* SillinessSwitch: Done as a game mechanic. The background has silly things happen (rain during the rap for the bathroom for example) and the music sounds more wacky and terrible if you hit the Bad or Awful ranks.

This is revealed only if you're in "Cool" mode, and if you start doing badly [[note]]she'll stomp right out of the TV frame to teach Parappa how to cook personally, and what's also curious is how she has a TV filter to her voice while speaking through the television, which goes away as soon as she comes to Parappa in person.[[/note]] (This is lampshaded by [=PaRappa=] asking her how she got out of the TV.)]]

Added DiffLines:

* AntiFrustrationFeature: The sequel has the difficulty drop during a song if you are screwing up and drop down in rank by making the lyrics more simple, which means less buttons to press or the buttons being spaced farther apart for a slower rhythm. If you do drop down in rank, you get to repeat the section again so you have a shot of recovering.

* CreatorCameo: Rodney Greenblat, the character designer of the series, has off-and-on cameo appearances throughout the games, most noticeably as a television reporter in ''[=PaRappa=] 2'', but also as the basis for the name of "Rodney State" where the characters live, and the singer of the "Jet Baby" song at the beginning of ''[=PaRappa=] 1''. Also, in a bonus scene from ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'', Ma-San is typing a letter to "Mr. Matsuura" (Masaya Matsuura is one of the game's creators).

** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d at the beginning of [=UmJammer=] Lammy; Lammy's excuse for being late to her concert was that people wanted to rap for the bathroom, and she only plays guitar. People, please leave the rapping to PaRappa!

* SplitScreen: Happens in ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'', when Lammy tries hard to fly a plane with Captain Fussenpepper in Stage 4; and in ''[=PaRappa=] 2'', when both [=PaRappa=] and Guru Ant are [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever grown big]] for the final time, while you can see Ma-san getting bored (which doubles as a FunnyBackgroundEvent), as long as you don't mess up.
