* {{Acrofatic}}: The Boss, if you're so inclined to make them overweight, stays no [[SuperSpeed slower]] than they were before. It comes to a head in ''Enter The Dominatrix'' when the boss has to dress up in a tacky costume and dance on a stripper-pole to Robert Palmer's "Simply Irresistible", much to Matt's dismay.

** During the assassination missions, you will be required to kill old default versions of the Player/Boss from the first three ''Saints Row'' games, and your player character will pretty much refer to them as that. There are even multiple defaults for all the different races that somehow all count as the Boss's past self. Furthermore, the wall is demolished when you have to fight two at once and Kinzie screams "It's the co-op player!"

Five years after ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'', the Boss has been elected leader of the number one gang in the world: [[{{Eagleland}} America]]. Unfortunately, this is followed by an AlienInvasion. Captured and trapped in a bizzaro LotusEaterMachine world, the Saints must escape their virtual prison and save the human race, [[UpToEleven in the most insane ways possible]].

The game's first trailer can be seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iv9K0y8vEGE here]]. The second one [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzKr5zyzplE here.]] The third one [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQTt6bUZrSU is here]]. The fourth one [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBZKWLK4O5Y here]]. A demo was released in August 2013 in the form of The Inauguration Station, which is the character creation function for the game. Players may design their Boss and import their ''Saints Row: The Third'' characters via it, or just upload characters for when the full game comes out.

** The 50's-era simulation starts off with the simulated Shaundi giving few namedrops of previous characters, with appropriate references to what happened to them. "Mr. King" (i.e. Benjamin King) is stated to be going out of town for a few weeks, referencing the fact that the character never showed up again after leaving Stilwater in the first game. Dex is also mentioned as having stopped by, but the simulated Shaundi didn't recognize him, since the real people never met.

* CoolButInefficient: The vehicle system has been greatly expanded, adding several new and unique vehicles including tri-wheel motorcycles, retro 50s trucks and sedans, and freakin' monster trucks. You also don't have to lug cars to a specific spot to save them, you just get in and hit the reload button and its yours forever. A great expansion all around... made almost entirely pointless the moment you gain the Super Sprint power, which without upgrade lets you run faster than any car without risk of crashing or other bodily harm. Once you fully upgrade your speed you can outrun any vehicle at all, even jets, and with the addition of Super Jump, Super Glide and Wall Sprint, helicopters become the ''least'' convenient option for ascending tall buildings. Even travelling long distances cross-town becomes trivial once more gateway/portal locations are unlocked.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Nuclear Missles capable of reaching the US from the middle east would have a flight time of about half an hour, and the warhead detaches from the rocket somewhere around the highest point in the trajectory, rather then continuously burning until impact. At the point the Boss sabotaged the missile in the beginning, it would have still been somewhere over Central Asia, not the White House. Justified by RuleOfCool
