Trivia: Punch-Out!!
  • Fan Nickname: Von Kaiser's One-Hit KO attack in "Title Defense" mode has been given the name The Von Kaiser Wave by many Punch-Out and Fatal Fury (And consequently, KOF) fans.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Bear Hugger is voiced by Richard Newman (who coincidentally lives in Bear Hugger's home province of British Columbia), who is well known for playing Rhinox, another big guy. Not only that, he voiced a certain M.Bison who said "yes".
  • In the NES version, a camera held by an audience member at the top-right corner of the screen will flash when Bald Bull's bull charge can be countered.
  • Little Mac (or someone that looked like him) was going to be the player character in the SNES Super Punch-Out!! before being replaced by the blond boxer for unknown reasons. Nintendo has flip-flopped over whether this character is Mac with a makeover or an entirely new boxer for several years.
  • No Export for You: Inverted. Japan didn't get a release of Super Punch Out for SNES, except for a very limited edition in March 1998.
  • Talking to Himself: Great Tiger in Title Defense mode makes several illusions of himself between rounds. They hang out on the ropes talking like they're on break.
    • In a more straight example, Doc Louis and Mr. Sandman are both voiced by the same guy.
      • These two characters are also the only ones that refer to Little Mac as "Mac baby".
  • In an interesting coincidence, the initial barrage of punches Mike Tyson hammers you for in the NES version lasts 91 seconds, the amount of time it took Tyson to knock out contender Michael Spinks in 1988.
  • The only boxers to appear in all three console versions of the game are Bald Bull, Super Macho Man, and Mr. Sandman. Due to Arcade Super Punch-Out being a Mission Pack Sequel, no boxer has appeared in all games.
  • What Could Have Been: The Guest Fighter for the Wii game was originally gonna be Princess Peach, but was dropped because of the possible Unfortunate Implications. See here.
    • Mac in Super Punch Out is blonde and tan for unknown reasons but beta footage shows him looking far different.
