** Aside from picking up the enemies themselves and throwing them, or grabbing an nearby object (including other nearby enemies) and throwing it at them, this is Marina's main form of attack and the one used most often in boss fights. The first major boss fight has you catching the boss' own fist and throwing them back into his face (grabbing and throwing SOMETHING is her only means of attack aside from a single slide move.)

The first major boss fight with actual strategy required has you catching the boss' own fist and throwing them them, first into his dad, then back into his face (grabbing and throwing SOMETHING is her only means of attack aside from a single slide move.)

* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids: Marina was originally created to do Theo's household chores. And she's strong enough to toss robots the size of trucks and catch missiles out of the air.

''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.
