The whole dreamcast controller would be worth mentioning except that the VMU port did allow some genuinely innovative things... but damn that thing is hard on the hands and not well designed.
Oh I gotta disagree with you on this one. While the choice of having the Dreamcast cable come out the front is odd to say the least, I never found that it adversely affected it's use. And aside from that, I think it's otherwise a very good, easy to use, and never caused me any hand discomfort.
I play almost exclusively fighting games on my Dreamcast, the main one being MvC2. I can only play that for about 45 to an hour before my hands are really hurting. On the other hand, I can play Dragonball FighterZ on my Switch for the entire length of a 2 hour film without discomfort. The D pad specifically is really, really rough.
