* ActionFilmQuietDramaScene: Despite starting with [[WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie The Touch]] blaring out loud, the game still shows an example of this - the game ends with Lo Wang and [[spoiler:Ameonna, Hoji's sister, kneeling by Hoji's slowly vanishing corpse in silence, as the camera circles them]].

A reboot/prequel to the 1997 videogame ''VideoGame/{{Shadow Warrior|1997}}''. It follows a younger Lo Wang, an assassin at the employ of corporate mogul Orochi Zilla. Lo Wang is tasked with retrieving an ancient sword called the "Nobitsura Kage". However Lo Wang's assignment proves difficult when a demon invasion happens - the demons themselves also seeking the sword, forcing Lo Wang to team up with the banished demon Hoji (who doesn't remember WHY he was banished) to find the Nobitsura Kage before Zilla, repel the demon invasion, and find out the truth behind Hoji's banishment.

** One of the levels has a few retinal scanners which are blatantly modeled after [[ASpaceOdyssey HAL]]. They're even labeled as "Dave"!!

* IKnowYourTrueName: Lo Wang demands to know his demon companion's name because he read that knowing it will give him control over him. When he gets it, Hoji is shocked that Wang could pronounce it, stating that he must be the one the prophesies spoke of: a goddamn moron who believes everything he's told.

* BigBad: Enra is the main antagonist of the story, and is responsible for the demonic attacks that get Lo Wang involved, and is even the one behind Orochi Zilla, Lo Wang's primary employer/nemesis in the mortal realm, but the true author of the wrong that led to the game's events turns out to be [[spoiler:Hoji, who loved his sister so much that he turned against Enra and turned the Shadow Realm into a hellscape as revenge against him]].

* BossRush: Right before [[spoiler:Zilla]] in Chapter 16 Wang enters a courtyard where he faces off against two Berserkers backed with Mothers. When they die a wave of lesser demons, sword demons, and shield demons spawns. After ''them'' two Warlords, two Shamans, and a Berserker appear at the same time. And just to make it interesting the Shamans will be spawning skeletons and resurrecting all the non-boss enemies from the last two waves.

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Lo Wang was able to take down an entire army of katana-wielding yakuza at the start of the game, then take apart a couple of demons. And this was ''before'' he gained his ki powers.
* EmergencyWeapon: PlayedWith. You certainly do have a katana in case you're short on ammo, but it's a completely viable weapon on its own right, especially when all of its powers are unlocked and in conjunction with the other ki powers you gain. Still, you're given a QuickMelee button when you have a gun up, and you have shuriken as your absolutely last resort ranged attack.
