* GenreSavvy: In Tropico 4, ''[[TheDitz Penultimo]]'' of all people proves that he has some intelligence when you are attempting to buyout Keith Preston's Las Fruitas company. He explicitly advises you to start by shares at only 1% a buy, to avoid getting Keith's attention. Only when Keith finds out and begins actively trying to fight back does he suggest buying larger shares.

** Less prominent in Tropico 5: the Cold War is just one of four eras in which the game is set, and the only era in which both the US and the USSR are present as foreign powers (in the Modern Times era, [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn the USSR becomes Russia]]). However, the Changing the World campaign plays strongly with the stock Cold War tropes, including El Presidente [[MutuallyAssuredDestruction scaring the superpowers away from the brink of nuclear holocaust by building Tropico its *own* nuclear program.]]

* ObviouslyEvil: In ''5'' all the caricature portraits are dialed back making everyone look relatively normal...except for your capitalist adviser Veronica Veneno, who looks like a human/shark hybrid.

* RealTimeWithPauseRealTimeWithPause: Funnily enough, the ability to stop and otherwise mess with time is attributed directly to you El Presidente, because you are just that great.

[[note]]Warning, Presidente, I received a message from the game's translators. They refuse to translate "grotesque clichés about our country's so-called military cowardice." They sent us two student tariff's tickets for the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galerie_des_Batailles Galerie des Batailles]], a minimap to Verdun, and a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_de_Lattre_de_Tassigny Marshall de Lattre]] fan-art. They served in the 152th Infantry Regiment.[[/note]]

* DirtyCommunists/ChummyCommies: The USSR and their local Communist allies can be potential allies or enemies. They are not the most unreasonable factions and will support a moderate social democratic Tropico, though they will sponsor strikes and terrorist actions, or even invade, if particularly displeased. Rebels, particularly from ''3'' onward, play this straight.
