* CultClassic: However, TimSchafer expressed the fact that he is very sick of his games reaching this status.

* HollywoodHypeMachine: EA's multimillion-dollar attempt to hide the gameplay against the wishes of TimSchafer.
* HypeAversion: ElectronicArts and TimSchafer each advertised very different things on this game. In many videos, TimSchafer talked almost exclusively on the multiplayer aspect, because it's the part he worked on the most, and was the point of the whole game (the single player world and story were created after the multiplayer was finished.) EA on the other hand advertised the presence of Creator/JackBlack, and hyped the game up immensely without actually talking about the gameplay. Players who went exclusively by the hype and the single player demo did not take the UnexpectedGameplayChange well. Double Fine did not enjoy the marketing push at all. EA completely and intentionally hid the gameplay that TimSchafer wanted players to see the most.

** TimSchafer met one who asked him to lose intentionally to boost achievements. He wasn't amused.
-->'''TimSchafer:''' "surrender plz? surrender plz??? This is what I go online for? To have some kid tell me "surrender plz" at my own game?"

* {{Misblamed}}: TimSchafer and Double Fine get all the flack for the MisaimedMarketing, when it was ElectronicArts fault.

** Fans blame EA for poor sales due to marketing ''Brütal Legend'' as a massive single player adventure instead of marketing the Stage Battles, regardless of the fact they were considered good in their focus tests. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbpXAx_F-P0 This is the one and only multiplayer commercial from EA.]] Not very convincing. No matter how much TimSchafer tried to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGrK70GgTXM pour his heart out]] on the Stage Battles months before release, it was drowned out by EA's hype, and especially the single player demo.

* [[TaintedByThePreview Tained By The Demo]]: TimSchafer talked about nothing but the stage battles and the multiplayer. ElectronicArts talked about nothing but the story, Creator/JackBlack, and the single player, and nothing about the gameplay. The demo was only the first five minutes of the whole game. Guess whose message got to players. (Hint: Not the guy who made the game.)

** The instrumental metal soundtrack by LucasArts / Double Fine mainstay Peter [=McConnell=] is very cool, even if [[JustHereForGodzilla you're probably not listening to it]].

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: A video game about Jack Black using ThePowerOfRock at liberal levels to do everything. Additionally, the RTS quality of the game apparently felt this way for EA (and formerly Vivendi), which led to them [[ScrewedByTheNetwork marketing it as an action game]]. Given that the game has suffered a lot of criticism not just for the stage battles, but for the mechanics of the stage battles, they may not have been entirely wrong.

** ThreeInchesOfBlood also has expressed pride that their music was in the game (note that they're not strangers to having music in a game; one of their songs in this game, "Deadly Sinners", had been featured before in ''[[TonyHawksProSkater Tony Hawk's Underground 2]]'').

* ThatOneLevel: "Dry Ice, Wet Graves" on Brütal difficulty is by far the hardest mission in the game. Trying to hold off the Drowning Doom long enough for you to build your army means that you can't afford to waste a single moment when it comes to building units and securing fan geysers.

** Bobby Kotick claimed ''Brütal Legend'' was not a good game. It's a SpiritualSuccessor to an {{Activision}} game called ''VideoGame/{{Battlezone|1998}}''.
