Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew: The Giant Robots are the most obvious example of this but the series is chalk full of references and things that just aren't likely to be found in Edo era Japan like, cameras, Hollywood, giant space ships, bazookas, submarines, pizza and much, much more.

* ''Bōken Jidai Katsugeki Goemon'' (2000, UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation2}}S2): A slightly DarkerAndEdgier attempt at reimagining the series, with a kid Goemon with a pet white tiger, and a more serious tone. Has cameos from long-time [=PCs=] Yae, Sasuke, and Ebisamaru. Has a complete [[VaporWare unreleased english localization]] by WorkingDesigns.

* YagyuJubei: Appears in ''Sarawareta Ebisumaru'' as "Yagi Jubei"; Yae's older sister Hitoe may be modeled after him.

** Actually, starting with Goemon 2 SFC, the townspeople would no longer harm Goemon in town, at least until he attacks someone, triggering an infinite swarm of furious cops, as a nod to previous Famicom-era games... Played straight however in a town set within Goemon 2 Final Castle (which may be justifiable), and whith te platforming sections.

** Despite the game being somewhat censored on Western importation; the English version of ''Goemon's Great Adventure'' does contain the word, "damn."
** The instruction manual for the English version of the first SNES game contains this description of the Memory mini-game: "You really have to concentrate in this camp." Yep - somehow Nintendo's censors missed a concentration camp joke right in the middle of a kid's game.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: ''Legend of the Mystical Ninja'' has the Mountain Pass boss, a giant kabuki actor, who gets no explanation, and after his defeat Goemon and Ebisumaru simply continue on their way.

* InUniverseGameClock: Featured in a few games - tougher monsters appear at night, and some side quests are available only at certain times of day.

* MythologyGag : Early on the DS game, Goemon has to free the Wise Man from imprisonment by brainwashed village culltists. In one of the cells, ReplacementScrappy Neo Age Goemon (not depicted in the same Sumi-e art style as the rest of the [=NPCs=]) is held for copyright infringement.
** The two Goemon games for the Famicom, and the first one on the SNES (the localized one) has a severe case of EverythingTryingToKillYou, as all of the villagers, cops, fishermen (and the fish they're holding) trying to kill you. Starting with Goemon 2 SFC, this is no longer the case, but if you hit someone, you're likely to be raided by an infinite army of cops, in a nod to the earlier games. The DS game even summons more powerful cops every time you clear enough of them, some being end-game enemies. But the cops won't react if you attack a thief, or some grandmas/old men (who are much more dangerous then cops..)

* NoodleIncident: Its not at all explained why the [[ChivalrousPervert old perverted man]] and kitsune joined forces to menace Japan in the SNES game. Continuing to harass the princess, forces the mystical fox spirit to call off their deal, leaving the old man completely impotent.

** In ''Goemon's Great Adventure'' there's a sidequest in the Tree Stump Village involving a girl that wants to get ride of the crow tengus infesting the Wonder Valley. She asks you if you are the exterminator she hired and then she correct herself saying that said exterminator mentioned something about [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses]].

* PolygonCeiling: Averted with the two first localized N64 games (the third, Goemon: Mononoke Sugoroku, being a Japanese-only version of Culcept), but played horribly straight in the 3D [=PS1=] and the only [=PS2=] outings. Futuristic Punk Kid Goemon, anyone? Rumours say it was the reason Sony would not allow these to be localized. The Only redeeming factors in those outings (infamous for a blue void as a background, and horrible game designs) are its FMVs, or the Impact Battles pushing those systems to their limits.
* SkipOfInnocence: Ebisumaru is a [[GenderInvertedTrope Rare Male Example]]. Some games (The Super Famicom ones mainly) have him skipping as a walking animation.

* WhatTheHellPlayer: In ''Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon'', after rescuing the Lord in the Transformed Oedo Castle, he asks you to investigate the Peach Mountain Shoguns, the main antagonists. You have the option of accepting or refusing the call. If you say "no", the Lord will comment on how he can't believe a hero like you would refuse his request followed by the LaughTrack. If you keep refusing, the Lord will [[WelcomeToCorneria keep repeating the same line]], but the LaughTrack will be replaced with [[DudeNotFunny disapproving groans]].

* AdaptationDistillation: The games are already light on plot, so trimming the fat allowed Obi to [[AdaptationExpansion expand upon]] some characters' roles - such as Omitsu in ''Legend of the Mystical Ninja'' and Impact in ''Ganbare Goemon 4'' - and generally making things more interesting.

What games do most people think of when they hear the name "Creator/{{Konami}}?" ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''? ''Franchise/MetalGear''? ''Anime/YuGiOh''? How about ''Ganbare Goemon''? No? Well, you're not alone.
