* FridgeHorror: [[spoiler:Salem spent five years in the hands of the cartel and the next time you see him, he's a remorseless psychopath with a grudge against Rios for leaving him. What exactly did the cartel do to him in that time that made him that way?]]


* BrokenBase: ''Devil's Cartel'' in regards to the twist of [[spoiler: Salem being El Diablo, the main antagonist. While some say it makes sense and it made him more interesting as a character, others say it's completely out of character for him to turn his back on ''two'' and become a mass-murdering psychopath.]]

* CriticalDissonance: Reviews of the series tend to be a bit [[SoOkayItsAverage lukewarm]], yet the game has sold well enough to generate two sequels and has a comic book tie-in.
** Actually the 40th day had a rather large ''drop'' in sales compare to the first

** In ''The 40th Day,'' despite Salem and Rios being generally more subdued, the PennyArcade comic above becomes an ''understatement.'' The 'hug that is a little too long' takes the form of one wrapping their arms around the other and ''lifting him up,'' particularly amusing when [[BigGuyLittleGuy Salem does it to Rios.]] Another positive emote is a blatant ''ass slap,'' and the game actually keeps track of your bromance with a label visible on the pause screen.

* HoYay: Salem and Rios spend a lot of time together. To make it even more obvious, they only airdrop via tandem parachute. Sure, it may be so that one guy can shoot the Mooks on the ground, but there's got to be more to it, right? Needless to say, WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation had a lot of fun with this[[hottip:*:he later claims he was being facetious, that he can barely go 4 hours in a day without making a gay joke at ''someone's'' expense, and that the protagonists remind him more of rowdy schoolboys that gays]]. And let's not forget the minor details like body language, the way they talk to each other, and how there is absolutely no typical action-hero flirting with MissionControl. They bicker LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.
