** Many of Chomp's attacks such as [[MrDriller Drill em Mister]], [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Ghoul's Cascade]](which even has a blue fire effect), [[VideoGame/RType Artype]], and [[VideoGame/RollingThunder Rolling Thunder]] are references to classic VideoGames.

* NominalHero: Ellie just wanted to find her way back to her home world and had no intention of saving the Monster World. She just happened to come across some fellow kids who wanted to kill her. It wasn't until she learned of Priscilla's diabolical scheme that she decides to intervene. Ellie herself lampshades this in the ending, claiming herself as not a hero, she just did what she had to.

* 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.
