* HopelessBossFight: Subverted by the first Thanatos/Bowser/Butch and Cassidy fight in Stage Clear mode. Even though it moves at an absurdly fast rate for that point in the game, you can beat him if you're skilled enough.

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

** Beating Cordelia/Bowser on Super Hard mode is exceedingly difficult. ** [[FinalBoss Cordelia]] & [[DolledUpInstallment 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 Gary's rematch in ''Pokémon Puzzle League'', and Mewtwo requires no less than Very Hard.

* DolledUpInstallment: The first game was released as ''Tetris Attack'' in the US, and featured characters from ''[[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Super Mario World 2]]'', making it a ''double'' doll-up with both ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}'' and Mario. Some of which have undergone a HeelFaceTurn. Then there was ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Puzzle League'', localized by Nintendo Software Technology Corporation from the then cancelled ''Panel de Pon'' sequel, which gave the series' most recent entry its title after removing the license. ''Pokémon Puzzle Challenge'' on the Game Boy Color was a ''Pokémon'' game in Japan too, but shows blatant signs of having been dolled-up during development.

The original ''Panel de Pon'' came out for the SNES in 1996, along with a Game Boy version. 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,'' 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]]. It later saw two ''{{Franchise/Pokemon}}''-themed reskinnings: ''Pokémon Puzzle League,'' for the N64, introduced a "3D" mode with a cylinder of blocks instead of a stack, and ''Pokémon Puzzle Challenge,'' which was almost a proto-''VideoGame/PuzzleQuest.'' It had "battles" between Pokémon played out in puzzle matches, and some adventuring on the side. The name "Puzzle League" stuck: A Game Boy Advance compilation release (along with ''Dr. Mario'') simply entitled it "Puzzle League," as did the DS version.

Added DiffLines:
* MarketBasedTitle: Oh boy. It's consistently been called ''Panel de Pon'' in Japan, but it's gone under the ''Tetris Attack'' name in Western territories and later ''Puzzle League''. More specifically: ** ''Panel de Pon'' = ''Tetris Attack'' ** ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}} de Panepon'' = ''Pokémon Puzzle Challenge'' ** ''Panel de Pon DS'' = ''Planet Puzzle League'' (NA) = ''Puzzle League DS'' (PAL)

** Butch and Cassidy are actually ''tougher'' than Giovanni because their stage isn't 3D, limiting the number of combos and chains you can make. * WeCanRuleTogether: In ''Puzzle League'''s story mode, Giovanni tries to get Ash to join Team Rocket.
