* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Like with WesternAnimation/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow, many episodes featured a montage of some sort with a cover song during the show's initial run. The songs were taken out during reruns and on the DVD, and a great many of them were replaced with what sounds like a SuspiciouslySimilarSong to Music/MichaelJackson's "Beat It".

Added DiffLines:

* StockFootageFailure: Early on in "The Big Game" Lana crashes into Simon and they land on the couch. The shot of the couch is copy-pasted from another episode, complete with ''the cast sitting on it'', resulting in there being ''two Simons and two Lanas''.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Some case of YouDontLookLikeYou would be justifiable, given the abstract NES sprites and [[CoversAlwaysLie sloppy NES covers]]. There's no excuse for Megaman, who's pretty clearly ''blue'' in both.

** When you really get right down to it, this whole show is one big TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A mega-crossover between videogames could have been brilliant if the writer actually bothered to research what games they were using.

* TheScrappy: Difficult to say, given the multiple bastardizations amongst the supporting cast. But even fans of the show generally hate Megaman and Kid Icarus due to their annoying verbal tics, Megaman moreso due to his grating voice and more blatant inaccuracy (even non-fans should be able to tell that Megaman should be ''blue'')..

* SpecialEffectFailure: The episode "How's Bayou?" wasn't quite finished when it first aired, and as a result, several shots were missing their backgrounds. Reruns of the episode had the backgrounds intact, but for some reason, the [=DVD=] set uses the original, unfinished version, as does the version on Jaroo (the "Hulu for kids' shows" site).

* {{Squick}}: The episode "Mr. and Mrs. Mother Brain". Simon ends up under the influence of a love arrow and falls for Mother Brain. Alright, that's bad enough, but later on, Mother Brain ends up falling in love with him. Okay, really gross, but then they become engaged and ''almost married'', and somewhere in between those two events Simon imagines them '''having children!''' Granted, this is all fixed by the end of the episode, but still! Gah!

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Simon is something of a stealth TricksterMentor that is trying to teach the rest of the team, especially Kevin, to be more functional. Simon seems to pull very sudden 180ºs from bumbling idiot to kicking serious butt.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Note that Gameboy appears in the entries for The Scrappy ''and'' Ensemble Darkhorse.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Note that BaseBreakingCharacter:
** You either like
Gameboy appears in having his moments of snark and not being as clueless as the entries rest of the team, or you hate him for The Scrappy ''and'' Ensemble Darkhorse.being a douche in his debut episode, which also had a large plothole regarding why Lana's father couldn't just come himself.
** Simon Belmont is often decried for his whining, incompetence, snootyness and borderline-InNameOnly appearance, but some fans looking back on the show find him more interesting than Kevin, as he was flawed and thus seemed more like a real person, plus he showed character development as the show went on, such as gradually warming up to Kevin season by season.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Fans looking back on the show seem to take a liking to Simon Belmont. Reasons for this include: being just more interesting than Kevin, he was flawed and thus seemed more like a real person. Showing character development as the show went on, such as: gradually warming up to Kevin season by season. (That is, if you do get past on how totally different he was than in [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI the original source]], incredibly ironic when you notice that Simon usually gets touted as the biggest case of YouDontLookLikeYou by the original game fans)
** Gameboy for having his moments of snark.
** Also Mike, who got only one episode but was a major part of a very emotionally-driven episode.
** Mother Brain seems to have developed a following in her own right.

** With Punch-Out's King Hippo as one of the main villains you'd a Punch-Out episode or at least other characters from the game to appear. Nope! All you get is a one minute scene in one episode of King Hippo's world, featuring no other game characters and that's it!
