* CompleteMonster: {{General|Ripper}} Nikita [[BigBad Dragovich]] is a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who creates the "numbers" program that [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashes captive American soldiers]] into sleeper agents to kill their own people. Dragovich first demonstrated his untrustworthy and callous nature at Stalingrad, when he deserted his own men and left them to be butchered by the German forces. After the war, Dragovich would lead a project to recover the biochemical Nova 6 weapon. To test its effectiveness, Dragovich and his [[TheDragon right-hand-man]] {{Colonel|Kilgore}} Lev Krevchenko used it on Russian soldiers, including [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyWorldAtWar Dimitri Petrenko]]]].Dragovich would later become one of the Soviet Union's most powerful members, where he would capture [[spoiler: [[PlayerCharacter Alex Mason]]]] and brainwash him into becoming a presidential assassin. Even worse, Dragovich planned to use his sleeper agents to release Nova 6 on the whole of the United States.

** Happens again with the release of ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3 Black Ops 3]]''. [[spoiler:At the end of Project Nova, Reznov asks Mason if he can trust his leaders to destroy Nova-6, or if he thinks they will keep it for themselves. Naturally, they keep it, and naturally, a containment failure causes 300,000 deaths in Singapore.]]

* WinBackTheCrowd: After the dedicated server brouhaha with ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare: Black Ops'' came to PC with dedicated servers and a server browser again. Not to mention the return of [[NaziZombies everybody's favorite gamemode from World at War]]. Black Ops 2 is also having this effect from the moment of its trailer's debut. Less linear gameplay and different endings based on how you do? The cries of stagnation are finished.

* NightmareFuel: Reznov frequently shows up to help Mason in battle. Over the course of the game, one cannot help but get the feeling that something is wrong with how convenient his appearances are. This creepy, unsettling feeling reaches a peak [[spoiler: at the end of "Rebirth" and during "Revelations,"]] where it is revealed [[spoiler: he was a figment of Mason's brainwashed mind all along.]] There are also the implications that [[spoiler: JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was also a Soviet sleeper agent ("Oswald...compromised...")]] and that [[spoiler: Mason eventually kills JFK in the very last moments of the final cutscene.]]

** In ''Black Ops 2'', if you fail to save Karma during the game, Menendez escapes from prison. [[spoiler:After killing Woods, he then goes to his sister's grave, and douses himself with gas, presumably to burn himself to death and join her in the afterlife. In other endings where you kill Menendez, he has a video that plays explaining that he was murdered and instructs his 2 billion or more followers to start mass rioting throughout the world. So if he burns himself to death, does that also trigger this video, which then also causes said rioting to occur?]]


Added DiffLines:

* HarsherInHindsight: ''Black Ops'' is on both sides of this trope. One one side, the final level of ''World at War'' has Reznov stating that he and Petrenko will return to Russia as heroes. [[spoiler: In ''Black Ops'', they are betrayed by Dragovich. Petrenko gets a brutal CruelAndUnusualDeath and Reznov spends the next 18 years locked up in a HellholePrison.]] Also, one of the lyrics in the game's closing theme [[Music/{{Eminem}} Won't Back Down]] is "I'll drink gasoline and eat a lit match". [[spoiler:In ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 Black Ops 2]]'', if Karma dies and you spare Menendez, then Menendez will do exactly that.]]
