- Demonic Turtles: Turtles divebomb you from out of nowhere and do massive damage if they hit you.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: You could say Cocoron is Spore's grandparent.
- That One Boss: Really, any boss in the game, but the Joker is especially difficult if you don't have the right character build or the right weapon.
- The Untwist: The Baku, a Japanese spirit who devours dreams and nightmares, is usually depicted as a tapir. You remember Drowzee, don't you? Yeah, the Tapir is the game's villain.
