* CopyProtection: In an early example of Ubisoft's rather draconian attitudes toward possible software piracy, the game would refuse to start if it detected certain CD copying or emulation programs on the system. It went further than just not letting you simultaneously run the game and the tools in question, however -- the game would actually demand that you ''uninstall'' any tools it thought could be used for piracy. [[FromBadToWorse Made worse]] if the tools in question did a less-than-perfect uninstallation, which would require you to trawl through the registry and Program Files directory in order to satisfy the game's demands. Or, alternatively, you could just use a hacked executable.

There was also TheMovie ''Film/FarCry'' made by... Creator/UweBoll. Most notable in that Stuttering Craig and Handsome Tom of ''Website/ScrewAttack'' are in it (Though not in the main, cut feature).

* EliteMooks: The gasmask-wearing Elite Mercenaries in ''Far Cry'', armed with the best weapons and armor and possessing superior tactics and thermal-vision goggles. These guys can take about half a mag of assault rifle fire to kill, compared to just a few shots for the standard enemy {{Mooks}}.
** They appear in the last 2 levels of ''Far Cry Instincts'', too. There's also the Alpha Trigen Soldiers; you fight a few dozen of them just before the final boss fight. Both of these enemy types also have a 50% damage bonus to their bullets, which means they can kill you much faster than you can kill them.

* MeleeATrois: Jack vs. Mercs vs. Trigens. Mercs vs. Soldier Trigen fights are pretty static, though, since AI [=NPCs=] do dramatically reduced damage to other AI [=NPCs=], so if you just hide and wait for them to kill each other you'll be waiting a LONG time.

* NintendoHard: Like most games from that era, there is no RegeneratingHealth (on the PC version at least). Unlike most games from that era, health and armor pickups are actually somewhat rare, and even at full health and armor you can't survive very much damage at all (dying after only several bullet hits). The game is geared towards being played steathily, and trying to rambo your way through will often get you killed badly.

* OneManArmy: Jack Carver. Enemy mooks speculate about how one person could not possibly pull off the stunts he does. However, his GenreSavvy allies Val and Doyle both expect and demand that he be a OneManArmy on a regular basis.

Added DiffLines:

* WaterfallShower: After dealing with Crowe, a cutscene shows Valerie taking a shower on waterfall as she tells Jack the CIA's involvement on Krieger's work.
* WhamLine: After defeating Krieger, Jack demands to know the whereabouts of the antidote for his and Valerie's ongoing Trigen mutation. Krieger then tells him [[spoiler:that "the mutagen can only be administered through subdermal injection" before dying. This reveals that Doyle is a traitor, as he had previously instructed Jack to take the said injection as a ''vaccine'' to the mutation]].
