* BlindIdiotTranslation: The translation starts to suffer around when you get to the Water Temple, with grammar errors and pronoun trouble here and there. An earlier and probably the worst example is Mizuno saying that the Hot Powder and Cold Powder "boosts damage due to heat or cold", which may cause players not to use them - why would you use an item that makes you take ''more'' damage from hot and cold? Actually, it turns out it was just translated badly - they actually make you ''impervious'' to heat or cold.

* ViolationOfCommonSense: There's a sidequest where you have to [[spoiler:fall into a very specific spot in the huge pit in Pipe Area]] in order to find a clump of mud with a Miner's Ring in it. Falling in the incorrect area is an immediate GameOver. At least DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist.

* AccidentalInnuendo: "You've got some good stuff! Let me have some of it!" He's talking about the Power Coal, but out of context it can sound like he's talking about drugs or something.

* VocalDissonance: Apparently, the voice actor for the Water Pig didn't realize that she was female, even if she refers to herself with feminine pronouns and has a clearly female-shaped body and [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics lipstick.]] Mizuno has a mild case of this too - she's supposed to be young and cute, but the voice actress made her sound like an old woman.

* FatBastard: The Earth Pig in the sequel is really fat compared to his colleagues. If his claims are to be believed, he's 78% body fat.



* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: There are 4 different colors of InexplicableTreasureChests: red, green, blue, and white. Random people all over the world have the keys for them, and you need to complete quests involving them in order to get them.



--> Quick! Tabby went missing! She was captured by the Evil Pigs because they wanted her necklace for no reason whatsoever! You've got to save her by capturing them in [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience colored purses]]! You may also deviate from your objective to do ridiculously unnecessary quests that add nothing to the story whatsoever, like transporting cement in a trolley, washing over sized chickens up, and guiding a worm through a series of booby-trapped seesaws so it can eat a leaf!

* InexplicableTreasureChests: They're floating around everywhere, and you have to find the keys to open them. They contain everything from gems to lunch boxes to squirrel suits, and more.



** Make sure that you have ''every'' side quest you want to do completed, because once you enter the door with the final Evil Pig Gate, time will stop and you can only finish the main story.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Baron is needed to [[spoiler:open the last Evil Pig's gate.]] However, if he had not been given all of the healing items, or even if he was ignored entirely, he will be given to Tomba, fully grown, by the Million Year Old Man, who mentions he had been looking after Baron.

''Tomba!'', known as ''Tombi!'' in Europe and ''Ore! Tomba'' in Japan, is a cult-favorite TwoAndAHalfD adventure series composed of two games starring a pink-haired jungle boy. Tomba must fight the Evil Swine, who have turned the world into a much darker place through the power of their own evil magic, using platforming skills across a fairly large game world.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The "Iron Boomerang"; It has good range and can flat-out kill most if not all normal enemies in game. It can even kill a "[=NeedleGator=]" while it's still in it's shell (those ''extremely'' annoying blue alligator-like enemies with spiky brown shells in the Stormy Mountain area), but you can't even get it until just about the end of the game, and the earlier-acquired [=GrappleJack=] has many more uses.

* BalefulPolymorph: The Evil Pig Curse over Baccus Village has turned everyone into mice. The Evil Earth Pig in the second game turned the people in Circus Village into pigs - they can't even speak the human language anymore, requiring Tomba to get a Pig Suit in order to understand them.
