** Several of the Carnival Challenges in the Wii U version of Mario and Sonic can become this since the price to enter them ''doubles'' with every failure, and unless you know all the tips (which are ''locked'' until you first hear them), you're likely to find a challenge that doesn't even make sense. How many people know what a Dump is in Beach Volleyball anyway?

* BrokenBase: The fact that Rio 2016 newcomers such as Nabbit, Rosalina, Zazz & Rouge are Guest Characters which means they are locked to One Event each in Rio 2016 Wii U. Some people are just happy you can play as any of the staple characters in any Event while others think it's just as much of a ScrappyMechanic as locking all characters to certain Events like in London 2012 3DS & Rio 2016 3DS to point of being put off buying Rio 2016 Wii U.
** In addition, Rio 2016 Wii U replaced The Dream Events set in the Mario & Sonic Locations with Duel Events set in Locations around Rio has caused mix reactions. Some are okay with it while others see them as [[ReplacementScrappy Replacement Scrappies]] because the Dream Events were the part they mostly looked forward to. Although to be fair, [[OlderThanTheyThink the first game featured generic locations for the Dream Events]], so make of that what you will.

* CriticProof: Reviews for all four games were low, and the mainstream doesn't seem to care. It's mainly because fans wished that this crossover would be used for {{Platform Game}}s instead.

* GrowingTheBeard: While the first game (Beijing 2008) wasn't bad by any means, it was a quite underwhelming minigame-a-thon. [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Only four Dream Events, and the Mario and Sonic characters seem to be there just to be there]]. Come the sequels Vancouver 2010 and London 2012, everything was shifted into overdrive. Four new characters were introduced to expand the roster, Boss Characters were introduced, The handheld versions were given their own little story modes, Dream Events were expanded upon and actually took place in iconic locations from both franchises, and the games overall were given a lot more personality, making it stand out from the other Mario spinoffs.

* {{Narm}}: Males can take part in female-centric events such as synchronized swimming or rhythmic ribbon gymnastics. Cue snickers as [[LGBTFanbase Bowser]], [[FatBastard Wario]], or [[StoutStrength Vector]] participate.

** In the Rio 2016 closing ceremony, one of the characters used for the linking sequence for the handover between Rio and Japan was Mario, complete with a Warp Pipe set up by Doraemon. ItMakesSenseInContext.

* HarsherInHindsight: If one were to think that the Sonic characters remotely remember ''[[VideoGames/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Sonic 06]]'', the scene where we see Rouge as the rival of ''Winter'' kinda yanks your heartstrings a little. We see Rouge against Shadow here, when in ''06'', she said she wouldn't betray him. What's more, Shadow is the one that calls her out on it. Whether you see them as PlatonicLifePartners or as romantically involved, this is quite disturbing. Same thing applies for ''Sochi'', except it's likely that Rouge was brainwashed by Dry Bowser and Eggman Nega, and there's no dialogue that calls Rouge out on that.
* HilariousInHindsight: Peach was meant to be an opponent in the Wii version of ''VideoGame/PunchOut'', but was taken out due to beliefs on violence towards women. Cue the Wii U version of this game where Peach is playable in boxing.

* BaseBreaker: Zavok and Zazz. Their inclusion in ''Rio 2016'' is a very sour point for those who can't stand ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' and/or the Deadly Six. Others aren't so bothered, as they're only 2 out of a roster of about 40 characters in the game.
