* SlaughterhouseFight: A late Sons of Somedi mission has the player wipe out a group of Somedi guarding Mr. Sunshine at an old slaughterhouse in the factory district. Since the gang has a heavy voodoo theme and covers the walls with weird symbols and markings it really bumps up the creepy factor.

It turns out that "Playa" survived the blast that ended the first game, but has spent five years in a coma - the game begins just as he (or '''''she''''' -- you can now play a female character) wakes up. Upon busting out of prison and rescuing homie Johnny Gat from the electric chair, he/she discovers that four forces have risen to fill the void in power left by the Saints' disappearance:

Alive, pissed, [[SuddenlyVoiced a lot more talkative]], and with a thirst for vengeance against those behind the explosive attempt on his/her life, "Playa" becomes "Boss" as he/she rebuilds the Saints from the ground up and embarks on a mission to destroy the other gangs, and eventually become the kingpin of the city.

** One of the Insurance Fraud missions is from a doctor who says the Boss came recommended by Dr. Gonzalez, who gave an Insurance Fraud mission in the first game. It tuns out that Gonzalez was arrested and thrown in prison for said insurance fraud, prompting the Boss to ask the new guy why the hell he wants to try the same thing.

* CutsceneIncompetence: The BossFight against Kazuo Akuji ends with a FinishingMove of the Boss stabbing him through the heart...then immediately cuts to Akuji gaining the upper hand, effortlessly disarming the Boss, and mocking him/her for thinking he/she could beat him in a sword fight.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The plot of the original game has the player very much as "just another gangster" although trusted with more difficult tasks, working with the leader Julius to make the Saints the sole gang in the city, somehow making things safer. However, the sequel makes the hero the leader of the bunch and his/her actions disturbed some players. [[spoiler:The tit-for-tat violence with Maero resulting in Carlos' death, and the player's retaliation (locking Maero's girlfriend Jessica in the trunk of her own car, then bringing said car to a monster truck derby, where Maero unknowingly crushes it).]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Through process of elimination about it's broadcast range, you can discover that "99.0 The Underground" really is being broadcast from a signal tower in the game world. To be precise, it is on the hill overlooking Stilwater University.

*** The revenge gets even more disproportional the sooner the player starts the Brotherhood questline. If you start the Brotherhood missions first, your gang contains three rookie lieutenants, 20 mooks and controls NO territory. That means that Maero is offering a solid part of the city to a gang whch has NOTHING more than memories of past glory, just to avoid trouble.

** Despite being abrasive to the youngest member of the Saints, Carlos, the Boss is clearly upset and heartbroken when tries to rescue Carlos but is too late as the injuries Carlos sustained from being dragged around by a truck where fatal. Knowing that Carlos was beyond saving and seeing that he was suffering an incredible ammount of pain, the Boss takes his hand and then somberly [[MercyKill shoots him in the head to end it]]. As all of this happened, it [[GrayRainOfDepression started to rain]].

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: During a brotherhood mission, prisoners are seen being loaded onto a prison bus during a news report. One of them stops to mug for the camera...and gets a rifle but to the gut. Then he does it again...and gets it [[GroinAttack in the nuts]] the second time.

Both of her questions are met with a non sequitur.

* PetTheDog: Despite being a sociopath for most of the game, several scenes reveal that the Boss has a softer side. Most notably, [[spoiler: his/her reaction to having to mercy-kill Carlos]]. And in the first mission of the "Ultor Exposed" DLC, the Boss is horrified by [[spoiler: the mutilated corpses of people who have been experimented on by Ultor]].

** The newspaper articles you collect at the end of every mission emphasize the civilian casualties (which are usually the Boss's fault, since he/she starts most of the fights). There are also frequent references in bystander dialogue to particularly heinous actions taken by the Boss, such as [[spoiler:burning down the Shivington projects]] in one of the Sons of Samedi missions and [[spoiler:burying Shogo Akuji alive]].
