* DevelopmentGag: Several:
** God Mode's noises were inspired by JohnRomero making what he considered "God-Like Sounds" whenever he played ''RiseOfTheTriad'' in God Mode.
** Apogee president Scott Miller's head appears in a secret area in episode 2, level 3. If you collect it, you get 2,764,331 points, a reference to Apogee's order number at the time. It shows up again in the remake's version of the same level, at the end of a NintendoHard hidden obstacle course.
** The three DIP balls found throughout the game reference the dev team, nicknamed the "Developers of Incredible Power".
** The character Doug Wendt is named after one of the developers' dogs.
** The names of three protagonists come directly from the ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' ''[[WhatCouldHaveBeen Bible]]''

Added DiffLines:

* CameraScrew: Shrooms Mode makes your view move up, down, left, and right all the time. This is done [[JustifiedTrope on purpose]].


Added DiffLines:

* InterfaceScrew: Several:
** If you get trapped by an Overpatrol, your view is partially blocked by a net and you can't do anything before you get out. That can be done by either rapidly hitting the left and right arrow keys several times or using a knife if you have one.
** The Elasto Mode makes you move even when you don't press any keys and bounce off walls and objects.
** The Shrooms Mode makes your view move up, down and sides, and you see all the enemies, traps, and movable columns as one-coloured with the colour blinking and changing all the time.

** In the reboot, when fighting [[BigBad El Oscuro's]] [[OneWingedAngel monstrous form]], you can press the button on the console to blow up L.A. El Oscuro, of course, has some choice words for that.
