* DressingAsTheEnemy: During Operation Clockwork, Logan and the other Ghosts disguise themselves as Federation soldiers in order to infiltrate a base and steal data. As a result, the player needs to fire only a couple shots in the entire first half of the mission.

* {{Homage}}: A few players have noted that ''Ghosts'' has several similarities to ''Film/StarWars''. Both feature good guys fighting for freedom against an explicitly evil empire (the Federation), Rourke is a former hero has fallen to the dark side similar to Darth Vader, and Elias Walker fills the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The game even has its own Death Star subsitutes in the form of kinetic weapons satellites.

* 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.

* 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.]]

** 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.
