The official website no longer exists, but the Wiki for the game (which really, really, REALLY, needs Wiki Magic) can be found here.

This game features the following tropes:

  • Limit Break: Punch Time Explosions.
  • Mascot Fighter
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover
  • Metaphorgotten:
    Narrator: It's Kevin Levin! And he looks like he fell from the ugly alien tree, and hit every ugly alien branch on the way down! And fell in an ugly puddle. And sat in it for a while. What I'm getting at is that he's really ugly looking.
  • Moveset Clone: The three Powerpuff Girls are mostly this, with a few differences.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Johnny Bravo's entrance animation, as well as his Synergy animation with Dracula, are a reference to him showing off how studly he is in the season 1 intro of his show. Likewise, when he's dancing with Dracula, he's doing the monkey, just like at the end of the opening.
    • Dexter's entrance animation has him trying to activate a remote control. Apparently, he never got that fixed from his cartoon's intro.
  • Oh Crap!: After the mine cart ride in the second Ben 10 level in Story mode, a Forever Knight and a Vilgax Bioid get this reaction upon encountering the Heroes.
  • Pirate: Stickybeard and the Candy Pirates from Kids Next Door AAARRRR perfect examples. There are even three kinds of Candy Pirates: the small ones that hobble around, the medium sized ones that only appear in one point in the game, and the large ones that hit harder than any of the other pirates.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Father. Go ahead and break into Dexter's lab, set the place on fire to sabotage his work, mess up his lair and the dimension jet. It's not like you sent Ben, Chowder, and Buttercup to the Powerpuff Girls' dimension where two more super-powered girls would join them.
  • Planet Heck: Endsville's Underworld.
  • Platform Fighter
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: Due to Cartoon Network's staple shows going from Slice of Life Shows to Adventure Series With superheroes and supervillains, the likes of Mac & Bloo can battle Flying Bricks, Galactic Conquerors, and Master Swordsmen on an equal level. Quite egregious in the case of Ben Tennyson, who, instead of having a Stance System with a select few of his most popular forms as one would expect, fights primarily in human form, trasforming briefly for a special attack. And he's powerful, too.
  • The Power of Rock: For Mac and Bloo's Punch Time Explosion attack, Bloo transforms into Bloonan the Barbarian and destroys his opponents with Epic Riffs
  • Reactor Boss: When you have to simultaneously have to keep Mojo Jojo at bay and destroy the core of Mojo's robot.
