* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: There's no way a game like this, with all it's bright and colorful, family-friendly, TotallyRadical hip-hop aesthetics could've been made outside of the early 90's (which is probably part of the reason why ''Mission to Earth'' flopped so hard.)

* GoddamnBats: Wahini, the hula woman, has a tendency to cause paralysis in the form of a contagious hula dance. Cupids can mess up the controls with their arrows, and stay out of range from normal attacks.
** Tornados are even worse. They won't kill you (so they're proper GoddamnBats), but they ''do'' pick you up, carry you around randomly for a while, and more than likely drop you off over open space, so you fall back down to the previous level.
** The Moleman/Dogman. He doesn't hurt you, but he will remove A LOT of presents from you, and moves very quickly. Oh, and he mostly appears in [[QuicksandSucks quicksand levels]] where your moving speed is drastically lowered.

Wahini, the hula woman, has a tendency to cause paralysis in the form of a contagious hula dance. Not what you want when there's Demonic Spiders about. It's random too; you might be lucky and walk right by, or you might get into three or four cycles of dancing without a break.

** The Phantom Ice Cream Truck shares almost everything bad about the Lawnmower Men. It's not quite as aggressive (still very much so), but it can teleport, isn't slowed down by road, and does even more damage.

* DemonicSpiders: The Lawnmower Men, The Chicken Infantry, The Ice Cream Truck and the Mailbox Monsters in the original. Lawnmower Men move very fast on grass, are difficult to outsmart, and do extremely high damage. The Chicken Infantry fire harmful tomatoes from their cannon, with longer range than your own. The Ice Cream Truck is extremely fast, can teleport, and is almost impossible to avoid without item assistance, and the Mailbox Monster, the worst enemy in the game, disguises itself as a helpful mailbox from where you can order presents, and attacks you if you get too close.
** The Boogie Men are the worst. They're faster than you, they're ''invisible'' (aside from the occasional shadow appearing for a split-second and only when they move), they're ''everywhere'' on the higher levels, and exist on some lower levels unlike the other demonic spiders -- combined with the lack of MercyInvincibility, the sound of "BOOGIE BOOGIE BOOGIE" is almost inevitably followed by the sound of a thrown controller. The Boogie Men's preferred terrain is sand, which TJ & E move slowly on, unless they are walking along an edge. Being on the edge means one "BOOGIE BOOGIE BOOGIE" will knock you down to the previous level, but that may be preferable to being caught in a CycleOfHurting. Unless you fall into an area next to ''two'' Boogie Men.

** But the Lawnmower Men are far worse. Their sheer speed combined with the aforementioned lack of MercyInvincibility basically translates running into one of these guys into a OneHitKill. As if that wasn't bad enough, they'll still chase you after you die, so unless you have a present that enables a speedy getaway, once your [[MercyInvincibility after-death invincibility]] wears off, chances are you'll just [[ClassicVideoGameScrewYous die]] '' again''. This is enough to cause said thrown controllers to go through televisions. All of a sudden, the pits that take you to the previous level, normally an extremely annoying thing to happen, become your best friend. The only mitigating factor is they move a little slower on road.
** More on the mailbox monsters: they show their eyes at random intervals so if you wait around them long enough, they'll eventually reveal themselves. This actually makes them ''worse'' because if you camp out for 30 seconds, you might just foolishly assume that there's no way that can be a mailbox monster.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The last scene to Level 10 on ''Panic on Funkotron''. After you've captured all the earthlings, you have to go through a giant maze level called "Qwerpwacky...What?" with all the NPC's guiding you out. It's never referenced again after you finally get to the rocket pad.
