* {{Mondegreen}}: No, Bald Bull is not yelling "Allah ackbar" when he throws his right hook; a tasteless joke like that would never fly with Nintendo anyway. When he winds up he yells "Ah lan!" (basically, "Take this!"), and when the hook is dodged he says "Ach be!" (basically, "Oh, no!").

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreakingCharacter
** Narcis Prince. While he does have quite a few fans, and is a common subject for fan artwork, he also has something of a HateDom, mostly from fans of Aran Ryan, who feel that Narcis tries too hard to be a pretty boy by comparison.
** Heike Kagero. With the {{Bishonen}} archetype being itself so divisive among western gamers, Heike correspondingly has just as many people who love him as those who consider him to be just creepy and weird.


Added DiffLines:

* TheScrappy: Mad Clown is perhaps the least popular character from the series (not counting Mr. Dream), and is seen as a lazy re-skin of Bear Hugger. While there are many other {{Palette Swap}}s in the series, Mad Clown is easily the most blatant of them all.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite only being the third-to-last boss in the SNES ''Super Punch Out!!'', Hoy Quarlow may well be the game's hardest opponent, due to his incredibly fast and powerful counter-attacks, which allow him to really whale on you if you get careless. By contrast, Rick and Nick Bruiser are more {{Mighty Glacier}}s, with the difficulty in their fights (especially Nick's) being more in actually taking them down before the timer runs out.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, the hidden final boxer in the Wii version was going to be [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Princess Peach]]. However, it was decided that having Little Mac beat up on a girl (even one that holds her own in the SuperSmashBros) wouldn't be a very good message to send, so she was swapped out for [[spoiler: Donkey Kong]].

** Many people will agree that Mike Tyson is the hardest opponent in the entire series, and Mike Tyson is infamous for being one of the hardest bosses in ''any video game ever". His quick reflexes & brutal attacks really make him a challenge.

** The series is known for using national stereotypes, as opposed to racial stereotypes. People generally don't seem to be severely offended even though they recognize the stereotypes; the characters seem more cartoonish than realistic. It also helps that [[SelfDeprecation both Next Level Games (Bear Hugger) and Nintendo (Piston Hondo) are taking the piss out of their countrymen too.]]

* SpiritualLicensee: Stereotypes aside, these are the best ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' games ever made.

** Von Kaiser has a number of fans due to his characterization and design.



* GoddamnedBoss: [[spoiler:Donkey Kong in the Wii version.]] His style of fighting is similar to Don Flamenco's, where he taunts you, dodges your attack, and then follows up with an attack of his own. However, with him it's not ''one'' attack, but several--up to five in a row--before you can counter punch. And here's the kicker: if you fail to dodge even ''one'' of these attacks, you only get a few counter punches, which won't be enough to damage him. While he's not considered the hardest opponent in the game, he's certainly one of the most annoying due to how he tends to run down the clock with his style.

** Princess Peach was originally intended to be the BonusBoss in Punch-Out Wii until being replaced by [[spoiler: Donkey Kong]] [[DoubleStandard because they didn't like the idea of Little Mac beating up a girl]]. Now with Little Mac being a playable character in ''Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U'', both can now duke it out in the ring. For added irony, they added the guy they didn't want beating up girls to the game that added more female fighters than the entire rest of the series combined.
** [[spoiler:Mr. Dream from the later versions of the NES game]] hails from Dreamland. So does [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} a pink puffball created by Nintendo 2 years after the version with Mr. Dream was released]].

** As mentioned, Princess Peach was DummiedOut in the Wii title due to worries about a male character beating up a woman. Years later a new Nintendo boxer, ''VideoGame/{{Arms}}'', features a girl who looks much like Peach as one of the playable characters (amongst other female characters). It could be an intentional reference or a coincidence.
