* GoddamnedBats:
** The jetpack biots. God-flapjacks-dammit, they ''constantly'' and '''endlessly'' swarm you whenever you're in a map where biots are the local grunts. And they are, in 70% of the available maps!
** On a minor note, the mini drones. Unlike the example above, who flies in, fires either a single shot or a salvo, and then goes away, the mini drones will NOT let go of you until destroyed. To make things worse, their hitbox is as small as they are, which makes hitting them an exercise in frustration, and their color scheme blends in with a lot of the backgrounds available, so you'll probably won't notice one nearby you until they open fire. Luckily they're kind of a rare sight. They can also be defeated with Homing Missiles -- which can only be acquired by defeating the boss of Chapter 3, who uses ''three'' of those drones at all times to attack the player!

!!The animated series



* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: This series got an even more obscure (partly due to being released very close to the launch of the next console generation) videogame for the SNES and Sega Genesis. It's a Metroidvania shooter with plenty of weapons, with emphasis on the use of a GrapplingHookPistol. There's a lot of areas and subareas to explore, and a branching plot with MultipleEndings. A great but obscure game for both systems. Even if you don't know the series, you owe it to yourself to try it.

* {{Tearjerker}}: Part of kid sidekick's Sparks reason for hanging around with the Phantom was to find out what happened to his parents, who were both abducted by Maximum Inc. Eventually, Sparks finds them in episode 12: The Gauntlet. And it is ''heartbreaking''. [[spoiler: Maximum Inc. had murdered his parents and downloaded their minds into a super computer to act as the defense system for the Cyberville City project. Sparks, the Phantom and Guran to infiltrate the city, with Sparks finding the computer containing his folks mentalities, only for the defenses to begin trying to kill the Phantom and Guran. Since the system automatically reacts to anything the parents perceive even might be a threat, the parents can't intentionally save the heroes. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=S4m52skuwPs#t=1066 So there's only one way Sparks can save his friends and free his parents.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=S4m52skuwPs#t=1171 The quiet pain Sparks' voice actor conveys is just heart-wrenching.]] ]]

* CompleteMonster: Rebecca Madison, naturally enough, given that she plans to exterminate some 90 percent of all human life, with the remaining 10 percent being safe and sound inside her Cyberville citadel (and consisting of those she personally chooses to live inside Cyberville). There's also the matter of [[spoiler:[[FateWorseThanDeath what she did to Danny's parents]]]] and TheReveal in the final episode that [[spoiler:[[MoralEventHorizon she orchestrated the Sector Zero crash and set up the Phantom to attack her own husband under the false impression that Max Sr. had placed poison in the tanks at the station, when in fact Rebecca was the one who did it beforehand]]]].

* SeasonalRot: In what is possibly one of the quickest onsets of this trope ever, the latter half of season 2 is noticeably more episodic and less well-written than the rest of the series. The series finale in particular feels rushed and incomplete. This was caused initially by ExecutiveMeddling trying to make the show more [[AnimationAgeGhetto accessible to kids]], then by the show's production staff learning that [[CutShort cancellation was imminent]] and scrambling to give the series a proper ending. Despite this, many still consider the series to have been TooGoodToLast overall.
** At least it ''got'' a proper ending. That's a lot more than can be said for many other series that [[CutShort faced similar circumstances]].
