* HellIsThatNoise: Gaige while being damaged from elemental sources. Unlike the other Vault Hunters, she screams out in pain. It will get under your skin and want the damage to stop ''now''.
** Axton will make a very erotic "Oh" when he's fighting, which sounds...very out of place amongst his other, cheerful combat lines.
** The scream Angel makes when [[spoiler: Jack electrocutes her.]]

* BrokenBase:
** Over the Mechromancer and Psycho [=DLCs=]. Most players don't have a problem with Gaige and Krieg themselves, and they're great in gameplay, but some fans did note that for those who didn't pre-order, 800 Microsoft Points/$10 is a pretty steep asking price (Especially since the add-on characters aren't in the Season Pass DLC). After the announcement and release of Krieg, in particular, it got pretty bad, to the point where ''every'' post on the Borderlands Game Facebook community (and pretty much anyplace else Borderlands 2 was discussed) drew complaint responses from fans who thought the character [=DLCs=] should have been included in the Season Pass, and counter-complaints from fans annoyed with the complainers.
** Some fans are not pleased about the fact that the level cap has not been increased past 50, even after the release of three (out of four) DLC packs. After 6 months a [[http://www.joystiq.com/2013/03/24/borderlands-2-getting-new-class-level-cap-raise-in-the-next-few/ cap increase has finally been confirmed]] as well as a brand new NewGamePlus, which eased tensions somewhat. Unfortunately, the eleven-level cap increase also happened to be released as paid DLC, resulting in similar complaints as the Mechromancer DLC. Luckily, the level cap increase is a bonus part of the Season Pass.
** While the serious moments of the game are usually considered to be well written, this game and ''Pre Sequel'' have come under flack for Anthony Burch's overusage of pop culture memes. While they were in the first game, the games Burch wrote use them as a heavy base for the comedy in the game, which some people thought was purely lazy. Others, namely people who don't mind the origins of the jokes, counter that the voice acting is strong enough to hold the comedy.
*** To a lesser extent, the shift from the more serious tone of the first game to full blown BlackComedy. While you could argue that the transition began with the first game's [=DLCs=], it really came to a head with 2's release. Some people love it and prefer it to the first, which they consider to have taken itself too seriously, while others would prefer a return to a bleaker tone.
** Adding to the above moment concerning the comedy; is the gunplay and other story moments strong enough to hold the game up, or is it a cheap sequel that does little to actually innovate?

** [=W4R-D3N=] is a nightmare if you don't have electric or corrosive weapons to handle both its shield and the [[MookMaker masses of Loaders that it spawns on you]]. And if you get it down to no shield, it'll start spawning Badass Loaders, which are much tougher to kill.

** Three Horns Divide and Valley has great [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11CP9V64X3I ambient]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Txc-CcdquvM combat]] themes, the former is desolate and cold and paints the area as a barren wasteland long since abandoned by the major companies and left for the raiders to pick apart while the latter's heavy use of a resonator guitar adds a sort of oomph to the music.

** In playthrough 2, Armored Psychos. You know how Psychos love to get in your face and beat the crap out of you while you're dealing with enemies at mid- to long range? Well, same deal... except these have armor that lets them soak damage like a ShamWow. Averted however, if you have a good corrosive weapon on you and remember to use it on them.

** Handsome Jack's [[ChildAbuse abusive childhood]] causes a lot of these. Is Jack a monster who imprisoned and manipulated his daughter solely for his own gain? Or does he genuinely care for her well being, but [[FreudianExcuse doesn't know how to do so in a healthy way?]]

** For a while, you could power-level by repeatedly accepting the "You Are Cordially Invited: RSVP" mission and killing Flesh-Stick over and over. This was especially exploitable in co-op, where one player would keep accepting the mission and the other would keep killing him. He would spawn every time you start the mission, and killing him would fail it, and he also gave a ton of experience when killed (probably because he's a boss character, after a fashion). And he's not much tougher than a regular psycho. You can see the problem. A patch would eventually fix this -- killing Flesh-Stick no longer nets you ''any'' experience.
** There was a bug around release that left many a player with a good giggle. During the intro, just after beating Knuckle Dragger and when approaching the barge, you know how Claptrap tries to unlock it and instead the barge gets locked? Well, there were a few instances where the barge would actually unlock and open rather than shut itself. The hilarity of the situation wasn't helped at all by Claptrap giving a farewell speech.



* DudeNotFunny: The name of the Zaford's pub, if you're a Christian. There's bad puns and then there's religeous harassment.



* EvilIsCool / EvilIsSexy: The Sheriff, hands down.

** [[spoiler: '''Handsome Jack''', of all people, could count as well.. His cons may [[MoralEventHorizon outweigh his pros]], but once one learns of his crappy life, one can't help but feel a tiny bit of sympathy for him.]]

*** [[FromBadToWorse Badassasaurus Rex]] in TVHM takes [[UpToEleven this up to 11]] and is quite possibly one of the hardest and most awful designed bosses in the whole game. Forgot to mention it can reflect bullets straight back at you so you have to resort to taking quick pop shots then getting cover straight after. Pretty much every single one of his attacks kill you instantly and you can't run around the arena because it's too fast and will eventually just kill you.
