** RuleOfFunny: The number [[FreudWasRight 69]] is the ArcNumber, after all. Of course, considering the US in the VideoGame/DukeNukem universe has gone through a MadScientist trying to TakeOverTheWorld, ''two'' {{Alien Invasion}}s, and maybe even some time traveling baddies and mutant monsters, depending on whether you place the console games and ''Manhattan Project'' in Canon, it wouldn't be a stretch to think that [[InferredHolocaust various Presidents got offed during the meantime]]

* {{Badass}}: Duke, of course, but special mention goes to Crusty Old Man, the crane operator during Duke's fight with the Octoking, who not only survived the battle but also hurled a few insults during it as though it's all part of his contract.
--> ''"Whoa! There's somethin shakin' the crane! Come on out, ya bastard! I'll donkey punch ya in the blow hole!"''

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialBrilliance: Octabrains don't shoot psycho waves straight to the player's position if he is moving. They shot to wherever the player is heading, predicting his moves.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Duke is FamedInStory so ridiculously that what would normally be [[DudeNotFunny crass, rude, often misogynistic remarks in real life]] don't solicit much reaction from anyone else in the fictional world. The entire point is that Duke can do no wrong; this is Duke's world, not the real world.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: The first fight in the game is a recreation of the final boss fight from ''Duke Nukem 3D''. Needless to say, he's a lot easier here than he was back then. In ''Duke 3D'', the Cycloid Emperor had an extremely high rate of fire and his missiles could kill you in just a couple hits at 100 health and armor. Here he has a ''much'' lower rate of fire on his missiles and they do quite a bit less damage too.

* AchillesHeel: The Octobrains' propensity for telekinesis can be exploited. Throw a pipebomb at one, see it grab it with telekinesis, and blow it up in the Octobrain's face.
