** First take Jack, whose natural hammy theatrics are TurnedUpToEleven when in [[MusicalAssassin Musical Assassin mode]] then pit him in dance fights with huge song and dance sequences - complete with backup dancers (No, really, you can actually sing and dance most the bosses into submission Broadway style) - against the following:

* NiceGuy: Jack's friendliness is very apparent now that he's over his Christmas obsession. When he first meets the game's main enemies, his immediate reaction is try to shake their hand and welcome them into town. Later, despite the scope of their crimes, Jack always leaves Lock, Shock and Barrel off with a angry scolding and little else once they're beaten. During his boss fight with Finkelstein, he repeatedly implores the doctor to stop fighting, despite him literally having a different brain driving his body. Just about the only person he isn't in some way friendly with is Oogie, [[GoKartingWithBowser and even then the two sing and dance together in the boss battles.]]

* PlanetHeck: The Grisly Gauntlet, what with [[LethalLavaLand lava]], countless skeletons protruding from the floor and walls, and one of the dark and intense music pieces that features Oogie whispering Jacks name and emitting his EvilLaugh numerous times. If it weren't for it being rather early, one could mistake this for the last level.

* CanonImmigrant: Sort of. Some of the larger skeleton enemies strongly resemble one of the skeleton pirates from another Henry Selick movie, JamesAndTheGiantPeach. Jack, of course, has a cameo as the pirate captain.

* AdaptationExpansion: Downplayed. The game gives a more definitive outlay of Halloween Town and the roles of some of it's citizens, and we get some light shed on the Holiday Doors and where Jack found them, but ultimately we don't learn very much about the characters' histories or how the world works.
