After the thinner has receded from Wasteland, quakes have been causing trouble throughout the realm, while the Mad Doctor claims he has changed his ways and is offering the help of his machines and Beetleworx. Oswald's willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but he and the other inhabitants decide to call in for Mickey's help. Mickey and Oswald must work together to fix Wasteland's problems, find the source of the Earthquakes, and journey into the Dahl Engineering Corridors at the foundations of Wasteland and investigate the Mad Doctor's true intentions along the way.

* SaveTheVillain: [[spoiler:Oswald attempts this at the end of the final battle with the Mad Doctor after the latter nearly falls to his doom. He fails in the bad ending but succeeds (in [[HeelFaceTurn more ways than one]]) in the good ending.]]

* RememberTheNewGuy: [[AvertedTrope Averted at first]]. Gremlin Jamface was scrapped from the first one, so in Dark Beauty Castle Gus explains that Jamface is Gremlin Markus' cousin and replacement after the latter was injured. Doesn't stop the guy from telling Mickey it's "good to see you again" despite never meeting him before.
* RhymesOnADime: Fifer Pig and Fiddler Pig of the Three Little Pigs speak entirely in rhymes. Practical Pig, however, subverts this trope, saying that he used to rhyme but gave it up, thinking that it was annoying people.
** The Mad Doctor too, seeing as he mostly speaks in song.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Several characters disappear, namely Captain Hook, The Clocktower, And the Shadow Blot. Captain Hook is shown to be missing, but alive (seeing as Smee said he'd go looking for him), the other two are referenced in the dioramas but are absent themelves. The Clocktower's absence is understandable - its in a location you don't visit after all, but the Shadow Blot is a Blotling that you could befriend and can freely move around Wasteland, so its absence is puzzling. There are also other characters that are absent, such as Madame Leona, the Radio in a shack in Bog Easy; the Seer blotlings are also noticeably absent as well, seemingly being replace by the new Dropwings.
** Possibly justified in the case of the Shadow Blot through {{Fridge Horror}}. While you ''can'' befriend it, you can also thin it, so it's possible the thinner path is the true one. As for the Clock Tower, we ''know'' the thinner path is true through the {{Opening Narration}}.
