* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Multiple reviewers have commented on the remarkable similarity between Agent Carter and Robert "[[TheTerminator T-1000]]" Patrick. The voice actor even sounds quite a lot like Patrick.

* RenegadeSplinterFaction: It's hinted that Faulke was turning the Bureau into one. The group's official mission was to coordinate resistance in the aftermath of a Soviet invasion of the United States. However, before the game even begins the Bureau had switched over to recovering and researching alien technology on Earth such as Elerium. Faulke had also used his high level political connections to pretty much sever the Joint Chiefs control over the Bureau. [[spoiler: In the epilogue the chosen host of the Ethereal is debriefed by someone referred to as the 'Councilman', implying the Bureau now answers to a global organization instead of just the U.S. government.]]

** ''Enemy Unknown'' hints that [[LesCollaborateurs EXALT]] is the remnants of the Bureau, making it a splinter faction offshoot of the XCOM project.

* ArbitrarySkepticism: The Russian spy dismisses the notion of alien invaders as mere children's tales, despite having infiltrated a base dedicated to fighting the invaders with their own weapons and there being an actual alien in the lab while reports base personnel talk about nothing but the devastating attacks that have wiped out entire cities.

* BribingYourWayToVictory: The light plasma pistol can be purchased as a piece of DLC, it's available as soon as you finish the second mission and is ''significantly'' more powerful than any of the other starting weapons. The only drawback is how fast it burns through ammo, but given how plentiful ammo is in most areas this isn't much of a problem.

Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: The game prevents you from shooting allies and civilians by automatically unequipping your firearms whenever they're present. You're free to kill the infected "Sleepwalker" civilians found scattered throughout the game's levels with pretty much every weapon or attack in the game, however.
