* SequenceBreaking: It's possible, albeit very difficult (think subpixel positioning and frame-perfect jumping, making it pretty much a [=TAS-only=] trick), to skip Shades entirely.

* SequenceBreaking: {{Railroading}}: As soon as you go left upon starting the game, you can find a closed off area with an arrow indicating you're supposed to go up it, but until you get Bop Louie's suction cups that let you climb the nearby wall, it's a dead end, [[WhenAllElseFailsGoRight forcing you to go right.]]

* WakeUpCallBoss: The UFO boss, the first of the three bosses you fight for a key. It's hotbox is smaller than the other bosses, it can do some nasty damage to you if you collide with it, and it's combo of spawning enemies while moving in an arc can make it frustrating. It also has a second phase, which isn't hard per se, but it's ability to turn invisible can give it a chance to land a cheap hit on you.

* OpeningTheSandbox: There's not too many areas you can go in the game at first, but once you find the Suction Cups for Bop Louie, which allows him to scale ''any'' wall in the game, the bulk of the game opens up for you to explore!

* MeaningfulName: ''Freeon''-Leon's special ability is to freeze enemies with his icy breath and turn them into blocks to be used as platforms. (Freon is [[DontExplainTheJoke the gas used in refrigerators]]). Gil, of course, is a frog that can swim underwater.

Added DiffLines:

* JokeCharacter: Gil is the most useless out of all the four characters. You only need him to get through underwater areas, and he is almost useless on land due to his slow speed and lousy jumping. Even underwater, he has terrible vertical jumping speed, making it very hard to for him to attack enemies with a stomp. On top of that, whereas the other characters get an attack with their secret weapons, Gil only gets a bomb that's used to blow up some obstructive blocks--it can't even be used to harm enemies.

Added DiffLines:

* BlackoutBasement: One of the areas preceding a Key Guardian is a pitch black cavern, where you have a find a very well hidden light switch just near its opening in order to progress.


Added DiffLines:

* GottaCatchThemAll: Once you find all three of your friends, Bop-Louie's suction cups and Gil's bombs, your goal is to find three keys (protected by three guardians) in order to unlock a gate and access the final boss.

Added DiffLines:

* ZeroEffortBoss: One of the Key Guardians, a Knight, is already a fairly easy boss if you attack it with Shade's special attack. But then it cues its second phase--where it turns into a harmless cat that stands in place and cries. It won't even try to attack you as you stomp on its head.

* {{Metroidvania}}: Without the abilities of Bop-Louie's friends, you won't go far in the game.
