* DummiedOut: The Virtual Console ports currently have no way of replicating the Transfer Pak's functionality, so no GBC players in the N64 version. Additionally, the four characters you could unlock in the GBC version via transfer (Yoshi, Bowser, Wario, and Waluigi) are no longer obtainable.

* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Spike, how in the ''hell'' do you get your ball to curve ''at a one hundred and eighty degree angle''?!?
** It's worth noting that while you can get your serves to curve, you and the computer can do this. Spike however does this with his drop shots, something you can never do.
* ConfusionFu: Tricky[=/=]Tactical characters like Boo in the N64 and GCN versions, Bowser Jr. in the GCN version, and Willy [[spoiler:Costello]] in the GBA version. They have insane amounts of spin on their balls which can catch a player off guard.

* JackOfAllStats: Mario, alongside other All-Around characters such as Luigi. Also Willy's partner Sheri and Rank 1 Varsity Player Elroy in the GBA version. In ''Open'', out of the unlockable-via-QR Code and differently colored Yoshis, the black one is one of these.
** They do have their differences though. Luigi for example had notably better reach in the N64 version, while Mario was more powerful.

* SecretCharacter: '''DK Jr.''' and Shy Guy in the N64 version. The handheld version had every tennis opponent you faced during either singles or doubles (meaning you had to play both singles and doubles to unlock them all) and the GBC version included prominent Mario Series characters that were unlocked by beating them in the last tournament ('''Mario''' and Peach) or by connecting your game with the N64 version (Yoshi, Waluigi, Wario, and Bowser).
** [[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo Connecting the GBC version of Mario Tennis to the N64 version]] also adds four human characters to the N64 version: the characters that you go through the Story Mode and their doubles partners. As there is no current way of replacing the Transfer Pack method, and no way of getting or connecting to the GBC game currently, you cannot unlock those characters in the VC version. Partially justified in that these characters stats depended on how you had leveled them up in the GBC versions.

* TheUnfought: Kevin, the Varsity Champion of the GBC game (and Varsity Coach in the GBA version), is never in a tennis match with the player (he is defeated in the Island Open by the Costello Brothers in both Singles and Doubles), and thus is never a playable character, despite Mark and Emily, the Junior and Senior Coaches respectively, being playable. In the GBA version, none of the original playable characters that appear in cameos are unlockable, save for obviously the Mario series characters.
** Other characters who're seen in the Island Open (Ellis, Edgar, Frank) are never played. Interesting that Edgar and Frank are just palette swapped.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Waluigi's voice was really different in ''64'' compared to how it would sound in every later entry. Though there are instances where he has his normal nasally voice, he more often sounded like he was putting on a tough guy falsetto.

A series of [[SportsGame Sports Games]] by Creator/{{Nintendo}} and, with the exception of the UsefulNotes/VirtualBoy installment, Camelot Software Planning (the two companies also partnered with each other on ''VideoGame/MarioGolf'') starring [[SuperMarioBros Mario, Luigi and the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom]] gang. The game gives you a large selection of characters all from the Mario universe. The game is also famous for the debut of Wario's brother (?) Waluigi.
