** "Big Big Super Happy Fun Fun Game" in particular is full of references to Japanese video games. Among other things, Mulhouse is dressed like the King of All Cosmos from ''VideoGame/KatamariDamacy'', the Sparklemon are obvious references to ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', and defeated Fire Sumos say "every light must fade, every heart must return to darkness", from ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''.

* SetAMookToKillAMook: In Shadow Of The Colossal Donut, it's possible to get past the walls of the Springfield Prison, at which point two Rigellians will spawn. If you jump back over the walls to the main area with the Krustybots, the aliens will follow, at which point they and the robots will ignore you and fight to the death. Not that this won't have much of an impact--the bots' ZergRush will overwhelm the aliens in short order.

to:

* SerialEscalation: At the start of the game, you're foiling teenage punks trying to rob a museum, competing in eating contests and trying to get violent video games banned. Then the aliens invade and you have to fight alien soldiers, a giant statue that shoots lasers from its eyes and homicidal dolphins. Eventually, you enter the engine that runs the world and fight your way through a series of video games in which you lead an army of hobbits to slay a dragon and fight in World War II, eventually culminating in [[spoiler: fighting the creator of the whole series before mounting a full-on invasion of Heaven to fight God Himself]].

* UndergroundMonkey: In "Big Super Happy Fun Fun Game", the basic sumo wrestlers in the central hub have fire, ice and air variants in the appropriately themed elemental areas as part of the parody of video game cliches. It's all fully lampshaded, of course.

* AlienInvasion

to:

* AlienInvasionAlienInvasion: The Rigellians invade Springfield halfway into the game, filling the town with alien soldiers in addition to animating Lard Lad and making the dolphins intelligent to sow chaos, forcing the Simpson family to head into the Game Engine to find a way to fight back.



* BadassFamily

to:

* BadassFamilyBadassFamily: The Simpsons, over the course of the game, foil a museum robbery and an illegal logging operation, fight against an alien invasion, invade the Game Engine -- where among other things they slay a dragon and fight in World War Two -- and eventually ''invade Heaven to fight God''. Not your typical family bonding.

* DreamLand: The Land of Chocolate, as the name suggests, takes place in Homer's [[LevelAte chocolate-filled]] dream.


Added DiffLines:

* MadAtADream: Homer Simpson rants about not having the 'giant ball' ability in the first level after he wakes up.
-->'''Homer''': Why is life so unfair? All I want is the ability to eat everything inside and turn into a giant ball! Is that too much to ask? '''''Damn you, reality!!'''''

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: [[spoiler:Sideshow Bob]] is [[TheReveal revealed]] as working with Kang & Kodos for the purpose of making a [[TheCameo cameo]]. This would be a surprise... uf the game's advertising didn't mention the surprise cameo ''whilst showing the character's distinctive silhouette''.

* TechnicalPacifist:
** Despite fighting '''against''' violence, Marge is strangely okay with rallying an angry mob, recruiting violent criminals, destroying property and murdering policemen and children in the first level she's in., Lisa even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this after you complete it. At least she becomes more productive with it for the other 2 levels she's in.
** Lisa's no better: she wanted to stop the Mr.Burn's deforesting scheme, and did it by '''murdering the loggers'''.
