* 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. 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.

When a group of SS soldiers find that they DugTooDeep and are now trapped in a tomb with the walking dead, they run back to the entrance only to find they've been sealed in by their own commanders.

* ShownTheirWork: Most of the weapons you can wield were real WW2 weapons that behaved more-or-less as shown in the game. Even the Venom, which you might take as part of the sci-fi aspect of the game, is actually based on the real-life [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker-Leimberger Leimberger gatling gun]]; the M3 "Snooper" Rifle's scope gives black-and-white imagery and not the (inaccurate) red or greenish tint usually seen in media.\\ ** [[note]]There are, however, exceptions, such as the silenced Sten, which, when overheated from full-auto fire, stops shooting by itself and seems to release ''steam'' (????) from the barrel ports; the scoped Karabiner 98k (Mauser Rifle) is incorrectly loaded with stripper clips (most scoped rifles of the era could not use stripper clips because the scope was in the way) and is treated as a semi-auto weapon, and the Panzerfaust, which is depicted as a reusable rocket launcher as opposed to being a recoilless, single-shot anti-tank rifle in real life.[[/note]]
