These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Alternate Character Interpretation: The entire series is an Evil Plan by the Bunyips to get TY powerful enough to wipe out the Quinkan, leaving no force powerful enough to stop the Bunyips. Hey, they're not good guys in Aussie folklore, so their benevolence in-game is more than a little off-putting.
Anti-Climax Boss: In the second game, Boss Cass' final form is...Boss Cass himself. No fancy mechs (on his part), no special effects, just the one cassowary. Though hitting him with the Shadow Bunyip's Frickin' Laser Beams is a guilty pleasure...
Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer: Kart racing! It can either be done from the main story mode (where it's theoretically a useful way to get opals, but we know you're just doing it for fun) or as an option from the main menu (so you can skip the middleman, play any character you want, and even go on a grand tour of all the courses in the game).
