This game provides examples of:
Asian Store Owner: Mrs. Tanaka. Apart from dye, what she's selling isn't made clear. Probably a downplayed trope, because her store is in Japan, where almost everyone is, well, Asian.
Art Major Physics: Because putting on a translucent/transparent suit would really make you absolutely invisible from top to bottom.
Gadget Watches: Barbie uses a watch to communicate with her friends back at base while she’s on a mission. When it’s not being used in this way, it functions as a minimap/GPS device. Also see Super Wrist Gadget below.
Improbable Weapon User: To call them weapons is a stretch, but Barbie's arsenal of gadgets consists of: a lipstick, a swingshot that's a wristband, a bottle of perfume, a robot puppy, a camera, some glasses and a compact of foundation that causes a huge cloud of smoke. Yeah.
Instant Costume Change: Barbie performs these when changing among Stealth, Action and Adventure modes, sometimes in broad daylight, in a public area, while surrounded by a crowd. This is never mentioned or explained.
No Peripheral Vision: The guards seem to have this. In fact, you can see their exact field of vision on the minimap. You could be standing right next to one of the guards, but as long as you’re not in that vision field, you won’t get noticed.
Robot Dog: One of Barbie’s gadgets is a robot dog that looks suspiciously like a Poochie [the robotic toy dog from the Turn of the Millennium]. It’s used to distract guards and reach small spaces where Barbie can’t fit.
Stealth Expert: It’s hard to believe that Barbie can go by unnoticed in the highly colourful ‘Stealth Mode’ outfit that she wears, especially when she’s ‘stealthing’ in sparsely populated areas. This is, therefore, the only explanation.
