* StylisticSuck: One of the trailers for the game, in an obvious parody of Nintendo's habit of [[MerchandiseDriven adapting their]] [[{{Mario}} biggest]] [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda names]] [[MerchandiseDriven into breakfast cereals]], features several occurrences of minor TotallyRadical, as well as deliberate screen distortion as if it was recorded on an old VHS tape.

* ShowWithinAShow: The in-universe arcade games, "[[UsefulNotes/VirtualBoy Virtual]] VideoGame/MeatBoy", "[[BitTrip Bit.Trip.Retro City]]", and "[[WebVideo/EpicMealTime Epic Meal Time: Epic Might Test]]". The latter is an implementation of ''Videogame/MortalKombat'''s "Test Your Might" minigame.

** Goes even further with ROM City Rampage, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hvx4xXhZMrU as documented here]], a continuation of the original demake meant to run on [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem actual]] [[UsefulNotes/AppleII 8-bit]] [[UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}} hardware]], taking ''every'' limitation into account.

The story goes that the game's original developer, Brian Provinciano, built his own homebrew engine for {{NES}} development, and started work on a {{Retraux}} demake of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII''. After overcoming programming limitations by moving the game to the PC, he started adding in other various references to the characters from his childhood, including, but no doubt not limited to classic games such as ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'', and ''VideoGame/BionicCommando''.

* NintendoHard: FittinglyFittingly. Well it starts out easy until at least halfway the missions are becoming hard. Near the end there's even the recreation of the infamous NES TMNT underwater level with deadly electrified seaweed too!


Added DiffLines:

** Ultimately subverted as The Player, while still carjacking and rampaging, help up the good scientist against a worse villain.
