** Also in the hotel of "Goodbye Deponia", Rufus can crawl into a closet nd cry behind the closed door about his fears to fail saving Deponia from doom. ftwerwards, he comes out and tells himself with greatest confidence: "I'm the best!" - thereby very much mirroring the behaviour of J. D. in an early episode of [[Series/Scrubs]].

* SexyWhateverOutfit: Spunky Goal sports a sexy platypus outfit when battling in the platypus bakara arena. Rufus' corresponding outfit is less "sexy" and more "absurd theme park MascotFighter".

** The intro for Deponia Doomsday has some optic similarities to DoctorWho intro sequences - not a miracle though, considering the whole game consistently deals with time-travelling.

** [[ActionGirl Spunky Goal]]: Adventurous, impatient, and bold. Spunky Goal is only slightly less brash than Rufus himself, on top of being stronger and more aggressive.

** [[ActionGirl Spunky Goal]]: Adventurous, impatient, and bold. Spunky Goal is only slightly less brash than Rufus himself, on top of being stronger and more aggressive. She's arguably the facet of Goal who gets along best with Rufus.

* TheStoryThatNeverWas: ''Deponia Doomsday'' has a tangled story with time travel, time resetting and time loops that ultimately ends with [[spoiler: Rufus convincing everybody that the tragic end of the previous game is the best option.]]

** ''Deponia Doomsday'' shows that the residents of Kuvaq are [[GenreSavvy used to this]] and take precautions. Electric appliances, barbecues and even lights are turned off around him wherever he goes. [[spoiler:[[DidNotSeeThatComing Not that it]] [[PrecisionCrash helps them]] [[IncendiaryExponent any]].]]

** The fourth game ''itself'' serves as one towards those who complained about the BittersweetEnding of the third, as well as [[SelfDeprecation the developers themselves]]. To wit, the introduction song and every single chapter contain remarks about "wondering what if", "happy endings" and multiple [[DiscussedTrope discussions]] about [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall reaction to endings in general]], serial installments and TrilogyCreep. [[spoiler:The ending serves only to cement the conclusion of ''Goodbye Deponia'', with Goal being convinced to let go and abandon her quest to save Rufus all but serving as an AudienceSurrogate.]]

* BreakTheHaughty: ''Oooooh boy!'' The series could very well be renamed "BreakTheHaughty: The Point'n Break series". A huge chunk of the tetralogy (99,9999% of it) is based around making Rufus go through Hell and back over and over thanks to his enormous ego, whether it's in a comedic or serious way.

** At some point in the second and third games, Goal winds up in revealing attire. In ''Chaos on Deponia'', Spunky Goal dons a fur-bikini ensemble for the Platypus Bataka minigame, while in ''Goodbye Deponia'' she's ripped right out of her jumpsuit in the game's opening stanza. Both alternate outfits are used on the box art of their respective games. To top it all off, if you get all the collectibles, your reward is a naked pin-up of Goal (Unless you used the cheating method, then it becomes a similarly-revealing pin-up of Rufus.)
