** Roger, the poor interviewer debriefing Alcatraz in ''Legion''. It's clear from the narration that Roger is asking Alactraz questions as certain points, as we'll see Alactraz pause and respond ("So anyway...I'm sorry? Oh, you meant the [x], no, I was talking about the [y]..."), but he doesn't actually have any printed lines of dialogue, forcing the reader to guess at his questions based on Alcatraz's reactions.

* InterfaceScrew: Happens frequently whenever you encounter the Ceph, or when someone or something disables your Nanosuit.



** The novel ''Crysis: Escalation'' also bridges the 20-year gap between Crysis 2 and 3, explaining [[spoiler: the fate of Alcatraz]] and how CELL was able to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over.]]

** Averted. The second AI in the Nanosuit 2 does its job of keeping the operator informed and alive and the suit functions integrated so well that even its ''creators'' are dumbstruck. It's stated that, by the end of the events in ''Crysis 2'', the suit and its AI are so deeply connected with Alcatraz, that most of his thought processes happen outside of his skull. Watts adds that it not only made him smarter and gave him new skills, it ''[[MoreThanMindControl altered his mind so he enjoyed the process.]]''

* AncientAstronauts: [[spoiler: The Ceph first came to Earth millions of years ago, colonizing the planet as a kind of nature preserve, then went into stasis while all of their subterranean structures went dormant. Now, they're awake and are not happy with what humans have done to their 'carefully tended garden' world.]]



* MeaningfulEcho: In Crysis 2, Prophet's last words to Alcatraz before [[spoiler:killing himself are "They used to call me Prophet. Remember me." Then, in Crysis:Escalation, when Alcatraz surrenders permanent control of his body to Prophet, his last words are "They called me Alcatraz. Remember me."]]

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Jacob Hargreave certainly thinks so, and he believes that the rest of humanity is too stupid, short sighted, or combative to effectively fight against the Ceph, forcing him to take matters into his own hands. On the other hand, he repeatedly expresses admiration for the Ceph's ecological recovery efforts and tactics in wiping out humanity. Doesn't stop him from investing all of his time and resources into fighting against them, though that may have more to do with [[ItsAllAboutMe saving himself]] than saving everyone else.
--> '''Gould''': What have you done old man? They're here!
--> '''Hargreave''': That's right, Nathan! The owners are back! Waking the systems, firing up the boiler. Back to spring-clean the old family residence, and not much liking what they've found festering behind the fridge. Can you blame them, really?

* IgnoredExpert: Both Dr. Rosenthal and his daughter Helena are ignored by General Kyong and Admiral Morrison, respectively. And both times, it only [[FromBadToWorse makes things worse.]]



* MeaningfulEcho: In Crysis 2, Prophet's last words to Alcatraz before [[spoiler:killing himself are "They used to call me Prophet. Remember me." Then, in Crysis:Escalation, when Alcatraz surrenders permanent control of his body to Prophet, his last words are "They called me Alcatraz. Remember me."]]



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Dr. Rosenthal, when he reluctantly gives Kyong the means to open the 'temple' (actually the alien ship) on Lingshan Island.



* ThemeNaming: In ''Crysis 2'', the Marine Force Recon team sent in at the beginning of the game are all named after famous prisons - the player is Alcatraz, one of your main gameplay allies is named Chino, and the other Marines are Folsom, Leavenworth, etc.

Added DiffLines:

* WhoWantsToLiveForever: [[spoiler:After several decades spent living in a jar-like life support module with no direct human contact, Jacob Hargreave who has set his headquarters to self destruct, admits in his final transmission to Alcatraz that he's looking forward to finally dying.]]
--> [[spoiler:'''Hargreave''': To tell the truth, I think I had enough of afterlives as it is - this one has been pretty purgatorial. Almost fifty years floating in supercooled jelly like some medical specimen, thoughts creeping like rats through cramped silicon corridors of machines trapped behind video screens and camera systems. Never sleeping, never resting, never ceasing to think about the world I no longer belong to. No, if this is a taste of the afterlife, I think simple oblivion will do nicely.]]

* ColonelBadass: USMC Major Strickland in the first game, and Colonel Lionel Barclay in the second.



** The Nanosuit 2 does this to [[spoiler:Alcatraz when Hargreave tries to rip him out of the suit, using Prophet's face and voice no less.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Prophet''':]] Wake up, marine! This is no time for dying. Get your ass back in the fight!



* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Major Strickland faces off against a Ceph Hunter in ''Crysis'' to buy time for Nomad and his marines to escape in a VTOL.]]



* Interquel: The ''Crysis'' comic shows the immediate aftermath of the first game, provides allot of backstory for Prophet and his [[spoiler: recruitment by Hargreave, and most importantly explains [[KilledOffscreen why Nomad and Helena are absent from the rest of the series]].]]
** The novel ''Crysis: Escalation'' also bridges the 20-year gap between Crysis 2 and 3, explaining [[spoiler: the fate of Alcatraz]] and how CELL was able to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over.]]



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Halfway through ''Crysis 3'', [[spoiler: Prophet shuts down CELL's global power source, not realizing that their system was actually keeping the Alpha Ceph dormant. Naturally, the Alpha Ceph wakes up and everything goes to Hell.]]

to:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Admiral Morrison and the USN's attempt to [[spoiler: nuke the Ceph Ice Sphere only makes it larger, and makes the Ceph ''allot'' angrier.]]

* NGOSuperpower: By the time of ''Crysis 3'', CELL essentially owns the entire planet, thanks to their monopoly on electricity following the depletion of all other Earth energy resources (they're pretty much [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Shinra Inc]], with about as much of a moral compass). It appears that world governments still exist, but CELL is essentially able to do whatever it wants (including enslaving most of the population with monetary debt schemes, and even nuking major cities) because they're simply too big to fail.

--> '''Hargreave''': They wipe us out, they break us down, they reduce the environmental impact almost to zero. Exemplary.
