* AcceptableTargets: Played with in the Modern Warfare series as making Russians and Arabs the villains is hardly controversial in American jingoistic narratives but much of the narrative is about how the entire war is a senseless waste of life.

* VindicatedbyHistory: The two sequels, but especially ''3'', are now treated better than when they were initially released, thanks in part to the massive hate over VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare.

* DracoInLeatherPants / KnightTemplar: There are a scary number of people who state, "[[spoiler:General Shepherd]] did some bad things, but his motives are really easy to sympathize with." Presumably these people are unaware that he's an analogue of Osama bin Laden (as described by Peter Bergen) with a massive chip on his shoulder against the weapons supplier of a foreign country[[note]]bin Laden described the Siege of Beirut as his prime motivation for 9/11[[/note]] and a plan to provoke war and create a crucible for jihad straight out of the al-Qaeda instruction manual. That the last level of the game has the player chasing him through a '''cave''' in '''Afghanistan''' should've been the clincher, plus the game's anti-nationalist subtext (well, ''text'', really) flat-out telling you [[PatrioticFervor ultranationalism]] is bad every time you die.

** The player character in the level "No Russian" of ''Modern Warfare 2''. You can either cross it by shooting civilians[[note]]like every beta tester who played that level, apparently[[/note]] or not cross it by just staying out of the terrorists' way. If you shoot the civilians and ''[[VideoGameCrueltyPotential laugh it up]]'', [[YouBastard you've crossed the Moral Event Horizon yourself.]] [[spoiler:No matter what you do during the level, it ends with the BigBad figuring out that you were a CIA agent and shooting you down as he gets away in a ambulance.]] It can be averted by skipping it whenever asked if you want to play this level or not, such as at the beginning of the game, and may be skipped during the level.

The Japanese version fully averts this; shooting civilians earns players a NonStandardGameOver.
