!![[Literature/TheGame The book]]:
* DesignatedHero: Neil attempts to cast himself as the OnlySaneMan in a community filled with lotharios, but he comes off as just as bad (if not worse) and his attempts to justify or explain his own behavior come off as disingenuous at best. Among other instances in the book, he knowingly gets involved in affairs with married or committed women, steals women from their boyfriends in the middle of clubs, mocks other men for their inability to score, uses every advantage he can (up to and including fake personas) to get what he wants, and generally acts like a smarmy, self-entitled man throughout the original book and its companion.
* DoNotDoThisCoolThing:
** The book concludes that the Seduction Community can become hollow over time and that being able to pick up scores of women will not solve your problems. In fact, as the climax shows, it can actually make things worse, and perhaps the only way to make your life better is to do it yourself. Yet, many PUAs cite that this is the book that started their journey.
** While ''Rules of the Game''s first volume ostensibly tries to get the reader to a point where they'll be comfortable hosting their own dinner party with people they might not even know, the book itself repeatedly has disclaimers and warnings saying that you should not pursue the techniques within unless you're absolutely confident in your abilities.
* ShaggyDogStory: One chapter in ''Rules of the Game'' has Neil [[Film/MissionImpossible Ethan Hunt]]-ing his way into his own apartment after he loses the keys to his front door, and all while a pair of women (who he's trying to seduce) are waiting below. By the time he gets in, and after performing ridiculous actions like jumping to an overhang in order to get back in, he discovers that the woman he wanted to sleep with got bored and went home, thus ruining his night.

** What doesn't help is that Blue, [[ReplacementScrappy the character replacing Derwin]], generally acts like smug JerkAss in his first appearance, insulting Derwin about being traded to another team and getting into a fight with him. He and the girl replacing Melanie go through an especially irritating case of WillTheyOrWontThey.

* DarknessEnducedAudienceApathy: Any time a character in this show finds happiness, or comes close to it, they always sabotage themselves and end up ''right'' back where they started, and there's enough DysfunctionJunction to make the viewer wonder how any of these people are still speaking to each other.
