** Speaking of bullfighting, notice how Flamenco in the Wii version will taunt Mac into hitting him ("Venga, venga!!") before actually attacking. That's an actual rule of bullfighting: you don't actually start the event until the bull makes the first move.

* When I heard about the supposed DownerEnding in PunchOut Wii's "Mac's Last Stand", I didn't quite get it at first. [[spoiler: Three defeats, and Mac simply retires.]] Then I saw the cutscene leading up to it, and then the ending scene. Then it clicked into my head. It was Mac's conscious decision. He's already become the world champion, and defended his title. He's already made his dream a reality. But he can't hold on to that title forever. Further along the line, there may be scandals, and perhaps a losing streak that will force him to retire anyway, going out with a whimper. So, he [[TakeAThirdOption takes a third option]] - [[spoiler:go out with a bang. And he makes his decision damn clear to Doc, who reluctantly goes along with it.]]

* Glass Joe's record when you first fight him is 99 loses. Once you come back to him in TD, he has headgear, that protects his head. Get beaten 100 times in total, thereby matching Glass Joe's TD record, And ''You get the same headgear he has'' as a gift from the WVBA. [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation So was that doctor Glass Joe seeing in the intro to his TD fight part of the WVBA?]] [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Are they actually trying to make it harder for you to win?]]

* In the Exhibition mode of Punch-Out!! Wii, there's one challenge in which you must beat Great Tiger using only right jabs. At first, it sounds like it's going to be a weird fight, but after a bit of research, presenting the left hand, friendly or otherwise, in Indian culture is offensive because the left hand is considered "unclean." Keep in mind that Great Tiger is Indian.

* Doc occasionally asks Mac if it's past his bedtime. This is not only a case of AntiPoopsocking but it's lampshading the fact Mac is a KidHero, something that people often forget.

* Super Macho Man apparently lost his title to Mr. Sandman but still was adored by women and the paparazzi in spite of his defeat. After Super Macho Man's loss to Little Mac, the Title Defense mode shows that same fanbase shunning him. Why? The match with Little Mac was probably expected to be an easy win for Super Macho Man.

** Alternatively, Mr. Sandman was considered too intimidating for the press and fans (Doc described Sandman's dominance as a reign of terror and claimed that the fans wanted a new champion). Little Mac, being far more charismatic and approachable, ended up being the one to steal Macho Man's fanbase and sponsors instead.
