** [[spoiler:Gideon's]] OneWingedAngel form. It requires that you use the provided weapon to have a chance to beat this boss and if you lose it (which you have a good chance to with thier lousy pick-up responce) you have to fight with your fists. The boss a sucker punch that launches you off the stage when it hits you and will keep doing it everytime you respawn, right into the path of the punch. What makes this worse is this is part of Level 7, the [[MarathonLevel longest level]] of the game!

* GameBreaker: Several to potentially {{nerf}} the game's NintendoHard difficulty.
** Wallace's Mystery Shop; buying the [[VideoGame/BionicCommando Bionic Arm]] (which really, should just take 2-3 runs through the first stage) drastically reduces the difficulty of the game; let alone the other items sold there. The strength book available at the bookstore actually provides slightly better value, and each book is about 1/5 the price of the Bionic Arm, so you can increase your strength more gradually.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The ''Wallace Wells DLC'' by means of PerpetualBeta. Not only was it pushed back incessantly for months and months, but [[WordOfGod Bryan Lee O'Malley]] even made (later removed) disapproving comments about the DLC.

* ArtEvolution: Over the course of the series, O'Malley's style became streamlined, much more rounded and even more cartoony. [[https://theprettybooks.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/scottpilgrim.png Compare]] the cover for Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life to the new art O'Malley did for the hardcover re-release of the book.

* GoodBadBugs: It is possible to get infinite money in the ''very first level''. Once you get to the Shopping District, buy a snack, any snack. Put in the "Commit Suicide for $50" code. You will not lose a life, because the snack will revive you. Buy another snack, repeat as much as you want.

* HarsherInHindsight: Gideon's plan, after he was dumped, was to write a post about Ramona, post it online, and gather the exes, who can be likened to a hate group. After 2014 brought some similar real-life events, this plan feels even more diabolical.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The League of Ramona's Evil-Exes could be just a group therapy comprising emotionally destroyed people who loved Ramona Flowers. She broke all their hearts in the worst ways possible, and she didn't care how messed up they became. Gideon could be half evil and half broken; the rest just want to keep Ramona from doing it all over again and are messed up in thinking that beating her new potential love interests (Scott, for example) will break the cycle.

* AntiClimaxBoss: Lucas Lee. Scott asks Lucas to show off his skateboarding skills. Lucas wipes out and hits the curb. Scott wins by default. Scott even comments afterwards, "That was the worst fight ever!" - though it's mainly because he couldn't pick up the Mithril Skateboard Lucas leaves behind.
* {{Anvilicious}}: Never sell out or you'll end up being in the clutches of pretentious hipsters.

* BaseBreaker / DieForOurShip: Ramona has ended up becoming this in retrospect, due to sects of the fans preferring Scott to end up with Knives or Kim.
** This can mostly be tied to the movie where Knives is shown to be a much more compatible girlfriend for Scott and even ended up with him in the original ending.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Gilded Palace of Flying Burritos.
** Subverted kinda, Ramona asks about Scott's previous job in the first volume, and he says it's a long story so she responds with "we'll save it for another volume".

** Early into Volume 6, Scott was having another one of his bizarre dreams; this time he's all alone in the desert. He looks looks up to the sky to see an [[LightIsNotGood angelic]] Ramona Flowers, who swoops down and impales Scott [[spoiler:with The Power of Love sword]], pinning him to the ground. She flies away. Then the sky suddenly becomes dark and three monstrous figures appear out of nowhere and proceed to eat his limbs, with Scott [[ThisIsGonnaSuck being completely helpless]] to watch in horror as he suffers being eaten alive. After the monsters ate his arms and legs, he got a good glimspe of the monsters: [[spoiler:it turns out the monsters were Envy, Knives, and Kim, each with razor-sharp teeth and a [[SlasherSmile psychotic]] [[CheshireCatGrin grin]] (Knives might stick out to some with her [[{{Creepypasta}} smile.jpg]]-esque grin).]]

*** A more strenuous alternative involving the use of an external memory storage device, a "dummy" Xbox 360 or [=PlayStation=] 3 profile, and SaveScumming can allow those to double their cash.
* GoddamnedBats: Particularly in the Twins' stages. Also the swooping birds in Level 6. On a less literal level, there's the paparazzi enemies in Lucas' stage, who don't do much damage but can and will repeatedly stun you with their camera flashes, and the domino-masked "thief" foes in Roxy's stage, who like to bodycheck you and steal your coins. And they're fast, so can do it multiple times.

* ObviousBeta: When the Wallace Wells DLC was finally released, people soon noticed said EnsembleDarkhorse [[AndYourRewardIsClothes is just Stephen Stills save for a different head and two new special moves]]. Granted, a great deal of focus was on releasing online play, but Wallace doesn't even get his own ending -- winning as him earns you [[AWinnerIsYou a picture of Wallace sitting in a chair.]] ''The winning picture is even the exact picture they used in the DLC trailers.''



* SpiritualLicensee: There are some that call this game [[FanNickname another name]], RiverCityRansom 2
* ThatOneBoss: While a lot of them have the potential to be that one boss, [[spoiler:Nega-Scott]] is generally regarded to be the most difficult of them all. Unless you ''really'' know what you're doing, tackling him alone is begging for an ass whooping.
