* 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 (instead of continuing to shoot until the magazine is emptied) 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]]

* OhCrap: When you first meet [[ThatOneBoss the super soldier"]]
-->"Well Agent Blazkowicz is it. You are a most impressive specimen. It would be my pleasure to dissect you piece by piece. Let me introduce you to someone. Do not confuse him with the mere prototypes you've encountered. This is the pinnacle of all my research. ''Das Über-Soldat.'' The Super Soldier. It will be my pleasure to watch it destroy you." -'''Dr. Wilhelm Strauss'''

The game is set DuringTheWar, following the story of [[{{Badass}} B.J. Blazkowicz]], a soldier sent to investigate a secret/occult Nazi plot. After being captured and escaping Castle Wolfenstein, he finds out the Nazis are resurrecting corpses as well as developing all manner of advanced technology (like a viral V2 missile, rocket planes, SuperSoldier cyborgs), all of this fitting into a mysterious plot to revive an evil conqueror from past times.

* AluminiumChristmasTrees: The whole "sexy Nazi dominatrix" thing may seem like the sort of silly, salacious fanservice dreamt up by the same sort of people that made games like ''Sin'', ''F.A.K.K. 2'', or ''Deathtrap Dungeon'', but is actually a classic trope that goes all the way back to the old pulpy World War 2 era men's adventure magazines that the ''Wolfenstein'' series draws a lot of inspiration from.

* {{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".

* 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.
