1* BeamMeUpScotty: ''Call of Duty'' games often use the quote "only the dead have seen the end of war," attributing it to Plato.* CashCowFranchise: Since ''Modern Warfare 2'', each new entry in the series (up until and including Black Ops II, anyway) has become one of or simply ''the'' biggest-selling game of the year. In 2016, Activision verified the series' sales to be over 250 million units sold, putting it behind only Franchise/SuperMarioBros and Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, and ''that'' was before the release of several other games (there's also the fact that ''Pokemon'' and ''Mario'' both had large head starts and their sales are inflated by handhelds, which cost a lot less; not to mention there are 200+ Mario games compared to <20 COD games).** The 2019 MobilePhoneGame release marks the return of record-breaking numbers Call of Duty has been raking since 2012. Specifically, it accumulated over 100 million downloads in two weeks, making it the biggest mobile game launch ever.* FanNickname: Quite a few people who discovered the original, United Offensive and Call of Duty 2 [[SequelDisplacement after playing the next-gen games]] are now calling them "Call of Duty Classic". The first game was released with this title as a downloadable game after ''Modern Warfare 2''[='=]s release.** Black Ops is usually shortened to [=CoDBLOPS=] or just "Blops".* NamesTheSame: There are three important characters who shared the last name Petrenko in the series (Mikhail in ''[=CoD=]'' 1, Yuri in ''UO''[[labelnote:*]]Has nothing to do with the Yuri from ''[=MW3=]'' either[[/labelnote]], and Dimitri). None of them are related to each other.* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Tactical Insertions in online multiplayer. Originally debuting in ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Modern Warfare 2]]'', they were intended to allow players to choose where they would respawn after their next death. However some of the community used Tac Inserts as a way to boost for easy XP, unlockable equipment and camos, and easy killstreaks. As a result, Tac Inserts were banished to the Infected game mode in both ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts'' and ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare'', though this has not discouraged boosting.* TheWikiRule: [[ The Call of Duty Wiki]].
