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.
    • 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.
  • 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:
    • 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).
  • 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.
