* ContestedSequel: All of the games after the second one, especially 3D
* WhatAnIdiot: In the endgame of the first game, [[spoiler: Simon uses [[BigBad Sordid's]] own magic wand to turn Sordid into a statue. So far, so good. Then he throws the wand in the lava to destroy it, which will turn all Sordid's statue-fied victims back to normal. Yeah... didn't think that through, did you, Simon?]]
