** IGN cited ''Plumbers Don't Wear Ties'' as the prime example of why the 3DO failed: By convincing the public that the system had low-budget, poor quality games that did not justify the console's $700 price tag.
** Such was also the case for "Kirin Entertainment".
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Unsurprisingly, this has never seen release anywhere beyond the 3DO (such as the Sega CD) and the 3DO itself was under most gamers' radars at the time, which didn't help (though having mainstream publicity probably would have only driven this game's reputation down even further).

* TheyJustDidntCare: If Jeanne Basone is to be believed, most of the cast were only involved as personal favors to the creator, the game had a shoestring budget at best, and most of the workers at Kirin didn't even think that the game was going to be ''released''.

* ThrowItIn: In the 'moving' climax, the actor flubs his line, and the crew falls about laughing (which is in itself sad; it wasn't even funny). They don't bother editing this out at all.
