Sushi Cat provides examples of:

  • And Your Reward Is Clothes: In both Sushi Cat 2, and Sushi Cat 2: The Great Purrade, collecting golden sushi gets you more costumes to select.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: The Big Bad of Sushi Cat the Honeymoon is a sentient volcano.
    • Most of the sushi and other food in the series have a face on them, though it's never explained whether or not they're sentient.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Sushi Cat is a bright blue cat.
  • Badass Adorable: The titular protagonist of the series, Sushi Cat, is able to grow to ridiculous sizes, just by eating copious amounts of sushi. He also once single-handedly stopped a volcano from erupting in Sushi Cat the Honeymoon.
    • Taken Even further in his playable appearance in The Big Journey, where he's capable of destroying hundreds of monsters just by jumping into them.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: At the end of Sushi Catapult, Sushi Cat successfully manages to get to the moon before the rocket, and is somehow able to breathe in space without a helmet.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Sushi Cat may be a pretty friendly tabby cat, but don't try to get between him and his wife. The volcano from Sushi Cat the Honeymoon, and the seagull from Sushi Catapult both learned that the hard way.
  • Big Bad: Bacon Dog who steals Sushi Cat's Wife in Sushi Cat 2.
    • To a much greater extent, the volcano from Sushi Cat the Honeymoon, who attacked the cruise ship that Sushi Cat was on, and presumably threatened to destroy the island that Sushi Cat got onto.
  • Big Eater: Each game revolves around the protagonist eating a lot of sushi to get larger.
  • Cats Are Lazy: Sushi Cat is a chubby feline who just likes to lay around and eat.
  • Cat Stereotype: Sushi Cat is a friendly male tabby.
  • Companion Cube: Sushi Cat's wife is a pink cat plushie.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: Sushi Cat gained tabby stripes between the first two games.
  • Extreme Omnivore: In Sushi Cat 2 and Sushi Cat 2 The Great Purrade, Sushi Cat collects the pieces of golden sushi by eating them.
    • There are also a few Power Ups in the series that seem to resemble objects that aren't normally edible in real life.
    • At the end of Sushi Catapult, after Sushi Cat jumps all the way to the moon, he eats it
  • Fantastic Racism: In Sushi Catapult, a ticket cashier pig refuses to give Sushi Cat a ticket to partake in the "Race to the Moon" simply because it violates the "no cats" policy. Note, that this series takes place in a world of partially civilized animals, so one would question why the race has a "no cats" policy.
  • Guest Fighter: One of the playable costumes in Sushi Cat 2, is of the Blue Elephant from Achievement Unlocked.
    • One of the many powerups in Sushi Cat 2: The Great Purrade, features Nyan Cat.
    • Sushi Cat himself has become one in a game called, "The Big Journey" as the first unlockable character.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Bacon Dog, who stole/kidnapped Sushi Cat's wife at the beginning of the game, has one at the end of Sushi Cat 2.
  • Killed Off for Real: The seagull that steals Sushi Cat's wife in Sushi Catapult, is squashed to death by a giant Sushi Cat in only the second cutscene he appears in, thus making him possibly the first major character in the series to die onscreen.
  • Official Couple: In the beggining of Sushi Cat the Honeymoon, it's shown that Sushi Cat and the pink cat plush toy he won in the first game, are now officially married.
  • Official Couple Ordeal Syndrome: Sushi Cat has his plush wife "kidnapped" in Sushi Cat 2 and Sushi Catapult, and accidentally loses her in Sushi Cat 2 the Great Purrade, and has their vacation ruined by a sentient volcano.
  • Partially Civilized Animal: Sushi Cat looks like a normal cat, albeit highly stylized, and gets petted like a normal cat in the first game. Yet he displays humanoid behaviors like visiting stores in the sequel.
  • Secret Character: If you collect every single piece of golden sushi in Sushi Cat 2, then you get to play as Bacon Dog. If you do the same in Sushi Cat 2: The Great Purrade, then you get to play as Sushi Cat's Wife.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: As his name implies, Sushi Cat's favorite food is sushi. Then there's Bacon Dog, who's favorite food is... bacon...
