  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The Psychic Midget. He comes outta nowhere, and doesn't really fit in with the rest of the game. His dialogue seems to lampshade this.
  • Breather Boss:
    • Dr. Ion is noticeably simpler than the rest of the bosses in the game, telegraphing every attack and failing to block. In-Universe, everyone notes that Dr. Ion is worthless before and after the fight, and he really just serves as an easier boss before Azel at the end of Stage 4.
    • The Mad Midget Five. They're a lot easier than the other bosses in the game, even ones before them. Interestingly, this may have been done on purpose; they scream in a comical fashion when hit with a strong enough attack, they all have high-pitched voices, and their unique stun attack lodges them in the floor (which is really entertaining). In short, they're really fun to beat on. Also, they show up again later in the game, between some actually challenging bosses.
  • Breather Level: Level Six.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Pretty much all of it. Masafumi Takada knows his business.
  • Evil Is Cool: Azel.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Azel and Shannon. The latter... Just look at the flyer she leaves for Gene while he's out:

  "Join us for Masochysteria! Take part in the world's most famous S&M show! Beginners more than welcome!"

  • Excuse Plot: Even the characters joke about how ridiculous it is.
  • Good Bad Bug: It's possible to get the Great Sensei into a stun loop.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Chie's "Galactic Punt" to "Dragon Kick (your ass into the Milky Way)".
  • It's Hard, So It Sucks: IGN's infamous review of this game.
  • Memetic Mutation: The God Hand comic, quoted above, created by an imageboard regular based on his own experiences with the game, which spawned numerous imitations based on other games. God Hand itself also qualifies to an extent.
    • Also, a quote from a review: "It's a game about punching people"
    • There are a few photoshops of characters from other games pulling out a God Reel.
  • Needs More Love: The series has pretty much been ignored by Capcom (probably because it bombed commercially) and they have yet to add Gene as a fighter in a Capcom vs. Whatever game (While other Clover characters Viewtiful Joe and Amaterasu have).
  • Moral Event Horizon: For Azel, killing his entire clan for the Left God Hand and using his fiancé, Olivia, as a sacrifice for resurrecting Angra.
  • Perfect Play AI: Averted. Though it comes pretty damn-near close on Lv Die.
  • Scrappy Level: Level Five makes many players want to cry. Get past that and Level Seven's "The Flying Pyramid" will make you wish for Level Five again.
  • That One Boss: All of them can be, but Demon Elvis and the Mad Midget Five are especially painful.
    • And the Great Sensei. Even in this game, this fight is typically a HUGE speed-bump.
  • What an Idiot!: Gene's first encounter with Bruce; after hitting the big lug several times with no effect, Bruce responds with this:

 Bruce: What do the five fingers... uhhh... say... to the face?

Gene's reaction? Look confused.

Bruce: SLAP!!! And then Gene gets his arm cut off.

  • Woolseyism: As ridiculous as the ending theme is, it is very accurate to the original Japanese.
