* PainfullySlowProjectile: Missile launchers, some Eridian guns, and occasionally sniper rifles. All guns have a velocity stat (which you can't see), but normally it's short enough range and a fast enough bullet to not matter. Lilith also has a skill that mitigates this, by upping said velocity stat.
** Which makes a Maliwan Rhino (Elemental rocket launcher that explodes over and over until hitting its target) practically useless because it explodes fewer times before hitting its target when its velocity is increased.

** Stomper rifles trade high damage and generally good stats for lower bullet speed.



* PunchClockVillain: General Knoxx.
** In the sequel, Lilith mentions that it turns out that most members of the Crimson Lance were actually decent people who were just doing their job. She's even a little sorry about killing so many of them (although it's only a little, since they ''were'' trying to kill her and the other Vault Hunters at the time).

* PunchPackingPistol:
** 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.
** "Law" revolvers are meant to be used as this. They don't have quite the power of the regular HandCannon revolver, but they fire fast and typically reload just as quickly. A Tediore Law often isn't up to snuff as a primary weapon, but makes for a formidable sidearm.



** RareRandomDrop: the Pearlescents.
** RandomlyGeneratedLoot: The game uses a system where its equipment (guns, class mods, shields, grenade mods and, in the sequel, artifacts) is built up from randomly chosen parts which have different traits (although the player can only see this in the stats and the [[GunPorn unique model]] this produces). It also has several manufacturers, who all have their own unique gun parts and special effects.

* KickTheDog: Very little characterization is given to Krom, one of the bosses, except that he is apparently pretty bad and that he stabbed Crazy Earl twice, so in his pre-fight cutscene he shoots a tiny cowering Claptrap off of a bridge [[ForTehEvulz just to be a dick]].

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSvTqfmv3DE original version of the game]] was very much this. The final product less so, but it still has several combat mechanics abandoned by its sequals as well as remnants of its original self that separate it from the rest of the series.

* NotSoUseless: The cash box for a tour of the World's Largest Bullet deducts eight million dollars from you with no benefits other than an achievement, and it can be used multiple times. However, there is no better money dump to prevent cash overflow, a bug in the game code that triggers if you surpass 2^31 dollars (close to 2,150 billion) and '''zeroes''' your money tally if you die.
