In addition to the games, a short manga loosely based on them, titled ''Shippuu Tengoku Kaze no Klonoa'' and created by Hiroshi Katou, ran in [=CoroCoro=] Comic for the equivalent of two volumes. Although it borrows many characters, settings, and plot devices from the series, it's largely a gag manga that depicts Klonoa as a well-intentioned fool, trying to solve problems in the most slapstick way possible. Not surprisingly, it never officially made it out of Japan. Also, starting on September 26, 2012, a webcomic titled ''[[http://www.shiftylook.com/comics/klonoa/dreams-and-adventures Klonoa: Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol]]'' began being published on Website/ShiftyLook. Written by Jim Zub and drawn by Hitoshi Ariga (creator of ''Manga/MegaManMegamix'') and Jeffrey "the CHAMBA" Cruz, the comic appears to finally provide insight on Klonoa's adventures after the series, as it depicts characters and elements from more than one of the past games under a single storyline... Or, it did. [[RunningGag In keeping tradition with the franchise]], ''Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol'' was also CutShort due to Website/ShiftyLook shutting down before it could conclude. With that, the future of the franchise is ''once again'' in limbo.

* {{Expy}}: Garlen, host of the eponymous Dream Champ Tournament, is very close to human-like in a world of mostly non-human creatures, is decidedly oval-shaped, wears a military-looking uniform with a colored top and black bottom, has one hand replaced with a claw, [[spoiler:is building a mechanical empire, supports said empire by turning people into (literal) cogs for his machine, and fights in a HumongousMecha]]. [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Does that]] [[SelfDemonstrating/DrEggman sound familiar?]]
* FinalBoss: [[spoiler:Nahatomb]] in ''Door to Phantomile'', [[spoiler:the King of Sorrow]] in the ''Lunatea's Veil''.

* FreakyElectronicMusic: In ''Door to Phantomile'', the impish [[VillainousHarlequin Joka]] is commonly associated with this type of music. His normal {{leitmotif}}, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajteoyTbq8Y Joker Mood]], is a bouncy, funky piece. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yjluyMr9zI No Jokes Around]] is a DarkReprise of this song that plays as he gets more unhinged, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytjWxrlHmkE Joker's Move]] is a creepy sci-fi sounding piece that plays when he finally snaps and [[spoiler:kills Grandpa with FrickinLaserBeams]]. And last, but not least, there's his battle theme, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZSsrQPPwVo Facade and Blade]], which starts out with CreepyCircusMusic, then switches to dark techno music, symbolic of his VillainousBreakdown.

* CreepyCircusMusic: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLNklguPhY8 Facade & Blade]], [[VillainousHarlequin Joka]]'s battle theme from ''Klonoa: Door To Phantomile'' starts out with this type of music, but quickly switches to dark, techno-ish music. This is symbolic of Joka going from being [[LaughablyEvil incompetent and buffoonish]] to being a full-fledged MonsterClown.

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Klonoa shows in ''Empire of Dreams'' that he hates carrots. He gets more upset about it than truly angry, though.
** Granted, he wanted a hamburger...

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A mild one, but during [[spoiler:Leorina's HeelRealization]], Leorina belts out, "Damn it! Damn it all!" ''Lunatea's Veil'' is rated ''E''. Tat also accuses Klonoa and Popka of being "perverts", as mentioned earlier.

* HyperspaceArsenal: In the RPG especially. In addition to the Wind Ring (which can already become a sword and a shield), Klonoa is somehow able to carry around a hammer, and boomerang, and a pair of arm cannons. All of which are bigger than his head.
