** The three "Furies" rescued from the final mission of ''Operation Progeny'': like Delta-2, they are pre-generated characters with generic voices, but their Psionic potential makes them all {{Badass}}es on the level of Zhang or even Annette herself. It helps that two of them seem to be a BrotherSisterTeam as well.

*** Sectoid interrogation is codenamed "Roanoke". [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roanoke_Colony Roanoke Colony]] was established at the coast of what is today North Caroline in the late 16th century by more than a hundred English settlers. A ship returned there a few years later and found the colony completely deserted, with no signs of struggle, and none of the settlers were found in later investigations.
*** Sectoid Commander interrogation is codenamed "Voynich". [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voynich_manuscript The Voynich Manuscript]], a book dating to the 15th century written in an unknown script and language, and no one has been able to decipher it thus far.

*** If you capture an Outsider alive before completing your first alien interrogation, Vahlen will keep nagging you about killing any future Outsiders ''despite the fact you already have one in storage''. At least this will go away after you research the crystal.

** With Training Roulette, you can potentially get incredibly powerful characters by mixing and matching certain combinations of skills. How about an Assault class with Sprinter and Low Profile to help them close the distance with a shotgun and then be in decent cover afterwards? Low Profile also pairs well with the Mimetic Skin gene mod as it allows essentially any cover to trigger the free ghost stealth. You could even pair it with Muscle Fiber Density to leap up buildings or Adaptive Bone Marrow to make sure that even if your Assault does get hit, they'll be able to heal it up over time and likely recover quickly after the mission anyways. Even with the restrictions that covert operatives can face, with the right set of equipment and abilities it'd be like EXALT was essentially infiltrated by superman.

* PortingDisaster: ''Enemy Unknown Plus'' on the Vita suffers from a massive amount of issues. Loading can take up to three minutes from startup to actually playing the game, and load times are still pretty long once you actually start playing. There are plenty of graphical glitches, which occasionally include not showing where a character's movement becomes dashing and the smoke from smoke grenades becoming invisible. The framerate also stutters every now and again. Using any item in a soldier's inventory when they're in cover has a chance of them clipping into it and being stuck and unable to move, even with explodes destroying the thing they were stuck on. And lastly, even if you do manage to get through everything, it has a tendency to crash later on in the game!

** Already popular for being a clear FourStarBadass that wants to make the aliens pay for killing his men escorting him, Peter Van Doorn's addition in the [[VideoGame/XCOMlongwar Long War mod]] as a playable soldier led to many players attesting him to be a reliable star player on their team and quickly mutated him into being an unstoppable action hero that only doesn't kill all the aliens by himself because it's not fair if he has all the fun.
