** The opening narration not only can be seen as an in-universe description on the Saints' legacy but also a description of the direction of the series in general- it goes over the Saints being accused of [[VideoGame/SaintsRow1 being pretenders to the throne when introduced in 2006]], later accused of [[VideoGame/SaintsRow2 being sociopathic killers hellbent on destruction]], and the [[VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird redirection of more fun and less mercy killings]].

* LighterAndSofter: The series' shift in tone from the earlier games is acknowledged by the opening narration as the Saints stepping away from their gang roots to have, "more fun, [and] less mercy killing[s]," which in turn revitalized them as pop culture icons. Make no mistake though, the Saints still kill '''a lot''' of people. Not to mention the whole [[spoiler: Earth getting blown to bits thing.]]

-->[[spoiler:'''Boss''': ...but we need to remember why we do what we do. And today * VillainousBreakdown: The ''simulation'' has this. At the stakes start of the game, there are even higher. Earth signs all over Steelport which say things like "Zin is gone. It's not coming back Law Above All", "This Is Your New Home" and nothing we do today is going to "All Hail Zinyak". As you progress through the game, these signs change that. But one thing we can do is get revenge.

---> '''Kinzie''': You're asking Matt and I to [[spoiler: paint a target on humanity's last chance]] so YOU can [[spoiler: go and rescue someone we've never even met!]] And what's stupider is that we're going along with it! [[spoiler: That guy you just beat the shit out of is risking everything to save your friend.]] And you wanna know why? Because [[spoiler: we can't save ours anymore! Oleg is dead! Viola is dead! EARTH... is dead!]] So how about you stop being a fucking asshole and [[spoiler: say 'thank you' for giving us the hope he'll never have.]]

Spelling and formatting.
*** You can also experince problems in co-op if you or a friend have a less-than-ideal rig or connection. Cars driven by the NPC's or another player will appear well off course to the other player (making missions like NyteFell impossible to do together), missions with The Ship will have them flying outside the boundaries to the guest player, and you may find yourself landing on the blast door with your head in the last mission if it closes for you before it does your friend.

* TextAdventure: Taking a [[JustForPun page]] from the popular example of the third game, you have to go through one to get to Matt. There are bonus ones where Zinyak and Future!Shaundi explain how they came to power and destroyed Christmas respectively, with the former snarking and mocking while the latter takes the silliness in her stride and shows incredible patience. [[NotSoAboveItAll Mostly.]] -->Ha! No, Pierce did not snap and turn against the Saints, but that would so totally be Pierce wouldn't it?

Darker And Edgier refers to a specific type of Tone Shift, not a city that happens to be kinda dark.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Well, darker anyway; the Steelport simulation is ([[spoiler: at least at first]]) usually permanently set to nighttime (at least, after the 1950s bit).

** The Boss is utterly unable to defend himself when he gets a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown from two Zinyak's soldiers, who catches him by surprise when he tries to reason with Keith. This is, indeed, how fights in real-life look like: The guy who takes hit first always loses.
