* ArtistDisillusionment: Due to building ValuesDissonance between young American gamers (who like action-packed, violent, and cinematic games) and Nintendo (who prefer simple games that are fun for the whole family) which ended up hurting sales of the NintendoGameCube, [[http://www.notenoughshaders.com/2013/08/15/the-struggles-of-marketing-the-gamecube/ Nintendo began to feel contempt for Western gamers]] toward the end of the [=GameCube=] era.
* ExecutiveMeddling: Nintendo has had a up and down history with executive meddling. Originally Nintendo did this in the early days of the NES/Famicom to avoid having poor quality games flood its first home console (Nintendo had to later drop this for legal reasons) and to make sure their own 1st and 2nd party games remain high in quality even if it meant 1st/2nd party software droughts at times (which Nintendo still does to this day). Unfortunately Nintendo has been hit hard by executive meddling by many 3rd parties, leading to many 3rd party games either being [[DummiedOut gimped]] / [[PortingDisaster badly ported]], [[{{Shovelware}} in poor quality]], or [[ScrewedByTheNetwork not coming out]] on Nintendo's systems even when Nintendo makes a high-quality and capable system.
* FanNickname: Brazilians often refer to Nintendo as the Big N, probably thanks to their ''Nintendo World'' magazine.
** "Ninty" is also commonly used.
* FandomNod: Nintendo's digital event for E3 2014 contained a lot of references to their fanbase, mostly in the ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' sketches:
** One StrawFan in the audience complains about the abundance of Mario games, and the lack of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/StarFox'', the latter of which is actually getting a new game.
** The segment where Link complains about [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Toon Link]] being there is a reference to some fans having knee jerk reactions whenever Toon Link appears.
** And of course, Reggie's status as a MemeticBadass, when he sets the StrawFan on fire with a Fire Flower and obliterates him with EyeBeams.
* ViralMarketing: Nintendo's approach to marketing in hopes fans will be the ones to spread the word about the latest and upcoming products for Nintendo's systems. Unfortunately many see this as NetworkDecay since Nintendo no longer markets heavily to the mainstream unlike back in the NES and SNES eras. This lack of mainstream advertising often leads to the result of new [=IPs=] [[ScrewedByTheNetwork commercially failing]] even if they are [[AcclaimedFlop critically acclaimed]].
