Crack Is Cheaper: Its status makes it one of the priciest games to pick up second hand. There's a reason why most playthroughs are done on emulators. The game was a lot more expensive than the majority of other N64 games, and more than a lot of then next gen titles for the Dreamcast and the PlayStation 2. This was because of the bigger cartridge hardware the game needed, namely so all of the voice samples would fit.
Dancing Bear: Not the first M-rated game Nintendo ever published (that would be Rare's own Perfect Dark), but this was the first one that was proud of the fact, revelling in its South Park levels of crassness.
The Great Mighty Poo. Ties in with One-Scene Wonder since his appearance is brief, yet he's the most well known character in the game aside from Conker himself. He sings, in a marvelous voice, an aria (with three movements!) about how he's a giant poo. And it is awesome.
Some DA fans also consider Batula as this, as he has gained a small fanbase.
Gregg is also popular with the fans, both because of his appearance and because of his funny dialogues.
Faux Symbolism: When the game begins and Conker gets drunk, he exits the bar and walks to the right (where his adventure will begin); in the stinger when he drinks away his depression and gets drunk once again, he exits the bar and walks to the left.
Hilarious in Hindsight: The Nintendo 64 was often criticized as a "kiddy console" with Bad Fur Day being the exception that proved the rule. So when a remake was planned for the Xbox dubbed Conker: Live and Uncut, people expected to see Conker's foul mouthed antics in all their uncensored glory. Cue Executive Meddling and the game being ominously re-titled Conker: Live & Reloaded. The final product was an even more censored version of the N64 original. Some fans certainly enjoyed the irony.
Idiot Plot: The whole Panther King storyline. It took a scientist to figure out that there was a leg missing from the king's table, and even then, the only replacement for the missing leg the Professor considered theoretically viable was a squirrel.
Internet Backlash: The unveiling of Young Conker for the Microsoft Hololens was met with much ire and bile.
Jerkass Woobie: Conker may be a greedy, sociopathic alcoholic who is willing to kill to get his way, but it's hard not to feel at least a little sorry for him by the end of the game when we find out that Berri, the one person he truly loved, was murdered by Don Weaso (in which he blew the only chance he had at bringing her back) and that he was forced into being the king of the land (which he didn't want the role of), both causing him to be depressed.
Mainstream Obscurity: Many gamers recognise the Great Mighty Poo song, even though the game itself only sold about thirty thousand units.
Rated M for Money: This was Rare's intention with the game after the backlash of the original prototype.
Special Effect Failure: As astonishing as the graphics and general presentation were considered to be at the time, there is a brief moment in a cutscene where Conker escapes from the Bullfish where he is clearly running on thin air. Since it's only visible for half a second, it's unlikely it was purposely put in for Rule of Funny.
The post-boss scene in Barn Boys called Frying Tonight where you have to focus both on swimming to high ground and cutting down live wires with throwing knives lest you get electrocuted while swimming.
Barry's Mate, if only because falling means doing the whole thing all over again.
U-Bend Blues can be pretty tough as well with it's One-Hit Kill rotary fans, Rare themselves even lampshades this with the various Red Squirrel remains that are in pieces that are under the water you swim in.
The latter half of the Spooky chapter, where Conker has to find three keys in a mansion full of zombies and bats, and bring them to the front door. While carrying the key he can't jump or use his shotgun, and he loses the key if he falls or gets attacked.
It's War. As you get further into it, it's incredibly hard not to die at least once when you have to shoot off a giant lock on a door with a bazooka since the game bombards you with tons of Tediz, then even further into the chapter you have to make it back to the boat on the beach while trying to avoid laser walls, the catch? There's a time limit in which you need to get back to the boat quick or the island blows up with you on it, doesn't help you get a slow moving bazooka as your only weapon against the Tediz towards when you're reaching the end.
They Changed It, Now It Sucks/It's the Same, Now It Sucks: This is a rare case of both being valid complaints with the remake. In the changes department, a large amount of fans were unhappy about Live and Reloaded being heavily censored despite being Mature rated, cutting out content, and replacing its much loved multiplayer with a new one. As for what it kept intact, the main story had no new content added beyond its updated visuals (and certain select things changed in beginning Hangover chapter, slightly more enemies in certain chapters like more spike imps in certain chapters and added possessed dolls in the Spooky Chapter).
Visual Effects of Awesome: Regarded by many to be the best looking Nintendo 64 game out there. Featuring dynamic shadowing, coloured lighting, large areas with a long draw distance, no distance fog, detailed facial animations, lip syncing, and individually rendered fingers on some characters. The graphics in this game are so good that it could pass off as a very early Sega Dreamcast or PlayStation 2 title.
