Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Breather Boss: Kojiro. He is very predictable in comparison to the Crest Guardians. No wonder why Musashi barely notices him.
Guide Dang It: The Special series of action figures - especially Jon's, which requires that you hold off on opening exactly ONE treasure chest until after the game is beaten. Try to obtain the correct Gondola Gizmo on the first try using only the clues given in-game - though there's only two that match the requirements, and a degree of Trial-and-Error Gameplay is permitted.
The above is wrong, you merely have to get every chest to get the Jon & Leno figure. People use to think this was true because too many people missed a chest in the restaurant basement or the one on top of the mountain (and it didn't help that a plethora of rumors rose out about getting that figure and D Lumina 3). Once one person found a method that worked repeatedly, just about everyone clung to his method, despite the fact the truth was even simpler (and despite the fact that those that did miss those chests, still never got the figure).
The calendar puzzle on the first playthrough. The solution is on an item you got near the middle of the game and the puzzle is in the Very Definitely Final Dungeon. Before this, there is absolutely no purpose to the item so most players probably forget about it by this point.
Scrappy Mechanic: The platforming can be very annoying in the beginning to how simple it's Musashi's jump and the camera's position. After getting the double jump this can be easily avoided.
Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Hard to believe that this amount of voice acting in a video game was considered impressive.
