* {{Anvilicious}}: You know how ''{{Sonic The Hedgehog}}'' had a subtle environmental message? This is not subtle.
* MemeticLoser: While [[VideoGame/{{Bubsy}} Bubsy]] is the more infamous [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]]-[[FollowTheLeader knockoff]], Awesome Possum is still remembered as being even an even worse character than Bubsy.
* MostAnnoyingSound: "I'm so cool! I'm so cool! I'm so cool!" And pretty much everything that Awesome Possum says, due to the fact that he ''just won't shut up.''
* NightmareFuel:
** The gloomy, ruined landscapes, the deformed giant bees, the looming council of animals that asks you questions in between levels, and gets really pissed off when you answer incorrectly...
** '''The Game Over screen.'''
** Some of Awesome Possum's death animations can be a little graphic.
** In a beta version of the game, instead of appearing increasingly tired, Awesome Possom's mugshot in the top left of the screen ''gradually decayed'' as he took damage.
* TheScrappy: Awesome Possum himself is this due to being a [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] ripoff, as well as his annoying voice and the poor quality of the game in general.
* SerialNumbersFiledOff: The game is so transparently a copy of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', down to the machine-themed villain, the GreenHillZone first level, and even the spinning jump animation of the titular character.
