Added DiffLines:

* ApocalypticLog: The terminals on The Ark, The Covenant, and Halo levels provide a detailed account of the final stages of Flood-Forerunner war. [[spoiler: The fall of the Forerunner empire is hastened by the defection of the military AI Mendicant Bias to the Flood. Mendicant, having grown rampant over time, comes to the view that the Forerunners have imposed an artificial constraint on biological evolution via their belief in the "Mantle" and as such must be eliminated. The Forerunners commission a second AI, Offensive Bias, and charge it with stopping Mendicant and the Flood at any cost. The Flood launch a final and utterly massive assault against the Ark (defended by Offensive Bias and the remnants of Forerunner navy) in an attempt to prevent the activation of the Halo arrays. They are unsuccessful, and are defeated at the cost of the rest of the unindexed sentient life in the galaxy, including the Forerunners. Offensive Bias manages to salvage Mendicant's personality from the debris of the battle and imprisons it in the Ark's computer systems.]]
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: A hundred millennia after its defeat at the hands of Offensive Bias, Mendicant Bias (via the terminals on the Ark) contacts the Master Chief and expresses a desire to atone for its role in the genocide of the Forerunners.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ZergRush: According to the terminals, [[spoiler: the Flood and Mendicant Bias assaulted the Ark and its Forerunner defenders with nearly five million assimilated spacecraft (comprised mostly of unarmed civilian vessels used as cannon fodder) in order to stop the Halo arrays from being fired.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ParryingBullets: It is possible to deflect rockets, either with precise (read: lucky) explosions from grenades or other rockets, or with precise swings from the gravity hammer.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Halo 2 was originally to have ended where Halo 3's first half left off, making much of the campaign filler and resulting in a relatively story-cramped installment.

* FanNickname: R'tas Vadum (the Elite counterpart to Lord Hood) is also known by fans as "Half-Jaw," because, well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you know]]...

* CatastrophicCountdown: a variant. After starting up the [[spoiler:Halo Ring]] it needs several minutes to charge and literally shakes itself apart. The last section of the game is a mad dash to find a way off. While there's no explicit timer the structural plates fall off at a constant rate. Justified in that the thing was half-built when it was fired.

** GameplayAndStorySegregation: zigzagged trope. In 1P, the Arbiter is a friendly NPC who is present in almost all levels. In two-player co-op, he's the second player's avatar. In three-or-more player co-op, two more Elites just magically appear out of nowhere, with no particular plot justification, relevance or lines.
