Added DiffLines:

* NonStandardGameOver: Destroying the fishing boat in the first game before you've done everything you need with it doesn't kill you, but ends the game anyway as it's now impossible to win.
** Attempting to kill the gnome for no real reason gives you a WhatTheHellHero and promptly ends the game out of fear for what you'd do to the princess.
** Dying on the rapids chase in the sequel rewinds time to the beginning of the sequence. [[spoiler:The rapids chase is in fact an UnwinnableByDesign RedHerring which requires you to think outside the box, and rewinding time is necessary as a standard game over usually only allows you to undo the fatal move.]]

* SelfDeprecation: The second game, written well over a decade after the original and with the benefit of hindsight, mocks a number of the unlikely or unexplained aspects of the original.

* ArtifactOfDoom - Parodied with the Golden Cufflink of Fire.
* BalefulPolymorph - Than dog you kept throwing a stick at? Turns out it's a guy under a curse, and he calls you an asshole for not helping him sooner.
* BrokenBridge - Most puzzles take this form, including one that's a literal broken bridge. (In the sequel, a modern suspension bridge has replaced it.)
* ButtMonkey - The poor Indian Runs-With-Scissors. It starts with a single injury that you heal. A later one needs a unicorn's help. It turns out that he suffers 34 injuries a year simply by sitting in the open and now faces false insurance fraud charges.
* CoolCrown - Despite the crown's magic properties, the game just says, "All right. You got the 'Crown of Destiny' or something. Happy?"
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass - Hes Ahkia.
* {{Curse}}, CurseEscapeClause - In the first game, you meet a dog. It's not till the second, set 20 years later, that you learn he's a cursed man, and if you only fed him right off, you would have broken the curse.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks - The shark's presence and attack is as random as can be.
* FortuneTeller - The Soothsayer, who demands gold for any assistance. She's back in the second game, this time demanding even more gold and gleefully lampshading her general uselessness.

* KillerRabbit - The gigantic bunny rabbit, who's even more powerful than the gigantic black cat. You later have to fight the carnivorous giraffe!

* NiceJobBreakingItHero - Apparently, the sweet girl you let out of prison is an insane killer who will return to evil.

* RiddlingSphinx - A Sphinx asks you a riddle. Unless you're playing the original, console game, you get to choose your answer from a list, so this is one of the game's easiest portions.
* SadClown - The poor guy has no nose!
* SaveThePrincess - The synopsis itself promises a subversion.
* SchmuckBait - Some of the suicidal options.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness - "It has fallen upon you to find this evil overlord, absquatulate with the Golden Cufflink of Fire..."
* ShopKeeper - The sweet old owner of the general store. He can't possibly be hiding anything, can he?
* ThePasswordIsAlwaysSwordfish - Probably shouldn't leave those passwords on notes nailed to trees.
* TooDumbToLive - You, if you choose. "Bang your head on the rocks"? Yeah, sure.
* {{Unicorn}} - It heals. And it loves carrots.
