* AsskickingEqualsAuthority[=/=]AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Heavy Troopers frequently call for their teammates to provide cover fire, which their teammates don't seem to do to each other, implying that they are officers of the 33rd battalion. However, it's unknown if they are authority, or if the other soldiers simply do so because the Heavy Troopers are vulnerable due to their inability to take cover.

However, it's unknown if they are authority, or if the other soldiers simply do so because the Heavy Troopers are strong and important, yet vulnerable due to their inability to take cover.

* DoomTroops: The [[EliteMooks Zulu Squad]] is this inside [[spoiler:Damned 33rd]]. Not only they are more powerful, but they also wear special gray uniforms with orange strios, and speak in a CreepyMonotone artificial tone instead of shouting like their regular comrades.

** Upon Delta's arrival in a seemingly dead city, Walker says "Gentlemen, welcome to Dubai." [[spoiler:If you choose to open fire on the American reinforcements at the end and survive the ensuing battle, Walker picks up the radio of the last man he kills and says the same thing.]]

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Robert Darden, despite being one of the most well known characters, is referred to his real name ''once'' - in an intel item collected [spoiler]after Lugo kills him[/spoiler]. Seemingly everyone refers to him as "Radioman", including himself.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: The game was played [[http://direcritic.com/2012/12/02/context-sensitive-spec-ops/ by a former Marine]], who noted that, among other things, many of the weapons in the game are depicted inaccurately, Delta Force teams usually consist of four team members rather than three, that a captain would not be leading a Delta Force team (nor would this team have a lieutenant in it) and other similar artistic liberties. He nevertheless praised the depiction of the armed forces and of post-traumatic stress disorder for their psychological realism. He also docked some points for the rather obvious critique about how [[spoiler:it was pretty obvious Walker was at '''best''' unstable, meaning that Adams should have relieved him of duty long before the White Phosphorus incident]].

* PhilosophicalChoiceEndings: The finale asks you "Is there a moral line beyond which a person is beyond redemption?"

* PhilosophicalChoiceEndings: The finale asks you "Is there a moral line beyond which a person is beyond redemption?"redemption?" Throughout the game, the PlayerCharacter Capt. Walker commits worse and worse atrocities in the name of the greater good, hiding from his conscience behind delusions of justice and revenge, until the final revelation breaks it down to him how much he (and, by extension, the player) has screwed up. It is left to the player to decide whether Walker can still be redeemed (in which ending he surrenders to the authorities) or not, and in the latter case, whether he commits suicide ([[ChoosingDeath directly]] or [[SuicideByCop indirectly]]) or embraces his monstrous nature and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters becomes exactly what he purported to fight against all along]].
