* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Since Risky couldn't fight against the Pirate King's plan directly, she gave the Magic Lamp to Shantae, hoping that her ChronicHeroSyndrome would turn all the dark magic back into light magic. Further, remembering how Shantae handles a HostageForMacGuffin decision, she gambles her life on Shantae with herself as the hostage (the light magic is useless while it's still in the lamp).]]

** Risky's Boots usually require some running room to charge up, but a trick called the "Risky Shuffle" can be used to charge them in place by walking back and forth using both the D-Pad and analog stick. This allows them to be usable virtually anywhere, and in particular allows you to skip the elevator puzzle in Oubliette of Suffering.

* FoeYay: Risky and Shantae. The first scene with the bathtub alone seems to suggest Risky has an interest in Shantae. Which Shantae seems to return, if her attempts to turn Risky to the side of good is any indication. There are just too many scenes with those two that seem to go beyond the personal feuding that is part of the genre.
