* StrategyGuide: A few of the NES-era issues were actually written to promote and detail single games -- namely volumes 13 (''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros13''), 15 (''VideoGame/NinjaGaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos''), and 17 (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'').

* SelfDeprecation

to:

* SelfDeprecationSelfDeprecation: In Volume 100, one page is a list of things that equal 100. Among them is the running time of ''Film/SuperMarioBros'', followed immediately by the approximate number of people who went out to watch it. In a follow-up issue, one editor responded to a reader's letter about the movie jokingly stating that 100 was also the number of speed bumps they installed in order to keep people from leaving the movie early.

Shortly after it ended, a spiritual followup of sorts was printed in the form of ''Magazine/NintendoForce Magazine'', made from {{Ascended Fanboy}}s of ''Nintendo Power'' who have chosen to organize their own magazine, featuring talent coming everywhere from 1UP to ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily''.

''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily''. Former NP editor and senior writers Chris Slate and Chris Hoffman have also kept the magazine's spirit alive through their own podcast, ''[[http://powerpros.podbean.com/ Power Pros]]''.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Probably has something to do with the magazine no longer being published by Nintendo, but rather by Future US. Even when it was published by Nintendo, there was still traces of this.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Parodied by Chris Hoffman, who insists that [[SonicTheHedgehog Tails]] is a mutant squirrel despite being a fox. Played straight in a few other examples.



* HeyItsThatGuy: Some writers, such as Scott Pelland, Casey Loe, Steven Grimm and George Sinfield have previously done work for strategy guides, video game translation, etc. This is often pointed out by fans in the "Pulse" section.



* OfficialFanSubmittedContent: NP held a "VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} Robot Master Design" contest, and two entries, Wind Man and Knight Man, were used in ''VideoGame/MegaMan6''.



* PromotedFanboy: Steven Grimm, an Animal Crossing fan, has been spotted in the credits for ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing: City Folk''. He appears to have gotten a job at Nintendo, because he's also credited in ''MarioParty 8'' and ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising''.



* TheRedStapler: An example of the trope in action, as Songbird Ocarina ads featuring ones like in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' were a staple of the magazine for at over 12 years, from '99 right up until its cancellation.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Reading old issues will obviously feel like this. Also, the focus on printing game strategies, until 2005, gave the magazine a distinctly 90s feel, i.e. from before Internet usage was so widespread that someone could find these strategies easily on the web.
