** BoringButPractical: Slider Shot requires one stats (Spin, which is one of the first to become accessible) to be boosted and is still a fairly solid shot.

* [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Loads And Loads of Yoshis]]: ''Mario Power Tennis'' gave Yoshi an unlockable ability to change colors whenever he used his defensive power. This was deconstructed in ''Mario Tennis Open'', where his colors are now QR singular characters for different categories.

* MightyGlacier: Heavy characters like Bowser and Petey. For a human example, look at Wario or B. Coz. An example of the former in ''Open'', Dry Bowser, takes it a little far with the glacier part -- his walking (as opposed to running like everyone else with feet) movement is the absolute slowest in the game, as if his bones were joined together by molasses joints, instead focusing on his power.

An example of Coz have slow movement speed making it [[DifficultButAwesome difficult to cover the former in court]], but enough power behind their swing to make life just as difficult for the competition. In ''Open'', Dry Bowser, Bowser takes it a little far even farther with the glacier part -- his walking (as opposed to running like everyone else with feet) movement is the absolute slowest in the game, as if his bones were joined together by molasses joints, instead focusing on his power.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the GBA installment, the two campaigns, Singles and Doubles, can be played through individually. As a result, one could complete one campaign before even touching the other. NPC dialogue can change in one campaign depending on your progress in the other campaign. For example, if one completes the Doubles Island Open before starting the Singles version, then the first opponent will acknowledge your Doubles victory, and ask you to go easy on her.

Square Peg Round Trope. You can't be a fragile speedster in a gameplay system that does not include the concept of fragility.
* FragileSpeedster: Yoshi, Toad in the N64 version, Baby Mario in the N64 and GBC versions, A. Coz in the GBC version. Though since there's obviously no sense of "damage" in tennis, it's more like "Speedster who can't hit the ball very hard."
