YMMV: Wii Fit

  • Broken Base: The whole "gaming as exercise" premise has split fitness fans and gamers down the middle. On the one hand, it has proven very helpful for many going through physiotherapy, residents of nursing homes, or those seeking something to kick-start their health. On the other hand, the general consensus is that it isn't useful for intense exercise, meaning that die-hard fitness buffs may not be so happy.
  • Crack Pairing: Ever since the reveal of the fourth Super Smash Bros. title, there's been a lot of shipping between the Wii Fit Trainer and Slender Man, due to both of them being near-featureless bleach-white humanoids. There's also those who pair her with the Villager as both of them are unexpected characters who have Badass Normal tendencies.
  • Even Better Sequel: Wii Fit Plus is generally agreed to be a better game than the original, since it improves on some previous Scrappy Mechanics and adds a better range of exercises.
  • Funny Moments:
    • If you miss the last punch in Rhythm Kung Fu completely, a random pot drops on your Mii's head.
    • Fail to jump over the logs in Obstacle Course in time, and the log will roll over your Mii, flattening him/her in cartoon fashion. The Mii then blinks a couple times.
    • The Snowball Fight game, which features you in a snowball fight against opponents that can basically dress up as snowmen. If you hit anyone, or get hit, there is a shot of the Mii landing flat on their backside.
  • Memetic Badass: Thanks to Super Smash Bros., the Wii Fit Trainer quickly got propelled to this status after she was revealed to be in the game.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "I blame Wii Fit."
    • The quote at the header, which three years later mutated into "My body wasn't ready." Acknowledged at E3 2012 by Reggie himself upon the unveiling of Wii Fit U. Yes, Reggie's body was ready.
  • Most Annoying Sound:
  • Most Wonderful Sound: The music that plays after you complete an exercise with a good rating. And, if you choose to do jogging and get more than 100% rating, you hear lots of very adorable cats mewing at you.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Lotus Focus. "KATSU!"
    • If you have a fear of heights, then the tightrope activity can be very frightening.
  • Periphery Demographic: The game has been embraced by physiotherapists.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Some hardcore gamers warmed up to the game and the trainers more after they were added to the fourth Super Smash Bros. game as seriously out-of-left-field character choices, complete with an amusing launch trailer (for the female version). It helps that the entire Wii Fit fad (and Wii fad in general) died down a long time ago, with both the original and Plus eventually being outsold by a couple of Mario games, and Wii Fit U failing to make a splash.
  • The Scrappy:
  • Scrappy Mechanic: BMI is already a scrappy unit of measurement in fitness due to not accounting for build or other factors. This is worsened by the Guilt-Based Gaming involved if your ideal weight happens to be in the red.
  • Stop Helping Me!: When the Yoga/Strength trainers repeat themselves over and over; hearing them once or twice might be acceptable, but not over and over again. Try to work toward exhaling through your nose. Let's do some deep breathing together. Inhale as the blue circle shrinks.
  • Uncanny Valley: Pale white skin, unmoving mouths, Stepford Smiles... those trainers can really creep out some people.
  • The Woobie: The balance board.
