* {{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.



** On the flip side, the ISA have been reduced to this during the events of ''Killzone 3''.

** On the flip side, the * FightingForSurvial: The ISA forces on Vekta have been reduced to this during the events of ''Killzone 3''.3'', having been effectively abandoned by the ISA high command.


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.

** 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).

* ForMassiveDamage: The ''Killzone 2'' and ''Killzone 3'' Heavies have a oxygen cylinder than you have to riddle with holes in order to kill them, but to shoot THAT, first you have to hit them in the head to make them turn around.
** Knife strikes (either by you or against you) generally mean instant death, as do melee attacks in general and straying within a sniper's sights for a fraction too long.
** Played with during the battle with the [[HumongousMecha MAWLR]] in 3. The objective of the fight is to shoot some incredibly obvious heatsinks that expose themselves every time it fires its main gun. After blowing them up, the MAWLR collapses. Here, you'd expect it magically explode from overheating. [[DeTerminator It only gets up and keeps firing while covered in flames.]] In the end, you resort to jumping onto a gunship and firing on everything you can see, including the bridge. Afterwards, the MAWLR collapses under literal massive damage.

* NoNewFashionsInTheFuture: Civilian attire for both Vektans and Helghast in ''Shadow Fall'' is pretty much the same as present-day.



* SpaceClothes: Averted in ''Shadow Fall''. Civilian attire for both Vektans and Helghast is pretty much the same as present-day fashion.

* HeroicMime: The player characters in all three games do speak during cutscenes but are silent during actual gameplay.

to:

* HeroicMime: The player characters in all the first three games do speak during cutscenes but are silent during actual gameplay.
** Arran Danner in ''Mercenary'' plays this totally straight, being silent throughout the whole game.
** Averted with Lucas Kellan in ''Shadow Fall'', who speaks freely in and out of
gameplay.


Added DiffLines:

* UnbrokenFirstPersonPerspective: ''Mercenary'' takes place entirely from Danner's perspective.
** ''Shadow Fall'' also utilizes this, never leaving first-person view outside of the first [[spoiler:and last]] cutscenes.

* 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]].
