** Riggs Construction members make their exits in... memorably explosive ways. [[spoiler:In Riggs' case, though, this isn't so permanent.]]

* RidiculouslyHumanRobot: In ''Robopon 64'' Robopon can eat human foods such as cake and grow from seeds like plants.

* {{Gonk}}: Quite a few Robopons' evolutions, particularly in the first game--Uggy is one example. Even more jarring if they evolved from something cute.

* OneGameForThePriceOfTwo: Much like how {{Pokemon}} uses its two versions to limit which mons can be found in which games, Robopon uses its two versions as a way of making [[GottaCatchEmAll sparking every Robopon]] much more difficult, especially in the second game; certain Robopon can only be created by "Link Sparking" with another person, and certain battery combinations may make different Robopon in different games (Ion+Moon in ''Ring'' version creates Sunny, while the same combination in ''Cross'' creates Sun-Zero).

* RaisingSim: ''64'' makes you care for your Robopon, give them tasks, and clean your room often, as if you don't rats will eat Robopon seeds before they can born.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The entire Macroworld/Waffle section of ''Ring'' and ''Cross'' is chock-full of this. Mr. Waffle is a washed-up computer maker, who was put out of business when a fire consumed his headquarters, Waffle Tower, twenty years ago. Now, his rival Mr. Gait has taken over the market with Macrosoft computers. [[spoiler:Things get nasty when you learn that he sabotaged Waffle in order to facilitate his little takeover....]]

* OddballInTheSeries: ''64'' is weird even by ''Robopon'' standards, featuring Robopon growing from seeds like plants and eating human foods like cake, being part action game/RPG and part raising sim, and being the only 3D game in the franchise.

* TournamentArc

to:

* TournamentArcTournamentArc: Both games have Cody competing in tournaments to become the very best.


Added DiffLines:

* WidgetSeries: ''Robopon'' as a whole is fairly weird, with a quirky sense of humor and a story that doesn't take itself too seriously until the endgame.
