* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: Sukapon is "remade back into his original funny self", whereupon "He made people laugh and became the best comedian in the world!"
* WholePlotReference: The plot is very similar to that of ''VideoGame/MegaMan1''. Though unlike that game, the robots you face in Stage 1 (which consist of the heroic robots gone bad) are reprogrammed back onto your side after defeating them instead of being flat-out destroyed in Mega Man's case.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: More than 32 "regular" robots and 4 bosses who could be played as if you were good enough to beat special mode. [[GeniusProgramming On the Famicom.]] This was the largest roster in any fighting game until ''Videogame/TheKingOfFighters 98''.

''Joy Mech Fight'' is a FightingGame that Nintendo developed for the [[Videogame/{{NES}} Famicom]], with {{No Export|ForYou}} from Japan, in 1993. It pushes the limitations of the 8-bit console by making all the characters have [[FloatingLimbs their body parts float separately]], which makes for smooth animations while not spending much of the memory capacity. Surprisingly for a Famicom FightingGame, the controls work well and there are even tutorials on each character's moveset.

The plot of the game tells of Dr. Little Emon, who created robots with the help of his best friend, Dr. Ivan Walnut. One day Dr. Emon finds the laboratory destroyed and the seven robots that were being worked on are nowhere to be seen. Turns out Dr. Walnut is behind it all, intent on conquering the world. Betrayed, Dr. Emon calls his eighth robot, the comedian Sukapon, to be reprogrammed into a battle robot to put an end to Dr. Warner's plans.

* ShesAManInJapan: Meta example; Sukapon being a robot along with Japanese language eschewing pronouns means Sukapon has no confirmed gender. While there's exceptions on both sides, Japanese fans tend to see Sukapon as feminine whereas western fans mostly see Sukapon as a "he" as shown by the FanTranslation.
