** Arguably played with with the Warrior. Despite the incredible build up to a fight with the Warrior, if you have a fast-firing weapon that does enough damage, (preferably a powerful Jakobs assault rifle, as the Gatling Gun and Cannon variants are especially good) you can make the Warrior submerge into the lava with enough damage, before he can even attack once, especially on Solo. This makes a normally incredibly difficult and climactic fight pathetically easy to the point where the Crystalisks are arguably more difficult than the Warrior itself. This is true even on True Vault Hunter Mode and the even harder Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.

Or camping out with a decent SniperRifle and [[AttackItsWeakPoint snipe its glowing chest plates]] from a far enough distance.

This is true even on True Vault Hunter Mode and the even harder Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode.

** There's also the Skeleton Seers. Notable not only for their powerful electricity-throwing spells, but also their [[TeleportSpam utter refusal to be pinned down]]. This makes them near-immune to any melee based character (Bloodshed Zer0 and most Krieg builds) as well as Deathtrap, as they will run the minute you get anywhere near them. And worse, in [[HarderThanHard Ultimate Vault Hunter Mode]], their HealingFactor means that if you spend too long trying to get them to stick around, they'll be healed up and ready for vengeance.

** Are Handsome Jack's brief moments of [[PetTheDog petting the dog]] glimpses that reveal that traces of his humanity remain and he isn't a CompleteMonster or are they deliberately staged by Jack to provoke sympathy from other characters (and by extension, the player)? Creators of the game have supported the former interpretation.

** Are Handsome Jack's brief moments of [[PetTheDog petting the dog]] glimpses that reveal that traces of his humanity remain and he isn't a CompleteMonster total monster or are they deliberately staged by Jack to provoke sympathy from other characters (and by extension, the player)? Creators of the game have supported the former interpretation.



%% Before listing Handsome Jack as a CompleteMonster, please consider that the case has already been brought up in the CM cleanup thread, and he is deemed ambiguous since the motives are not entirely clear (thus why he's listed under AlternativeCharacterInterpretation). In the meantime, don't list him as such anywhere before we get additional clarity.

* {{Anvilicious}}: In ''Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep'', Mr. Torgue wants to take part in the game, but Lilith is suspicious of him being a "fake geek," just in it because it's popular. The quest line ends with her realizing he shouldn't have to prove himself. [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped This, of course, mirrors the problems some real-world female gamers have had to deal with]].

Added DiffLines:

** Unkillable enemy units can still be harmed before you trigger their "vulnerability" flag, which can result in [[https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1103199003 severe loss of limbs]] or [[https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1103199381 severe loss of everything]]. It is easier to trigger by using homing grenades from afar.

Added DiffLines:

** To make it even simpler, just run back to the cave, face the final boss, and you'll only need to shoot until it dies. At worst you'll be dealing with angry Rakks, the final boss tossing a statue your way (which isn't an issue, you can hide behind a rock wall) or very rarely a Crystalisk attacking you. Nothing else can hit you and a Hyperion Supply Station is right in front of you.

** Two words: Dukino's Mom.

** Opportunity is also a tough one. Loaders by the ton, loads of Engineers(who have better aim and higher mobility than Loaders), Constructors are common, and one of the missions is an ''EscortMission''. In fact, quite possibly the ''only'' real EscortMission in the entire game (most of the NPC's you are ''escorting'' are invincible).

** Quite a few characters, some of them being basic enemy types. The Psychos aren't entirely aware what they're doing is wrong, Nomads just want you to fuck off, and sometimes ''prefer'' that you killed them, most of the Loaders aren't even built for combat, Hyperion Engineers are just trying to do their (very morally questionable and overly destructive)jobs...

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Tiny Tina. Some find her to be a hilarious BadassAdorable, but others find her to be obnoxious.


Added DiffLines:

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Claptrap was initially despised in the first game. Thankfully, this game tones down his AnnoyingVideoGameHelper tendencies and he's given plenty of TakeThatScrappy moments throughout the game that make players pity him.
