* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Arguably. The first mention we get of [[spoiler: Emperor Zizzy]] is three levels before he's fought. The only hint we get of his existence before that anywhere in the MDK series are a few textures in the Alien Orbiter in level 4 featuring a royal seal.


* PortingDisaster: As [[AvertedTrope averted]] as it can get with the WiiWare version.
* SequelDisplacement: The article on [[{{VideoGame/MDK}} the original]] NeedsWikiMagicLove than it gets now. The article on this game does not need as much. It doesn't help that this game got both a WiiWare port ''and'' an [[UpdatedRerelease HD makeover]], while the previous game got neither due to the source code of ''MDK'' becoming lost over time (possibly not helped by the fact the developer of ''MDK'' 1, Shiny, has since gone out of business).

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OYVM6gHExM Main Theme]] sounds like very much [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0X6BeszEXm4 Leave You Far Behind]] by ''Lunatic Calm''.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The [[UnrealisticBlackHole Black Hole Grenade]]. Kurt only gets them a few times during the game, and often in situations where they are far from useful.

The [[UnrealisticBlackHole Black Hole Grenade]]. Kurt only gets them a few times during the game, and often in situations where they are far from useful.
** The [[HomingProjectile Missile]] [[PainfullySlowProjectile Launcher]] can be found by Max in later levels. He only gets one at a time, and is usually found near the end of his levels.


* CrazyAwesome: Max in spades. A six-legged, cigar-smoking robotic badass dog with a gravelly voice and the ability to [[GunsAkimbo wield four guns]]? Yeah.

* GuideDangIt: Suffers from a fair bit of this. Notable examples include:
** Surviving as Dr. Hawkins in level 3 after opening an airlock by mistake. It involves [[spoiler: magnets, [[DuctTapeForEverything duct tape]], and [[SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay a fishbowl on the head]].]]
** Figuring out that in that same level that to bypass the room with all the rockets lying around, you have to [[spoiler: toss your pet fish into the broken grate in the floor - leading to an [[UnexpectedGameplayChange unexpected short scene]] where you play as the fish]]. It doesn't help that Dr. Hawkins offers a [[RedHerring "hint"]] about finding a [[NoodleImplements monkey so you can get jelly and a blowdryer]].
** The moving blue spheres surrounded by clouds in level 4 - at no point is it even hinted that they [[spoiler: provide lift to Kurt's parachute.]]
** A very unclear sniping puzzle in early level 7 - requires Kurt to stand in specific locations to activate the sniper targets.
** As Max in level 8, in the [[spoiler: No Smoking area in Swizzle Firma]], you have to destroy a large amount of breakable scenery to open the door to the next area.
** Finishing off the [[BreatherBoss final encounter]] in level 9 requires you to figure out that [[spoiler: only pumpernickel shots work on the boss]].
** For the final boss: Knowing you can stand on the bubbles [[spoiler: inside Zizzy Balooba's body when you fight him as Dr. Hawkins.]], which allows you to punch his [[spoiler: brain]].
