* AntiPoopSocking: When you return from a walk after playing for half an hour, the game will suggest you take a break. If you play for an hour, a warning will come up urging you to save.

to:

* AllDogsArePurebred: Played straight. Every puppy you adopt from the kennel is a purebred. Also played straight with the cats, though they're not referred to by their breeds.
* AnimalGenderBender: Subverted. All the Calico kittens are female.
* AntiPoopSocking: When you return from a walk after playing for half an hour, the game ''Nintendogs + Cats'' will suggest you take a break. If you play for an hour, a warning will come up urging you to save.



* ArtisticLicenseBiology: In order to diversify the dogs, many colours were added that go against the Breed Standards or are outright impossible.



* CallARabbitASmeerp: The three cat breeds in ''Nintendogs + Cats'' aren't referred to by name. American Shorthair's are called "Standards", Siamese cats are called "Orientals", and Persian's are called "Longhairs".



* CatsHateWater: Downplayed, they only meow in displeasure a lot when they have to be showered, which obviously happens quite rarely as they groom themselves a lot and brushing them is sufficient.

* SeriousBusiness

to:

* SeriousBusinessSeriousBusiness: The contests are a big deal. Justified as real-life dog contests do often have a lot of spectators.


Added DiffLines:

* VagueAge: Your dog is just ambiguously a puppy. They're weaned and adoptable, meaning they're over 3 months, but can still drink formula. They also still have young puppy proportions, meaning they're under 6 months.

Added DiffLines:

* AwesomeButImpractical: Many owners of the second title might want a house full of cats however, as cute as they are, the cats aren't really that useful. It is very hard to make money off cats as they can't go for walks or even enter any contests. They're also less interactive than dogs (they won't come if yo call, can't play with several toys, etc). There's a reason the game is called ''+ Cats'' and not ''And Cats''.

* GuiltBasedGaming: Any pets that you choose to donate will become visibly sad for the last few moments it's on the screen, and eventually turn its head away from you and refuse to look at you, even if you rotate the screen.

This is averted (or perhaps for some people, [[NothingIsScarier made even worse]]) in the 3DS games, where you don't see the soon-to-be donated pet at all - just a message stating that the hotel will find it a new owner.

* MarketBasedTitle: ''Nintendogs + Cats: Golden Retriever and New Friends'' is labelled ''Shiba Inu and New Friends'' in Japan, due to the relative popularity of the breed in that country. The Shiba Inu didn't become popular outside of Japan until nearly a decade later, thanks to [[MemeticMutation the internet]].

* ArtEvolution: The dogs in ''Nintendogs + Cats'' are a lot fuzzier, on top of the boost in realism due to the more higher quality graphics.



* AugmentedReality: ''Nintendogs + Cats'' has an AR mode. Really fun when you have your puppies/kitties standing on the palm of your hand.
