** Ein has three Confuse Ray users and two Toxic users to try and hax you out of turns and stall you out of HP with the passive Poison damage. His Lanturn and Huntail know Rain Dance to boost their Water attacks (and give Huntail a Speed boost since it has Swift Swim) and give Raikou and Lanturn [[AlwaysAccurateAttack 100% accurate Thunders]]. His team is also about 5 levels higher than the next strongest trainer you fight, so he may also overpower you by level advantage if you haven't been grinding.

** Venus is among the most tedious bosses to fight in the whole game. Her entire team except her Shadow Suicune knows Attract, which makes Pokemon of the opposite gender unable to attack 50% of the time. Her Delcatty hits surprisingly fast and hard, and on top of infatuation, her Vileplume can paralyze your Pokemon with Stun Spore, making them only able to attack '''20% of the time''' if affected by both. To make matters worse, her Pokemon have a sudden level spike from the Pokemon you fought previously by about 5 levels, which makes the fight more difficult to those who haven't grinded in preparation.

* FridgeBrilliance:
** At the beginning of the game, Es Cade promises to investigate Cipher for you. Yet throughout the game, he never once calls you to give you new information, and any time you visit him, what info he does have is stuff you've already known for a long while. At first it seems like he's incompetent, until [[spoiler: it is revealed that he's the BigBad]].
** Whenever you snag an Admin's Shadow Pokémon, in future battles, they will have a replacement for it. Gonzap will as well. When you fight Fein at the end, the man who is deliberately framing Wes for assault, his team (with the exception of Shadow Togetic) consists of the replacement Pokémon used by Gonzap and the Cipher Admins.

* BreatherBoss: After several tough rematches with the four Cipher Admins and before the battle with the head of Cipher, [[spoiler:Gonzap]] is actually not that tough at all. He even has some ArtificialStupidity, spamming Earthquake on the three of his Pokémon that have it, even though every time he does it, it knocks big chunks out of whoever else he has out at the time. Using Flygon makes it even funnier, since Levitate makes it immune to ground moves. His Shadow Skarmory can be a pain to catch, though. (Unless you swap-dupilicate the Master Ball, then it's a cinch.)

** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=um0pkcPFCLs final boss theme]] is probably the most epic theme in the history of the series.

* MemeticBadass: Wes.

* %%* MemeticBadass: Wes.



* SpoiledByTheFormat:
** A very light example: Most of the trainers, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard most notably two towards the end,]] use Pokemon that were technically available to you when the game was released. So, you'll see evolutions or pre- evolutions of Shadow Pokemon all over the place before you can snag them, sometimes way before. You'll see Spinarak all over the place, including one in the first city, but you get to snag Ariados just about halfway through. Colossseum uses Pokémon that are available in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' plus all the Gen II ones, including ones that evolve from Gen I Pokémon that are unavailable in ''Ruby and Sapphire''.

** In the context of the game, the encounter with [[BonusBoss Mirakle B.]] He's a LoonyFan of Miror B. who randomly shows up to battle you if you go all the way through Pyrite Cave to Miror B.'s hideout after beating Dakim ([[LostForever but before beating the]] FinalBoss). Beating him gets you nothing, and unlike with Miror B., you don't even get an easy way out of the area.

Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: One of the biggest for the series. ''Colosseum'' (and to a lesser extent ''Gale of Darkness'') remains very popular with long-time ''Pokémon'' fans, to the point where its fandom is almost as big as one of the main series handheld games.


Added DiffLines:

** The game as a whole is this to the ''Pokémon'' franchise. With its unique (for the series) premise, interesting snagging mechanic, [[NintendoHard higher difficulty]], [[DarkerAndEdgier overall darker tone and story]], awesome protagonist, fun and memorable characters (and their designs), among other things, very few ''Pokémon'' spin-offs even come close to receiving the near-unanimous love as ''Colosseum'' gets.

** Wes is this among the main protagonists in the series. Unlike the others who prior to the game's release and the next generation were 11 year old kids, Wes is an about 17 year-old ex-gangster with an overall cool design.

** Wes is this among the main protagonists in the series. Unlike the others who prior to the game's release and the next generation were 11 year old kids, Wes is an about 17 year-old ex-gangster with an overall cool design. In fact, Wes is used quite a lot as an example when players request or complain about the player being children and they want a more mature and older protagonist like him.
