* AwesomeMusic: So many [[AwesomeMusic/KatamariDamacy it has its own page]].



* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: As great as the entire soundtrack is, ''A Song For The King Of Kings'' is a definite chart-topper.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMH49ieL4es Katamari on the Rocks]] definitely qualifies. It plays during the opening sequence and last level of the first game.

* {{Woolseyism}}: Believe it or not, the ridiculous dialogue is completely intentional (and in some cases, an accurate and direct translation of the idiosyncratic diction used in the original game).

* JustForFun/XMeetsY: ''Bubbles'', an early 1980s arcade game by Williams, meets ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', 'VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'', or any other late-1990s brightly-colored 3D collect-fest.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Out of all the cousins, Marny gets a ''lot'' of appearances in official art, wallpapers and the like. This is probably due in no small part to his simple, yet very distinctive shape; the obvious implications of which in this universe have been acknowledged, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/KatamariMarnyProblem.PNG as seen here]].

*** [[UpToEleven Even more painfully,]] the "Drive" mode makes it so you only get '''''THREE''''' minutes, granted, with a speed exchange, but still, time crunching at the max.

* AccidentalInnuendo: Odeko's distinctive shape has spawned many a cheap joke at his expense. The fact that he's explicitly ''proud'' of his long head, and is prone to exaggerating its length, doesn't help.



* FanNickname: In some circles, the King's crotch - yes, really - has been nicknamed "[[GagPenis The Bulge of All Cosmos]]".
* FreudWasRight: Odeko's distinctive shape has spawned many a cheap joke at his expense. The fact that he's explicitly ''proud'' of his long head, and is prone to exaggerating its length, doesn't help.
* HilariousInHindsight: The magazine ''Anime Insider'' had a section on Japanese video games, rating them on the basis that Japan should either "Export It" or "Keep It". One of the games reviewed as Katamari Damacy. It was given a "Keep It" rating, the reviewer considering the premise too strange for Western audiences, and doubted it would be well received.
** Althought while it got an American release, it never got released in Europe for that exact reason.

* ContestedSequel: ''Beautiful Katamari'' is really short unless you shell out for the various DLC stages. This rubbed some the wrong way for obvious reasons.

*** Even worse: When it returns for Katamari Forever, that time gets cut in half.

*** As if the above wasn't enough, Cowbear is also followed by two smaller Kintaro-Bears running in front of and behind it, which are very easy to roll into by accident. A commonly suggested strategy here is to first grow just big enough to knock over the smaller bears, but not catch them, and roll into them and wait for them to run away. Then you can keep on rolling around and getting big enough to catch Cowbear. And even if you carefully avoid everything and grow big enough, it's fully possible to run out of time...
