* EnemyPosturing: When you start Papu Papu's boss fight, he's protected by a shield. After you beat his [[FlunkyBoss flunkies]], he'll start laughing and gloating at you, which will cause his shield to dissolve and leave him open to attack.

* AsymmetricMultiplayer: Unlike ''MarioParty'', a few of the games give different attributes to each pair of characters. This is good for variety, but, as usual, some characters will probably be perceived as better than others depending on the game and the players. A good example is Crash and Coco using their spins as a "kick" in the crate war games, which cover all directions with less ending lag than the other kicks. In contrast, heavy characters like Koala Kong and Tiny can hurl crates great distances and do it fast, but cannot kick them far. Another example is Cortex and Brio having a charge move in the Panic (shoving) games that is more powerful but uses their entire charge bar instead of half of one. However, Dingodile and Rilla Roo have a less potent charge, but use less energy to charge their pushes.

** The Crystal challenge for El Pogo Loco has Ripper Roo creating Nitro squares instead of TNT ones. These instantly kills you if you get hit.
** The Crystal challenge for Drain Bash has the purple ? crates, normally breaking open with a kick to reveal Wumpa Fruit or special weapon inside, will instead explode and OneHitKill you if you kick them (the opponents naturally can open them normally). [[OutsideTheBoxTactic There's still a way to open it though...]] [[spoiler:by ''throwing'' the crate.]]

** The Crystal challenge for Metal Fox has yellow- and green-colored mines instead of the normal gray and black ones. These mines both replace the mines normally used by the players and fall from the sky in boxes. Getting hit by any mine from ''either source'' instantly kills you.

* CosmeticAward: Platinum relics are only good for increasing your completion rate and proving your supreme skill against computer opponents in that game.

* GangUpOnTheHuman: It zigzags depending on the difficulty level - in last-man-standing games such as Tank Wars, the AIs will usually off each other just as often as they try to off you. In Adventure Mode, however, this trope becomes more noticeable. In the Gem, Crystal, and Relic challenges, this trope becomes full-blown, with opponents neglecting easy attacks at fellow CPU opponents to kill you, and only you. However, Adventure Mode is hardly even meant to be fair; the Gem challenge usually gives your CPU opponents a numerical advantage of some kind, and the Crystal challenges usually give you a situational disadvantage.

* SpecialEffectBranding: in many of the minigames, each type of character would use things themed to them. For example, in the minigame Pogo Pandemonium, Crash and Coco use actual pogos, Dingodile and Rilla Roo use... some kind of modified pogo that shoots flames, Tiny and Koala Kong use spring coils attached to their legs, and Neo Cortex and N. Brio use JumpJetpack.

** In Polar Push and Crash Dash type of minigames, the edges of the arenas are pits that [[RingOut you can shove other players into.]] In the former, doing so eliminates them; in the latter, doing so will make them [[NonlethalBottomlessPits respawn next to their falling place with some time lost]].



** N. Brio was last seen in the second game where he helps Crash against Cortex if Crash collects all the gems. He comes back here, representing Team Evil alongside Cortex. This is a bizarre, erroneous choice on behalf of Eurocom, since Team Evil is forced to relinquish two of their candidates to the good side...neither of which include Brio, who hates Cortex with a passion.

** In Melt Panic, Uka Uka's ray's effects are always negative.
* CycleOfHurting: In the Crash Dash minigames, it's pretty easy to get knocked out of the tracks into the pit right after you respawn from it.



* DuelingPlayerCharacters: If playing a two player game with one good and one evil character, the two players must duel each other to decide whether good or evil triumphs. There are no ties, and tiebrekers are given after all games are played.

** The Crystal challenge for Mallet Mash has PoisonMushroom that you must not hit instead of the regular mushrooms.
* PaddedSumoGameplay: the "Panic" games involve shoving everyone else off before the time limit. While just one fall results in elimination, there are times where it's hard for one player to get the decisive shove on another, especially when it's down to two players who are moving conservatively.
