Remember {{A|nAesop}}esop's ''TheTortoiseAndTheHare''? Imagine that same struggle, only 2,000 years into the future with both participants as [[FunnyAnimal anthrophomorphic animals]], armed to the teeth and out for each others' blood.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Devan Shell. He engaged in his campaign of terrorism because he was so incensed about the attitude of the lagomorphic antagonist of ''TheTortoiseAndTheHare'', [[HoistByHisOwnPetard but he didn't notice that the attitude that got him so fired up is the same thing that cost the hare the race, thus teaching said mammal a valuable lesson about hubris]]. The manual comic lampshades this, having Princess Eva say "This guy goes on a ''tirade'' after reading ''fairy tales''! I guess we're all lucky he wasn't [[UsefulNotes/CharlesManson listening to]] ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum''!".

Developed by EpicMegagames, who would eventually rise to further fame as just EpicGames and go on to develop games like the ''VideoGame/{{Unreal}}'' series and ''GearsOfWar'', these games starred the titular rabbit hero with quick feet and a big gun, crossing galaxies to butt heads with the evil Devan Shell and to free the captured princess of his home planet. Once considered PC gamers' response to the likes of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', the Jazz games sold on fast-paced run-and-gun action (with bonus levels surprisingly similar to Sonic's) and the titular MascotWithAttitude. The first two games in the series received many expansion sets, including Christmas-themed ones, [[{{Vaporware}} and the franchise ground to a halt when the third game failed to ship]]. Surprisingly the games still maintain an active online community, and Jazz 2 is still actively played online by the proud and the few to this day.

* AttackDrone: If you free a caged bird, it will follow you around and shoot whenever an enemy is near, but you lose it if you take damage. [[spoiler:In the first secret level, you play as one of these birds.]]

* DummiedOut: Tons in Jazz Jackrabbit 2, due to rushed production. Everything from secret levels (at least three, including two complete levels) to bosses (one complete and only used in a later bonus pack, another with no attacks and a third that's invisible despite having sprites) to minor enemies (some functional, others not) and powerups ([[FrickinLaserBeams Frickin' Laser Shield]]!). There's a bunch of unused sprites in the animation file, too, including '3D' views a-la the 3D Bonus Stages in JJ 1.
