* CombatPragmatist: Plenty of gang members (including bosses) will use whatever's available to pummel you. Kick boxes and cans into you? Throw you into a pit? Kick you while you're down? All things the computer can do - to be fair, [[TheJoyOfTorturingMooks those options are available to you, too]].

** Every item (other than books that teach you new techniques) raises your stats. Yes, this includes [=CDs=], books, toys...You can only use them once. The game doesn't specify that your characters are eating them, but considering the above points, you can't put it past them.

** Rex, who doesn't really care about why everyone is fighting. He just wants to fight too.



*EveryoneHasStandards: Fulfill the requirement to encounter Rex with bad reputation. Rather than ask to join, he will challenge you to a fight because he deems you too crazy. This is the guy who wanted to fight regardless of who was good or bad.



* GuideDangIt: If you didn't know what Reputation is in the remake and how to raise it, you wouldn't know you can actually recruit people. Even the recruit with the clearest requirements (Ivan) will refuse to join if your karma is low, even after clearing the Abby sidequest. Some are clear ViolationOfCommonSense; to have Ted even appear,[[spoiler: you'd have to fullfill the requirements to recruit Tex, ''turn him down'', then return and clear the street he was again]]. To recruit Jesse [[spoiler: beat up his friend Turk four times with ''bad'' reputation, then beat them both with ''good'' reputation.]]. And then there's the Tidus sidequest...

Added DiffLines:

* PaletteSwap[=/=]OnlySixFaces[=/=]CastOfSnowflakes: Simultaneously! The first is the most promiment, as all the guys have the same basic body, differentiated only by the color of their shirts. Secondly, all the gangs share the same nine faces; fight all nine members of a gang and you'll always see a Glasses Guy, a Sunglasses Guy, a Big Forehead Guy, a Scruffy Haired Guy, etc. in each of the gangs. Finally, all of the boss characters have unique faces that sometimes resemble but are notably different from the nine generic gang faces.

Added DiffLines:

* PipePain: In the original, steel pipes were the strongest melee weapon available, only found in the hands of the Cowboys and the Plague, the two toughest gangs in the original.


Added DiffLines:

* RapidFireFisticuffs: Stone Hands gives you the power to rapidly throw three punches in the time it used to take you to throw one, while Dragon Feet does the same thing for kicks. Based on how affordable these two are, plus their availability at every mall, they're frequently the cornerstone of a player's offense. Much more expensive, but more deadly, is Grand Slam, which allows Alex and Ryan to do the same with any equipped weapon.
