* {{Expy}}: Buck has been described by some reviewers as "[[Series/{{Firefly}} Mal Reynolds]] [[XMeetsY as a]] SpaceMarine". They usually add that this is not necessarily a bad thing. He's even portrayed by [[Creator/NathanFillion the same actor]]!

* ChekovsGun: At the beginning of the game, Romeo is given a sniper rifle and complains that it won't be of much use inside a Covenant ship. Not long after, Romeo uses it to snipe an Engineer that was attacking Buck.

* ArtificialBrilliance: You know the cop in the sub levels that fights alongside you[[spoiler:, and attempts to betray you, being a DirtyCop]]? Well, it turns out that this cop is one {{badass}} AI. I mean, he's been reported to actually Halo-jump ''out of the way'' of oncoming melee attacks, and is stated by prolific LetsPlay maker [=SSoPHKC=] to be "the greatest cop who ever lived".

* UnderratedAndOverleveled: If one stops to think about it, all the characters are this. The main ''Halo'' franchise focuses on a BadAss SuperSoldier who was picked from the best of the best, trained from childhood, underwent expensive and dangerous procedures to enhance his physical and mental abilities, and given PoweredArmor equipped with shield technology stolen from the enemy. The characters in this game are...well trained soldiers. They ''are'' implied to be incredibly skilled even when compared to the rest of the highly elite [[ItsRainingMen ODSTs]], but they are ''not'' super soldiers. However, the game engine is the same as ''Halo 3'', meaning the ODST soldiers are just as powerful as Master Chief. They lose the shields (but replace them with a stamina system that makes them nearly as durable), and they can't punch through tanks like the Chief, but that's about the only difference. In contrast, ODST [=NPCs=] in the other games are nothing to write home about.

* HumansAreBastards[=/=]HumansAreMorons: The audio logs paint a rather unflattering picture of New Mombasa's citizenry, most of whom are depicted as some mix of greedy, selfish, corrupt, and TooDumbToLive.

** It even crosses over into real life somewhat. Buck and Dare are ex-lovers who end up working together--as are their voice actors Nathan Fillion and Creator/TriciaHelfer.
