Chances are you'll be dead by tomorrow, but those of you who play the game with skill and strategy will earn a chance to win your freedom.''

* BottomlessPit: Lampshaded in an early cutscene, where Dallas refers to one as "The Pit of Endless Falling and Eventual Dying". Strangely absent for most of the game though, as it focused more on combat than platforming.
** There's also this line by one of your robot teamates later:

This includes kills with weapons (which are named in the menu), Skill Point totals (every area has 15, and you get told that there are 165 total, but [[spoiler:there are only 10 listed areas in the menu; one must be missing]]), and enemies killed (which spoils that you'll be fighting [[spoiler:robot ghosts and robot zombie ghosts]] at some point).

* StoppedNumberingSequels: In Europe, at least, since the last 2 games lost their subtitles. More noticeable in the trophy list on [=PS3=], which simply calls the second game ''Ratchet & Clank 2'' (even if you're in the US) and adds a 3 to ''Up Your Arsenal''.

* EpicFlail: The Scorpion/Leviathan Flail. Heck, one of the trophies in the PS3 release for getting a Skill Point for killing enemies with the eponymous weapon is even named "Epic-Flail".

* DeathOfAThousandCuts: The Dual Vipers are a "quantity over quality" weapon ([[LampshadeHanging the instruction manual even refers to them as this]]), and eventually they'll take hundreds of bullets to kill huge enemies. They get better in Challenge Mode, though.

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Eviscerator]] gets noticably less character establishment than the other Exterminators. Other than the implication he's VERY AxCrazy, we really don't learn much about him. He's even the only one to lack BossBanter. [[spoiler:The announcers do mention he's a great chef, though, and the official strategy guide implies there was an EloquentInMyNativeTongue theme going for him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherEpisode: ''Deadlocked'', while DarkerAndEdgier, serves as the bridge between the original and ''Future'' trilogies, and is one of the few games without an OmnicidalManiac as the BigBad. Instead, Gleeman Vox kidnaps superheroes to fight to the death in a reality show.
