*** The machine gun on Kinzie's helicopter is actually fantastic. It has no spin-up time, can fire infinitely without overheating, and it's ''hitscan''. You never have to fire a single missile.

** Boss is, evidently, a ''Film/TopGun'' fan and has a huge crush on Burt Reynolds. Not only is ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'' both of these Reynolds would later appear in the episode ''The Man From Jupiter.'' ** The paralysing one quest giver has of mascots almost seems sane an rational in the light of "VideoGame/{{FiveNightsAtFreddys}}"

** However, most of the [[GameBreaker game-breaking upgrades]] [[PurposelyOverpowered cannot be reasonably accessed until very late in-game.]] For example, all infinite-ammo and immunity to damage type requires at least level 46, which can only be reached if you complete almost all activities. While in the last game, several GameBreaker (such as infinite pistol ammo, immunity to falling and infinite sprint) can be gained very easily as early as the third storyline mission.

** Survival missions themselves are not so bad. But being called to go do them when you're on the way to some other sidequest, which often entails driving across the district? Now that's the annoying part.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Some people aren't thrilled about Shaundi's new look, personality and [[TheOtherDarrin new voice actor]]. When she was originally played by Creator/ElizaDushku, it's a big pair of heels to fill. Some would say Danielle Nicolet does a admirable job of portraying a more mature Shaundi, but they couldn't have gotten a similar voice actress and retained some of the character's personality? Some actually thought she was a new character at first until they realized she was 'the pothead chick with the dreads' from SR2.

** [[EscortMission Guardian Angel]]. The Boss has to cover Pierce from a helicopter, first with a rocket-launcher while Pierce is in a car, then via SniperRifle from a distant building top as Pierce runs on foot. The problem with the first part of this is that Pierce has a habit of driving right beside the cars The Boss needs to blow up, and needless to say when your escort target is near enemies and all you have is a high-damage HerdHittingAttack you risk doing more damage to him than the enemies. Then when covering him with a SniperRifle The Boss can be more selective, but it does not help when he and the targets going after him are behind a building, well out of The Boss' line of sight and ability to cover.

** As well as being a BestLevelEver, ''HTTP://deckers.die'' can be this early on if you fight the enemies before your virtual body fully uploads, which gives you the gun needed. Also the part of the mission where you Matt forces lag on you, which causes you and the enemies to jump around the place at random. Worst part is that the enemies you have to fight are the Decker's [[EliteMook specialists]], which are dangerous enough with their FlashStep, but the lag makes it ridiculous.

** Snatch. Possibly even moreso than Escort (see the ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' entry for why that one's so reviled), due to [[ArtificialStupidity the hos you need to pick up sometimes getting hung up walking around the car instead of getting in the car]] while you have an entire army of gang members shooting at you. Even with a fully upgraded vehicle, it may not be durable enough to withstand all the bullets being thrown at you. Worse off, if you're not careful and stay parked too long trying to get one of the hos to get in the car already, an enemy gang member might pull you out of the car, causing them to exit and you losing even more valuable seconds trying to get them in the car in the first place and right the hell out of the group of gang members trying to kill you all.

** Heli Assault. Specifically, the ones with Kinzie. The Pierce missions aren't so bad, because you get a heavily armored, highly maneuverable gunship with homing missiles and a minigun, but the Kinzie missions give you a clunky, old POS with dumb missiles and a much less powerful machine gun...but don't reduce the number, toughness, or armaments of your opponents accordingly.

* ToughActToFollow / ContestedSequel: ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' was very well-liked and had a lot going for it. The majority of the complaints about ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' compare it to the second game; "the second game had more secret areas", "clothing customization was better", etc.

* MostAnnoyingSound: Whenever there is a mission where you need to protect a homie from up above in a helicopter, be prepared for countless and countless comments of them criticizing you which gets in the way of your focus of trying to blow up enemy cars.

** Not a character, but the entire Decker gang is quite popular among the fans, mainly for their outfits, hideout, British accents and their challenging specialist. Special note goes to the Decker grunt outfit you can unlock in Kinzie's final assassination mission which is widely popular for various reasons. Simply put, there's a reason why almost the entirety of ''SaintsRowIV'' resembles the final Deckers mission, and all of the superpowers are roundabout ways of giving you the powers of Decker lieutenants.
