** Raptors are fast, tough, do considerable damage, have an annoying EMP attack that can stun you, and aside from one occasion are never others of their kind. Worse, when one is killed the other nearby Raptors go into a berserk mode which makes them more aggressive and impossible to outrun (fortunately once this mode ends they're briefly stunned, allowing for an Execute kill).

** In general, the climax with [[spoiler:Senator Armstrong]] is hilarious in light of the 2016 American Presidential Elections, and you can have a lot of fun drawing comparisons between [[spoiler:Armstrong]]'s MotiveRant and [[Creator/DonaldTrump a certain candidate]].

** With ''Anime/KillLaKill'', due to both having two big things in common: SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic and ''ridiculously'' over-the-top action, to the point that fans of ''Kill La Kill'' have more or less decided that if ever a video game is made based on the show, it has to be done by Creator/PlatinumGames. [[WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings Unforuntately]], this thought was engraved so deeply into the developers by the fanbase that Creator/PlatinumGames themselves [[BerserkButton have grown to hate and reject the idea]].

** TierInducedScrappy: Type 2 -- Boris' team can [[InvokedTrope invoke]] this when playing the HarderThanHard VR Missions or Revengeance difficulty. Dying repeatedly at the same checkpoint makes their '''''[[MostAnnoyingSound "RAIDEN?! ANSWER ME! RAAAAIDEEEEEEEN?!?!?!"]]''''' game over shtick wear ''very'' thin. Doktor can also be very annoying in this regard since his death quote involves lamenting over how Raiden should be "stronger than this"... when all the VR missions force you to do them with no life or fuel upgrades and on harder missions this means that 95% of all enemy attacks are {{One Hit Kill}}s.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The free-cutting mechanic is impressive, allowing Raiden to slice up enemies into a million pieces while rarely ever dropping in framerate. It's not perfect, though: cuts at some angles can cause pieces that appear removed from the bodies of enemies to move as though they were still connected.
