** There's also ''Red Faction: Battlegrounds'', a top-down, twin-stick ShootEmUp for the PlayStation3 and XBox360 designed as a tie-in to ''Armageddon.'' It consists of various challenges narrated by ''Armageddon's'' Sergeant Winters, and multiplayer where up to four players can control a variety of vehicles from ''Guerrilla'' and proceed to blow up ''everything.''

* TechnicalPacifist: Hendrix in Red Faction and Echo in Red faction 2. Both support armed rebellion but don't themselves use weapons. This actually bites Echo in the butt later on because he was caught with his pants down when [[spoiler:Molov]] stormed his office to take over. Echo wasn't carrying as a symbol of the future government's peaceful stance. [[spoiler:Molov]] being an old soldier felt that he would have no place in a peaceful government.

* AmbiguouslyGay: QuillQuill. Let's see: very masculine, short hair, calls Tangier "a pretty little soldier", and says that she doesn't know what Tangier sees in Alias in such a way that may imply jealousy? Yep it could fit.

* NamesTheSame: Alec Mason's VoiceWithAnInternetConnection for ''Guerilla'' was Sam (short for Samanya). Darius in ''Armageddon'' gets a "Sam" of his own, the "Situational Awareness Module" that also tells him where he needs to go next. It [[AllThereInTheManual mentions in the manual]] that Samanya actually designed and built S.A.M. herself.

* WeWillUseManualLaborInTheFuture: Every mining operation in ''Guerrilla'' consists of a bunch of people literally digging out the ore by hand with picks and shovels, then carrying it by hand to a loading hopper. The all-powerful EDF has access to energy weapons, terraforming engines, and super-advanced VTOL aircraft, but not mining drills or excavating machines.
** FridgeBrilliance: If you'd just helped a bunch of freedom fighters rebel using sophisticated machinery and weapons, why would you let them have them now that you're an oppressive regime? You wouldn't! The EDF purposefully hamstrung the miners...giving them tunnel-boring machines to dig into your own bases doesn't make for a good defensive strategy! Anyway...manual labor probably kept more Martians from joining the Red Faction, being basically slaves and whatnot.
*** There are advanced mining and excavation tools, like walkers and heavy industrial excavators. The EDF controls almost all of them and confiscated the rest precisely for the reason stated above, and there's a mission based around stealing a walker for the miners to get their support. [[ProperlyParanoid The EDF's paranoia is justified]] since even a light construction walker is capable of smashing an armored staff car to bits in one or two blows, flinging an APC several hundred feet, posing a major threat to a ''tank'', and turning entire military installations into rubble within a couple minutes.
* WhatTheHellHero: Gryphon will call you out for murdering civilians in the first game.
-->'''Gryphon:''' Do you have to kill everyone you see?

* DragonWithAnAgenda: Richard Gryphon in the original Red Faction is actually the Deputy Chief Administrator. Davis was the the actual Chief Administrator who you don't even have to interact with ([[VideoGameCrueltyPotential though you can kill him]]). The only reason we even know his name is the name plate on his office. We never actually figure out Gryphon's agenda, though. Presumably it was about surviving the chaos of the plague and the revolution. Either way, it turns out that Capek may have been TheManBehindTheMan as the plague is solely his fault. The first game was bare of backstory with the administrative sector of Ultor.
* DropTheHammer: The sledgehammer in ''Guerrilla''. It can can singlehandedly destroy enormous buildings with enough swings and one-hit kill many mooks in the game...

The only reason we even know his name is the name plate on his office. We never actually figure out Gryphon's agenda, though. Presumably it Gryphon was about surviving just trying to survive the chaos of the plague plague, rampant experimentation (especially since Capek experimented on his predecessor), and the revolution. Either way, it turns out that Capek may have been TheManBehindTheMan as the plague is solely his fault. The first game was bare of backstory with didn't explain the administrative sector background stories or responsibilities of Ultor.
the characters or Ultor very well.

%% * InterfaceSpoiler: The weapon menu in ''Guerrilla''.

%% * InterfaceSpoiler: The weapon menu in ''Guerrilla''.



* KickTheDog: Colonel Masako killing [[spoiler:Hendrix]] with a trap near the end of the first game. The killing could be excused as he did caused Ultor and the Mercs a lot of problems, but he was unarmed and Masako then gloated about the killing. His bravery and service earns him the honor of having the Capital Building of EDF-controlled Mars named after him.



* MadeOfIron: Colonel Masako (well, at least if she still has her shield) and Secretary of Defense Molov can both take multiple rocket launcher shots (and your entire stock of small arms ammo, railgun rounds, and... well, you get the idea) to the face before dying, even on the easiest difficulties. This is averted in ''Red Faction: Guerrilla'', where BigBad #1 [[spoiler: General Roth]] drives a tank to fight you for the game's final battle, and BigBad #2 [[spoiler: Admiral Kobel]] is killed in the ending cutscene. It's very satisfying to shove several rockets up [[spoiler: Roth]]'s tailpipe [[ShutUpHannibal whilst he's in the middle of his speech.]] You can also snipe him with a railgun through the tank's armor. Or [[ShockAndAwe electrocute him with the Arc Welder]].
