* GuideDangIt: [=SBCG4AP=] has its moments, especially when it comes to finding collectibles and other 100% completion achievements. The worst one is probably one of the Expressions of Affection in "Baddest of the Bands": To get it, you have to have hints turned up to maximum, sabotage two specific bands in the Battle Royale of the Bands, pick up an item used to sabotage the ''third'' band ''without'' using it, and then wander around a particular spot for a while until the hint drops. How the game makers expected anybody to figure this one out on their own is a real mystery.
** It doesn't help some of the Expressions are LostForever if you don't do them before certain story beats.

* LostForever: Getting collectibles and other 100% completion achievements in [=SBCG4AP=] can be difficult, because many of them can only be achieved in a small window of opportunity. Thankfully, the game averts {{Unwinnable}}, as anything needed to complete the game will always remain accessible to you.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: A rather ironic InUniverse example occurs in ''8-Bit is Enough'' with "Gel-arshie's Pro Fruit-Boarder".

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: A rather ironic InUniverse example occurs in ''8-Bit is Enough'' with "Gel-arshie's Pro Fruit-Boarder". Doubles as HypocriticalHumor, since Strong Bad was seen playing a licensed game ("Limozeen's Hot Babelien Odyssey") in ''Baddest of the Bands''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: In-universe, "Dangeresque 3" was hit by this in a few parts, like [[CrazyHomelessPeople Senor Cardgage]] getting up and walking away [[FunnyBackgroundEvent in the background]] when his character is supposed to be dead, and The Cheat forgetting to edit in a CGI monster over Strong Sad.



* ThrowItIn: In-universe. Marzipan insists on having her potted plant Credenza onscreen in "Dangeresque 3", over Strong Bad's objections. He does end up finding a use for it later, though. The movie also includes some very obvious errors that should have been edited out but weren't, though this is more likely because of [[TheyJustDidntCare laziness]] or incompetence on the part of The Cheat, who was in charge of editing and post-production. On top of it all, the errors can be ''collected'' for HundredPercentCompletion.

* SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong: Strong Bad ends up turning Homestar Runner into a publicly humiliated criminal fugitive without a girlfriend in "Homestar Ruiner," but this results in Homestar moving in with Strong Bad until he gets his life back together. This forces Strong Bad to go out and resolve the "publicly humiliated," "criminal fugitive," and "without a girlfriend" parts in order to get Homestar out of his house.
