* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: ''Deadlocked'' seems intent on [[CaptainObvious pointing out the obvious]] -- repeatedly, and by at least two characters in a row.

* HilariousInHindsight: When Vox [[spoiler:tries to start merchandising Ratchet as the new head Exterminator]], one of the things he mentions is that he'll get movie rights. [[WesternAnimation/RatchetAndClank Even if Vox didn't get them, somebody else certainly did.]]

* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Gleeman Vox]]'s schemes overall were not as wide-scale or devastating as the havoc Chairman Drek committed, but is by ''far'' the more malicious and unstable in personality. Not content with merely kidnapping superheroes and forcing them to fight each other to the death, he keeps them safely imprisoned with collars that shock them or explode if they try to escape and demonstrates the collars on sentient robots. He also isn't above putting the entire planet of Stygia in danger by sabotaging the force fields that protect it from meteor storms, or attempt to murder everyone aboard his space station - including thousands of innocent audiences, some of which are children - all for the simple purpose of improving his ratings.

* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Gleeman Vox]]'s schemes overall were not as wide-scale or devastating as the havoc Chairman Drek committed, but he is by ''far'' the more malicious and unstable in personality. Drek may have been a ruthless planet killer, but his end goal was singleminded greed at the expense of everything else--whereas Vox's goals go well beyond money and ratings and are end products of an unabashedly sadistic, bloodthirsty personality. Not content with merely kidnapping superheroes and forcing them to fight each other to the death, death on live TV, he keeps them safely imprisoned with collars that shock them or explode if they try to escape and demonstrates the collars on sentient robots. He also isn't above putting the entire planet of Stygia in danger by sabotaging the force fields that protect it from meteor storms, or attempt to murder everyone aboard his space station - including thousands of innocent audiences, some of which are children - all for the simple purpose of improving his ratings.



** On an opposite note, Deadlocked brought in its own group of fans that prefer it over the other, more light-hearted titles.

* ThatOneLevel: The Orxon Dread Challenge "Scoring With The Blarg" on Exterminator difficulty. Enemies that hit hard? Check. Having to shoot a certain number of targets to win? Check. Not having control of the Landstalker? Check? No way to heal yourself? Check.

The other Landstalker Rail Shooters on Shaar and Maraxus are pretty hard as well on Exterminator, but not as hard as this one.

* DemonicSpiders: The Executioners, they hit hard, are about as sturdy as a tank, can hit you from a distance as well as close up, and show up ''everywhere'' in the last two-thirds of the game. Luckily, their shots are relatively slow, very predictable, and very easy to dodge.

* GameBreaker: arguably the [[GunsAkimbo Duel Vipers/Raptors]], as they can become so powerful to shred anything short of our BigBad in seconds!

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: At the time of release, many fans felt like this due to the drastic shift the game took. Platforming was even less of a focus, the maps were designed more for Multiplayer rather than Single Player, and the dark tone of the game put many people off. Such a reaction would not be seen by fans until the release of ''RatchetAndClankAll4One'' nearly a decade later. In the case of both, detractors generally agree that while it is a good game, it is not a good Ratchet game.

* MoralEventHorizon: Ace Hardlight had certainly crossed it a long time before the events of ''Deadlocked'', but him not only murdering Captain Starshield on-screen, and almost [[spoiler: killing Al]], all with [[BloodKnight sadistic glee]], makes it clear he's a completely irredeemable villain. His JacobMarleyWarning to Ratchet after his defeat makes up for ''nothing'' that he has done.

* BaseBreaker: Dallas and Juanita; though their commentary is funny at times it really gets kind of annoying when they always try to put Ratchet down during the fights. Dallas sometimes gets impressed with Ratchet's skill but Juanita rarely compliments t^he lombax.

** Then there's the ''Laser Backs''. Oh god the Laser Backs. They're like the Executioners, but with everything cranked UpToEleven plus the ability to hover. They basically look like [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere giant flying]] [[PirateNinjaZombieRobot robot crawfish]] with rapid fire guns that hit ''hard''. If more than one suddenly shows up, you'd better make destroying them your new top priority, especially if there are already Executioners around.

They're like Compared to the Executioners, but with everything cranked UpToEleven plus the ability Laser Backs are just as powerful, perhaps just as tough, have faster and harder to hover. dodge attacks, track your movements whilst hovering in mid-air, and typically show up in groups of two or more.
