Added DiffLines:

* ExactWords: The Moon Juju states a mighty warrior will save her and stop Tlaloc, but it turns out Tak is the mighty warrior she was expecting. She adds the prophecy never said anything about Lok being the warrior.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In Jibolba's flashback of Lok getting smooshed to death, he states he tried to stop the herd of sheep but he couldn't; throughout the game, Tak can carry the sheep at will. This hints that Tak is the true mighty warrior as stated in the prophecy.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: The first game opens with Jibulba summoning a mighty Juju to guide Tak through his adventure. This turns out to be the player. Jibulba marvels at the "power stick" the player holds, and the "mystic box" the player watches him on, noting that it is clearly "the most important thing in your hut."

''Tak and the Power of Juju'' is a series of {{platformer}}s that was later adapted into an AllCGICartoon TV series made in 2007 by the Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} network. In the game, Tak is a boy who is the apprentice of a jungle-dwelling tribe's Shaman. When the tribe's patron Juju (god), The Moon Juju, is captured by the evil shaman Tlaloc, she is supposed to be rescued by a prophesied hero. But the tribe's greatest warrior, Lok, was also turned into a sheep by Tlaloc. So Tak gets sent in a series of quests to find the means to restore him to normal. It eventually turns out that it was Tak himself who was the hero all along. The game has had four sequels so far.

The cartoon, which serves as the 24th member of the Franchise/{{Nicktoons}} brand, drops most of the adventure elements from the game and instead focuses on the comedic ones. ''Everyone'' in the show is an idiot, though some are dumber than others. [[RapidFireComedy The gags come fast one after another]], with common sense and even reality taking a backseat. In most episodes (each of which contains two stories) Tak himself is to blame for the problem going on, by causing them or making them worse. Tak is often helped by Jeera, the {{tomboy}} daughter of the tribe's chief. The [[NightmareFuel utterly bizarre]] Jujus are also usually involved. Lok is also in the series, still admired as a hero when he's really just a boastful coward ([[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist not that Tak is much better]].) Some of the jokes [[RefugeInAudacity cross the line of good taste]] occasionally.

!!Tropes seen in games and TV series include:

* AbsurdityAscendant: The TV show is full of this.
* TheAce: Lok is presented as such in the first game... [[ButtMonkey and proceeds to be mocked relentlessly from then on]].
* AllJustADream: The entire second game. OrWasItADream
* AnimatedAdaptation
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Jibolba describes the plight of the Pupanunu people in the first game, he calls the Moon Juju "good, and wise, and pretty." Then he mentions Tlaloc having imprisoned her, and states that Tlaloc isn't good or wise, "and he's ''certainly'' not pretty."
