Added DiffLines:

* PressStartToGameOver: While the original ''IWBTG'' lets you get killed in a matter of seconds, ''Gaiden'' takes it to new heights by introducing an overworld map...that tries to kill you...before you even reach the first stage! Good thing this game offers unlimited lives like its predecessor!

** 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.

* 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.
