Trivia / Call of Duty: Zombies
aka: Nazi Zombies

  • Actor Allusion:
    • Sarah Michelle Gellar plays a character in "Call of the Dead". Now her looks, personality, and fighting style... where have I seen that before? Oh, right.
    • If she runs out of ammo, she might comment on being a black belt in taekwondo. Which is actually true.
    • Danny Trejo wields... uh... Machetes.
    "This must be a nightmare!"
  • All-Star Cast:
    • Call of the Dead features the voices and likenesses of Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Michael Rooker.
    • Mob of the Dead features the voices and likenesses of Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Joe Pantoliano and Chazz Palminteri.
    • Shadows of Evil features the voices and likeness of Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal Mc Donaugh and Ron Perlman.
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Nolan North, known for playing generally affable good guys, voices an insane evil Nazi scientist.
    • And in Mob of the Dead, he plays as Brutus, a scary, powerful and not really nice prison guard, that constantly wants to hurt the mobsters.
  • What Could Have Been:
  • Word of God:
    • Actually pretty averted. The creators usually don't have a lot to say if anything at all on the story.
    • Kevin Sherwood did once imply an analysis of We All Fall Down was pretty spot-on; meaning the song was in fact from Maxis' perspective, retelling his conflict with Richtofen and his suspicions about a hidden evil behind the scenes of it all.
    • After the conclusion of the main story arc, in 2017, Treyarch gave us the complete timeline of the series, blowing pretty much everything away. Most of the synopsis fans had put together (seen on the Synopsis page here) was for the most part accurate, with some key details being clarified. Most notably, the Maxis endgame was confirmed by the timeline as canon for Black Ops II.
