* ExecutiveMeddling: A contributing factor to the gradual loss of features as the magazine went on.
* HeyItsThatGuy: A lot of the writers, especially in the pre-Future US days, came from, or moved on to writing jobs elsewhere in Nintendo of America.
* NamesTheSame: If you were to talk about "Nintendo Power" to someone living in Japan, they would think of a system at convenience stores where one would buy a blank Super Famicom cartridge, and have it "programmed" with the game of their choice.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The reason the magazine stopped being published was because {{Creator/Nintendo}} lost interest in getting it published in any form. Sad, especially since it had decent sales even in its dying days.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: As stated on the main page, they were originally going to call themselves ''Power Play'', but went with their current name once they found out the name was already taken.
** Future US had hoped to keep the magazine from dying completely by making it transition to a digital format. Sadly, Nintendo didn't let them.
