* TooDumbToLive: Donald Colby, yeah you go into the witness protection program, not change your, leave the State and start a business under your real name. What could possibly go wrong?

** This could be a ShoutOut to ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry'', where when interacting with women, you are treated with a full portrait.

** This could be a ShoutOut to ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry'', where when interacting with women, you are treated with a full portrait. Considering Creator/AlLowe did uncredited work on the game, this shouldn't be that surprising.

* SayMyName: Before MetalGearSolid, there was one game over that involved Sonny getting ran over by a car and Keith shouting to him.

* AllThereInTheManual: Going through the personnel files on the police station computer is not necessary to complete the game, but it does tie up loose ends from the first game, including the identity of the "Gremlin".

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Throughout the series Bonds handles loads of tasks which should be done by a specialized investigator or officer. Probably the biggest example of this is near the end of the third game, where you call in a SWAT breach team to help taking on a group of criminals who have barricaded themselves into a crack house. All the SWAT do is plow down the door with their tank ram, and ''Bonds proceeds to enter the house by himself while the SWAT wait outside''.

* KarmaHoudini: The end of the terrorist campaign sees player character [[TheDragon Dante]] and those loyal to him hijacking a private plane, renouncing the criminal life with a {{Narm}}y poem, and setting course for the nearest tropical paradise.

* KarmaHoudini: The end of the terrorist campaign sees player character [[TheDragon Dante]] and those loyal to him hijacking a private plane, renouncing the criminal life with a {{Narm}}y poem, and setting course for the nearest tropical paradise. At least Basho gets his comeuppance by being killed or arrested -- depending on just how many bullets the player sends his way.



* PressXToDie: SWAT is full of this, as well as PressXToNotDie. Go around a corner without slicing the pie? You're dead. Fail to cover a door? You're dead. Take a wrong turn? You're dead. Enter the Eastman building on the wrong side or without proper sniper cover? RocksFallEveryoneDies.

** SWAT 2 gives the terrorist side a surrender button for each individual man. Basho dislikes his combatants getting arrested, but it can be used strategically to keep people alive or serve as a distraction. But you really should think twice before having your entire team surrender in one of the campaign's many "complete objective or fail the whole campaign" scenarios. You can even have Dante surrender in the final mission, which earns you a quick ticket to a debrief where either Basho gloats over his victory, or the terrorist getaway driver [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere freaks out]] over Dante and Basho both being imprisoned or dead.
