** When you hit things while driving, your partners call you out. The car you receive during the Vice Bureau arc isn't a stabdard police car but Roy Earle's own car, and some of the lines he says if you hit things reflect it. If you drive another car with him as a passenger and bump into things, some of his lines will express belief that you aren't wrecking ''his'' car.

** It gets especially egregious when you look at the [[BlatantLies charming]] Roy Earle, who, despite being a philanderer, drug abuser, racist, misoginist, and just a [[IncrediblyLamePun royal]] prick, still gets to be the star detective of the vice squad. Granted, [[spoiler: he is a part of the conspiracy]], but it's still very jarring.

** In one of the Arson cases, Biggs makes a dismissive comment about television never getting all that popular.



* RealEstateScam: [[spoiler:The Suburban Redevelopment Fund charged returning soldiers for the houses they were going to build, but the houses were actually made from materials used to build movie sets, so they could be burned for the insurance money, which valued them as though they had been made of proper materials.]]

Unbeknownst to the public, the directors intentionally chose land intended for a new freeway, knowing that when the government inevitably claimed it under eminent domain, it would have to pay the SRF fair market price for the houses they were going to build, but land; by building the houses were actually made houses, the land's value would increase, resulting in a bigger payout from materials used the government. The SRF proceeded to build movie cut every possible corner during construction, such as using lumber from film sets, so they could be burned for to minimize expenditures, while the insurance money, company fudged the assessment to make it appear as if everything were up to code. The only problems were the accidents during construction and the families in the area that refused to sell their homes. The former was handled with generous life insurance payouts, but the latter was a little more complicated. The SRF ended up running bogus promotions that would send the troublesome property owners away on vacation, during which valued them as though they had been made of proper materials.]]time an arsonist would burn the house down. Oh, and did we mention that this was being partially funded by stolen army-surplus morphine?]]

* {{Hypocrite}}: Los Angeles, a city known for its vices, drags Cole Phelps, [[spoiler: a mere adulterer]], through the mud and dismantles all of his accomplishments in the police force because of this simple transgression. It gets annoying when his superiors chastise him for it even though most of them [[spoiler: deal in murder, drugs, and much shadier affairs.]] Even his own comrades in the war have the balls to call him out for his [[spoiler: mistake with the cave hospital]] despite going on to [[spoiler: cause much of the conspiracies]] that Cole has to solve later in the game.

* WideEyedIdealist: Cole revels in the trope, playing as huge contrast to the jaded veterans that he is partnered with. He believes that every case can be solved and playing by the rules is the best way to handle things. [[spoiler: Cole's idealism is a mask to hide the fact that he was such a bad leader in WorldWarII. A fact that resulted in many of his men being killed, prompting them to shoot him in the back for his troubles, and that he accidentally fried a cave full of women and children. After Cole's fall from grace when he is caught having an affair with a singer, he starts tackling cases that need to be solved rather than solving cases just to make himself look good and starts to understand that not everything can be resolved from playing by the rules.]]
* WorldWarI: Biggs fought in it, and had a particularly disturbing encounter with German flamethrowers during the Battle of Belleau Wood.
* WorldWarII: Cole is a veteran of it (Okinawa), like most men his age.
