YMMV: Wii Fit
  • 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 with Badass Normal tendencies.
  • Funny Moments: If you miss the last punch in Rhythm Kung Fu completely, a random pot drops on your Mii's head.
  • 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: Measuring!... Measuring!....
  • 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.
  • The Scrappy: The game has become hated among obsessive hardcore gamers. In fact, it and other "casual" games are also responsible for making some of those people hate the Wii console itself.
    • Even among the game's fans, there are people who dislike the trainers, both for their Stop Helping Me! moments and for the Uncanny Valley effect they exude (see below).
    • 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.
  • Stop Helping Me!: When the Yoga/Strength trainers repeat themselves over and over. 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.
