* CorruptCorporateExecutive: The Bloats came off as malignant business owners, which fit in with the game's description of Zoombinis and them with business-like manner. Two major examples being exploitation of Zoombinis as menial laborers and turning their island into wasteland ''Island Odyssey''


''The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis'' is the first and most well-known in a series of {{Edutainment Game}}s. The story focuses on the Zoombinis, an idyllic race of cute blue {{Waddling Head}}s, each with different appearances and personalities, who live in peace on Zoombini Isle. One day, a race called the Bloats came in and offered to improve their trade routes and infrastructure. But the Zoombinis soon found themselves enslaved to the Bloats, and so they set out to find a new homeland across the sea.

Added DiffLines:

** Fleens! can be harder on Oh, So Hard than on Very Hard because only four Zoombinis can fit on the tree branch at once instead of the usual six. Since it takes three Zoombinis to lure the necessary Fleens down, you can only afford one wrong guess before you start losing Zoombinis.


* In ''Mountain Rescue'', after a group of Zoombinis get lost exploring a mountain, they come across another group of explorers from a race called Boolies, who have also lost their way from their hometown of Booliewood. The Zoombinis must help rescue the Boolies to return the Boolies' leader, the Grand Boolie Boolie.

* In ''Island Odyssey'', the Zoombinis discover the Bloats have since abandonded Zoombini Isle, leaving it an ecological wasteland. The Zoombinis send a team to survey the damage, revealing the local Zerble moth population to be on the verge of extinction. The Zoombinis set out to restore the Zerbles and restore the ecology of Zoombini Isle.

Added DiffLines:

* LivingCrashpad: Defied - if a Zoombini is loitering where another Zoombini is about to fall, the first Zoombini will scramble out of the way.


* GlassSmackAndSlide: If you get mismatched images on the central crystal of the Mirror Machine, the crystal will lower into the path of the unfortunate Zoombini, who will smack face-first into the crystal and tumble into the abyss.



* NightmareFetishist: Implied with the crystal puzzle. Some Zoombinis scream in terror as they hurtle over the gap, others whoop in delight.

* NightmareFetishist: Implied with during the crystal Mirror Machine puzzle. Some Zoombinis scream in terror as they [[RollercoasterMine hurtle over the gap, gap in the tracks]], others whoop in delight.[[note]]Assuming you matched the images correctly, that is...[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

* RollercoasterMine: The Mirror Machine puzzle features carts that Zoombinis have to ride. There's a gap in the tracks that each Zoombini has to fling themselves over - whether or not the central crystal has matching images determines whether the Zoombini makes it across with the cart or [[GlassSmackAndSlide gets knocked off into the abyss]].

Added DiffLines:

* ThePratfall: Often (but not always) accompanied by [[CirclingBirdies stars circling the unfortunate Zoombini]].
** How Zoombinis land after being catapulted over Mudball Wall.
** The most common result of the actions taken in VideoGameCrueltyPotential.


Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Some Zoombinis do not sound happy about the prospect of being catapulted over Mudball Wall.

Added DiffLines:

* CirclingBirdies: Zoombinis that have recently [[ThePratfall taken a tumble]] will have stars circling their heads for a moment.


Added DiffLines:

* GravityIsAHarshMistress: Gravitational cognizance variety at Hotel Dimensia. When a platform yanks itself out from underneath a Zoombini, the Zoombini won't fall until after he/she has [[OhCrap looked down]].
