* CompleteMonster: In ''Warfighter'', [[BigBad the Cleric]], the leader of several [[MiddleEasternTerrorists terrorist factions in the Middle East]], is in reality [[spoiler:Hassan Rasheed, a wealthy Arab banker from Dubai]]. Convincing hundreds of people to follow his cause of "fighting the Eagle", The Cleric trains them and sends them to commit various terrorist acts, like taking half a dozen people hostage and trying to kill them and the soldiers who arrive to save them. Discovering a powerful bomb, called PETN, Hassan sends several [[SuicideAttack suicide bombers]] to various train stations to blow themselves up and kill countless innocent people. When Task Force discovers his base of operations and attacks it, Hassan sets his building on fire, along with all his men inside, and tries to blow himself up, hoping to [[TakingYouWithMe take down the US soldiers with him]].

** ''MedalOfHonor'' (2010):
*** Specialist Adams and his team HoldTheLine against a massive Taliban attack. For five minutes, you're forced to fight off endless attackers, who've got the high ground, as your cover disappears and enemy flank you.
*** An [[CommunicationsOfficer un-named technician]] gets fed up with [[GeneralFailure General Flagg's]] bullcrap and [[FakeStatic disconnects his call]] before he can order them to [[spoiler: leave the Neptune team to die]]:
--->''[[BlatantLies We seem to have lost the VTC, Sir.]]''
** Medal of Honor: Warfighter
*** ''Warfighter's'' penultimate level: Preacher pretty much [[spoiler: singlehandedly takes down an entire ship of terrorists using nothing but a pistol and whatever weapons he ripped from the enemy's dead fingers.]] The purest combination of OneManArmy, RoaringRampageOfRevenge, and UnstoppableRage you can ask for.
** Meta example: for the reboot EA worked with Tier 1 special forces, the elite of the elite. In discussion of the development of the game it was explained you couldn't just go to these guys and ask if they would like to be a part of it, you had to meet one person and build up a certain level of trust, then they will direct you to someone else and you build up trust with them, ect. Anyway they got these guys involved, and there was a scene where one of the soldiers is killed. EA could see they were uncomfortable with it and after being told something along the lines of, "There are only about five or six guys in the world who have the right to tell that story," the scene was removed.

** "[[OhCrap Oh fuck this]], [[GenreSavvy I've seen this movie]]. Private, switch with me! The devs have said explicitly that ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' was the film in question.
** A rare one in Warfighter. After shooting your way through a terrorist training camp and finding a cache of high explosives, Voodoo casually mentions there's enough there to blow the mountaintop off. After he's done discussing his mission plan with Dusty, he starts to give orders to the squad, only to find [[StealthHiBye they've all scarpered.]]
** While gearing up for a jump, Warfighter's secondary protagonist Stump is approached by one of his fellow [=SEALs=] and asked to give [[FlippingTheBird a message to his ex-wife]] in the event that he doesn't make it back.



* CultClassic: While few plays the game and nobody attempts to justify its campaign, ''Warfighter'''s multiplayer was surprisingly well-received by the players and fondly remembered due to its innovative features that few other games had, especially the buddy system.
* FanNickname: For Medal of Honor 2010, Modal Of Honfare.
** Medal of Honor: Doorfighter, after MiracleOfSound made a song called it in reference to Warfighter's rather thorough system to how you breach a door.
* FranchiseKiller: ''Warfighter'' was so poorly received that [=EA=] ended up putting the entire ''Medal of Honor'' series on hiatus, with many critics mocking it for personifying all the negative aspects of the Modern Military Shooter genre. It didn't help that the series was competing with the similarly themed ''Battlefield'' series, which was also owned by [=EA=] and performing much better on the market.
