YMMV: Vault Hunters Wanted
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Wolfenstein, oh so very much. Originally he's just a NPC made for a single quest and Gaige's superior. Later on, he becomes a player character Vault Hunter, even becoming a main character in the second DLC.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Taika and Saprus, one of the most popular ones. Word of God even said that it was unintentional, but the Ship Tease has not stopped regardless.
  • Faux Symbolism: Mockingbirds represent innocence, playfulness, and vitality. Mockingbird in the actual story is a hedonistic Ax-Crazy sociopath who toys with the Vault Hunters For the Evulz. Now he could represent corruption of innocence for Irony, but Word of God confirmed this was unintentional. The conversation basically goes like this:
    [Reviewer]: '''"There is so much symbolism here if you read between the lines. Mockingbird could be the ironic innocence that a is suppose to mockingbird represent, but he becomes one of the most corrupt being in the story!"
    [Scotty "Roundhouse" Dale]: "Uh..."
    [Richard McGuiness]: "We didn’t have any symbolism for Mockingbird technically. He’s…uh…just a ruthless man-child who loves to fuck around with people because he finds it amusing."
  • Tear Jerker: Has a couple, despite the overall high-action style of the story.
    • Brick dying. While he did have a Dying Moment of Awesome by killing Dane before going, it was still hard to read.
    • Pretty much all of the character's backstories posted at the end of each story arc. They range from Suture's (disturbing and mildly sad) to Saprus's (absolutely heartrending).
    • Suture's confession of guilt to Aurai. He's clearly struggling for what he did to her, and he even admits that he has no reason to live any longer, offering the chance for Aurai to torture him just like he did to her, as well as handing her a gun to kill him. She forgives him, sending this into happy tearjerker territory.
