* TrappedInTVLand: Well, Videoland. Actually, Kevin is free to go home any time he wants, except he'd lose all his memories of Videoland in the process. As [[NarniaTime no time will have passed in the real world]] once he returns, [[IChooseToStay he chooses to stay]] until the BigBad is defeated. {{Narnia}} for gamers!

* 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.

* FakeCrossover: The episode "Misadventures in Robin Hood Woods" is A few of the episodes were clearly based intended to capitalize on ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'' (which had [[VideoGame/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves a tie-in the release of licensed NES game]]), even though it isn't officially related games, but feature CaptainErsatz versions of the characters featured in those games in order to that movie. Likewise, avoid paying any excessive licensing fees.
**
"Once Upon a Time Machine" is based on the ''Puss 'n Boots'' NES video game, but Pero's design on the episode features a version of Pero who differs significantly from his official design Creator/{{Toei|Animation}}'s actual mascot.
** "I Wish I Was A Wombatman" is clearly intended
to avoid paying any licensing fees to Creator/{{Toei|Animation}} for capitalize on Sunsoft's ''Batman'' video game, which in turn was based on the use of [[Film/{{Batman}} Tim Burton movie]], although the character.character of Wombatman appeared much earlier in "The Most Dangerous Game Master" as part of a throwaway gag.
** "Misadventures in Robin Hood Woods" is based on ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves'', which had [[VideoGame/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves a tie-in NES game]]. Since the story of ''Robin Hood'' is public domain anyway

* AdaptationalVillainy: Simon's not the only ''Castlevania'' character to get the shit end of the stick. Here, Alucard starts out on the heroes' side but proves to be a villain, which a complete 180 from his characterization in the games.
* AdaptationalWimp: Simon, to an embarrassing extent. For example, in the games, he was so badass that he single-handedly traversed through a demonic hell castle, killed Dracula, then brought him back to life so he could kill him again.

** King Hippo appears as one of Mother Brain's henchmen; in ''VideoGame/PunchOut'', he was hardly as mean as Little Mac's other opponents, even offering him out to lunch.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/PunchOut'', King Hippo was a behemoth to fight against, but in ''Captain N'', he received this treament due to politics about throwing punches in a kids cartoon.


Added DiffLines:

* AscendedExtra: in ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'', Eggplant Wizards were but regular Underworld enemies who could change the player into an eggplant; in ''Captain N'' he's one of Mother Brain's henchmen.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasyHelmetEnforcement: One of the weirdest examples ever in "The Big Game". Mega Man wears a helmet when doing extreme sports like his teammates, ''even though he obviously has on a helmet that he never takes off''.

* NarmCharm: This trope and the very premise of the show (kid gets warped into the world of video games and meets many NES characters) are arguably the only reason this show has the admittedly small following it does.

* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: What other show exists where you can expect characters from {{Castlevania}}, MegaMan, PunchOut, KidIcarus, {{Metroid}}, LegendOfZelda, DonkeyKong, DragonQuest1, TheAdventuresofBayouBilly, {{Faxanadu}}, FinalFantasy1, and WizardsAndWarriors to show up at one point or another? It's just too bad most of them are InNameOnly.
