Added DiffLines:

** The FinalBoss is a weird example. At about 30% health he gets an immense boost to both damage and dodge speed, making it extremely hard to land hits on him and making his combos absolutely deadly. Unfortunately the designers seem to have forgotten that Toki's Destiny Talisman can unavoidably take 30% health off of any boss you use it on. So just as the fight gets hard, you pop your talisman and you win.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrappyMechanic: The Star Orb system. After each major plot event you gain a randomized orb. This can force you to wait half the game to finally unlock that one node that prevented you from massively buffing your stats, which can leave you underpowered for a good chunk of the game. Sure there are potions you can get to give you these points guaranteed, but they usually involve abnormal amounts of grinding minigames or just spending absurd amounts of money.


Added DiffLines:

** Also the first encounter with [[spoiler:Nadai]]. His lightning attacks are very hard to avoid and deal tremendous damage.


* ThatOneBoss: Though an awesome boss fight, in the harder difficulties Thouzer can prove to be a pain in the ass to deal with, as noted above hes immune to your hokuto shinken attacks for a good amount fo the fight and can deal a ridiculous amount of damage to you when your attacking, his fast movements and high damage output also make him a dangerous opponent to deal with, easily making him one of the toughest fights in the game.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The game's own version of the ''Yakuza'' series' SignatureSong "Receive You" is probably one of its best rendition yet. Take a listen at [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMHs6CJj1xI the preview]] yourself. And now for the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4Km-16EJRw full version.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BestBossEver: The fight with Thouzer is one of the game's most memorable battles. Since [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration your Hokuto Shinken moves do nothing to him]] for most of the fight, you're forced to be more tactical and hit him with combos at his weakest moments rather than rush him for constant onslaughts. Meanwhile, he comes at you with the ultimate evolutions of attacks you learned from Shin and Rei, and interspersed are long [[PressXToNotDie QTE]] sequences that send the two of you flying all over the various parts of the nightclub. It's a long, brutal, cinematic challenge that really lives up to the buildup.

Added DiffLines:

* DemonicSpiders: The [[KillItWithFire flamethrower-wielding bruisers]] that start popping up in the latter half of the game. They soak up plenty of damage, and their fire attacks not only instantly stun you and knock off several good chunks of health, but stick around so long that if you recover quickly, you can end up getting hit again by the same attack. To make matters worse, they're always accompanied by similarly high level enemies, so if you try to prioritize them, you're likely to get swarmed and knocked down regardless.

Added DiffLines:

** For added hilarity, that manga's Shonen Magazine run can be seen on news stands in ''Yakuza 0''.

Added DiffLines:

* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Targa]] is the second-in-command of the Army of Ruin. Using his position to slaughter the innocent, even killing helpless hostages, Targa tricks several high-ranking memebrs of Eden into helping him get revenge, only to betray and attempt to murder them. Eluding [[PlayerCharacter Kenshiro]] to reach Sphere City, Targa intends to [[NukeEm set off the nukes]] therein to raze the world in purifying hellfire to [[AGodAmI reign over the rest like a god]] and to keep Yuria to forcibly bear him a child to preserve his legacy.


* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: While regarded as inferior to the main ''Yakuza'' series, the game is still regarded by fans of both the manga, the ''Yakuza'' series as a whole, and action games in general as being pretty good despite some flaws, as well as the best ''[=FotNS=]'' game to date.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatOneSidequest: '''''Job Hunt'''''. Paying back the old woman whose vase you destroyed is a pain in the ass, since this substory happens automatically. You are required to grind ''100,000,000 IDL'' in which you need to work certain jobs such as bounties and running the cabaret club. While this can be mitigated in NewGamePlus, in which items and IDL are transferred, you would end up having to pay her again if you start a new game after that.


* BreatherBoss: Jagi comes after Souther and [[spoiler: the first fight with Nadai]], but manages to be fairly easy in comparison. His attack strings aren't too difficult to avoid, and his main gimmick, his gunshots, can be easily sidestepped. He also immediately fires his gun when getting up from a knockdown, which while I can catch you off guard the first time, is easily sidestepped afterwards, and leaves him wide open.

* AntiClimaxBoss: The final bounty hunter substory featuring The Ripper [[spoiler:(AKA Isuka)]] will be this for you if you level Ken to high degrees. He attacks you with a large knife, and you can defeat if once you beat him with specific skills.

* HilariousInHindsight: A manga called ''Manga/SuperDoctorK'' features a protagonist who bears an uncanny resemblance to Ken. Come this game, and Ken can give pressure point treatments while temping as a doctor.
