Added DiffLines:

* NoGearLevel: Perplexingly averted in level 17, where Lo Wang gets captured. You start the game locked in a cell but still have ''all your weapons and gear'', making you wonder how the bad guys got you in your cell without getting killed in the first place.


* NukeEm: The thivrd alternate fire for the missile launcher is a ''fucking NUKE!'' It deals massive amounts of damage and has an extremely large blast radius, and finishes off with fallout that sticks around for half a minute and hurts anyone near the epicenter.

* NukeEm: The thivrd third alternate fire for the missile launcher is a ''fucking NUKE!'' It deals massive amounts of damage and has an extremely large blast radius, and finishes off with fallout that sticks around for half a minute and hurts anyone near the epicenter.

Added DiffLines:

* NoFairCheating: Cheat codes are disabled in the "No Pain, No Gain" difficulty. Trying to imput a cheat code will not work, unless the player starts a new game in a lower difficulty.

Added DiffLines:

*** When picking up a [[{{BFG}} bigger, new weapon]], Lo Wang might say "Cowabunga".


** In the beginning of level 12 ("Bath House"), Lo Wang shouts: "Hory cow! Look like Franchise/DukeNukem! Hahaha!"

Added DiffLines:

** When picking up a Railgun, Lo Wang may exclaim: "Time to get ''erased''!" as a reference to Film/{{Eraser}}, which popularized said weapon in media.

Added DiffLines:

* BondOneLiner: Lo Wang has a 10th Dan Black Belt in the discipline.
-->'''Lo Wang''': "You move like a pregnant yak!"


* UnbrokenFirstPersonPerspective: Aside from the opening cutscene.

** The Railgun. It doesn't deal as much damage as you'd expect it to, and it seems to constantly miss the enemy, even with auto-aim on. Without auto-aim, there's still the split-second delay between pulling the trigger and the shot you have to contend with.

Added DiffLines:

* EasyModeMockery: "Skyline", the last level of ''Wanton Destruction'', forces you to play at the harder two of ''four'' difficulties to fight the final boss. This may be intentional but this could also be a bug as seen below.


Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithFire: The very tough Guardians can attack Lo Wang with fireballs they shoot from their eyes and have a chance to drop their heads after they die that let's Wang do the same to his foes. See "OffWithHisHead" on it's strengths and weaknesses.


* OffWithHisHead: Bizarrely enough, it's a weapon. And a very powerful at that with 3 fire modes (a rapid-fire stream of fire balls, [[OrbitingParticleShield a floating fireball shield]], or fireballs that create pillars of fire) at the cost of only having a small ammo counter of 80 shots, its absurdly fast use of ammo, and the fact it's a random drop from killing the very durable Guardians.
