* AwesomeButImpractical: The Ziggurat building in ''Modern Times'', the expansion to the fourth game. It's one of the last buildings that you can unlock, and it houses a staggering 50 families with a high level of housing quality. However, it's gihugic, so good luck finding a good place to put it. Plus, its cripplingly expensive at $100,000 and requires 100MW of power, the most in the game. Not only does it come very late into the game, but it's inferior in terms of quality to the far less expensive and energy-consuming Modern Condominium, making the Ziggurat mostly useless.

* GenreSavvy: In Tropico 4, ''[[TheDitz Penultimo]]'' of all people proves that he has some intelligence when you are attempting to buyout Keith Preston's Las Fruitas company. He explicitly advises you to start by shares at only 1% a buy, to avoid getting Keith's attention. Only when Keith finds out and begins actively trying to fight back does he suggest buying larger shares.

** Less prominent in Tropico 5: the Cold War is just one of four eras in which the game is set, and the only era in which both the US and the USSR are present as foreign powers (in the Modern Times era, [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn the USSR becomes Russia]]). However, the Changing the World campaign plays strongly with the stock Cold War tropes, including El Presidente [[MutuallyAssuredDestruction scaring the superpowers away from the brink of nuclear holocaust by building Tropico its *own* nuclear program.]]

* ObviouslyEvil: In ''5'' all the caricature portraits are dialed back making everyone look relatively normal...except for your capitalist adviser Veronica Veneno, who looks like a human/shark hybrid.

* RealTimeWithPauseRealTimeWithPause: Funnily enough, the ability to stop and otherwise mess with time is attributed directly to you El Presidente, because you are just that great.
