* EasyLevelsHardBosses: Some of the worlds (and their associated Lizard Eggs/Crystal Gems) are challenging, but if a level itself is hard, the eventual boss will make you want to pull out your hair in frustration. The first boss is relatively easy, but after that... Ugh.

* TheBully: Rhombus. He wears a constant mean glare, and his ShockwaveStomp and ShockwaveClap will certainly keep you on your toes.



* DemolitionsExpert: The Bakudan. It may be small, but it's really skilled with bombs.



* ImprobableAimingSkills: The Fruzard. It's basically a walking sniper rifle.



* RacingMiniGame: One level is almost nothing ''but'' races, in Scaler's ball-like form. Some of them are just time attack, but others have enemies for you to race against.

to:

* DrillSergeantNasty DrillSergeantNasty: Looger's right-hand man, Bootcamp, takes on the guise of a drill sergeant. But this is nothing compared to to his true form: [[TheDragon a massive, dark-green dragon with venomous breath and breathes fire when he gets really vexed.]]

Bobby Jenkins is a kid living with his mom somewhere in suburbia. We'd call him "[[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ordinary]]", but frankly, that's a lie -- he's an [[AnimalWrongsGroup animal activist]], with an especial love of lizards. He's currently gotten himself a dose of local infamy for protesting -- in slightly-less-than-honorable ways--a motion picture currently being shot in his town. Unfortunately, the director, Looger, and his henchmen don't take too kindly to Bobby's meddling. Their solution? [[KickTheDog Drag him into a basement for some torture.]] ElectricTorture.

In the process, they also open up a gate to another world -- ''their'' world, where Looger and all of his henchmen turn out to be [[LizardFolk scaly lizard-people]] who want to mutate Bobby's pet lizard eggs into horrible monsters! Luckily for Bobby, he's ''also'' been turned into a lizard -- a cool, blue-and-yellow alter ego called Scaler, and he quickly adapts. He also manages to quickly piss off another lizard man named Leon. But Leon, at least, hates Looger as much as Scaler does, and the two form an extremely uneasy team to take down the devious director for good!

'''This game contains examples of:'''

* AnimalWrongsGroup: Bobby is a "lizard activist," and he sometimes plays dirty.
* BearHug: [[spoiler: When Leon finally warms up to Scaler -- and realizes that he's his son -- smothering ensues.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Looger's form on Earth.
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist
* DisappearedDad: Scaler's dad left when he was really little.
* DrillSergeantNasty
* EasyLevelsHardBosses: Some of the worlds (and their associated Lizard Eggs/Crystal Gems) are challenging, but if a level itself is hard, the eventual boss will make you want to pull out your hair in frustration. The first boss is relatively easy, but after that... Ugh.
* GeniusBruiser: Leon. Brilliant scientist, and surprisingly muscular force.
* GiantEnemyCrab: One of the bosses. You even attack its weak point ForMassiveDamage!
* GiantFlyer: Leon's "Repadactyl," or "Reppy," as he calls her. She can also apparently, uh, serve as the shop by absorbing energy balls and then spitting up upgrades. Or something.
* GrindBoots: Scaler does this with his ''bare claws''. It also serves as the only way to charge an [[ShockAndAwe electrical attack]].
* LanternJawOfJustice: Leon has an especially prominent one. He's also the local TopHeavyGuy.
* LizardFolk
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Scaler, Leon is your father!]]
* MascotWithAttitude
* MegaManning: Scaler gets the ability to transform by defeating enemies with the form he wants.
* OlderSidekick: Leon, for Scaler.
* ParentalSubstitute: As they start to get along, Scaler comes to see Leon as a kind of vague replacement for his DisappearedDad. [[spoiler:But, surprise! Leon ''is'' Scaler's dad.]]
* RacingMiniGame: One level is almost nothing ''but'' races, in Scaler's ball-like form. Some of them are just time attack, but others have enemies for you to race against.
* SceneryPorn: Leon calls his world the "Worst plane in the {{Multiverse}}," but it's so ''pretty!''
* SuperDrowningSkills: Scaler even says it himself: "CAN'T SWIM!" However, one transformation allows him to swim in a few levels.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: It takes several levels before Scaler and Leon even start to get ''used to'' each other, let alone get along.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld
* TotallyRadical: Scaler. ''Egads.''
* UnexpectedShmupLevel: Several, usually from Repadactyl-back. In particular, the boss fight against the Sky Crab is entirely one of these.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Scaler can change between different forms on certain levels to solve puzzles and the like.
* VideoGameFlight: One of Scaler's transformations lets him fly... but only in one level. Awww.
* WallCrawl: One of Scaler's abilities.
