** When double-clicking on a minion, they pause to salute you. This includes minions that are deserting and are running away. Ordering a deserting minion to be captured or executed and then repeatedly double-clicking on them will result in them being quickly swarmed by loyal minions and killed or captured.

* FridgeBrilliance: As detailed under Enemy Civil War on the main page, the various spy agencies are supposed to fight one another thanks to moles amongst their leaders after a certain quest. It has a notable habit of not working, with the soldiers working together on these occasions. But how many times has the plotline of "special forces discover their superior is lying to them about their actually-good allies" has appeared in spy stories and political thrillers? How many times have those soldiers figured this out, and then worked with their former enemy to take out the BigBad?

** Moko's attempts to roar getting interrupted by him burping, running out of breath, etc. is a nice touch regarding his backstory. He used to be a divine temple guardian who became mortal. Moko's not used to having a body that needs to breathe or release gas.

** What about John Steele? His specialty is sneaking out of his jail cell and promptly planting explosives wherever he goes. His status as a nuisance is made worse by the fact that [[spoiler: he can't be defeated in-game.]]

* [[GoddamnedBats Goddamned Tourists]]: These idiots can prove to be very frustrating for an unprepared player. Frequently, they will follow agents and minions into your base, causing them to panic when they can't escape or see something evil. Not too bad, except they raise heat if they manage to get off the island with this information in mind. Hotels are a good option to keep them occupied, but the player has to pay out the nose for them. Made worse is that they can't do anything except [[MostAnnoyingSound scream and wail endlessly]] when panicked. You'll need plenty of social minions to keep them off your back, because when an agent manages to get in to your base, more often than not, these hawaiian-shirted bumblefucks aren't far behind.

** Made much worse by the fact that, in animation and audio, they never calm down - once a tourist is panicked, he or she will keep running and screaming no matter what, although after one of the tourist's stats (excepting Health) has been reduced to zero, no Heat will be gained - only headaches. Oh, and they can be panicked by things as frightening as ''the external doors to your topside shacks''.

* EvilIsCool: Well duh, that's what makes the game fun!



* ThatOneBoss: Of the Super Agents, Jet Chan in particular. Jet Chan makes players ''scream'' in raw rage.
** So much so that if Jet Chan shows up early on while you're building your base on the second island, you're better off just loading from your last save. Especially as Jet Chan is possibly the single most aggressive NPC in the game and will immediately assault any military minions who he sees, regardless of whether they're armed.

*** [[InterfaceScrew 'Base Mayhem']]. [[{{Angrish}} RRAAGGHHHH!]]
*** Base Mayhem can also cause hell by setting random items in your base on fire. Including things in sealed off areas you don't want your minions to visit like [[http://wiki.n1nj4.com/index.php?title=Ubertrap Ubertraps]] and [[http://wiki.n1nj4.com/index.php?title=Freak_Trigger Freak Triggers]]. Oh, and let your freaks escape the latter.
*** Steele is especially annoying since he rarely stays dead for very long and doesn't seem to see anything wrong with leaving the island and then coming back two minutes later.
*** Jet Chan is a hellacious pyro too. Worse, if you have nicely separated and closed off rooms, both tend to blow themselves up repeatedly in the chaos and get sent back to jail to escape and start the cycle over and over.

** Katerina Frostonova [[LuckBasedMission can be one]] due to her [[OneHitKill instakill stab]] (which she uses once per visit). Pray that she doesn't use it on one of your henchmen.
