*** 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 the {{Rocky Horror Picture Show}}: one shirt has a very familiar pair of red, open-mouthed lips.

** 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).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* YouKillItYouBoughtIt: In this system, when an assassin kills a higher ranking assassin, he gains the slain assassin's rank. Unfortunately Travis doesn't realize the downside of that - he'll be targets for every other up-and-coming assassin - until Sylvia tells him after he kills the tenth-ranked. This convinces him that the only way out is simply to get rid of them all.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: One your way to the Rank 5 fight, a trail of blood pools leads you to a dead body (which also leads you to a path to the same fight) and everybody just goes on with their business. Possibly justified, considering what kind of environment Santa Destroy is.

* SequelSnark: The very last line is Sylvia [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the [[GainaxEnding bizarre ending of the game]] with "Too bad there won't be a sequel!" This, of course, turned out to be a lie.
