* MeaningfulName: ''Freeon''-Leon's default ability is to walk on ice without slipping, and his special ability is to freeze enemies with his icy breath and turn them into blocks to be used as platforms. (Freon is [[DontExplainTheJoke the gas used in refrigerators]]). Gil, of course, is a frog that can swim underwater.

* CuteKitten: Freeon-Leon the dinosaur was originally O-chan, a cute kitten, or at least somebody dressed as one.
** At least two of the three key guardians are kittens. The third key guardian, the UFO boss, is probably an alien kitty.

* SequenceBreaking: It's possible, albeit very difficult (think subpixel positioning and frame-perfect jumping, making it pretty much a [=TAS-only=] trick), to skip Shades entirely.

* SequenceBreaking: {{Railroading}}: As soon as you go left upon starting the game, you can find a closed off area with an arrow indicating you're supposed to go up it, but until you get Bop Louie's suction cups that let you climb the nearby wall, it's a dead end, [[WhenAllElseFailsGoRight forcing you to go right.]]

* WakeUpCallBoss: The UFO boss, the first of the three bosses you fight for a key. It's hotbox is smaller than the other bosses, it can do some nasty damage to you if you collide with it, and it's combo of spawning enemies while moving in an arc can make it frustrating. It also has a second phase, which isn't hard per se, but it's ability to turn invisible can give it a chance to land a cheap hit on you.

* OpeningTheSandbox: There's not too many areas you can go in the game at first, but once you find the Suction Cups for Bop Louie, which allows him to scale ''any'' wall in the game, the bulk of the game opens up for you to explore!
