* CelShading: The game is often mistaken as using it, but the lighting and shading are realistic, not cel.

* GunPorn: According to TheOtherWiki entry for Borderlands, the debug menu for the game shows over three million guns (varying in stats) are available in the game. According to the devs, they stopped counting once they hit ''17 million''.

* FollowTheLeader: The developers have cited many influences to the game, even saying at one point this game stemmed from wanting to make "VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}, but with co-op". Of course, in the end, there were many differences from that basic statement. It's more [[XMeetsY Fallout 3 meets... a lot of stuff.]]

''Borderlands'' is a SpaceWestern HeroShooter with RPGElements (Or an ActionRPG with [=FPS=] elements) for UsefulNotes/{{Xbox 360}}, UsefulNotes/PlayStation3, [[UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows Windows]], and [[UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh OS X]] developed by Creator/GearboxSoftware, creators of the ''VideoGame/BrothersInArms'' series and the three expansion packs for the original ''VideoGame/HalfLife''.

The game concerns [[AnAdventurerIsYou four different adventurers]] who arrive on the desert planet of Pandora in search of an alien vault said to contain vast stores of untold wealth, power and alien technology. The only problem is no one seems to know where this Vault is Pandora is a backwater world where no one wants to live, filled with mutated monsters and violent convicts left over from a MegaCorp's previous mining operations. Luckily, a [[VoiceWithAnInternetConnection "Guardian Angel"]] appears to [[AnAdventurerIsYou whichever character you picked]], claiming the Vault is real, and that [[CallToAdventure she will help you to find it]].

The game also uses an extremely complex loot system: using a procedural generation program, every weapon, shield and class accessory you get is [[GunPorn randomized]], allowing for about EleventyZillion different combinations.

Further, the game has four [[DownloadableContent DLC]] packs developed in the year following the original game's release, consisting of:

* ''The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned'': Dr. Ned, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial who is totally not his twin brother Dr. Zed wearing a fake moustache over top of a surgical mask]], managed to unleash a ZombieApocalypse upon Jakob's Cove.

There was some consideration to re-release this game for UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 and UsefulNotes/XboxOne after the release of ''Borderlands: The Handsome Collection'' (a remastered re-release compilation of ''Borderlands 2'' and ''Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!'' with all their DLC) on those platforms. While that never happened, the Xbox 360 version was made backwards-compatible for Xbox One. Installing any version of the game on the platform automatically gives players the ''[[GameOfTheYearEdition Game of the Year]]'' edition containing all DLC. However, this is only on Xbox One; unless you've previously bought all the DLC or the original ''Game of the Year'' release for 360, this method does not provide you the DLC on the Xbox 360 itself. In other words, you want free DLC from buying that pre-owned original disc at [=GameStop=]? You better have an Xbox One to play it on.

* NoPlotNoProblem

to:

* NoPlotNoProblemNoPlotNoProblem: The game certainly took a minimalist approach to storytelling. Most quests are told entirely through text descriptions when you accept them and turn them in, with story quests getting the occasional chunk of spoken dialog. What little plot there is can hardly be called complex. Still, the developers clearly did something right, because the game was popular enough to get four [=DLCs=] and multiple sequels, all of which integrated more plot into them.

** A repeater pistol can spawn with surprisingly high damage per bullet, even without getting the damage-boosting "Raptor" prefix. The legendary Firehawk pistol is one example.

The legendary Firehawk pistol is one example.hell of an example, pun intended. Its elemental multiplier is not the x4 the weapon card says - it's ''x6''. And it's ''always'' guaranteed to proc, so firing repeated shots without as much elemental tech behind them is still a valid tactic that'll roast the target, whatever it may be.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hitscan}}: [[AvertedTrope Nope]]. Every single weapon has a (usually) hidden projectile speed statistic that largely depends on the weapon type. Some - sniper rifle bullets for instance - travel so fast that it hardly matters. Others move so incredibly slowly that you're forced to LeadTheTarget even at nearly point-blank range if you want to hit anything. Most guns lie somewhere in between. It's such a pronounced gameplay feature that there actually are character skills aimed at increasing bullet speed.

Added DiffLines:

* WelcomeToCorneria: Everything and everyone that can talk has an extremely limited number of lines to tell, be it the protagonists, enemies or vending machines. While listening to the player characters' combat boasts usually remains entertaining for quite some time, having to listen to Marcus' cheap sales pitches ''every single time you access his machines'' might give rise to an irresistable urge to smash your controller into your speakers.

Added DiffLines:

* LawOfInverseRecoil: Comically averted with the Midget Shotgunners - every time they fire their oversized gun, there's a good chance the recoil will throw them on their ass, leaving them helpless for several seconds until they've scrambled back on their feet.
