!!''Red Faction: Origins'' provides examples of:

* BatmanGambit: Jake pulls the pin from a grenade that a couple of Marauders are carrying, and then tosses the pin back so they can disarm it. He does this because he knows that [[IOweYouMyLife Marauders will not kill anyone]] [[LoopholeAbuse who save their lives]].
* InvasionOfTheBabySnatchers: The White Faction kidnapped Jake's sister prior to the series. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that many more were kidnapped. The White Faction needed the children to maintain acceptable genetic diversity once they took over again.]]
