* AwesomeMusic: Dive Bar, JEO Main Stage, and New Angle Dojo. And especially Downworld. It's a shame the music is pretty quiet during matches.
* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: The fighting game community loves Divekick, largely for the down-to-the-essentials feel of it.
* PeripheryDemographic: It was designed as a parody of competitive fighting games. That said, it's also popular among competitive fighting game players due to being what a fighting game is meant to be (TabletopGame/{{chess}} with reflexes) without the need to learn enormous combos to even be decent.
* [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong Suspiciously Similar Stage]]: Adding further to shout-out parallels between Kick and ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' is an entire stage filled with them. It's a basketball court, and the music that plays is [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong an almost-but-not-quite a version of the show's famed intro song.]]
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: As of late, there has been a growing Hatedom for the game, saying that it has become a joke that now takes itself too seriously. People have also said that this game would have been better if it were just Dive and Kick.
** One of the loading screen tips lampshades this fact.
-->''"I liked this game better when Dive and Kick were the only two characters."''
** The drastic changes made to The Baz and S-Kill in ''Addition Edition'' were...controversial to say the least.
