* 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.



* BigBad: A slightly disfigured-looking dragon (referred to as Fucha in the original game manual).

* 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.

''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}} never published games outside its consoles.

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 outside its for non-Nintendo consoles.



An official sequel, known as ''VideoGame/GianaSistersTwistedDreams'' was released at [[http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/giana_sisters_twisted_dreams/ GOG ]] and [[http://store.steampowered.com/app/223220/ Steam]] on October 23rd, 2012, with an eShop release on September 5th, 2013, and a [[https://www.amazon.com/Giana-Sisters-Twisted-Dream-Directors-Cut/dp/B01586FH6W/ref=pd_sim_63_6?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=G187ESSX49QYTHGZ39MP Director's Cut disk version]] released on October 29th, 2015, almost three years later. This one changes things up a bit by allowing Giana to switch between her normal and punk form at will. Doing so not only alters Giana's abilities, but also [[DualWorldGameplay switches the world around her from dream to nightmare]] (though which is which seems to be a matter of perspective). Each world has its own hazards, and switching between the two at the right times appears to be the focus of the gameplay. This was followed by a mini-expansion pack / mini-standalone game, ''Rise of the Owlverlord'', which adds a fourth world and boss (the titular Owlverlord who can swap between Pirate and Ninja modes) to the game.

* ArtifactTitle: ''Giana Sisters DS'' does not contain Maria, so "Sisters" is no longer accurate. She makes a return in ''Twisted Dreams'', where Giana must save her from the dragon Fucha who has abducted her to Dreamland.
