** 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.

** In the first game, you can find a platypus plush that looks very similar to [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb Perry the Platypus]].

Two time-traveling natives of the planet, arriving from the future where Deponians and Utopians made first contact to see the past for themselves, end up accidentally upsetting the timeline and serve as [[OutsideContextVillain Outside-Context Villains]] of the story in their attempts to restore the original course of events.]]

** [[spoiler:In ''Deponia Doomsday'', Goal attempts this in trying to prevent Rufus's death from his HeroicSacrifice.

** [[spoiler:The Utopians in ''Deponia Doomsday'' are a two-man OutsideContextVillain team whose appearance leads to [=McChronicle=]'s otherwise successful time machine project failing, and their resolve to leave absolutely ''everything'' as it was ensures the failure of Goal's quest just on the off chance Rufus might do something that'd lead to Utopia's destruction in the future; the destructive future they're fighting is largely the result of their own meddling.]]

* [[spoiler:OutsideContextVillain]]: [[spoiler:The Utopians, [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic elephants]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin native to the planet Utopia]], kickstart the plot of ''Deponia Doomsday'' by coming from the future, where they had already made contact with Deponians, to visit Deponia's past and take in the historic atmosphere. However, their visit [[SpannerInTheWorks accidentally derails the timeline]] and leads to Rufus stealing their time machine, leading to the events of the game, which prompts them to adopt a KnightTemplar mentality of [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong preserving the timeline at all costs]], which include derailing Goal's efforts to save Rufus, and in the end lead to successful timeline restoration as they and alternate Goal and Rufus(es) end up stranded in the Stone Age.]]

** In ''Deponia Doomsday'', [[spoiler:the only narrator song is a very tetchy response to his girlfriend, who's having second thoughts about breaking up, while the narrator is bitterly convinced that there's no going back]]. The apparent target of the song is also [[BrokenBase the players]], specifically those who were unhappy with [[BaseBreaker the ending of the previous game]].

** At one point in ''Goodbye Deponia'', Rufus is groping around in the dark and finds something "dry, long, and thin" which he jokingly identifies as "...the plot of [[VideoGame/SecretFiles "Secret Files: Tunguska"]]! Or a low-hanging branch. Either one."
