* AdaptationalVillainy: Mr. Smithers, who robs a jewelry store for a mere diamond. [[JustifiedTrope This is due to the video game taking place in the early days on the show before he received character development and he was only established to be Mr. Burns' right-hand man.]]
* AscendedExtra: Professor Werner von Brawn, who was only in one episode of the show, managed to become the first boss of the game. Also the drunk boss in Moe's Tavern resembles a background character from the first season "There's No Disgrace Like Home".

* CombinationAttack: Any two family members can do a combination attack if they idle next to each other long enough. There are three types - Homer and Marge hold each other's ankles and quickly roll around the screen, Bart and Lisa link arms and wail to defeat foes (wider range but less speed than their parents' attacks), Homer lifts Bart or Lisa on his shoulders to attack from up there for extra damage and Marge picks up either kid to throw them across the screen.

* ComplexityAddiction: Burns. He needlessly steals a diamond he could probably just afford to buy with ease; outright kidnaps Maggie instead of just taking the diamond back from her; and probably spends much more than the diamond's value itself on all those {{Mook}}s, weapons, etc., to try and stop the Simpsons from justifiably coming for her.

* DualBoss / MirrorBoss: The two thugs you encounter throughout the first three stages of the game. They can do a CombinationAttack just like PC's.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: For the franchise as a whole, though in all fairness the cartoon was still in its infancy (the show was only in its second season when this was released). Take for example, Lisa, an extreme vegetarian since the season seven episode "Lisa the Vegetarian," exclaiming “alright!” as she devours a health-regenerating Krusty Burger.

* HumiliationConga: Mr. Burns. All his presumably-hired mooks and bosses were defeated, his presumably-very expensive battle machine was destroyed, he didn't get the diamond he had sent Smithers out to steal in the first place, and, as the icing on the cake, [[spoiler:[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking after losing, he gets a baby pacifier stuck in his mouth.]] Not a good day for Mr. Burns.]]

* PinballScoring: {{Averted|Trope}}; like many of Konami’s other beat em ups at the time, you get just one point for knocking out an enemy. Rewards for doing well in the bonus stages are also minimalistic.

* SpotlightStealingSquad/ WolverinePublicity: Suprisingly averted, given the era it came out. Bart is no more or less important or prominent than the rest of the Simpsons family in the game itself or its advertising.

** Also Inverted, as after you completely destroy Burns's machine, Burns himself only takes one hit to finish off.
