** The ''Puyo Puyo 7'' characters, Ringo, Maguro, Risukuma, and Ecolo. People either find them amusing characters that meshes well with the other fan favorites, or a case of them being useless or annoying that debuted in a game that suffered badly from {{Sequelitis}}. Not helping is that these characters started having shades of {{Creators Pet}} and {{The Artifact}}, the former more so with Ringo due to her having more exposure then the other Puyo Puyo 7 characters and arguably more then Amitie and Arle.

** Zigzagged with ''Puyo Puyo Quest'' itself. It was initially met with a lot of skepticism, but has since become the most popular topic of conversation in the English fandom. 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.

* EpilepticTrees: The lack of ''any'' WordOfGod regarding the English arcade game has led to several theories regarding its release and legitimacy. The original CommonKnowledge was that it was a bootleg, however similarities between the arcade game and ''Puzlow Kids'' (plus information regarding the English version's MAME release) have dealt a blow to that theory. Other theories are that it was given a limited release and flopped, that [[OldShame Sega wasn't happy with the quality of the translation and buried it]], and that ''it's actually a fan translation.''

** Fever deadlocks are an arguably downplayed version. Fever mode mostly consists of watching giant preset chains pop, the only diversion being to add an extra chain or two onto the normal preset chains.



** When people talk about the "first" Puyo Puyo game, they are almost always referring to the arcade game instead of its MSX/FDS predecessor.

** When people talk about the "first" Puyo Puyo game, they are almost always referring to the arcade game instead of its MSX/FDS predecessor. In fact, several outlets (''including the official 25th Anniversary Book'') treat the 8-bit games and the arcade game as a single entity.

* GameBreaker: "Yo~n" rule in ''Box''. It has everything that "Puyo Puyo" and "Tsu" has plus super attacks.
** Speaking of ''Yon'', Arle's and [[spoiler:Doppelganger Arle's]] super attacks (in the console versions) block your Nuisance Puyo from falling for 15 and '''30''' seconds, respectively. Kikimora's attack completely gets rid of her Nuisance Puyo.
** Arle's barrier might actually be ''more'' broken in ''Pocket Puyo Puyo~n''. The time is much shorter, but it actually "clears" Nuisance Puyo instead of holding them off. In addition, Skeleton T's and Panotty's powers lock rotation and manual drop respectively, and Dragon can turn all of the opponent's Nuisance Puyo into Hard Puyo.
** ''Box'''s super attacks include Kikimora's console attack, Dragon's GBC attack, nerfed versions of Arle's and [[spoiler:Doppelganger Arle's]] barriers, and a new power that erases everything above the player's fourth-from-bottom row.
** To be fair, Compile did attempt to balance each super attack with unique starting levels and charge rates. [[FakeBalance Too bad that some are so ineffective that they would barely be worth it for free]].

* GameBreaker: "Yo~n" GameBreaker:
** ''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 ''Box''. It general also counts in ''Box''; because Yo~n rule has everything every mechanic that "Puyo Puyo" and "Tsu" has plus super attacks.
** Speaking
Tsu rule has, there is essentially no reason to use Tsu (or its predecessor) over Yo~n outside of ''Yon'', RuleOfFun.

** Suketoudara. People either find him an amusing {{Comic Relief}} character, or an [[TheScrappy annoying and useless]] character. The fact he gets an oddly large amount of exposure in promotions and appearances in games also gives him some {{Creators Pet}} vibes.
