** [[DownplayedTrope A milder case]], but King Hippo's laugh when he wins in Title Defense mode. Its deep and surprisingly human tone is rather unsettling, especially coming from a character that largely speaks through grunts and roars.



* TheWoobie: The Wii version makes you feel sorry for Glass Joe and Von Kaiser (Glass Joe especially). Look at your [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chyTo3Y_vTo&feature=related defeated opponents gallery]] in Title Defence. It's hard not to feel sorry for King Hippo with his lip quivering, Bear Hugger looking like he's about to cry, the crushed looks of Disco Kid, Don Flamenco, or Soda Popinski -- even Super Macho Man has a face that could inspire some sympathy! The only exceptions are Mr. Sandman (who just looks absolutely stunned), Great Tiger (who simply looks like he's about to puke), and Aran Ryan... who could [[{{Squick}} perhaps use a smoke]]... And if you felt bad for Von Kaiser before, look at the mess he's become in the Title Defence review and his woobism goes through the roof.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

* CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** The original fight theme in the NES game is the most recognizable theme in the franchise and for good reason.
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpccRdanqEA Soda Popinski's theme]] on the Wii version. GloriousMotherRussia summed up musically.

%%* * CatharsisFactor: Awww, ''yeah''.These games are all incredibly difficult to win and take enormous amounts of practice to even just barely eke out a victory against the later challengers let alone delivering a CurbStompBattle against them. But when you do win, you ''will'' feel like a champion! Aww, ''yeah''!

** The sounds that Piston Hurricane, Aran Ryan, and Narcis Prince each make in the SNES version when getting knocked down are wonderfully satisfying.

* 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.
