* BigInJapan: The games have apparently done ''very'' well in the Japanese market, enough to prompt a CompilationRerelease for PS Vita and PS4. It [[ColbertBump probably helps]] that Creator/{{Suda 51}} is [[OneOfUs a fan.]]
* FanNickname: Due to the game's use of a NamelessNarrative, fans have come up with a number of nicknames for the main characters for the sake of convenience. [[AscendedFanon Some of them were eventually adopted by the developers as semi-official nicknames.]]
** The main protagonist is known as ''[[IconicOutfit Jacket]]''. This nickname is popular enough that it is what the character is known as in his role as a GuestFighter on ''Videogame/{{PAYDAY 2}}''.
** The man in a motorcycle helmet is known as ''[[BadassBiker Biker]]''.
** The DamselInDistress is known as ''[[HookerWithAHeartOfGold The Hooker]]'', or ''[[ImpliedLoveInterest Girlfriend]]''.
** The hairy, bespectacled clerk is known as ''[[WildHair Beard]]'', or ''[[MuggleBestFriend The Friend]]''.
** All the characters who wear masks, while officially unnamed, are generally referred to by the name of their corresponding mask, such as ''Richard the Rooster'', ''Don Juan the Horse'', ''Rasmus the Owl'', and ''Richter the Rat''.
* LyingCreator: [[spoiler:Dennation repeatedly went on record stating that ''Wrong Number'' would be the last entry in the series. Despite this, a secret [[TheStinger stinger]] after the second set of credits hints at a ''"Hotline Miami 3".'']]
* NoExportForYou: The second game was [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications refused classification]] in Australia due to an implied rape scene, thus making it illegal to sell there. The developers then turned around and told Australians to [[DigitalPiracyIsOkay pirate their game]].
