* 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''.

** "So what's with that V-Watch on your arm, huh? You think you're some kind of VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} or something?"
* Joe himself bears somewhat of a resemblance to Proto Man from the same series, such as Joe's helmet looking similar and having a color scheme of red.

** It's even more hilarious when you realize the narrator [[HeyItsThatVoice is]] ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Jecht]]!''

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience[=/=]CompetitiveBalance: After beating the first game on normal (Adults) difficulty -- and the harder ones -- with Joe, three characters are PromotedToPlayable. They mostly have the same moves as Joe, but have their own stats and special abilities.
** [[color:red:'''Joe''']] - JackOfAllStats
** [[color:aqua:'''Silvia''']] - FragileSpeedster (she's faster than Joe, Alastor, and CB, her VFX bar lasts longer than anyone else, and she has the weakest physical constitution, causing her to take double damage).
** [[color:purple:'''Alastor''']] - LightningBruiser (VFX bar has to be activated manually a la [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Devil Trigger]] and drains constantly when he's in Henshin mode, has a longer jump, can adjust his falling speed while in Henshin mode, stronger than the other three characters, but not as fast as Silvia).
** [[color:blue:'''Captain Blue''']] - MightyGlacier (cannot see skull marks regardless of difficulty, has the ability to hover across the screen indefinitely, can jump twice as high as the others, but lacks a DoubleJump, and is stronger than Joe and Silvia).
** [[color:red:'''Dante''']] ([=PS2=] version only) - LightningBruiser (he's not as fast as Silvia, but still stronger than everyone else in the entire game)



* FragileSpeedster: Silvia in both ''Viewtiful Joe 1'' and ''[=VJ2=]''. On Adults (the default difficulty), '''she'll receive four times as much damage.''' The first game compensates this by giving her a lot of speed, while the second game gives her ranged attacks.
** In the second game, Silvia's speed is toned ''way'' down, but she no longer receives extra damage.
