* ThatOneAttack: Slick's telekinesis attack in the remakes. It knocks out a huge chunk of your life and is difficult to avoid. The best way to deal with it is to prevent him from using it.

** Slick being a relatively weak AntiClimax boss at the end of the game in the original NES version makes a lot of sense when you consider [[spoiler: he's Alex's weaker childhood friend Simon who wanted to prove he was strong.]]

* AntiClimaxBoss: Slick will very rarely pose a threat to anyone strong enough to reach him. Unlike the Twins, Tex, and Ivan, he has no special moves and isn't anything more than an EliteMook. The GBA remake ''more'' than makes up for this, however, giving him a new ([[ThatOneAttack and powerful]]) telekinesis attack and making him stronger overall and a more worthy final opponent.

** In 2016, a secret password was found in the game that goes against the usual Password format (The password being "MShin/Technos/Japan") and also maxes out every stat, including some previously unknown ones such as a combo speed stat, maxes out money, and gives all of the book techniques, including the GameBreaker moves above. Have fun mopping the floor with every gang member in the city.

* GameBreaker: Stone Hands, Dragon Feet, or Grand Slam in the NES version. Acro Circus or Torpedo in EX, although your reputation will be trashed if you abuse them.

** The double chain typically carried by The Eagles, which has insane reach and can be spammed just as fast as any other weapon. It gets even worse with Grand Slam.

to:

** In the NES version, ledges. If a screen contains a brick wall, a fence, or any other ledge you can jump onto, then you can easily wipe the floor there with even the toughest gangs and bosses--simply because the enemies ''cannot'' jump. Get onto a ledge and the enemies will typically approach as close as possible, then just stand there, and they won't move again until you touch the ground. So all you have to do is to jump down, punch them once, jump back before they have a chance to react, rinse and repeat. And if the ledge is low enough, you can kick them without even jumping off.

* DemonicSpiders: The ''very first'' gang that attacks you, on the first screen of the game, attacks faster and harder than almost every other set of mooks in the city. Your best bet for survival is to run immediately into the next screen.

* FridgeBrilliance: When you load a savefile, you must also specify a save file for the other main character, even if you decide to start out without him. If you do start alone, the other protagonist will confront and fight you at the end of the tire factory. When beaten, he will drop a usually large amount of money, although in some cases almost no money at all. Now, consider [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist you drop half of your money when you are knocked out]].
