: A real gun is called by it's own fictional name.
- Straight: Trope Squad has a gun that looks remarkably like an M4A1 yet it's called as an ACT-57/Assault Rifle.
- Exaggerated: Every weapon in the entire game looks like the real thing, down to actual weapon specs in real life yet they still carry fictional/generic names.
- Downplayed: The M4A1 is labeled as simply an M4.
- Justified: Trope Squad takes place in an alternate timeline in which the name may have been changed.
- Inverted: A futuristic weapon is called the same as an actual M4A1.
- Subverted: The ACT-57 is implied to look like a real M4A1 yet it's shown to be completely different.
- Double Subverted: There's just two of them that have the same name.
- Parodied: Soldiers actually get weapons confused for their different names. Hilarity Ensues.
- Zig Zagged: Some weapons are actually called by their real names but some are labeled with fictional ones.
- Averted: The M4A1 is actually called the M4A1.
- Enforced: The developers could not get the license from Colt Defense to use the actual name, forcing them to use a made up name.
- Lampshaded: "Can't we ever use the real names of these guns instead of made up ones?"
- Invoked: "I think an ACT-57 sounds way cooler than M4A1."
- Exploited: "Calling it the ACT-57 could catch our enemies off guard."
- Defied: "No fancy names for this, just call it the M4A1, please?"
- Discussed: "I've seen this happen in way to many games and movies, I'd rather call it the real name."
- Conversed: "This is like that movie how they called this the M4A1 when it's really an ACT-57, priceless..."

, we couldn't get the rights from Kalashnikov so we had to call it that.
