* %%* WholesomeCrossdresser: Nell


Being an old [=MMO=] launched in 2004, most of the servers closed down already in the new 10's. The Brazilian server was the first one to close, early in 2007 because the game company who brought the rights to run it in the country was struggling with the costs of running it. In 2016 the major servers were closed, starting with the original Korean one in August. In the same month the [=SEA=] (or Pangya South East Asia) servers closed. In December 16th, 2016, Pangya's global version closed its doors. In 2017, the Japanese server which had a lot of exclusive content (including a new course) ended too. Starting 2018, the Thailand server is the only official server alive. But, now, a team of die-hard fans have brought the game back with an unofficial private server known as [[http://pangyacelebrity.wixsite.com/play/game-info Pangya: Celebrity]].

* TheCameo: The gallery mode for ''Super Swing Golf'' has a picture of [[VideoGame/FatalFrameII Mio and Mayu Amakura.]]



* CharacterCustomization: [[VirtualPaperDoll Tons of outfits and accessories]] exist for every character, as well as alternate hairstyles and hair dyes. You can play twenty different players using Kooh in a row [[TasteTheRainbow and never see two identical Koohs]].
** Although the closest you can get to customize the actual character ''is'' the one alternative hairstyle and a few hair dyes. It's (usually quite obviously) the same character underneath.
*** Actually, there are several alternate hairstyles available for a number of the characters, and this isn't even including the [[SoulBrotha Afro Wigs]]. This, combined with an excess of accessories, and [[OnlySixFaces certain design similarities]] among some characters, frequently gives you pause as to just '''WHO''' your opponent is using.

** Uncle Bob has a lot of spin, which is very useful for chip-in opportunities. In other hand, he has the lowest control stat. Meaning he is the hardest character to hit do perfect shots. And missing a Pangya in this game could result in a disaster.

* DecoyProtagonist: [[spoiler:Scout in the PSP storyline may seem like this the moment the player realizes that the plot focuses and revolves around Kaz, beginning and ending with him.]]
* DifficultButAwesome: Many shortcuts require shots that use special shots or precisely-aimed shots coupled with a Pangya and have harsh penalties for missing the shot. An example is hole 15 of Blue Lagoon and Blue Water; you can take the long way around but most likely get a par, take a shortcut onto an inner island to easily secure an eagle, or take a daring shot (most likely requiring a Tomahawk) over the water directly to the green, nailing an albatross or even a hole-in-one if you succeed and suffering an O.B. if you fail.

** Nell is the only character that uses no gender pronouns in his bio on the main page. However his story page contains the female pronouns she and her and calls him a girl. This also agrees with his birthday event where the female pronoun 'her' birthday was used. However a girl in 'her' story comment there's something not right about her and Cadie refers to him as 'the kid' and when Nuri calls Nell a girl she laughs and says 'you need to see beyond the surface of things'.

* ShortcutsMakeLongDelays: Many holes have shortcuts that can shave off one or two strokes, but require very careful shots and often a sufficiently long drive. Missing Pangya by so much as one pixel on these shortcuts will often result in an O.B. and ensure that you get par at best as punishment.

Added DiffLines:

* CripplingOverspecialization:
** Max has a lot of power and good control stats but has low spin and curve. While having a lot of power is nice, especially in long courses like Deep Inferno, you suffer a penalty in control and accuracy stats if you power stat is higher than 20.
** Uncle Bob has a lot of spin, which is very useful for chip-in opportunities. In other hand, he has the lowest control stat. Meaning he is the hardest character to hit do perfect shots. And missing a Pangya in this game could result in a disaster.
** Cecilia has a lot of curve and her other stats are average. While this is good for Silvia Cannon, this stat is the most useless one by a huge margin, considering curve shots are only useful in a very few holes.

The game played in honor of that struggle and victory is called Pangya, and players are invited from Earth as well, since that's where the hero came from.

Tecmo published a port of the game for the Nintendo Wii, which was titled ''Super Swing Golf'' for American release, and removed the "Massively Multiplayer" part from the game, making it a standalone game that anyone can play alone or in local multiplayer. Story modes are introduced and each character model got their own personalities. A sequel followed along similar lines. A PSP version also exists, published by Tomy as ''Pangya: Fantasy Golf''. This version expands massively on the storyline, personalities and playable cast, making a number of the MMO/Wii caddies playable as golfers and adding a few original characters on top of that - at the cost of the newest MMO character and about a third of the courses.
