* FanHater: Given how ''Call of Duty'' is treated as a punching bag by the internet, it's only natural that the franchise's fans are also scorned. It's not uncommon for some commentators to write off fans as potty-mouthed kids, hypermasculine dudebros, or gun nuts. The fact that [=CoD=] fans have been known to throwing tantrums over something as insignificant as a weapon's reduced fire rate didn't help matters.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Treyarch's developing games (they made ''3'', and absorbed the team that created ''United Offensive'' after co-developing ''Big Red One'' with them) and the yearly release cycle (''UO'' came in 2004, a year between the first two games) has been around from the very beginning.
** Not to mention the heavy use of DecoyProtagonist, although [[spoiler:no playable characters actually die until ''Modern Warfare''.]]

* WhatAnIdiot: In ''Call of Duty 2'', quite a few Germans take cover behind sandbags and walls and the like. But for some reason, right behind them they have bright red barrels MadeOfExplodium. This makes it very easy to off said soldiers simply by shouting the barrels to make them explode.

** Press F To Pay Respects: An action prompt from a quick time event which involves of pressing the '''F''' key to pay respects to a dead person. The letter was also ''commonly'' used by both gamers & non-gamers for commenting the series of real-life or fictional failures.(NOTE: The Console uses the X button, but the "Press X to pay respects" meme is not popular enough.)

** During the unveiling of the UsefulNotes/XboxOne, there was a presentation about the new graphics engine in ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMYso30L9zI The "Advanced Fish AI"]] was quickly joked about because ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' did it a full seventeen years earlier in ''1996''. This one spread enough that even ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'', which came out three months before ''Ghosts'', had an achievement making fun of them for it.
