* [[spoiler:TheBadGuyWins]]: [[spoiler: The Agency is [[TheReveal revealed]] to have been supplying the gangs of Pacific City with weapons and resources in order to create the very problem that the Agency would be brought in to stop. This supposedly helps the Agency generate [[VillainWithGoodPublicity good publicity]] for themselves and high public demand for their services after the player eliminates the gangs.]]

It's taken years of meticulous planning and patience to reach this stage, but it was worth it. Who do you think supplied Los Muertos? Who do you think turned a blind eye to the Volk's activities? Who do you think was Shai-Gen's biggest supporter? Who do you think ran organized law-enforcement, and ran it into the ground?\\

* BigBad: The Gang leaders in the first game and Catllina Thorne in the sequel. [[spoiler: It's actually [[EvilAllAlong The Director]] in both.]]



* MissionControl: The Director serves as this in both games.

* SequelHook: ''Crackdown 2'' ends with one. See TheStinger, below. Of course, since ''3'' puts the game into CanonDiscontinuity, it's [[AbortedArc won't be followed up on]].



* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler:Collecting all the audio logs turns the plot right on its head. Catalina did ''not'' release the Freak Virus, ''The Agency'' did accidently during the battle against Balthazar in the first game. She tried to warn them that the Virus shouldn't be messed with, but the Agency ignored her, fired her, and conducted experiments with the Virus, leading directly to the outbreak. Oh, and they actually ''do'' have a cure, but refuse to release it in favor of Project Sunburst, which is actually a WMD designed to destroy anyone the Agency doesn't like.]]

-->'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg9edhb4OBs Agency Director]]''': [[spoiler:Congratulations Agent, peace at last... You overthrew the world's most evil criminal masterminds and their dominant empires. You have returned law and order to Pacific City. You gave the people back their lives. Thank you.\\

The people had to experience absolute anarchy, before they would accept unconditional control. You are the portent of a New World Order, Agent. Pacific City was only the beginning.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BilingualBonus: Los Muertos and the Volk both speak their native tongues (Spanish and Russian), which results in players who speak said languages becoming aware of just how many times the Agent gets called a "fucker".
** Also applies to the gangs names (Los Muertos = The Dead, Volk = Wolf), but the Director helpfully supplies translations in briefing videos.


Added DiffLines:

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: The Director often refers to Los Muertos as "The Los Muertos." Translated, that makes them "The The Dead."


Added DiffLines:

* EarlyBirdCameo: While running through the Agency training course in the beginning of the second game, you pass through a garage, where you can see every single Agency vehicle you'll get to unlock.


Added DiffLines:

* LaughingMad: Los Muertos often cackle insanely in the middle of gunfights, quite likely as a result of their gang's propensity for hard drugs. It also emphasizes the lack of professionalism among their goons, as they aren't trained soldiers like the Volk or Shai-Gen's thugs.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Despite the Agency orchestrating the police state-ification of Pacific City and crushing those who stand against them with extreme prejudice, the Director still does ''not'' approve when you kill innocent civilians.

Added DiffLines:

** The guns you get early on are pretty modest in stopping power, and the aiming reticule can be finicky. The easiest way to deal with low-level gang members, then, is to run straight at them and melee them to death.
