''The Great Giana Sisters'' is a platform/action adventure game from Germany. It was published in the 1980s to [[FollowTheLeader basically cash in on]] ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' for the UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}} market, since Creator/{{Nintendo}} has never published games for non-Nintendo consoles.

* DungeonBypass: Stage 2 and 6 allow the player to run across the top row of bricks, in a similar style as SuperMarioBros. All other stages that don't allow this either have no ceiling, or make the ceiling solid stone and provide no means to start a ceiling run.

* MinusWorld: Pressing ARMN on the final stage brings you to the bonus stage (which it calls "Stage 27"). This bonus screen is normally available by entering some areas, but the warp cheat causes the game to treat it as normal level and not generate the exit lift. Pressing ARMN again will crash the game when it tries loading "Stage 00".

* BubbleGun: The sisters' main offensive ability in the original game can be acquired by touching lightning, giving them the ability to shoot "Dream Bubbles". This can be further upgraded with a Double Lighting power-up to shoot Dream Bubbles that will bounce off walls, and further upgrades with a Strawberry into homing Dream Bubbles.

Like Mario, Giana has a variety of power-ups to help her along her way. Her main ability is transforming from her very ''Literature/AliceInWonderland''-ish normal persona into "Punk Giana" (in the 1980s, a punk rock chick with a crazy mohawk and loads of piercings who shoots bubbles; in the more recent version, into a {{Goth}} that shoots fire) which allows her to shoot projectiles to subdue enemies, take another hit[[note]]unless it's the original game[[/note]] and break blocks with her head. She can alter these projectiles by collecting other power-ups which give the projectiles properties like bouncing or homing. Giana can also use convenient vending machines to give her giant bottles of soda which she can spray to break through walls or attack enemies, or bubble gum to allow her to fly provided she doesn't pop the bubble.

* AgeLift: Inverted. For the DS retool, Giana and her sister Maria were aged down from teenagers (maybe early adults) to little girls.

* GenreSavvy: According to the Giana Comic (the pages of which are posted on the official Website/{{Facebook}} page), the Hansel and Gretel boss came about because a mook observed Giana using powerups in the Commodore 64 game, and tried one for itself, becoming the NintendoHard boss it is now.

* PaletteSwap: Giana's sister, Maria, is just Giana with green hair.
** As of the ''Twisted Dreams'' expansion pack, she now has a paler skin tone, ponytail, and a giant ribbon in her hair in art, but still isn't playable.

* OneHitPointWonder: In the original, grabbing a Firewheel and turning Punk doesn't add an extra hit point to Giana/Maria. Averted in ''DS'', as Punk Giana actually makes Giana fire powers and acts as a SingleUseShield as well.

* SuperPoweredEvilSide: The DS version's credits strongly imply this. Punk Giana can shoot fireballs, and survive a hit, compared to Normal Giana... who can do none of those things.
