* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The First Extrasolar War, which is portrayed in comics throughout "Shadow Fall", resembles WorldWarI with archaic-looking gasmasks over all the soldiers to protect from hazardous chemicals (Helghan's atmosphere), trench warfare, and the war ending with the losing side humiliated and saddled with losses (Germany's fines for damage caused by the war/The Helghast's retreat back to Helghan's with heavy surveillance). The conflict of "2" and "3" resembles WorldWarII with the Helghast's swastika-like symbols and armbands, betrayals of leaders within the empire by fellow leaders, and [[spoiler:the end of the conflict caused by using a devastating weapon that causes a huge amount of deaths and destroys the environment where it hit]]. "Shadow Fall" is a parallel for the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, with a tense relationship between two nations separated by a wall due to the war they previously fought, scientists from both nations developing technology [[spoiler:and weapons]] to outdo each other, and a secretly ongoing war that cannot be publicly acknowledged without risking the safety of the world.

** 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 [[WorldWarOne WWI]].

'''''Killzone''''' is a series of first-person shooters exclusive to the PlayStation consoles, developed by Netherlands-based Creator/GuerrillaGames. The series is known for taking classic war movie tropes and visual aesthetics from many of the 20th century's most brutal conflicts ([[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI both]] UsefulNotes/{{World War|II}}s, [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Vietnam]], UsefulNotes/TheGulfWar, etc) and reconstructing them, wait for it, [[AC:[[RecycledInSpace In Space]]]].

* WarForFunAndProfit: For the Earth megacorporations, the FantasticRacism war between Vektans and Helghast is just a simple and efficient way of making money and power off people's suffering and covering it up in blood and dirt. The Vektans are all but enslaved to their dictator, convinced that they live in perestroika when they're just blindly worshiping their slave leaders. Said dictator is a massive hypocrite who arranges good trade in natural resources (Helghast are a mining people) in exchange for the megacorporations protecting his ass. The war itself ensures that nobody is looking at the megacorporations, while also fueling a demand for advanced military technology, which can easily be used to intimidate the civilian populace (as seen in Shadow Fall). For everyone else, it's death and suffering. So when a lone Vektan cold-shots the dictator of Helghan and the Helghast fanatics start using alien technology that the megacorporations underestimated, shit starts getting REAL.

** By ShadowFall, [[spoiler: the planet is still being mined for its Petrusite though in output smaller than previous records due to the dangerous environment, collapsed infrastructure, and bitter underground-dwelling survivors.]]

* HalfBreedDiscrimination: New Helghan in Kill Zone: Shadowfall segregated "tainted" individuals and even deported them. Though same could be said to [[NotSoDifferent ISA side of Vekta]], which they were allowed back into New Helghan.

** And of course, the Helghast resemble, and are likely inspired by, the Protect Gears from Mamoru Oshii's ''[[Anime/JinRohTheWolfBrigade Kerberos Saga]]''. And the heavies in the second game [[Franchise/{{Bioshock}} seem a little familiar]]. Of course, [[ShrugOfGod Guerrilla Games hasn't commented on this and said nothing to confirm or deny it, considering that a lot of people at forum boards were asking about this.]]

** In Shadowfall they are also responcible for forcing Vekta's government into giving the survivors of Helghan half of their capital city without time of the locals to relocate peacefully, instead allowing the Helghast free hand to deport them with any force they like as seen in the intro.

* AwesomeYetImpractical: The Jetpack in Killzone 3. Though it is obviously useful for flying around, you can't crouch while using it, and using it to fly leaves you open to enemy fire. The Jetpack does have a machine gun, but it's surprisingly weak, considering that it's supposed to be an LMG.

** The STA-7 from ''Mercenary'' may look like a good stealth weapon with its 48-round magazine and silencer,
but it's surprisingly weak, considering its damage and accuracy is so poor that it's supposed to be an LMG. trying for a headshot will usually just alert the enemy.
