** Gandhi is a nuke-happy prick in most games but he's even worse in ''Civ 6''. In ''6'' leaders have a Leader Agenda which relates to their history such as "likes long time allies" for Sumeria or "hates small civs" for Rome and a hidden agenda such as wanting a lot of salt or needing more oil. Gandhi is a "Peacekeeper" (doesn't go into wars that label him a warmonger) while still being "Nuke Happy" (likes himself and others building/using nukes). This leads to him being a passive-aggressive shithead who will hate you for not having nukes well before you can have them, [[ExactWords attacks you in wars that won't label him a "warmonger"]] (especially in the Ancient Era where there is little chance of him being a warmonger), congratulate you for using nukes one turn and the very next denounces you for warmongering, and attacks you after starting things so he won't look bad in front of everyone else.

The general concept is that the player controls a civilization from the stone age through the present day into the space age. The first installments gave you two ways to win: conquering everyone, or [[VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri sending a colony to Alpha Centauri]]. Later, three more conditions were added: get elected leader of the world by the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations, controlling a dominant chunk of the planet (which kind of renders obsolete the "conquer everyone" goal, which is probably why it was removed again later), or create a culture so influential that it engulfs everyone else's.

** The ''V'' portrayal of OdaNobunaga is obviously a nod to {{Creator/Toshiro Mifune}}'s performance.

** UsefulNotes/CleopatraVII in the [[NintendoDS DS]] port of ''Revolution'' constantly makes flirty gestures (if the player's on good terms with her, at least).

* UnskilledButStrong: The AIs in higher difficulties don't really improve on their skills at all, rather they simply cheat by gaining more and more advantages the higher the difficulty you are while still falling trap to several ArtificialStupidity moments. The key to overcoming these difficulties is exploiting these flaws and use it to gain advantage against them.

* OpeningNarration: In the first game, this was used to cover the LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading. In ''IV'', it was brought back as a tribute... And recited by Creator/LeonardNimoy! ''V'' has W. Morgan Sheppard doing the opening narrations (there's one for every civ) as well as the quotes for when you research something.

In 'VI', Creator/SeanBean narrates, as well as voicing one of the characters in the opening cinematic. [[ChronicallyKilledActor Appropriately]], his character apparently dies in the Battle of Britain.
