* NightmareFuel: There's a visual throwback to Madworld within Jack's story, predictably. The context for it, however, is him about to viciously murder a mentally unstable fugitive in the name of his daughter. Just as he spouts his original motto, everything goes monochrome as his eyes glow solid red, and his chainsaw a superheated orange. In one fell swoop, they manage to make the over-the-top killing within the game ''legitimately terrifying''.

* SoOkayItsAverage: The music is amazing and some of the character designs are astounding, but combat has numerous flaws and glitches that hamper the in-game experience.

* AccidentalAesop: It's not clear if the single-player story was meant to even have an aesop, but the Black Side story seems to be trying to say that we shouldn't let emotions get in the way of our lives, and the White Side has a subtle question of whether it's better [[{{ToBeLawfulOrGood}} To Be Lawful Or Good]]. Both of these are made more explicit in the Red Side: [[spoiler: Nikolai]] let his selfishness take over his sense of justice, and was willing to follow a corrupt law instead of trying to do good.

** Add in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R53aL4MW_g Soon Enough]] in the mix
** And then there's the final boss theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEmWfkFEVLU Find You]]
** While not a {{Leitmotif}} for any specific character, Tre-Dot's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqPT26AH940 Ruthless]]'' sets the mood for the game perfectly.

* DemonicSpider: Cybrid Joes may as well be named Demonic Joes, what with their very powerful attacks, super armor on almost every attack, fiery whirlwind kicks that goes on forever and can kill you in a few hits, and being able to take just as much punishment as they can dish out. On top of that, attempting to grab them is futile. Fighting Cybrid Joes tests your skills (especially the dodging kind), your reflexes, if you remembered to take your rampage with you and your anger management. And if they show up during a multiplayer match, you won't even have the chance to take them on properly as someone will kill you as you try.
** Mercifully, in the Campaign, only five of them in total ever appear. Unfortunately, Leo has to deal with three of them at once in the White Side.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: See JustHereForGodzilla
** Barbot is also pretty popular with the fanbase, to the point that fans wishes that he were a playable character. He also have a small MemeticBadass status thanks to upgraded, Cybrid Arts-capable versions of him making appearances as a [[DemonicSpider fearsome enemy]] in a few multiplayer modes. Looking closely at their limbs reveals them as being a diffrent model.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Too early to tell, but while Anarchy Reigns has unfortunately bombed in Japan in term of sales, it sold far better in America (Despite not even having been released there yet) even though importing costs 100$ in many cases. Logically, Anarchy Reigns may very well sell well in America.
** Unfortunately, the game got a bit of a shaft by the suddenly changing of a release date, putting it right next to big releases meaning it would go largely overlooked.

* CatharsisFactor: ''Oh yeah''. Feeling in a bad mood? Perhaps go play as Big Bull and grind a load of Mooks into a fine paste. Or perhaps go and play one of Jack's free missions which involves him slaughtering everyone with an explosive rifle. There are several possibilities for catharsis in this game, as with ''Madworld'' before it.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: This game is notable for, much like ''Videogame/MadWorld'' before it, sporting some high quality hip-hop. For an example, look no further than "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIvx-fKFwVk The Days Of Old]]".

* FoeYay: Jack and Leo. A lot of it from Jack's side, oddly enough.
-->'''Jack''': What's a standup guy doing in a dump like this?

* OneSceneWonder: Some people think of Garuda like this. Him and Durga ambush Leo in the third story mission of White Side. [[spoiler: Then Sasha appears to help Leo. The mercenaries aren't match for the BPS boys and they [[KilledOffForReal get killed]] [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Quite unceremoniously, as well]].]]

* FridgeBrilliance: Nikolai regains his Killer Weapon gauge if he has the weapon active. This is due to the fact he has a reactor in his back powering his KW.
