YMMV / Panel de Pon

  • Awesome Music: The final boss theme in the SNES version, The Place Where Evil Sleeps. It was still present in Tetris Attack, though Demoted to Extra as Bowser's appearance theme.
    • The Stage Clear Credits is quite a beautiful tune tune. It is just called "Special Ending 4", but it is quite heartwarming as well. It also has the background set randomly.
    • The ending of the Game Boy version of Tetris Attack. A most emotional/heartwarming chiptunes, especially everything after 2:00. The more calm, beautiful example of this is the SNES Version: whether it's a young fairy girl or a cute dino dragon running on a rainbow, it really sets up your mood. Especially after the clearing the hard mode.
  • Broken Base: Planet Puzzle League for the DS allows you to use the stylus instead of traditional controls. You can guess how this turned out with fans, especially purists.
  • Funny Moments: Yoshi losing his patience after you beat the Easy level.
  • Good Bad Bugs: In Pokémon Puzzle League, Giovanni's voice clips overlap each other, resulting in pretty funny voice clips if he pulls off several moves at once.
  • It's Easy, so It Sucks: Planet Puzzle League is accused of this due to its slower falling physics and ability to use the touch screen.
  • Market-Based Title: Oh boy. It's consistently been called Panel De Pon in Japan, but it's gone under the Tetris Attack name in Western territories and later Puzzle League. More specifically:
    • Panel De Pon = Tetris Attack
    • Pokémon De Panepon = Pokémon Puzzle Challenge
    • Panel De Pon DS = Planet Puzzle League (NA) = Puzzle League DS (PAL)
  • Most Annoying Sound: Anyone's chain or combo quote in Pokémon Puzzle League can be this. Especially Persian's yowl.
    • Battling Will in Pokemon Puzzle Challenge ... his Pokemon of choice is Jynx ... be prepared to hear her cry over and over again until you manage to defeat him.
  • Narm: While most of the characters in Pokémon Puzzle League were true to their anime personalities, Mewtwo was pretty ridiculous how he was voiced. He sounded annoyed when he was "going to winnnnnnn".
  • That One Boss: Butch and Cassidy in the Spa Service mode. Their level scrolls at 45, they have the rare diamond blocks to throw off basic combos and chains, and they have a very large health meter. They're even harder than Giovanni, the final boss, as while his stage features are mostly the same, his is in a 3D scrolling area that makes it easier to rack up combos and stop the scrolling. Butch and Cassidy's isn't. To make matters worse, you only get one shot to beat them; the only way to fight them more than once is to quit in the middle of the level or restart the mode.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Many fans' reaction to the fairies nearly disappearing from the series. Planet Puzzle League is a sore point particularly among Japanese fans as it has no characters whatsoever, leading to accusations of the game being soulless.
