* HilariousInHindsight: Some characters end up bearing quite a bit of a resemblance to characters from future games.
** A.N.V.I.L. Soldiers, with their getups and their eye-concealing helmets look quite a bit like [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 another Soldier...]]
** Your Mercenary minions slightly resemble [[VideoGame/TeamFortressClassic the Heavy Weapons Guy.]] Both use rapid-firing machine guns, too!
** S.A.B.R.E. Soldiers look like [[VideoGame/Left4Dead Bill.]]



** 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.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** According to the game files, all the Forces of Justice were to be named after real intelligence organisations:
*** P.A.T.R.I.O.T. was to be the CIA.
*** S.A.B.R.E. was MI5.
*** H.A.M.M.E.R. was the KGB.
*** A.N.V.I.L. was TEWU.
*** And S.M.A.S.H. could have been Interpol.

** Why do only Mercenaries decide to steal your cash if they defect? They are ''mercenaries.'' With 0 loyalty, they see no value in you as an employer, and decide to help themselves to their payment.

** 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.
** John Steele'd 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.]]

armed. 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
