Dempsey is lying about his Medal of Honor.
Richtofen has been Obfuscating Stupidity the whole time.
All the characters are, in fact, in Purgatory.
Tank, Nikolai, Takeo and Edward die in Kino der Toten.
The Pentagon and Ascension Zombies are the result of Russian's experiments with Nova 6 and 115.Actually, it could be that the Nazi scientists the Russians co-opted during Vietnam, brought stories of the zombies with them, which lead to the Russians to try and emulate them with the Nova 6 gas (hence the gas zombies in Kino Der Toten). At first they didn't believe it, until their space monkeys and eventually the Cosmic Sliverback, returned from the moon, highly affected by the high amounts of 115 on the moon. (No clipping in "Five" allows you to read the back of the "Exposed" book in the Panic Room, which has a picture of the Cosmic Silverback and says "They sent him to the moon, but he came back".) But unlike the other zombies, the Cosmic Sliverback showed the same signs as the four main characters, growing stronger instead of being completely mindless. Cosmic Silverback sent his Space Monkey brethern to Ascension for some ulterior motive, while he participated in the events of Dead Ops Arcade. Once they saw it was true, they used humans, and began making the Zombies. After Der Rise, the four from World at War, take a teleporter. Since one of them (possibly Tank or Richtofen) had a Wunderwaffe, it was the equivalent of putting tinfoil in a microwave. The result of the 115 reaction warps them to Vietnam. The zombies they didn't kill are still crawling the ruins of the Nazi theater (it can't be the same time as the other four maps, because looking outside you see it's the Havanna map. After their success in recreating the Nazi Zombies, the Russians launched them on the Pentagon to eliminate Kennedy and Castro, thus being the only "power" left in the war. The bowels of the Pentagon show experiments of their own with Nova 6, and hints that the Pentagon Thief went insane from the gas or from 115 since it was implied to be that the Winters Howl was American-made, as well as dismantling a Nazi teleporter, which led to the teleporter tech in the Pentagon. (In fact, the Russians may not have sent them at all, they could've came from the teleporter when the Thief began taking it apart. The Russians just went with the flow and sent Gas Zombies). The Pentagon Thief had gotten stronger instead of being a zombie (no glowing eyes and intelligence to use the teleporters) and started to cause trouble. Before that, the scientist seen in the comic at the beginning of Ascension (Gersch), could've accidentally opened a teleporter and almost released the girl (Samantha, the one Rictofen left to die with her father, and presumed to be the demonic announcer), hence why he says "you must restore the power before SHE comes", which implies she's more powerful than the zombies. Meeting all the requirements of the mission will open a portal, with the man thanking the characters and then a demonic scream of what can be assumed to be him stopping Samantha's return. Playing with the Red Phones in Ascension allows you to overhear the fight between Kennedy and the Zombies at the Pentagon, which implies they take place at the same time. Kennedy proved to be too smart to take down with force, so they sent Alex Mason to do the job. Later on down the road, George Romero finds Nazi documents telling about the zombies and 115. So he manages to recruit the four stars and take them to Sebirea under the guise of filming another zombie movie, but in reality trying to learn the secret of 115. All hell breaks loose, and George gets kidnapped, then 115 makes him stronger and retain his awareness somewhat. Meanwhile, our four time lost heroes wind up stuck in a room with a broken teleporter, and task the stars to help them get the teleporter in the room operational (and find Nicholai some vodka). Doing so sends them to Paradise, which is believed to be a bigger version of The Temple from the Nintendo DS version of Black Ops. BTW: Is it poor writing when the storyline of a completely unrelated minigame makes the main storyline BETTER?
MW 3 will feature Barack Obama, Osama bin Laden, John Mc Cain, and (for good measure) Sarah Palin at Guantanamo Bay.
There'll be a sequel to Call of the Dead.
The zombies are ghouls.And the Demonic Announcer is actually the Vampiric Announcer. This explains a lot about the zombies, such as how they can survive with their heads blown off completely, their glowing eyes and possibly how they gain power with every round.
The reason why the technology in Nazi Zombies is so incredibly futuristic is because they got the funding from the Philosopher's Legacy from the Metal Gear Solid series
Black Ops 2 will introduce a new female player character.Based entirely on the teaser poster for Zombie Mode, which prominently features a shotgun-toting woman holding a zombie's severed head. This will result in Dempsey loudly celebrating her arrival, given his previous complaints about the lack of a girl in the group. Also, fangirls will promptly declare her a Mary Sue.
Richtofen still controls the zombies as of Black Ops II.Look at the zombies in the reveal trailer— their eyes are blue. It might be safe to say that Richtofen will be the eventual Big Bad for these new survivors to fight.
All the original characters, bar Richtofen, are dead.Theories for how they died are anyone's guess.
Either Marlton or Stuhlinger is hiding something important from the other characters.Each of them has an odd, out of place quirk; Marlton's voice can be heard in Nuketown Zombies, talking about "banishment" or something, while Stuhlinger is the only one who can hear Richtofen. There's a possibility that one of these things could be hinting at them having some greater knowledge about the whole zombie situation, which could have either good or bad connotations for the rest of the survivors.
The gauge on the side of the Ray Gun is a Geiger Counter.
A future Zombies DLC for Black Ops II will feature Ronald Reagan, Oliver North, George H.W. Bush, and Manuel Noriega in a "Five"-style map.
Tank, Nikolai, Takeo and Sammantha will time travel back to the very beginningAfter witnessing Earth devastation from both the zombies and the nuke rockets, they decide to try to stop the whole thing in the first place by going to earth to find a working time machine. They managed to get to the machine and travel back to ww2 a day before the initial zombie breakout. However Samantha Maxis in Richtofen's body was discovered and killed by the past Richtofen, but she managed to take control of her past self. When Samantha told her father Ludvig Maxis about Richtofen plan. Ludvig ordered the SS guards to kill Richtofen but before Edward died he injected himself with a large dose of 115 and resurrected as a Revenant with much more powerful lighting abilities than George Romeo and resembles a Despoiled from Wolfenstein. He then kills Ludvig unleashes the zombies and death hounds on the group 935 facility. To get rid of Samantha and the heroes Edward had unleashed Fluffy who recently turned into a death hound. But Samantha in her grievance of the murder of her father, temporarily transformed into a state similar to Revenant Richtofen and stopped the attacking Fluffy by imposing her memories of what Fluffy was before Fluffy's transformation calming the death hound. Samantha took control of a few zombies and used them to cover the escape of herself and the other heroes.
Brutus is an alienMy reasons for believing this is the fact that despite most of the futuristic technology are products of Group 935, the M.P.D was present on the moon before Richtofen ever teleported there. Richtofen even states it is alien in origin in a radio message. My theory is that an alien race created Element 115 as well as the M.P.D, and some of it fell to Earth in the form of Meteorites. Brutus is a member of the alien race, perhaps sent to Earth to retrieve the element. His species has technology capable of warping time, explaining all the crazy shit that happens in Mob of The Dead. Why he does it, who knows? Perhaps he is performing a morality test on the prisoners, and is really a good guy? Either way, that is my theory.
The whole storyline is a giant loop, and it is a story created to scare children.Le Tombeau, more commonly known as Origins, is said to be a sequel to the beginning, a prequel to the beginning, a sequel to the middle, a prequel to the middle, a sequel to the end if the end of the sequel was a prequel, a prequel to the end if the beginning was a sequel to the middle and a prequel to the beginning. In other words, it has no beginning, middle, or end. It's a loop. Also, so far, Mob of the Dead has essentially been a giant bowl of symbolism for the storyline. Tank Dempsey was sent to extract Peter Mc Cain by a man only known as Cornelius Pernell. This man started the loop. But why? Because that was a self-insert in a comic book. The whole storyline was created to scare children. Cornelius is the Author. Arlington is the Illustrator. Maxis is the Editor.
The end cutscene of Origins was ITSELF a fantasy.Seriously, when do the average pair of children dream of massacring Zombies? This Troper believes that the whole of Origins, cutscene and all, was made up by Samantha, perhaps while trapped inside the MPD to pass the time. It's obvious why she made up the scenario of the four men fighting the zombies in WW 1, but she fantasised the ending because she just desperately wants to cling to that one last good memory, of her life before the Zombies, with a loving father and friends. Sorry about the spoiler, but I feel like it was needed.
The Ghost Women in Buried are souls that have somehow escaped from the MPDThey're hostile because their imprisoment has driven them insane.
BO 2 Zombies (and Moon, by extension) takes place in 2012.It was the year BO 2 came out, AND it fits nicely into the 2012 apocalypse theory
