YMMV: Shank
  • Fetish Retardant: Some of the female enemies look kinda hot (Mostly buxom Latinas, clad mostly in fishnets and/or pantyhose, sometimes with styled streaks), but their over-extended clenched mouths when they die... UGH...
  • Goddamned Bats: The attack dogs.
    • The small knifemen from the second game.
  • Scrappy Mechanic: in Co-Op Multiplayer, if one character moves past the other whilst the other is standing still, he (the first) will do a rolling flip over the other. During this time, the other character cannot move, since he is acting as a fulcrum. This mechanic has caused more deaths during multiplayer than any other element.
  • That One Boss: The Doctor in Shank 2. He's much much harder than the final boss.
  • That One Level: "Bombs and Bells". It wouldn't be so bad if not for the fact that Angelo takes an RPG and shoots rockets at you every 5 seconds, making the level a LOT harder than it needed to be.
