* DemonicSpiders: The Kamakazes, unmanned walking bombs that will charge into you and explode, causing damage and giving any other nearby Kamakazes an opportunity to continuously pounce on Metal Wolf.


** The fight against Richard Hawk in Las Vegas. Not only it's essentially a MirrorBoss but God forbid you enter the level without the RH tier weapons. Also during his last segment he will use Burst Attack, rendering him invulnerable for a time and also his beam attack can insta-kill you with stunlock. Since there are [[BossOnlyLevel no other enemies]] to fill your Burst Attack, you must find the Burst Attack powerup in the casino and then use it at the same time to counter his Burst Attack.

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmAaA0lemv8&t=0s main theme itself]] also qualifies, even if it's unusually melancholic-sounding for a game like that.


* CompleteMonster: [[BigBad Vice President Richard Hawk]] ousts the heroic [[ActionPolitician Michael Wilson]] from office, proceeding to turn the US into a military dictatorship under his control. Using prisoners of war as [[HumanShield shields]], Richard proceeds to order them gunned down while also attacking American cities in an attempt to kill Michael, now piloting the mechanical armor known as Metal Wolf. Richard reinstitutes slave labor, selling people in Miami into white slavery, and attempts to frame Metal Wolf by using [[DeadlyGas poison gas]] to wipe out Chicago before also using a giant mech to try to wipe out New York. When Michael defeats him, Richard attempts to flee to space, where he has prepared the Ultimate Weapon to [[EarthShatteringKaboom wipe out all of the United States and shatter the Earth itself]] out of spite at his loss.

** FridgeBrilliance: Would you really put it past Richard Hawk? He was perfectly willing to ''nuke America from orbit and destroy the entire Earth alongside it'', after all!

** like the game flat-out refuse to run for the PC version and gets stuck in a black screen. The problem is how the PC version doesn't support fullscreen for some resolutions, and it unfortunately defaults to exclusive fullscreen on first run. Workaround exist by setting to 640x480 in compatibility mode, and then go to option to set to windowed, and then exit and disable the compatibility mode, and then borderless fullscreen with native resolution can be set. ** As for the game itself, it is sadly missing many shading and visual effects in several key areas, not only making most of the game brighter than usual, but also drab and lifeless compared to the original Xbox version, and there are also audio issues such as sound effects desyncing or they are straight up missing/broken with voice-overs skipping due to uneven frame-rate (it was meant to be capped to 30).

** As if Richard's atrocities in the ZeroPercentApprovalRating entry on the main page weren't enough, he enacts a law that calls for the immediate public execution (by guillotine) of any Metal Wolf sympathizers who don't confess by a previously set timeline. Along with their family members within four separations. And their old classmates. AND their friends and coworkers.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: This game has an enormous fanbase among Americans. By far the single most offensive thing about the game to most Americans who have heard of it is the fact that it was a [[NoExportForYou Japan-only release]]. Luckily, that's been {{subverted}} as of 2018, which saw an announcement of the ''XD'' port getting an international release (delayed to 2019).

* ValuesResonance: Quote Gamespot,
** "Playing through the game now, however, it's hard not to draw parallels with the events and storytelling tropes of the game and today's political climate. With homegrown terrorism, fascism, and propaganda on the rise, it can make some of the events of the game feel eerie--even when its story is totally absurd. Between levels, you're treated to breaking news segments from major news channels where your battles against the Hawk's militia are intentionally misconstrued and repackaged as propaganda. Essentially, fake news."
