* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler: The effects of the Composer on Ivanoff Station. You're "treated" to a close look at its effects on Doctor Sandra Tillson.]]

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: This may pull a few heartstrings but Cortana's rampancy is very similar to an actual human condition. Cortana's processors are eating themselves up until there's nothing left, while her closest friend seeks a solution that may or may not work. Essentially, Cortana has cancer for A.I. Or Alzheimers. In fact, one of the writers wrote the game while his mother was suffering from dementia.

Added DiffLines:

* UnderusedGameMechanic: The first mission introduces the player to wall-climbing. Unfortunately, the only other time it comes into play throughout the campaign [[spoiler:is the quick-time event that results in the Didact's defeat]].

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: It's obviously meant to be an EasterEgg, but the Didact's ship in the final mission contains a Gravity Hammer despite the fact that the player never encounters a single Brute throughout the campaign.

* CreatorsPet: Sarah Palmer. Despite the fan reaction to her being mostly negative, she's gone on to receive her own game (''Halo: Spartan Assault'') and comic series (''Halo: Initiation'').

* SpiritualLicensee[=/=]WholePlotReference: As noted in the {{WMG}} and [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] sections, ''4'', at times, plays out like an adaptation of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. Cortana and Chief's relationship in particular shares a lot of similarities between the relationship of Madoka and Homura.

* TheScrappy / LoveToHate: [[GeneralFailure Del Rio]]. Just Del Rio. Considering how 90% of Halo 4's plot only gets worse because of his mistakes, many fans hated him for making everything worse, or just love to hate him for how ignorant and idiotic the character turned out to be. Bonus points for being explicitly designed for players to hate him, and admit it,[[spoiler:[[TakeThatScrappy You cheered when the UNSC weren't happy when they found out what he did to Master Chief]]. ]]
** Another example would be the Didact, a GenericDoomsdayVillain who indulges in eloquent speech (that might remind you of Gravemind), instead of, you know, killing his enemy. The Chief and the player do not even get the satisfaction of beating him in a boss fight, instead he gets beaten in a QuickTimeEvent. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHDnCyeoQJc WatchMojo]] even described him as the [[Franhise/StarWars General Grievous]] of videogames, in the sense that his origins and motivations are only explored in secondary material but in the main event he comes off as bland and unoriginal.
