* LostForever:
** In the first game:
*** Break the rolling Spiked Barrel on the Mushroom Forest bridge and that's ''it!'' The event involving that Barrel will never be fulfilled!
*** If you go straight for the Gold Medal in the racing minigame, you'll be unable to get Bronze and Silver ones afterwards.
** In the second game:
*** 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, [[spoiler:time will stop and you can only finish the main story]].
*** One of the [[HeartContainer Pots of Life]] in Kujara Ranch is well-hidden and can only be obtained before the curse is lifted.

* {{Metroidvania}}{{Metroidvania}}: You get more and more abilities and items as you progress through the game, allowing you to find secrets and solve quests that you couldn't before.



* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Baron has been TakenForGranite and left as a statue in Donglin Forest. You're supposed to use Holy Water to un-petrify him, but the thing is that this is a ''sidequest'', and thus you don't really have to free him. Even if you don't, though, he still shows up in the ending.



* RememberTheNewGuy: Both Zippo and Tabby, introduced at the start of the game. They are Tomba's friend and girlfriend, respectively, but were never even mentioned in the previous one.

* 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.
