* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: The American box art of the first game has Travis Touchdown holding his beam katana against a blank white backdrop with an aggressive look. The European and Japanese box art has Travis standing in the streets of Santa Destroy with a cocky smile on his face and an arm around Sylvia's waist. The box art for the UpdatedRerelease is like a hybrid of the two, depicting a smiling Travis standing in front of a blood red background holding his beam katana (which is [[RuleOfCool emitting lightning]]) and surrounded by women (Shinobu, Holly Summers, Bad Girl and Sylvia Christel).

** The original intent for the game had tons of gore and left the bodies of ranked fight opponents after they die. This was how the American version of the game was released. The Japanese version removed all the blood, replacing it with smoke, and removed the bodies. This was apparently intentional, as excessive violence is less acceptable in modern-day mainstream Japanese games. To the consternation of many European fans, the PAL version is taken from the Japanese cut, as Rising Star Games decided this version would appeal to a wider audience and improve sales. It had also just released after the classification controversy over ''{{Manhunt}} 2'', and Red Star may have been attempting to avoid a similar problem. They have promised the sequel will not be censored, and it wasn't. The Japanese sequel is still censored. The UsefulNotes/{{PS3}} and UsefulNotes/XBox360 remake ''No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise'' is uncensored.

Travis' shocked reactions are priceless. (Of course, whether the ESRB ever listened to a slowed-down version, and how they would have reacted to it if they didn't, is a mystery for the ages.)

Added DiffLines:

* LiteralDisarming: Used twice; first against Death Metal, the very first boss in the game, where Travis slices off both hands, causing his {{BFS}} to go flying into the ceiling. The second one is used against Shinobu, removing her right hand (and her katana), preventing her from fighting Travis any further.

* GainaxEnding: It's played for laughs, but that doesn't make it any less gainaxy. [[spoiler:Travis starts learning of his family history and real reasons for fighting right about when the fourth wall disappears for good. He goes home and gets attacked by [[VideoGame/Killer7 somebody who looks suspiciously like Garcian Smith]] while on the toilet, when Henry shows up, kills Not-Garcian and fights Travis for no real reason. After the boss battle, they run down the street talking about how they can't escape from the game, before clashing blades again. Meanwhile, Sylvia and her daughter, who is the third character in the game named Jeane, are admiring a painting of said event. Most of the plot is still vague at this point, and Sylvia taunts the player about how there won't be a sequel to clear it up, before the words "TO BE CONTINUED" appear a few screens later.]]
