* HumongousMecha: One that pops out of nowhere at the end of Chapter 4. And serves no purpouse at all in the story.

* SmugSnake: Alas, Briggs himself will swing between making ridicolously dumb-looking faces and smugly grinning with superiority at will. This is evident during the climax of Chapter 3.

* {{Jerkass}}: Cap'n Briggs rather unhesitatingly mutilates people to advance the plot... and sometimes, for no real reason. Not just that, he commits ''murder'' to get an arm to make gruel. Holy Hell. Let's not forget when he claps what can best be descried as a bear trap onto a guy's head so he could steal his '''pen'''. Said pen is then used to blind a sea monster -- which, as far as we know, has done '''nothing wrong'''. Blinding the sea monster doesn't actually do anything useful, but it turns the pen into a nib, which is then used as a lockpick to remove somebody from their chains. All this to get a clue to get to the next area, which is cryptic to the point of uselessness.

Due to its absolutely massive amount of plagiarism, the game's been pulled off store shelves. It's still available in pirated form, though - while we at TV Tropes don't encourage it, you can sweep the Web and find a copy, [[BileFascination if you absolutely have to experience its legendary badness]]. Considering that most of the content was ''already'' pirated anyway, it'll probably even count as poetic justice. An alternative is to read the excellent LetsPlay from the SomethingAwful forums by LetsPlay/TheDarkId: [[http://lparchive.org/Limbo-of-the-Lost/ it does an excellent job pointing out each and every insult to your intelligence without forcing you to actually play it]]. There is also another LetsPlay by [[http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=400406 Wields-Rulebook-Heavily]] which also does a good job at covering the game. For those who would prefer a video playthrough, Vinny of WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} has livestreamed the game in its entirety; the stream is preserved [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlc94szfcNDHdHdZewnAvKeBXWYZVGdtT here]].

* AnachronismStew: Possibly justified by the otherworldly setting, but it's a tad odd how Briggs just takes it in stride.

* AssPull: During the climax of Chapter 3: Allright, the facts exposed by Briggs to reveal who the culprits are may work on some feeble, pathetic logic. However, [[spoiler: the games doesn't bother to explain how Briggs knew that he could seal away the Soul Taker with a black candle and a glass box and act so smugly about it. Notice that all he knew about the Soul Taker was the ritual to summon it by a scroll.]]



* PropRecycling: Thor's mighty hammer is used several times, at several sizes, to [[MundaneUtility solve anything imaginable]]. Namely, first is found as a hammer inside Death's own armory. Later on the same model is used for the doorknobs of the SevenDeadlySins doors.



* TalkingToHimself: Let's just say the studio didn't overspend on voice actors. This wouldn't be as much of a problem if the guy could actually, y'know, act.
