*** That's just the tip of the iceberg - Halloween mode is ''filled to the brim'' with references. Kanpachi is dressed like [[StarWars Darth Vader]], Misery is dressed like [[{{VideoGame/Darkstalkers}} Morrigan]], Sue ''also'' gets a look based on Felicia [[spoiler:during the Undead Core fight]], the grassland jellies are a dead ringer for Metroids, the ghost-like enemies in the same area look like [[VideoGame/FinalFantasy Cactaurs]], the roaches in the Labyrinth are also dead-ringers for Xenomorphs (even the eggs), the big bugs in the Egg Corridor are dressed like [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Kamina,]] the Doctor is dressed like Dracula, and... King is dressed like [[ComicBook/VForVendetta V]], even though it makes him look [[TheComicallySerious utterly silly]]. [[spoiler:Ballos' first form is also pretty much [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Astaroth]].

* AchievementMockery: Steam version has an achievement for being killed by Toroko. As in, the harmless little [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Mimiga]] who "attacks" by running back and forth waving a stick, which only does 1 damage per hit, and you have to deliberately stand still and wait to die, if you have more than 1 HP. Even the achievement name ("Toroko Wins!") sounds surprised that it ever happened.

* WalkDontSwim: The Mister Traveler sinks like a rock in water. [[spoiler: Since he is a [[TomatoInTheMirror robot]], [[JustifiedTrope he is likely too heavy to swim.]]

* TorturedMonster: The TrueFinalBoss. [[spoiler: He's a PhysicalGod who [[PowerIncontinence lost control of his immense magic powers]] under [[TortureMakesYouEvil torture]], and had to watch himself [[PersonOfMassDestruction kill and destroy everything he loved.]] Afterwards, he was entombed inside a floating island for god-knows-how-long...

* CatchPhrase: Balrog's "Huzzah!", which got [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks changed]] to a Kool-Aid Man-style "OH YEAH!" in the NiCALIS translation, and can be either/or in the Cave Story+ version due to a mod that returns the original FanTranslation.

* FauxActionGirl: Sue. She's convinced that she's a fighter, and claims to never have lost in a fight with her brother ([[NonActionGuy which isn't saying much]]). In the first (of three) times that [[DistressedDamsel you have to rescue her]], she grossly overestimates her fighting abilities, and [[TooDumbToLive grossly underestimates]] those of a frenzied Mimiga four times her size. ''[[WhatAnIdiot In a fist fight]].'' [[{{Tsundere}} Then she gets rather pissed if you admit that you rescued her.]]
