* ShoutOut: Tons, mostly in event texts, especially the "You have lost X amount of X resources" random events. After getting these dire news the "accept" option is usually a witty remark, for instance, for cotton it is [[GoneWithTheWind "Frankly, I don't give a damn!"]] and for Precious Metals it's [[LordOfTheRings "My precioussss!"]]

* EventFlag: Abused in the original, almost as much as in ''HeartsOfIron''. Breaking the first game's reliance on these was one of the major design goals of the sequel.

* GameMod: As per Creator/ParadoxInteractive tradition, many exist. One of the most entertaining for the sequel adds [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]].

* GloriousMotherRussia: Entirely possible. Russia starts as Great Power, but it's technology and political freedoms are lacking, while it's starting tech-group favours culture over such silly things like industry, commerce or military. Under the AI it will either be on the tail of Great Powers or the most powerful Secondary Power and the RedOctober is inevitable.

* CreatorProvincialism: The three Union Tags that have special ways of being formed are [[UsefulNotes/ImperialGermany Germany]], Italy, and... Scandinavia[[note]]The odd one out in that it ''failed'', as opposed to, say, Romanian unification[[/note]]. For those unaware, ParadoxInteractive is a Swedish company.

Added DiffLines:

** The United States, by virtue of one very simple advantage. [[NormalFishInATinyPond it's a full-on Great Power surrounded by nothing more than colonies and pushovers]]. Besides the single stumbling block of the Civil War, it stands to just roll over all of the Americas while everyone else is just squabbling with eachother.

* TheFederation: Any reasonably liberal Great Power arguably counts. The [=US=], [=UK=], France, Italy, and even ImperialGermany (if formed through a liberal revolution) are all particularly likely candidates.'

Development on ''Victoria 2'' ceased in 2015 and Paradox has not conclusively stated whether there will be a ''Victoria III''. The majority of dev investment since then has gone to its sister titles ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings'', ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis'', ''VideoGame/HeartsOfIron'' (whose fourth installment released in 2017), and ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}''.

* OldSaveBonus: You can import games from the ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis'' series. You can export them to ''VideoGame/HeartsOfIron 2''. Considering ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings'' has an export feature to ''Europa Universalis II'', you could in theory pilot the same faction from 1066 all the way through 1964 via the four games, a true feat of Paradox fanboyism.

** ''Vicky II'' is similarly the third step in a chain from ''Crusader Kings II'' to ''Europa Universalis IV'' to ''Hearts of Iron III'' or ''IV'' (either works).
