* AuthorTract: DialgaBrite is a fan of Series/WhaleWars and the game contains numerous Japanese whaling ships as bosses.

* AbnormalAmmo: examples of projectiles used in this game include musical notes, leeks, fish and the color pink. And that's just the ones used by players.
* AllJustADream: nightmare sequences. Though, dying on the bosses of those results in a Game Over, so this might be a case of NeverSleepAgain or YourMindMakesItReal.
* ArtShift: some characters are sprited, some are drawn, and the whalers and their drones are even photorealistic!
* AttackDrone: the helicopters and ships that try to stop you from reaching the whaling vessels are referred to as drones, presumably so that the player characters can blow them up without worrying about destroying humans just doing their job.

* CardCarryingVillain: most of them, really.
--> ''Discord'': I'm incurable!
* ComputerVirus: the Nightmare sequences are based on Creepypasta games. While Miku and Meloetta fittingly fight dark-affiliated foes (Nightmare Pokémon Darkrai and Nightmare Moon, respectively) Pinkie, as per her MediumAwareness, gets to fight something else entirely: a computer virus who takes the form of a [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Met]] wearing PoweredArmor (possibly referencing their status as computer viruses in the ''Battle Network'' series). This is a nod to the creepypasta games that forcefully create unwanted files on your computer (the Luna Games are known to do that, for instance).
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: the whalers have this kind of vibe going on.
* {{Creepypasta}}: the Nightmare sequences reference creepypasta games, notably the infamous Luna Games. The game even goes as far as to forcefully create PNG files in your game folder, just like the Luna Games do.

* {{Demonization}}: while few would say whale poaching is a good thing, the evilness of Japanese whalers is significantly exaggerated in this game, almost to CardCarryingVillain levels. They are minions of [[BigBad Discord]], to begin with, and the Nisshin Maru even plans to [[IAmAHumanitarian sell Meloetta as food]]. This is necessary in order to justify the heroes blowing up their ships.

* ElementalRockPaperScissors: the game uses the Pokémon weaknesses system and you can use notes you get from beating levels and bosses to buy some elemental attacks. It doesn't matter much on normal enemies, as they die in one hit (except for Meloetta, who can switch her Forme between Normal/Psychic and Normal/Fighting to mitigate damage dealt to her). It's useful on some bosses, however.
* EvilLaugh: many of the villains. Nightmare Moon gets a vocal one at the beginning of the battle against her, and Discord laughs every time he is about to attack.
* FakeDifficulty: if your display is not bright enough, it can be hard to make out the dark notes Discorded Miku fires from the equally dark background.
* FissionMailed: in the Nightmare chapter, both Miku and Meloetta are unavoidably killed by spikes. This is required for progression and takes you to the boss.
* GottaCatchThemAll: the notes, in order to [[spoiler:reform Discord]].

* MusicalAssassin: all the characters, though "assassin" may be a strong word. The actual effects of the musical attacks story-wise vary depending on the evilness of targets, they are implied to simply "calm down" furious Pokémon, but definitely destroy the whalers.
* NotDrawnToScale: either your characters are huge, or the whaling ships are very tiny. Especially blatant in Miku's case.

* SonicStunner: the whalers' sirens.
* ShockAndAwe: one of the attacks you can get.
* StandardStatusEffects: numerous attacks from bosses don't inflict damage, but instead cause various unpleasant effects. The whalers' [[SonicStunner siren attacks]] drastically slow down movement, leaving you open to their harpoons. Kaa fires blasts that put Meloetta to sleep before trying to melee her. Darkrai uses his Dark Void ability, but because of his Bad Dreams effect this actually deals damage. Tickled Pink's tears severely reduce your resistance to her attacks.

* ThemeMusicPowerUp: every character in the game has a different song or music that plays during their super special. When the super special is used, this music overrides whatever other theme was playing at the moment, even boss themes. For instance, Meloetta sings the "Relic Song", Miku sings her rendition of Ievan Polka, and Pinkie Pie sings "Giggle At The Ghostie".

* CallASmeerpARabbit: The whalers refer to Kyogre as a whale, though it's mostly because of their own ignorance. And Kyogre does look like some kind of porpoise.
