* RevolversAreJustBetter: The revolver is much more powerful than the semi-automatic pistol in both Half-Life 1 and 2, and perfectly accurate. Averted in ''Opposing Force'', where the Python is replaced with a Desert Eagle, which has the advantages of an extra round in the magazine, a LaserSight for even greater accuracy and a quicker reload time.

* BadassNormal: While Freeman, Shepard, Green and Cross have special powered armor suits, Barney Calhound was able to survive the Black Mesa incident and even travelling to Xen only wearing a common helmet and kevlar vest equipment. Extra points for Alyx for having no special protection at all and being able to fight alongside Gordon.

* SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness: The games tend to hand you the [[CrowbarCombatant crowbar]] first (Or the [[KnifeNut knife]] and [[WrenchWhack pipe wrench]] in ''Opposing Force''), then give you a [[{{Handguns}} 9mm pistol]], [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]], [[MoreDakka submachine gun]], [[StuffBlowingUp explosives]], [[HandCannon Magnum]], [[BFG rocket launcher]] and maybe some of the more exotic weapons either midgame or towards the end, depending on how powerful it is. ''Opposing Force'' plays around with this trope by giving you a [[HandCannon Desert Eagle]] ''before'' the 9mm.

Added DiffLines:

* AlienLandmass: Xen, the final level of the game, is a surreal alien landscape with floating, oddly-shaped landmasses and wonky physics that make it difficult to navigate.

** One of the deathmatch maps, [=Halls2=], is based of of a similarly constructed netplay level in the first ''{{VideoGame/Marathon}}'', Halls of Death. [=Halls3=] for ''VideoGame/HalfLife2: Deathmatch'' shows the same resemblance.

** A little for the overall franchise: You can play the original Half-Life [[DesignatedHero so sociopathically you make THE US MILITARY look nice by comparison,]] [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential killing every character you come across that isn't considered important by the story the second you get your hands on a weapon]] [[KickTheDog (including your fellow scientists)]], and yet by Half-Life 2 Gordon Freeman will be so highly revered the other characters consider him a messiah.
