* EnsembleDarkhorse: Steve, a bandit from the trailers whose only real characteristic is yelling out "Heyyoooo!", whose popularity caused him to appear in the Zombie Island DLC and in the trailer for the Underground Riot DLC. He's even in the Secret Armory DLC as "Mini-Steve". He even appears in the sequel during a quest as an ally of the Zaford clan saying his iconic line.
* EpilepticTrees: [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/genmessage.php?board=942810&topic=52086343 Someone actually attempts to explain how New Game Plus fits into the story.]] Yes, you read that right. Someone believes the game is infinitely looping!



--> Can't shoot enough bullets from your favorite gun? S&S has the solution: '''More Boolets!'''
--> '''Four!Hundred!Percent!More!AWESOME!''' Also, Torgue doesn't make their guns out of freakin' ''wood''.

** Defilers from the ''Zombie Island'' DLC. Not only are their attacks hard to avoid, but their spread spew attack greatly slows your character and almost completely obscures your screen, making you a sitting duck for the horde of zombies that always accompany the defiler.

* HellIsThatNoise: As time goes on, you'll learn the weapons have different firing sounds according to their part combinations. You have this trope in full effect whenever you hear an enemy using what you recognize is a high-powered gun, even moreso if its fire rate is high. In the [[GladiatorSubquest Underdome matches]], it borders on NightmareFuel.

Added DiffLines:

** The canned ads that play whenever you access any vending machine, but especially Marcus'. There's only a small handful of lines they spout, so those repeat over and over and over again, and you've no choice but to use the machines as there's no other way of selling off your VendorTrash. It gets really old ''really'' fast; like, within the first hour of gameplay.

*** There are a LOT of farmable red chests around Pandora. Behind Lucky's station in the Dahl Headlands is a red and two silver chests as well as one on top of Lucky's, and the enemies guarding them won't respawn as long as you don't leave the Headlands. In Rust Commons West, there are actually three easy-to-get red chests, one near the bridge, which is only guarded by a single {{badass}} bandit. Two more are at a large spiderants spawnpoint in the northwest, but the spiderants can easily be run down with the rider. Another two are in the salt flats, guarded by just two Lancers, and can be reached within 30 seconds from the New-U-Station. Hell, there's some lying around in Fyrestone, just keep quitting and loading to farm some cash.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyWeapon: Launchers. Their firepower is ridiculously underwhelming, like you're shooting off fireworks instead of ammo meant to kill things. It doesn't help that they're ''extremely'' slow to both fire and reload, and their mag capacity is laughable. Only one kind is NotCompletelyUseless: Helix launchers, that fire three rockets in a spiral pattern for the cost of one, are a ''death sentence'' against vehicles. Otherwise, you're far better off using so much as a [[VendorTrash white-titled ]] {{revolver|sAreJustBetter}}, even if you don't go crit-hunting.

** When it was announced that ''Borderlands 2'' and ''The Pre Sequel,'' but not this game, were announced to be getting an UpdatedRerelease, fans of this game were questioning the lack of it. Randy Pitchford's response was, essentially, that it would only happen if the collection sold well on PS4/Xbox One. Fans of this game were enraged that they're essentially being blackmailed for the possibility of this game getting a re-release.

* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: No matter what you are up to, the Claptraps will keep bugging you about new missions that are available. It even gets to the point where they will repeat it AGAIN after you move to another region! The only way to shut them up is to go to whoever is offering the mission and accept it.

* ThatOneBoss: Crawmerax the Invincible, which players only attempt to kill because he drops [[InfinityPlusOneSword pearlescent weapons]]. The developers even lampshade how hard it is by calling the mission to kill him "You. Will. Die."
