** Inventory management and Escargo Express in general. The $18 fee is a pittance, but they take a surprising amount of time to arrive and you can't call them in some areas of the game, which happen to be the areas where you find a lot of good stuff you don't want to throw away or leave behind but can't carry. A surprising amount of items you'd think would be one-use, like the [[spoiler: pencil eraser]], aren't, so you have to find a place to call Escargo Express and engage in inventory tetris. And then, if you are at all conservative with item use you WILL run out of space by around Fourside. Not to mention that half of Ness's inventory is taken up by useless-in-battle stuff like his ATM card and the Sound Stone [[spoiler: although you can trick the game into sending it to Escargo Express by loading up on Cookies early game, you know, [[GuideDangIt before you'd ever think to do so]], that Poo requires all his own food.... It never really gets better.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Orange Kid is presented as having a SmallNameBigEgo and being kind of a dick to Apple Kid. Later on in the game, though, he talks about Apple Kid having borrowed a book on Overcoming Shyness and how he wanted it when Apple Kid was done with it. Orange Kid may just be socially maladjusted rather than a spiteful {{Jerkass}}, especially since he's a good deal more polite to Ness.

Added DiffLines:

* PraisingShowsYouDontWatch: Before it attained its SacredCow status, it was very common to see people constantly praising the game and talking about how awesome it was. Its sales figures (Before it [[CrackIsCheaper rose to triple digits in the second-hand trade that is]]) would tell you otherwise.

*** And later on: Goddamned thieving Octobots! No, I wasn't going to use that Rock Candy, don't mind me. What makes this worse is YOU DON'T GET THE ITEMS BACK.

** Has a massive one with ''VideoGame/{{UNDERTALE}}'', with Earthbound fans rightfully calling it a little too similar to Earthbound and expressing anger over how it has gotten so much popularity despite not having as many features or mechanics as a game that came out 21 years before it.
