* GameBreakingBug: The UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 remastered version saw many people report that their copies wouldn't even let them ''start the game''. Not all copies were affected, but it was an alarming number of them. The UsefulNotes/XboxOne versions, to its credit, wasn't nearly as widespread with this issue, if any players of that release even bumped into it at all.

* EnemyPosturing: If he knocks you down during his boss fight, Randy Tugman will sometimes celebrate by doing a PelvicThrust in your face, leaving himself open to a counterattack.

* AfterTheEnd: Or, more specifically, after the zombie holocaust. It's been long enough between outbreaks that the existence of zombie hordes is now a way of life and one enterprising man has engineered a sick reality show devoted to slaughtering penned-up zombies. Malls now have fortified safe rooms complete with airlocks in the event of another outbreak and all of the wall of the safe room are covered in helpful anti-zombie safety tips. Of course, just because there are safety measures in place doesn't mean another outbreak can't happen, especially if sabotage is involved...

** A good two-thirds of the survivors don't seem to appreciate that they're in danger at all. Europa's much more concerned with being outside underdressed than the fact there are zombies about, and is most likely only using that as an excuse to see Chuck shirtless, three poker players are more interested in finishing their high-stakes tournament than getting to safety, three [[spoiler:damned tough bodyguards dressed like]] call girls won't go with you unless their time is paid for, Stuart is risking both his and his girlfriend's lives in order to loot the casino he works at (and you must hit him over the head with something to get him to listen - and he later tries to start a mutiny, and you call him out on his bullshit), two "kings of comedy" won't leave the store they're in until Chuck gives one of them the comedy trophy of the competition they were supposed to be in (and depending on which one of them you pick, the other might be enough of a sore loser to demand five thousand dollars to follow you), and Bill refuses to leave the casino you find him in until you reimburse him for all the money he gambled away. The further you get into the game, the dumber the survivors seem to get.

* DeadlyGame: The multiplayer mode takes the form of a game show called "Terror is Reality" based around killing zombies. The developers have compared it to ''AmericanGladiators''.
** When really it's got more in common with [[TakeshisCastle Takeshi's Castle]] [[XMeetsY crossed with]] ''Film/TheRunningMan'' [[XMeetsY meets a Gomorrah torture orgy]].

* CutsceneDrop: The first possible occurance is justified by the Chuck being kidnapped. Later on Day 4, the character is teleported across Fortune Park upon discovering or destroying the harvesters.

* DepravedBisexual: The Twins are clearly fooling around with each other and TK, and one of them even fondles Rebecca while holding her hostage.



** Oh, and those harder hitting fastmoving berserker zombies also have a vomit projectile that stuns Chuck for a couple seconds. Getting hit by it is a 99% chance of being grabbed.

* EasyLevelsHardBosses: The main threat in the game is the zombies, which are slow-moving and easy to kill. Looters and mercenaries are faster, smarter, and armed, but they still go down after a reasonable amount of damage. The bosses are absolutely superhuman though, requiring several dozen times as much damage as armored cars take and able to unleath absurdly deadly attacks.

** In a more specific example, there's [[spoiler: Sullivan. He's a a 53 year old security guard, but also has tons of health, amazing accuracy, and excellent hand to hand combat skills. Whatever, this could just be because he's a BadassGrandpa. However, what's absolutely inexcusable is his glitched uppercut attack that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzW1eVYf4OU as this video shows]] [[HPToOne brings Chuck's health bar down to half of a square.]] Just for reference, if Chuck gets shot with a .50 caliber sniper rifle by, say, one of the redneck snipers, it will only take off one block.]]

* MoralDissonance: Your main ally is a zombie-rights activist who protests against the gratuitious slaughter featured in ''Terror is Reality'' and disapproves of organizations that condone violence against the undead, and even Chuck makes it clear that he's an unwilling participant who disapproves of the game but does it because he needs the money. Bring on the "x Zombies Killed" death counter!

* SubvertedTrope: There's currently no trope for it (the closest would probably be TogetherInDeath but it only really applies to a single listed example), but most of the bosses crawl to a body of either their object of fixtation (Slappy), their loved one ([[spoiler:The Twins]]), but when the magician duo die, the silent one [[spoiler:instead stabs his partner to death, completely surprising Chuck (who was semi-lampshading it by rolling his eyes when the silent magician tries crawling to his dying partner).]]

** ''Many'' players simply cannot stand the stupidest and most callous of the survivors (such as the girl in the Arena bathroom who wants to save some worthless plant species, the fat man in the resturant in the Fortune City Arena who wont follow you unless you give his fat ass some food, the casino worker who loots a casino in the middle of a zombie apocalypse rather than being concerned with safety, or the group of poker players who won't follow you until you beat them in poker, which not only wastes a ton of time and requires all gambling magazines to have a decent chance of it but also has a ridiculously expensive buy-in and their existence makes another hard-to-find group that much harder to find due to the 8 NPC limit). So instead of rescuing them, they beat them to death with a bat, chop them up with a chainsaw, leave them to the zombies, shoot them full of holes with a Light Machine Gun, light them on fire, blow them up, smash their skulls in with a sledgehammer, chop them up with a machete, blast them to the ground with a shotgun and repeatedly fire on them if they try to get back up, crack their skulls open by repeatedly hitting golfballs into their head, throw knives at them, electrocute them, run them over with a car, pummel them with their bare hands, etc.
