* {{Expy}}: The game itself could be considered one big ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' ripoff, with Earnest wielding a whip, outrunning a boulder (When the game works right), the game itself being set in the 1920s similar to the Indy movies generally being set around UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 and at one point you can get a powerup which has Earnest don a hat. Which also gives him a [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest flame whip]], leading to comparisons with ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'', including to do with the platforming elements and Earnest using a whip.

''Earnest Evans'' is a 1991 platform sidescroller made by [[Creator/TelenetJapan Wolf Team]], with music composed by Creator/MotoiSakuraba for the {{SEGA}} [[UsefulNotes/SegaCD MegaCD]] (in Japan only), with a watered down [[UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis Genesis/MegaDrive]] port released overseas. It is chronologically the first chapter of the "Earnest Evans trilogy", ironically being the only game in which you play as Earnest.

* CthulhuMythos: Much like ''El Viento'', the dark god Hastur is involved, and at one point, Earnest and Annet obtain an artifact explicitly called the Elder Sign, used to seal Hastur away.

Further details about its plot are scarce due to the fact that no effort so far has been made in translating the cutscenes to English. For a more detailed attempt at analyzing this game, you can check out the Earnest/Annet trilogy shrine by [=RageQuitter87=] [[http://rq87.flyingomelette.com/RQ/Annet/earnestmain.html here]], where he also has a look at ''El Viento'' and distant sequel ''Annet Futatabi''.

Or you can check out the game in its entierty via WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}'s hilarious video of said game [[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/earnest-goes-to-anime-5467989 here]].

Added DiffLines:

* HumanSacrifice: Annet is about to become one when Earnest rescues her.


Added DiffLines:

* LovecraftLite: Despite the presence of cults dedicated to the return of their lovecraftian dark gods, the series doesn't exactly convey a sense of existential cosmic dread.

The game takes place in 1926, in various different ruins and temples around the world, as U.S. treasure hunter Earnest Evans finds himself entangled in a sinister plot hatched by mafia bigwig AlCapone and cult leader Ulrich to resurrect the dark god Hastur. Along the way, Earnest is joined by Annet Myer, the heroine of ''VideoGame/ElViento'', whom he finds in an old temple, offered as a sacrifice to Hastur, and the enigmatic Zigfried Munchaunsen, a man who also seeks to stop the return of Hastur.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Ulrich the cult leader, who speaks with AlCapone in level 6's cutscene never appears again afterward, though its likely he was the penultimate boss in level 12.
