The Chat "People" have "we are robots" written ALL over themselves

5 National Stereotypes
6 Long Song, Short Scene

London: Is the theme song of a map that gives Sponge access to exactly ONE level
Brinstar: Plays in a level that barely even is long enough to allow it to finish playing
Tail Cave: Plays in a level that barely even is long enough to allow it to finish playing
Jesus Bleibet Meine Freude: Plays for the few seconds that Sponge entering the Restaurant takes
New Age Retro Hippie: Plays during two of the game's most ludicrously short and easy boss battles
Battle Against an Unsettling Opponent: Plays during a very short Zero-Effort Boss Battle
Megalovania: Plays for the few seconds that Mr. Dink "becoming tame" takes
Worst Map: Plays for the few seconds that Sponge unavoidably getting killed by Meat takes
Cursed Cathedral: Plays in a confusing and difficult but rather short level
Byunei's Nest: Is the theme song of Meat's Core's pitifully weak first form
The Spirit Chaser: Is the theme song of Meat's Core's highly stun-lockable second form

7 Mood Whiplash

For example:
* The boringly normal Green Grass Zone is immediately followed by the horrifyingly weird main part of the game
* Daksu's Hideout is immediately followed by Bird Hell
* Bird Hell is immediately followed by the Urinary Sea / Lemonade Lake
* The Urinary Sea is immediately followed by Ringo robbing Sponge at gunpoint
* Alternatively, the Urinary Sea is immediately followed by Mr. Dink trying to molest Sponge
* Pasta Land (one of Mario's/Luigi's nightmares) is immediately followed by Sponge's Early Years
* After the extremely innocent first few parts of Sponge's Early Years, Sponge gets sent to Mario Hell
* Sponge getting sent to Mario Hell is immediately followed by Sponge getting sent to Chat City
* Chat City looks like Heaven while Dark Chat City looks like Hell
* The hilarious Rewind Fortress is immediately followed by the somber Cursed Image Land

8 Unexpected Gameplay Change

For example:
* Green Grass Zone is a Super Mario Bros parody while Daksu's Hideout is a Metroid parody
* Sponge's boss "fight" against Daksu actually is a quiz
* The second part of Bird Hell is a chase scene in which Sponge gets chased by Smile Ghosts
* Sponge "fights" Ringo Starr and Mr. Dink by using Earthbound's combat system
* Sponge gets forced to play Mario's Early Years in Sponge's Early Years
* Chat City is about talking to characters rather than being about jumping onto platforms
* The first part of Rizon Land is a U.N. Squadron parody
* Cursed Image Land is upside-down and features inverted climbing controls
* The final part of Cursed Image Land forces Sponge to use gravity flips as a substitute for jumps

9 Soundtrack Dissonance
10 Joke Boss

Daksu: Is a Quiz Boss who doesn't even punish Sponge when Sponge incorrectly answers his questions
Ringo Starr: Is "fought" in an impossible-to-lose Earthbound "battle" that is exactly ONE TURN long
Mr. Dink: Is "fought" in an impossible-to-lose Earthbound "battle" that is MUCH funnier than Ringo's
The Dancing Sausage: Is a clone of Super Mario Bros 3's Boom Boom
Sponge's Early Years: Is "fought" in an impossible-to-win Cutscene Fight
The Chat Cowboys: Use short-range projectiles while Sponge uses long-range ones
The Rizon Heads: Can ridiculously-easily be destroyed over the course of TWENTY SECONDS
Meat's Core: Has both an absurdly weak first form and a pitifully small and stupid-looking second form
