* LudicrousGibs: The {{Metroid}}s are the only hazard in the game that do not reduce the Kid to this.

* FundamentallyFunnyFruit: Eggplants. Of course, they're trying to kill you just like everything else in this game.

* HarderThanHard: The difficulties start at "Medium" and go ''up'' through "Hard", "Very Hard", up to "Impossible". The actual game itself is always the same no matter what level you're on. The only difference is the frequency of save points (and the EasyModeMockery on Medium). There are ''zero real'' save points on Impossible. You're expected to win the entire game with one life. In all literal seriousness, Impossible mode ''is'' possible, but requires quite a bit of memorization and a fair degree of benevolence from the [[LuckBasedMission more random luck-requiring bosses]]. When somebody eventually beat it, after six days of trying, only taking breaks to eat, sleep, and use the bathroom, the creator's official response was [[http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/forums/index.php?topic=152.0 "holy crap your not serious are you"]].

** This game was the first LP ever done by Music/{{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.

* FollowTheLeader: The game is actually based off a Japanese flash game called ''Jinsei Owata no Daibouken'', also known as ''The Life-Ending Adventure''. [[WordOfGod As Kayin himself says]] [[http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/faq.php on the faq]], "I played a 2chan flash game that was stupid hard and thought, '[[LetsSeeYouDoBetter Hm, I can do better.]]'" Amazingly, ''Owata'' was [[ObviousBeta unfinished]] when Kayin played it. When the game was actually completed (long after the release of IWBTG), its final section [[spoiler: [[RecursiveAdaptation is literally taken from I Wanna Be The Guy itself]], ''[[{{Crossover}} with the Kid as the]] FinalBoss!'']]
** And of course, there are many fangames, all of course following the leader.
*** When I Wanna be the Love Trap 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".
