YMMV / Gravity Rush

  • Angst? What Angst?: Kat isn't too bothered by her loss of memory, instead using her energy to help the city's people.
  • Boss In Mooks Clothing: The Batouyue type Nevi. They're very large, mobile, and have multi-shot long-range homing attacks. Plus they not only have multiple cores, but they are situated on their spines between the wings, making them almost impossible to hit from any direction other than directly above.
  • Demonic Spiders: The Malloid variety of Nevi, which looks like a fish in the air. Their attack is to continuously charge right at you, and it's very damaging.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Raven. Subverted later on, though she's still sexy nonetheless.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Anyone who has played Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will probably laugh when they realize one of the chapters of the game is named Thick Skin.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: The Gravity Slide, which is activated by the touch screen and controlled by moving the Vita around. It's hard to control with few places where it can be used effectively. Thankfully, the remastered version puts it on button and analog stick inputs, making it far easier to use.
  • That One Level:
    • Episode 10. Your meter use is severely gimped after Dusty accidentally ingests anti-Nevi poison, causing your meter to run out extremely quickly. You must fight several enemies that are in awkward, gravity-shifting-required locations during the boss battle.
    • Both missions in the Special Services Pack. In the first mission, you must fly around the map escorting civilians to a safe point as you're being attacked by Nevi. Don't bother killing the Nevi—they immediately respawn. The first half of this actually isn't so bad since there's a relatively Nevi-free path available and the civilians aren't right next to active Nevi when you pick them up. In the second half, you're mobbed by Nevi that are right next to the civilians, and one hit will likely cause you to drop your payload into the abyss—that is, if you're not simply killed. The second mission? More of the same.
