* DummiedOut:
** ''The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds'':
*** Freddi, Luther, and Eddie the Eel have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFlcUf6ntNs an unused cutscene]] that can be unlocked by adding "[=EddieEatsLuther=1=]" (after the first time, that and "[=BretIsTheOverlord=1=]") to the game's section in the INI file.
*** The handle of the sword stuck in the barrel on the sunken ship's deck has two unused animations that can be unlocked by adding "[=EnableFishBradSword=1=]" (after the first time, that and "[=PeteIsAlsoTheOverlord=1=]") to the game's section in the INI file.
*** The game's [=HE4=] file contains [[CutSong unused music]], including "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEepxWAf6ec Fat Chants 2]]" (an alternate version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsZbzhKczjQ one of the game's background themes]]), which [[EarlyBirdCameo would later be featured]] on the album ''Flabby Rode''.
** ''The Case of the Haunted Schoolhouse'':
*** Freddi has an unused line that can be triggered by getting [[MacGuffin all five trap parts]] then checking the list (which can only be done by using the game's debug mode or [=ScummVM=]'s debugger).
** ''Water Worries'':
*** An unused LevelEditor exists, and it is fully-functioning. It can be accessed by typing "room 13" in [=ScummVM=]'s debugger.
** ''Maze Madness'':
*** An unused [[EarlyBirdCameo early version]] of the ''Squoosh'' arcade mini-game from ''PuttPutt Travels Through Time'' can be accessed by using [=ScummVM=]'s debugger and typing "room 6." This version of the mini-game has four different pictures to reveal: the Seattle [=SuperSonics=]' '95-'01 logo, Luther pulling his fins out from the Junkyard Dogfish's mouth (a scene from ''Freddi Fish and the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds''), Pep licking up Putt-Putt's vomit while Putt-Putt watches, next to Chuck Wagon (a DummiedOut scene from ''PuttPutt Saves the Zoo''), and 30 live-action people.
*** An unused LevelEditor made for the developers exists, but it is unknown how to get it to test levels. It can be accessed either by adding [=RhettCool=1=] to the game's section in the INI file and pressing "e" at any time during the gameplay, or by typing "room 5" in the debugger.
** ''The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell'':
*** The Conch thief's [[ThiefBag bag]] is an inventory item that can only be obtained by using the game's debug mode or [=ScummVM=]'s debugger. It cannot be selected or used.
** ''The Case of the Creature of Coral Cove'':
*** For whatever reason, the very beginning of the game's [=HE4=] file has the toy store theme from ''PuttPutt Joins the Parade''.

* {{Expy}}: Jason from ''The Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds'' is basically a fish version of PuttPutt. He's even named after Putt-Putt's voice actor at the time.

* 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.

* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Worm Doodles for Luther.

to:

* {{Totem Pole|Trench}} BedsheetGhost: The "ghost" in the second game is just Boss and Spongehead stacked on top of each other, covered with a sheet. Freddi figures out that the ghost isn't real when part of the sheet tears off.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Worm Doodles for Luther.Luther, particularly chocolate-covered variety.

* FictionalCurrency: Purple sea urchins. There are at least five variations, all of which are more valuable: red sea urchins (worth two purple ones), blue sea urchins (worth three purple ones), gold sea urchins (worth four purple ones), and orange sea urchins (worth more than four purple ones; exact value unknown).

There's also a mention in the fourth game of Gill owing a loan shark twenty clams; the significance of this debt implies that a clam is worth more than any sea urchin seen in the series.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Several characters in the second game will sing if you click on them or one of the objects around them (e.g. clicking on the xylophone will cause Casey to start singing).

* LighterAndSofter: After the first game, the series was much brighter and cheerier. The third game is especially this, in comparison to the first two games.



* SeverelySpecializedStore: There are two in ''Freddi Fish 4'': Nelson's store, Just Buckles, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin only sells belt buckles]], and Gill Barker, who specializes in wheel nuts and bubble gum.
* 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 [[Creator/LucasArts where Humongous's co-founder Ron Gilbert came from]], this is almost certainly a reference to [[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland Guybrush Threepwood]].

* SmallNameBigEgo / TheNapoleon: Despite his small stature, Luther is very full of himself. At the end of the first game, [[BlatantLies he says he found the treasure with a little help from Freddi, and fought off 50 big sharks.]]



* ThreateningShark: The aforementioned. Gill Barker is also the only recurring suspect, potentially committing the crime in both the third and fourth game.

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.
