* ThoseWackyNazis have awakened various types of [[NightOfTheLivingMooks mummies and ghouls]] when they DugTooDeep in their frantic search for artifacts. Those who ran out of ammos got dismembered and [[EatenAlive devoured]]. Their screams of horror and pain can be heard in the "Crypt" levels and in the penultimate level ("Castle"). The player better ''not'' run out of ammos in these levels...
** There is some {{Foreshadowing}} late in the first Village level where two Nazi officers comment about the chilling [[HellIsThatNoise screams]] coming from the catacombs, and [[EvenEvilHasStandards lament]] that their [[AFatherToHisMen own men]] were sealed in there.

** The Proto-Soldiers are still a hundred percent loyal to the Nazis, but they're MadeOfIron DemonicSpiders equipped with [[MoreDakka Venom guns]] and [[StuffBlowingUp Panzerfausts]]. And the Nazis want to mass produce them to use them against the Allies. [[OneManArmy Blazkowicz]] wins against them because he's just that badass, but the Allies really wouldn't stand a chance.

* Olaric (the first boss in the game) is an [[EldritchAbomination abomination]] that seems made of rotten muscles and skulls stitched together. He has also [[LudicrousGibs butchered Olga von Bulow to bloody bits]] and sends ghosts at B.J.'s face.
