* The final boss in Yon, [[spoiler: Doppleganger Arle]]. They did have to put the blocks to summon a million garbage blocks on BOTH sides!

** The ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' characters have single-letter names directly referencing the various Tetrimino shapes; the English version makes this less obvious by giving them longer but phonetically identical names. (For example, T becomes Tee, J becomes Jay and L becomes Elle.) Oh yes, and Satan is STILL Dark Prince.

** In ''Yon'', A magic trick at a travelling carnival has Carbuncle disappear, only revealing at the very end that it was [[spoiler: Doppleganger Arle]] who stole him in order to lure Arle to them after Satan accidentally released them from a prison they presumably want to trap Arle in. Notably, with the portable version, it completely drops the UnfortunateImplications and plays it straight as AllJustADream.



** 7 has something along the lines of, "The 7 wonders of the world, to play Puyo with 7 players." [[spoiler: Turns out it isn't much of an excuse, though.]]

** Console ''Yon'' uses an inverted variation of "unbalanced skillset." Characters with situational Super Attacks are given quick charge times...but the quick charge times don't make the attacks any less situational.

** Also, Arle steadily got more cruel and heartless with her put-downs, with only her encounter with [[spoiler: Doppleganger Arle]] making her, seemingly, realise how much of a monster she's turning into.

** A meta case happened with ''Puyo Puyo Tetris''... No-one thought to check if Ubisoft had PHYSICAL media rights to all Tetris games...

** All over the place in the English translation of the first game. Arle is called Silvana, Nasu Grave is called Blue Ghost (despite being neither), Panotty becomes...[[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Johnny]], and [[{{Bowdlerise}} Satan is called Dark Prince]]. Out of these, "Dark Prince" is the only name change that sticks, as it is also used in ''Puzlow Kids'', the Neo Geo Pocket Color port of ''Tsu'', and the Game Boy Advance ''Puyo Pop''.

* MissionPackSequel: ''Nazo Puyo'' and ''Nazo Puyo 2'' for the UsefulNotes/GameGear are basically the first Game Gear ''Puyo Puyo'' minus Scenario and Endless Modes. The only major distinction between the two ''Nazo Puyo'' games are their title screens, music, and Continue options. (The first uses passwords while the second has battery-backed storage.) The third GG Nazo Puyo game, ''Arle no Roux'', averts this.

** ''Puyo Puyo Chronicle'' also focused on RPG mechanics in an attempt to avert the trope, this time for the ''Anniversary'' line of games.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Nazo Puyo: Arle no Roux'' lets the player take a (larger-than-normal) health penalty to give up on the current puzzle and receive a new one. ''Rulue no Roux'', on the other hand, cruelly subverts this by making the puzzles that you passed on earlier in the game reappear near the end.

** Schezo's habit of his words causing AccidentalInnuendo causes some questionable conversations. Arguably the biggest example is Amitie and Ringo mistaking Schezo's botched up speech in ''7'' as a suggestion of '''having a threesome'''.

to:

** On the cover of ''Pocket Puyo Puyo'', it shows a picture of [[http://i.imgur.com/ETPBXv7.png Arle vaulting over a red Puyo.]] Seems innocent enough...until you notice Satan in the background completely red in the face from [[PantyShot what he saw.]]
