* MagnumOpus: This game is considered to be Creator/ShigesatoItoi's greatest work... outside of Japan. In Japan however, it's simply another thing he's done.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Funnily enough, this game is far more universally praised internationally than in Japan. See the ContestedSequel entry above. Also, the international fanbase of the series in general is constantly growing with younger fans who weren't even alive when the first two games came out, [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros in no small part due to]] Ness's and Lucas's inclusion in SuperSmashBros games. By contrast, Japanese fans of the series aren't really united into a fanbase and mostly consists of people who remember the games from when they were originally released. International fans often assume that the series has a fanbase in Japan comparable to theirs, but this is not the case.

** Averted in the case of Hinawa's name. Tomato almost gave her the name "Amber," which would have fit very well considering she's married to Flint (in Japanese, their names reference "Hinawa-juu" and "Furinto-juu," meaning matchlock and flint guns) but decided to leave that one alone due to ''SuperSmashBrosBrawl''[='s=] use of the name.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Don't let the colorful sprites/background and witty humor trick you, Mother 3 is a really dark world you're emerging. The game starts out bright and cute, but after [[spoiler: Hinawa's death]] everything goes downhill from there, to the point it becomes one of the most tragic {{Role Playing Game}}s of all time by the end. Aside the tragedy and intense drama, the amount of profanity will stagger as the game goes on, and there will be references to alcohol and mushroom drugs. Not to mention animal/child abuse being a small plot point (the latter comes from a line which stems from an imposter Flint during the MushroomSamba Arc).

* {{Fanon}}: 90% of fanart where the Masked Man[[spoiler:/Claus]] is unmasked he will have MismatchedEyes, [[spoiler:on the basis that Claus lost his left eye in the battle with the Mecha-Drago and when reconstructed as the Masked Man it was replaced with an artificial red one]].

* EnsembleDarkhorse: There's a pretty large fanbase for [[BlackMagicianGirl Kumatora]]. That's not to say Ana and Paula are unpopular either, but Kumatora tends to be the most beloved of the girls. The feisty attitude and frequent use of mild swearing help to set her apart. ** In hindsight, some fans believe she would have made a better representative in Brawl, considering that most of Lucas's attacks including the Final Smash of PK Starstorm weren't even his, but directly lifted from her moveset and given to him. Some even hoped she'd replace him for the fourth game. Even ''after'' Lucas returned to the roster, a large and vocal section of the fandom still believes she would be a great addition as a third representative.

* FandomRivalry: Enjoys a mild one with ''VideoGame/EarthBound'', mostly in terms of which game is the better one.

* GameBreaker: Kumatora's PK Ground, which dishes out several hits of 2-13% of an enemy's HP ''and'' can cause them to trip and a lose a couple turns. This attack works on bosses. She doesn't learn it until level 60, but once she does the rest of the game becomes pathetically easy.

It should tell you everything when [[ThatOneBoss the Masked Man]] becomes [[AnticlimaxBoss an absolute joke]] after learning it.
