** Also in ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'', the localizers had quite the task with handling Schezo's botched phrasing. For example, in the very first encounter with him, he utters his catchphrase to Arle as per RunningGag. While it is humorous to a Japanese player, it's not so funny to a Western player. The localized version gave us ''this'' wonderful blunder.

While it is humorous to a Japanese player, it's not so funny it doesn't exactly translate well to a Western player. The localized version gave us ''this'' wonderful blunder.

** Downplaying the presence of ''Puyo Puyo'' in ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' will be met with exasperation, though in this case the fandom saw it coming a mile away. Also, don't claim that Puyo is overpowered against Tetris. (See the FakeBalance entry on the main page for more on that.)



*** Noting the aforementioned guitar playing Zombie, [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Capcom would create their own]], during the same year as Tsu.

** Mostly [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] towards Suketoudara, as most non-japanese fans simply don't get what makes him so popular in Japan that has been in more games than relevant {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s such as Draco and Witch.

Given that many newer fans (introduced through ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'') seem to like him, it could be argued that the trope has been completely averted outside of the hardcore ''Puyo'' circle.



** Bringing ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' to the West unaltered can be seen as this in light of the ''[[DolledUpInstallment Cranky Food Friends]]'' debacle two years earlier.

Also, it's only the second game (after ''Minna'') to have a generally well-regarded localization, coming right after Sega essentially copy-pasted fan wiki information into ''3D Puyo 2's'' manual.

** Puyo Puyo fans tend to be fans of other {{Falling Blocks}} games. This includes games that have a similar focus on competitive play and a cast of colorful characters like ''VideoGame/PanelDePon'' and ''VideoGame/MagicalDrop''. But the biggest example is with ''{{Tetris}}'', due to both franchises being [[VideoGameLongRunners long running]] and [[TropeCodifier very influential]], creating a {{Friendly Rivalry}} as a result. The fact ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' happened helps solidify this.

There are some western Tetris fans who are very unhappy about Puyo Puyo invading a Tetris game, [[UnknownRival but fortunately, the resentment is not reciprocated]].

* AccidentalInnuendo: Many of Schezo's lines in ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' are pretty......[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z53ImZFol-4 interesting]].

** ''BOX'' can be seen as an attempt to WinBackTheCrowd after producing the controversial ''Yon'' and questionable spin-offs. Not only does it contain arcade perfect ports of of the first two arcade games, but it also contains a surprisingly extensive Quest Mode and a special Rally Mode where you can potentially face any opponent with any rule between the first arcade game and ''Yon''. Though it was in vein since it would be the last game Puyo Puyo game involving Compile, and also one of the last games Compile produced in general.

**Another notable change with the dialogue in ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' is how sounds are handled. Instead of simply writing out stuff like "Ahhh" or "Hahaha", the dialogue describes the sounds in a literal fashion, causing [[http://i.imgur.com/JhSQaib.png some]] [[https://i.imgur.com/TRSfpIc.png rather]] [[https://i.imgur.com/FzTHGZB.png hilarious]] [[https://i.imgur.com/vIC1SeP.png descriptions]].

** The Puyo AI in ''Puyo Puyo Tetris'' (outside of [[PerfectPlayAI Core AI mode]]) is a notable downgrade from ''20th'''s AI, likely due to the fact that a Tetris player can easily hamper the long Puyo chains that 20th's higher-leveled AI can perform.
