* BondOneLiner: The scriptwriters gave Colt lots of hammy one-liners when he kills a {{mook}} to add to the game's '80s parody atmosphere.

* BondOneLiner: The scriptwriters gave Colt lots of hammy one-liners when he kills a {{mook}} to add to the game's '80s parody atmosphere. There are even specific ones for whatever weapon Colt used.

Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateVHSQuality: The loading screens have tracking lines and a tracking adjustment bar, and are displayed in 4:3 resolution.

Added DiffLines:

* PurposelyOverpowered: Most of the game's weapons, barring the AJM-9 and the bow, are this when fully upgraded. Many of them will chew through opponents in short order. The non-upgradeable weapons are this too; the [[KillItWithFire flamethrower]] continues ''Far Cry'''s tradition of being ridiculously destructive, the [[GatlingGood Terror 4000]] is basically [[MoreDakka everything you'd expect]] from an [[{{BFG}} oversized bullethose]] and the [[EleventhHourSuperpower Killstar]] is a SwordOfPlotAdvancement needed to take down Sloan. The trope also applies to Rex himself, as he levels up automatically, levels up ridiculously quickly, can sprint and [[SuperNotDrowningSkills breathe underwater indefinitely]], and can gain ridiculous resistances to fire and explosive damage. Justified in that Rex is an eighties style ActionHero.


* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: The eponymous Blood Dragons have all the characteristics of archetypical carnivorous dinosaurs, plus [[{{Cyborg}} a few]] [[EyeBeams additional]] [[TronLines traits]].

Added DiffLines:

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Occassionally, you'll find a "Braincaged" Blood Dragon, the Braincage device of which you have to shoot the top of it to release them from the control of the Omega Force. It's not hard to lure it into a base, and watch it completely let loose on its captors.

Added DiffLines:

* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: A fully upgraded Galleria 1991, thanks to [[MoreDakka its four barrels]] and [[KillItWithFire incendiary rounds]], will chew up anything at close range, Blood Dragons included.


* GameBreakingBug: Due to what UbiSoft claims is a problem with some UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} keys, the PC version is prone to crashing every five minutes on some computers.

Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenTeleportation: During the "Turtle Killer" side quest, the turtle in the cage inexplicably appears on the platform above it to surprise you with an explosive barrel when you enter the vent to reach it.


* AndNowForSomethingCompletelyDifferent: Unlike the main game, this game takes place in a cyberpunk version of the "distant future year" of...2007. Also, the retro-futuristic weapons and robotic enemies are all brand new, though the execution animations and overall gameplay remain the same. [[spoiler: And then you start shooting zombies in a medieval castle for some reason and all bets are off!]]



* [[spoiler:DeathRay: The Killstar, which you unlock late in the game, can kill most mooks on contact and take out stronger enemies like dragons quickly. Only downside is that it's CastFromHitPoints but it takes so long to get through even one bar (which instantly recovers on its own) and by the time you get it you'll have health to spare.]]

* LostForever: Want to get all achievements for the game? Well you better make sure to headshot every enemy ''before'' beating the main campaign, because a couple enemy classes only appear in the final missions of the game, meaning that if you want to get the "One True Stopper" achievement, you have to start the whole game over.

* RatedMForManly: In that cheesy, over-the-top 80s sci-fi kind of way. Everything bleeds neon, lessening the impact, but gore is still copious.
** TestosteronePoisoning: To truly absurd levels.

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: The bow doesn't cause any big explosions, nor does it have any cool attachments you can purchase for it. However, it's the safest and most efficient weapon for killing mooks silently.


* ViewersAreMorons: Parodied in the tutorial, which was specifically built to piss people off by treating them as dumb. For example: "Press A/X to show that you can read".

** Actually explained in ''Trails of the Blood Dragon'', where it turns out [[spoiler:no one man is meant to possess it for too long. It eventually drives Rex insane and evil.]]
