** Even though it mocks a lot of elements from Creator/{{Bioware}} games, ''Saints Row IV'' windsup making for a pretty good ''Franchise/MassEffect'' game. Invasion of Earth from an unstoppable alien force, super powers, loyalty quests, romance options, inclusion of Creator/KeithDavid as your right hand man - It's all there.

* SpiritualLicensee: It's essentially the closest we'll probably ever get to ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}} 3''.

* TakeThatScrappy: Shaundi being called out for her unlikable behavior by [[spoiler:her past self]] is quite cathartic for those who hated SR3 Shaundi.



** "Pounding the Pavement" and "I Am Become Death" are also very grindy. The former requires you to kill 150 aliens with the Stomp ability, while the latter requires you to kill 1000 aliens with superpowers. Much harder and more tedious than it sounds, because Stomp doesn't do a lot of damage even when upgraded and only "Alien Kills" count, not "Explosive Kills", which can be a problem after you upgrade your powers.

*** Made even worse with the Christmas themed version bundled with "How The Saints Saved Christmas" DLC. While the time limit is generous enough, this time, the targets move. The worst part is that the activity will randomly bug, causing you to not able to pick up items to be thrown.

Added DiffLines:

** Smaller one compared to the other two; but the lack of a dedicated heavy metal station upset a few fans who really enjoyed the metal selections offered in previous games. Some, while they do lament the loss, can carry on with no problems.

** The game's storytelling is getting compared with the story heavy-hitters of 2013 ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' and ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite''. Clearly an improvement over the previous games of the series and probably says something about TroyBaker.

** The entire game seems to be based on the philosophy of making an entire game out of ''SaintsRowTheThird'''s "HTTP://deckers.die" mission, which was one of the more universally well-liked parts of said game.

** Speaking of Creator/TroyBaker, Asha's Loyalty mission becomes this as well, considering that it's a giant ShoutOut to MetalGearSolid and Troy Baker is now voicing Revolver Ocelot in MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain.

** Kinzie's [[TookALevelInJerkass completely jerkass demeanor]] in the game can make players view her as a [[TheScrappy scrappy]] who's character is almost a CreatorsPet that gets no repercussions for her constant whining, insulting, hypocritical and violent tendencies all usually directed towards the Boss.



** One of Wrestling/RoddyPiper's homie conversations ends with him realizing that [[spoiler:he is dead along with everyone else on Earth.]] Real life Roddy Piper died in in 2015.

** At one point the Boss dances to "Simply Irresistible".

** At one point in ''Enter The Dominatrix'' the Boss dances (or as [[spoiler:Matt Miler]] calls it, having a seizure) to "Simply Irresistible". While dressed up as a stripper cowboy.
