Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless:
** The sheriff in the fourth game runs off the minute he gets rescued, not even paying a hint of attention to Freddi trying to point out their kidnapped hogfish problem. Additionally, at the end of the game, he's quick to arrest the two who run the hideout, but doesn't even consider the fact that they may not be the only suspects until Freddi points it out.
** Can be inferred in the third game as well; when the conch shell goes missing, Uncle Blenny is ''the only one who gets any hint of blame for the crime'' by virtue of him being the keeper of the conch. This is in spite of the fact that he has a folder with a picture of everyone else who was nearby, and the fact that while he could possibly be a suspect for all they know, he shouldn't be immediately accused as the only possibility. Then again, considering we never see any police in the game to begin with, it could also just be the fault of the townspeople, which would at least make a lot more sense.

* 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.
