* GenreBusting: The series in its early days runs on the SCUMM[[note]]Script Creation Utility for ManiacMansion[[/note]] engine, mostly used for Creator/LucasArts adventure games and the other HumongousEntertainment series. While the point-and-click aspect remains, mainly for menu selection and player drafting, seeing an adventure game engine run a sports game seems ''bizarre.''

* InSeriesNickname: Every playable character has one.
* JackOfAllStats: Meta-example--the neighborhood kids are always [[CelebrityPower overshadowed by the pros]] because the pros specialize in their respective sports, while the neighborhood kids play many different sports. Each specific game also has their own general Jack of All Stats. Ex. in ''Baseball 2005'', it's Jorge Garcia, while in the 2001/03 versions it was Sally Dobbs.

one. There are only a few real-life players who actually have their real-life nicknames in-game: Carlos "El Pibe" Valderrama, Zach "The Beast" Thornton, Frank "The Big Hurt" Thomas, Randy "The Big Unit" Johnson, and a couple others.

* MaddenCurse: Much like the trope namer, the cover athlete in ''Backyard Football'' was also stricken by bad luck during the season. In the original game, Steve Young suffered a career ending injury in the 1999 season. In ''2002'', Drew Bledsoe got injured and UsefulNotes/TomBrady stepped in (and the rest is history). Jeff Garcia (''2004'') became a journeyman after that season, and Daunte Culpepper (''2006'') blew out both of his knees and wound up in the now-defunct UFL. While UsefulNotes/TomBrady (the ''2008'' cover star) guided the Patriots to a perfect regular season, they lost the Super Bowl that year.

** In ''Baseball 2005'', go into the Record Book and look at BBL Champions. [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Bob Loblaw]] is a default one.

* ArtifactTitle: Some of the games, especially later ones, feature no backyards at all. This is most prevalent with ''Backyard Hockey'', where ''none'' of the rinks take place in a backyard, and a good majority of them aren't neighborhood rinks either.



* NonIndicativeName: ''Hockey'' does not take place in a backyard.
