- Hardtack's entering line in the debut trailer.
- The first revealed mission is about rescuing a kidnapped virtual K-pop celebrity from being married to a L.E.G.I.O.N lieutenant. Volition's love of absurdity has obviously not diminished since Saints Row.
- Kingpin's Mayhem Ability summons a boombox that stuns enemies by making them dance uncontrollably. It works on bosses. Even Golems. Imagine giant, three-story tall monsters of concrete, dark matter, and hatred grooving to 80's music.
- The music that they used to advertise that Gat is a playable character? A parody of the Flash Gordon theme song by Queen, replacing "Flash" with Gat. It must be seen to be believed.
- The "M.A.Y.H.E.M. Knows..." loading screen gags are full of gems.Oni: We get many letters asking, "Can I fight like Oni?" No, no you cannot! ... Sorry.Fortune: Treat your robotic drone like a beloved pet. It'll keep you from destroying it when it doesn't work right!Rama: Disease does not discriminate based on race, religion, or nationality. So when you meet new people, be like a virus and... no, wait. That is terrible. Can I do this over...?Hollywood: The Japanese Momonga is the cutest animal on the planet, and if you disagree with me, you can go fuck yourself!
- Hollywood's porno video, "Deep Under The Covers." NSFW, obviously.
- Braddock's former troops mention her Training from Hell is the reason they defected. The accounts start out horrible and abusive, then quickly gets more and more ridiculous (but still awful), especially the story where she forced one of them eat a honeybun out of a toilet. Why did Braddock make him do that? Because she "wanted that toilet clean enough for him to eat a honeybun out of."
- The Canned Orders over Loudspeaker in LEGION bases. Such as these gems:Just a reminder, the employee picnic will be at... Oh, we already blew up that park... Um, the employee picnic is canceled.The cafeteria is serving pizza today. A limited quantity is avail—annnnnnd it's already gone.The planetarium in Seoul is having a presentation on the size of Uranus. Aaaand I just realized what I said. Who's writing these?
- The entirety of Red Card's second personal mission, "Das Crazy." Between the sheer fun of driving around town ramming explosive-loaded vehicles and jumping out at the last second, Quartermile's screaming and begging at the constant destruction of his beauties, and Red Card's usual enthusiasm and disregard for personal safety, it's hard to find a moment where you're not having a hell of a time.
- "Operation: Coldfinger," Yeti's second personal mission, where Daisy and Braddock call in and ask him about "General Winter," the Russian defense project that led to him being a "cold warrior." He mentions that the project has had few volunteers due to certain complications, and Braddock and Daisy proceed to discuss how he might get around that. Talking about insulation against the cold has never been funnier.
- The "Team Operations".
- The "Franchise Force" (Hollywood, Fortune, and Hardtack) bust up a LEGION base while showing off on a Livestream (even though LEGION bases cut off reception from MAYHEM, with Fortune wondering how they can show the livestream while Hollywood assures her that she doesn't need to worry about that). Then they find a copy of "Deep Under The Covers", and while Hollywood desperately tries to tell Fortune and Hardtack not to play it, they play the porno on the livestream, outing Hollywood as a former porn star (and getting an angry call from MAYHEM's "Carol in HR").
- The "Bombshells" (Rama, Joule and Red Card) storm a base, and get harassed by a LEGION lieutenant who peppers them with football related puns. Although Red Card thinks the LEGION lieutenant is suspiciously familiar, he completely misses the football references, even though Rama and Joule can point them out. It's revealed that the LEGION commander is a manager of Red Card's sports team, and the Bombshells prepare to do a Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique on him - only to get sidetracked when Red Card angrily asks why the LEGION commander turned on his sports team just when they're about to win the championship, and their bickering allows the LEGION commander to take a Cyanide Pill before they can question him about anything of substance. Red Card shrugs this off, and asks his teammates if they want to dine out together.
- The "Carnage a Trois" (Daisy, Braddock and Yeti) pulverize a base using Russia's "General Winter" weapons to flash-freeze civilians, with the LEGION robot in charge claiming the secret to his evil plan... is to pretend the weapons are ice cream dispensers, and to trick people into being frozen by trying to operate the machines. The Agents quickly point out how this plan wouldn't actually work with Daisy of all people pointing out the weapons still don't look like ice cream dispensers to her, and Yeti points out that since everybody is on the internet, everybody would tell everybody the results of the first attacks, meaning the weapons would be useless (with the LEGION robot nervously trying not to admit he didn't think out the problems with his plan). Also during this mission, the LEGION robot makes a crack at Rap Rock, causing Yeti to go on a rant of how Rap Rock is the "best of both worlds", while Daisy claims she thinks Rap and Rock mixed together goes about as well as gin and scotch (in Daisy's case, like rhino's piss), while Braddock doesn't like Rap OR Rock, but Smooth Jazz, and at the end of the mission they try to play Go Fish in the very last room, with Yeti unable to understand the rules, and Braddock eventually storming off in a huff, claiming the LEGION corpses were starting to smell anyway.
- The "Firing Squad" (Scheherazade, Oni and Kingpin) tell the story of trying to take a weapon from a LEGION base "Rashomon"-Style, with Oni hyping up the battles against a Quirky Miniboss Squad ripped right out of a cheesy kung fu movie (while still sounding grimly serious about it), Kingpin tells Blatant Lies that clearly don't match up with Oni's recollection of events (such as saying the team fought 10 robots... only to decrease the number to 2 when Persephone presses him on the matter, causing 8 of the robots in the room to disappear in a puff of smoke as he says this), and Persephone tries to force Scheherazade to cut the bull, and tell her the truth, with Scheherazade claiming they snuck into the LEGION base with absolute stealth (while in the game, Oni says they tripped the base's silent alarm the second they walked in the door, prompting Kingpin to ask HOW Oni could know they tripped the alarm if it's silent, with Oni replying he knows everything) and finally says she got the weapon Oni and Kingpin claimed wasn't there: when Scheherazade provides an empty box, Persephone asks if this is just a joke, only for Scheherazade to reveal she has the "weapon", just kept in the safety of her personal quarters with no one else's knowledge, claiming she had a "personal attachment" to it. Persephone lets Scheherazade off with a warning not to endanger her trust again, and Scheherazade returns to her quarters, where Kingpin and Oni are playing with the "weapon" - a (seemingly) ordinary chinchilla that just happened to be in the LEGION base. Scheherazade tells them to keep the chinchilla a secret, because "Persephone is a complete despot about her 'No Pets Policy'."
- Daisy's introductory mission, which starts with her waking up, badly hung-over in a cargo container, then has her retracing her steps to figure out what she'd done. This involves: attacking a sushi restaurant's squid mascot in an attempt to force it to give her a deep-dish pepperoni, join an illegal undeground robot fight club, and attempt to steal a priceless work of art for someone which to her relief was actually a LEGION attempt to kill her.
- The public announcements at the Planetarium which go on and on with facts about Uranus. ("In ancient times, people worshiped Uranus." "Scientists have accurately measured the size of Uranus.") In one mission, Friday eventually blows her stack and wants to know why they can't talk about any other planet.
