* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSvTqfmv3DE original version of the game]] was very much this. The final product less so, but it still has several combat mechanics abandoned by its sequals as well as remnants of its original self that separate it from the rest of the series.

* NotSoUseless: The cash box for a tour of the World's Largest Bullet deducts eight million dollars from you with no benefits other than an achievement, and it can be used multiple times. However, there is no better money dump to prevent cash overflow, a bug in the game code that triggers if you surpass 2^31 dollars (close to 2,150 billion) and '''zeroes''' your money tally if you die.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The Hyperion Satellite at the end of the game. Handsome Jack, the company's CEO, is not only the BigBad of ''Borderlands 2'', but [[spoiler:it's revealed that Jack was using Guardian Angel to manipulate the Vault Hunters throughout the plot of this game]].



** In the sequel, Lilith mentions that it turns out that most members of the Crimson Lance were actually decent people who were just doing their job. She's even a little sorry about killing so many of them (although it's only a little, since they ''were'' trying to kill her and the other Vault Hunters at the time). In the sequel, they eventually join Roland in his war against Hyperion as his army, the Crimson Raiders.

** On the extreme other end of the scale is the Skullmasher. It's a shotgun shaped like a sniper rifle that fires 5 pellets close enough to put all 5 of them on someone's head reliably in almost any situation.

* FramingDevice: Marcus telling a story to his young son (although we're never taken out of the action for it). It comes up in all the DLC's except ''Underdome'', although ''Robot Revolution'' is puppet theater.
