* HeyItsThatVoice: [[TheWire Marlo Stanfield]] (Knox to you ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' fans) is Emile. Which [[{{Typecasting}} says so much]] about his [[ScaryBlackMan character]].

* AmbiguousSituation/AmbiguouslyEvil: It's not made clear exactly ''who'' the militia members than Jun and Noble Six team up with are (they could be part of a local government funded army, they could be part of a defense force for the farmers in the region, they could be random gun nuts, or they could even be straight up [[LaResistance Insurrectionists]]). What ''is'' clear is that they disobeyed an evacuation order to protect their turf from the Covenant and that they are somehow in possession of some '''EXTREMELY''' high powered (and illegal) military-grade weapons.

** The Office of Naval Intelligence, AKA ''{{ONI}}''. Considering Bungie's habit of referencing previous titles, the odds of this being a coincidence are rather slim.

** The achievement "I See You Favor a .45" is a reference to ''TheWire''. Also Jamie Hector who played the ruthless drug kingpin, Marlo Stanfield in ''TheWire'' voices Emile.

'''Halo: Reach''' is the final {{Creator/Bungie}}-produced ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' FirstPersonShooter, released September 14, 2010. It is a prequel, dealing with the events described in the Expanded Universe novel ''Literature/HaloTheFallOfReach''. It follows a group of SPARTAN-[=IIIs=] (and one [=SPARTAN-II=]) called NOBLE Team. You take on the role of the newest addition, Noble Six, as you fight through the fall of the human colony. It is a completely original game (unlike ODST) and is DarkerAndEdgier (700,000,000 people die on Reach, [[DoomedByCanon you can't change that]].) The game is also structured more as a war film instead of featuring the SpaceOpera elements of the main trilogy.

* HypocriticalHumor: In ''Literature/HaloTheFlood'', many players disliked Chief's action movie hero-style personality; but if Bungie does it, and you can hear it (in the form of a Firefight voice), it suddenly becomes [[TookALevelInBadass so much better.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Noble Six is the third and second to last words in [[Creator/AlfredLordTennyson Tennyson's]] "The Charge of the Light Brigade". The poem fits the games plot pretty well.

* RocketlessReentry: The protagonist makes a fall from orbit (with the aid of a re-entry pack) after their escape ship has its thrusters too damaged for flight.
-->'''Jorge''': Well, I've got good news and bad news. [...] The only way off this slag heap is gravity.
-->'''Six''': And the good news?
-->'''Jorge''': That was the good news.

* FanNickname: Or rather, Developer Nickname. The GrenadeLauncher can be used in two modes, both of which require careful aim and timing to use properly. The skill required for effective use has earned it the moniker "Pro Pipe", in contrast to the so-called "Noob Tube" grenade launcher in ''ModernWarfare''.
