* CreepyAwesome:
** Gideon Graves is a HateSink and a demonstration of what the other evil exes could be if they upped their game. Which, for many, is why he's so cool. You can hate him without having to care, but his abusive tendencies and [[spoiler: HeroKiller]] skills give him an odd aura of nightmares the rest of the series doesn't have.
** Nega Scott, of course, being Scott's EnemyWithin.

** Roxannne's DiagonalCut in Volume 4 is very offsetting to look at.

** Roxannne's Roxanne's DiagonalCut in Volume 4 is very offsetting to look at.


Added DiffLines:

** Almost everything about Gideon. In addition to his paranoia-inducing use of subspace and spy and control emotions, the guy froze and collected his ex-girlfriends, and was planning to do the same thing with Ramona. He is the only character that [[spoiler:successfully ''killed'' Scott (even if he comes back to life using the 1-Up he got from beating Todd)]] and his sword fight is easily [[BloodierAndGorier the most violent part of the entire comic series.]] It's rather unsettling to see each of his slashes draw a huge amount of blood from Scott when every single other prior battle, including [[HalftheManHeUsedToBe what happened to Roxie,]] was bloodless.

!![[VideoGame/ScottPilgrim The Video Game]]
* EightPointEight: The game was given a 6.5 by Gamespot and a 50% by [=GamesMaster=] magazine, whereas other reviews of the game have given it 7s and 8s.
* AdaptationDistillation: Don't like the MoodWhiplash or mixed messages of the comic? Don't like the uneven feel of the movie? Here, have a BeatEmUp without any of the baggage of either!
* AntiClimaxBoss: The Katanayagi Twins have a distressing tendency to run straight into your attacks. Together. And if you brought a weapon with you, the fight will end even faster.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: As mentioned before. '''Music/{{Anamanaguchi}}''' did the music. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNIAqNY7LPk See how awesome it is yourself.]] And if that wowed you, you can always buy the original soundtrack!
* BestBossEver: [[spoiler:Despite being [[AntiClimaxBoss pretty]] [[BreatherBoss easy]], [[HumongousMecha Super]] [[{{Anime/MazingerZ}} Robot]] [[MacrossMissileMassacre Fighter]] [[FrickingLaserBeams is]] ''[[AwesomeMusic awesome]].'']]
* BreatherBoss: Aside of his special attack [[spoiler:with missiles, [[HumongousMecha Super Robot Fighter]]]] is really weak.
* EndingFatigue: Level 7. You ride an elevator down into the Chaos Theater and fight Gideon, then endure [[ThatOneLevel a very short but extremely annoying subspace stage]], then fight Gideon again [[spoiler:in his huge OneWingedAngel form]], then run through a robot-themed stage, then fight Gideon ''again'', [[spoiler:then it turns out that Gideon was [[ActuallyADoombot a robot]] and you have to punch the real one once to beat him]], and ''then'' you're finished.
* GameBreaker: Several to potentially {{nerf}} the game's NintendoHard difficulty. You can start breaking the game over your knee within the ''first stage'', if you know where to look.
** 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.
** If you pay off the late fee at the video store in the first level, you can buy extra lives for only $4.95.
*** Along with raising all your stats by 10 for only $4.95 a pop. You {{cap}} at 100.
*** After maxing-out your stats, why not blow $4.95 for '''1,500 XP''' to sky-rocket your characters to Lv. 16?
** There's also the code that lets you use the [[spoiler:Power of Love sword]] outside of the final stage, which helps because of the range it gives.
** The "suicide for 25 $2 coins" code can be exploited with any [[AutoRevive snack]] (Chewing Gum in the first level is very cheap) to gain instant cash. It's even funnier considering the suicide code is a shout out to the KonamiCode.
** 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.
** [[spoiler:And the [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Medusa Heads]] in "Subspace Highway?" (right before Gigadeon).]]
* 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.
* HoYay:
** We see Wallace making out with Jimmy in the background of the first boss battle.
** [[PairTheSpares Kim Pine and Knives]]. Heck, with Kim's Assist, she summons Knives and gives her a kiss to [[IntimateHealing gain health]]. Complete with FootPopping and tongue! [[spoiler:She also chooses Knives over Scott in her specific ending and they [[RidingIntoTheSunset walk off into the sunset]]. In the ending montage everyone gets, they're also kissing.]]
* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: The Wallace [=DLC=] pack. Besides the online multi-player fans of the game were begging for, Wallace is nothing more than a [[HeadSwap re-skinned]] Stephen with rainbow effects. It's disappointing considering Ubisoft could've made Wallace a unique fighter, but they cheaped out in the end. It doesn't help that the DLC is also $5 considering what you're paying for.
* {{Narm}}: Go fight some paparazzi in the second stage with the [[VideoGame/MortalKombat blood code]] activated. You'll see...
* 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.''
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: [[SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames Averted]], save for no online play or drop in and out co-op (unless you have $7 extra dollars to buy the {{D|ownloadableContent}}LCs). The game's very good, and it also helps that it's only $10.
* SpiritualLicensee: There are some that call this game [[FanNickname another name]], ''VideoGame/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.
** Knives's father can be spotted walking the world map for [[BonusBoss an optional boss fight]]. He is [[LightningBruiser very powerful]].
** [[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 their lousy pick-up response) 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 every time 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!
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Actually, the game is great family fun, although the game warrents a Teen / 12+ rating for a reason or so.
** The way (almost) [[{{Gainaxing}} every girls' chest wobbles]] with every movement they make ([[FanDisservice including]] zombie-girl Lucy) may raise some eyebrows.
** There's also Todd Ingram giving Scott (and the other characters) [[FlippingTheBird the finger]], some people may object to Kim and Knives kissing, and [[BodyHorror Todd's]] [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]]-esque attack [[spoiler:and Gigadeon]] may scare some younger players.
** [[NightOfTheLivingMooks Zombies]] are all around the later half of Level 6 and the unlockable Survival Horror mode.

* CriticalResearchFailure: ''Possibly.'' Alot of the comments made toward Scott's relationship with Knives regarding age fall flat when one sees the age of consent in Canada (where the author is from and where the story takes place) is ''sixteen.'' Furthermore, this was a recent development, (was initially '''fourteen''' until 2006) and even then, there is special sub-clause regarding a five-year different at most when it comes to the younger teens. As such, Scott's relationwhip with Knives isn't illegal and may not be that unusual. It's not known whether O'Malley merely assumed the age of consent is 18 like in the USA or if such a thing would still be seen as weird is not known, though O'Malley doesn't have a problem of showing his characters breaking rules, with Knives being underage with drinkning (the legal age being 18 in Ablerta, Manitoba and Quebec and 19 in the other provinces) so he might've dropped the ball here.

** Done on purpose for [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld the film adaptation]], where if it was about Stephan and his band trying to make it big but Scott accidentally screws up by being strung on Ramona and they only get successful without him, just like his own ex-girlfriend.
** Scott may be the psychological and or emotional clutch for many if not all his friends. Kim Pine has self-esteem issues masked behind her mildly misanthropic nature, Stephen may act neurotic and has a knack for entering unhealthy relationships. This isn't counting for lesser-known characters like Neil, who we know little about. We see glimpses of them when they're not around Scott and they're usually not happy. In fact, many of the happy moments tend to be when they are together with Scott. Even those like Wallace Wells could be considered as Wallace seems to drink alot and occasionally seen as a hedonist. Knives has her friend, but was focused mainly on her studies and didn't know much of the outside world until meeting Scott. Even (or rather, especially) Ramona herself, as Scott proves to be the one for her and the one who ultimately gives her the confidence in moving forward. This could explain why they deal with Scott and his problems, because they really don't have any other friends (or even may not be capable of making friends with others, the exception being Wallace, who has done pretty well for himself). Scott is what holds the gang together since it was formed from everyone meeting him. Without him, the group would fall apart and would result in them being miserable lonely people.
