* HellIsThatNoise:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNtnjrrXMDU Quiet]], the tune that plays in [[spoiler:Mimiga Village]] after you come out of the Waterway. ''[[WhamEpisode *Shudder*]]''
** It's even worse in [[spoiler: Santa's House, Chako's House, and the Sand Zone Residence.]]
** Your PC has a hardware synth card like a [=SoundBlaster=] X-Fi? Switch your PC to it's onboard audio instead before playing- the game music is an eardrum-splitting wreck if played through the X-Fi for some strange reason.

* FriendlyFandoms: Despite the above, ''Cave Story'' and ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' fans can often get along, complete with many crosovers in their ranks. They share similarly friendly relationships with ''VideoGame/YumeNikki'' and ''VideoGame/{{Off}}'' fans, also leading to crossovers.

* CompleteMonster: [[MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate Dr.]] Fuyuhiko [[FourEyesZeroSoul Date]], known [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep almost exclusively]] as [[BigBad The Doctor]], is a sociopathic researcher who came onto the floating island to take control of the powers of the [[ArtifactOfDoom Demon Crown]]. The Doctor is responsible for kidnapping several of the harmless native Mimigas and forcefeeding them the corruptive red flowers, mutating them into savage beasts. The Doctor has reduced the Mimiga's village to a select few survivors in doing this, and plots to use the rabid Mimiga to attack the surface world. The Doctor has his servants forcefeed the young Toroko these red flowers, ultimately leading to her death, and murders King when he tries to intervene, commenting on how "fragile" their bodies are. The Doctor is also responsible for mutating several of the island's infant dragons into undead zombies. At the end of the game, the Doctor mutates his own servant Misery for her dissent, intending to make her his puppet until the day she dies. The Doctor was an [[ItsAllAboutMe unfettered egomaniac]] who puts his pride above everything else, all the while behaving in a calm, perpetually condescending manner.

** King, especially [[spoiler: after he gives the player the Sword, one of the best weapons on a normal run, before dying from his injuries. It even has his soul! It also helps that he [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped Balrog]] just a bit beforehand]] and that he's a signified {{Badass}} even before that happens.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The game is known for its accessible and engaging gameplay and cutesy visuals. [[spoiler: It also features slavery and [[GreatOffscreenWar war]] themes, four nightmarish final bosses (The Doctor, who loses control and mutates, then him possessing the Core, Sue, and Misery, then the Heavy Press which attacks out of nowhere and is a Kaizo Trap if you don't realize what it is quickly enough, then finally Ballos, who has a horrific backstory and red, dripping, tortured faces in his head), and [[AnyoneCanDie most of the cast]] [[KillEmAll dying before your eyes]] [[CharactersDroppingLikeFlies at regular intervals.]] ''[[AC:And still goes with a calification of E10+''.]] ]]

Added DiffLines:

* UglyCute: King is not ''ugly'', but he's certainly less conventionally cute than the other Mimigas. Nevertheless, several fans think he's adorable.

* FandomRivalry: Shares a minor one with ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. Cave Story fans get annoyed when ''Undertale'' fanart appears in ''Cave Story'' Tumblr tags. It also doesn't help that trolls are accusing ''Cave Story'' for ripping off ''Undertale'' even though ''Cave Story'' was released a decade before.

* AlasPoorScrappy: Sue might qualify for some after being pummeled into submission by a gigantic frenzied Mimiga. But since she declares [[UnwantedAssistance she didn't want your help]] if you tell her you saved her, and then [[{{Hypocrite}} tells you "You're no help"]] [[BeasUnhelpfulasPossible if you tell her you didn't]], some might not feel much sympathy for her.
