* EscortMission: Certain levels in ''II'' will have Sam trying to protect a key NPC from an oncoming horde of enemies. Fortunately, he usually has backup, and said NPC is also capable of protecting himself. The fight against Kwongo is an odd example of an escort ''boss fight'', since instead of attacking the boss directly, Sam has to protect a bunch of catapults and the Simbas manning from them enemies while they attack Kwongo instead. While it isn't an instant game over if they're lost, they're the only thing that deals any actual damage to the boss, as Sam's weapons only deal pitiful scratch damage even with Serious Damage power-ups, so he's in serious trouble if they're lost and Kwongo isn't down to a sliver of health.

** ''Any and all weapons'' in ''The Last Hope'' and the VR version of ''TFE''. Yes, this includes the [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]], [[ShotgunsAreJustBetter shotgun]], [[GatlingGood minigun]], rocket launcher, and any other weapon you can think of. The cherry on top of all that? You can mix and match in ''TFE'' VR, too!


Added DiffLines:

** Nothing's stopping you from doing this in ''The Last Hope'' and VR ''TFE'' if you feel like it.


Added DiffLines:

** And then the VR version of ''TFE'' takes it up to potentially game-breaking levels by letting you go GunsAkimbo with ''any'' pair of weapons, automatically getting two of each weapon, and the reload animations are completely removed, raising the fire rate considerably for your starting revolvers and shotguns.


Added DiffLines:

*** Double Subverted with the VR version of ''TFE'', due to how much more quickly you can burn through your ammo through GunsAkimbo and substantially increased fire rates for the shotguns combined.

* PsychicPowers: Witch-Brides in the third game have powerful telekinesis, in addition to the standard psychic powers of [[PowerFloats levitation]], [[BarrierWarrior force fields]], and [[MadeOfIron enhanced durability.]] Notably, the first one you meet has a short cutscene where it picks up a piece of rubble the size of a small car and uses its telekinesis to crush it into pebbles. As soon as the gameplay begins, she tries the same thing on [[BadAss Sam]], but it only does about ten points of damage to him.

** The Gun Stacker Connectors in Double D take this to ridiculous levels, allowing you to simultaneously wield more guns than you have arms if you get enough of them.

** ''The Last Hope'' and the upcoming VirtualReality UpdatedRerelease of ''The First Encounter'' up the ante by letting the player dual-wield ''any'' gun - yes, including the [[GatlingGood miniguns]] and rocket launchers! If that wasn't enough, VR ''TFE'' also lets you dual-wield different guns in each hand, so you could hold a minigun ''and'' a rocket launcher at the same time! ''Have fun.''



** Taken UpToEleven in ''The Last Hope'', which now lets you go GunsAkimbo with those miniguns!



* TechDemoGame: One of the reasons of making of ''The First Encounter'' was to show off the capabilities of Serious Engine. ''The First'' and ''Second Encounter'' even had a tech demo level.

** ''The First Encounter'' got a second re-release specifically for VirtualReality users, most notably as a free-movement alternative to ''The Last Hope''.



* VideoGameFlameThrowersSuck: ''Very'' much averted. The flamethrower in Second Encounter deals a ton of continuous damage and passes through enemies, allowing you to easily ignite entire hordes if you get them bunched up. Very useful against a pack of Kleers.

** The melee animations on the Beheaded Rocketeers and Cloned Soldiers in ''BFE'' show Sam's SuperStrength quite clearly. If the player presses the melee button while Sam's holding the shotgun or pistol near a Cloned Soldier, [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom he kicks the armored soldier hard enough to launch him 10 meters away and through the air.]] If Sam has any other weapon out, he instead quickly [[NeckSnap grabs the soldier and snaps his neck]] in about a second, one-handed and with no mechanical leverage. If the player presses the melee button near a Rocketeer, Sam just straight-up shoves his hand through the poor bastard's chest and out his back, [[AndShowItToYou and rips out his heart.]]

In end 2014, Croteam also released a puzzle game, ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple''.

In end 2014, Croteam also released a puzzle game, ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple''.
''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple''. It is not related to the ''Serious Sam'' games beyond a similar premise of visiting ancient civilizations (albeit via simulations rather than TimeTravel with alien technology) and, with the release of the "Serious" DLC, the [[GuestFighter ability to play as Sam]].



* AdjustableCensorship: How many other M-rated games have options to have enemies bleed flowers instead of blood? We could only find [[AlienHominid one other]], [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 two]] if you're being generous. Point is, Sam was at it first.
