* AlternateHistory: ''Beyond Castle Wolfenstein'''s premise is based on the July 20th plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler with a bomb, except that the agent is actually ''successful'' in killing him.[[spoiler:..or is he?]]

* DoomedByCanon: It's implied in the hint-book for ''[[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D Spear of Destiny]]'' that the events of ''Beyond Castle Wolfenstein'' did happen in id Software's continuity, but Adolf Hitler survived, meaning that the Allied Soldier's mission was ultimately a failure (as it was in real life).

Added DiffLines:

* BlatantItemPlacement: Ammunition, explosives, uniforms, armor, food, drink, and even plans for military operations are placed in identical containers that are scattered throughout the castle with no rhyme or reason.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Due to the randomly-generated nature of ''Castle Wolfenstein'', there's a chance that there will be a container carrying grenades, armor, a disguise, or even the [[MacGuffin war plans]] in the cell the Nazis placed you in.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialStupidity: The regular guards (including SS Stormtroopers that had their body armor removed) make no attempt to follow you into another room, and when you come back and you're wearing a uniform, they completely forget that you were just shooting at them a few seconds ago.


Added DiffLines:

* BottomlessMagazines: Averted. Both you and the Nazis are given a maximum of ten bullets to use. After they run out of ammunition, the guards will run after you and try to capture you.

* DoNotRunWithAGun: Averted. The protagonist and the Nazis can all move while firing their guns at the same time.



** The Nazis in these games are straightforward and realistic in portrayal, lacking any hint of the [[StupidJetpackHitler advanced technology]] or [[{{Ghostapo}} supernatural elements]] that would define them in later installments.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: 2D top-down perspective, stealth-based gameplay, RandomlyGeneratedLevels, Atari-esque graphics, and [[DamnYouMuscleMemory twin joystick controls]]? Not something you'd expect from the series that helped put the first-person shooter genre on the map. Not only that, but the Nazis also lack any hint of [[StupidJetpackHitler advanced technology]] or [[{{Ghostapo}} supernatural activity]] whatsoever.
