** The game includes Indy meeting Wu Han for the first time, but one of Indy's final lines directly references meeting the mob bosses for the sale of the Nurhache urn, and at the beginning of ''Temple of Doom'', when the meeting takes place, Wu says that he has accompanied Indy on many adventures. Also, Indy and Wu Han's first meeting happened in McCoy's novel ''Indiana Jones and the Dinosaur Eggs''.

Added DiffLines:

* SuperDrowningSkills: Averted with Indy, who can hold his breath for a pretty decent amount of time underwater. Played straight with enemy Mooks, who die instantly if they fall in deep water.

** In one section, Indy is attacked by German Bf109 fighters. In 1935 this aircraft was still in prototype so this is JustPlaneWrong.

* FedoraOfAsskicking: It's Indiana Jones. Of course he's got his fedora. Which can be knocked off in a fight and must be retrieved afterward.

Added DiffLines:

* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks: Sharks menace many of the watery areas, and can easily ruin an unwary swimmer's day. Luckily, Indy can spot them from dry land and can potentially drive them off with explosives or gunfire. Also, as they are also happy to attack {{Mook}}s, Indy can use them to his advantage in a fight.

* AutomaticCrossbow: The ones used by the Black Dragon members, which Indy can use. Oddly enough, they still make gun-like sounds when loaded and the arrows are referred to as "Ammo" like all the other gun's bullets.



* BladeOnAStick: Spears can be found in the later levels of the game, but they break after a while and cannot be carried with you.



* DisneyVillainDeath: While fighting it is possible to send mooks to their doom if there's a cliff nearby. This is also how Von Beck finally dies.



* DualBoss: The Feng Twins, who're fought like standard human enemies but are faster and can use combined attacks.
* ElementalPowers: Downplayed but present: if you take a close look during the final boss battle you'll notice that the four power ups you need are themed with the four elements. Too bad though that Chinese lore has ''five'' elements (earth, wood, metal, fire, water).
* EleventhHourSuperpower: Pa Cheng, the "Dragon's Claw", a precision guided FuumaShuriken which is used to defeat the last two bosses and navigate the last levels.



* EvilSorcerer: What Kai really is.



* {{Foreshadowing}}: One of the keyes to the inner sanctum of Poseidon's Temple is the "Kraken Coin", pictured on a pillar outside of the hall as a octopus-like being with red "eyes" in his mouth. You get to fight the very same beast in the final area (aptly named, The Lair of the Kraken).



* GiantSquid: There's a boss fight against one.

to:

* GiantSquid: There's a boss fight against one.one, the Kraken, under Istanbul. This one, however, doesn't attack with CombatTentacles, but by sending poisonous jellyfish at you.



* GroinAttack: Possible to use against enemies, resulting in a scream of pain and few secs of stun. Indy can be on the receiving end against the Feng Twins.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: The Emperor Huang Di, if his first words during his short resurrection near the end are of any indication.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Upon losing control of the Heart of the Dragon, Kai is devoured by the very dragon he summoned.
* HollywoodAcid: You have to use vials of this (later a broken pipe oozing it) to defeat the Experiment.



* ImpossiblyLowNeckline: The Feng Twins, again.



* NightOfTheLivingMooks: The last two levels features undead ghouls possessed by yellow wraith thingies that you must kill. In the tomb of the Emperor, some of these spirits will actually possess freshly killed mooks.



* OptionalStealth: There are some missions where you're told to be "stealthy" and sneak unnoticed into buildings. You can still punch and kick the ass of every single mook you come across without penalty. In certain areas however, if you're spot by the Nazis they'll activate an alarm that will close some of the doors, forcing you to turn it off.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: In the FinalBoss fight, Kai summons one with the power of the Heart of the Dragon. Unlike typical chinese dragons, this one is mindless and breathes fire.



* PuzzleBoss: The first two bosses, the Experiment and the Kraken, cannot be fought with conventional means: the former is immune to everything you can throw at him, forcing you to douse him with the acid vials scattered in the lab. The Kraken has to be driven away with the special speargun so that you can destroy the four pillars with the demo charges.



* StandardFemaleGrabArea: Mei Ying suffers from this.

to:

* SinisterScimitar: Seen in Istanbul with the turkish guards wielding yatagan and in China with goons armed with curved swords. While Indy can pick up and use them, he can only take the yatagan with him, but will exchange it for a machete asap.
* StandardFemaleGrabArea: Mei Ying suffers from this. Then again, she was at a disadvantage.



* ThoseWackyNazis: Albrecht Von Beck and his goons are the main antagonists on several levels.
* ThreateningShark: Featured on some aquatic levels, such as the Temple of Belisarius in Istanbul and the lagoon on Penglai island. Indy can even be SwallowedWhole by them! Fortunately, if you have a spear-gun handy, you can fight back.

* TakeOverTheWorld: Kai's real objective.

levels. Subverted later on when is revealed that Kai's the real mastermind.
* ThreateningShark: Featured on some aquatic levels, such as the Temple of Belisarius in Istanbul and the lagoon on Penglai island. Indy can even be SwallowedWhole by them! Fortunately, if you have a spear-gun handy, you can fight back. Even the machete will do.
* UnderwaterBossBattle: The Kraken. Namely, the room does have areas out of the water, but the battle itself must take place underwater. Fortunately, the [[StationaryBoss monster doesn't leave his nest]].


Added DiffLines:

* WeaponOfXSlaying: Pa Cheng can be used to harm demons and permanently get rid of those floating yellow wraiths.
