* HeyItsThatGuy: The character Ian in ''Marathon RED'' will be recognizable as the same Ian from the WebComic ''Webcomic/MacHall''. ''Marathon RED'' was a mod artist Ian [=McConville=] made before starting webcomics, and the character Ian in the game is an AuthorAvatar.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Sadly, the creator of ''Pfh'Joueur'' appears to have [[http://forums.bungie.org/story/?noframes;read=61327 died of cancer]]. Many of the files for [[http://bighouse.bungie.org/joueur/ her scenario]] are no longer being hosted as a result of this. This basically means that, unless someone has and posts the missing scripts that enabled the game to run under Aleph One, the game can only be played properly under Mac OS 9, which is a shame, because it's a great scenario.
** That is, of course, unless you have a [[http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.shebob.com/joueur/pfhscripts.sit time machine]].

* [[spoiler: GainaxEnding]]: The final level of ''P'fh'Joueur'' involves [[spoiler: rescuing people who were abducted all the way back in 2000; neither Durandal nor Pfh'Joueur offer much explanation beyond "whaddya know, the legends were true". It's not quite [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment totally divorced from the plot]] as one of the major themes is being taken far away from home, and the ships that appear in various terminals are blatantly [=UFOs=], but still...]]

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first game, the only terminal images are maps which are generated real-time (the next two games used pre-made images, as the generated ones were noticeably jagged); there's also a single insignia and text colour that's shared between all three AIs, including Tycho (if you can find his terminals). Some exits are marked with visible jump pads, and there's a grand total of ''one'' vacuum level.

* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins]]: Rubicon's Pfhor Plank [[spoiler: smacks you with two: first Tycho successfully tricks Durandal and the SO into uploading their virus to the wrong ship, then the epilogue informs you that the Dangi Corp. has seized control of humanity in your absence (and presumably [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness disposed of their own AI, Lysander, afterward]], as Word of the Devs said they'd planned to). Rubicon X's Tycho Plank ends with Tycho finally slaying his brother [[FaceHeelTurn with your assistance]].]]
