  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Why can't Minnie just climb back up in the game?

Mickey Mousecapade, or Mickey Mouse: Adventures in Wonderland as it was originally titled in Japan, is the earliest known Disney-based video game to be released on the Nintendo Entertainment System, and one of the few not developed by Capcom (although they did publish its American release, it was developed by Hudson Soft). The game follows Mickey and Minnie Mouse as they venture through Wonderland to find Alice their mystery friend, who is being held captive by the evil Queen of Hearts Maleficent. Along the way, though, a lot of the creatures they encounter have decided for no apparent reason that the mice need to be exterminated, so Mickey and Minnie have to fight these creatures off as they look for their friend.


Tropes:

  • A Winner Is You
  • Cultural Translation: Capcom changed most of the items and enemies in the American version.
  • Gameplay Ally Immortality: Minnie can't get hurt by the normal enemies or the bosses' projectiles, so if you gather her stars at the beginning, she becomes a Game Breaker against the Cheshire Cat Witch Hazel and Captain Hook Pete.
  • Guide Dang It: The Winter section of the Woods. The hidden door to the final section is in the tree right at the start, but won't open until you go all the way through and loop back to the start, so many players would think there is no door there at all and eventually admit defeat and consult the helpline after shooting every other tree to no avail.
  • One-Hit Kill: All the bosses do this to you.
  • Respawning Enemies: This gets especially cruel on levels where you have to backtrack. Even the instant-death-on-contact minibosses respawned, which meant that you could get stuck in an Unwinnable situation if you missed the key in the castle.
  • Stop Helping Me!: If Minnie falls into a pit, Mickey dies along with her. Having to rescue her whenever the crow kidnaps her is also a hassle.
