The original trope was "X done wrong". Since TRS is supporting a cut, changed to the X.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* BreathWeapon: Freon can get the ability to freeze enemies with his breath late in the game.

* EyePop: One of the weirdest things in the game is Shades' special ability. He uses the hammer he finds to whack his own head, after which his eyes pop out of the sockets and ''start floating around the screen'', hitting and killing every enemy as if they were heat-seeking missiles! Unfortunately, it is the least useful ability and there are no places where it is really needed. But it sure is weird! ** Not ''that'' useless - it can hit the knight two times in one shot, or three with careful positioning and timing, whereas Bop-Louie's Secret Weapon can only hit once. So by using Shades' Secret Weapon for that fight instead, you only have to charge up two or three times in the middle of the spear rain instead of six.

* PowerUpLetdown: Gil's power up is a very slow bomb that does no damage to enemies; it only slowly blows up solid blocks, which respawn if you pause the game.

* 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. ----

* AnimateInanimateObject: Just one part of the weirdness of the setting. The platforms and projectile balls have faces. The floating platforms appear to be sleeping, but wake up when a character rides on them.

* AnthropomorphicShift: Played straight with Hebe/Bop-Louie, who went from a penguin in the Japanese original to a vaguely humanoid creature in the Western version. Averted with O-Chan/Freeon-Leon, who was changed from a cat to a dinosaur.
