* AnotherSideAnotherStory: While the start and end of ''Pirate Queen's Quest'' fall under RashomonStyle and UnreliableNarrator, respectively, the events in between detail her dealings with the Barons of Sequin Land as she assembles the Tinkerbrain. In particular, Ammo Baron in the main game mentions running into Risky, and Squid Baron's behaviour during his boss fight proves Hypno Baron's point about being 'impossible to work with'.

The story begins with Risky's narration proclaiming that "This is what REALLY happened"; the first cutscene is a repeat of [[spoiler:Mimic's completed dynamo turning Shantae's light magic into dark magic]], and aside from Mimic [[OutOfCharacterMoment blatantly praising Risky's intellect in a way he never really would]], it plays out like a basic Rashomon retelling. The final boss fight is Shantae's attack on the factory from Risky's perspective; [[TheBadGuyWins Risky takes victory]]... [[ForWantOfANail only for the Tinkerbrain to self-destruct]] because of her incompetent Tinkerbats. [[spoiler:Turns out she's just (re)telling the story to her Tinkerbat crew.]]

* StealthSequel: The story and trailer make it obvious that the game is not a prequel or a reboot. The appearance of the Chef Girl from Risky's Revenge makes it a full on sequel (and not a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reboot_(fiction)#Soft_reboot soft reboot]], even though some peopole like to think of it that way). It is pretty obvious that [[spoiler: as Shantae has her genie powers,]] it canonically takes place after Pirate's Curse (after the GoldenEnding, where she regained her powers, CameBackStrong, and took down the Pirate Master solo).

* MascotMook: Risky's Tinkerbat pirates, though they're not so much traditionally cute as much as [[UglyCute strange]] and amusing. You can even turn into one if you play the original game on the GameBoyAdvance, and ''Half-Genie Hero'' reintroduces the transformation to Kickstarter/Paypal backers who pledged $55 or higher.
