* AccidentalInnuendo: An unusual aversion; the game is ''supposed'' to say the words "Hello, I'm turned on" when powered up. Due to the limitations of the speech chip however, it ends up mostly sounding like the unintelligible gibberish spoken elsewhere in the game.
* EarWorm: ''Rebooted'' only has two themes and the "Stage Clear" theme will never leave your head.
* GoddamnedBats: Slick and Sam.
* PortingDisaster:
** While ''Rebooted'' was well-received on the mobile side, the console ports have notoriously unreliable controls, which can make it very easy to accidentally steer Q*bert off the side of the course.
** In a lesser example, the "Q*bert Classic" mode of ''Rebooted'' deletes all of Q*bert's speech samples from the original game, and also most of the game's music cues. It's been suggested that the former was an act of [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerization]], to remove any profane-sounding speech samples... which they still managed to mess up, by leaving Ugg's and Wrongway's speech samples in, at least one of which can sound quite sweary.
