** Jim's reaction to Princess What's-Her-Name in the first game's ending is a big one to ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood'', more so in the Special Edition which adds and extended animation.

* InCaseOfBossFightBreakGlass: Inverted. The game has a level where you have to carefully guide an underwater vehicle around. More cracks appear in the glass every time you hit a wall. Oh, and there's a time limit.

* InsectQueen: From the game and [[WesternAnimation/EarthwormJim its respective cartoon]], there is Queen Pulsating Bloated Festering Sweaty Pus-Filled Malformed Slug-for-a-Butt, who's a queen termite with a very squicky self-explanatory name.

** Part II uses this a lot, really. Both the melancholy first movement and the frenetic third movement of [[Creator/LudwigVanBeethoven Beethoven's]] "Moonlight Sonata" appear, and both are strangely appropriate for the stages they play in.

* SatiatingSandwich: The coveted Chip Butty in ''[=EWJ=] 2'' can increase Jim's health up to 200%. The sandwich is presumably a chip butty because [[InherentlyFunnyWords the names of other of sandwiches aren't as much fun to say]].

Added DiffLines:

* IdleAnimation: The first two games are standout examples of this trope, but in terms of quantity as well as quality. In the first game alone, Jim will do things like jump rope with his head, flex his muscles, or [[IJustShotMarvinInTheFace fail to practice trigger discipline.]]
