* OffModel: Not that the series' animation quality was good per say, but there are plenty of notable examples. Including the entirety of "How's Bayou" and the aforementioned change in art style in season three. One could even make a DrinkingGame out of how many times Lana's pauldrons were miscolored.

* OriginalGeneration: Lana isn't from any game. Also, Mega Man was given a female counterpart -- not Roll as you might expect, but the pink-sporting Mega Girl.

* FakeCrossover: The episode "Misadventures in Robin Hood Woods" is clearly based on ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' (which had [[VideoGame/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves a tie-in NES game]]), even though it isn't officially related to that movie.

Likewise, "Once Upon a Time Machine" is based on the ''Puss 'n Boots'' NES video game, but Pero's design on the episode differs from his official design to avoid paying any licensing fees to Creator/{{Toei|Animation}} for the use of the character.

Added DiffLines:

* MoneySpider: Enemies sometimes turn into money, treasure and other power-ups when they die, which is as expected with this being the world of videogames.

Once there, Kevin learns that he is to fulfill a prophecy as "Captain N", a savior sent to save Videoland from the forces of evil, led by the [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors Audrey II]]-[[HeyItsThatVoice esque]] Mother Brain (the main villain from ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}''). Joining him are Videoland's sovereign Princess Lana, VideoGame/MegaMan, [[VideoGame/KidIcarus Kid]] [[IAmNotShazam Icarus]], Simon Belmont from ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'', and later UsefulNotes/GameBoy. Kevin/Captain N and the gang would defend Videoland from Mother Brain and her henchmen, who included King Hippo from ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' and The Eggplant Wizard from ''Kid Icarus''. Other frequently occurring villains were Dr. Wily of ''VideoGame/MegaMan'' fame (who was probably the only semi-competent villain in the entire series), a LargeHam version of Dracula from ''Castlevania'', and a Film/KingKong-like VideoGame/DonkeyKong.

* ClipShow: "When Mother Brain Rules", which is missing from the [=DVD=] sets. A clip show in the purest sense of the term, this episode has no new footage whatsoever, and no framing story to justify the clips. Even stranger, all the voices were missing in the clips, so it was half an hour of voiceless recycled animation with background music (and very occasional out-of-nowhere narration from Simon.) Needless to say, little kids watching it in 1991 were pretty damn confused.

* AdaptationExpansion: The comics released by ValiantComics were altogether better written and spent quite some time exploring the relationships between the characters instead of the show's simplistic "game world of the week" plotlines. And they actually remembered that ''VideoGame/{{Metroid}}'' has a heroine, and other characters besides Mother Brain.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Considering the spotty research the game's known for it might well be coincidence, but one episode reveals that the one game even Captain N couldn't beat was ''The Adventures of Bayou Billy'', which as any NES fan will tell you is one of the hardest and cheapest games on the system.

Many of the characters were [[InNameOnly nothing like their original counterparts]]. It was also notable for adding Link and Zelda from the ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda'' cartoon series as supporting cast members following the cancellation of the ''[[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioBros Super Mario Bros. Super Show]]''. It lasted for three seasons and was ScrewedByTheNetwork due to NBC's departure from the SaturdayMorningCartoon genre, and its time slot was replaced by local news after the Saturday morning block was shut down.

** One of the most drastic examples is the series' version of [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Kraid]] who looks like [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Captain_N_Kraid_5174.jpg this]]. He hardly bears any resemblance to even his original NES appearance, let alone his later, more iconic appearance from ''Super Metroid''.
