* [[PoisonMushroom Poison Fish]]: Among the many health-restoring fish there is one specific kind that'll hurt instead of heal you. These poison fish are the only way to heal you from a slow death due to jellyfish poison. If you're poisoned and eat this fish, you won't take damage and your health won't increase, but the poison will be gone. They can also be mildly useful after you learn the Song of Fish. Sharks don't want to eat poison fish, so having a little cloud of them following you around makes a nifty living shield. The downside? Fish are slow, so said living shield is only effective when you don't need or want to swim quickly.

A Creator/{{Sega}} video game series about a [[TimeTravel time-travelling]] [[HeroicDolphin bottlenose dolphin]] who fights space aliens. His friends include a pteranodon, a telepathic strand of DNA, and flying dolphins from ten million years in the future. Or, if you ask some people, a telepathic crystal and various alternate future dolphins. The games were developed by the Hungarian studio Novotrade International, later known as Appaloosa Interactive.

* PteroSoarer: There's a helpful pteranodon in the first game. Somehow, without the use of any grasping hindfeet, he manages to carry Ecco over some cliffs.

* AnimalsNotToScale: The great white shark from "Perils of the Coral Reef" is gigantic, about as big as a humpback whale. One might mistake it for a {{megalodon}}.



* MythologyGag: ''Defender of the Future'' occasionally references the original games, but Hanging Waters in particular seems to be a love letter to them. The level itself is the 3D version of the Skyway, the squid may be referencing both the Eight-Arms and the flying medusa all in one go, and the giant bird towards the end calls the helpful pteranodon to mind, right down to how he's summoned with song.

* 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".
