* CreepyCrossdresser: It's heavily implied, at least in [[AllThereInTheManual the manual]], that Gill Barker's twin sister Gillian from the fifth game is actually Gill himself in drag. While Gillian is never antagonistic, the fact that Gill was a [[MultipleEndings potential culprit]] in the previous two games probably has something to do with why he now travels in disguise.



* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks: Boss and Spongehead. Also, the hungry pink shark from the fourth game.

* GenderBlenderName: Freddi. Her voice is also ambiguous enough that it's fairly common for people to confuse her for male. This actually happens in-universe, and she corrects the other fish by saying "Excuse me, sir, but I'm a girl." [[{{TheDevTeamThinksofEverything}} This was possibly intentionally put in to confirm her gender for any unsure players]].

* ShoutOut: In ''Water Worries'', the background of Levels 91-100 has a {{pirate}}y-looking skeleton holding on to a treasure chest. The name on the treasure chest is partially obscured, but starts with "G. Th..." and ends with "...od." Given [[LucasArts where Humongous's co-founder Ron Gilbert came from]], this is almost certainly a reference to [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland Guybrush Threepwood]].
** The 4th game also has many references to [[TheGodfather The Godfather]], and the "Squidfather" has a [[RightHandCat pet cat]] a la [[AustinPowers many]] [[Film/JamesBond famous]] [[InspectorGadget villains]].
** A number of the "movies" you can watch will contain shout outs to various things such as CharlieChaplin and ''TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly''.

Added DiffLines:

* MultipleEndings:
** In the third and fourth games, the culprit is different every time you finish the game, and each has a different motive for why they committed the crime the game centered around. In the third game, the clue for who the culprit is an item in the bag they drop just after freeing Luther; in the fourth, it's an item sitting on a crate in the hideout.
** In the first game, Fiddler Crab and Gabby are both trapped side characters that you can rescue. However, depending on the paths you get, you can end up finishing the game without rescuing one or the other (for Gabby, it's always possible since you only need three of the seven purple sea urchins; for Fiddler Crab, the second bottle has to be at the junkyard instead of the deep canyon, otherwise you will have to use his fishing pole). Should you do this, neither one of them shows up in the ending.

* DisguisedInDrag: A throwaway AllThereInTheManual line strongly hints that Gill Barker's "twin sister" Gillian is actually Gill himself.

* [[RedheadedHero Redheaded Heroine]]: If you interpret her orange scales as red hair, Freddi might count.

* PointOfNoReturn: Finding the last PlotCoupon usually acts as this; e.g. the last clue bottle in ''Kelp Seeds'' moves you on to the sunken ship or the last golden pipe in ''Stolen Conch Shell'' moves you on to the temple.
