* BrutalBonusLevel: [[spoiler:The Worm]] and [[spoiler:The Mothership]] both ratchet up the already high difficulty level, though both also feature a (different) powerful weapon ([[spoiler: The Crysknife and the The Plasma Cannon, respectively]]) as a reward if you manage to fight your way through them.



* SwallowedWhole: On certain levels you can bait a giant worm into doing this to you, leading to a dangerous bonus level inside the worm's body.

The [[spoiler: Haunted Castle]] also qualifies, assuming you try to [[spoiler:claim the Black Knight's shield.]] Heck, the only bonus level that ''doesn't'' earn this label is [[spoiler: The Black Market]], and even that can be bad if you [[spoiler: anger all the shopkeepers.]]



** Acquiring the [[spoiler:Crysknife]] from a [[spoiler:Worm level]], which is possible as early as the first Jungle level, allows you mow down most bosses and enemies with impunity.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: The game deposits a skull or a pot right at the start next to your newly-arrived spelunker, ensuring he has something expendable to toss down ahead as a trigger if he immediately encounters an arrow trap.

* EatingTheEnemy: The [[ManEatingPlant Mantraps]] will do this to ''you''. As well as pretty much every other enemy, including frogs, monkeys, cavemen, and angry shopkeepers.

* EscortMission: Every time you try to rescue the damsel. Fortunately, she's nearly invulnerable and makes a good human shield (or [[GrievousHarmWithABody weapon]]). You can carry her around. However, in the remake she (or he, or it) is NO longer [[RealityEnsues as durable as she used to be]], and can only take a couple of hits before perishing.

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: It has to be admitted, players are probably much more antagonistic than needed to shopkeepers because of how how they pull out their weapon on you. And considering they are most likely just being cautious around somebody who fought their way down, it's almost a SelfFulfillingProphecy.
