** The default taunt belongs to Wrestling/JohnCena, there's one for [[Wrestling/RicFlair Slick Ric]], you might spot Melina's splits, and numerous other wrestling style poses, outfits and taunts. [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Something to do with one]] [[RobVanDam of the actors in the game perhaps?]]

** This is inverted during the Trafficking activities (with Pierce or Zimos driving you around) and [[spoiler:when Angel drives you to the airport if you decide to stop Killbane from fleeing Steelport]]. These lines can also be heard during co-op play from the player character in the passenger seat.

* UnconventionalVehicleChase: [[PlayerCharacter The Boss]] rescues Zimos from [[MadeASlave sex slavery in an S&M dungeon]] and the two of them escape in a rickshaw pulled by Zimos in full bondage gear, chased by enforcers ''also'' driving rickshaws pulled by bondage-clad submissives, styled to look like a Roman ChariotRace. As if this all weren't weird enough, the rickshaws also ''[[MadeOfExplodium explode]]'' when they crash.[[note]]According to WordOfGod, when the sequence was first created, the programmers simply designed a rickshaw skin to overlay on the physics used by the game's [[EveryCarIsAPinto cars]] and didn't bother to disable the "explodes on crash" flag during testing. When they later disabled the flag, a very vocal faction [[ThrowItIn missed the explosions and wanted them restored]] [[RuleOfCool and damn the logic]], and finally got their way mere days before the code was finalized.[[/note]]

* 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.
