** The first game was released as ''Tetris Attack'' in the US, and featured characters from ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', making it a ''double'' doll-up with both ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'' and ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]''. This version was released in Japan for Game Boy and the Satellaview, without the ''Tetris'' license.

The original ''Panel De Pon'' came out for the Super Famicom in 1995. The plot ([[ExcusePlot such as it was]]) starred a fairy named Lip trying to rescue her friends. Since no self-respecting gamer would buy a game featuring 'girly girls' in those days, Nintendo decided to do the infamous palette and name swap, the same way they did to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''. The US version was {{dolled up|Installment}} as ''Tetris Attack'' in 1996 with identical gameplay but with a ''very'' superficial ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'' theme[[note]]much of the original game remains intact visually, with only character art, the title screen, and a few musical pieces being changed[[/note]], a few extra options and character profiles, and ''nothing to do with Tetris at all''[[note]]but since Yoshi has starred in previous falling blocks games like ''Yoshi's Egg'' and ''Yoshi's Cookie'', the idea of using ''Yoshi's Island'' characters is not too far-fetched[[/note]]. This version was simultaneously released for the SNES and Game Boy, and was also brought back to Japan as ''Yoshi no Panepon''. It later saw two ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''-themed reskinnings: ''Pokémon Puzzle Challenge'' for Game Boy Color, which was almost a proto-''VideoGame/PuzzleQuest'', and ''Pokémon Puzzle League'' for Nintendo 64, which introduced a "3D" mode with a cylinder of blocks instead of a stack. It had "battles" between Pokémon played out in puzzle matches, and some adventuring on the side. The name "Puzzle League" stuck in western releases: a Game Boy Advance compilation release (along with ''Dr. Mario'') simply entitled it "Puzzle League," as did the DS version.

* {{Cap}}: The score capped at 99999 in Endless mode in the original SuperNintendo version. In ''Pokémon Puzzle League'', this was increased to 999999. The GBA version lets you choose which to use, as well as sort of {{lampshad|eHanging}}ing this by recording your fastest time to each one.

** There is a display {{cap}} in the Super Nintendo games. The first thirteen chains above "x13" will appear as "x?" in the same style as the preceding multiples; the character's attack sprites will continue to travel to the top of the opponent's screen, but will not increase the block's thickness rating above x12.

* DefeatEqualsFriendship: In the story mode of the SNES games, for the first eight stages the protagonist (Lip or Yoshi) battles their friends who have been put under a spell. Winning against them breaks the spell. You also gain fairy allies this way in the ''Nintendo Puzzle Collection'' version.

* HarderThanHard: Hardest in the SNES version, Very Hard, Super Hard, and Intense in the later games. Generally only applies to 1-Player VS Mode, though.

* LandOfFaerie: The kingdom where most of SNES ''Panel De Pon'' and its [=GameCube=] ''Nintendo Puzzle Collection'' incarnation take place in. It seems to be made up primarily of {{floating continent}}s above a much larger landmass (which is in danger of flooding in Lip's game).

** Corderia/Bowser can't even be fought ''on Normal'' in the SNES version. You have to be on Hard or Hardest to face them. The same is true for Lance in ''Pokémon Puzzle Challenge'' and Gary's rematch in ''Pokémon Puzzle League'', and Mewtwo in the latter requires no less than Very Hard.

** It doesn't help that the framerate (and thus the speed at which blocks appear, are created from garbage, and fall into gaps) is doubled from the SNES to its higher iterations: 30fps in the original, 60fps in ''Pokémon Puzzle League''!

* HopelessBossFight: Subverted by the Special Fight in Stage Clear/Line Clear mode (first encounter against Thanatos in ''PDP'', first encounter against Bowser in ''TA'', Morty in ''PPC'', and Butch and Cassidy in ''PPL''). Even though it moves at an absurdly fast rate for that point in the game, you can beat the boss if you're skilled enough. However, it doesn't reward much aside from an alternate scene and the satisfaction of having won.
