** "So what's with that V-Watch on your arm, huh? You think you're some kind of VideoGame/{{Mega Man|Classic}} or something?"
* Joe himself bears somewhat of a resemblance to Proto Man from the same series, such as Joe's helmet looking similar and having a color scheme of red.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience[=/=]CompetitiveBalance: After beating the first game on normal (Adults) difficulty -- and the harder ones -- with Joe, three characters are PromotedToPlayable. They mostly have the same moves as Joe, but have their own stats and special abilities.
** [[color:red:'''Joe''']] - JackOfAllStats
** [[color:aqua:'''Silvia''']] - FragileSpeedster (she's faster than Joe, Alastor, and CB, her VFX bar lasts longer than anyone else, and she has the weakest physical constitution, causing her to take double damage).
** [[color:purple:'''Alastor''']] - LightningBruiser (VFX bar has to be activated manually a la [[Franchise/DevilMayCry Devil Trigger]] and drains constantly when he's in Henshin mode, has a longer jump, can adjust his falling speed while in Henshin mode, stronger than the other three characters, but not as fast as Silvia).
** [[color:blue:'''Captain Blue''']] - MightyGlacier (cannot see skull marks regardless of difficulty, has the ability to hover across the screen indefinitely, can jump twice as high as the others, but lacks a DoubleJump, and is stronger than Joe and Silvia).
** [[color:red:'''Dante''']] ([=PS2=] version only) - LightningBruiser (he's not as fast as Silvia, but still stronger than everyone else in the entire game)



* FragileSpeedster: Silvia in both ''Viewtiful Joe 1'' and ''[=VJ2=]''. On Adults (the default difficulty), '''she'll receive four times as much damage.''' The first game compensates this by giving her a lot of speed, while the second game gives her ranged attacks.
** In the second game, Silvia's speed is toned ''way'' down, but she no longer receives extra damage.

* YourSizeMayVary: In ''Red Hot Rumble'', Charles, Hulk, and Bruce all are shown to be as tall as they usually are, until you choose them for playable characters where they are considerably smaller (outside of using Zoom, of course). This becomes a little egregious at the Results screen where they suddenly are back to their normal sizes.

* BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame: To put out Fire Leo's flames so he can be attacked directly, Joe's only option is to set ''himself'' on fire with a flame that burns hotter. The only way to do that is to use the meteors he leaves behind and hammer them with Mach Speed until you catch on fire.

* DeconstructedTrope: TrappedInTVLand is deconstructed with [[spoiler:Captain Blue, who went through many problems. First, he makes a rise to fame, then he's yesterday's news. Then he goes to Movieland, but due to the fact that he's trapped with no way to get home or back to his family, he ends up going insane due to the stress]]. It's even worse, when you take into account that, even if he could socialize with the characters [[spoiler:of the films, he wouldn't be able to relate to them, because, no matter how realistic they are (or aren't), they're not really that relatable]].

** In the second game, Silvia's speed is toned ''way'' down, but she no longer receives extra damage.



** Dark Kaiser revolves around this--you have to catch up to the enormous mecha before it lays down punishment, because Dark Kaiser is invulnerable to attack until it opens its chest to unleash a missile strike, Jupiter pinball attack, or Saturn ring attack that traps you in a confined space. Also, those fire dragons can't hurt you if you punch the earth at Mach Speed and get a fire aura going. Yes, you have to ''punch out the freakin' Earth'' to keep giant flaming space dragons from burning your balls.
