* XMeetsY: It's ''Franchise/KamenRider'' meets ''Film/LastActionHero'' story-wise, with gameplay similar to ''VideoGame/KungFuMaster''.

* RedHerring: At the end of ''2'', a new villain shows up in the real world to wreak havoc. Jet Black says that the newest adventure will reveal [[spoiler:how he found the Black V-Watch and Black Film]]. Yet in ''Double Trouble'' the story picks up with Joe, Blue, Silvia, and Jasmine filming a movie. The two plots are almost completely unrelated, [[spoiler:besides some possible insight on Jet's StartOfDarkness]].
** Perhaps not. ''Double Trouble'' is more of a spin-off. Also, the first game ''did'' mention the Earth would have to be saved [[spoiler:three]] times.

** It's [[WildMassGuessing possible]] that [[spoiler:being part of Movieland as the BigBad]] binds him to the associated tropes [[ButThouMust whether he wants to play them straight or not]], the way the other characters act according to their own {{Troperiffic}} roles as TheHero, TheRival, FemmeFatale, GoldfishPoopGang, ect.

In '''the sequel''', Joe and Silvia must stop the alien Gedow from taking over Movie Land and the real world.

A '''third game''', subtitled ''Double Trouble'', was released on the Nintendo DS. It has similar gameplay, but new moves which take advantage of the double screen.

** Ultimately subverted due to the fact it came four years beforehand, but HumongousMecha Six Majin [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann has a red design, with one helmeted face on top and one face on the torso with a V-Shaped decal in front of it.]] Six-Six in ''[=VJ2=]'' could be seen as an analogue to one of Gurren Lagann's [[SerialEscalation upgraded forms]].(actually this predates Gurren by 3 years so its an homage on gurren laganns part)

** The boss form of [[spoiler:Captain Blue]] appears very similar to King Mondo/Emperor Bacchus Wrath from ''PowerRangersZeo''/''ChourikiSentaiOhranger''.

* AirborneMooks: Verdy enemies.

* AirborneMooks: Verdy enemies.enemies in the first game.



** The wreck of the submarine that Joe destroyed in the first game is seen in ''2'' during the Six Machine section of the fifth level, along with a small liferaft filled with Biankys trying to get rescued.



** Played with in the third level of ''Double Trouble''. Vanilla is a stylish, tiny little commander (about the size of a figurine) who is in charge of defending a giant movie studio... where everything is also appropriately tiny, obviously to utilize the MiniatureEffect and PeopleInRubberSuits methods of filmmaking. When she transforms using her heroic power, she becomes Alter Woman, an acrobatic, beam-blasting wonder, who looks just like a female Series/{{Ultraman}}... and now, 50 times bigger, is barely taller than Joe.

** In the first game (but only in the UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube version), Joe will whistle a few notes from the famous ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros.'' theme if you have him bounce a Shocking Pink for a few seconds before throwing it.

Added DiffLines:

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Many of the GEDOW enemies in the second game are, with minor design changes, functionally identical to those of JADOW from the first. Ditto for MADOW in ''Double Trouble''.
