* LukeYouAreMyFather: Or rather, "Ecco, You Are My Ancestor" and literally the second thing Trellia tells Ecco, preceded only by her name.



* MindOverMatter: The future dolphins carry Ecco with their minds if he enters their hitbox. Obviously, it's put to use to get through the levels where they turn up.



** To ''Music/PinkFloyd'' of all things with the level title "Welcome to the Machine". Which makes it only natural for someone to create [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdLKjdW0y4U&feature=related this]]. There's also a reference to their song "Echoes".

*** Hilariously, ''Ecco'' creator Ed Annunziata commented on the [=YouTube=] video.

* 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. ''Defender'' is only available on the Dreamcast and [=PS2=]. ''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]].
