*** The Wikipedia article for the game's soundtrack goes so far as to say that this is a sample, but it doesn't cite any sources.

*** Parappa's version of the song isn't much better. It's slower paced, with more outwardly ominous instrumentals to back up the more menacing feel.

* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Parappa 2'' isn't a ''bad'' game per se, but it's seen as the weakest of the three games. The main reasons include being [[SequelDifficultyDrop much]] [[ItsEasySoItSucks easier]] than the others, [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks being an almost entire retread of the first one,]] [[AnnoyingVideoGameHelper Boxy Boy's unnecessary tutorials,]] and some more. It's [[DownplayedTrope downplayed though,]] as it's still a very enjoyable game, if not as much as ''Parappa 1'' or ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy''. According to WordOfGod, the dev team took too long to push out ''[=UmJammer=] Lammy'' and ''Parappa 2'', failing to capitalize on the success of the first game while other rhythm based games came out to cash in on the genre's booming popularity.

* ItsEasySoItSucks: While the first game had some very unforgiving levels, the sequel is generally seen as swinging the difficulty too far to the other side due to the game making it actually harder to screw up or fail and getting a Cool rank is much easier.

** '''Lammy'''. [[ShrinkingViolet She's a ''very'' timid (sheep) girl]] [[MagicFeather without her guitar in-hand,]] and [[HumiliationConga somehow suffers an even more humiliating series of events]] [[CosmicPlaything in her own game;]] and all she wanted to do was get to her concert with her friends on time.

* CriticalDissonance: The games received mostly average reviews from critics, but fan response is more positive.

Hairdresser Octopus (among female players).([[DubNameChange Takoyama-san]] in Japan), particularly for his [[BrainwashedAndCrazy (temporary)]] [[LargeHam hilariously]] [[AlwaysCamp flamboyant]] and {{Keet}} [[SplitPersonality alter-ego]] and [[NonStandardCharacterDesign weird design even for PaRappa standards.]] Oh and as a plus, [[EarWorm how darn catchy his song "Hair Scare" is.]]

* {{Moe}}: Parappa is literally a rapping, beanie-wearing ''puppy''. What about that description doesn't sound like the most adorable thing in the world? On top of that, his voice in the anime is Creator/MiyuIrino doing the cutest voice he can.
