* SpinOff: The short-lived ''Nintendo Power Advance'', concentrating on strategies for GameBoyAdvance games. Also, one might consider ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Power'' (a series of mini-magazines detailing ''Red and Blue'' versions and including a comic version of the first few episodes of the anime series) to be one.

* CaptainErsatz: One installment has Howard accompanying a duck to the moon. The duck's name is never given, but from the fact that the episode in question was based on the ''VideoGame/DuckTales'' {{NES}} game, it can be assumed that he is supposed to be Scrooge [=McDuck=].

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: Their [[http://video-games.wikia.com/wiki/Nintendo_Power_54:_Secret_of_Mana coverage]] of ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana''. More giant dragons, less of the cutesy sprites in the actual game.
** Long before that, the illustrations for ''VideoGame/DragonQuestI'' -- then known as ''[[MarketBasedTitle Dragon Warrior]]'' -- were darker than Creator/AkiraToriyama's designs.

* NotSoDifferent: Initially they had a rivalry with the now-canceled magazine ''Sega Visions'' thanks to the UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars. But then the {{Wii}} era came and Sega began partnering with Nintendo and rereleasing their old games on its Virtual Console, with many lampshades from the staff about how the magazine was now covering more Sega games than Nintendo games!

* AlienAutopsy: The walkthrough guide for ''VideoGame/BodyHarvest'' for the {{Nintendo 64}} includes one level where the PlayerCharacter has to rescue a captured [[TheGreys Grey]] from Roswell. One picture caption for the level humorously tries to guilt trip readers into sympathizing with the alien and make them feel bad "for having laughed at that alien autopsy video."
