''Mischief Makers'' is a 2-D PlatformGame (with occasional 3-D elements) where grabbing, throwing, and, yes, shaking objects is integral to gameplay. It's more puzzle-oriented than the typical platformer; you must often go through elaborate mazes of warp points, use [[ItemCrafting Clanpots]] to create specific items, find some specific enemy in the stage, [[GuideDangIt or do any number of other, sometimes unintuitive, tasks to proceed.]] All play is timed, and each level has a hidden Gold Gem to find; both time and [[HundredPercentCompletion Gold Gems collected]] affect the ending.

** [[spoiler:The final boss as well, though you can grab it and smash it on the floor. To defeat it, you need to [[TennisBoss throw its missiles back at it]]]].

* CatchAndReturn: Often the most devastating means of defeating enemies is by throwing their projectiles back at them. [[GrenadeHotPotato Grenades]] and even rockets can be caught, plus Marina can also grab laser beams and throw them back as balls of energy.

* ChildhoodFriendRomance: There are a few hints that Teran's pal [[{{Tomboy}} Sarie]] fancies herself the Unlucky one, compared to Teran's sister Celes [[spoiler:-- who's not actually his sister, but the Princess who people have been saying has been missing for half the game. She's actually been in hiding and Teran is her bodyguard.]]



* DistressedDude: Professor Theo is constantly getting himself into scrapes, and would probably be screwed if he'd never built Marina.
** Marina isn't helping matters either. Every time she rescues him, he tries to grope her and [[PervertRevengeMode she ends up chucking him halfway across the planet.]]

** Arguably, ''the entire game.''

* {{Cyborg}}: Marina, of course, though quite a few enemy Clancers have mechanical enhancements as well, including [[ArmCannon Arm Cannons]] of varying descriptions and, for some reason, tank treads.
