* ThatOneSideQuest: Many of The Olympic Challenges in The Bonus Prologue Story of London 2012 3DS can be quite because they require expert skill.
** Many of the Plus Face Offs during Road To Rio in Rio 2016 3DS. The most notible ones would be Rosalina, Sticks and Dry Bowser since they need the most precise timing.

* 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. Weather 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.

* TheScrappy: It's easy to come to dislike the two Miis wearing Mario and Sonic suits respectively in "Road to Rio". The two are nothing short of shallow Mario/Sonic fanboys who immediately try to drag you into their feud the second you arrive. After that, the two will constantly badmouth the other team and blame the other side for everything from their team's captain being inactive to stealing their own medals from the Hall of medals.

It's no surprise to learn that they're working for Bowser and Eggman. [[spoiler:Though, given that Eggman brainwashed them in the first place you can't blame their actions]].

* ScrappyMechanic: Characters being limited to certain events in the handheld versions, a trend that began with London and is continuing with Rio.

After that, the one on your side keeps trying to pin blame on the other team for Mario/Sonic's absence while the other tries to discourage you by telling you that you have no chance at winning against his team.

* CriticalDissonance[=/=]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.
* DorkAge[=/=]{{Sequelitis}}: The ''Sochi 2014'' game. The direct sequel to the [[GrowingTheBeard Beard-Growing]] ''Vancouver'' and ''London'' games, ''Sochi 2014'' had big shoes to fill and had the unfortunate timing of being the first M&S game to be released on then-new Wii U, which made development and marketing awkward. Sochi also had no second handheld edition on 3DS (meaning no Story campaign, despite London 2012 having one), Dream Events (The staple of the Mario & Sonic series) were signifcantly cut (Vancouver 2010 and London 2012 had ''eleven'' and ''ten'' Dream Events respectively, while Sochi only has ''eight'') and had some pared down single player features that were done better in ''Vancouver''(Festival Mode) and ''London''(London Party). While not considered a bad game, ''Sochi 2014'' is definitely considered a step back in the series. Time will tell if the series rebounds with ''Rio 2016'', which is expanding the character roster and is back to having a second 3DS version.
