* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Part of the game's commercial failure is sometimes attributed to this. The art and story are cute and comical, and there's a definite hint of GirlsNeedRoleModels behind the mostly-female, all ass-kicking cast. But [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar the crap gone past the radar,]] the difficulty during the later stages, and the sheer sexiness of the cast seems a bit odd.

** After Way Forward released the ''Half-Genie Hero'' trailer that featured a brief, well-animated scene of a giant mermaid boss you needed to unshackle by breaking her chains, said giant mermaid has become rather prominent in fanart.

* FoeYay: Invoked between Shantae and Risky. The opening scene of Pirate's Curse alone, with the bathtub, seems to indicate Risky has an interest in Shantae. Shantae, on the other hand, keeps trying to turn Risky to her side. While such personal level interest is part of the genre, Shantae and Risky seem to cross the line. Especially as Risky's very plan seems to hinge on Shantae being Shantae. Indeed, the ending of Risky's Revenge seeems to play with the concept. Risky is talking about stripping Shantae of her powers, but with the line break being where it is, it becomes "Strip you(line break)of your powers." That has to be intentional, since there is more than enough room to put the line break anywhere else.

Added DiffLines:

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: The girls often wear [[{{Stripperiffic}} incredibly revealing outfits]], so this trope isn't really too much of a surprise.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: The main criticism toward ''Risky's Revenge''. The map is quiete small and there are only two dungeons.

SurprisinglySimilarCharacters: Shantae has a lot in common with [[VideoGame/FreedomPlanet Sash Lilac]]. Let's see: they're both [[ActionGirl Action Girls]] whose main form of attack is their [[PurpleIsPowerful purple]] PrehensileHair, they're both descendants of a mysterious race that's no longer around, remain incredibly selfless despite having spotty reputations by the public, and they're both friends with playful green girls who are a bit more morally grey than they are. Rottytops works with Risky to get Shantae's brain once, while Carol temporarily defects after being fed up with Lilac's ChronicHeroSyndrome and is a thief. Taking into account the fact that they're both trying to stop the villain from getting a precious artifact to use for nefarious purposes and this might start to bleed into SurprisinglySimilarStories as well.

ThatOneAttack: ''Pirate's Curse'''s final boss can launch a row of gigantic bouncing cannonballs. There's almost no room for error in dodging the damn things since they have faster gravity than everything else in the entire ''series''.
