* CulturalTranslation: In ''Pocky & Rocky 2'', all of the names were changed to Western ones, references to Japanese folklore are changed (Momotarou became "Captain Peach", for example), Pocky's Ofuda and Gohei are called "magic cards" and a "magic wand", and the kanji on said cards are replaced with hearts (though the giant kanji in Bomber Bob's throw attack was left intact). It's still a relatively minor example, as the hearts were the only visual change and everything still looks and feels very Japanese.
** The youkai were renamed "[[BlessedAreTheCheesemakers Gorgonzola Goblins]]" (!) in the intro for ''Pocky & Rocky''.

Come 1993, a SNES game featuring little Sayo-[[JapaneseHonorifics chan]] and Manuke, a leaf-throwing Tanuki is released in the west as ''Pocky and Rocky''.

The series also have a SpiritualSuccessor with ''HeavenlyGuardian'', which is the result of the developers losing the license after Taito was bought out by Creator/SquareEnix.

* ClothingDamage: Sayo/Pocky's health meter in ''Pocky & Rocky 2''. Her clothes are tattered (but not to {{Fanservice}} levels) when she has one hit left, and she can collect armor (or bunny ears [?!]) for an extra hit. If you're familiar with the health system of the first GhostsNGoblins game made by Capcom, then you should know the full story!

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: Averted with the original ''Pocky & Rocky.'' Sure enough, however, by 1994 the Western box art for ''Pocky & Rocky 2'' has the characters looking less cute and much angrier.
