* SpiritualAntithesis: To ''VideoGame/{{killer7}}''. k7 deals with political issues, NMH deals with social ones. k7 focuses on a group of professional assassins, NMH focuses on a singular youth who stumbled into the business. In k7 you can only walk on very specific paths, while in NMH you can wander around the entire city. The list goes on...

** There are lots of references to previous Grasshopper works, too. The fridge in the Rank 2 boss fight in the first game says "Chiller7," a reference to Killer7.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Henry, Jeane, Sylvia, and eventually Travis. Basically, everyone who [[BreakingTheFourthWall breaks the fourth wall]] at the ending(s). Travis does need to get (nearly) shot in the back, electrocuted via handshake, step on a few landmines, and fall in a pit before the savvyness sets in, though. Others include [[spoiler:Ermen Palmer in the ending, seeing as he almost managed to kill Travis in the place where he saves the game!]]

*** Travis' many shirts are ripe with references, referencing everything from previous Grasshopper works (there are several {{Flower Sun and Rain}} and {{The Silver Case}} designs) to existing magazines and publications to ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'': one shirt has a very familiar pair of red, open-mouthed lips.

* TheMentor: Thunder Ryu, to a tee. Except for the implications about sex with Travis. But the fact that he still instructs Travis as [[spoiler: a blue-tinted ghost after his death really seals the deal.]]

** The original intent for the game had tons of gore and left the bodies of ranked fight opponents after they die. This was how the American version of the game was released. The Japanese version removed all the blood, replacing it with smoke, and removed the bodies. This was apparently intentional, as excessive violence is less acceptable in mainstream Japanese games. To the consternation of many European fans, the PAL version is taken from the Japanese cut, as Red Star games decided this version would appeal to a wider audience and improve sales. It had also just released after the classification controversy over ''{{Manhunt}} 2'', and Red Star may have been attempting to avoid a similar problem. They have promised the sequel will not be censored, and it wasn't. The Japanese sequel is still censored. The PS3 and XBox360 remake ''No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise'' is uncensored.

It was given a remake (''No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition/Heroes' Paradise'') for the {{Xbox 360}} and {{Playstation 3}}, based on the belief that its poor sales were due to the Wii being unreceptive to this kind of game. This belief got a dose of reality when the game opened only a little better than the first game (on both systems), and sales legs dropped off even more quickly. Nevertheless, the game is an incremental step up from the original, featuring oodles of bonus content (including {{Bonus Boss}}es from ''No More Heroes 2'') and gameplay tweaks (like allowing you to "stock" your special moves, which addressed the primary criticism of the original's semi-randomized SuperMode feature).

* RatedMForManly: When your game is about an average guy buying a ''katana lightsaber'' from the internet to become a top assassin, not to mention the excessive blood, fanservice, and adult themes, you kind of have to expect this.

* AlreadyDoneForYou: The game begins with Travis going after Heavy Metal, the 10th ranked assassin. Originally, Travis was going to fight the 11th rank, Helter Skelter, first. Instead, the fight was cut, moved to the opening cutscene, and Travis starts out as the 11th rank.
