* BossBanter: Sausage Santa taunts the player with hot dog puns all throughout his battle.
-->'''Sausage Santa:''' I WILL RELISH YOUR DEMISE!



* MythologyGag: The subtitle for [=Runner2=] is a direct translation of TheForeignSubtitle for the original BIT.TRIP RUNNER's Japanese release.



* PaperThinDisguise: "Cheesethröat," the mysterious informant that warns [=CommanderVideo=] and [=CommandGirlVideo=] of Timbletot's return at the beginning of ''[=RUNNER3=]'', is very clearly just Whetfahrt Cheesebörger with a trenchcoat and fake mustache.



* PowerOfLove: The Commander and his team believe this fighting Mingrawn Timbletot. [[spoiler: During ''FATE'', the Commander abandons his ideals and kills both himself and Mingrawn Timbletot in a rage]].



%%* StockNessMonster: Appears in the Supernature.



%%* ThatRussianSquatDance: One of Commander Video's dances. ATLAS and Quote can perform these as well.

* BadSanta: The boss of Foodland is a robotic Santa Claus obsessed with meat products named Sausage Santa.



* CallBack: The BIT.TRIP in ''[=Runner2=]'' is chock full of references to ''BEAT'', ''CORE'', and ''VOID''. You can even see scenes from those games float by in the background of certain levels.
** "The Milky Way" in ''[=Runner3=]'' features a giant fish that leaps from the background into the foreground, similar to the ones found in Tenacity in ''RUNNER''.



* SpiderTank: Timbletot rides one in the final boss level.

Added DiffLines:

* SyntheticVoiceActor: Sausage Santa's voice is provided by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_Automatic_Mouth S.A.M.]], a primitive voice synthesizer from the early '80s.


Added DiffLines:

** In the opening of [=Runner3=], [=CommanderVideo=] and [=CommandGirlVideo=] are summoned to a shady alley known for its "seedy clientele." This phrase is accompanied by an image of various seeds (sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds) with sunglasses and suspicious expressions.

* AsHimself: Creator/CharlesMartinet, who serves as TheNarrator.

to:

* AsHimself: Creator/CharlesMartinet, who serves as TheNarrator. In [=Runner3=], he gets PromotedToPlayable as a cartoon caricature of himself.



** [=Runner3=] features [[VideoGame/ShovelKnight Shovel Knight]], [[VideoGame/BrutalLegend Eddie Riggs]], and [[VideoGame/WoahDave Dave]].



* {{Metaphorgotten}}: On a story-wide scale. The other six games are, according to WordOfGod, a metaphor for a human's life cycle. With this game's cartoony atmosphere, humorous characters, and overall tongue-in-cheek attitude, it's hard to see how it fits into the metaphor.

** [=Runner3=] features by far the most bizarre example: Creator/CharlesMartinet himself goes from narrator to playable character!



* ShoutOut: ''[=Runner2=]'' has too many to list, from the characters' dances to level names.

** The boss of each song simulates an old UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} or Arcade game. ''BEAT'' had a sideways game of ''BreakOut'' and an ''actual game of VideoGame/{{Pong}} against an AI'', and ''CORE'' had strange versions of ''VideoGame/MissileCommand'' and ''VideoGame/{{Asteroids}}''.

* UnexpectedGameplayChange: ''BEAT'' has you playing a game of ''BreakOut'' for one boss and an ''authentic game of VideoGame/{{Pong}}'' for another, at which points the rhythm aspect of the game would be completely set aside. Though if you listen closely, the bouncing of the ball from the walls and paddles does kinda follow the rhythm.

All right, let's put this as straight as possible: you are playing UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} games [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs while high on acid]]. While listening to {{NES}} music. Nothing could be more awesome.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Conspicuously averted in ''FLUX'', in which every beat is the same color, including the ones that bounce back and must be hit again an instant later.
