The game opens with Scooby-Doo and the gang visiting Fred's cousin Jed at his special effects movie studio and factory Monstrous Fright and Magic or M.F.M. Still, once they get there, Jed is missing, and his animatronics have gone haywire. They find M.F.M. CEO Winslow Stanton and his assistant Marcy, who inform them Jed is responsible for sabotaging M.F.M. and has stolen not only some expensive animatronics but also an ample supply of Mubber (a special compound used to make animatronics into life-like special effects monsters). Scooby and the gang thus take it upon themselves to track down Jed and recover the stolen items.

Costume Slide Cancels
Costume Slide Cancels are when Scooby is in a sliding state by gliding across the ground for a certain period of time. Normally the game prevents you from sliding again as, at the end of a sliding state, the animation of Scooby getting up has a lot of end lag. In order to prevent the end lag of the sliding state, Scooby must have another Costume in the inventory to switch to. Switching to the other costume will cancel the end lag state. By switching I can switch back to normal Scooby and continue sliding as long as there is enough room to navigate around. This trick is used if there is a long stretch of ground without enemies or pits.
Clue Pan Skip
Clue Pan Skip is when the camera will automatically pan across the room to show the player where the clue is located, this will waste time automatically and is slower. The way this is prevented is by using a Costume on the frame the camera will move to the clue, switch back to normal scooby or costume and it will pan back to scooby skipping the camera pan entirely.
Rollercoaster/Boss Quit Outs
Levels will finish once the player successfully either completes a rollercoaster level or a boss level. The way I am able to skip seeing the victory animation is by pressing start on the first frame of the victory music activating, and quitting to the hub area. This saves a lot of time, as it gets rid of watching the victory dance/staring into your soul Scooby will do on bosses and rollercoasters.
Clue Quit Outs
By collecting the required amount of clues not on a rescue mission, I am able to quit out and back to the main hub, this skips having to complete the rest of the level overall.
Karate: Scooby will transform into a karate-style character that allows him to kick special boxes/pallets and kill enemies in one hit.
Bat: Scooby will transform into a bat-style character that allows him to fly through the air. Bat transformation is useful for gliding long distances as long as Scooby is on a tall enough platform to skip certain sections.
Archer: Scooby will transform into an Archer-style character that allows him to shoot arrow plungers. Arrow Plungers stick to walls which allows Scooby to climb tall walls. Arrow Plungers are also used for enemies who are either too tall to jump over or need to be downed if on 1 life.
Scooby? While in theory Scooby himself is a costume, but, it's a regular moveset. Mostly used from the Costume Slide Cancels.
Costumes require Mubber to activate, so before I can transform into any costume I need the bare minimum to get them. Where I am hitting enemies for Mubber that's why.
