* DirtyCommunists/ChummyCommies: The USSR and their local Communist allies can be potential allies or enemies. They are not the most unreasonable factions and will support a moderate social democratic Tropico, though they will sponsor strikes and terrorist actions, or even invade, if particularly displeased. Rebels, particularly from ''3'' onward, play this straight.

* TheCaligula: In Tropico 5's Colonial era, His Majesty demands things from the colonies that range from slightly unhinged (eg. build a lumber camp to provide the King with logs so he can build a giant bonfire) to completely crazy (raise money so His Majesty can build an underwater palace). Lord Oaksworth, his emissary to you, relates these plans in an entirely straight-faced manner.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** In "Absolute Power", the player was able to enact privatisation, selling all the facilities to the private sector, which would then have to pay a rent to the State while the selling price would be sent to El Presidente's SwissBankAccount.

** If el Presidente doesn't build enough affordable housing, the Tropicanos will build their own, undesirable shacks.
** In "Absolute Power", add-on to the third expansion, the player was able to enact privatisation, selling all the facilities to the private sector, which would then have to pay a rent to the State while the selling price would be sent to El Presidente's SwissBankAccount.

** In ''5'', Tropico must declare its independence before the end of your term as governor, which can only be prolonged up to a point. Some scenarios require completing objetives before an opponent island does. ''5'' is especially bad in that regard- one mission requires you to build a ''Catholic mission'' within 9 months so you can quickly marry a woman you accidentally made pregnant to avoid a scandal. Another requires you to build a farm of specific type (farm type is randomized) next to every waste disposal plant you have before two years is up or they'll all explode.
