** TD Disco Kid appears to be channeling Richard Simmons. And his intro is a total riff on the dance scene from ''Film/{{Flashdance}}''.

* ArtisticLicenseSports: The game doesn't care for weight divisons. Little Mac is the wrong height, size, and age for boxing yet is allowed to fight. Mac is a 17 year old fighting amongst adults. He's 107 pounds and 4'8 in the original game (upped to 5'7 in the remake). He can fight amongst people at over twice his size, such as the 440 pound Bear Hugger and 290 pound Bald Bull.

* EnemyPosturing: Several of the boxers in the Wii remake will taunt you at least once during the match, essentially giving you a free hit. You can also fill up your star meter if you hit them right when they're blinking yellow.

King Hippo meanwhile appeared as one of the major lackeys to [[VideoGame/{{Metroid}} Mother Brain]] in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'', though no other characters from ''Punch-Out!!'' ever appeared in the show for some reason.

** One of the comments Doc Louis can give about Bald Bull is that if Mac can't beat him at boxing, he should try arm wrestling, a reference to his cameo in ''Arm Wrestling''.

** Title Defense as a whole is a reference to the arcade games where, after beating the FinalBoss, the game would loop, and the opponents would get stronger.

* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught: Is present in the SNES and Wii installments, the former much more so.
** Dragon Chan can deal a ton of damage with a barrage of headbutts, [[OneHitKill knock you down instantly]] with a kick move, and can regenerate his health through meditation. And the kick isn't even quick; he leaps around the arena just to wind it up.
** Masked Muscle headbutts and can occasionally [[CameraScrew obscure your vision by spitting in your face,]] making it so all of your punches miss for a short time. You apparently [[LampshadeHanging call him out for it]] should you lose to him, but he firmly denies it.
** Heike Kagero occasionally attacks you with his hair.
** Mad Clown juggles balls and throws them at you.
** Hoy Quarlow brought a goddamn ''staff'' to the match, and he has no qualms with reminding you. Also kicks.
** [[TheDragon Rick]] and [[FinalBoss Nick]] Bruiser use an elbow attack that will ''[[InterfaceScrew temporarily disable one of your arms]]'' if it hits, though Nick uses it far less than Rick.

** Aran Ryan in the Wii title is all about this. He puts horseshoes in his gloves before the Contender bout, uses said gloves as a makeshift mace via rope in the Title Defense bout, and will often attempt to headbutt the player regardless of the bout.


Added DiffLines:

* TakingYouWithMe: In the Wii installment, Aran tries to hit the player just as he's knocked down. During the contender bout, he never gets close enough to, so nothing to worry about there. During the Title Defense bout, however, the mace he makes from his old, horseshoe-power gloves give him just enough reach to give you a good smack on the way down. You can dodge it, though.

Little Mac has also appeared twice in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games; as an Assist Trophy in ''Brawl'', and as a playable character in ''4''.

Little Mac has also appeared twice in the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' games; as an Assist Trophy in ''Brawl'', and as a playable character in ''4''. He also cameoed in the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only adventue game]] ''VideoGame/CaptainRainbow,'' where he's [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall gone overweight from years of not boxing]] and needs help getting back into shape.

** Bear Hugger is so overweight that hitting him in the stomach doesn't do squat, so he has to be hit on the head. However, in the arcade and SNES Super Punch-Out!!, if the player waits a second, Bear Hugger will taunt the player, making Bear Hugger's belly vulnerable enough to stun him. In Title Defense mode in the Wii game, he wears a hat that makes doing so harder, so Little Mac has to wait for him to take it off to be able to do much damage.

** Aran Ryan in the Wii version. Mr. Sandman in Punch-Out!! Wii may also qualify, as he punches an entire building to rubble out of anger from having the WVBA title taken from him by Little Mac.

** Aran Ryan was an unassuming, generic opponent in SNES Super Punch-Out!!. Then they brought him up to the Wii version. And made him a ''completely insane'' dirty fighter, bringing good luck horseshoes into the ring (within the knuckles of his gloves) and eventually making a boxing glove whip, which is as ironic as anything when you consider that he was one of the few boxers in Super Punch-Out!! who generally fought clean, as his gimmick in that game (clinching) is common in RealLife boxing.

* CirclingBirdies: In the Wii version, this indicates that you've stunned the opponent and set him up for a flurry. In some boxers' cases, it's something different, and more appropriate to that boxer.
