** The Rudolph glitch. Sometimes Santa's top reindeer won't show up due to a bug, and you're required to kill him to get a special helmet in order to progress. If you kill all of the lesser reindeer in the area when Rudolph is missing and save, Rudolph will ''never'' show up again, and the game becomes unwinnable. However, if you allow yourself to die while at least one lesser reindeer is alive, Rudolph will come back when you do. If you're playing the PC or PS3 version, Hothead can fix your save file if it happens. If you're on 360, you're boned. What makes this glitch especially bad is that this takes place 95% of the way through the game.

** ChekovsGun: It turns out that the artifact was actually a power source / crafting ingredient that could be used to forge a legendary piece of armor... but since they already created six pairs of armor and needed millions of similar artifacts to make one, it was useful but pretty much vendor trash on its own. In The Baconing, you find caches of artifacts that are being used as power sources and sacrifice them to undo the curse planted on five of the armors (Deathspank was stupid enough to wear all six pairs at once).

** Possibly a play on how players tend to name their characters something along the lines of [[PennyArcade SkullAssassin]] in games.

* DemonicSpider: Just about any enemy with a level even remotely close to yours can really tear chunks out of your lifebar. Enemies that have orange or red level numbers (which indicate their threat to you) can kill you in one or two hits. And they often come in large packs.



* HeyItsThatVoice: Looks like [[{{Gundam00}} Sergei Smirnov]] found his true calling as a Dispenser of Justice!

** The Sequel "The Baconing" picks up on that tradition. The game has a high chance on crashing at the penultimate boss fight and corrupting your savegame. No Fix is known for that. Yeah, it looks like Hothead Games really hates their customers.
