- In Spain, most people have an embedded camouflage system and they acquire the colour of the closest objects [as a real life explanation of colour clash in spectrum-alike MSX games]
- While carrying dynamite, make sure that you use extensively all the trampolines that you find [as in Dynamite Dan]
- Never ever leave a frying pan near a duck - it can lead to a massacre [as in Duck Out]
- When in doubt, spell all the words with plenty of "R"s in Engrish [CongratuRations alike-messages in well-known Japanese games]
- In medieval times, most boozers lived in mazes with giant bottles of rum [check Gautlet and compare relative sizes of objects and characters]
