* InformedAbility: The Strogg is said to have technology far ahead of Humanity, but humans seem rather quick to come up with improvements for captured weapons. After the opening mission to neutralize a local Strogg airbase, however, someone points to a specimen of Strogg aviation powerplant, saying that it is at least 15% more efficient than anything Humanity has.

* InstantDeathRadius: Whatever you do, don't get close to a Harvester. Those needle-like ends to their legs aren't just for show.

** NotUsingTheZWord: The "zombies" are called "Slimy Transfer" and "Failed Transfer".

** NotUsingTheZWord: The "zombies" are called "Slimy Transfer" and "Failed Transfer". Averted in-game in that one marine actually does refer to them as zombies, before being corrected by another marine who states they're actually the discarded results of failed Stroggifications.

* BossInMookClothing: Gladiators and Heavy Hovertanks in the vehicle-based levels, where wiping Stroggos is pretty easy.

** HopelessBossFight: Although it's somewhat unique in that Kane ''does'' have to damage him significantly, otherwise he just straight out kills him (game over man, game over) instead of immobilizing him with his tractor beam.

* HarderThanHard: General difficulty. The weakest, basic enemy Mooks can kill you in just a handful of shots. All enemies have noticeably more health, so that even mid-level enemies like Berserkers and Gunners take more than a full clip of assault rifle fire to kill. Your teammates are no longer invincible powerhouses, making all levels with them into {{Escort Mission}}s. The game is already fairly stingy with Health and Armor on ''Normal'', so imagine what all this is like on HarderThanHard.
