** Angel. A former wrestler who claims the Boss isn't tough enough to fight Killbane, even though they've dived into a plane, took on ''the army'' and ''won'', and killed countless gangbangers. When Angel actually faces Killbane, he's thrown out of the ring, leaving the Boss fight him instead. The fact that, after making a big deal about simply killing him is pointless and beating him will be enough, he then pressures you into going after and killing him later, making you choose between killing him and saving Shaundi.

Another nail in his coffin is that, unlike Zimos, you can take out him and his entire story from the game and it would lose nothing.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: The existence of STAG seems out of proportion, until you remember the amount of force and power the Saints alone have, much less other gangs. They regularly cause mayhem on a scale Zombie bin Laden and the Islamic State would envy. You'd think the government would have stepped in ''much sooner.''

* AuthorsSavingThrow: A small one (in the DLC), but still sweet. [[spoiler:After the invasion of Steelport, the Boss encounters a diehard Johnny Gat fan who went so far as to clone him. It did not go according to plan. The next few missions revolve around trying to calm Tag (Johnny's clone) which includes Pierce dressing as Aisha in drag and singing her songs (it fails since Pierce is not really that good at imitating her)... plus another equally disturbing brute clone of Aisha (fails because Steelport's guard missiles the hell out of her). Finally, in a homage to ''Film/KingKong'', the Saints fight off the Steelport guard trying to kill Tag and talk him down. While it's clear Tag isn't Gat, the Boss is still eager to make up for the fact that s/he couldn't save their friend.]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And then they go to find a stripper pole.]]

** The Boss' personality mellows out a bit in this installment, and s/he gets a bump from full-on VillainProtagonist in ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' to a less cruel, but still dark AntiHero with a better sense of humor, addressing fan complaints that the previous game made our protagonist a little bit ''too'' hard to root for.

** "Learning Computer", starts off easy enough with getting to the STAG PR building and fighting some STAG soldiers and Decker mooks. But then you have to chase a truck down to retrieve a computer you were gonna steal in a tank and have to blow the tires out with the machine gun. Sounds simple, right? Well it would be if Pierce, who's manning the laser cannon, didn't shoot in front of you to get at the Deckers trying to stop you and, since most of them are ''right next to the truck'', could easily destroy said truck and fail the mission. What makes this harder is that trying to get the front tires is an utter pain in the ass and the tank moves....well like a tank, meaning you'll have a hard time trying to keep up. Especially since you have to swerve to keep Pierce's shots away from the truck.

Especially since you have to swerve to keep Pierce's shots away from the truck.[note]The best way to complete the mission is to start firing on the front wheels facing you as soon as you see the truck then quickly getting to the other side and shooting those tires out. If you can mange before the Deckers and STAG vehicles show it, you might be able to end the mission much earlier before Pierce has a chance to start firing.[/note]

****[[spoiler: Likely someone who got plastic surgery to look like Johnny Gat (like the actor who played Johnny Gat in "Gangsters In Space") who got killed and later zombified by Eye For An Eye.]]

** Above all, the Decker Specialists. While they have the lowest health of practically every enemy in the game, they make up for it with their FlashStep abilities, their ridiculous amount of damage and unlike the Morningstar and Luchadore specialists, they have a multitude of attacks such as a spinning attack from [[ResidentEvil5 a certain other third-person shooter]] and their Shock Hammer which always ragdolls and hurts a player, regardless of upgrades. In [[BestLevelEver ''HTTP://Deckers.Die'']], they become even more frustrating by not only spawning in far greater numbers but combined with the effects in the level, such as forced lag, the specialists are known to wipe out players very easily, even when assisted by a co-op partner.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The last mission [[spoiler: of the "Save Shaundi" ending]], "Gangstas in Space". It might qualify as a GainaxEnding as well.
** During the mission "Pimps Up, Hos Down", you pass by a caged Brute in the brothel's sex dungeon. Wearing drag. Complete with a girly wig with pigtails and blush. Neither the Boss nor Zimos will comment on it and you can't free it with the rest of the hos.

** If you tend to run without homies backing you up (And henceforth avoid the Homie Hostility alluded to in ScrappyMechanic ), then Explosive rounds on your starting pistols are your best friend. With fully upgraded ammo capacity and dual wielding, these humble pistols become capable of bringing down almost anything STAG can throw at you, and are spectacular at crowd control, especially if you're good at headshots.

** Early Cuyler/Unkown Hinson's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T9mwEV0WWg "Save Me From Myself"]], a proud song of Early causing his fair share of trouble, perfect for ramming your way through a police barricade.
** Hybrid's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJrmm5P5WSw "Just For Today"]], played when The Boss jumps out of [[spoiler: a Syndicate airplane]]. It gives you the feeling of going through free fall while dodging [[spoiler: cars and crates]].
