** Schezo [[spoiler:losing his head]] in the PC-98 version of ''Madou Monogatari II'' defines the entire ''Madou Monogatari'' series as far as the majority of the English fanbase is concerned.

** Puyo Puyo Tetris is surprisingly a popular import title, despite Puyo Puyo having very little presence among the western audience. According to [[http://puyonexus.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3203 an interview with Red Bull 5G and the producer,]] Hosoyamada Mizu, the demand has certainly not gone unnoticed.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Thanks to ''Puyo Puyo'''s obscurity in the West, the series is a constant victim. Not even Sega America can keep it straight; the N-Gage ''Puyo Pop'' uses ''Mean Bean Machine'' terms like "beans" for the Puyo and "refugee" for garbage, and an official Sega blog covering ''3D Puyo Puyo 2'' states multiple times that ''Mean Bean Machine'' was derived from ''Tsu''.

** ''Yon'' is rife with game-breaking super attacks. Compile's attempt to balance the moves by way of unique starting levels and charge rates [[FakeBalance completely falls flat]], as many of the faster-charging powers are situational at absolute best. The rule in general also counts in ''Box''; because Yo~n rule has every mechanic that Tsu rule has, there is essentially no reason to use Tsu (or its predecessor) over Yo~n outside of RuleOfFun.

** On one hand, Arle is limited to pairs only, allowing the pros to efficiently create their massive chains in whatever way they want to build it with less clutter. The drawback to this is that due to her low puyo count, she can potentially build chains slower than larger drop sets.

** On one hand, For Fever rules, Arle is a mixed bag. She's limited to pairs only, allowing the pros to efficiently create their massive chains in whatever way they want to build it with less clutter. The drawback to this is that due to her low puyo count, she can potentially build builds chains slower than larger drop sets.sets and has far less opportunities to offset to get into Fever. On top of that, she has to conform to having two X's on the field, meaning she can't utilize all of the space to build.

* FirstInstallmentWins: Zigzagged; not only does SequelDisplacement and EvenBetterSequel apply, Sega generally tries to keep Arle, Amitie, and Ringo at roughly the same level of importance. However, an internal poll conducted by Sega staff (and published in the 25th Anniversary Book) has nearly all of the major Compile-era characters capturing at least 1% of the vote[[note]]Carbuncle, Arle, the Puyo themselves, Suketoudara, Rulue, Schezo, Witch, Draco, and Skeleton-T[[/note]], while the newer entries are represented by Sig, Ringo, Yu & Rei (''!!''), [[UnexpectedCharacter Papirisu]] (''!!!'') and Amitie. Additionally, Arle has more alternate versions in ''Puyo Puyo Quest'' than any other character[[note]]Though Ringo comes close, if Dark Arle and Doppelganger Arle are disregarded[[/note]] and appears to be the primary protagonist of ''Puyo Puyo Chronicles'', suggesting that she is slowly but surely regaining the spotlight from her Sega-developed peers.

** ''Nekomimi Schezo'' of all people is this. Stick cat ears on Schezo, and you have a Dark Wizard who actively denies how much he enjoys wearing them, and has his power boosted ''the more he feels embarrassed.'' He even has a perpetual blush at his highest card rank!

** ''Rulue no Roux'', as NintendoHard as it is, actually has a difficulty curve. That's more than can be said for ''Arle no Roux'', which skips most of the basic puzzles typically seen at the start of ''Nazo Puyo'' games and instead opens with challenges like ''testing your ability to navigate a block maze''.



** Early on, ''Puyo Puyo!! Touch'' was unfavorably compared to ''Puyo Puyo!! Quest''. A good chunk of the FakeDifficulty has been taken notice by the devs, and were given rebalancing updates to smooth out the difficulty curve and downplay the trope.

Ultimately, the game was unable to carve out its own niche and shut down roughly a year after it was launched.
