* GuideDangIt: One of the final puzzles involves running over spikes using Risky's Boots. This is the only time that this occurs, and spikes are normally a void out elsewhere.

This is the only time that this occurs, is mandatory, and given that spikes are normally an instant-death in the same matter as an endless void, the only way you'd know to use it is if you've ended up TooFastToStop in a void out elsewhere.similar situation beforehand.

** One stretching all the way back to the original GBC game; after a run-in with Risky Boots, Bolo claims he'll never wash his head again. [[spoiler:After the Pirate Master's defeat, he narrowly misses catching Risky, and comments that he still hasn't washed his head since that day.]]

* SpinAttack: The Fighter's Tiara allows you to perform one as an upgrade to your {{Charged Attack}}. It's actually [[ForMassiveDamage pretty strong]], but [[DeathOrGloryAttack it's very easy to kill yourself using it]], since it flings you off uncontrollably at high speed, often past the initial bounds of the screen in a game where [[BottomlessPit bottomless pits]] and [[SpikesOfDoom spikes of doom]] are everywhere.

* ''Shantae'', originally for the Game Boy Color, and later re-released on the Nintendo 3DS [=eShop=]. Its story is thus: One day, the evil pirate captain Risky Boots raids Scuttle Town with her army of [[{{Mooks}} Tinkerbats]] and steals the Steam Engine, one of the creations of Shantae's GadgeteerGenius Uncle Mimic. With it, she plans to build an enormous machine which she can use to take over the world--but in order to do so, she needs the [[MacGuffin Four Elemental Stones]]. It's up to Shantae to track them down before she does.

%%* ProtagonistTitle* ProtagonistTitle: The series is named after its protagonist, with the first having just her name and most of the sequels adopting a CharacterNameAndTheNounPhrase formula.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In Shantae 1, Shantae has ''[[VideoGameLives lives]]'', dance transformations are considerably more cumbersome, also the game is much more NintendoHard thanks to Shantae's poor reach of her hair whip attack and the enemies having a lot more health than in ''Risky's Revenge'' and ''Pirates' Curse''.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In Shantae 1, Being the only game in the series published by [[Creator/{{Capcom}} a major publisher]], has a much different feel from its predecessors. Shantae has ''[[VideoGameLives lives]]'', dance transformations are considerably more cumbersome, also and the game is much more NintendoHard thanks to Shantae's poor reach of her hair whip attack and the enemies having a lot more health than in ''Risky's Revenge'' and ''Pirates' Curse''.''Pirate's Curse''. It's also generally more Zelda-like, with multiple towns to visit and several minigames. Instead of having a magic meter, Shantae's spells have purchasable "charges," and when you run out you need to buy more. There are also several items/spells that have never reappeared in the series, such as the Vanishing Cream for temporary invincibility, or the Float Muffins that make you immune to bottomless pits. You couldn't upgrade Shantae's basic hair attacks at all, unlike in later games. And Shantae's monkey form was brown like an actual monkey, instead of being [[MorphicResonance purple like her hair]] like it is in every subsequent appearance.

* WarmUpBoss: The P.O.O.P T.O.O.T (ItMakesSenseInContext) is incredibly easy, with you just needing to hair-whip explosive barrels into it to stun it, something which is made very obvious on the stage, meaning that it's highly unlikely you'll lose.
