* {{Foreshadowing}}: Wilhelm Strasse, aka "Deathshead", is introduced as a secondary antagonist in this game. As the head of the ambiguously-named SS "Special Projects" unit, his role in the occult operations being investigated by the B.J. is initially unclear, but from the start he is deemed as "probably the single most dangerous figure in the entire Third Reich". Twelve {{Real Life}} years and two games later we find out ''precisely'' [[DayOfTheJackboot how dangerous]] the man is.

* HumanoidAbomination: Olaric. An undead monstrosity covered with faces, filled to the brim with countless souls (which he will also use to attack you with) and has a throat light to boot.

* UnwinnableByMistake: Helpful advice: Don't manually save on either of the two stealth levels. If you happen to save in a moment right before being spotted (and thus, [[NonStandardGameOver ending the mission]]), you will respawn right before the mission ends again instead of at the last checkpoint. The only way to advance is to restart the mission from scratch.

* TitleDrop: The next-to-last mission is called "Return To Castle Wolfenstein".

to:

* TitleDrop: The next-to-last mission is called "Return To Castle Wolfenstein". It's also spoken aloud twice, once in the intro cinematic by a Nazi excavator ordering a subordinate to contact Himmler, and again towards the end when B.J. is ordered back to the Castle for the final confrontation.

* MeleeATrois: A few levels feature 3-way battles between the player, the Nazis, and the undead.

* MeleeATrois: A few levels feature 3-way battles between the player, the Nazis, and the undead. For [[StupidEvil some reason]], the Nazis never consider an EnemyMine truce with fellow human B.J.

* AllGermansAreNazis: Zig-Zagged. On the one hand, there are numerous German civilians in the levels, and German resistance fighters are essential allies without which the game cannot be won. On the other hand, this is balanced out by portraying [[spoiler:Heinrich I]] as an evil conqueror, dark warlord, SealedEvilInACan, and BiggerBad who presaged the dark machinations of the Third Reich. In reality, he was [[spoiler:one of the more effective and benevolent Holy Roman Emperors who ended the Magyar invasions of Europe and helped create the modern German nation]].

Also, unlike most other WWII shooters, every German soldier encountered by B.J. is specifically noted to be Waffen-SS, instead of having regular Wehrmacht troops mixed in with them.

* EvilIsNotAToy: The SS Paranormal Division has many opportunities to learn this lesson. It never quite sinks in and they keep dying gruesomely because of it.
