** During the final leg of the "Get to Know Jack" sidequest, if you turn the valve to summon the rakk holding the final ECHO log ''before'' pressing a nearby button, you will have one, ''one'' chance to kill the rakk before it vanishes, otherwise its ECHO log, and subsequently the sidequest, is LostForever.

* LostForever: The challenge that tasks you to complete optional mission objectives is an example of this. You only get one shot in each playthrough to finish the optional objectives, and that's it. Not even joining a friend's game to do the mission again will count towards the challenge if you've completed the mission already. If you're looking to finish the challenge, better take care.

** One quest line follows Taggart, an ex-boyfriend of Sir Hammerlock, where you find several of Taggart's echo recordings to his mother, ending with you looting what was supposed to be a Mother's Day gift. Which gives off one heck of an OedipusComplex...

** One quest Hammerlock gives you involves changing the name of the Bullymongs for his almanac. After a while he gives up and just calls them "bonerfarts", which the game will hilariously update them to for the duration of that quest.

* HostileShowTakeover: In one quest for the Torgue DLC campaign, Moxxi has you grab a bunch of ECHO's which has interviews with Mr. Torgue and herself. In the last recording, Tina takes over the show briefly, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWp5lZM9edA with very hilarious results]] (starts at 1:37 in the video).

* GasMaskMooks: Most bandits, groing from Marauders to Psychos. The guy on the cover is a Psycho, for instance.

** Everyone has the same kind of inventory space and carrying capacity, meaning that Gaige (5'3" and not particularly muscular, and the bionic arm doesn't have any effect on leg strength) can carry, counting active weapons and assuming all backpack upgrades, a total of 43 of Torgue's biggest guns, which are supposed to be heavier than other manufacturers.

* HangingJudge: The Sheriff of Lynchwood is a version where the judge is also the local legislature, jury, chief of police, and town executioner. Let's put it this way: the town being named "Lynchwood"? That was her idea. Her deputy mentions that there are more than 200 offenses that are punishable by death. This being ''Borderlands'' the recommended way to bring about judicial reform is [[MurderIsTheBestSolution with a revolver]].

** Turning it UpToEleven, if you have The Bee equipped while in a vehicle, any bullets you fire from that vehicle will include amp damage. However -- unlike how it works in normal operation -- taking damage does not cancel the effect, giving you limitless amp damage as long as you're in the vehicle. This only works for bullet damage, so the vehicle that takes the best advantage of this is the Machine Gun variation of the Runner.

* HundredPercentCompletion: '''Oh God!''' There are zillions of Challenges in the game and one of the Xbox 360/[=Playstation 3=] Achievements/Trophies requires you to get at least the first level in all of them (at least, the ones not located in a specific area). The trickier, area-specific ones usually have only one level but that means you need to do everything you can to find them all, usually in the form of boss challenges or finding all hidden audio logs or Vault Symbols. Also, that achievement: You have to reach level 5 in a very specific Shotgun challenge before you even open up the challenge that in all likely hood will be the last one you need for the achievement.

* KickTheDog: As if his attempt to kill you would not be enough to convince the player that Jack's evil, one of your first mission involves finding [=ECHOs=] of Handsome Jack gratuitously and mercilessly executing a major character of the first game.

* KilroyWasHere: The game has an ongoing challenge called [[http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Cult_of_the_Vault "Cult of the Vault"]] where the player tries to collect as many hidden vault symbols as possible, collecting badass points as a reward. Some of them show up in some very odd or difficult-to-reach places.
