* CodeName: Joanna gets Agent Dark (or "Dark Zero" for the most part in ''Zero'').the first game, with one or two occurrences of a TitleDrop instead.



** In the first few levels of ''Zero'', Joanna and Jack both get codenames, respectively "Dark Zero" and "Point Forward".

* ConspiracyKitchenSink: Apparently {{Area51}}, TheGreys, AncientAstronauts, TheReptilians and a SecretWar [[AllMythsAreTrue are all true]] and related to the RoswellIncident.

* ContinuitySnarl: The books don't mesh very well with the games. The original game states that Joanna is a recent graduate from the institute's training program, while the books would indicate that she had done several missions for them. The books also indicate that Carrington was practically in love with Cassandra and portray him as blindly idealistic, which don't match with his game portrayal. Unless the books events caused him to loose both. Finally Jonathan in the game is the institute's top infiltrator, while the books portray him as the institute's security chief with no sense of subtlety. Though those could be different Jonathans.

Added DiffLines:

** It's worth noting that this "Terminator walk" can be as brief or drawn-out as the guard sees fit, sometimes extending noticeably beyond the magazine of the weapon they're firing. Example: firing the K7-Avenger for 5 seconds straight.

* RedHeadedHero: Joanna Dark, though art for later games and novels shows blond streaks and highlights - a dye job?
** Apparently she was born like that according to the books.

** The very lame ending to the [[BrutalBonusLevel grueling]] Maian SOS level is [[spoiler: Elvis getting hit with a tranquilizer and keeling over.]]

** A very subtle one: the names that are mentioned over the intercom in Area 51 are actually the members of the rock band ThePixies.

** HotterAndSexier: Here is Joanna [[http://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/scale_medium/1/10392/906028-20090228_000333.jpg in the N64 version.]] Here is Joanna [[http://xboxoz360.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/perfect-dark-zero-oxcgn-joanna-dark.jpg in ''Perfect Dark Zero'']], showing tons of cleavage. (She was [[http://www.gamekyo.com/Webmasters/Images/40611320050925_234236_0_big.jpg on the cover of FHM magazine]], for god's sake.) For the Xbox Live remake, they went back to her conservative way of dressing, [[http://external.ak.fbcdn.net/safe_image.php?d=AQCKcUPQSX0E_MBd&w=200&h=434&url=http%3A%2F%2Fupload.wikimedia.org%2Fwikipedia%2Fen%2F9%2F91%2FJoanna_dark_N64_render.png but still couldn't resist dolling her up a bit.]] Maybe playing a sexpot just appeals to the [[EscapistCharacter female]] (and [[ThirdPersonSeductress woman-loving]]) audiences more?

* OneBulletClip: Averted in ''Perfect Dark'' on Game Boy Color, where a gun cannot be reloaded until it is emptied or another clip is "equipped" on the inventory screen. However, doing so disposes of all remaining ammo from the replaced clip, so you won't have any left over once you've emptied your last clip.

** In the first bonus level, Mr. Blonde does an Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger impression. The level's music even [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong sounds kind of like]] the theme from 'TheTerminator''.

** The Alaska mission, where Air Force One is hijacked, the President gets away in an escape pod and Joanna has to find him using his medical scanner, is very similar to the plot of ''EscapeFromNewYork''.
