* BFS: Bunnylord uses one during his [[spoiler:DuelToTheDeath with Akemi]].



* DropTheHammer: Ronald Justice uses a regular claw hammer. His execution and special move both make violent use of it.



* FunnyBackgroundEvent: The plant in Bunnylord's office grows day-by-day (which is to say level-by-level). By day nine it collapses under its own weight and it soon starts growing up the wall. By the end of the game it's covering most of the brickwork next to the door.
* GetBackHereBoss: Unlike with Bogdan, the Bunnycopter drops you right outside Upgraydd's window. The level is about chasing him down when he makes a run for it.

* TheMafiya: Bogdan's gang.Bogdan Nabatov's mob in Vodkaville.



** Akemi also puts up more of a fight than both of the male bosses.



* NoKillLikeOverkill: The whole game, but whenever Bunnylord himself shows up this goes UpToEleven.



* OneLastSmoke: Clive's death animation has him light one last cigarette.
** Jesus' death animation has him pull out a cocktail and raise his glass to his enemy.



* StrongFamilyResemblance: The three paintings in Bogdan's office, most likely of past men in his family, look ''exactly'' like him with different haircuts. Even the moustache is identical.
* SuperheroesWearCapes: Ronald Justice wears one. It's as homemade-looking as the rest of his costume.

* PoliceBrutality: Some Averted; while some stages have the SWAT team involved.involved, the massacres that Bunnylord's mayoral campaign leave in their wake probably warrant ''more'' police intervention than the few times they show up.

Interestingly, the developers of {{Broforce}} considered ''NOT A HERO'' what their game would have become if it was English. The soundtrack is also a cocktail of music found on Bandcamp similarly to ''Videogame/HotlineMiami'' and ''Videogame/HotlineMiami2WrongNumber''.

Following the success on PC, the game saw an [[UpdatedRerelease "Super Snazzy Edition"]] on XboxOne, complete with exclusive content that allows you to play as Bunnylord and gives three exclusive missions wherein he travels through time and tries to fix things. The DLC was later ported to PC as "Me, Myself and Bunnylord."

''NOT A HERO'' is a pixellated indie platformer and cover shooter game developed by [=Roll7=] and published by Devolver Digital. You play as Steve, a former assassin turned campaign manager, set out by Bunnylord, a purple anthropomorphic rabbit from the future, to clean up the city by shooting crime in the face... and catch votes for Bunnylord's election. Taking on addictional crew members as the campaign picks up steam, Bunnylord and co shortly find themselves murdering their way through gangs and police officers alike in the pursuit of winning him the Mayorship.

NOT A HERO plays like a cover based shooter in glorious 2.25D gameplay, where fighting enemies consists of sliding between cover and shooting enemies in the face, and sliding into enemies so you can get a quick execution, though that doesn't work on everybody. You have infinite ammo, but have to collect various secondary weapons (usually a grenade), and primary weapon powerups tend to last until you reload. There are nine playable characters, each putting a spin on things and having slightly altered levels. Additionally, following the success on PC, the game saw an [[UpdatedRerelease "Super Snazzy Edition"]] on XboxOne, complete with exclusive content that allows you to play as Bunnylord and gives three exclusive missions wherein he travels through time and tries to fix things. The DLC was later ported to PC as "Me, Myself and Bunnylord."

* BritishAccents: Thoroughly explored: [[LondonGangster Steve]], [[IAmVeryBritish Clive]], and [[OopNorth Mike]] are all English, Cletus is [[UsefulNotes/{{Scotland}} Scottish]] (or he thinks he is), and Samantha is [[UsefulNotes/{{Wales}} Welsh]].

Added DiffLines:

* TeleportSpam: The knife-throwing Yukata in Sushitown and the DLC's foxheads will teleport away when the player hits them or tries to knock them down, making them a nuisance to pin down. The Yukata at least lack a melee attack, but the foxheads will punch the player if they get near.


* BilingualBonus: The slide introducing Bogdan Nabatov during one of the briefings has a line written in Russian, "ПРИВЕТ РУССКОЯЗЫЧНЫЕ", which translates to "HELLO RUSSIAN SPEAKERS!"
