Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: The entire series. Not as widely played as the main series games, but beloved with a devoted fanbase of their own. Particularly applies to ''Explorers''.

* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: Many people believe the series' gameplay to be SoOkayItsAverage at best, but play the game solely for the story.

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Created by Arata Iiyoshi (aka [[{{Beatmania}} S.D.D.]]) & Atsuhiro Ishizuna, each series has many memorable tracks reprising several distinct melodies and themes. ''Explorers of Sky'' eventually unlocks a SoundTest where the player can listen to the entire soundtrack (all 141 songs!) at their leisure. Among the picks:
** The music that plays in Crystal Cave (Tracks [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_hx10qh1kM #43]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nw3syFwI2pw #44]]). If crystals could be played like musical instruments, they'd sound like that.
** How about Track #59, "Hidden Highland"? It makes a nice dungeon theme, but it is ''truly'' memorable for its use during the scenes when Dusknoir warns about being erased from history, and again during Grovyle's special episode for Dusknoir's HannibalLecture, and Darkrai's MotiveRant at the end of the epilogue story.
** Track #61, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxPrJaf3aWQ "Time Gear"]].
** Track #62, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP_AUhCJP6I "Through the Sea of Time"]]: First heard during the player's entry into the Hidden Land, this piece takes on a new meaning when it emotionally punctuates [[spoiler: Grovyle's HeroicSacrifice against Dusknoir]]. Track #63, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljkN1_rTpos "In the Hands of Fate"]], which reprises the same melody slowly and solo, is also heard a precious few times.
** Track #64, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dALXm4V3wbE "Temporal Tower"]], a very climactic theme to crawl TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon by, and itself echoes the melody from "Through the Sea of Time".
** Track #68, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2GLSOsscI4&fmt=18 "Dialga's Fight To The Finish!"]] is the BattleThemeMusic for the [[spoiler: (fake)]] FinalBoss (which ''also'' reprises "Through The Sea Of Time"'s melody), but in a faster, more climactic pace, that also [[TruckDriversGearChange shifts a half-octave higher]] during its final verse. You don't need someone to tell you that ThisIsTheFinalBattle when the music does this all by itself.
** Tracks #70 and #72, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlc7_hV65A8 "Don't Ever Forget..."]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7lyKuMIUx8 "Farther Away..."]], could be the single most [[TearJerker emotional]] theme in the entire soundtrack, considering that it's heard ''only'' after defeating the FinalBoss, right as [[spoiler: the change in history erases the player from existence, leaving the partner to return home alone]].
** Track #81, the cheerful melody of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGLa-jnK1Ok "Sky Peak Forest"]], can easily become an EarWorm. (You have been warned.)
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgTgGLV8CMI Random Dungeon Theme 3]], an incredibly adventurous theme that rivals that of many ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda'' overworld themes.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9alNcOd083c All]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3n3IjjFTT4 four]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wrLikpCrlU boss]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KBPCIOj4Z0 themes]] from both games, anyone?
** The main theme itself is pretty damn good.
** Special mention must also go to Rescue Team's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKMWMS7O50g Sky Tower]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYb5A1Yvhro Blizzard Island]] in the Explorers games, which is a medley of several dungeon themes from the first game(s), including Mt. Freeze, Sky Tower, Mt. Thunder, and Thunderwave Cave. Pure awesomeness.

** Pretty much ''every track in the game'' is CrowningMusicOfAwesome, EarWorm, or ''[[UpToEleven both]]''.

* FakeDifficulty: Since the beginning of the series, in some later dungeons, it's possible to run into Monster Houses, which house tons of very powerful enemies that are hard to dispatch without being killed. Overcoming one wastes a lot of resources. You're probably better off resetting if you encounter one, because it's ridiculously frustrating to take on and not fun.

** Due to the lack of genders in the original games, Attract could effectively disable anything in ''Red'' and ''Blue'' for several turns, even ''bosses''.

* CompleteMonster: While Classical Darkrai is a well-intentioned etheral entity that deploys a ghastly self defense mechanism, ''Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers'' is a far more loathsome beast. His first callous act is to make the [[BadFuture future]] a horrible place to live in by taking control of the time god, Dialga completely halting time, and sends the player back in time, giving them amnesia and transforming them into a Pokémon. He then sends his chief minion Dusknoir back to the present day to spread rumours that Grovlye (a hero who worked with the protagonist) is trying to ruin the world. Dusknoir takes the protagonist and their best friend to the future where he attempts to assassinate them by having his underlings shred them. (Keep in mind it's all but implied the protagonists [[WouldHurtAChild are]] ''children'' in this game.) When that fails, and his plans are thwarted, he goes to the heroes in a dream in the guise of Cresselia telling them to commit [[DrivenToSuicide suicide]] to save the world. When that fails, he uses the spacial [[OlympusMons god]] Palkia to assassinate the heroes again. That fails as well so he places another child into an eternal nightmare while torturing him and once again tries to murder the protagonists. Since that too, fails, he traps the heroes intending to kill them and nearly succeeds. He feels no regrets for his crimes and wishes nothing more than the complete and utter destruction of the world just so he can rule it the tattered remains as a [[AGodAmI god]].
