YMMV: Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan
  • Crazy Awesome: Just try and say it's not.
    • And to those who disagree: Can your cheerleaders motivate the people enough to revive themselves from what is possibly death, and then work up the strength to team up with the rival squad in order to focus the cheering energy of the world to a dying sun? And it works so well that the dead tree you cheered next to suddenly blossoms? I think not.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Its success with non-Japanese players is why Elite Beat Agents came about, followed by OTO 2 roughly a year later.
  • Good Bad Bugs (Lag Mode and Spin Mode, both of which require you to abuse the Anti-Frustration Features on Easy mode.
  • Moe: Aoi. She has glasses, a flat chest, unique hair, and she's a total ditz. No wonder why she's a fan-favourite!
  • Never Live It Down: Kaoru is seen with a bear only once in the entire second game, yet it's nearly synonymous with him in fan works.
  • Scrappy Mechanic:
    • Spinners can be quite straining on the player's hand. Easier dificulties at least put spinners at the end of segments, giving you a bit of cooldown time, but harder difficulties often make you go directly back into notes immediately after the spin.
    • The scoring system, which adds a multiplier that is proportional to your current combo. This has the side effect of combo breaks in the middle of a song being much more damaging than a combo break at the begining or the end.
    • The lifebar drains constantly. Very few other rhythm games can fail the player in the middle of a combo. This also means that if there is a lull in notes and your lifebar is in the "!!" section, you're dead.
  • Tear Jerker: "Over the Distance" in OTO 1, and "Believe" in OTO 2.
  • That One Level: The final songs in both games are enough to make you break your DS.
    • The last 14 notes in "Countdown" on Hard and Insane are near-impossible to get all 300s on, especially when the song is so fast-paced.
    • "Believe" from Ouendan 2 on Expert. The song is easily the slowest in the game, even slower than "Over the Distance" from the original. Unfortunately, your life gauge still drains extremely quickly. This means that to make up for the life loss between notes, you need to get practically every note perfect to make it through. Some funny timing doesn't help matters.
      • And to hammer just how hard it is to keep your life meter up, it's entirely possible to fail all the cutscenes with an S rank.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Shinta Kikuchi
    • Possibly JIN 2, whose hairstyle is similar to Mana Shiratori's.
      • You could also count Kaoruko: blond lady in the choir level) to be a sort of reverse trap. It's even Lampshaded in the Let's Play.

Tropes exclusive to the Let's Play of the two games include:
