* MeaningfulName: Maybe. Mondo Zappa is Italian for "world" and "hoe." His last name is a ShoutOut to Music/FrankZappa, as Suda confirms [[http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/egm-exclusive-suda51-explains-origins-of-mondo-zappa/ here]].

** Episode 10: David augments an old locomotive with excessive amounts of dark matter, turning it sentient and angry. [[spoiler:The team FINALLY gets paid for saving the streets of Moscow from 20 tons of roaring dark-matter augmented death. And then Bryan decides to spend it all on upgrades. They don't LOOK like upgrades...]]

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than Suda 51's previous game, VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw.



* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Most of the Execution Targets that have been "gifted" with Dark Matter.

* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Most of the Execution Targets that have been "gifted" with Dark Matter. [[spoiler:Mondo too, by the end.]]



* GainaxEnding: As per Suda norm.

* GainaxEnding: As per Suda norm.Individual episodes have them (the client was actually [[spoiler:a bird!]]), and the ending cutscene of the game, although literally describable, is presented quite indirectly. [[spoiler:After killing David, Mondo cuts his arm off. Back on Earth, Mika cries. Moon River gives a new mission to the firm. Mondo is shown putting David's mansion back together with his arm back this time. The implication is that Mondo has become corrupted by darkness, which makes more or less sense, but the boss fight he has with David beforehand is bizarre as well, confounding things further.]]

* AuthorAppeal: An [[CelShading oddly shaded]] assassin using a [[NoMoreHeroes katana]] with heavy emphasis on [[WeirdMoon the moon]] as a symbol? That's Creator/{{Suda 51}}, all right.

* OsamaBinLaden: Mondo was one of the assassin's responsible for the killing of his world's Osama Bin Laden. The resulting evil energy released from killing him infected Mondo's teammates and his arm, resulting in his need to have it altered into a bionic one.

* AllThereInTheManual: Suda revealed the origins of Mondo Zappa's mechanical arm [[http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/egm-exclusive-suda51-explains-origins-of-mondo-zappa/ in an interview]], and has stated that it won't be revealed in the game proper.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroismWontPayTheBills: State-sponsored execution (read:government-approved assassination) isn't exactly a paragon of heroism, but the protagonists save a ''lot'' of bystanders. And they never get paid enough; even though you earn millions by billing the state, in this economy, $10K isn't enough to buy two packs of ''gum''.
** Episode 1: The reason why Mondo didn't get paid a fortune to save news-phenomenon Mika from a cowardly (but smart) Wire? [[spoiler:Because David did it.]]
** Episode 2: Mondo needs to kill off a former employee who has gone insane and is summoning Wires. Not much payment for executing their own.
** Episode 3: A painter wants his homicidally-insane neighbor executed. [[spoiler:He can't pay the main fees because he's ''dead'']].
** Episode 4: Mondo fails to kill the target, though it was an obvious tie. Not bad for a rookie. [[spoiler:So his client decides to stay at his place. Rawr]].
** Episode 5: Dream Episode.
** Episode 6: A talented pianist was subjected to experimentation by a corporate executive turned musician. [[spoiler:But it turns out that her best friend was the one who requested the execution, because the shock killed said pianist. And she can't pay the bills because she's ''literally a bluejay'']].
** Episode 7: Bryan decides to put his former partner out of his misery. [[spoiler:Even though the guy had manifested a fuzzy killing machine, there wasn't any real reward for killing him.]]
** Episode 8: Dream Episode.
** Episode 9: A scientist at Area 151 accidentally activates an alien artifact, mutating him into a rampaging giant baby monster. [[spoiler:The alien turns out to be the scientist who commissioned the job. He pays them, but the team can't pick up a ''miniature nuclear reactor'']].
** Episode 10: David augments an old locomotive with excessive amounts of dark matter, turning it sentient and angry. [[spoiler:The team FINALLY gets paid for saving the streets of Moscow from 20 tons of roaring dark-matter augmented death. And then Bryan decides to spend it all on upgrades. They don't LOOK like upgrades...]]
** Episode 11: Dream episode.
** Episode 12: [[spoiler:This is personal.]]
** Episode 51: A pureblooded vampire requests a hit on a halfblooded vampire who decided to get some Wire upgrades. They had a lover's spat. [[spoiler:Mondo's spat goes off better, but Betty decides to renege on the payment for shits and giggles]].
