* HilariousInHindsight: This isn't the only [[http://marathon.bungie.org/story/thatmarathonbook.html Marathon Trilogy]]. D. Alexander Smith's series, beginning in 1982 and ending in 1990, even starts off with the shipboard AI going Rampant and raising hell for the crew.

*** The Salinger Plank gives us the insidious [=MaserBoBs=], wielders of the powerful, perfectly-accurate Dangi Maser. If he sees you, you're as good as dead; they're more-or-less the human counterparts to the Enforcers. Luckily, you can pilfer their Masers and the ammo to load it with.

* HellIsThatNoise: Various. The Jjaro station in ''Infinity'' occasionally lets a strained sounds of age and of general lack of maintenance...which sounds more like a barely awake EldritchAbomination struggling against its prison.

*** It's more likely the KudzuPlot. A ton of subplots were introduced or hinted at and dropped in the first game alone ([[spoiler: JJARRO WERE AT TAU CETI, anyone?]]), and some plot points seem to contradict each other, and not because of Infinity's TimeyWimeyBall.

* OlderThanTheyThink: These games helped pioneer the idea of story-driven first-person shooters before VideoGame/HalfLife1 (the game most often credited with this innovation) was even a gleam in anyone's eye. Marathon is also credited with being the first computer-based shooter to use the mouselook control scheme, and was at least ''one of'' the first shooters to feature secondary ammo and allied [=NPCs=] (the automated defense drones in the first game, then the [=BOBs=] in the sequels).

It's also very likely the first game that allowed players to dual-wield weapons.

*** It's not in 7/4 so much as (8+6)/8, though.

*** It's not in 7/4 so much as (8+6)/8, more (4+3)/4 than true 7/4, though.

** Ditto for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxizUSV1EM8 Chomber]]. The fact that it's in [[ArcNumber 7]]/[[UncommonTime 4]] probably doesn't help.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The earlier releases of the Aleph One version of Marathon started with the PathwaysIntoDarkness ShoutOut, which many considered to be this. Fortunately for them, there is a plugin that removes that segment, and then removed entirely in later builds. Funny, because Bungie considered adding something similar to ''Durandal'' and later ''Infinity'', but both times it got scrapped.
