* TooDumbToLive: The civilians. They keep running in front of your car or in your line of fire. Using your horn helps sometimes, but not always. (Anyhow, why they hear your horn, but not your machine gun, is beyond anyones guess). They are even to stupid to enter a safehouse if they are right in front of it. You have to stop to get them in your car, and then in the safehouse. The civilan drivers are worst. You might think it is a good idea to stop if a military Humvee firing a roof mounted machine gun crosses your road, but they prefer to ram it.

* ItIsPronouncedTropay: No one in the sequel seems able to decide if Cocheta is pronounced Co-Chase-A or Co-Chet-A.



* [[spoiler: LetThemDieHappy: With the nuclear detonation just two minutes away and troops still left in the city, General Sherman assures them that the choppers will be there to evacuate them soon, and that they have made him proud.]]

* AllForNothing: The nuke kills alot of civilians in the city, only for it to fail to stop the zombies. Cocheta even points this out to General Sherman when he tells him that he "Sacrificed them all for nothing."

* AllForNothing: The nuke kills alot of civilians in ArmorPiercingQuestion: "Are your medals and pins worth anything, sir, or are you THE BIGGEST COWARD I'VE EVER MET IN MY LIFE?" [[spoiler:Sherman agrees to help the city, only for it to fail to stop the zombies. Cocheta even points this out to General Sherman when he tells him that he "Sacrificed them all for nothing."two soldiers.]]



* EldritchAbomination: The mutants; their biography claims that they have [[BodyHorror eaten all of their skin off and reduced to fleshy muscles and slightly revealing bones]] thanks to the severe infection.


Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* NominalHero: John Creasman is a mechanic with a criminal record who'll risk life and limb to get out of the city [[spoiler:before the bomb is dropped]], even if it means unleashing the zombie plague on the rest of the country, or even the world. Mitigated when it's revealed that [[spoiler:the infection has already spread to other cities before the game's events.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Most of them are pretty run-of-the-mill, except for the [[EliteMook mutants]], who are impossible to shake off. Or the super mutants.
