* DoubleEntendre: The title of the game ("goolies" is a British slang for testicles), and many lines spoken by the characters, particularly Fiddlesworth the groundskeeper. Some of Fiddlesworth's lines were so very risqué that they were [[ExecutiveMeddling cut from the game]] before release.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Even by Rare's standards, the title is an astonishingly blatant play on the phrase "Grabbed by the goolies" (i.e. testicles). Also, some of the girls held captive by the Baron are wearing ripped schoolgirl outfits. Combine this with the fact they're bound and gagged...

* PoesLaw: So many people thought it was a legit attempt to be scary by Rare. In fact, IGN even said it was one of the worst SurvivalHorror titles ever... despite being a parody of horror movies.

* AbnormalAmmo: Cooper can acquire guns that fire a stream of Holy Water (melts zombies), cloves of garlic (slays vampires), and soda cans (does a lot of explosive damage, period). He can also throw wine bottles, hamburgers, toilet paper, and flower pots as projectiles with up to six shots of each, as well as finding and using numerous other, larger single-shot throwables.

Humorous and entertaining, but highly unsuccessful sales-wise. The game's lack of commercial success is [[SelfDeprecation repeatedly referenced for laughs]] in later Rare titles, such as 'VideoGame/BanjoKazooie: Nuts and Bolts''.

* EasterEgg: ''Far'' too many to count. There are innumerable {{Shout Out}}s toVideoGame/BanjoKazooie in the decorations in the mansion, including numerous paintings of characters such as Mumbo Jumbo, Klungo, and even [[DummiedOut "Devil Bottles" from 'Tooie]]. There is also a whiteboard in the schoolroom with writing and symbols on it [[RedHerring apparently]] giving information regarding Banjo's infamous [[UrbanLegendOfZelda "Stop 'n' Swop."]] Monstrous versions of the title characters appear as [[DeathByCameo mounted heads]].

* SequelHook: The game ends with Cooper and Amber walking off towards the village of "Ghoulsville in the Gloom" mentioned in the opening sequence, with Baron Von Ghoul sneakily following them in his biplane, seemingly setting up for another adventure. Unfortunately, given the game's disappointing sales and the inclusion of "Ghoulies II" among various joke game titles (as in, [[{{Sequelitis}} outlandish Rare sequels]] that will never be made) depicted in the ending sequence of ''BanjoKazooie: Nuts and Bolts,'' prospects for a sequel no longer look promising.

* CowardlyLion: Cooper's so scared shitless that there's an entire mechanic around calming him down post-{{Jumpscare}}. He still braves a haunted house to save his girl.
