** When does this last thing happen? The last we see of Isako is after Cate saves her from [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness being shot by the Director]].

* NoOneCouldSurviveThat - Subverted and lampshaded. A character who was 'killed' with no body found returns, only it turns out later he is an evil impostor. This comes as a surprise to everyone because it's generally assumed by the characters that no body means no death.

** H.A.R.M. probably takes name from the bad 1966 ''Film/JamesBond'' ripoff movie ''Film/AgentForHARM'', although it is an American secret agency there. Monolith must have a large culture on the ''whole'' spy genre (or maybe they're just ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' fans).
** One enemy conversation you can overhear features one guard discussing virtually every 60's spy show ever made--if he's that big of a fan, it's a sure bet that Monolith is too.

* TheSixties - Even the ''space station'' you visit has a ''go-go lounge''.
** PoliticallyCorrectHistory - is Averted. Cate has to deal with a lot of sexism.
*** Played a bit straighter in the sequel, featuring a black guy as a liaison from the American branch of UNITY

** Technically though, [[spoiler:the space station was destroyed by a meteor storm which the crew (or rather the "scientific" part of it) failed to detect. You can overhear two scientists arguing about the computer being unable to calculate the meteor storm probability, and then finding out it wasn't plugged in. "Right, let's proceed to the escape pods in a calm, collected manner so as to not arouse suspicion." So, it wasn't Cate.]]

''No One Lives Forever'' is a FirstPersonShooter series developed by Creator/MonolithProductions and published by {{Sierra}}. A spoof of 1960s spy movies, it was followed by a Sequel, ''No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy In H.A.R.M.'s Way'' (which involved ''fighting ninjas in a trailer park in Ohio during a tornado'' and an ''evil assassin French mime'', among other things), and a MissionPackSequel called ''Contract J.A.C.K.''.

* GhostlyGlide - The Mime King in the second game moves like this. Turns out he's actually a dwarf on a unicycle wearing an oversized cape.

Added DiffLines:

* CaneSword: At the beginning of the second game Isako has a sword hidden in her Japanese-style umbrella.


Added DiffLines:

** Bodies fading away can also be turned on in the game options with the stated purpose of decreasing the load the game puts on the computer. It has the side effect of helping with stealth.


Added DiffLines:

* HonorBeforeReason: Isako owes an unspecified debt to the Director of H.A.R.M. who happily abuses it to use her and her underlings for his dirty work. She keeps obeying in spite of her obvious disgust with the man until he tries to reward her [[YouHaveFailedMe failure with death]], which is stopped by Cate.

* WhatMeasureIsAMook - probably taking a cue from the first AustinPowers movie, both games sometimes evoke this sentiment in the player, if you overhear the conversations among common enemies or read their letters: many of them are just {{PunchClockVillain}}s with friends, family and hobbies. Sometimes you'll feel compelled to sneak past them even if it's difficult, or just neutralize instead of killing them. An example bordering on the TearJerker happens in the second game: [[spoiler:you are escaping the collapsing underwater base and there's a blocked door with two men. One is trying to open it while the other cries remembering his brother who died in the space station - the one Cate blew up in the first game. Ouch.]]

** The fez-wearing mooks in the first game strongly resemble and sound like Will Farrell's character in ''AustinPowers: International Man of Mystery''.
