* 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.

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Could you not pick up Scarlett's gun? Because that is stealing. And stealing is wrong.

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.

** The orange-rarity Infinity pistol literally has a one cartridge sized magazine, but it doesn't consume ammo or ever need to be reloaded.

** Lilith is [[TheRoleplayer The Roleplayer]].
** Brick is [[TheRealMan The Real Man]].
** Mister Torgue is [[TheLoonie The Loonie]].

to:

** Lilith is [[TheRoleplayer The Roleplayer]].
Roleplayer]], who wants to get involved with the story, and gets irritated when things get inconsistent or when people do things to disrupt the game.
** Brick is [[TheRealMan The Real Man]].
Man]], who's primarily there to fight things and kill stuff.
** Mister Torgue is [[TheLoonie The Loonie]].Loonie]], who briefly takes over as GM and sends the player on insane missions, including one where you have to chase down a douchey bar patron and punch him so hard he explodes, until Lilith convinces Tina to get rid of him.



* PoorCommunicationKills: After she has gone rogue, [[spoiler: Angel]] enigmatically mentions that Lilith cannot be allowed in her chamber with no further explanation. Naturally, this provokes [[FieryRedhead Lilith]] into coming along anyway, which leads to the [[spoiler: Warrior being released]].

* SaveScumming: While the game largely averts this, players can skirt around it, at least on the PC. When turning in a quest that gives a reward item, the game allows you to look at the item first. If you don't like it, "alt-tab" right away, open task manager, then close the Borderlands 2 program. The game will close without having saved, allowing you to try again in the hopes of getting the item you want with more desirable stats on it, such as the quest gun having a corrosive effect on it rather than electric.

** Some class mods grant health regeneration; typically not fast enough to change the flow of combat, but sometimes enough to fill you back up to full between fights. Maya can get one that bestows health regen on her friends as well.
