Added DiffLines:

* BadassCrew: Charlie Murder. They're a punk rock band with magic powers that fight off a zombie apocalypse. How could that ''not'' be badass?


Added DiffLines:

* BlatantLies: Expert Thurgood's slogan is "I'm not a centipede!" However, on his billboard in-game, he clearly is one.


Added DiffLines:

* ClosetGeek: Tommy. The band met him when he was tinkering with robots, and he gets regular e-mails from an anime streaming site.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldenEnding: The good ending in spades. Events include:
** [[spoiler: Charlie Murder getting their careers back on track.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The Bullet Hell Hall band doesn't seem bothered by Charlie Murder fighting zombies, ninjas, and King Tepes right in front of them, and will simply continue their concert as normal.

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Circe seems to have this after zapping the band to near death in the final battle. Disobeying Mortimer's orders to kill them results in him impaling her with his scythe in a blind fit of rage, shortly followed by King Tepe's retaliation for killing his girlfriend leading to the same fate. Beelzabal crushes his contract with Gore Quaffer and leaves Mortimer to fend for himself.]]

The gameplay model, referred to as a "[=BrawlPG=]" by the developers, plays out as an unusual mix between ''RiverCityRansom'', ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'', ''VideoGame/FinalFight'', and ''VideoGame/TheSimpsons'' arcade game. Fallen foes drop pocket change which can be used to buy food and clothing. Food and drink provide both healing and permanent stat boosts, while clothing provides a whole host of benefits: torso clothing primarily provides significant defense boosts and elemental resistances, hats strengthen your character's magic power (here referred to as ''Anar[[KiAttacks chi]]''), and gloves strengthen your punches and kicks, as well as adding some extremely splashy [[ElementalPowers elemental damage.]] All of the clothing can also have tangential enchantments that are harder to quantify, such as life-steal, stun chance, or causing stasis on knockback.

* WhamLine: Throughout the game, you get phone messages from "a friend" who makes note of your progress and serves as MrExposition after major events and boss fights. The message before you fight Gore Quaffer simply reads [[spoiler:"By the way I am not your friend"]]. Though one could speculate "your friend" [[spoiler:is Paul taunting you]], the next two messages confirm that it's [[spoiler:[[TrueFinalBoss the Angel of Chaos]]]].

** In a playground, there are a few horse toys. [[VideoGame/SilentHill2 One of them is a bit bloody and has a triangular helmet on its head]], and another bears a resemblance to [[Main/MyLittlePony Rarity]].

** In the mental asylum, the band will wake up [[Film/{{Saw}} strapped in a trap.]] The boss of that level, the Lady in Tatters, also bears a strong resemblance to the Billy puppet.
*** Maybe doubling as a EarlyBirdCameo, there is also a movie poster outside of the theater showing the Lady in Tatter's face, named RAWR in similar font to Saw's title.

** The radio station seems to exploit the ongoing rivalry between Charlie Murder and Gore Quaffer to draw listeners in. The people they interview likewise don't seem too concerned about the ongoing ZombieApocalypse, and the one who is is cut-short.
