* HeroicComedicSociopath: Johnny Gat. When ''gangsters'' call you a gun-toting maniac, you may have to calm down a little. The man's favorite pastime is violence. Preferably against police. His solution to ''any'' problem is to walk in the front door and start killing people... and somehow, he comes off as a complete and total {{badass}} instead of a bloodthirsty psychotic. Your main character also fits this trope to a T, for the first game at least. In ''Saints Row 2'', you drop the "heroic" bit and eventually this becomes your hat again in ''The Third''.

Added DiffLines:

* FastFoodNation: The series does this in the first two games with any food the player purchases coming from fast food places. The food system is done away with in the third game and doesn't return for the fourth, so this doesn't continue.

* EvilisCool: The back of the original Saints Row case says "Saints Row - Sinners Welcome". That should tell you all you need to know about this series, even though ''Saints Row 2'' has a couple "YouBastard" scenes, culminating when [[spoiler:the player kills Julius, who calls out the player on their new evil murdering ways.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PhoneWord: The first two games allow you to dial various phone numbers on your cell phone. Most of them follow this trope. For example, the number for Haz Mat is 555-6677 or 555-OOPS.

** Anything associated with Professor Genki in the third and fourth games is pink.



* CoolOldGuy: Zimos, the oldest pimp in Steelport; he even has Auto-Tuned voice.

to:

* CoolOldGuy: Zimos, the oldest pimp in Steelport; he even has Auto-Tuned voice. Benjamin King in the fourth game, who's noticeably older than the rest of the cast.



* CulturedBadass: Oleg in the third game, Pierce in the third and fourth, and especially Zinyak in the fourth are all fond of classic literature and poetry. One of the Boss's voices alludes to this in the third game and it graduates to a running gag in the fourth.



** In ''Saints Row 4'':
*** TheLeader: The Boss
*** TheLancer: Keith David, Benjamin King
*** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: Kinzie, Matt Miller (after a short stint as TheSixthRanger)
*** TheBigGuy: Shaundi, [[spoiler:Johnny Gat]]
*** TheChick: Pierce
*** SixthRanger: CID, Asha
*** TheNarrator: [[spoiler:Jane Austen]]



* HammerspacePoliceForce

to:

* HammerspacePoliceForceHammerspacePoliceForce: Justified in the fourth game by the computer simulation simply creating additional cops. No such excuse in the rest of the series.
* HeelFaceTurn: A few, most prominently Matt Miller going from a major Syndicate leader in the third game to joining the Saints in the fourth. Likewise Benjamin King who similarly joins the Saints in the fourth and being the Boss's Chief of Staff when they're elected President.



* LighterAndSofter: After the second game, the series steadily progresses in this direction but ''How The Saints Save Christmas'' in the fourth game is a completely heroic story about the Saints saving Santa Claus and the Christmas spirit, and learning the true meaning of the holiday season.



* NostalgiaLevel: Recruiting Benjamin King in the fourth game revisits the opening scene of the very first game and spends time revisiting characters and setting elements from the original. Shaundi's recruitment revisits parts of the second and third games.



* OptionalTrafficLaws: It's hard to actually follow traffic laws when you're listening to Wolfmother.

to:

* OptionalTrafficLaws: It's hard to actually follow traffic laws when you're listening to Wolfmother. Moreover, every game in the series gives bonus points for power sliding, near misses, and driving in the wrong lane.

* RegeneratingHealth: Averted in ''IV'' as A constant of the player now series, though the fourth game also has to collect enemies drop health pick-ups.pickups in addition to the Boss regenerating health.
