Game(s)

  • Franchise Killer: Thanks to the utter screwing-over that the TV series went through, after the two tie-in games released to promote it, nothing has been heard of the Tak franchise since.
  • God Does Not Own This World: While Avalanche Software were the ones responsible for creating the series, THQ and Nickelodeon are the ones who kept the rights for it. That's how Guardians Of Gross, Mojo Mistake and the TV show got made without their involvement three years after their partnership ended due to complicated reasons.

  • Stopped Numbering Sequels: Tak 2: The Staff of Dreams is the only sequel with an official number in the title accompanied by subtitles, the rest all use subtitles only.
  • The Other Marty: In the original game, Jason Marsden did the voice of Dead/Party Juju before he was replaced by Rob Paulsen in the final version of the game. Marsden's take of "Nice job, little dude!" can be found in a commercial.
  • The Wiki Rule: Tak and the Power of Juju Wiki.
  • What Could Have Been: In the Numa Dunes tutorial video, Flora has a different color feather meter then Tak does, indicating that at some point in time she may have been playable.

Show

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Inverted; while the show can still be bought off Amazon either in DVD or digital through iTunes among other platforms, no episodes have ever really been found online since its cancellation.
  • The Other Darrin: Besides Dead/Party Juju and Lok, almost every character from the original three games got a voice change for the show:
    • Jason Marsden was replaced by Hal Sparks as Tak
    • John Kassir was replaced by Lloyd Sher as Jibolba
    • Rob Paulsen's roles of Mindreader/Psychic Juju and Tlaloc/Traloc were replaced by S. Scott Bullock and Jeff Bennett respectively despite Rob still doing the voice of Dead/Party Juju.
  • Screwed by the Network: Ironic that the show was meant to come first, but delays booted the games ahead instead while they tried to get the show up and running. Three games in, the show finally premiered in 2007...and Nickelodeon did little to promote it. Eventually, it got put on Nicktoons Network, where it would often be seen hanging out in a graveyard slot. The show would sometimes air outside of that timeslot, however. After the two last games, the show was quietly cancelled and faded into obscurity.
