** ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'' drops the difficulty a little bit when compared to the previous game but it is still difficult. This is mostly due to the addition of a third character who unlike the two from [[''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'' the second game]] is completely independent of the two Mario Bros. and makes dodging attacks much harder, especially attacks that attack multiple characters.

** One set of winners was even invited onto ''Series/BluePeter'', the [[LongRunner long-running]] MagazineShow that aired on the competing BBC1. ''That'' is how much of an event it was.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TokyoMirageSessionsFE'', mechanically a crossover between ''Frachise/ShinMegamiTensei'' and ''Franchise/FireEmblem'', also has bright cartoonish graphics that verge into TastesLikeDiabetes and a plot about [[IdolSinger Idol Singers]]... but don't let that fool you, the gameplay is as NintendoHard as you'd expect from its two parent franchises.

Added DiffLines:

* For being an innocuous little game about bouncing cat heads, ''VideoGame/CatPlanet'' gets difficult when it introduces threats that can kill the protagonist. Especially in the last stretch, where you become sandwiched between [[DemonicSpiders crows]] and deadly spikes.

** It might look gorgeous, and no sane player would expect a game about [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkeys]] collecting [[FollowTheMoney bananas]] to be hard, but worlds 5 and 6 cross the line rather quickly into NintendoHard.

* ''[[VideoGame/DonkeyKong DK]]: KingOfSwing'' wasn't too hard, so you'd expect ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong Jungle Climber'' not to be to hard either but the game had some surprises.

* Videogame/{{Tomba}}!/Tombi! for the PS1. You play as a pink haired dwarf who lives in a colorful world filled with psychotic pigs and carnivorous venus fly traps. Typically Japanese right? Well, it is in other aspects too -it often relies on timing to get somewhere without being killed, you need certain items (which you equip like an RPG), your life goes down very easily, and there are many occasions where the 2.5D of the game makes it look as if you can go somewhere you can't from that angle, leading to frustration.

* The obscure game ''VideoGame/IzunaLegendOfTheUnemployedNinja'' for the Nintendo DS has kiddy graphics, a light-hearted comedy storyline, and simple controls...but it's also a {{Roguelike}}, and therefore completely merciless.

Added DiffLines:

* In-universe example in the ''WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' episode, "[[Recap/SonicBoomS1E47FuzzyPuppyBuddies Fuzzy Puppy Buddies]]"; The Fuzzy Puppies board game is implied to be a lot more sophisticated and difficult to learn than the name and theme suggest. The playing pieces are adorable puppy figures that each have their own unique ability, they can be equipped with cute hats that also bestow different abilities, you need to have a balance of enforcers, decoys, and support puppies on your team to play it well, the playing board is a hex-grid, and a 20-sided die is involved.
