* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Countess von Hagenhild ''tries'' to be this, making a point of telling Fenton that unlike others, she won't make the mistake of keeping him alive any longer than necessary. And yet, instead of actually killing him promptly, she instead wastes time ''telling'' him that she's going to do it as part of a completely unnecessary [[EvilGloating villainous monologue]] - one which even gives Fenton the next piece of the puzzle, to boot.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: There was never a governor of Hong Kong named Lord Weston, and the 1936 Olympic decathlon event was not won by someone named Glenn Parker. [[note]](In fact, all three of the medalists were Americans, not Europeans as depicted in the game.)[[/note]]

** VideoGame/MonkeyIsland's famous distraction technique is referenced when Fenton, confronted in Hong Kong, can try: "Behind you! A three-headed dragon!" It doesn't work.

*** Later, when looking at an argali, Fenton points out that it's "the second biggest sheep [he's] ever seen".

* InspirationNod: The game's overall feel seems to owe quite a bit to Franchise/IndianaJones (what with the whole "rugged but good-hearted rogue racing against the Nazis to secure an ancient secret that would give them unimaginable power" angle), and a number of things which show up are likely to be nods in its direction. The [[TravelMontage Travel Montages]] are one. Another is the plane crash in the Himalayas, which happens to use the exact same type of plane as Indy was in (a Ford Trimotor).

** Franchise/IndianaJones seems to have been a significant inspiration for the game (Nazis chasing a mystical MacGuffin that'll give them world domination, etc), and gets a direct reference when Fenton uses the line: "[[{{Film/Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade}} Nazis. I hate these guys.]]"

* TravelMontage: Given the amount of inspiration this game seems to take from IndianaJones, the presence of very similar travel montages can probably be considered an explicit homage.

* OlympicGames: The 1936 Olympics (the "Nazi Games") make an appearance, being on when Fenton goes to Berlin. As it happens, a competitor in the decathlon is an old friend of his from Sandhurst, and if the friend wins gold, would be able to invite Fenton to a ceremony being held in a building Fenton needs access to. Fenton, ever practical, rigs the long jump by tampering with the measuring tools. (He acknowledges that fixing an Olympic gold medal result probably isn't his finest hour, but then, the world is at stake.)
