This game contains examples of:

  • A Long Time Ago, in a Galaxy Far, Far Away...: As the Newgrounds description starts:
    Somewhere in a galaxy far away, a creature named Pichin was born. It was the results of a levitation experiment, but it didn't have the slightest signs of being able to fly.
    Determined to prove its worth, Pichin works hard to reach the highest star.
  • Cartoon Creature: Pichin appears to be a combination of flan, a peach, and a bird, with evolutionary forms giving him plant, animal, and metal characteristics.
  • Evolutionary Levels: Pichin evolves into different forms depending on what he feeds on over time.
  • Gainax Ending: After making it past space, Pichin wakes up in an ocean, and finds a crashed rocketship filled with other Pichins.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Pichin is adorable in any of his forms.
  • Skill Scores and Perks: Depending on what Pichin evolves into, he has different skills and abilities. Some are passive and activate automatically, with others must be activated manually.
  • Space Is an Ocean: The ending implies this about outer space, as Pichin traverses space to end up in another planet's ocean.
  • Space Zone: The highest tier of the launch site is outer space.
  • Take That!: The Twilight height level mentions how there are no sparkly vampires around.
