* NoPlotNoProblem: In the original GameBoyColor game, Toki Tori's siblings were stolen away by a tornado that was implied to be controlled by some evil force. Later releases ignore this and the eggs just seem to have gotten lost for no real reason.

A sequel was released in April 2013 on WiiU eShop, with a Steam version released in July 2013. It is much more ambitious than its predecessor, with big worlds and some Metroidvania elements. Tools have been replaced by manipulating the environment (creatures, nature, artifacts, etc.) to help you explore the levels and collect tokens instead of eggs.

The game has developed something of a cult following, helped in large part by its multiple re-releases, in particular its {{Steam}} release, which added a LevelEditor so that fans could finally put together their own Easter egg hunts.

Toki Tori's premise is straightforward. Using a limited number of tools (ranging from the suitably named [[FreezeRay Freeze-o-matic]] to the unimposing [[BoringYetPractical Bubble Suit]], Toki Tori has to gather up his lost and unhatched brothers and sisters (originally swept away by a tornado). The game starts slow but can be deceptively challenging on the later levels and has developed something of a cult following by the sixth or so re-release (helped in large part by {{Steam}}). Two Tribes has even taken to adding a couple new levels now and again to celebrate Toki Tori's expanding fan base on Steam. They also added a whole new world to help promote ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' with a very special [[KaizoTrap final level]]. A LevelEditor was finally released so that fans can put together their own Easter egg hunts.

* OneHitPointWonder: Enemies and spikes both stop Toki Tori in his tracks.
* ResetButton: The first game's Steam release introduced the Rewind function as an AntiFrustrationFeature, so the player doesn't have to restart an entire level if they render a puzzle unsolvable or become trapped in a bottomless pit. In that same vein, the second game has the Rewind melody (see MagicMusic below), which will return Toki to the previous checkpoint.

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Most of ways Toki Tori can die (being crushed, electrocuted, burnt in lava, etc.) can also be inflicted on the harmless birds, bugs, and frogs that inhabit the game world. In a few cases, this wanton animal abuse is [[CrueltyIsTheOnlyOption required for progress]], or will earn an achievement.
