* ShoutOut: You can find a scrap of newspaper in Morales' patrol car. On one side, there's an ad for a topless bar - on the other, one for a movie theater that just so happens to be showing ''DirtyHarry''.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsEasy: Averted with ''SWAT 2''. The terrorist campaign is much harder than the SWAT one. This isn't helped by the fact that the terrorists have inferior gear and stats compared to their SWAT counterparts.

Added DiffLines:

* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: Sonny's sidearm seems to needs its sights adjusted on a daily basis. Which is probably why he's switched sidearms again for the third game.

Added DiffLines:

* RankUp: Sonny goes from patrol officer to Detective in the first game, whether he applies for the promotion or not. In the intro for ''Police Quest III'', he gets promoted to Sergeant. Other characters get offscreen promotions between games as well; Dooley was a uniformed Sergeant in the first game and is a Detective Lieutenant in the second, though he now has a smaller office.

Added DiffLines:

* OralFixation: Your partner Keith smokes ''constantly'' while the chief of the homicide division keeps slurping ice cream. Pistachio flavour, specifically.

** PQIV has [[spoiler: the murder case of Bobby Washington, and the supremicist couple. See AntiClimax in the Police Quest IV section.]]

** PQIV is worse than PQII about this. Mainly that the [[spoiler: murder of Bobby Washington]] and the [[spoiler: attempted murder on John by the white supremicist couple]] have ''nothing'' to do with the main story other than having bodies pile up during the time.

Starting with Police Quest : Open Season (4), the series came under the helm of LAPD Chief Darryl F. Gates (Walls having moved on by that point). Open Season was the last to focus on a specific, named detective -- this time, an LAPD Homicide Detective, John Carey. Working from Parker Center, the player now had to cope with much more violent, graphic crimes. The player is introduced to Carey on the first screen, with a dead cop in an alley by a dumpster -- a dumpster which, when opened so the Criminal Investigative Division can photograph it, reveals the body of a six-year-old boy.
