* AbortedArc: This game was meant to kickstart the spiritual successor series of the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' trilogy in tone and gameplay. However, the game ended up selling way less than ''Videogame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' and its reception was mostly mixed due to it not taking or improving anything from its predecessor and implementing some pace-breaking design choices, prompting Infinity Ward to develop the quasi-successor to ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare'' and ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3'' (gameplay & aesthetics-wise) and sub-series kickstart: ''VideoGame/InfiniteWarfare''. Leaving players with an incomplete story and SuddenDownerEnding with no follow up or ending.

* GreaterScopeVillain: The President of Venezuela aka "The Boss" who is the leader of the Federation. Though Rorke is the Big Bad responsible for the plot, it's revealed in the rorke files that he's taking orders from him.He's also the one who ordered him to capture Logan so he can be turned into a ManchurianAgent.Though he never physically appears in the game.It is likely he will be in the sequel.



* ManbehindtheMan: while Rorke is leading the Federation military forces,Its made clear he's not the leader and even reveals in his flies that he's taking orders from his superior who just so happens to be "The Boss".



* TheDreaded: In the Rorke flies Rorke mentions that his "Boss" has no problem getting rid of his soldiers to capture another ghost.



* TheGhost: The leader of the entire Federation is mentioned a few times in the collectible intel items,but is never seen or referred to by name in the game.Rorke seems to hold him in great respect though,indicating he's a pretty dangerous dude.

* [[spoiler: TheStinger: After getting captured by Rorke, the last thing shown after the credits is of Logan being imprisoned in a hole in the Amazon.]]

* BiggerBad: Arguably the Ancestors in the grand scheme of things, as they are bringing about [[TitleDrop the extinction]] of the human race. They can command the different Cryptid species, take an insane amount of damage - comparable to a Breeder or Kraken - and have powerful psychic abilities. And they can form a barrier that negates any damage...

* MooksButNoBosses: While ''Call of Duty'' has always been generally conservative when it comes to enemy variety, ''Ghosts'' is by far the most extreme example in the modern series, with the only enemy type in the single player campaign being basic enemy soldiers, without even the snipers, ShieldBearingMook, or HeavilyArmoredMook enemies seen in other games in the series.

** The start of the battle to capture the Federation Space station is remarkably similar to the space battle in Moonraker

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Besides the obligatory vehicle sections, ''Ghosts'' mixes things up a bit with an underwater scuba level and a final battle in outer space, apparently drawing inspiration from the James Bond films ''Thunderball'' and '' Moonraker'' respectively.

** The level "The Hunted" is a call back to the mission "Hunted" from ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. Both levels are stealth-focused, with the player and his team trying to evade enemy patrols after being shot down over hostile territory.



** The Federation commandos' rescue of Rorke is pulled from [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises]].
