* MajorInjuryUnderraction: This happens in the game's "miss" sequences, although it's usually with Ace / Dexter getting shot (as mentioned in "Deadpan Snarker").

** Ironically, this makes the game easier, as the same sections are considerably harder when played with Ace than with Dexter.

* SequelDifficultySpike: Though not technically a sequel, this game is LEAGUES above Dragon's Lair in difficulty. That game did have occasional moments that didn't allow you enough time to react to the situation before something kills you, but this entire game plays that way. Unless you know what's coming ahead, there is no way to get through 90% of the game's obstacles without dying. Doubles as NintendoHard, triples as FakeDifficulty in that there's no way a normal human could respond in time to almost all the game's obstacles without prior memorization, quadruples as HarderThanHard (though the game naturally plays this way even on the easiest mode, so it's not a difficulty option but the game's inherent difficulty), and quintuples as TrialAndErrorGameplay, If you don't have the solutions to the obstacles memorized, you will never get through the game.
