Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Due to not being able to choose which characters you use in ''Volcano Island'', some cutscenes have different teams from gameplay: Fetid Forest has you use a team of [=SpongeBob=], Danny, Patrick and Sandy, but the cutscenes at the end of the level have Sam instead of Patrick, despite Sam not participating in the level. Similarly, Ancient's Peak has a team of [=SpongeBob=], Danny, Sam and Sandy, but Patrick replaces Sam in the end-of-level cutscene.

** Two examples with Bikini Bottom in ''Globs of Doom'':
*** The starting cutscene has [=SpongeBob=] and Beautiful Gorgeous chasing after Bubble Bass, who's heading to the Krusty Krab (which acts as the boss level of the area). After travelling through most of Bikini Bottom, the two end up at the Chum Bucket, which is right across the street from the Krusty Krab. Instead of just going across the street, however, the game makes the player go through another level which starts off in a completely different location altogether before ''then'' facing Bubble Bass at the Krusty Krab.
*** Upon completing the first Bikini Bottom level, the following cutscene has Plankton mention that the Chum Bucket is in danger... even though it's the last location visited in the aforementioned level and the player's likely already cleared most, if not all the enemies out of it already.

** One of [=SpongeBob=]'s lines upon breaking an object in ''Globs of Doom'' is "[[Series/FamilyMatters Oops, did I do that?]]"

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first game has a number of differences from the following games: there was a set team of four characters ([=SpongeBob=], Danny, Timmy and Jimmy), Timmy and Jimmy mainly attack through projectiles and lack melee attacks, no one could DoubleJump, and each character had several exclusive abilities that had to be unlocked through the story first. From the later games onwards, the team number varies[[note]]''Volcano Island'' has two-to-four characters out of the six available and the games after that stick to teams of two[[/note]], characters play much more similarly and everyone uses melee attacks, and there are no upgrades for individual characters[[note]] ''Globs of Doom'' allows you to upgrade elements like health and gadget meter gain, albeit on a team-wide basis[[/note]].

* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to the sequels, the first game is DarkerAndEdgier than the series it's crossing over, both in music and threats, and with less cartoonish and comedic moments. The sequels, however, are much more LighterAndSofter.

* GameBreakingBug: The console versions of ''Globs of Doom'' have a particularly nasty one where it causes the save files to become corrupt and unplayable, pretty much forcing the player to start the game all the way from the beginning again. This has contributed to the [[FranchiseKiller death of the Nicktoons crossover series]].
