Trivia / TY the Tasmanian Tiger

Go To

  • The Danza: In TY2 and 3, Gooboo Steve is voiced by creative director Steve Stamatiadis.
  • No Export for You: While the first two games were released worldwide, the third game never made it to Europe.
    • Thankfully, this has changed with the third game's release on Steam following it's predecessors.
  • Inspiration Nod: The customizable 'Rangs in the third game was based on the Materia system in 'Final Fantasy VII' to give the game a more RPG-like feel.
  • The Other Darrin: The voice cast has changed between games. While characters such as Maurie, Dennis, Boss Cass, Fluffy, and Rex have the same voice actors throughout the series, others, including Ty, Shazza, Sly, Ranger Ken, and Julius, have different voice actors, with Shazza and Sly being egregious examples, as they have a different voice each game. Ty, in particular, was voiced by veteran video game voice actor Greg Ellis in the second and third games.

  • Shout-Out: TY's side mouth is actually a reference to Strop from The Paul Hogan Show, who along with Hogan made Crocodile Dundee
  • What Could Have Been: The second game was originally going to have a time travel plot, Betty and Duncan were a younger Di and Bri, and Karlos was supposed to be an older Julius. Probably might explain the dinosaurs.
    • There was going to be an animated series produced by Film Roman, but was scrapped due to networks not showing interest in it.
    • The first game was originally going to have a fourth set of levels after getting the Zappyrang. Said planned levels were a night Outback level, a mangrove level and another Great Barrier Reef level. The Zappyrang would've played a major role in these levels for electricity-based puzzles instead of just being used to grant access to the final level. Even without knowing this, it's evidenced by unlockable concept art showing a fourth, earth-themed variety of opal.
  • The Wiki Rule: Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Wiki and another Ty the Tasmanian Tiger Wiki.
