* GenreSavvy:
** Loren captures Boss, Gat and Shaundi and offers them membership in the Syndicate. They turn him down. He ''immediately'' tells his men to kill them. What's more, he doesn't stop even after the Saints jump out of the airplane they were in. As a matter of fact, he [[spoiler:''[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy kills]]'' Johnny Gat]] and uses this information to enrage the Saints, possibly to get at their emotions and make them slip up. It works, ''especially'' with Shaundi.
** Matt Miller is noticeably afraid of the Saints, and is well aware of what they're capable of, to the point where [[spoiler: he wisely considers just paying the Saints off and fleeing]].
** The Saints as well, they often {{Lampshade}} and [[DiscussedTrope Discuss]] tropes such as help arriving after two waves of SWAT teams and mentioning how they think Loren wouldn't be so cliché as to hide on the top floor of the tallest building of the city "like a criminal mastermind".

The game received positive reviews from critics, while gamers were more mixed. Some noted that the game either became too easy after a certain point or that the second game is better for various reasons. It also received multiple DownloadableContent packs on and after its release. In late 2012, a year after the game came out, all of this content was bundled together in ''[[GameOfTheYearEdition The Full Package]]'' version of the game, minus two unpopular DiscOneNuke DLC items. The base game (no DLC included) was given away for free to PlayStation Plus subscribers during July 3 - September 25 2013, and to Xbox Live Gold members during May 16 - 31, 2014.

*** The above may only apply to certain versions of the game. The PS3 version does not stockpile money - if it's set to collect $43,000 per hour, that's how much will be waiting to be collected, even if you don't pick it up for hours. You still never collect more than $50,000 at one time.

** Considering the fact that Oleg is a [[TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]ing great GeniusBruiser it's probably no accident he calls one of his failed clones an "Abomination."
*** Once he joins the Saints, Oleg dons a [[ManInWhite white suit and purple turtleneck]], which just happen to be the signature attire of [[MarvelUniverse The Kingpin]].

** Female Gimps look exactly like the Mistress unit from Dungeon Keeper 2.
** A dark one where if Boss uses the first female voice she'll say the first luchadore she kills (by remote controlling his car, going on a rampage then killing himself) will look like a roid rage attack, ala ChrisBenoit.

* TheDreaded: In the bad ending, it's implied that the remaining Saints stick with the Boss mostly because they can't ever afford to piss off that guy.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: The original canonical ending is infinitely darker than everything else that has happened or would happen in the Saints' universe, save for maybe Carlos' MercyKill and Zinyak's destruction of the Earth. The Boss knowingly and willfully let two loyal Saints die, all other remaining Saints stick with him simply because they fear [[TheDreaded him]] more than anyone else, a member of the U.S. government successfully stages a FalseFlagOperation which leads the government to try to outright bomb its own city to oblivion, and at the end, the Saints takes over the government of Steelport through sheer force of fear and becomes a full-fledged insurgent separatist [[DividedStatesOfAmerica force]]. Just what kind of response do they think that would [[CivilWar incite]]?

** Upgrading the baseball bat turns it into Charlie's Rat Stick from ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'', complete with "NO RATS" written on it to make the reference perfectly clear.
** The neighborhood with the nuclear plant is [[TheSimpsons Burns Hill]], of course.

** Among many other activities, gaining full control of the city requires to clear Gang Operations[[note]]static groups of Syndicate mooks. Once vanquished, each Gang Operation gives control on a small territory of the district[[/note]]. While Downtown has easier activities and cheaper properties than the other parts of the town, it also has the most difficult Gang Operation of the game. Said Gang Operation isn't harder to clear than the other ones, but is very tricky to ''find''. It is the only Gang Operation not located on the ground, thus needing an helicopter to be reached, but that's not the hardest part. Did you looked for it by scouting the only Downtown area you don't control yet? That's useless, because... ''the Gang Operation is actually located outside of the territory you gain after clearing it''.
