* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: The throwing knife is pretty much universally seen as the best way to finish the game (well, until you're forced to grab the shield), since it has good range, damage, and fire rate, and travels predictably. Because of this, players have been known to deliberately die if they miss the knife or pick up something else.

* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Maximo: Ghosts To Glory'' is technically not part of the series, but was very obviously inspired by it. ''VideoGame/MediEvil'' too, to say nothing of ''VideoGame/MalditaCastilla''.

* DamselInDistress: Princess Prin Prin is kidnapped in every single game she appears. Technically she gets killed off in ''Ghouls 'n Ghosts'', but since Arthur is fighting to save her soul from Lucifer and restore her back to life, it essentially amounts to the same thing. It's a wonder why she never [[ReconstructedTrope takes exception on it and evolves]] into RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething territory.

* BalefulPolymorph: A magician who likes to hide in treasure chests does this if you don't kill him fast enough. Being hit by his magic turns you into MANY different things depending on game/armor status, including a girl, duck and seal that all can't attack, and an old man that can...but slowly. Another transformation is a bee whose "flying" hitbox can actually be beneficial and allow you to walk across lava.
* BladderOfSteel: Simply putting a Save option on the SNES version would have made it a ''lot'' less frustrating. Fortunately the digital download ports on the later Nintendo systems have pausing in the form of the home functions.

* EventFlag: interesting case in Super Ghouls and Ghosts; playing through the game normally, you can't advance to the final boss chamber unless you have the Goddess Bracelet. However, if you use the stage select code and START at the boss chamber, Sardius CAN be defeated with the lance.

** The GameboyAdvance port of ''Super Ghouls n' Ghosts'' could also count as this. It includes an all-new "arranged mode" with branching paths and new levels.
