* CharacterDevelopment: Lester becomes a lot less of a loser as the game goes on.
** In more detail, when Lester arrives at the beginning beach area, he's basically a wuss. Lester can't even jump down a cliff or spiky rocks without shaking in fear, something most game protagonists can do without hesitation. Although he runs from an enemy, screaming like a complete wimp the first time he encounters it, it doesn't happen in subsequent encounters. On his adventure through the island, however, he becomes more confident as he travels (after a kiss from Tikka, that is, he is no longer flailing his arms while running, standing upright, etc).

Added DiffLines:

* GiantSpider: Lester fights a very scary and detailed one that drops down suddenly, and in all fairness to him it would be enough to terrify most people playing.

''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' reviewed this game in Episode 96.


* BattleBoomerang: Lester can wield one of these as a weapon- notably using it to destroy stone barricades and knock out giant gorillas.
-->'''Lester:''' Don't mention it, I'm pretty good with Boomerangs.



* DamselInDistress

to:

* DamselInDistressDamselInDistress: Two major ones- first [[TheChiefsDaughter Tikka]] (When you have to save her from the KillerGorilla.), and then the Chief himself- who has been taken hostage by the Pirates on the other side of the Island.



* FaceYourFears: A major theme of the game. When Lester encounters an enemy for the first time, he runs from it (removing control from the player temporarily). He will then approach it cautiously. Once that particular type of enemy is defeated, Lester will not show any fear toward it.
* FurBikini: The cover shows a lady wearing one.
%%* FragileSpeedster: Lester.
%%* HollywoodNerd: Lester, again.
* KillerGorilla: Lester fights one to save a native girl.

* EmbarrassingNickname: "[[TitleDrop Lester the Unlikely]]" is given to Lester by Tikka after he suggests going to rescue her kidnapped father from the Pirates.
-->'''Lester:''' Gee, that's terrible. I've got to rescue your father! Leave it to me, Lester the Heroic.
-->'''Tikka:''' More like Lester the Unlikely! You can hardly take care of yourself, how can you expect to save anyone else?
* FallingDamage: Jump or fall off a ledge that's too high, and you'll get injured.
* FurBikini: The Tikka wears one on both the front cover shows a lady wearing one.

Lester. Although his running speed is decent enough, he can only take a maximum of three hits before he goes down.

again-
-->'''Lester:''' Wow! The new issue of ''Super Duper Hero Squad'' is the best ever! I just wish I could afford to buy a copy of each of this issue's 52 covers. That'd show the guys how cool I am!
* InfinityPlusOneSword: The Sword, attained near the end, is the strongest weapon in the game- being able to take down [[DemonicSpiders Pirates]] in two hits.
* KillerGorilla: Lester fights one to save a native girl. Notably, it's the only real boss in the game.


Added DiffLines:

* TheChiefsDaughter: Tikka, who helps Lester when he reaches the Native village.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: Lester, as mentioned previously. At the start of the game, he's a coward who gets scared of things like crabs and turtles. By the end, he's much more confident in himself, loses his cowardice, and capable enough in combat to be ''shanking pirates with a Sword''.

''Lester the Unlikely'' is a 1994 game for the SNES. In the beginning, a typical teenage boy named Lester, who is "kind of geeky" and "kind of sleepy", recently got a new issue of the ''Super Duper Hero Squad'' comic book. He was reading it while walking on a pier, until he fell asleep next to a cargo crate lying beside a cargo ship. After he and the cargo were loaded onto the ship by a crane and cruised off, the ship got hijacked by pirates who scuttled it. Lester luckily found a life jacket and swam toward the nearest island while the cargo ship sank. Lester must find his way home by exploring the island for someone or something that can help him survive.
