* PainfulPointyPufferfish: The pufferfishes are harmless when deflated, but trying to eat one in their puffed, spiky form will hurt Ecco.

* ClintSquint: Ecco is fond of employing these in the computer-rendered cutscenes in ''Tides'' before he starts kicking ass.

* SceneryDissonance: The Type 1 is common in the series. Plenty of the scenery is pleasant, but the games are clearly quite dark.

At present, the first three games (Ecco, Ecco 2 and Ecco Jr)are available on various official emulators, such as UsefulNotes/PlayStationNetwork, Wii Virtual Console, and Steam.

''Ecco'' is often considered a cult classic - the fanbase it has is small, but devoted, and there are [[http://web8.orcaserver.de/ecco/ are]] [[http://www.ecco-darksea.com/ several]] fansites for it on the Web.

All in all, ''Ecco'' is a very bizarre, haunting, frustrating, and strangely charming series. Don't expect to see any more of him in either the Genesis or Defender storyline anytime soon. Unless it's for [[http://blogs.sega.com/usa/2010/04/01/on-these-high-seas-no-one-can-hear-you-scream/ an official]] AprilFoolsDay prank. The creator of Ecco tried to fund a SpiritualSuccessor, ''The Big Blue,'' through Kickstarter, but the attempt was plagued by bad marketing and was only marginally successful. In 2016, a beta version of ''Defender'''s sequel was unearthed and [[http://hiddenpalace.org/Dreamcast_Ecco_lot publicly released on the Internet]].

Added DiffLines:

* EasyLevelTrick: 'City of Forever' features a series of difficult jumps follow by a long and confusing maze of a level. Or one could just sing to the statue less than a minute from the start to open up a secret room with a portal that takes Ecco straight to the time machine. (Especially useful as this level must be done twice in the story.)

Added DiffLines:

* KaizoTrap: Trilobite Circle from the first game, already a long and difficult level, has a very strong current right next to the exit that will drag Ecco ''back to the start of the entire level'' if the player isn't prepared to avoid it.
