No, this is not related to Jujubes candy, nor to the [[NamesTheSame Tak]] from [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim another Nicktoon]].

''Tak and the Power of Juju'' is a 2003 video game made by THQ and Nickelodeon for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube and UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance. It has had two sequels one in 2004 known as ''VideoGame/Tak2TheStaffOfDreams'' and one in 2005 called ''VideoGame/TakTheGreatJujuChallenge''. The franchise was later adapted into a short-lived Nicktoon with two extra tie-in games in 2008 called ''VideoGame/TakAndTheGuardiansOfGross'' and ''VideoGame/TakMojoMistake''.

!!Tropes include:

* TheAce: Lok is presented as such... [[ButtMonkey and proceeds to be mocked relentlessly from then on]].
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: When Jibolba describes the plight of the Pupanunu people, he calls the Moon Juju "good, and wise, and pretty." Then he mentions Tlaloc having imprisoned her, and states that Tlaloc isn't good or wise, "and he's ''certainly'' not pretty."
* BalefulPolymorph: Tlalok's sheep curse. He turns Tak into several different animals in quick succession during the first game's final boss fight.
* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: Tak uses Tlaloc's own tricks to defeat him.
* BorderPatrol: The electric jellyfish in the original game.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The first game opens with Jibulba summoning a mighty Juju to guide Tak through his adventure. This turns out to be the player. Jibulba marvels at the "power stick" the player holds, and the "mystic box" the player watches him on, noting that it is clearly "the most important thing in your hut."
* ButtMonkey: Tak, Lok and basically everyone else at one point or another.
* TheChewToy: Lok tends to get screwed over pretty much all the time.
* CanonForeigner: The majority of characters from the show.
* TheChosenOne: Jibulba names Lok as the Mighty Warrior of the Pupanunu People's Prophecy at the start of the first game. He's wrong. It's Tak.
* CloudCuckooLander: Pretty much everyone who isn't Tak... and even he has his moments.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Lok may be a self absorbed idiot, but he actually ''can'' back up his talk when he decides to fight, proving to be both stronger and a better warrior than Tak. He ''was'' thought to be the chosen one after all.
* TheDitz: Lok
* DoggedNiceGuy: Tak in the TV series towards Jeera.
* DumbMuscle: Lok is a class-A idiot, but he's also incredibly strong.
* EnemyMine: In one of the sequel games, Tlaloc grants Tak some new magical power. For all of their bad blood, even he's well aware of the dangers of the Black Mist Tribe winning.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: A curse turns the Chief into one.
* FatBastard / FatIdiot: Chief
* FakeUltimateHero: Lok
* FetchQuest: The ''entire'' first game is a long string of fetch quests.
* GRatedDrug: The love potion from "Love Hurts".
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Plenty all over the place.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Tak beats Tlaloc in the first game by [[spoiler:having a polymorphed Flora [[TreeBuchet fling Tlaloc]] into his own giant Bad Juju cauldron, turning him into a sheep.]]
* IdiotHero: Tak becomes on in the TV show.
* ItWasWithYouAllAlong
* JerkAss: Quite a few characters, particularly in the show.
* LifeMeter: Exhibited by changing colors in the feather on Tak's head.
* MacGuffin: The Staff of Dreams.
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: Tak has appeared in two titles THQ's ''NicktoonsUnite'' crossover game series.
* NinjaButterfly: Juju Flora. Flea!Jibulba in the real world in the second game. In the dream world, it's the Dream Juju. [[spoiler:AKA Tlaloc.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Tak in the games. Jeera in the TV show.
* PottyEmergency: A side effect of being brought BackFromTheDead called "Resurrection's Revenge". It lasts for a good long while too.
* SaveThePrincess: The second game appears to be a basic SaveThePrincess plot, with the dream world thrown in for flavor. Turns out [[spoiler:there is no princess, just Pins and Needles [[TotemPoleTrench on top of each other]], and the "Horrible Beast" Tak takes out is the Dream Guardian. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Oops.]]]]
* SuperDrowningSkills: Lok takes damage whenever he enters water in ''The Great Juju Challenge'' -- not because he can't swim, but because he attracts angry fish. (If the water is full of gators, Tak's no better off.)
* SuperNotDrowningSkills: The Lobster Suit lets Lok walk around underwater indefinitely.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Lok bullies Tak in certain episodes of the animated series whereas in the games he was, while obnoxious and only occasionally helpful, very supportive of Tak to the point of being a wannnabe BigBrotherMentor.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Pins and Needles.
* TreeBuchet: Used in the game.
* TwentyBearAsses: Those blasted Yorbels... and you need a ''lot'' of them.
* UnexpectedGameplayChange: Powder Canyon and Numa Dunes change the game from a platformer to ''Tony Hawk''-style extreme sports. Similarly, the boss fights against Pins and Needles later in the game take the form of fighting on ostriches or a VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution-style dance-off.
* TheUnintelligible: Needles.
