* EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame: You read that right; this trope applies to a ''FallingBlocks'' game! The cast of characters and the wacky situations that they are put in is a major selling point for some. Sega has definitely caught on, with the traditional games increasingly leveraging single-player and ''Quest'' serving as a never-ending stream of new characters. ** ''7'' is also notable in that many love the Transformation redesigns but hate the mechanic that they are tied to.

* PortingDisaster: ''Puyo Puyo'' for the Game Boy. This port, farmed out to Winkysoft of early VideoGame/SuperRobotWars fame, controls like garbage and is essentially unplayable on anything except a Super Game Boy due to lack of color differentiation. (Which, of course, defeats the point of porting it to a handheld in the first place.) Despite facing the same hardware challenges, the Compile-developed ''Pocket Puyo Puyo Tsu'' is a [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel Surprisingly Improved Port]].

** ''7'', on the other hand, is often seen as a blatant cashgrab. Transformation was hastily cobbled together from two side modes in ''15th Anniversary'', and the game has a fraction of the modes of ''15th'' [[TheyJustDidntCare for no good reason]].

However, [[AmericansHateTingle/VideoGames the general disdain for mobile games by western gamers]] definitely crops up at times, and ''Puyo Puyo'' announcement teases invariably attract snarky comments claiming that the announcement will be about ''Quest'' or another mobile game.

* ToughActToFollow: In terms of gameplay rules, Tsu rule has been the competitive standard for ''20 years''. Fever is the only other rule that gets ''any'' sort of attention, and even then it's not that much.

** The move to mostly humanoid, non-mythological characters started as far back as ''Sun'', where every single "new" character was at least partially humanoid and only one (Kikimora) was based on mythology.

* CutAndPasteTranslation: The English arcade game, and ''Puzlow Kids'' by virtue of sharing ending text with it. In addition to inventing the "Black Kingdom" (a group bent on domination at a galactic scale), the translation alternates between keeping the characters roughly the same as their original versions and turning them into [[CardCarryingVillain Card Carrying Villains]].

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: In a world where the internet is a profoundly vast world, ''Cranky Food Friends'' is getting endless flak for being an unacceptable cheap reskin of ''Puyo Quest''.

** ''Puyo Pop Fever'' is this for fans that enjoy the "easier" mechanics of Fever rule and/or prefer Sega's approach to character design and storytelling.

** Sun's voice work wasn't ''terrible'', but it is obvious that there weren't many professional voice actors on board. Some of the more egregious examples were [[TheOtherDarrin recast]] between the arcade-perfect Saturn port and the later N64/PSX/PC ports.

* ScrappyMechanic: ''Yon'' is not so fondly remembered due to its "super attacks". The more-overpowered attacks, when used by both sides, bring an already-slower game to a crawl. ** ''7'''s Transformation doesn't get much love either, with players claiming that the system is completely busted in terms of balance.
