** In ''Half-Genie Hero'' if you touch Risky Boots during the boss battle with her, she will damage you. However, in the [[VillainEpisode "Pirate Queen's Curse"]] [[DownloadableContent DLC]] you [[VillainProtagonist play as the villain]] Risky Boots as she goes on a quest to achieve her wicked goals. You battle the bosses from the main game, but when you get to the point in the game where you would normally face Risky Boots, you battle [[HeroAntagonist Shantae]] instead. In this scenario ''touching'' Shantae when controlling Risky Boots causes damage to Risky, which is [[{{Irony}} the exact opposite]] of what happens in the main game. Hero or Bad guy, player damage from touching enemies doesn't discriminate.

* MutuallyExclusivePowerups: Some of the dances Shantae can get only from the lamia merchant are mutually exclusive. To get one, she has to trade in the other. The money-generating Gem Jug dance can only be gotten if she traded in the valuable Warp Dance, and she has to trade in the Obliterate dance to get the [[JokeItem Blobfish Dance.]]

* Fanservice: By the truckload. To name a few examples, most female characters wear some form of clothing that [[BareYourMidriff exposes their midriffs]] and/or [[StripperificOutfit rather suggestive outfits]], including the titular character, Shantae. Another example is in ''The Pirate's Curse'', there is one part where Shantae, Rotty, Risky, and Sky all wear skimpy outfits that are reminiscent of what is described in-game as a [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi "A Space Princess."]] And said outfit is even skimpier than the normal attire for those characters.

** The Friends To The End DLC is rather brutal as well - Bolo, Sky and Rottytops share a measly 3 hearts between themselves (which can't be upgraded), and while Rotty's got a healing mechanic, it eats up half her Dream Magic bar every time it's used, and almost nothing drops health or magic for the trio.

** Hard Core Mode. You take more damage, enemies have more health as well as act faster, extra enemies and obstacles are placed where there were none before, late game foes appear much earlier, healing items are capped at 6 instead of 9, falling in the Cape Crustacean carpet race section now sends you back to the beginning instead of bouncing you back up, and the Magical Tiara now gives slight magic regeneration instead of infinite magic.

* 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 people 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).

** The third boss is a reference to ''Anime/KillLaKill'' as Ammo Baron uses the fibers of magic carpets to make battle uniforms for himself and his men, and when Shantae beats him, she destroys the costumes, reducing the Baron and his men to their underwear. It may also be a call-out to [[VideoGame/StreetFighter M. Bison]], as Ammo Baron's upgraded commander outfit is red, and he hovers around the battle with his arms crossed and a big grin on his face.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: At the start of all of the Costume Pack DLC modes, Shantae comments that her debriefing/summer safety tips/ninja scroll is lengthy, and she wishes she had a way to just skip all of it - a subtle reminder to the player that skipping cutscenes ''is'' a thing in this game, in case they're on their second time through.
