* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: Though many question the re skin and its relevance as a Sonic game even with it, its gameplay is considered as fun as the original ''Puyo'' game and a classic puzzle title even to those inexperienced with either the Japanese franchise or ''Adventures of Sonic''.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Easily the most popular ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' game outside of Japan, even with the release of ''Puyo Puyo Tetris''. Just visit any of the major ''Puyo Puyo'' videos on Website/YouTube and see how many commenters point out the similarities between the game in question and ''Mean Bean Machine''. In comparison, Kirby's Avalanche is much less known (though still popular in its own right), while the English arcade ''Puyo Puyo'' is so obscure that UsefulNotes/{{MAME}} initially only had bootleg-derived [=ROM=]s available, which caused some people to believe it was a fake until the official [=ROMs=] turned up ages later.

* WakeUpCallBoss: Other than Skweel above, Frankly, the second opponent, also counts. Not only does his method of stacking the first few rows of beans often cause combos accidentally, but he is also the first opponent to truly fight back.
* WarmUpBoss: Arms. He not only takes a long time to place his beans, but he doesn't even rotate them! He's still capable of making combos, especially on higher difficulties, but he doesn't pose much of a threat most of the time even at said difficulty levels.

* ThatOneBoss: Scratch is the last opponent before Robotnik, and he blatantly admits to cheating during the match. He's also incredibly good at making combos over and over again.

* NightmareFuel: This variation really amps up the pressure during gameplay compared to the cutesy original. When your area begins to overfill, not only is the 'panic' theme a more sinister fast paced remix of Satan's theme, but most of your opponents start laughing evilly or bare a creepy SlasherSmile at you. Notable examples include Frankly's fierce glare, Skweel's rapidly flopping head, and Dynamight's CheshireCatGrin.

* PolishedPort: The Game Gear and Master System versions, while not quite as visually impressive, have some nice features the Genesis version doesn't, such as an exclusive puzzle mode and an extra background near the end of the game. Robotnik's sprites also resemble his cartoon design more strongly than they do in the Genesis version.

* PolishedPort: The Game Gear and Master System versions, while not quite ''nearly'' as visually cosmetically impressive, have some nice features the Genesis version doesn't, such as an exclusive puzzle mode and an extra background near the end of the game. Robotnik's sprites also resemble his cartoon design more strongly than they do in the Genesis version. Sadly however, it also counts as a PortingDisaster from the Game Gear ''Puyo Puyo'' title it is edited from, which made a far more impressive attempt to replicate the Mega Drive/Arcade version's sound and graphics, with the Master System port of ''Mean Bean Machine'' only dumbing things down further.
