* FridgeHorror: Most of Halloween Town's residents are absent from the game. At one point, it's suggested that they're just hiding from Oogie, it's not out of the question that he Double Killed some of them during his takeover.

* MostWonderfulSound: Racking up combo's gets Jack to declare such things as ''Spine Tingling!'' ''BONE CHILLING!'' There's a wonderful energy to it that makes you feel like you're doing a great job. Even better is when you get it up to ''Horror Show'' and ''Pumpkin King.''

* NarmCharm: The very basic plot wouldn't feel out of place in a fanfic, the writing and dialogue can feel very forced at times, and the game's tone never quite seems to match up with the original film. Ultimately, though, the game itself is very solid, and seeing the characters in action again is extremely satisfying.

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: Jack's Pumpkin King form's ability to spread flame is already handy against clearing enemies, but it is very effective against most bosses, especially if one were to use a cheat code to make it so that Jack's Pumpkin King form has infinite power.

* TearJerker: The reprise of "Sally's Song".

* TearJerker: The reprise of "Sally's Song".Song", where Sally laments everyone in Halloween Town being deceived by Oogie and Jack tries to assure her that everything will be alright.
* ThatOneBoss: The final battle against Oogie can be particularly grating, especially the RhythmGame finale, since this time screwing up the button prompts causes Jack to lose health, resulting in death if the player screws up too often.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Filthy Finale.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: All of the game's dance battles, but ''A Filthy Finale.Finale'' is generally agreed to be the best of the bunch.



* {{Sequelitis}}: Downplayed. It's a solid game, but compared to the plot of the movie, the game's story is very straughtforward and uninspired. That doesn't make seeing Halloween Town in action again any less satisfying.

** The game is kicked off when Jack leaves for two months to find new and interesting discoveries to improve next year's Halloween. When he comes back, his mission is never brought up again, and we never find out if he did find anything while he was gone.
