* CollectionSidequest: Each level has a certain number of Nibblonians in cages. Finding them all unlocks loading screen art, music and cutscenes.
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Taken to extremes when the crew lands ''on the sun'' and they're just fine... as long as they don't touch the lava "floor"
* ConveyorBeltOfDoom: Shows up in the factory level and at Mom's headquarters.
* DeathCourse: A few levels approach this, but especially the Sun Temple.
* DemBones: The skeleton robots in Sun City.



* IndyEscape: Bender's second level, "Run, Bender, Run".



* LaserHallway: Shows up in Mom's headquarters.
* LoadingScreen: The game uses in-universe advertisements, most of which can be glimpsed in the show.
* {{Mayincatec}}: Sun City is designed this way.



* NoSuchThingAsSpaceJesus: After Leela defeats her Boss, the Sun God, he says, "You found me out... I'm not really a god... I'm just an ordinary...eternal, omniscient, superintelligent being."



* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler:The crew travel back in time to just before the Professor sold the company, swapping their damaged ship for the older one unnoticed (thus explaining why it was damaged at the start of the game).]]

* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler:The crew travel back in time to just before the Professor sold the company, swapping their damaged ship for the older one unnoticed (thus explaining why it was damaged at the start of the game). This neatly sets up the fact that there's nothing they can do to change the timeline.]]



* TimedMission: Zoidberg's level, "Bogad Swamp Trail" in which he has two minutes to get to each checkpoint while Leela cranks up Adoy's (mostly broken) time machine.



'''Professor''': About a week ago, and I've been trying to kill you to test it ever since.
* WackyWaysideTribe: Leela's levels involving the Sun Temple, which ends with the crew earning enough dark matter to get to Bogad, but otherwise has nothing to do with Mom's plan.
* WouldntHitAGirl: [[spoiler:The Professor, which doesn't stop him kicking Mom in the hip.]]

-->'''Farnsworth''': When you die, it will automatically make an exact duplicate of you, based on your x-rays, a DNA sample and scrapings from the inside of your tennis shoes.\\
'''Fry''': Wow! When did you invent it?\\

The story, written by J. Stewart Burns of the TV series, opens with Professor Farnsworth informing the Planet Express crew that, due to his poor business plan and their incompetence, he's had to sell the company to Mom. This immediately backfires when Mom, now owning 51% of Earth, is declared its supreme ruler, and promptly enslaves humanity. Now the crew must escape into space to find a way to undo the Professor's mistake.
