* BlatantLies: In the cut scene where Cortex tells the backstory of Victor and Moritz, he describes himself as having been the "most popular kid" in the academy. Mere seconds afterwards, a knife flies by from off-screen only barely missing him. Meanwhile he drags on about "how they loved me."

* ObviousBeta: Not the worst case (certainly playable), but the previously mentioned Vice-Versa Reversa Device, the fact that going through an already cleared area makes the game pretend it's your first time through, N. Tropy striking a T pose if you neglect to hit him in time when he's vulnerable, and Coco (who is frozen) damaging you if you touch her in a scene shortly after that, among many other things. And certain cutscenes lack sound effects. It's a little bit of a mess.

* DenserAndWackier: While the games were always cartoony, this was the first game in the series to ''really'' up the ante in terms of cartoonish slapstick and (for the lack of a better term) insanity. Cortex goes from being a threatening villain to TheChewToy and a ButtMonkey, the world designs get a lot more outlandish, the game puts a lot more emphasis on humorous cut scenes, and as stated, there is a ''lot'' more slapstick to be found here. The next few installments would exaggerate this trope even more, but this was the first place where it really took its foothold.

* AdvancingWallOfDoom: Let's see: a giant, rising drill, pissed-off tribes people, angry rocket-wearing penguins, a walrus chef, ''deadly acid in a library,'' and a ''swinging bus!''
* AndCallHimGeorge: [[AllThereInTheManual As stated in the game's manual,]] Nina loved animals so much that Cortex replaced her hands with [[ArtificialLimbs mechanical ones]] so that she could no longer hug critters without crushing them to death. Fittingly, the grappling targets were originally supposed to be cute little birds and lizards she'd latch onto, painfully squeezing them in the process.

* AscendedExtra: Dingodile, N. Tropy, and N. Gin, at least compared to ''Wrath of Cortex''. After having their roles massively shrunk in their first sixth-gen outing to only appearing in the opening cutscene and as stage hazards, all three are now proper bosses. Dingodile's role is comparable to his debut in ''Warped'', while N. Tropy and N. Gin, while not on the level of their respective debuts as major antagonists, still have their own plotline with Nitrus Brio.

* AbsenteeActor: The Komodo Bros are the only bosses from the Naughty Dog era completely absent. Cortex is one of the main characters, the other doctors and Dingodile have their own plotline, Papu Papu shows up in Totem Hokum, and everyone else, Oxide included, gets a non-speaking cameo at the "birthday party." Among notable non-bosses, Pura and Fake Crash are also absent.

* TheBusCameBack: With the exception of Cortex, every boss from the first game slowly declined in prominence before vanishing from ''Wrath of Cortex'' onwards. All of them reappear to some extent here:
** Papu Papu, whose last appearance was as the first boss of ''Bash'', is an antagonist in Totem Hokum.
** Ripper Roo makes his sixth-gen debut at the "birthday party" after being in every fifth-gen game save for ''Warped''.
** Koala Kong only appeared in the original and ''Bash'', but attends the party.
** Pintripe Potoroo, fourth boss of the original and ''Crash Team Racing'', is another guest.
** Nitrus Brio, who, besides ''Bash'', vanished from the games after the second one, is one of the treasure hunters and assists Nefarious Tropy in a boss fight.



** Various villains ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg also Crunch and Polar]]) turn up at Crash's "birthday party". Tawna also appears on a sign for the Moulin Cortex.

* BottomlessPit: Averted in Jungle Rumble, where the pits clearly have a bottom, it just happens to be covered with spikes. Played straight in basically every other stage, though.
