Getting rid of the simpler, redundant That One Level entry.
* ThatOneLevel: The fifth level in the original, thanks to a sudden DifficultySpike in having to out-rap every previous Master.

Giving Um Jammer Lammy its own YMMV page
!! Both ''[=PaRappa=]'' and ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' examples:

!! Both ''[=PaRappa=]'' * BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Level 7 of ''[=PaRappa 2=]'' has DJPJ's booth crashing through the wall and ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' examples:causing a power surge. The level then continues as if nothing happened.

!! Both ''[=PaRappa=]'' and ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' examples:* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: According to Prince Fleaswallow, "Money money money is all you need."

!! Both ''[=PaRappa=]'' and ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' examples:* SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}: The Bathroom Rap... PERIOD.

* ScrappyLevel: The fifth level in the original (thanks to a sudden DifficultySpike in having to out-rap every previous Master) and the sixth level in ''Lammy'' (while not as difficult to play by itself, some people find the background music for the level to be simply god-awful).

!! ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy''-only examples: * AnimationAgeGhetto: See "WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids" * BigLippedAlligatorMoment: After Lammy has eaten too much pizza and tries to run but collapses, a parade of expectant bunny parents led by Cathy Piller marches out of nowhere and sings a brief version of "Treasure", which describes that BabiesMakeEverythingBetter! This gets us all like "WTH?" ** [[LampshadeHanging Even Lammy is confused by it.]] * LoveItOrHateIt: Depending on who's listening, "Taste of Teriyaki" is either one of the [[AwesomeMusic/PaRappaTheRapper best]] songs in the series, or the ''[[HellIsThatNoise worst]]''. * ThatOneLevel: Many players have the toughest time with Cathy Piller or Teriyaki Yoko. The former gets [[BreakingTheFourthWall lampshaded]] in the game. ---> '''Rammy''': "I hate this stage!" * WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: At least in the European version, where PEGI gave it a ''3+'' for [[http://www.pegi.info/en/index/global_id/505/?searchString=lammy "violence that is set in a cartoon, slapstick, or childlike setting"]] due to Stage 6 [[spoiler:being that, like in the Japan version, [[YouCantFightFate Lammy has died due to a]] BananaPeel [[YouCantFightFate accident and ended up in hell,]] where Teriaki Yoko sings about {{Satan}}, his [[HornyDevils wanting to hook up with her, and her wanting to have dinner with him]], [[DreamingOfThingsToCome as foretold by Chop Chop Master Onion in her dream sequence]]]]. The U.S. version thankfully averted this by {{bowdleris|e}}ing the entire Stage 6 to make it "kid-friendly", for fear that it would get a "Teen" rating if it were unaltered.

*** The "Taste of Teriyaki" song itself. There's a reason it's under LoveItOrHateIt below; the whole thing just sounds otherworldly and threatening, [[PlanetHeck which is very fitting for the stage]]. And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8irurO5ru8 the MilkCan: Make It Sweet remix]] makes it even ''more'' terrifying.
