** Many of the cutscenes are reminiscent of the works of Creator/QuentinTarantino, which makes sense considering it is close in tone to ''Film/InglouriousBasterds''. Specifically, the train scene with Frau Engel parallels the mounting tension and dialogue-based suspense of the infamous milk scene from the previously mentioned film. Also, when B.J. first discovers the [[spoiler: Da'at Yichud technology]] at the London Nautica, the cutscene goes to split screen and features over-the-top typography as B.J. spells out the words on a piece of parchment. Finally, the game also has the tendency to cut abruptly to flashbacks (think [[Film/InglouriousBasterds Hugo Stiglitz]] or the whipping scene from ''Film/DjangoUnchained'').
** As with ''VideoGame/{{Quake}}'', getting your health past 100 will have it slowly degrade back to normal. In addition, Bobby Bram's keychain has the rocket launcher from Videogame/QuakeIIIArena hanging off of it, and the [[http://cdn.gamerant.com/wp-content/uploads/Wolfenstein-The-New-Order-Screenshots-Nazi-Weapons.jpg Laserkraftwerk]] looks almost exactly like VideoGame/{{Quake 4}}'s [[http://pcmedia.gamespy.com/pc/image/article/653/653516/400railgun_1127764499.jpg railgun]].

** Prendergast, the other soldier who escaped with B.J. and Fergus/Wyatt in the prologue doesn't show up again. It's mentioned by Fergus/Wyatt that he initially joined the Kreisau Circle alongside him, [[DroppedABridgeOnHim only to have died later on a mission.]]

* ArmorIsUseless: Takedown is an instant-kill, regardless of how many layers a normal soldier is wearing. {{Justifed}}, as B.J. stabs them in their armors' weak points, most commonly the neck.

** One of the game covers (namely, the one used for this page's image) and several of the armors used by Nazi soldiers and Ubersoldats appear to take their cues from ''Anime/JinRohTheWolfBrigade''.
