Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness: The series has been all over the place tonally. The original ''Castle Wolfenstein'' and its sequel were fairly straight-laced and serious in tone. ''Wolfenstein 3D'' went far over to the silly side with StupidJetpackHitler and {{Ghostapo}} elements right out of cheesy pulp comics. Then the series got somewhat more serious with ''Return to Castle Wolfenstein'' and ''Wolfenstein 2009'', though the pulp elements are very much still present. And with ''The New Order'' and ''The Old Blood'', the series got significantly more serious and [[DarkerAndEdgier darker]], with the pulp elements being scaled down and treated more realistically.

* StupidJetpackHitler: Iconic to the series as a whole since it first became a 3d FPS series. ''Wolfenstein 3D'' famously involves UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler in a mecha suit as the final boss and cybernetically augmented, zombie-like "mutants" in its first expansion. ''Return to Castle Wolfenstein'' features actual jetpack-equipped Nazi troopers, bio-engineered monsters and the Ubersoldaten, who could be either EliteMooks in PowerArmor, cyborgs or robots. The 2009 game and ''The New Order'' go full-fledged DieselPunk.
