal [[ManchurianAgent Federation Agent]]. Hesh's pleading screams don't help the matter.]]



* IdiotBall: In "All or Nothing", the ''lands helicopters'' on an American aircraft carrier while the carrier's crew and escort ships all apparently forget how to use their point defenses.



** During the defense of Santa Monica, Logan takes control of drone A-10 fighters at several points in order to keep attacking Federation soldiers at bay. However, on one run, the drone he's controlling gets shot down and it crashes into drone control, effectively causing Santa Monica's defenses to collapse.

** AlternateContinuity: ''Ghosts'' is the only ''Call of Duty'' game that explicitly rules out being in the same continuity as the other games in the series[[note]]the timelines of the ''Modern Warfare'' and ''Black Ops'' trilogies -- counting ''World at War'', for which ''Black Ops'' is explicitly a sequel -- don't directly contradict each other, and one of the ''Black Ops'' Intel files ''hints'' at mentioning ''Modern Warfare''[='=]s Captain Price; returning the favor, Lev Kravchenko was mentioned in ''[=MW3=]'' as a former associated of Makarov's[[/note]].

** AlternateContinuity: ''Ghosts'' is explicitly independent from both of the only previous non-historical ''Call of Duty'' timelines, ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' and ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps Black Ops]]''. With its StillbornFranchise status, it is pretty much a fully independent game that explicitly rules out being in the same continuity as the with no storyline connection to any other games in the series[[note]]the timelines ''Call of the ''Modern Warfare'' and ''Black Ops'' trilogies -- counting ''World at War'', for which ''Black Ops'' is explicitly a sequel -- don't directly contradict each other, and one of the ''Black Ops'' Intel files ''hints'' at mentioning ''Modern Warfare''[='=]s Captain Price; returning the favor, Lev Kravchenko was mentioned in ''[=MW3=]'' as a former associated of Makarov's[[/note]].Duty'' games.

* [[YanksWithTanks Yanks with Tanks....and GHOSTS!]]: Well what did you think an InvadedStatesOfAmerica storyline would feature...the Germans?

Added DiffLines:

* InterfaceScrew: There are a couple of instances in which the game's Y-axis controls are flipped without warning,[[note]]at least for those playing with the Y-axis inverted by default[[/note]] notably when controlling the shipboard missile turret and the hand launched mini-torpedo.

* BaitAndSwitchGunshot: Early in "Sin City" Hesh is about to be executed, the screen fades to white and a shot is heard... fade back in to reveal the would-be executioner has been hit by sniper fire.


Added DiffLines:

* ContinueYourMissionDammit: In "Sin City" Hesh will constantly remind the player to "Pick up Riley!" if the player is not actively carrying him, regardless of the number of enemies present. Note that the player is defenseless while carrying Riley.

* BlackAndWhiteMorality: The Federation are explicitly genocidal savages who, inexplicably, incorporate a number of resurrected YellowPeril tropes including "exotic Amazonian torture methods" and [[ManchurianAgent Manchurian agents]]. One of the first things we see Federation soldiers doing is executing civilians in the first level. Meanwhile, the Ghosts are, well, standard ''[=CoD=]'' protagonists, even being less morally ambiguous than the SAS/Task Force 141 from ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare''.
** Most telling is what both sides do when they [[spoiler: commandeer their enemy's [[KillSat orbiting Kill Sats]]. The Federation launches kinetic rods at American cities, killing 27 million innocent people in a matter of minutes. They were targeting additional cities for destruction when Mosley and Baker destroyed the ODIN satellite, it's implied they were ready and willing to glass EVERY major city in North America. No military targets are ever mentioned. In contrast, when the Americans take control of LOKI, they only attack Federation military forces directly engaged in combat with them at sea or in the middle of the desert.]]
