* OffModel: Mostly [[AvertedTrope averted]]! Perhaps the most glaring exception are Bowser's eyes being blue instead of [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]], but this was entirely forgivable at the time -- Bowser's eyes were blue in official artwork up to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'', but had only changed to become red since ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld''. Bowser in this comic used a slightly outdated blue-eyed model. The change to red eyes was still a new one, and Nintendo itself didn't seem absolutely certain about sticking with it for the next few years -- for example, later games like ''VideoGame/Yoshi'sSafari'' still had him with blue eyes. Red eyes didn't become his decided iconic look until ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''.

* FakeOutFadeOut: After saving Peach and escaping Wendy's castle (or what's left of it, anyway), Mario and his friends walk off into the sunset as a nice big '''THE END''' sign is shown. On the very next page, Mario cuts in and shouts that the adventure isn't over yet as they still need to get back home.

* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: In the ''Mario vs. Wario'' featurette, it's revealed that Wario's hate for Mario stems from all the comical abuse he (albeit unintentionally) put Wario through when they were kids. Highlights include gardening (Mario pulled all the turnips and left the Piranha Plants to nip Wario), flattening coins (Wario gets flattened by a Thwomp instead of his coin) and playing cowboys (Mario was always the sheriff who picked on rustler Wario, save for only ''one'' time when Wario became sheriff and Mario made fun of him).

* CaptainOblivious: Mario in the ''Mario Vs Wario'' comic seems completely unable to comprehend that the monsters that Wario have sent after him and even Wario himself are trying to destroy him. It goes deeper, too: Mario's obliviousness led to Wario suffering a lot of physical and mental abuse when they were kids.

When the comic originally ran, it ran alongside another {{Animesque}} serial based on ''Comicbook/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast''. Both serials were later reprinted in GraphicNovel format to celebrate the magazine's fiftieth issue. The ''Super Mario Adventures'' trade paperback was also bundled with the first ''Mario Vs Wario'' comic that ''Nintendo Power'' had published back in 1993, which told the tale of Wario's backstory in a loose adaptation of ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins]]''. A second ''Mario Vs. Wario'' comic was run in a later issue of ''Nintendo Power'', but was not included in the graphic novel.

* ColbertBump: In November 2013, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic did a review of the comics, praising them and giving them new attention.

* HeAlsoDid: Leslie Swan was a senior editor for ''Magazine/NintendoPower'' and did a great deal of the writing for this comic. Aside from her current career in Nintendo game localization, she went on to voice Peach herself in ''VideoGame/SuperMario64''.
