** This game was the first LP ever done by Music/{{Rawrzaur}}, all the way back on his previous channel of ZeroMegamanX. He has gone on record during one of his live streams as saying that the original reason he even started [=LPing=] in the first place was to prove that he could actually beat this game.

* FollowTheLeader: The game is actually based off a Japanese flash game called ''Jinsei Owata no Daibouken'', also known as ''The Life-Ending Adventure''. [[WordOfGod As Kayin himself says]] [[http://kayin.pyoko.org/iwbtg/faq.php on the faq]], "I played a 2chan flash game that was stupid hard and thought, '[[LetsSeeYouDoBetter Hm, I can do better.]]'" Amazingly, ''Owata'' was [[ObviousBeta unfinished]] when Kayin played it. When the game was actually completed (long after the release of IWBTG), its final section [[spoiler: [[RecursiveAdaptation is literally taken from I Wanna Be The Guy itself]], ''[[{{Crossover}} with the Kid as the]] FinalBoss!'']]
** And of course, there are many fangames, all of course following the leader.
*** When I Wanna be the Love Trap was made, it has a certain boss. The game showed a picture of Hatsune Miku, and played The Disappearence of Hatsune Miku while forcing you to dodge Delicious Fruit of all colors, as well as negi. Many people then started putting similar segments in their fangames, using other Japanese Vocaloid songs and forcing you to dodge for the entire song. Many fangames were made with nothing but these "avoidance bosses".
