* {{Badass}}: In ''Pandora Tomorrow'', [[LampshadeHanging Anna quips]] that Sam and Shetland seem to be competing for the title of "World's Most Amoral Reluctantly-Aging Badass."



* {{Badass}}: Sam Fisher, especially apparent in ''Conviction'' onwards with his JackBauerInterrogationTechnique on his enemies. Also qualifies as a RetiredBadass for being a former Navy SEAL and covert agent for Third Echelon.

** In ''Chaos Theory'', the death of Doug Shetland puts Displace out of business permanently, and are not mentioned again after Sam finishes him off. Now that the government knows what they've been up to, those who remained standing surely had a lot more explaining to do.

A further departure from the original tone and gameplay, ''Conviction'' starts with Sam in Malta, where some leads point him to a thug named Andriy Kobin. Before he can get the answers he needs, he's captured by [[spoiler:Third Echelon]], prompting him to escape and link up with old friend Victor Coste. His search for answers takes him down a path he had thought he would never take, uncovers truths he thought impossible and has him racing to foil a far-reaching conspiracy. Conviction was well-received despite some fan controversy, and was even named Game of the Year by the [[MachineCAST MachineAWARDS]].

** Ghost: The GlassCannon, focuses on remaning hidden and non-lethal/indirect assaults. Effectively a swift version of the old approaches.

The first game, in which Sam investigates a Georgian dictator engaged in terrorist activities, was stealth in its purest form; Sam was almost completely balanced with his enemies in terms of killing power, and a number of missions forbade him from killing any enemies or even causing an alert, so a very heavy emphasis was placed on avoiding confrontation altogether. To that end the player had to navigate creatively, time their movements with extreme caution and patience, and make use of Sam's high-tech gadgets, most notably [[GogglesDoSomethingUnusual his trademark headset, which provides night vision and thermal vision]], and his light meter, which allows the player to use light and shadow to utmost advantage.
