** Inverted with Piston Hondo, as he wears all white in Title Defense mode. But given that he's Japanese, [[ShowingTheirWork the connotations of wearing all white are equivalent to a Westerner wearing all black]].

* AllStereotypeCast: Most of Mac's opponents starting in the second arcade game are national/ethnic stereotypes. These include a cowardly Frenchman, a Canadian lumberjack, the Vodka Drunkenski (aka Soda Popinski) from Russia, a militaristic German guy whose stage music is Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, a Bruce Lee Clone from Hong Kong, a old martial arts master from China, an aggressive Irishman, a Flamenco-dancing Spanish ladies' man, and more

* AgonyOfTheFeet: When you knock off King Hippo's manhole cover in the Wii version's Title Defense mode, it lands on his foot - much to his dismay.

* SuddenlyVoiced: ''Everyone'' in the Wii version (including Little Mac, who doesn't have any lines in the main game, and King Hippo, who just has inhuman grunts), thanks to the addition of voice acting. Mac does speak in the live-action commercials for the Wii game, but has no actual dialogue in the (cel-shaded) game itself.
** Mac has a few lines in Head-to-Head mode between rounds, but they don't always play.
* [[SurprisinglyGoodForeignLanguage Surprisingly Good Foreign Languages]]: Numerous foreign languages at that in the Wii game. Next Level Games didn't BS on the boxers' native languages, to the point that Great Tiger speaks Surprisingly Good ''Hindi''. Most people wouldn't be able to even ''tell'' you what language they speak in India.[[note]]Which has several official languages, including English, as well as Punjabi, which is spoken by one [[MemeticMutation Daler Mehndi]]...[[/note]]
** The Wii game was developed in Canada, which has the highest per-capita immigration rate in the world. At least in urban areas you can expect someone to know that, though probably not the two dozen or so other languages that are spoken regionally.

* DeverlopersForesight: In Title Defense, even if you lose the belt to any of the challengers, you get the same intro cutscene in rematches. Against Mr. Sandman, the same cutscene that plays in Contender Mode's Title Bout against him plays if you rematch him in Title Defense after losing the belt to him. [[note]]They forgot about this in Mac's Last Stand, however; if you take one of your three losses to Mr. Sandman, the next time you face him his "champion" intro will play. If you beat him you'll see a cutscene of Mac regaining his belt and Doc congratulating him on doing so, even though in this mode lost belts are lost for good.[[/note]]
