Naughty Bear is an action game for the Xbox 360 and PS3 about Naughty Bear, a teddy bear who is very naughty. There's a birthday party on the Island of Perfection, and Naughty is not invited. Upset by this, he decides to exact revenge on everyone on the island by scaring the fluff out of them and/or killing them.

This game features many ways to dispatch your fellow teddy brethren. To earn "Naughty points," you perform various naughty actions, such as sabotaging powerboxes, destroying the environment, and scaring the locals. The objective of the game is to cause as much chaos as possible, increasing the score multiplier.

The game was later given a sequel titled "Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise", taking place on an island resort but still having the same basic premise.

This video game provides examples of:

  • Aliens Are Bastards
  • All of the Other Reindeer: Naughty is treated as an outcast by everyone, even though he wants to be friends.
  • Alpha Bastard: Daddles is the most popular bear on the island, and is one hell of a bastard.
  • Asshole Victim: The other bears are cruel, so you can't feel bad for them when you horribly murder them.
  • An Axe to Grind: A Hatchet and a Large Fire Axe. Implied to be Naughty's Weapon of Choice, as he slept with a toy axe when he was younger.
  • Naughty Bears Are Bad News
  • BFS: The Behemothic Sword.
  • Big Bad: Daddles kicks off the events of the plot by humiliating Naughty Bear one time too many...
  • Big Brother Is Watching: One level starts with Naughty discovering the Victim of the Week is strapping cameras to the heads of birds in order to spy on him. Even the name of the level, Big Ted Is Watching, sort of tips one off.
  • Bloodless Carnage: Justified as none of the bears bleed (as they don't have blood) but they leak fluff instead.
  • Bullying a Dragon: The other teddies tend to provoke Naughty at the start of each episode, even if they were killed in the previous one.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Naughty in spades. He'll happily kick other bears between the legs, kill a trapped bear while they're defenseless, sabotage phones, grills, cars, boats and wait for some poor schmuck to repair it before attacking...
  • Cool Guns: Magnum, Uzi
    • BFG: Naughty Bear gets his hands on an RPG-7. And he uses it in the ending cinematic as revenge.
    • Boom, Headshot: The pistol execution is this.
    • Hollywood Silencer: Silenced pistols make nothing louder than a "thwip".
  • Crapsaccharine World: It looks cute in the beginning but don't think for a minute that this game doesn't have a dark underbelly. Naughty himself is hardly responsible for some of the shenanigans that take place, which include the rising of the 'un-ted', an alien invasion, and the Vampiricorn's arrival.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Examples of offing the bears include stuffing them in a fridge, tossing them into a cake mixer, and slamming their face into a power box.
  • Death Trap: The bear traps and mines can become this if used properly.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Naughty goes on a killing spree because he wasn't invited to a birthday party and two other bears laughed at the gift he had made.
    • According to the website, Naughty's history of rejection goes back farther than that. He acted selfishly even before the events of the game, which explains why the other bears don't really like Naughty.
    • The Wiki implies that Naughty was simply a naughty, prank-pulling bear who was nonetheless harmless. And then the other bears started treating him like crap.
  • Driven to Suicide: Bears that are driven insane enough will kill themselves on the spot. You get A LOT of points for this. Bonus if you drive them to suicide in front of witnesses!
  • Evil Brit: Lampshaded in the loading texts where it says "Naughty doesn't have any voices in his head, except for that one english guy that pushes him to kill."
  • Gory Discretion Shot: sometimes accidentally done by the game when the camera switches to a different angle during an Ultra Kill and hides the violence behind a wall or a tree.
  • Groin Attack: Naughty Bear can kick other bears in the crotch... or whack them there with an axe during a kill animation.
  • Harmless Electrocution: Subverted; all the bears can be electrocuted by tampering with an item [Arcade machine, Conveyor belt computer, DJ booth, Power supply, TV] and shoving them into the exposed wires while they attempt to repair it.
  • Harmless Freezing: Also subverted. Live bear goes in, dead bear inside an ice cube comes out. And the ice slowly melts, leaving only the corpse...
  • Hearing Voices: It's implied the narrator is only in Naughty's head.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: You can step on your own bear traps and land mine if you're not careful.
  • Improbable Weapon User
  • Just for Pun: Nearly every single kill phrase, eg. "Incredi-belly knifeage", "Car-Nage", etc.
  • Lemony Narrator: The narrator is a parody of those Saturday morning cartoons. He's also the one that encourages Naughty Bear to go on a rampage.
  • Kill 'em All: "Total Defluffication! You defluffed them all."
  • Knife Nut: You can get one in the Slasher costume.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: A Ninjato to be precise.
  • Machete Mayhem: One of the more Common weapons
  • No Export for You: If you live in Asia and want to play this on your Xbox 360, you are out of luck. To add insult to injury, both the North American and European releases of the game are actually cross-compatible with each other... just not with Asian region consoles.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: One of the ways to defluff your victims. It doesn't give as much points, however.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: The Vampiricorn. It looks like a cross between a zombie and a vampire, and seems to be wearing a Ludwig-inspired... wig.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: The Un-Ted.
  • Reformed, but Rejected: Naughty was always a troublemaker, but when he tries to do something nice, the other bears simply laugh at him.
  • Revenge SVP: The entire premise of the first episode.
  • Serial Killer: Naughty's M.O. is essentially to act like a horror film villain.
  • Shout-Out: Loads, from the Ninja boss Master Miyagi to the tons of B.E.A.R.S. that have all their names taken from Police Academy like ELITE Mahoney.
  • Spiritual Successor: This game can be considered the spiritual successor to Manhunt.
  • Sugar Apocalypse
  • Taking Over the Town: A one-teddy version; some players attempt this by sinking the boat, disabling the car and phones and setting up traps at the dock that the police use. This is usually successful at keeping the others from escaping.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: The bears killed in an episode simply come back to life in the next episode.
  • Too Dumb to Live: OK, Daddles. You go out of your way to humiliate, embarrass, and do other nasty and vicious things to Naughty Bear despite the painfully obvious fact that he has a breaking point. I think it's safe to say that you get what you deserve when he finally snaps.
    • Same goes to the other bears, who be complete dicks to him for little reason. Makes what happens next slightly understandable.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: After Naughty Bear saves the island from the aliens, they decide to deceive him by throwing a party for him, then throw a cake in his face and laugh at him.
  • Vehicular Sabotage: Can be done either on his own or with the aid of a corpse from a bear who tried to escape.
  • Villain Protagonist: It doesn't help that the other bears are trying to kill Naughty, spy on him, humiliate him, or destroy his hut in the glades.
  • Your Head Asplode: Unarmed bears that are Driven to Suicide will make their own heads inflate and burst.

New to Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise

  • Broomstick Quarterstaff
  • Darker and Edgier: Subverted somewhat. While it's still just as violent as the first game, it doesn't even try to mask itself as a happy, stuffed animal quest at the beginning of the game. Unless a title screen with creepy music, a green bear with a hole in his chest and a missing arm, and an interactive double-barrel shotgun with the phrase "A good bear is a dead bear" is a happy game in your eyes.
  • Death by Irony: The target will usually be killed like this.
  • Enemy to All Living Things: And it's the best way to achieve maximum points.
  • Grievous Bottley Harm: With 'intact wine bottle' and 'broken wine bottle' versions.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Level 13 has you impale Silky on his own statue.
  • Improvised Weapon: New ones: a lawn mower, a hotel bell, a saguaro, a dumpster, a bass amplifier, etc.
  • Fluff-Eating Plant: Level two. You get to feed the Victim of the Week to said plant, and it isn't pretty.
  • Mugged for Disguise: Fatally so. Naughty drags his victim into the woods, squeezes their neck so hard their head pops off, and dons their outfit as a disguise. He can even wear the faces of some bears, Hannibal Lecter style.
  • Rewarding Vandalism / Die, Chair! Die!: Literally in both counts; break furniture, boxes, trash bins, barrels, amplifiers, Fluff-frogs, etc.; literally if you destroy just about anything. And you get a LOT of coins for it.
  • Threatening Shark: Called ‘Sand Dolphins’; will eat your victims if they’re thrown in the water.
  • Underside Ride: How Naughty gets to the Island, taped to the bottom of the bus. He throws the camera quite the Psychotic Smirk, too.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Naughty Bear himself. He wouldn't have gone through with his rampage had the other bears been nicer to him and invited him on their vacation.
