*** When I Wanna be the LoveTrap was made, it has a certain boss. The game showed a picture of Hatsune Miku, and played The Disappearence of Hatsune Miku while forcing you to dodge Delicious Fruit of all colors, as well as negi. Many people then started putting similar segments in their fangames, using other Japanese Vocaloid songs and forcing you to dodge for the entire song. Many fangames were made with nothing but these "avoidance bosses".

I don't believe that message is any different in British English.
* InterfaceSpoiler: For the [[spoiler:fake error message]] in the Castle of the Guy to truly work, you need to be [[spoiler:running Windows XP with the default theme and in American English.]] It's kind of hard to fall for otherwise.

** This game was the first LP ever done by {{Rawrzaur}}, all the way back on his previous channel of ZeroMegamanX. He has gone on record during one of his live streams as saying that the original reason he even started [=LPing=] in the first place was to prove that he could actually beat this game.

* BaitAndSwitchBoss: Near the end, the Moon that has been plaguing you appears all huge, as if ready to engage in a final showdown, [[spoiler:and then gets smacked aside in about two seconds by the dragon from ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'']]. Especially misleading in that the Moon was high in the sky for the entire minecart ride beforehand, ''and'' the minecart section had "The Moon" from ''VideoGame/DuckTales'' playing as the background music.

* MusicalSpoiler: Subverted! The MinecartMadness segment has "The Moon" from the ''VideoGame/{{DuckTales}}'' game playing as the background music. That, combined with the full moon high in the sky, makes you think that the boss guarding the Guy Fortress will be the Moon that has plagued you so much.

** In fact, the Moon does the same thing much, much earlier: throughout the ''VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins'' area, the Moon appears bigger and bigger with each screen. On the screen with a Full Moon, you head under it and the Moon falls down onto you. Instead of killing you, of course, it just breaks the floor and drops you into the Mecha Birdo boss fight. ** The I Wanna Be the Guy Mugen fangame has you fight many of the bosses from the original game. One of the bosses starts with the moon, which again gets knocked aside by the Mega Man dragon. [[spoiler:Then the moon reappears and smashes the dragon!]]

* BilingualBonus: The Japanese on the mock-''VideoGame/{{Ikaruga}}'' warning before Mecha-birdo says "I hate [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorayaki Dorayaki]]". Incidentally, it's also misspelled with the character for "jealousy" where it should say "fried", perhaps to match the quality of the English text.

* GottaKillEmAll: In keeping with the Metroidvania theme, you need to take out '''six''' bosses before you can enter The Guy's estate: Tyson, Bowser, Dracula, Mother Brain, Kraidgief, and Mecha Birdo. The gateway is a shout out to ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'', specifically the entrance to Tourian which is inaccessible until you remove the statue depicting the game's bosses (which won't budge until they're all beaten). Like in ''Super Metroid'', you can tackle the bosses in any order.

* {{Homage}}: Pretty much everything in the game is a recreation of or reference to some old famous game, including ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}, Kirby's Dream Land, Ghosts 'n Goblins, VideoGame/MegaMan, {{Metroid}}, VideoGame/CastlevaniaI, VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'', and more. Especially the hard''er'' parts. Most of the bosses are actually taken from other games, though made much harder. * HumongousMecha: Mecha Birdo.
