* CommieNazis: The Ultranationalists might fly around the Hammer and Sickle as their logo and claim to want to return Russia to Soviet glory, but never actually seem to espouse any Marxist social or economic theory and their hatred for the west is rooted out of nationalism than it is out of Communist anti imperialism. Hell, them being super nationalistic is in their NAME. ** The Modern Warfare series might be an unintentional exploration of the real ideology that is active in Russia known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Bolshevism National Bolshevism]], which admires the Soviet era and its industrial and military policies, but not because its adherents see it as a bastion for international worker freedom, but because it represented Russia at its peak of power.

* [[ViewersAreMorons Gamers Are Morons]]: The primary justification for switching to [=IWnet=] was that it's "more accessible" than opening a server list and clicking on a server.

*** Also from "Persona Non Grata". Notice that Makarov's hitmen are equipped with top-of-the-line military gear, complete with military helicopters. [[spoiler: It shows that he's actually managed to gain influence and/or control of most of the Russian military by that point, which is confirmed a few mission later when the rest of Europe is attacked.]]

The Presidents Daughter is no longer a trope.
* ThePresidentsDaughter: Appears in Modern Warfare 3. [[spoiler: She's the daughter of the ''Russian'' president.]]

* MoodWhiplash: [[spoiler: Two times in rapid succession at the end of ''Modern Warfare''. "Game Over" begins with Griggs and Gaz gamely discussing who gets to buy drinks afterwards, and ends with both of them dead and Soap and Price in less-than-ideal condition. Cue Griggs himself rapping over the end credits, followed by an ''Film/{{Airplane}} reference and "Mile-High Club".]]

Added DiffLines:
* PowerWalk: [[spoiler: At the very end of the first ''Modern Warfare'', when Zakhaev, flanked by two Ultranationalist grunts, strolls onto the battlefield to execute the wounded (which, unfortunately, includes Gaz). Then Loyalist backup arrives and blows up the Hind hovering behind them, killing the moment, but also providing a distraction and allowing Soap to kill all three of them with Price's pistol.]]

** Another one that ties in the Four Horseman and their [[WildMassGuessing possible last surviving member,]] [[BigBad Makarov]]; Al Asad and Zhakaev both used [[HandCannon Desert Eagles]] to shoot player characters and teammates. At the end of Modern Warfare 3, Makarov gets a hold of one and immediately points it at Price, who is then the Player character, [[spoiler: then kills Yuri with it when he pops back up.]]

* FictionalCounterpart: The main antagonists of the trilogy are members of a Russian Ultranationalist Movement. They're not explicitly stated to be Pamyat, but the similarities are there.

* UsefulNotes/{{Chernobyl}}: After killing Al Asad Price gives background on a mission he performed there, the setting recreated down to the clock in the abandoned pool.

** [[spoiler: Shepherd is much the same way. Despite being a man who wants to lead the world into war and giving grandiose speeches about war, he continually sends other people out to do the dying for him. He also murders his own men through cowardly attacks versus facing the consequences of his actions. Much of the final level facing him is him running from his opponents until cornered. Played with as he's still an amazing fighter despite this.]]
