* PassThroughTheRings: Those Goddamn teleport levels from ''Tides''. Predictably, some of this in ''Defender'' as well, since it's the only 3D game in the series. An optional feature in ''Ecco Jr.:' after collecting musical rings, you can swim through them to hear simple melodies.

Added DiffLines:

* SpinoffBabies: ''Ecco Jr.'' features a younger version of Ecco exploring the ocean, with such tasks as herding seahorses, [[PassThroughTheRings swimming through rings]], and finding lost balls for sea lions coming into play. This game was created to appeal to younger gamers as part of the "Sega Club" line of games, and thus lacks the difficulties of the series' main games.

* OutsideContextVillain: Being aliens from outer space, the Vortex really stand out when it turns out they're the cause of all Ecco's woes in the first game.

* AfterTheEnd: The Man's Nightmare set of levels pretty much depict an underwater post-apocalyptic world. Humanity enslaved the dolphins and used them to expand their civilization into the seas, and wiped both themselves and the Foe out when they attacked. As a result, the ocean is heavily polluted, life is dying out, the surviving dolphins have no idea where their masters have gone, and they're too stupid to improve their situation.

The next reality happened after Ecco sent back Intelligence and Ambition, turning dolphins into a surly bunch of warlords who drove humans from the seas. Arguably the prettiest section of the game, since the dolphins used a lot of organic-looking technology, and since it includes Hanging Waters, aka "Let's See How Many {{Mythology Gag}}s Can Fit In One Level".

* DownerEnding: One interpretation of ''Tides of Time''. You spend the PlayableEpilogue chasing the BigBad through Atlantis, trying to beat her to the Time Machine and destroy it before she uses it to mess up the timeline [[NiceJobBreakingItHero you just spent the whole game fixing]]. [[spoiler: When you get to it, you use it instead. A scrolling title card (set to the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic rather chilling title theme]]) tells you the Vortex Queen beat you there and warped into prehistory, you went after her, and you were never heard from again.]] For another interpretation, see GainaxEnding.

** 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]].
*** Not to mention Pink Floyd are known for their song "Echoes".

* UpdatedRerelease: The Genesis titles received updated versions on the Sega CD, which featured higher quality music, new sound effects, more levels, and FMV sequences. The first game was later re-release again for Windows 95, featuring all of the enhancements of the Sega CD version along with higher resolution visuals, a difficulty system, and a save feature instead of using passwords.
