* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: As always with Sunsoft games, the soundtrack is fantastic.
* GoodBadBug: By collecting any secret weapon, you can use the secret weapon of all characters by simply switching character in mid-charge while still holding the button. This means you can delay collecting Gil's bombs until just before you head to the dark area, but makes [[MinimalistRun low percent completion]] slightly more painful, as by utilizing this trick the bombs are the only Secret Weapon you MUST collect. See SequenceBreaking below for why this can get painful.
* NauseaFuel: You see those white ropes that dangle from floating platforms and that you use all the time? They're the platforms' drool (or possibly mucus)... Yuck!
