* CoOpMultiplayer: Tag-along style. The host determines where in the plot the players play in, and also has the character used to scale enemies. If the guest is behind the host in level, he will be up against constant beef gates. If behind in plot, any completed missions will be treated as "ineligible", and won't transfer over to the guest. As such, co-op players should mainatain progress parity.

* InfernalBackground: In Claptrap's Robolution DLC, the Vault Hunters are introduced to Mr. Blake, head of MegaCorp Hyperion's Mercenary relations decision. His introductory splash is backed with flames, which when coupled with his pointy hairstyle makes him look like the Devil. However, despite seeming sinister at first, he turns out to be genuinely the nicest person on Pandora.

* CelShading: The game is often mistaken as using it, but the lighting and shading are realistic, not cel.

* GunPorn: According to TheOtherWiki entry for Borderlands, the debug menu for the game shows over three million guns (varying in stats) are available in the game. According to the devs, they stopped counting once they hit ''17 million''.

* FollowTheLeader: The developers have cited many influences to the game, even saying at one point this game stemmed from wanting to make "VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}, but with co-op". Of course, in the end, there were many differences from that basic statement. It's more [[XMeetsY Fallout 3 meets... a lot of stuff.]]

''Borderlands'' is a SpaceWestern HeroShooter with RPGElements (Or an ActionRPG with [=FPS=] elements) for UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}, UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, [[UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows Windows]], and [[UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh OS X]] developed by Creator/GearboxSoftware, creators of the ''VideoGame/BrothersInArms'' series and the three expansion packs for the original ''VideoGame/HalfLife''.

The game concerns [[AnAdventurerIsYou four different adventurers]] who arrive on the desert planet of Pandora in search of an alien vault said to contain vast stores of untold wealth, power and alien technology. The only problem is no one seems to know where this Vault is Pandora is a backwater world where no one wants to live, filled with mutated monsters and violent convicts left over from a MegaCorp's previous mining operations. Luckily, a [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection "Guardian Angel"]] appears to [[AnAdventurerIsYou whichever character you picked]], claiming the Vault is real, and that [[CallToAdventure she will help you to find it]].

The game also uses an extremely complex loot system: using a procedural generation program, every weapon, shield and class accessory you get is [[GunPorn randomized]], allowing for about EleventyZillion different combinations.

Further, the game has four [[DownloadableContent DLC]] packs developed in the year following the original game's release, consisting of:

* ''The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned'': Dr. Ned, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial who is totally not his twin brother Dr. Zed wearing a fake moustache over top of a surgical mask]], managed to unleash a ZombieApocalypse upon Jakob's Cove.

There was some consideration to re-release this game for UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 and UsefulNotes/XboxOne after the release of ''Borderlands: The Handsome Collection'' (a remastered re-release compilation of ''Borderlands 2'' and ''Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!'' with all their DLC) on those platforms. While that never happened, the Xbox 360 version was made backwards-compatible for Xbox One. Installing any version of the game on the platform automatically gives players the ''[[GameOfTheYearEdition Game of the Year]]'' edition containing all DLC. However, this is only on Xbox One; unless you've previously bought all the DLC or the original ''Game of the Year'' release for 360, this method does not provide you the DLC on the Xbox 360 itself. In other words, you want free DLC from buying that pre-owned original disc at [=GameStop=]? You better have an Xbox One to play it on.
