** While ''Gears of War '' 4 takes place after the trilogy, the tutorial level is essentially a Prequel to the entire series and takes the player through a battle in the Pendulum Wars, the introduction of the Locust on Emergence Day and the acquisition of the Hammer of Dawn targeting data.

* Prequel: ''Gears of War: Judgement'' is one, taking place about 15 years before the first game and only six weeks after Emergence Day.

* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: At a time when other FPS games had shotgun/assault rifles mainstays but with common energy weapons for heavy hitting, the makers of Gears took a different route by making energy weapons nonexistent to both sides except for the Hammer of Dawn satellite. The reasoning according to the PC version instruction manual, is that our contemporary gun technology is already very effective and it seemed likely that even centuries from now, there'd be little need for anything else except to augment the standard gun with future technology.

** The computer's stupidity is the only possible explanation for how the Locust and Lambent, two VERY intelligent and murderous species, will completely break fire from actual gears to target the decoys you build in Horde mode. These two are genuinely fooled by '''cardboard celebrity cutouts and mannequins!''' In-Universe, the Locust and Lambent are incredibly dangerous and most certainly do not fall for such obvious-looking traps. You'd figure that after fighting an enemy for decades, you'd have a good idea of what they look like. [[WildMassGuessing That, or maybe they attack the decoys because they need points like you do]]!
