* FranchiseKiller: ''Seven Sorrows'', which was released as an ObviousBeta with all of the touted new features conspicuously missing, as well most series staples from previous games, such as Bomb Potions and ''all'' power-ups.
** WhatCouldHaveBeen: The game had a very prestigious team at first, with the likes of John Romero and Josh Sawyer attached to it, and was aimed as an extremely ambitious franchise resurrection. Sadly, the original devs left and the project collapsed into abject mediocrity.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The voice of Sumner in ''Legends'' and ''Dark Legacy'' is Doug Lawrence, the voice of many {{Nickelodeon}} characters, such as [[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Filburt the Turtle]] and [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Plankton]].
