** Most of the Boss' campaigning, since there's a five-year TimeSkip between the opening mission and the time they've been elected president. We get small snippets of info, such as their apparently being... "caught" with a reporter. It's also suggested they only won the election because of their team of {{Hypercompetent Sidekick}}s.

** The mission to rescue Ben King takes the player to a simulation of Stilwater as it appeared back in the first ''Saints Row''. The Boss even arrives on the very same street they were walking down in the original game in the opening cutscene where they got recruited into the Saints, meeting the same people they did there - the guy hawking watches, the hooker offering a good time, and the trio of Vice Kings spraying over another gang's graffiti, although the last three turn on the Boss rather than getting into the clusterfuck with all three other gangs from the first game.
*** The Boss also finds a bag of Freckle Bitch's food on Julius' desk while exploring the church, commenting that they're surprised one never opened in Steelport and blaming a Councilman Phillips for not having a sense of humor.



* LampshadeHanging: The illogical inconsistencies regarding the simulation and how Zinyak can't impose perfect order within it despite having complete control over it are duly noted by the Boss, which results in Kinzie requesting him/her to [[MST3KMantra "just go with it"]].

Added DiffLines:

** In a more meta example, while rescuing Ben King from his simulation, there's a lampshade hung on the fact that the Freckle Bitch's restaurant, and the ability to [[HyperactiveMetabolism heal faster by eating]], didn't come back after the second game. Apparently a humorless councilman outright banned Freckle Bitch's from opening any locations in Steelport.

** The "Super Dangerous Wad Wad Edition", which there is only one copy of and costs '''one million dollars''', comes with the Commander in Chief edition, the dubstep gun, spy training, a trip to outer space, a Lamborghini, a one year membership to the E25 Super Car Club, plastic surgery, a shopping spree, a weeks trip to the Jefferson Hotel in Washington, a hostage rescue experience, a Toyota Prius with insurance, and a week's vacation to Burj-al-arab. It's also a designers' hoax, but [[RuleOfCool who cares?]]

* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: Boss thinks Matt's Nyteblayde simulation is a Mary Sue fanfic, but Matt insists it's not.

** [[MechaMooks Murderbots]]--slow, lumbering robots that are incredibly hardy, carry heavy machine guns and bomb launchers, and could crawl towards you in an attempt to kill you if you don't blow off their heads first.

* ActionGirl: The female versions of the Boss, Asha, Shaundi, Shaundi and Kinzie. If they are female and have a name, it's likely they are one in this game. The female gang members in the simulation might count as well.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Summon any two homies and just wait. Almost every combination has a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2fsr_KKNNo unique conversation.]] Although alas, this does not work with characters acquired through the Enter The Dominatrix DLC, fun though it would have been to watch Matt Miller hang out with [=NyteBlayde=] or Josh Birk.
** Also averted, as anyone who has attempted to play through Enter the Dominatrix before a certain super power is attained ([[spoiler:telekinesis]]) has discovered. The Dev Team would have been better off setting the DLC to unlock after the applicable mission.

* AchievementMockery: There's a scene where Zinyak asks you to surrender and be executed, and promises if you do so he'll restore the Earth. Doing so will get you a NonStandardGameOver and the "You Chose... Poorly" achievement.

** Also, a number of missions require driving, so it can't completely be avoided. That said, many missions requiring you to drive a car to a specific place can instead be completed by picking up the car with SuperStrength, carrying it to your destination, and then getting back in.

-->[[spoiler:'''Boss''': ...but we need to remember why we do what we do. And today the stakes are even higher. Earth is gone. It's not coming back and nothing we do today is going to change that. But one thing we can do is get revenge. And you better believe we're showing this motherfucker humanity isn't dead because we're still alive. This isn't about hope, or faith, or even about winning. Kinzie's right, those things died on Earth. This is about will. This is about saying I don't give a shit how many times you knock me down, I'm still breathing I'm standing right back up and ya know what? You can hit as hard as you want 'cause when I hit back I'm gonna lay your ass out, bitch! [[CatchPhrase It's our time now, let's get this shit started!]]
