* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Darkrai]] the BigBad of the game goes out of his way to avoid attention to prevent people from realising that anything is wrong (the collapse of Temporal Tower is so insidious that no one realises anything's wrong until the time gears start to go missing, and the player has no idea that anyone was responsible for the main quest. [[spoiler: He also immediately tries to kill the player once they establish themselves as dangerous to his plans.]] [[spoiler: And when his initial plot is foiled, he is savvy to the point of creating another one where he begins by trying to get rid of the protagonists by posing as Cresselia and telling them they have to die to fix the spatial distorsion he created himslef.]] [[spoiler: and when he ''does'' have to actually fight the protagonists, he does it after almost tricking the player character into joining him, having an army of minions in ambush and a time portal ready to use.]]

The second entry (or rather, [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo entries]]) in the {{roguelike}} Franchise/{{Pokemon}} SpinOff series known as ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon,'' ''Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness'' and ''Explorers of Time'' were released for the UsefulNotes/NintendoDS in 2008, followed up by an UpdatedRerelease called ''Explorers of Sky'' in 2009.

Similar to the [[VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeonRescueTeam first installment,]] the player wakes up in a world inhabited solely by Pokémon, this time washing ashore of a small village called Treasure Town after a storm, with no memories of what happened to them or how/why they've been transformed from a human into a Pokemon. They befriend a timid young Pokemon with a mysterious artifact and together join the local Wigglytuff Guild to train as an exploration team, exploring the strange, randomly generated "mystery dungeons" that have been showing up in various regions lately. Along the way they learn that a mysterious Pokémon has been reported stealing [[{{MacGuffin}} very important artifacts]] called "Time Gears," and ultimately get swept up in a quest to SaveTheWorld before [[TimeStandsStill time itself grinds to a halt.]]

* VillainBall: [[spoiler:Darkrai grabs a really stupid one at the end of the epilogue arc after spending most of the plot being DangerouslyGenreSavvy. All he had to do was [[jumping in the time portal as soon as realized he had no chance against the protagonists and he would have won.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Remember how Ditto is said DevelopersForesight: Should you lose in a boss battle you were supposed to be unable beat to change its face? Well, take a look at advance in the Special Episode 4 story, the events that unfold them are different. Most of the time that means bosses skip their introduction, but it varies. [[spoiler: For example, in Sky [[spoiler:"Bellossom" has a different face in portrait than usually. It's "Igglybuff the Prodigy", Igglybuff would believe Armaldo likes traps because it's actually a Ditto]].they fell into the same trap they did before... except they already knew it was there. Similarly, in the graduation dungeon in the post-game story, Wigglytuff is forced to shove the player and the partner into the pit just as they were going to avoid it - this goes in tandem with everyone involved in the graduation battle ([[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Except for Wigglytuff]]) [[VisibleSilence not saying anything if you talk to them before returning]]]].
