* CreatorKiller: Greenblat's stress with working on the anime (in which he was character designer and had no creative input), combined with the fact that he felt that he was [[ToughActToFollow unable to come up with anything as successful as PaRappa]], effectively drove him out of the video game industry (although he with Matsuura attempted a failed comeback with the 2009 flop ''Major Minor's Majestic March'').



* NoExportForYou: Why, Sony, why?! (It was, however, shown in the Central Europe region. With subtitles.) There's a Latin American Spanish dub as well.

!!Both ''[=PaRappa=]'' and ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' examples
* {{Bowdlerise}}: The American versions of ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' and ''[=PaRappa 2=]'' went through an admirable amount of this.
** In ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'', the cutscene for Stage 6 was re-animated so that Lammy gets flung back through time and ends up on an exotic island, instead of dying and going to Hell. Also, the line where Yoko threatens to kill Lammy with her guitar (before she remarks that she's already dead) was removed and dubbed over.
*** Certain lyrics were changed too. References to the devil were changed to "a man" ([=PaRappa=]'s version) and "somebody" (Lammy's version) (while "The angel's been mean to me, that's for sure" became "My friend's been mean to me, that's for sure" in [=PaRappa=]'s version), "...so you can play in Hell" became "...so you can play in an island", "Choppin' the trees down for the fun" became "Knowin' that we're here for the fun", and "Chop all of 'em down, every single one down" became "Come on and get down, way single one down". (In [=PaRappa=]'s version, "I love choppin' down trees just for fun" became "I love rockin' to the beat just for fun" and the entire "Choppin' down trees, just for fun" lyric became "Rollin' up high in the sun".)
** In ''[=PaRappa 2=]'', all references to God were changed to "the man", the lyric "...tastes better than wine" was changed to "...you better get in line", and "Warm the buns" became "Toast the buns" (to avoid AccidentalInnuendo). However, they didn't seem to mind [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar "Slurp it! Suck it! I know you all like it!"]]

* HeyItsThatVoice: Is it just us, or does Lammy sound like a younger version of [[Series/GreysAnatomy Dr. Callie Torres]]?

* NoExportForYou: Narrowly averted with the spin-off album ''Make it Sweet!'' Let Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} explain:
** "In the United States, the album was not released due to the commercial failure yet critical success of [=UmJammer=] Lammy. Due to that, the album was put for download on the Internet for free, although not on iTunes or Rhapsody."
