** [[spoiler: How people feel about the Origins ending cutscene that reveals nothing ever happened. And that the entire story was made up.]]
*** [[spoiler: Don't worry, that ending is not canon. The actual ending was that the original four enter Agarta, and they are informed by Samantha about how the story in the original timeline folded.]]



* AuthorsSavingThrow: The storyline initially started as something that came to us through little Easter eggs and audio logs, leaving us to piece together the majority of the story by ourselves. Starting with "Moon" in ''Black Ops'', the story has been becoming more and more openly told, and in ''Black Ops III'', we get numerous cinematics to help move the story along in a much more coherent manner.

to:

** The two minute cutscene ending ''Revelations'' and presumably the entire saga, which still leaves countless questions, and doesn't completely resolve everything that's been brought up in the saga since 2008.

* CreatorsPet: An odd example in which this applies to fan favorites as well. During the ''Black Ops II'' season, Word of God asked fans to voice what they wanted to be the ultimate fate of the ''Green Run'' crew. By that point, the four had been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap and had a following, but the game designer in question retweeted many people expressing a desire to kill off the group and bring back the original cast. While people missed the original characters, nobody was too pleased that the ''Black Ops II'' characters and their story arcs were dropped like day-old pizza.

* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: Reactions to ''Advanced Warfare'' zombies mode can be summed up as "not a zombies mode as great as Treyarch's"

* PlayerPunch: Aside from the whole [[spoiler:killing the original characters]] thing, there's another in ''Gorod Krovi''. Remember Gersh, who you freed from the black hole he was trapped in in ''Ascencion''? He remember you and plead for mercy and asks why you're [[spoiler:shooting him to lead him to S.O.P.H.I.A who then tortures him]] as part of the EasterEgg.



* SpiritualSuccessor: PlayedWith in Shadows of Evil. While it seems like a second ''Mob of the Dead'', what with four bad people being brought to a hellish verison of their home [[spoiler:to atone for their sins]], the reason why the four are there is ultimately quite different.
* TearJerker: Maxis [[spoiler: being killed in front of his own daughter, and later he's helpless to protect her from Richtofen during "Moon". Then in ''Black Ops II'' we see he's been driven mad and he's willing to destroy the Earth and humanity to save his daughter. Even worse? In "Origins", Samantha implies this failed and he destroyed the Earth for nothing.]]

** The entire premise behind ''Revelations''. They were safe, after all they had been through their journey was finally over, their adventure ended and they were free to live in peace... But they still have to fight, one last time.

** And zombie monkeys return in Shangri-La. This time stealing power ups, and then changes the power up randomly. Apparently Treyarch got THIS message, as they don't appear in any other map.

* HilariousInHindsight: So just what does Creator/DannyTrejo do after fighting off George Romero. He becomes a [[Series/SonsOfAnarchy drug kingpin]] named...Romero.

to:

* HilariousInHindsight: GenreTurningPoint: For the series itself. After a highly enthusiastic reception to the deeper plot, cast, and mechanics of ''Mob of the Dead'', every single map has followed suit and the story itself has gotten more praise since it's gotten more coherent presentation.
* GrowingTheBeard: The ''Black Ops II'' season had a rough time getting off of the ground largely due to its' initial reception as a ReplacementScrappy. ''Mob of the Dead'', however, was seen as a major turning point for the season and the series in general as the maps become much more complex, deep, and have much more fleshed out characters and a far better received soundtrack (with Malukah becoming a fan-favorite singer).
* HarsherInHindsight: One of the funniest RunningGag's of the series has been Nikolai complaining about all of his ex-wives. [[spoiler: ''Gorod Krovi'' reveals that he only ever had one wife, and became a drunk so that he could forget the pain of losing her in an air raid.]]

** Creator/MichaelRooker was known for playing Merle Dixon in ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' at the time of the release of ''Call of the Dead''. During the map's opening cinematic, Rooker was criticized by his director for continuously missing when he tried to strike a zombie actor. A few years later, Merle returned to ''The Walking Dead'', and ultimately when he failed to shoot [[BigBad The Governor]], [[spoiler: it got him killed!]]

* ReplacementScrappy: The changes to the game in ''Black Ops II'', namely the new cast, new Easter Egg song performers, and mechanics, had a hard time winning people over at first.

** The spiders in Zetsubou No Shima have such a low hitbox you simply can't knife them while standing - attempting will most likely result with a hilariously innacurate miss - but the colision hitbox is high enough that you can't jump over them from the same height, and they deal the same amount of damage as normal zombies. They also can take a lot of bullet damage somehow. Getting downed by them usually results in screaming and a probably broken controller - and they're supposed to be easier to deal with than zombies!

** This has started to change after he became TheComicallySerious in Ascension [[spoiler: and is revealed to be [[ObfuscatingStupidity Obfuscating]] [[FakeDefector Brainwashing]], looking to punish Richtofen soon.]]
** If you're not growing on him after that, he [[TookALevelInBadass takes a level in badass]] in the Black Ops 3 maps with the simple addition of a katana, using it in cutscenes to cut through waves of people both zombie and human.
