* UnfortunateImplications: Gaijin Goomba explains why it's subverted with the national portrayals of Punch Out Wii characters [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ME6PUW_jM-c here]]; he observed that the stereotypes were used to add character to the opponents instead of reinforcing negative stereotype, causing player to find them endearing rather than offensive.

* JerkassWoobie: It's not hard to view Super Macho Man in Title Defense this way. It's clear how frustrated and bitter he is over losing all his fans to Little Mac and doesn't seem to have any fans of his own anymore, while being booed and subjected to ProducePelting throughout the fight. Sure he's still a cocky asshole, but it's not hard to see him as sympathetic.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: It's a testament to how good the character writing is that, while ''Punch Out Wii'' has stereotypical characters, they are beloved by fans in their countries of origin (like Super Macho Man, for American audiences) for being portrayed stereotypically, yet PlayedForLaughs. It also helps that the devs of the game, a Canadian company, also took a jab at themselves with Bear Hugger.

** Princess Peach was originally intended to be the BonusBoss in Punch-Out Wii until being replaced by [[spoiler: Donkey Kong]]. 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.

** Princess Peach was originally intended to be the BonusBoss in Punch-Out Wii until being replaced by [[spoiler: Donkey Kong]].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.
