- Funny Moments: "I'm only kidding. There's no need for any countdown whatsoever."
- Moment of Awesome: Cole's entire life could possibly count as one, but arguably his actions at the Battle of Psi Serpentis, which Which he single handedly planned and orchestrated a situation which lured 200 Covenant ships to him, close to a gas giant which he nuked en-masse to initiate a mini-nova that obliterated everyone near it. And ONI has enough evidence to be 89.7% sure he's even escaped THAT and STILL LIVES.
- Moral Event Horizon: Gage in Dirt was faced with the prospect of his friends committing one by abandoning a class of children and their teacher they came across to their deaths by the Covenant all for the sake of robbing a bank and going AWOL. Subverted by Gage's heroic actions.
- Iron Woobie: Gage Yevgenny. He didn't join the ODSTs for nothing.
- Narm Charm: The entirety of Dirt is Gage Yevgenny stopping some random guy to tell him his life story as he dies. But it's still very moving.
- Squick: The graphic representations of the Flood in Mona Lisa and the Brute treatment of humans in Stomping On The Heels Of A Fuss.
- There is also a mention of Brute brothels.
- The Woobie: Cortana in Human Weakness. It's all but confirmed that the Gravemind mind-raped her.
