First released in 1985, ''Tetris'' products or other programs implementing the same game rules have appeared on nearly every video game console, computer operating system, graphing calculator, mobile phone, and PDA ever released, as well as the lighting systems for a couple of ''buildings'' (its simplicity makes porting it very easy). By far, however, the most famous and popular version was released on the Nintendo UsefulNotes/GameBoy in 1989, bundled with the system upon its release (and becoming its KillerApp at the same time, long before ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' was created). The first of that version's three musical options, a Russian folk song called "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korobeiniki Korobeiniki]]" (although the game just referred to it as "Music A"), has become an [[StandardSnippet iconic]] (and [[EarWorm catchy]]) piece of video game music.

* CoOpMultiplayer: The Tengen NES version of ''Tetris'' and ''Tetris: The Absolute - The Grand Master 2 PLUS'' both have co-op modes where both players place pieces in a shared extra-wide well. ''Tetris Kiwamemichi'' notably has a similar mode that allows up to '''four''' players to play together.

* PublicMediumIgnorance: Some people think all versions of ''Tetris'' play exactly the same, and as such cry "Fake!" whenever they see a TGM video.

** In modes that use a "Goal" system, ''Tetrises'' become these. Because they progress you to the goal much faster than other, lesser types of line clears, they can actually deprive you of scoring opportunities.

* AwesomeButImpractical: T-Spin Triples are impressive to pull off, and in games that recognize them will award more points and send more lines of garbage to your opponent than even a Tetris. However, setting up a T-Spin Triple requires a very precise and difficult setup compared to a Tetris, and can easily leave you with a mess that is costly to fix. Some games, in an effort to {{Nerf}} T-Spin Triples due to higher-skill players being able to pull them off with regularity, will only net the same award for a T-Spin Double if you do a TST, making it outright CoolButInefficient.
