Video Game / Scooby-Doo: First Frights

Go To
Scooby-Doo! First Frights is a 2009 platform video game based on the popular cartoon character of the same name.

The game consists of four episodes, each of them having younger versions of Mystery, Inc. collecting clues to determine the true identity of the monster disguise after facing said monster in a boss fight.

A sequel was released in 2010 titled Scooby-Doo! and the Spooky Swamp.

This game provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Badass: Mystery Inc. went from non-combatants in the original series to combatants in this video game, especially Daphne, who goes from Damsel in Distress to a Kick Chick.
  • Corrupted Character Copy: Tim Toiler from Episode 2 can best be described as an evil Willy Wonka who makes toys instead of candy, particularly resembling how Willy Wonka is portrayed in Nestle's Wonka candy commercials.
  • *Cough* Snark *Cough*: In Episode 4, Costington has a habit of coughing before making remarks at the expense of Baron Von Richenstoof, Scooby, and Shaggy.

  • Dagwood Sandwich: The "hot dogs" which Shaggy and Scooby make during Episode 2. They hardly even resemble hot dogs due to the amount of toppings (and the fact that they are topped with bread rather than buns).
  • Episodic Game: The game is set in 4 episodes.
  • Final Boss: The Witch Queen is the final boss fought in the game due to being the boss of the fourth and final episode.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Episode 2 has the gang encounter Numbers, a boy who invents gadgets to try and track down the one behind the toy army at the carnival.
  • Giant Spider: Encountered in Episode 4.
  • Horned Hairdo: Tim Toiler from Episode 2 has hair shaped like a pair of horns.
  • Humongous Mecha: The bosses of Episode 2 and 3- a giant Toy Robot and a giant mechanical lobster.
  • Kick Chick: Daphne fights by kicking.
  • Killer Teddy Bear: Enemies in Episode 2

  • Laugh Track: The fourth Scooby-Doo game to feature the use of a laugh track.
  • Our Gargoyles Rock: Some of the gargoyles in Episode 4 come to life and attack the player.
  • Precocious Crush: Teenage Daphne has a crush on adult Seth Angler in Episode 3.
  • Real After All: The Witch Queen is implied to actually be a genuine supernatural threat and not just a criminal in a costume, as no explanation is given for her powers and her suspected true identity Lady Azarni is hinted to be long deceased.
  • Shout-Out: Several.
    • Once Tim Toiler is revealed to be The Toyman, he gives his full name as "Tim 'The Toyman' Toiler".
    • The reason why they travel to the carnival at all is to practice for the eating contest by getting "Dagwood Dogs"note .
  • Throw the Book at Them: Velma's fighting style, literally.
  • Villain Song: The first phase of the boss fight against the Phantom in Episode 1 has the Phantom sing to Mystery, Inc. about how they'll get in trouble for trying to thwart him.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Cap'n Bluebeard, true to his name, has a blue beard.
