** The ending played it both ways--it also said ToBeContinued (in the same font used at the end of ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', no less). Yet another way the ending attempted to give everyone a MindScrew.



* SpiritualLicensee: ''No More Heroes'' and ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle'' feels like an adaption of ''Anime/AfroSamurai'' and ''Afro Samurai: Ressurection'' set in the modern day. Both stories involve reaching the No.1 assassin/the No.1 headband, the cycle of revenge, and the former No.1 getting back his title after falling out.

Added DiffLines:

** Jeanne's "No More Heroes Forever" line - which at the time of release, was taking a [[TakeThat pot shot]] at ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'''s DevelopmentHell history - takes on a much harsher context after the game actually was finished and released in 2011, but critically flopped.


Added DiffLines:

** ''No More Heroes'' was already chock full of ''Franchise/StarWars'' references, including the use of lightsabers. In a more original design, Henry wields a beam katana with a cross-guard made up of four laser blades. Nearly eight years after the game's release, ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' features a villain who also wields a lightsaber with a cross-guard (albeit made up of two blades instead of four).

* BestBossEver: Henry is a DuelBoss with an ''outrageous'' amount of health on Bitter who is extremely deft with a blade and has what is perhaps the most awesome OneHitKill MeteorMove ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNsyofCN-a4 ever]]''. And to top it off, the stellar BossRemix known as "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome We Are Finally Cowboys]]" is blaring in the background. He's also the pinnacle of "Real Difficulty" in the game. Your standard dodge-and-counter tactics will work, but it will take forever. His attacks are telegraphed ''just'' enough to be fair, depending on how much damage they do. He can be dizzied, but it takes a suitably large number of consecutive hits to do it, but he also offers very small windows for guard breaks. And of course, he can take close to a '''thousand''' hits, not counting any wrestling moves you land on him. A MarathonBoss if there ever was one.

** NoMoreHeroes and the sequel are well known for having fantastic boss fights (with a few exceptions.) Bad Girl is also a frequently cited favorite.

* BreatherLevel: Letz Shake. Destroyman, despite being a fan favorite, is a fairly easy boss to take care of and his stage is nothing special either. And it comes right in between Shinobu and Holly, considered two of the harder bosses in the game.

* FreudWasRight: The way Travis charges his sword looks like he's jerking it off. It gets worse in the sequel when the icon for the beam sword's power meter turned out to look like a dildo...
** ...If by "dildo" you mean "a wang with a face that is proportionally longer, more erect and happier the more charge you have in your sword", then yes.

* ThatOneBoss: Bad Girl is guaranteed to kill you at least once unless you already know that she's going to pull a [[spoiler:WoundedGazelleGambit]] (and even then, just getting close enough to check to make sure she's not holding back will probably get you killed anyway). Then she's... still very hard, having great damage output, health and mobility.
** Shinobu is one of the more reviled bosses, ''especially'' on Bitter. She's extremely dodgy and evasive, she'll outright make you lose every weapon clash, and she has that damn Gengoken ([[spoiler:nearly instant-kill]]) and multi-shot Sonic Sword that will make you beg for mercy. Doing nothing but low charged attacks and some occasional sword swipes can make the fight easier, though.
