* ItWasHisSled: In the first game, the twist that Sully survives being shot by Roman early on. The fact that he's continued to be a mainstay in the sequels helped with this.

** The lack of multiplayer in the ''Drake's Collection'' remastering. Some viewed the stated reason (Uncharted 2's multiplayer was still being played on the PS3) as a rather weak reason, especially since 2's multiplayer was critically acclaimed. Others felt the Collection was still worth the money with the three games within.

** ''Among Thieves'' and ''Drake's Deception'' had {{RenegadeRussian}}s and {{EvilBrit}}s as the predominantly caucasian antagonists of the respective entries. In addition, the upcoming ''A Thief's End'' has Drake going up against {{Amoral Afrikaner}}s for a PirateBooty.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: As if to address the UnfortunateImplications some gamers felt the previous games had with Drake shooting lots of nonwhite enemies and trying to steal treasures from other cultures, ''A Thief's End'' has him going up against {{Amoral Afrikaner}}s for a PirateBooty.

Both Tenzin and Salim have rescued Drake from near-death and are likable badasses.

* DesignatedVillain: One of the main criticisms of the series is that, aside from the main villains, the enemies in the games are more or less simply soldiers and/or security guards who are just doing their job. And yet Drake mows them down by the hundreds without a single shred of remorse or pause.

* UnfortunateImplications: [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/27-Uncharted-Drakes-Fortune There are some]] who feel the series doesn't exactly treat non-Americans (particularly nonwhite non-Americans) the greatest, with most of the mooks of the first two games being ethnic minorities, and Nathan being the only one capable of doing any actual treasure-hunting and clue-solving.

* ThatOneBoss: Lt. Draza in Uncharted 2. He has tough-as-hell body armor, and needs to be finished off with a melee QTE, in addition to his small fighting space.

Unlike most armored mooks who can still be killed with 2-3 well-placed headshots, this guy's armor covers him from head to toe and makes him completely impervious to bullets: the ''only'' thing that can harm him is a Hammer Grenade Launcher, which you have to wait until a mook carrying one arrives so you can kill him and take it. Until then, you have to try and survive the guy as he chases you all around a wide open area with very little cover, and a few rounds from him will finish you quickly.

** The casting of Laura Bailey as a South African was met by some with hesitation (Most notably by Greg Miller, who openly wondered about the casting choice in an interview with Naughty Dog), which others responded to by calling them hypocrites (As black actors like Cree Summer, James Earl Jones and Kimberly Brooks have been playing white characters for years without anyone caring, or that no one cared that a black actor was playing a white character in the 4th game itself).

WordOfGod said this issue was an unintentional effect of casting Bailey while the original design of Nadine was still a white South African, before eventually finalizing the finished look, and they didn't want to replace Bailey after-the-fact.

Without context, that last sentence can come off as confusing, so I added some words at the end of it to make it make more sense to outsiders without context.

Not YMMV, and zero-context examples anyway.
* CentralTheme: It's right in the titles of each game; luck, honor (or lack thereof), and deception. And finally, the end.
