* [[BigBad Vladimir Makarov]] from the second and third games establishes himself when he and his men cold-heartedly slaughter an airport terminal full of civilians, using the PlayerCharacter trying to [[ReverseMole infiltrate Makarovís group]]. He then follows this by [[NiceJobBreakingItHero shooting the player in the head]] so that the [[FalseFlagOperation crime can be placed]] on the {{CIA}}, thus inciting the international community against the Americans. In the third game, he single-handedly starts WorldWarIII, massacring millions of people with bio weapons. In addition, it was he who ordered the nuking in the first game, as well as the one who even earlier saved Zakhaev, thus making him responsible, directly or [[GreaterScopeVillain indirectly]], for all the events of the series (including the actions of [[spoiler:[[WellIntentionedExtremist General Shepherd]]]] in the second game), leading to the deaths of several millions.

** [[BigBad Imran Zakhaev]] from the original game is the ruthless leader of the Russian Ultranationalist Party.

During his bloody coup in Russia his soldiers on his commands slaughter every unharmed civilian they find, also using villages as a test for their missiles. Zakhaev threatens to release on of'em of the entire USA if the U.S. forces won't leave Russia. Towards the climax he and his men kill an entire SAS squad who tried to stop him.

** The original has [[BigBad Imran Zakhaev]] and [[TheDragon Khaled Al-Asad]]. Al-Asad, with Zakhaev's help, overthrew a democratic government in an unknown Middle Eastern country, taking power in a coup. Their men kill anyone who resists and they line up innocent people and use them as target practice. Zakhaev supplied Al-Asad with weapons for the coup (including a nuke), and too staged a bloody coup, except on a much larger scale in Russia. He orders the slaughtering of whole villages. Together, they [[NukeEm nuked a major city]], Al-Asad's own capital, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people and about 30,000 American soldiers. Zakhaev did it to kill as many Americans as he could, and Al-Asad did it so he [[DirtyCoward didn't have to worry about the Americans coming after him]].

* {{Griefer}} / InternetCounterattack: "Boosting" is when players using outside voice chat on opposing sides would kill each other for the 25 killstreak Nuke with minimal deaths in the same location utilizing Tactical Insertions. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NITwwUHwy4 Booster Justice]] is the most well known response to this tactic.

* MagnificentBastard: MagnificentBastard: ** [[spoiler:General Shepherd]]. Everyone, and that means ''everyone'', are nothing but his pawns in his goal toward personal glory and supremacy.supremacy. ** Also, [[BigBad Vladimir Makarov]]. Prior to his debut, an attempt to capture him had already failed horribly. He is the world's most wanted terrorist, being the man behind several terrorist attacks against the West and constantly staying one step ahead. He makes his debut by conspiring with the Magnificent Bastard mentioned above [[spoiler:General Shepherd]] to orchestrate a False Flag Operation that would eventually lead to a Third World War, not long after which he betrayed him to the good guys. Throughout the course of the war, he keeps launching terrorist attacks across Europe to put the Western countries at a disadvantage, comes close to gaining access to Russia's nuclear arsenal and even kills [[spoiler:Soap]] when he anticipated an assassination attempt on him. All while still remaining ahead of his enemies over the course of two games. Sorry [[spoiler:Shepherd]], but Makarov is the true Magnificent Bastard of the Modern Warfare series.
