** For players complaining that ''Half-Genie Hero'' is too easy, Wayforward released a brand-new Hardcore mode deliberately aiming for the old-school NintendoHard feel.

* ThatOneAchievement: The "Run, Run, Rottytops!" segment in ''Pirate's Curse'' may take some trial and error but isn't overly infuriating... unless you want a trophy in the console and Steam ports by clearing the entire thing without taking a single hit!

** "Learn to Fly" in ''Half-Genie Hero Friends to the End'' requires avoiding one of Sky's boomerang attack birds for 60 seconds straight, requiring her to consistently jump over her own projectile without causing it to curve at an angle that's impossible to avoid. It's got so bad that the most consistent method of obtaining this achievement is to take advantage of an out-of-bounds glitch that keeps Sky falling continuously offscreen without dying, which means her bird can't catch up with her.

** While Nega-Shantae didn't get her own story chapter in the base game for ''Half-Genie Hero'' (as the Kickstarter was funded just shy of that particular goal), she's slated to be the main antagonist of the Friends to the End DLC.

* 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.

** ''Half-Genie Hero's'' Obliterate dance does 25 damage to everything on the screen, every time you use it (your other attacks normally do between 1-10 damage per hit), with no cooldown. The drawback is its Magic cost, which is, again, easy to manage. Bring a stack of Mega Potions, and you can bust all the locks holding the Giga Mermaid in two hits! You can wipe out Ammo Baron's flunkies! You can hit all of the Tinkerbrain's breakers at once and turn its first phase into a ZeroEffortBoss!

Use it to destroy all the locks holding the Giga Mermaid in two hits! You can wipe out hits, then use Flamethrower to defeat her second stage in seconds. Wait until Ammo Baron's flunkies! You can hit Baron summons all of his flunkies, then Obliterate them all at once. Instead of hitting the Tinkerbrain's breakers one at a time, hit them all at once and turn its first phase into a ZeroEffortBoss!with Obliterate.

* HarsherInHindsight: Back when the [[Website/{{Kickstarter}} Kickstarters]] for both games were first up, [[http://24.media.tumblr.com/0ab008eba03eba0c00b72820506c537e/tumblr_mtajazO9g41rjv5flo1_500.png two]] [[http://31.media.tumblr.com/8832ef98c53b8312507ab5ff23abb734/tumblr_mtajazO9g41rjv5flo2_1280.png pictures]] of Shantae high-fiving [[VideoGame/MightyNo9 Beck]] were made by both WayForward and Comcept. This led to backers of both games becoming FriendlyFandoms, and along came a slew of fan-art between the two. Unfortunately, ''VideoGame/MightyNo9'' fell into a bunch of controversies (two of the most infamous being the constant delays and the "Masterclass trailer"), and soon both Shantae fans and [=MN9=] backers started to grow disgust towards the game, leading the once friendly fan-art turn to Shantae trying to ignore Beck. With this in mind, this makes the above two pictures extremely awkward.

** ''Friends To The End'' offers all kinds of this for Shantae, given that we don't know how much of the memories we see are her own and how much [[spoiler: is being twisted by her dark magic]].

** Shantae herself. While there's no doubt that she's a good person, one has to wonder exactly what kind of heroine she is. Is she really [[IncorruptiblePurePureness as pure and kind-hearted as she seems]], or, considering the way [[LudicrousGibs she kills some enemies]] and how cruel she can be to people like Bolo, are there [[KnightTemplar sides]] of [[AntiHero her]] we don't know? This is most prominent in the original Game Boy Color adventure. If anything, she's mellowed out over the years.

** The game has a not-insignificant Japanese fanbase despite never officially being released there. The combination of {{Animesque}}-[[{{UsefulNotes/Kawaisa}} Kawaii]]-{{Fanservice}}-{{Metroidvania}} likely has something to do with it.

There's even an official [[http://www.volks.co.jp/en/charagumin/chara139.html/ Shantae Chargumin]] figure that specifically mentions how she has "passionate fans in Japan also."

** Hell, even Ken Sugimori is a fan of the series. Who is he, you ask? Oh, [[SarcasmMode nobody important]], just, y'know, the art director and character designer of '''[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} POKEMON]]!!!'''
