* AntiFrutrationFeatures: Songs will still activate, even if you make a mistake while singing them, as long as you sing the relevant notes in their proper order. You can hit up to two "extra" notes in between each proper note without aborting the song.

Following the success of the "Humble Indie Bundle" charity drive, Bit-Blot, the developers of the game, have released its source code (info [[http://blog.wolfire.com/2010/06/Aquaria-goes-open-source here]]). Keep in mind that the game's content will remain closed, so you will still have to buy the game in order to play anything more than the demo version.

It might only work if the two are in close proximity, though -- [[spoiler: Li puts his old diving helmet back on if Naija decides to leave him behind somewhere]].

* [[spoiler: EldritchAbomination]]: [[spoiler:Most of the gods, but the [[GodIsEvil Creator]] [[BigBad himself]] is the biggest example. His first form during the [[FinalBoss last battle]] is tame enough, being a giant statue, but he becomes more and more strange as the battle progresses. See SequentialBoss below for more info on his forms. An interesting case in that [[WasOnceAMan he started out as a human boy]].]]



* EverythingTryingToKillYou: Pretty much. You can run across the odd benign creature, but by and large, this is a fish-eat-fish world.



* ItemCrafting: Naija can cook a ''multinational restaurant's menu's'' worth of food items at any time on the pause screen, as well as consume them there before resuming gameplay (see HyperactiveMetabolism, above, and on the actual page). [[GlassCannon Thank]] [[NintendoHard heavens.]] Unlike your forms and other songs, recipes are ''not'' locked before discovery. This makes replays a lot easier, as some of the recipes are too simple ''not'' to remember, even without cheat sheets.

* JustAddWater: Many of the All recipes in the game have two or three ingredients, though there are quite simplified compared to their ingredients. An unusual example is that you can combine two bones to make some non-useful intermediate stages. Incorrect combinations produce a near-useless Sea Loaf that heals you.or similar, but even these can be used in other recipes.



* OpeningTheSandbox: Completing the first temple allows Naija to fix a BrokenBridge with her newfound powers, unlocking the rest of the game. This sets the pattern, as ''every'' form enables use of a new set of doorways or passages.



* WallJump: Though not as useful underwater, it's still there. Granted, it can help you speed along if you wish, is used in Energy Form's fiercest charge blast, and allows you to hold still and open a song plant within a current by sticking you to the wall in Beast Form first. ''Out'' of the water, however, it works much the same way as normal, and is in fact (sorta) the ''only'' way you can actually move.

** As such, it averts SequenceBreaking, to the surprise of some people more used to VideoGame/{{Metroid}}, where wall jumping gave access to certain items before they were conventionally available; in Aquaria's above-water segments, wall jumping is your sole form of locomotion, and very much part of the plan. There are a few special items which can ''only'' be reached by wall-jumping, but still part of the plan.
