** ''Ganbare Goemon: Ōedo Daikaiten'' (2001, [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation PS1]]): where the series went back to its 2D roots, with a 2.5D sidescroller, inspired from (and bordering on ripping off) Goemon 2 SFC.

* PolygonCeiling: Averted with the two first localized N64 games (the third, Goemon: Mononoke Sugoroku, being a Japanese-only version of Culcept), but played horribly straight in the 3D PS1 and the Only PS2 outings. Futuristic Punk Kid Goemon, anyone? Rumours say it was the reason Sony would not allow these to be localized. The Only redeeming factors in those outings (infamous for a blue void as a background, and horrible game designs) are its FMVs, or the Impact Battles pushing those systems to their limits.

** In ''Goemon's Great Adventure'' there's a sidequest in the Tree Stump Village involving a girl that wants to get ride of the crow tengus infesting the Wonder Valley. She asks you if you are the exterminator she hired and then she correct herself saying that said exterminator mentioned something about [[Film/{{Terminator}} wearing a leather jacket and sunglasses]].

* BalancePowerSkillGimmick: Goemon is the most balanced, Ebisumaru is the slowest and strongest, Sasuke is the fastest and weakest, and Yae has the most specialized moves (such as turning into a mermaid).

* CulturalTranslation: DefiedTrope. The first Nintendo 64 title is explicitly about a handful of quintessentially Japanese comedic heroes preventing a WidgitSeries-themed feudal Japan from being turned into a western-style fine arts theater.

** ''Ganbare Goemon: Uchū Kaizoku Akogingu'' (1996, UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation}}SX): a 2D sidescroller, inspired from Goemon 3 SFC. It ditches long-time [=PCs=] Yae and Sasuke for two ReplacementScrappy old men.
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Kuru Nara Koi! Ayashige Ikka no Kuroi Kage'' (1998, UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation}}SX): a full 3D game. Hit the PolygonCeiling pretty hard, and is widely considered the worst console Goemon game, save for its Goemon Impact sequences.
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Ōedo Daikaiten'' (2001, [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation PSX]]): where the series went back to its 2D roots, with a 2.5D sidescroller, inspired from (and bordering on ripping off) Goemon 2 SFC.
** ''Goemon Shin Sedai Shūmei!'' (2001, UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation}}SX): A spinoff with a futuristic setting and a new cast, with a young spiky-haired Goemon. Fans didn't appreciate. It was ported (with many cuts) to the GBA as ''Goemon New Age Shutsudō!'' (2002, UsefulNotes/{{G|ameBoyAdvance}}BA).

* ''Mr. Goemon'' (1986, Arcade) is a side-scrolling action game that is only thematically related to the later series, as it features a completely different gameplay and an art style based on ukyo paintings.

* Meanwhile, a plethora of GameBoy games have been released. Only two of them got released oversas:
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Sarawareta Ebisumaru'' (1991, {{G|ameBoy}}B): Released in Europe as part of ''Konami GB Collection Vol.3'' as ''Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon'' (2000, {{G|ameBoy}}BC). It is available worldwide on the 3DS eShop.
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Kuro Fune-tō no Nazo'' (1997, {{G|ameBoy}}B): a mediocre Zelda clone released as ''Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon'' (1998, {{G|ameBoy}}B) in the west.
* Other Japan-only GameBoy titles are:
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Tengu-tō no Gyakushū'' (1999, {{G|ameBoy}}BC): an RPG like the Gaiden Famicom series.
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Mononoke Dōchū - Tobidase Nabe Bugyō!'' (1999, {{G|ameBoy}}BC): Links with ''Mononoke Sugoroku''. Tries to capitalize on the Pokémon success.
** ''Ganbare Goemon: Seikūshi Dainamaittsu Arawaru!!'' (2000, {{G|ameBoy}}BC), the best GameBoyColor entry in the series: it plays like a port of Goemon 2 SFC.
* The PlayStation opuses were not met with nearly as much success as the N64 games.

** ''Ganbare Goemon Derodero Dōchū Obake Tenko Mori'' (1998. {{N|intendo64}}), Released in American as ''Goemon's Great Adventure'', and in Europe as ''Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon 2'' (1998, {{N|intendo64}}64): a 2.5 sidescroller. A highlight of the series.
** ''Goemon Mononoke Sugoroku'' (1999, {{N|intendo64}}64): A Japan-only spin-off board game, with Mons elements. Links with ''Mononoke Dōchū''.
* ''Bōken Jidai Katsugeki Goemon'' (2000, {{P|laystation2}}S2): A slightly DarkerAndEdgier attempt at reimagining the series, with a kid Goemon with a pet white tiger, and a more serious tone. Has cameos from long-time [=PCs=] Yae, Sasuke, and Ebisamaru. Has a complete [[VaporWare unreleased english localization]] by WorkingDesigns.
* ''Ganbare Goemon: Tōkai Dōchū - Ōedo Tengu-ri Kaeshi no Maki'' (2005, {{N|intendoDS}}DS): Marks the return of the series to its former glory, with a gameplay similar to the first N64 with better controls. Upon being linked to the GBA port of the two first SNES games, it unlocks various cameos from earlier games [=NPCs=].
