* UnexpectedCharacter: All but two of the Wii fighters (other than the BonusBoss) are from the NES game. One of the two, Bear Hugger, is understandable due to Next Level Games being Canadian. But Aran Ryan came completely out of nowhere, likely only being added for being an SNES exclusive character...or because NLG saw some [[AxCrazy massive potential in him.]]

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: While none of Little Mac opponents are bad (with the exceptions of [[CheatersNeverProsper Aran]] [[AxCrazy Ryan]], [[{{Jerkass}} Super]] [[SmugSnake Macho]] [[AttentionWhore Man]] and possibly [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Mr. Sandman]], they are still the game's antagonists and Little Mac much less cartoony in appearance than they are

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Replaces Glass Joe in ''Super Punch-Out!!''. Of course, Joe's his trainer, so it makes more sense than a Japanese boxer (Piston Hondo) replacing a Cuban boxer (Piston Hurricane).

* BilingualBonus: His ringman speaks only in Chinese. May have been a precursor to the Wii version having boxers only speak in their native languages.
** His name is one that's also a ShoutOut: Jackie Chan's stage name incorporates the character for "dragon".

* MyNameIsInigoMontoya: You have to respect the guy for entering the ring proudly declaring "Je suis Glass Joe!"[[labelnote:Translation]]"I am Glass Joe!"[[/labelnote]]



* ThePollyanna: In the Wii version, he's pretty energetic and optimistic for a guy who gets floored almost every time he fights.



** His name is one that's also a ShoutOut: Jackie Chan's stage name incorporates the character for "dragon".



* AdiposeRex: It's never stated outright if he actually is a king, but he at least styles himself as one and is ''the'' fattest boxer in the series.



* TheNoseless: As a part of his distinctive appearance, King Hippo is the only boxer in the series that lacks a nose.



* StoutStrength: He's the fattest boxer in the series, along with some of the strongest punches.

* StoutStrength: He's the fattest boxer in the series, along with some of the strongest punches. However, his girth means he can't get back up after being knocked down.



* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where The Hell Is Hippo Island?]]

to:

* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where The Hell Is WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: All we know is that Hippo Island?]]Island is somewhere in the South Pacific. Which doesn't really narrow it down.
