* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Attack Panels allow you to crash into and destroy enemies without suffering CollisionDamage or having to push them into a wall. Take dolls also attack by spinning.

** Of course, not many have probably tried this since the boss is one you can defeat EVERY TIME by doing absolutely nothing - just stand in place and she'll transform you, flip the block you're standing on, trigger the sumo body's "auto-stomp" move which makes him attack and flip all of the blocks in the direction he was hit from and it sends her flying into the wall for an instant win.

**With enough time and patience, it is possible to get Vinci dolls to draw on all of the panels, preventing them from attacking you and giving you an automatic win, complete with a [[PoseOfSupplication resign in defeat]]. This was mostly done to avoid an {{Unwinnable}} situation because you have no way of attacking them either if you have no panels to flip.

** Since the Mira dolls only move and flip tiles when you do, it's possible to make them kill ''each other'' if positioned correctly.

'''''Mendel Palace''''' (known in Japan as ''Quinty'') is a game set in a fantasy world where a player has to fight animated dolls in search of his younger sister, a witch who took his girlfriend away (in the American version, it's a [[SaveThePrincess princess]], but the concept's still the same). To achieve this, you have to travel through eight different dollhouses (comprised of ten rooms each, the last room being a boss battle) and attack the enemy dolls by flipping the panels from underneath them to send them flying into the wall. Once you've done that, you get to enter the witch's palace and fight her on her own turf to win back your sweetie.
