* BugsHeraldEvil: While the insect-like Metal Bugs ''do'' serve as a direct threat during the events of this game, their presence definitely serves as a harbinger to the other Metal Heads getting involved should [[spoiler: Kaedenís]] plan fail.

* BigBadDuumvirate: Toward the end of the game, Daxter and Tik run into an averted example involving [[spoiler: Erol and Count Veger]], who are in the middle of a discussion on why a team-up between them isnít possible, citing [[spoiler: Erolís experiments with Dark Eco, something Veger cannot tolerate]]. Consequently, this leads to them [[BigBadEnsemble working independently from each other during the events of Jak 3]].
* BigCreepyCrawlies: While not all Metal Bugs are physically large, some (Particularly, the ''Altum sonatur'' and Stripe Mine hive queens, as well as [[spoiler: Metal Kaeden]]) absolutely ''dwarf'' human beings, let alone Daxter.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSteveLimit: Osmoís son (And later Daxterís good friend) is named Ximon. Near the end of the plot, he and Daxter inadvertently learn from Erol that there is a Krimzon Guard captain, also named Ximon (Rupertikjakmos), who is off-duty during the gameís events, thereby averting this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* UnpronounceableAlias: While it isnít a characterís alter ego by any means, an attempt by Daxter and Ximon to gain entry into Haven Palace makes a brush with this trope. Specifically, Daxter informs [[TheDragon Erol]] that someone named ďXimon RupertikjakmosĒ made a call to clean out a Metal Bug infestation. Although Erol denies Daxter entry into the edifice, his reason for doing so is unexpected.
-->'''Erol''': Nice try, that call didn't happen. Captain Rupertikjakmos is on leave this month, he couldn't have been the one.


Added DiffLines:

* WickedWasps: The Strip Mine Hive Queen, the second true boss, is a dreadfully giant Metal Bug resembling a hornet that terrorizes the Strip Mine until Daxter shows up to defeat her.
