* AnnoyingVideoGameHelper: Every time you get a game over, and sometimes at other points in the game, Lubba will suggest that you take a break. This was probably meant to be an AntiFrustrationFeature, but it's more annoying than anything else.

* AwardSnub: Lost many, many GOTY awards to ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. Despite the same people giving those awards giving [=SMG2=] 10/10s, probably due to the first ''Galaxy'' racking up nearly unanimous [=GOTY=]s three years before, while the original ''Mass Effect'' was largely ignored in GOTY awards (also in 2007) despite being one of that year's best-rated games. Much like at the Oscars, critics simply decided it was Mass Effect's "turn".

** The Daredevil Run on [[spoiler:Grandmaster Galaxy]] can be [[PlatformHell hard]], since you have to complete several challenges with [[OneHitPointWonder only 1 hit point]] and ''no'' checkpoints. Heck, the Hammer Bros section ''alone'' is tough to do without dying.
** [[spoiler:Grandmaster Galaxy]] is something of a That One Level by itself. The Daredevil Run merely makes things ''worse''.

** Fiery Dino Piranha. Dear GOD. Just as difficult as in the first ''Galaxy'', and because he's the last boss in the TimedMission BossRush level, by the time you get to him you may have only thirty seconds or so to work with, largely due to luck-based factors in the earlier fights. Bouldergeist also counts, being the second to last boss and having the most luck involved, meaning you need to do pretty much perfectly on Dino Piranha, King Kaliente, and Major Burrows so you have as much time as possible for Bouldergeist and Fiery Dino Piranha.

Added DiffLines:

** The Speed Run on Boss Blitz Galaxy. Five minutes seems generous, but Bouldergeist is so luck based that he can singlehandedly waste most of your time. This means that you have to do near perfect on the first three bosses, get really lucky on Bouldergeist, and quickly finish Fiery Dino Piranha.

* ContestedSequel: While universally acclaimed, critics and fans are divided as to whether it's better than the original or not. The game did briefly manage to outrank ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' on [=GameRankings=], but eventually fell down below ''Ocarina'' into third place, unlike its predecessor.

** The Gearmos, who are once again running the trash cleaning missions and appearing at the end of some Purple Coin challenges to yell at you every time you fail. Even Lubba has [[FantasticRacism something against them]].

* GameBreaker: Spinning and ground-pounding gives you a ''homing ground pound''. Fair enough, but then you learn that ''it works on Stars too''. [[spoiler:[[{{PlatformHell}} All those difficult suicide-jump]] Green star missions? Denied!]] Well, sort of. The range is still limited, so you'll still have to be in the right area.

* MagnumOpus: As ''Galaxy'' is the best-reviewed ''Mario'' game of all time and ''Galaxy 2'' has reviews ''very nearly'' on par with its predecessor, the EvenBetterSequel crowd inevitably views ''Galaxy 2'' as the highest point in the series.
