** ''Pandora Tomorrow'': [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Suhadi Sadono]] is the [[BigBad leader]] of the Indonesian terror cell Darah Dan Doa (Blood and Prayer). A member since his youth, back when it was just a street gang, Sadono once helped fight the Communist influences in Indonesia, until the CIA stopped backing them. In retaliation, Sadono used a modified strain of smallpox and places the strains in containers all over the United States, which he demonstrates by releasing the virus in Texas. While fighting in front-line battles, Sadono protects himself from capture or death by [[DeadManSwitch ordering smallpox to be released should he be unable to make a call to his mercenaries]]. Described as [[PsychopathicManchild having a child's idea of war]], seeing both civilians and soldiers as acceptable targets, Sadono is one of the most vicious and dangerous terroists Sam Fisher faced in his career.

* ScrappyMechanic: Although they might just be a vocal minority, some ''Splinter Cell'' fans absolutely ''hate'' the Mark and Execute feature added in ''Conviction'', feeling that it makes the game too easy even on the highest difficulty.

** The "three alarms and game over" mechanic. Nobody complained when ''Chaos Theory'' replaced it with alarms making mooks get progressively more well-armoured and alert instead.

* {{Narm}}: The enemy chatter in ''Conviction''. It's quite humorous to see all these government agents and PMC mercs hunting for StealthExpert Sam Fisher by running around, shouting at the top of their lungs that they remember what happened at the airfield.

** In ''Blacklist'', the phone calls between Sam and Sarah are hard to take seriously because, despite it supposed to be an exchange between father and daughter, they sound the exact same age. Which isn't far from the truth. Sarah's voice actress is actually older than Eric Johnson.

* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: The [=Five-SeveN=] pistol in ''Conviction'' is the only pistol that most players use because it has the highest mag capacity of the pistols, a built-in silencer, and it's the only gun in the game that can mark ''[[GameBreaker four]]'' targets. The fact that you find it very early in the game also helps its popularity.

* HarsherInHindsight: The Shadows terrorist organization, meant to be more dangerous than Al-Qaeda and tech-savvier while even more fanatical, is actually a fairly decent approximation of ISIL.

** An enemy in the first two games and ''Blacklist'' will trigger Vietnam-like flashbacks for players. ''The freaking dogs''. Who can sniff out and detect the player no matter if they are in the shadows or not.

** Which version of ''Double Agent'' is the best one: the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox version? Or the Xbox 360/PS3/PC version? With both versions being made by different divisions of Ubisoft, having completely different level designs, different gameplay mechanics, and different ways parts of the story play out, there is some debate over which one is superior. The PS2/Gamecube/Xbox version is more akin to the previous three games in terms of gameplay, while the Xbox 360/PS3/PC version introduces some significantly new elements (such as levels where Sam is out in broad daylight).
