* OutsideContextVillain: Witchcart is more like a villain out of a fairy tale than the supervillain level threat Eggman posed; she was the first antagonist in the series to directly use magic instead of just robots to accomplish her goals, predating the more significant use of this kind of threat with Chaos in Sonic Adventure. Most notable is that unlike Chaos, her magic does not involve the use of the Chaos Emeralds, which are completely absent from Tails Skypatrol.

* AbsenteeActor: This is one of a handful games in the franchise where both Sonic and Eggman are completely absent. Tails is the only regular appearing, and all of the other characters are unique to this game. Sonic and Eggman are only mentioned in passing in the manual (and Tails uncovered Witchcart's plot in the first place because he assumed the islands rail like system was a new scheme being set up by Eggman).



* NintendoHard: Even though the game is surprisingly short (only five levels), you will have a hard time beating it. Among the factors that make it hard include the claustrophobic stage design, the constantly moving screen, and Tails' floaty controls, which leaves very little room for error, and not to mention that if you touch ANY surface beyond an item or some enemy attacks, you will die. The lack of a save or password function in the non ''Gems Collection'' versions make this game only beatable by the most dedicated gamers, and with this in mind, it's no surprise why this game didn't get released outside of Japan.

The aforementioned HitboxDissonance throws in some nasty FakeDifficulty to top it off.

Added DiffLines:

* HitboxDissonance: Tails's hitbox is actually just ''one pixel''. To make up for it, everything ''else'' has a hitbox much larger than its appearance.

* OddballInTheSeries: Even more than TailsAdventure, since this is one of the few games in the classic series with absolutely no platforming at all, and it has little in the way of speed elements; it's a rail shooter with puzzle elements, with the only regular character appearing being Tails. The other characters, including the one shot villain Witchcart, are exclusive to this game. There are no Rings to collect or protect you with (and the ring Tails carries works as a boomerang) and there are no Chaos Emeralds or special stages.

Added DiffLines:

* WitchClassic: Witchcart wears black clothes and a pointy hat, uses magic as her primary method of attack, and has three henchmen.
* WickedWitch: Witchcart is one. She doesn't ride a broomstick or own a cat, but she has the look down and uses magic in her schemes and during your fight with her.
