* NewGamePlus: The Famicom, Game Boy, and ''Namco Museum Vol. 3'' ([=PSOne=]) ports reveal a CheatCode after beating the game that unlocks a hidden "Another Tower", which is another 60-floor romp with even ''more'' difficult and convoluted treasure solutions. The ''Namco Museum Vol. 3'' port exclusively also contains the "Darkness Tower", which has you traversing Floors 61 to 120 with the difficulty cranked [[UpToEleven even higher than before]] (if the first two Towers weren't enough).

** Clearing ''The Return of Ishtar'' awards a pair of clear game passwords for Ki and Gil to be used on the password input screen. Using these would allow the player to start from any room in the game, including the two secret rooms that are otherwise inaccessible through normal gameplay. Entering the passwords without inputting a Room Code instead starts you back at the beginning of the game, but Ki now has a vastly increased Spell stock of 50 charges, and Gil's starting Energy limit will be massively increased to 400 Energy.

* KaizoTrap: Druaga himself appears on Floor 59. Floor 60 simply involves grabbing Ki and Ishtar... but in a ''very precise'' order and movement pattern. Screw this up (and [[GuideDangIt all things considered]], you might), and you can kiss your progress goodbye on the final floor.



* PoisonMushroom: The Potions of Energy Drain and Potions of Death, and any item after not obtaining the Balance on the previous level.

* PoisonMushroom: The Potions of Energy Drain and Potions of Death, and any item after not obtaining the Balance on the previous level. The [=PSOne's=] "Darkness Tower" also has a Treasure on Floor 101 that will straight-up kill you instantly.


Added DiffLines:

** The [[NewGamePlus Another Tower]] included in certain ports of the game features Treasure solutions that are even more sadistic and bizarre than the original game. The best example of this would be the Pearl on Floor 31 in the [=PSOne=] Another Tower. Revealing the Treasure Chest on this Floor requires ''ejecting the game disk'', which no player in their right mind would ever consider attempting in the midst of playing a game.

* VideogameCrueltyPunishment: You can attack Ishtar and Ki, instead of rescuing them, destroy walls on a final floor (both can kill the player just like if they touch an enemy), and exiting floor 59 without defeating Druaga... if you don't mind being sent back almost to ''the beginning of the game.''

** The Return of Ishtar has an "ATTRACT ROOM", but nothing really resembling a gameplay demo sequence.

** The ''The Return of Ishtar Ishtar'' has an "ATTRACT ROOM", but nothing really resembling a gameplay demo sequence.



* CreatorCameo: In ''Return of Ishtar'', one of the rooms, labeled "Dead End", features a long hallway leading to a small room with a man slumped over in an office cubicle, dead. Using Gil's magic to revive the man warps you to another room. The man is series creator Masanobu Endoh. [[{{Pun}} Yes]], that does mean there's a "'''dead End'''oh" in the room labeled "Dead End".
