* MemeticLoser: Drake himself -- in no small part due to his stupidity, ''canonically'' dying frequently, his dialogue and attempts at being cool coming off as [[{{Narm}} incredibly corny]], and in general just coming off as über-lame rather than the no-nonsense badass you can tell he so ''desperately'' wants to come off as.

* ClicheStorm: Let's face it- Drake's not too original and neither is anything else.
* FridgeLogic: WebOriginal/ProJared pointed out in his review how stupid the use of the ThrowAwayGuns trope is in this game, since Drake is a professional assassin throwing away dozens of guns covered in his fingerprints. He also points out how Drake somehow manages to bring his master's physical body to the guardians' realm- which Drake can only get to by dying and going there in his spirit form.

* SignatureScene: Drake ''jumping out of a window'' under the (very wrong) belief that he's invincible, and dying afterward. It sets the tone of the rest of the cutscenes in the game.
* SoBadItsGood: Similarly to the VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames: The gameplay is undoubtedly terrible, but the cutscenes are ''vastly'' better despite being so cheesy.
* UncannyValley: The models of the characters are just as bad as the rest of the game, with Drake in particular looking like he has no teeth and regularly having a weird, slack-jawed expression on his face. The poor implementation of the lock-on ability also means that Drake's arms flail wildly during gameplay and bend and contort in impossible directions; not only does Drake's death animation have him lift his arms (at awkward angles, natch) in vain as he tries to sit back up, this sometimes glitches and causes said arms to aim at gameplay targets ''after he's dead''.

** And finally, Drake himself, a black cloak-wearing, undead assassin who wields GunsAkimbo and throws them away instead of reloading them. Wait, [[VideoGame/{{Overwatch}} Reaper]], is that you?

* BileFascination: Most people check this game out to see how awful it is.

** The infamous scene near the beginning where [[IdiotHero Drake]] [[TooDumbToLive throws himself out of a skyscraper window]] under the belief that he's become invincible ([[EpicFail And dies]]) becomes a lot funnier when you realise it's a lot like [[https://youtu.be/NpI0s0ky53I?t=1m9s a very similar scene]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobSquarepantsMovie''.

* CounterpartComparison: Drake seems to be similar to Reaper from ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' since both are edgy assassins who drop their weapons and pull out new ones rather than reload them.
