Incorporation of Michael Jackson trademarks
In the beginning of level 1-1, in mimicking the Moonwalker movie, the environment appears dark until Michael flips a quarter into a jukebox which starts playing "Smooth Criminal".
When performing each attack move Jackson will shout "Wooo!", a sound he commonly made during his performances.
Occasionally, there is a brief cutscene between levels, in which Jackson shouts "Wooo!" or "Who's Bad?".
The jumping attack shows Michael raising up his arms, mimicking another dance move.
If Michael's energy is low enough (around or under 25%), he can perform his infamous crotch grab as an in-game taunt via a button sequence.
A Moonwalk can be performed if the player attacks and then suddenly pushes the directional pad in either horizontal direction. It can be used to cross quickly over hard-to-overcome obstacles, such as the conveyor belts from Level 5 and the spider webs from Level 4.
Michael has a spinning move which, if held onto long enough, forces all onscreen enemies to dance with him.
Many of Michael's Sounds such as "Hee-Hee", "Shamone", "Hoo!", "Ow!", "Who's Bad" are featured throughout the game.
After rescuing all the children on a level, Bubbles the chimpanzee will be magically carried to Michael where he will rest on his shoulders and point Michael in the direction of the level's boss battle.
