* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Bandit-made guns all have misspelled names. They can't even spell "SMG", and there's a chance to get a gun that spells "accurate" wrong. ''Twice.'' They also seem unable to grasp that "carbonated" is not an intensifier of "carbine".

** Roland's refers to a "cachet of weapons", rather than a "cache", which is a bit immersion breaking - it reminds the player that Roland is actually some guy in a recording booth.

** The cover itself has representative art shown only in a splatter pattern above a psycho's head, with him pressing finger-guns below his chin.

** Krieg's Buzz Axe Rampage is going on a Buzz Axe Rampage, chopping anyone stupid enough to stand still and shoot at the massive Psycho charging at them. While there are items that reduce cooldown Krieg can also take damage to fly into another rampage sooner. His Mania skill tree focuses on his melee attacks and the Tier 6 skill is "Release the Beast", where upon using [=BAR=] at 33% health Kreig turns into a Badass Psycho Mutant with 100% Melee damage and 50% damage resistance while stacking with items and his Bloodlust skills "Taste of Blood" (increases damage resistance) and "Blood Trance" (increases Rampage time).

** [[spoiler:For the entire campaign of ''Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep'', the 6 vault hunters are downstairs torturing a Hyperion spy. At the end of the campaign, Maya walks upstairs and tells everyone that they've obtained the access codes to the Hyperion Moon Base.]]

At the end of the campaign, Maya walks upstairs and tells everyone that they've obtained the access codes to the Hyperion Moon Base.]]]] Assuming she's talking about the Helios station, this hook apparently went unused, since by the end of ''VideoGame/TalesFromTheBorderlands'' Helios [[spoiler:has crashed to the surface of Pandora. None of the Vault Hunters from ''Borderlands'' or ''Borderlands 2'' was involved.]] However, there is still a little room for the hook to be used in an {{Interquel}} between ''Borderlands 2'' and ''Tales''.

* ObstacleExposition: Angel gives this to the heroes at the beginning of the "Wildlife Preservation" mission, describing the "three impassable security hurdles" they will have to overcome to steal the Vault Key. The majority of story missions from that point involve dealing with these obstacles.

** Lampshaded by Handsome Jack in regards to weapon names; Hyperion uses corporate buzzwords, Vladof names all sound Russian-ish, Bandit guns are all horribly misspelled, etc. Specific weapons types by specific manufacturers have narrower themes, like Dahl submachine guns (which are named after fearsome animals), Jakobs sniper rifles (the names and prefixes of which all come from the Native American Chinook language), Maliwan rocket launchers (which have names and prefixes that all start with the letter "P"), and Vladof sniper rifles ([[Literature/AClockworkOrange Nadsat-named]]). The established themes are largely, but not completely, ignored by Unique and Legendary weapons.

*** TokenEvilTeammate: Krieg. A Badass Psycho with dissociative identity disorder and a former experiment of Hyperion. However, he is working with the other Vault Hunters because [[LoveRedeems he believes Maya will help make him sane]], and stopped from killing the innocent by the remnant of his former identity.

Added DiffLines:

* PermanentlyMissableContent: 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.
