* SeriesContinuityError: Bozo's trawler door opens with its hinges on different sides between the first game and the following games. Somewhat justified in that Bozo takes time at the beginning of the second game to refit parts of the trawler (which is presumably where the crane came from as well.

* NeverWasThisUniverse: Toyed with: Deponia is implied to be a fantasy world without any connection to our own, yet characters occasionally mention actual Earth history; this could be cultural TranslationConvention, or Deponia could be our own world far into the gloomy future.



* SpeechImpediment: Janosch has a SeanConnery-style impediment causing him to pronounce his all his "s"-es as "sh"-es, which always causes Rufus to restrain his laughter. It's actually relevant to a puzzle in the second game, where Rufus must carefully choose a set of phrases that cannot trigger this when repeated by Janosch.

* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: ''Deponia Doomsday'''s [[spoiler:[[DespairEventHorizon Solid]] [[TimePassageBeard Rufus]] and [[ActionGirl Future]] [[Determinator Goal]].]]
* FailedASpotCheck: Even though Rufus and Cletus look virtually identical, there is one glaringly obvious difference that everyone fails to notice: Cletus has a full goatee, while Rufus just has some scruffy chin hair.

Also, Rufus, Cletus, [[spoiler: and Argus]] frequently fail to [[OohMeAccentsSlipping use the correct accent]] while impersonating each other, but nobody ever notices this.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''Goodbye Deponia'' June at one point wears a very skimpy outfit while dancing provocatively, but as she's being humiliatingly forced to play the monkey for an organ grinder in order to earn a crank to get back to her boyfriend who, unbeknownst to her, is currently being consumed by some sort of PuppeteerParasite, it's hard to be titillated by the situation.

** Cletus, who was very important to the events of the first three games, serves little from the fourth game, aside from some plot reveal on why he's engaged to Goal in the first place.
