** In-universe, the psychos became even more bonkers after Jack took over. When at first their babbles had a constant predatory air to them, now they also spout out things like "Bring me a bucket, and I'll show you a bucket!" or "You can't kill me! I'm already dead tomorrow!", among other hilariously nonsensical and fourth-wall-breaking quotes.

* FourPointScale: In-universe; an ECHO sim reviewer gives a bad review to a game Mr. Torgue enjoys... with a numbered score of 6/10. Mr. Torgue calls the reviewer out on his hypocrisy, saying that by any logical standard 6/10 is above average.

* HePannedItNowHeSucks: Torgue holds this opinion about the [=ECHOcast=] game reviewers in the Badass Crater of Badassitude, {{in-universe}}. In fact, having an opinion about a game that he disagrees with is such a BerserkButton for Torgue that he sends you off to kill them!

** Barf Skags are a lesser degree of this, usually through VendorTrash. Explained in-universe by the fact that Skags eat damn near everything, and vomit up whatever they can't digest.

* MobWar: The entire "Clan War" sidequest arc is one, with the Vault Hunters doing more increasingly brutal acts for both sides until it explodes into a massive firefight at the Lynchwood train station.

** The Slabs versus the Sawteeth (who had their own emblems and flags [[PaletteSwap despite having the generic appearance of the "bandit mooks" you've faced several times]]). There feud is told by Brick while you are on your mission of stealing some heavier firepower.
** More subtle than the Sawteeth, but the Slabs also had a fight with the bandits of Lynchwood according to the announcements of the town's deputy.

** [[spoiler: Even if Handsome Jack is dead, when you do the Double Rainbow Easter Egg he still ECHOs you because his voice is required for the achievement to pop.]]

to:

** Just after Sanctuary takes off, Lilith sends you back at the entrance of the road leading to Sanctuary with the bridge to the city now broken, and you will be required to exit via the Three Horns Valley. If turn around and re-enter, the entire location will be replaced with the Sanctuary Hole map, the layout being different, and the bandits are now occupying the place as if the story forgot the fact that the city has just taken off a few seconds ago.

* FissionMailed: There is a very straight-forward at this in one very specific moment. [[spoiler:Kill Yourself. No, seriously, it is a mission given by Handsome Jack. He has chosen a spot for you to commit suicide and gives you the choice of doing or not. It's hilarious, regardless of the outcome.]]
** Also, there's Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty DLC. [[spoiler:Last mission involves you finding the "marked spot" that should lead to a vault full of loot. Instead, you get EATEN by Leviathan. The best part? He is taking you and her straight to the Vault, but the BEST part is... Do you remember her pet Roscoe? She found him!]]

* KaizoTrap: Chests with Skag dens around? Certainly will have an Adult or Badass Skag around, most likely 3 or 4 of those. Just defeated a Crystalisk? Don't stay too close. And then there's [[spoiler:Wilhelm flipping a TRAIN on you.]]

* DifficultyLevels: Not present. There is an option to turn Aim Assist on or off, but if you've already done that and you're still finding things frustratingly difficult or boringly easy, tough case.

* HelpfulMook: Pixies in the Tiny Tina DLC become this if you manage to catch them, after which they'll give you random buffs and heals. If you shoot at them however, they turn hostile instead.

** Enraging Goliaths by scoring a headshot on them can be very useful to clear out areas that are crowded with enemies as Raging Goliaths are powerful, hostile to everyone (even their former allies) and can level up [[IncreasinglyLethalEnemy and gaining Badass ranks]], fully healing in the process. While the GOD-liaths can be extremely dangerous to the player, they also give much better loot than usual, as well as a massive amount of experience. This can be exploited with one of the (initially) friendly Goliaths in "Defend Slab Tower" - a Raging Goliath can rampage through all the invading Loaders on his own provided they hit him in the head (although they would also try to attack the Cargo you are protecting).
