* FingerlessHands: Despite these, the Miis can still participate in a number of sports that require them to hold things, from tennis to ''bowling''.

While ''Wii Sports'' is looked down upon by certain fanboys for its lack of depth ([[TropesAreTools but for something like this, you don't need a plot]]), but for the motion sensing features of the controller and what it has done for video games, it has caused a big ripple effect that's still being felt today. Its [[CasualVideoGame easy-to-understand, pick-up-and-play nature]] has allowed people who don't play video games to get into it. Retirement centers are buying Wiis for the elderly to use, and use them they do. It's become the one video game that can be easily demonstrated to someone else when they ask you "why do you play video games? What makes them so fun?" Of course, by demonstrating a simplistic sports game, you're failing to capture the appeal of more complicated games like ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. But, much like ''Anime/SailorMoon'' was the "[[GatewaySeries gateway drug]]" for anime fans, ''Wii Sports'' is the same for video games.

* ComicalOveracting: In Bowling, if you go to make your throw and then end up dropping the ball back behind you, ''the entire alley'' flips out, jumping in a spin and shrieking.
* DivorcedInstallment: There were plans to make this a ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' sports game, but players took a liking to their Miis, so it became what we have today.
** And then a [[MarioSportsMix Mario-themed sports compilation game]] was made anyway.
