* TheBattleDidntCount: Basically, if the boss talks at all and it's not the final battle, he doesn't die in this fight. The only exception is [[spoiler:Krew]], and yet he still manages to heavily influence the plot later via holographic recordings.



* DevelopersForesight:
** The Pelican in Sentinel Beach in the first game [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential can be blown to bits using the Lurker Cannon]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN04YXl1C9M#t=1m47s Getting the Power]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN04YXl1C9M#t=3m10s Cell this way]] is even a little quicker than using the "normal" method.
** Because cutscenes are rendered in-game, it's possible to access Sandover Village in ''Jak II'' and walk around in it. It can be accessed [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXElPyFIGvE by exploiting a menu glitch]].
** In ''Jak 3'', after you reach the end the sewer you access within North Town, the pipes you hop across to reach the part of the sewer that leads you into the Metal Head side of the city will be constantly shooting out poisonous gas. Even if you cheat and use invincibility to bypass them, the door leading to that part of the sewer won't open, thus preventing any sequence breaking.



* DudeWheresMyRespect: Torn doesn't like Jak, which is why he's given a lot of crappy missions.
** By ''Jak 3'', however, he's warmed to Jak considerably. Daxter on the other hand...
