** One of VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite's genre-deconstructing tropes was in the ending, where [[spoiler: a villain is the final boss by way of usurping the champion]]. Robopon did that years earlier, in the first game.
** In VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire, a new feature was the ability to dive underwater. You used this to track down the villains. In the first Robopon, you can dive underwater as well--there's no bad guys there, but there's a health spa!

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Robopon 2 pokes fun at a lot of moral lessons, but Miho's speech about love is one the game takes seriously--for good reason.
* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Robopon 2 did a much better job of breaking away from the Pokemon mold by making battles four on four, and introducing the love/hate oil system, in which Robopon of a specific oil type (either A, B, AB, O, or ?) "liked" Robopon of certain oil types and "hated" Robopon of other types. Using this system in tandem with any software on hand made it possible to teach almost any Robopon skills that could target every enemy on the field, or every one of your allies, and is an integral part of the MetaGame.

* TheWoobie: Prince Tail, in the first game. First Dr. Zero kidnaps Princess Darcy and tells Tail that his family won the throne by cheating. Then Tail loses to Dr. Zero, losing his Legend1 title to the evil scientist. After training at Cherry Hill to win her back, Tail loses to Cody, losing the title of Legend2 to him. Then Zero traps Princess Darcy in a mirror [[KickTheDog because Tail lost to him and you]]. Cue HeroicBSOD. To top it off, even after you beat the game, you don't ''have'' to save Darcy, and if you're playing on a ROM saving her becomes ''impossible''.

** The first ''VideoGame/{{Robopon}}'' games were ''Sun, Moon, and Star'' versions. In 2016, ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' were announced. Robopon fans are quite amused at this.

** The Rust status effect causes major damage at the start of a turn and stops you from attacking. This was Nerfed in ''2'' to only cause damage and at the end of a turn.

** In the sequel, Nick D. tries to guilt trip Cody into giving him the X-Stones, because he needs them to provide money for the orphan kids at Chapel Academy. You defeat him every time. Cody (accidentally?) floods an entire kingdom with a fishing rod, is sentenced to death by hanging, and escapes without punishment thanks to a time machine. Dr. Don and Sam continually berate Cody for wrecking their time machines. Eventually, it drives Don insane. Then Cody arrives on the bad guys' Battleship 20 years in the past. He does not prevent it from blowing up an entire town, but does blow it up with the villains inside, nearly killing Zeke and causing Zeke's father to berate him. At the end, it's revealed that Cody defeating the villains at the end of the game caused their actions in both games thanks to time travel.
