* PassThroughTheRings : The infamous Lex Luthor catchphrase "Solve My Maze!" from VideoGame/{{Superman 64}}'s first level was the staff's favourite aspect of all the sub-20%-scoring games they had reviewed, so for a stretch of issues following their conversion into NGC Magazine, they licensed an image of Lex Luthor and added a 'Solve My Maze' cut-out-and-keep footer to one page per issue, in a similar manner to child-level puzzle publications. The puzzles themselves were often nonsensical and impossible to solve. On the last month of the license period, [[spoiler:the segment changed to 'Solve My Murder', giving the Luthor image [[WingdingEyes X eyes]] and providing an open-ended puzzle to determine the murder weapon]].

The magazine began publication in the early 90's as Super Play, which focused on the Super NES and Game Boy. When the launch of the Nintendo 64 was imminent, the name changed to N64 Magazine, and when the Nintendo [=GameCube] and Game Boy Advance were approaching release, it changed again into NGC Magazine. The name [=NGamer=] was adopted shortly before the launch of the Wii, and remained until the January 2012 issue when it was renamed Nintendo Gamer. The magazine was published 13 times per year at 4-week intervals, assigning one issue to each month, then releasing the remaining one for Christmas. The staff work at Future Publishing UK, which since 2003 has also been the home of the UK Official Nintendo Magazine ever since Nintendo stopped publishing it themselves.

* RunningGag: So many that there's almost no chance of compiling a full list. One recent example is Ninja Cat, an item from {{Tenchu}} 4, which is their equivalent of the Chuck Norris jokes.
