* EnemyChatter: Common amongst Helghast troops, who often broadcast tactical information in clear. Lampshaded by Chairman Stahl.
--> '''Helghast''': The Chairman is exposed! Wing group, form up.
--> '''Stahl''': Give me that! [[GenreSavvy Stop broadcasting on an open channel]]!

** The Earth Government UCN, which commands the ISA, sold mining and passage rights of Alpha Centauri to the old Helghan Corporation who populated Vekta originally for a massive sum of money, but then later realized [[OhCrap they gave the Helghan Corporation the power to legally seal off Earth from the rest of the colonies]] and began looking for a way to take it back. Helghan Corporation began blackmailing the UCN and ISA to enforce the original argement before deciding to force them to accept the status quo by military power, [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower leading to them being beaten by the combined force of the ISA and UCN forces.]] As the result the company is dissolved and the UCN starts shipping in colonists from Earth while removing the rights of the original Helghan settlers. Enraged, a few million of them leave for the planet Helghan in the hopes of being free again and starting anew. Meanwhile the ISA secretly controls any communication between Vekta and Helghan, arresting anyone who still has connections to their friends now suffering on Helghan.

** The giant wall separating the Vektans and Helghast refugees in Shadow Fall is a pretty clear reference to the BerlinWall. The Black Hand, a Helghast terrorist group opposed to the current peace between their government and the ISA, is another reference to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werwolf#Within_Germany Operation Werwolf]] as well has the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Hand_(Serbia) real life Black Hand]] which was responsible for the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and thus the start of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.

* {{Novelization}}: There's actually a very well-written novel of ''Killzone 3'' called ''Killzone: Ascendancy'', written by Sam Bradbury. It adds a lot of depth and humanity to the main characters (particularly Sev) that we don't get to see in the games.

** You can do this to flamethrower-wielding enemies in ''Mercenary'' by shooting the tanks on their backs.

Added DiffLines:

** Kratek and [[spoiler:Admiral Grey]] did it first in ''Mercenary''-the former developed a bioweapon intended for use against humans, which the latter attempts to steal and repurpose against Helghast.


Added DiffLines:

* YouKnowImBlackRight: In ''Mercenary'', when you're fighting alongside the Harkin's bodyguard Boris to evacuate Justus, he makes a derogatory remark about Vektans. Justus responds by reminding Boris that he's half-Vektan.

* AbsentAliens: No extraterrestrials here, despite being halfway through the millennium. The Helghast themselves are just [[spoiler:descendants of a group/corporation of Vektan colonists, who rebelled against the Earth goverment with the intention to declare independence and keep the colonial property for themselves. For this, they were banished for their crimes to the neighbouring DeathWorld planet of Helghan. There they underwent a bit of HollywoodEvolution due to the extreme climate and biochemical conditions of the atmosphere and became an [[HumanSubspecies offshoot/subspecies of regular humans]].]] Helghan itself does have a variety of native Flora and Fauna, none of which is sentient.
** [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Doesn't make them any less dangerous.]]

** So, in the end, both sides are flawed, destructive, and tyrannical in its own way. It may also count as EvilVersusEvil (or at the very least ADarkerShadeOfGray example of this).
