* FollowTheLeader: A reversal of sorts happens in 1-3 [[spoiler: Sweet Grave, a revisit to the beginning of IWBTG]] starts right where [[spoiler: ''The Life-Ending Adventure'' starts ''its'' rendition of IWBTG, complete with some of the same traps, such as a suddenly-double-sided spike platform.]] [[WordOfGod Kayin himself]], in a Skype call on Gaiden's release, stated that the correlation was purposeful.



* {{Homage}}: While the previous game had a lot of {{Shout Out}}s, ''Gaiden'' has a noticeable ''VideoGame/BionicCommando'' vibe to it - the new protagonist is named The Lad (ala Ladd Spencer) and is colored green, and has a grappling hook. The first two levels are based off the game as well.

->''"''VideoGame/IWannaBeTheGuy'': One of the most legendary, ridiculously awful platformers ever created by man. It is not a game so much as it is a torture device. It is designed to reduce grown, burly men to tears; {{tears of blood}}. It's a a fairly horrendously difficult game. It's a cruel game. It's an evil game. '''And they released a sequel.''' This game should be against the Geneva Convention. But it isn't, so I guess we're playing it!"''

* NintendoHard: Just like its predecessor. Again, you have unlimited lives and checkpoints, so feel free to die as many times as you need to. Which will probably escalate into the hundreds and then thousands very quickly.

* ReferenceOverdosed: The version that Floe played at EVO 2012, which is playable by the public via a code, has a boatload of FGC and Twitch allusions.
** Use of the EVO official logo
** Use of Twitch emotes, such as [=DansGame=] (also known as the Floe Face), Kappa Ryu and [=PogChamp=] in place of fish in certain places. Includes using the [=SwiftRage=] emote for one boss.
** Various soundbytes that play after a death:
*** Mike Ross' "I was hustled, man!" (from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKkrVDdcpJc Excellent Adventures Season 4 Episode 5 with Combofiend]])
*** Gootecks' trademark laugh
*** [=UltraDavid=]'s "What are you standing up for?" (from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AptIg6t9ecQ Ricky Ortiz vs. Wolfkrone in SSF4 at UFGT8]])
*** Shao Khan's "You suck"
