* LostForever: The meter for unlocking a new form stops rising once the connected form Chomp needs to be in hits level 30, which will make it impossible to unlock. The sole exception seems to be the Elite Guard form, and ''only'' if you had already used enough of the required items before point of no return to build the rest of the meter through having Chomp take and deal damage.

* OneManParty: Many of Chomp's skills aren't that useful, and it's easier to go through the game without him on the top screen.
** Near the end of the game, this trope is still present, but on the other end, with a properly-raised Chomp being practically game-breaking, to the point where Ellie will barely contribute.

* PaletteSwap[=/=]UndergroundMonkey: Different "elemental" versions of monsters.
** Chomp himself is actually a protagonist version of UndergroundMonkey, as all of his forms in the same stage of growth are slightly altered versions of each other.

* ShoutOut: Ethan says that someone named [[spoiler:Henry Hatsworth]] (he had trouble remembering the name) had stepped in the monster world before. This particular person was a character whose game was also developed by Peter Ong. [[spoiler:Ellie says that this reminds her of her great uncle.]]

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: when Ellie first enters the monster realm she doesn't seem too surprised that not only is she in a completely different place, but it has also instantly turned from night to day.

* YouHaveResearchedBreathing: Most of Ellie's powerups, actually. She needs a powerup just to learn how to ''swing her knapsack''. She then needs an additional powerup to swing it continuously, and another to swing it in an uppercut.
** She also needs one to learn how to ''roll''.
** There are also two powerups that do nothing except allow Ellie to perform two attacks she learned previously in the air.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Ellie.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGoomba: Small {{Waddling Head}}s called Dumbseekers. One ability Chomp can get is the ability to turn into them. [[JokeItem As you might expect, this does nothing.]]


Added DiffLines:

* JokeItem: The Dumbseeker Copycat ability does nothing but turn Chomp into a little green version of the game's [[TheGoomba Goomba.]] It does no damage and provides no advantage.


Added DiffLines:

* WaddlingHead: The basic enemies, natch, given the game's intentionally trope-tastic nature.
