* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Jo-Beth Casey and to a lesser extent Venus Starr, to the extent that some don't know that the former is from the ''Timesplitters'' series.
* CatharsisFactor: Arcade: Amateur League: Nightstick: Dam Cold Out Here. First, fire your flare gun at a snowman. Then listen to the screaming. Repeat.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Future Perfect's singleplayer mode is rife with them! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tekc9dtiCGE&feature=related Here are some highlights of the funnier scenes.]]
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=844y7LN09IU "Spaceport"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoOl8LjxMFs&feature=related "Scotland The Brave"]] in Future Perfect, "Notre Dame" in [=TS2=]. Dozens more.
** For the Virtual tileset in [=TSFP=] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=249htYim6FY they just ripped out the best part of the TS2 credits theme]].
** The Victorian multiplayer tileset music in [=TS2=].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aytbwCENa04 "Chinese"]] in the original.
** While few people show any love for the Neo-Tokyo level, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zAPk9bGVo4 the music for it fits the atmosphere very well]].
* ContestedSequel: Timesplitters: Future Perfect is often considered inferior to the second game either due to abandoning it's Goldeneye roots and/or being very glitchy.
* EarWorm:
** A '''large''' portion of the soundtrack is this. Considering a lot of it is techno blended with other musical styles, this is inevitable really.
** The music from the [[VideoGame/{{Snake}} Anaconda]] minigame in Timesplitters 2
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** There's a good reason Captain Ash and Harry Tipper have appeared in all three games.
** Judging multiplayer characters, we have strange, funny characters like Duckman Drake, Robofish and the Impersonator.
** Despite her having a minor role in ''Future Perfect'', Angel Forge has a modest fan-following.
** [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys The Monkeys]]. Enough said.
* {{Epileptic Trees}}: Anya looks a ''lot'' like Jo-Beth Casey. Could the teenage girl she constantly rolls her eyes at actually be her 15x-great-grandmother?
* MostAnnoyingSound: The Space Flies from [=TS2=], with their incessant buzzing that grows to impossibly loud volume as you get closer to them.
* ThatOneBoss: The first battle with [[spoiler: Jacob Crow]] in the tenth level of Future Perfect.
** The problem mostly comes from getting the three most obvious weapons and then not knowing where the fourth weak point is. They're two side-mounted missile launchers, but they're not immediately visible.
* ThatOneLevel: Mansion in ''[=TimeSplitters=]''. [[StalkingMission Neo-Tokyo]] in ''[=TimeSplitters=] 2''.
** Mansion in ''[=TimeSplitters=]: Future Perfect'' was scrappy for three reasons. One, Jo-Beth Casey, who sometimes attacks you due to a glitch. Second, [[ThatOneBoss Deer Haunter]]. Third, the last boss of the level. You know which trope he goes under.
** The Hooded Man in Future Perfect. You have to protect [[spoiler: your past self from Time Assassins and [=TimeSplitters=] until he gets to the base]] it doesn't get bad until the Splitters show up though.
** Something to Crow About. Powerful enemies who can fill you full of plasma in a few seconds, shielded enemies you have to switch quickly to the Electrotool and back to defeat, flying mechs not unlike the "boss" of U-Genius U-Genix, annoying rolling robots, the stage is ''long'', there are two bosses, and the latter of those two bosses is ThatOneBoss.
** The Robot Factory in Timesplitters 2 is one. With [[EverythingTryingToKillYou dozens of robots often teleporting in on you]], [[EliteMook stronger robots]] that take a lot of hits to go down and wield the deadliest weapons in the level, turrets and floating mines waiting around corners, and your default weapon's laser being able to bounce back and hit you, this level is frustrating to beat [[NintendoHard even on Easy difficulty]]. Good luck getting the ''Rad Racer'' cartridge on Hard.....
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The first game isn't regarded well nowadays due to it's barebones presentation and lacking the features introduced in the sequels.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Play a Team Death Match as a robot with nothing but flamethrowers and make sure none of your enemies are robots. Just do it.
** You've definitely played on the Siberia stage in ''FP'' just to block an AI team's base with the jeep.
