[[folder: Fridge Brilliance ]]

* Unmodded Tenno/Orokin weapons provides balanced stats against everything, which destroy Grineer and Infested alike. [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration The Corpus know this from studying Orokin technology]], and so they came up with their counter : lots and lots of energy shields. No wonder Ospreys are so annoying.
* Early-tier Grineer weapons tend to be effective against Corpus: they were fighting them for years before you showed up.
* High-tier or clan tech Tenno weapons usually focus on slash damage which strong against Infested, just like how the Orokin intended them to be used.
* On the whole, the ugly Grineer weapons compare very favorably to the sleek Corpus weapons. Why? Because Corpus are a megacorp and so their weapons are designed by marketing execs for ''sale''. The Grineer are soldiers, and so their weapons are designed by soldiers for ''combat.''
* Excalibur's Radial Blind. In Arthurian Legend, the first time Arthur's reign is challenged, he drew Excalibur and it blinded his enemies, sound familiar?
* Magnetic damage is amazingly effective against Corpus. But then, the Corpus are a faction that consists heavily of robotic and mechanized forces. And we all know what ''magnets'' do to computers.
* Valkyr (TheBerserker warframe) has a skill called "Hysteria" that darkens your vision, forces you into melee-only combat and grants NighInvulnerability for it's duration. [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/ShownTheirWork Actual Norse berserkers fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, and some theories suggest they did so by eating drugged food before battle (which also resulted in altered sensorial perception)]]. the Valkyr warframe isn't just emulating how a real berserker would fight, it's also using InterfaceScrew to (partially) give the player a sense of how a real berserker would '' perceive things''.
* All of Stalker's weapon are designed specially to kill warframes. His bow ''Dread'' and his scythe ''Hate'', the two weapons you're likely to face in combat against him, focus on slash damage whose status effect is [[NoKillLikeOverkill Bleeding]]. His Despair are advertised as SharpenedToASingleAtom, which is in turn advertised as an anti-Warframe weapon. A Nikana stance mod Stalker can drop upon his defeat is called ''Blind Justice''. The name probably refers to [[KnightTemplar what Tenno think of the Stalker.]]
** A fairly easy connection to make, but beyond having him in its picture stance Vengeful Revenant is especially descriptive of the Stalker. A revenant is someone who has returned from the dead. The Stalker is yet another shadow of the Orokin Empire that was thought to have been completely wiped out.
* Hek's namesake shotgun deals primarily Puncture damage, making it good against... other Grineer. Not unreasonable to suspect he uses it primarily to dispose of any other Grineer who might try to get in the way of his plans.
* Ordis is a [[MeaningfulName Cephalon]] in charge of operating your Liset. In biology, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cephalon_%28arthropod_head%29 cephalon refers to the head section of arthropods]]. Now look at your Liset again.
* About Ordis... Digital Extreme is a Canadian studio. And in French, computer is said "Ordinateur", and often abbreviated "Ordi". In plural, it's "Ordinateurs", abbreviated "Ordis" (though the s is silent). Ordis is an AI. I believe we have a {{pun}} here.
* Why was Alad V, a ''massive'' racist against the Grineer who openly insults them to their face, ever appointed Head of Grineer Relations? That was the Corpus telling the Grineer exactly what the Board thinks of them.
* The placement of the different syndicates' rooms in the Relay seems arbitrary at first, but they're actually divided up to show which syndicates best synergize with each other. The East Wing contains Cephalon Suda, Steel Meridian, and the Arbiters of Hexis, all of which a player can progress in at the same time without having to worry about losing standing with one of them while building up another. Likewise, the same can be done with the Perrin Sequence, Red Veil, and New Loka, which are all in the West Wing. The Conclave and Cephalon Simaris are both neutral and have no impact on standing with other syndicates, and as such, can be found to the north.
* It might not be too far of a stretch to think that every time you joined a Defense mission to protect Warframe Cyropod, [[https://youtu.be/r2RR6KBlcs8 you are protecting other 'sleeping' Tenno]], [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration just like you in the very beginning]].
* Archwing in underwater maps moves slower than in space, because of the friction involved.
* When ''The Second Dream'' was released, a player in official forum made an interesting observation. ([[https://forums.warframe.com/index.php?/topic/569558-u18megaspoiler-do-not-read-if-you-havent-done-the-second-dream-vor/ SPOILER here]]) : [[spoiler: If the Warframe and the Operator are seperate entity,]] then why should Lotus worried when Vor put Ascaris Device on the player. The answer is [[spoiler: Vor just basically recreated Transferance by tapping into YOUR head and gotten too darn close to the truth in the process.]] Had Lotus not helped, Vor might be able to create his own Warframe army.
* It's repeatedly hinted that the Sentients can subvert technology. [[spoiler: Of course they can convert The Stalker.]]
* The name Tenno; [[spoiler: Update 18 reveals the Tenno human operators are the children survivors of the Zarimen ''Ten Zero'' Void accident. 'Zero' is also said as 'O'. 'Tenno' is another way of saying 'Ten Zero'.]]
* The missions on [[spoiler: the Orokin Moon]] saw Corpus and Grineer fighting each other. The game never explains why, but we can safely assume that both of them are going after Orokin technologies stashed inside.
* If you are defeated by the Corpus Harvester assassin, your Warframe is taken into Alad V's custody and you must escape through a special mission to regain access. However, you can just swap to a different Warframe and never worry about completing that mission, which almost seems like GameplayAndStorySegregation... [[spoiler:until the Second Dream reveals that the Operator really is just switching to a different remote interface.]]
* With the recent revelations [[spoiler: within the Second Dream questline]] Kubrows make perfect sense. Why would you engineer a combat dog that is also such a sweetheart to it's partner off mission? Dogs are noted to have therapeutic effects on their partners [[spoiler: so maybe Margulis made the first Kubrows as her means to heal the Tenno, but after her death they were turned into weapons of war]].
* [[spoiler: Hunhow the Sentient,]] was torn apart into thousands of pieces, each still conscious and connected to a central mind. So it's rather fitting that he was buried [[Myth/ClassicalMythology on Uranus.]]


[[folder: Fridge Horror ]]

* The Corpus, whose name is derived from a common word depicted in Orokin history. Now becomes a ProudMerchantRace that worships Orokin greed and history [[ExactWords from its corpse]][[note]]Since ''Corpus'' written in Latin, means ''body''[[/note]].
* Survival missions are full of this:
** During the event that first introduced Survival missions, there was ''no extraction.'' You fought until you died. How many brave Tenno did the Lotus abandon to their doom?
** The Corpus can somehow turn off the oxygen generation for their frozen planetside outposts. Excavation has started replacing planetside Survival missions in recent months however.
* The Valkyr:
** The Valkyr is a Warframe that was a survivor of the Gradivus Dilemma, an event where Corpus exec Alad V disassembled several frozen Tenno to create his own special proxy, Zanuka, and the design of her Warframe reflects that. What appears to be some sort of mask is clearly the true form of her helmet, the inside plating quite visible in contrast to the flowing exterior, and a similar section along her spine shows the fine armor beneath the suit. In other places, what used to be the aforementioned organic exterior of the suit has been put back together with makeshift repairs, giving Valkyr's armor a very flayed and raw appearance. Furthermore, the rest of her suit is studded with pins, some of which seem to go through her arm, which could potentially be holding what's left of her exterior together. Combined with the obvious restraints that she now uses as weapons, and the constant anger and rage she barely keeps control of, and one can only imagine what horrors the Corpus did to her...
** Adding to this, take a good look at the color of the Valkyr Gersemi Armor (which is, according to the description, how Valkyr used to look like before Alad got his hands on her) and now look what color Zanuka has, both are turquoise, which implies that Alad literally ''Ripped Valkyr's Skin off!''
* Rescue 2.0 (introduced in Update 13.2.0) has Infested in prison cells. It's possible that the technocyte virus works so quickly that some random civilian, insubordinate Grineer, Corpus POW, Red Veil member, etc. was thrown in just 1 minute ago, and transformed into an Infested in as much time. It's equally possible (and potentially proven, by a recent Infested-themed questline) that the Infested are in the cells as captives for research purposes. The lengths they must have had to go through to take one of things ''alive''...
* The only indication that "synthesis scanners" you get from Cephalon Simaris are lethal is when he randomly starts talking about the ethics of murder and UnwillingRoboticisation out of nowhere, without anyone prompting him to. Considering nonlethal scanning/teleportation devices already exist, for Capture missions, that's a pretty big thing to leave out of the briefing document.
* Ancient Healer synthesis codex describe the Orokin Lorists during Infested attack. Ancient ''Healer'' who can restore health and boost armor for its allies. Does that sound like any Warframe you have?
* It's heavily implied that are still a few human colonies left. Take a good look at an unhelmeted Corpus again. And, also remember, the Grineer, during the Gradivus Dilemma, would've released the human colonies on Mars, if anyone actually fought for them. In other words, the only life a human in Warframe's universe is to either be subjugated by the Grineer, or join the Corpus as cannon fodder.
* Clem can only say three word sentences at most, and he's immune to the Twin Queen's brainwashing. Why? He must have been born with a birth defect.
* "Fight poison with poison." Ballas [[spoiler: created the original Saryn Prime, [[HeWhoFightsMonsters meaning that he's sending innocent children to work as a proxy in his own revenge scheme despite knowing damn well what happened.]]]]
* In the Sands of Inaros quest, one of the enemies the Sacred Vessels can send you to fight are Denial Bursas. While it's possible that the other eight possible targets existed in the Orokin Era (blue [=MOAs=], Detron gunmen, various Grineer laborers, Infested units) this one provably did not. Inaros had to have picked this target himself using data from the outside world, meaning ''[[AndIMustScream he's still alive after being torn to shreds and stuffed in three different burial urns]]''.
* The Red Veil blatantly torture Grineer, and utilize infested runners as hit squads. [[WasOnceAMan Runners are made from horrifyingly warped Grineer bodies]]. Put two and two together. The Grineer being tortured ''right next to the Runner Pen'' already has.
