* AdaptationDisplacement: Despite using ThirdIs3D, a lot of people aren't aware that the "FirstPersonShooter series" actually started with two side-scrolling platformers.



* SequelDisplacement: Anybody remember ''VideoGame/DukeNukemI'' or ''[[VideoGame/DukeNukemII II]]''? It's a shame really, since they were decent platformers and ''II'' was an EvenBetterSequel to ''I''.

* AcceptableProfessionalTargets: All the police officers you meet are hostile and must be killed. And they all are portrayed as [[PigMan pig men]].

* EarWorm: "[=GrabBag=]", the title music of ''[=DN3D=]''. An MP3 of it is available for download from the composer's site, and the MIDI files of it [[http://leejacksonaudio.lbjackson.com/ are available as well.]]

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Url3QHHNKSA Here's]] the theme for Shop 'n' Bag from the Atomic Edition, which is basically a smoother, more jazzy version of the main theme.
* DemonicSpiders: The Inflatable Sea Monsters in Duke Caribbean relentlessly barrage you with missiles the millisecond you come into sight, usually from around a corner and with absolutely no warning. Thankfully, they go down with only one shotgun blast, but expect to do lots of SaveScumming.

** In [=v1.3D=], you could select the Mighty Foot as a weapon and then kick with the melee button, at the same time! Result: Duke somehow manages to run around while both of his feet are on screen, whacking enemies. (Un)fortunately fixed in later versions.

Result: Duke somehow manages to run around while both of his feet are on screen, whacking enemies. (Un)fortunately enemies, apparently doing ThatRussianSquatDance and/or [[Franchise/MortalKombat Liu Kang's flying bicycle kick]]. Unfortunately, fixed in later versions.



* HilariousInHindsight: The ''Megaton Edition'' was published by Devolver Digital - before ''VideoGame/HotlineMiami'', best known for publishing the ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' games, a series that reveled in taking the piss out of ''Duke'', particularly the long development time of ''Forever''.



* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: ''Nuclear Winter'' is the least liked expansion pack, and the only one 3D Realms didn't make. It doesn't help that the first two levels are just remixed versions of ones from the base game.

** Less so the UsefulNotes/MegaDrive port. It does have a pretty decent framerate, considering how big the "first-person view" screen is, compared to other [=FPS=] games on that console, not to mention the save system which allows you to backup everywhere. Nothing else makes up for it properly, though: the whole port consists of 9 new levels, very loosely based off the Lunar Apocalypse episode, all done in a [[VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D Wolf3D]]-like perspective, all peppered-up with barely audiable music and slightly messy controls. [[labelnote:*]]And that's not even for Duke himself: in order to pause the game, you will need to not just press the Start button, [[DamnYouMuscleMemory but also X, Y and Z,]] all at the same time![[/labelnote]] Oh, and it didn't help that shortly after the game was released in Brazil (the only country that received a Mega Drive port), the whole thing got banned.
