* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: The [[GiantMook Giant Mooks]] can be shot to death, sure, but it's so much more fun to use GoodOldFisticuffs, which is exactly what the developers intended.



** The old lady Evelyn is British, used to be a prolific and famous archeologist, ties back her hair, and has a gun and knows how to use it. If not for the name, Evelyn would be a dead ringer for an elderly [[TombRaider Lara Croft]].

''Uncharted'' is a series of ActionAdventure ThirdPersonShooter [[PlatformGame platforming]] video games developed by Creator/NaughtyDog for UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 3}} and UsefulNotes/{{PlayStation 4}}. The games follow self-styled AdventurerArchaeologist Nathan Drake, supposed descendant of UsefulNotes/SirFrancisDrake, and his quests to find long lost historical artifacts and treasures. Gameplay mixes third person gunfights, environmental exploration, and puzzle solving. The series is notable for its cinematic presentation, with fantastic voice acting, fully [[SerkisFolk motion captured]] cutscenes and character animations, lush scenery, and honest-to-God CharacterDevelopment. Also, they're [[RuleOfFun fun]]. And highly acclaimed.

** Lampshaded in Uncharted 4, where the achievement for killing 1000 enemies is "Ludonarrative Dissonance", which is in reference to Drake's InformedFlaw of simply being an ActionSurvivor.

* SoftWater: Averted at one point in ''Uncharted: Drake's Fortune''. Early in the game, you need to raise the water level in a pit to make it down safely, because it's still too far to fall without dying. It's played straight at other points and in the sequel though.



* TooAwesomeToUse: The Wes 44. Revolver. In both games, it's one of the best handguns, but whenever you find it, it usually only has six shots. If you find another, it's only ''half'' loaded (you only get three more bullets). But it kills any normal, non-heavy armor mook in one shot except on Crushing, where it will kill such enemies in two.

* RetroGaming: Apparently Elena and Cassie are both really into retro gaming, as we see both of them playing a PS1 at certain points in the game (Nate plays it as well, but he gives the impression it's not something he's done before).

* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Even for Pirates, the amount of betrayal that goes on in Libertalia is exceptionally high, to the point where one wonders how they were ever able to work together for any length of time. The best example is Thomas Tew, who manages to betray the other colonists, the pirate lords, and finally his own Captain Henry Avery.

* NoHonorAmongThieves: [[spoiler: Libertalia was a lie the entire time, it was a trap set by Henry Avery and the other pirate captains to rob the colonists of their shared loot. After that, they turned on each other, until Avery and Thomas Tew had them all poisoned.]]

** In the game itself, Nate his brother Sam and Rafe suffer from {{Greed}} to various degrees. Nate's initial motivation to help Sam begins to slip as his obsession takes over, [[spoiler: making him lie to his wife and briefly sidelining his mentor]]. Sam when faced with [[spoiler: his brother attempting to force him to get on Victor's seaplane, makes the foolhardy decision to run alone to the treasure which he's been hunting for, nearly getting himself killed in the process in Avery's burning ship]]. As for Rafe [[spoiler: his need to loot Avery's ship despite having the more practical option of looting the surrounding cavern (that's free of booby traps), leads Nadline to seal him within the bowels of the boat and his vindictive nature and refusal to let things go results in Drake killing him.]] It's Ross who out of the characters [[spoiler: isn't consumed by {{Greed}} and is willing to let the big pay day go and become the only Uncharted villain to live]].
