* HeyItsThatVoice: [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Lust]] (or [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Serah]]) and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Snow]] are two of voices of the female and male Boss, respectively, they both say the F-Word a lot too.
** The female boss is [[VideoGame/{{NieR}} no stranger to being foul-mouthed. She just needs a revealing outfit to go with it.]]
** Creator/RobinAtkinDownes once again voices [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim a British-accented kingpin of crime]] should the player use the British Boss voice.
** There's a pretty ridiculous amount of overlap between the various boss voices and VideoGame/{{Persona}} characters as well.
** [[Creator/YuriLowenthal Professor Genki & Matt Miller]] are [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon]] & [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Ben]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien Tennyson]].
*** [[Anime/CodeGeass Suzaku Kururugi]] has become a Britania....er British Cyber Gang Leader. He also voices jerk movie director, Andy Zhen.
** Angel de la Muerte is Wrestling/HulkHogan.
*** Likewise Bobby, one of the announcers of Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax, is [[Wrestling/RobVanDam The Whole F'n Show]].
** Recognize Viola [=DeWynter's=] voice? You probably watch a lot of porn, then... because she's Sasha Grey.
** At one point, the Boss will call Nyte Blade a shitty vampire show. [[Creator/ElizaDushku Maybe Boss and Shaundi prefer Buffy and Angel?]] Or maybe VideoGame/BloodRayne.
** Speaking of Vampires, here's a rare HeyItsThatGuy from a video game - The Morning Star specialist bears a striking resemblance to [[VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines Maxmillian Strauss.]]
** A possible protagonist voice is done by Creator/TroyBaker. This time, he isn't [[VideoGame/{{Catherine}} scaling giant towers made of blocks in nightmares that threaten to kill him.]]
** The Zombie voice is by none other than Creator/SteveBlum.

* EnforcedMethodActing: Director Zhen uses live ammunition and real actors inside the planes instead of drones just to get cinéma vérité. He's not filming people pretending to kill you, he's filming people actually trying to kill you.

* ThrowItIn: The rickshaws that inexplicably explode when destroyed during the getaway from the Safeword nightclub was initially just placeholder behaviour until they could be given proper scripting. When that was implemented, a vocal faction of the dev team insisted that the placeholder script was funnier, and they got their way just days before the game went gold.

** Originally, you were going to unlock the Syndicate tower as a crib if you chose to spare it, and it's still presented as one. Also, the storyline changed many times during development, leading to many elements being dropped. Shaundi was originally going to get a big piece of CharacterDevelopment and deal with survivor's guilt instead of going all AxCrazy, and Gat was [[spoiler: going to be revealed as alive and well, and in need of rescue.]]
*** That second plot appears in Saints Row IV.
** Averted with the Fart in a Jar which was originally cut. After revealing that it was one of those ideas that had been cut there was outcry that it should be Included. Volition listened and it was added to the game.
** Originally, the gang specialists were going to be included as Homies. There is a TON of recorded dialogue for each of the gang specialists, especially Kirsten, the Decker's cyber-skating Shock Hammer wielding specialist.

*** Originally, Viola and Kiki were supposed to be Japanese twins named Natsuko and Yukako (nicknamed Suki and Yuki) who ran an all-female gang made up of heavily armed former prostitutes to counter the original all-male Morning Star with Philipe and his well-dressed henchmen. However, midway through development the plan was scrapped, both gangs fused together to streamline the story, and Viola and Kiki were made Caucasian to avoid the whole "badass Asian chicks that are subservient to an older man" stereotype. This explains why Morning Star has the most variations of grunts (8), why it is the only gang with male and female grunts and the extremely stripperiffic outfits of the females.

female grunts compared to the males' more formal attire.

*** Trailers and advertisements for the game showed Philippe Loren as a much younger man and painted him up to be the final boss of the game as well as the mastermind behind the entire syndicate. In the actual game he is an old man who [[spoiler: while fairly badass in the short time he appears in, gets killed off early in the game and replaced with Killbane. He doesn't even get a proper boss battle.]]

** Killbane was originally going to use a dirty bomb to destroy Stillwater, giving the player extra incentive to kill him. This was dropped alongside Shaundi's survivor's guilt story arc for being "too dark".
