** Subverted when it comes to the round "Goombas" that appeared in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld''. They aren't Goombas, but a related species that just happened to share the same name as their mushroom-shaped counterparts. When they reappeared within ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' alongside their standard-shaped counterparts, their names were retconned into "Galoombas" in an attempt to avoid confusion. To make it clear about this being a retcon, not only does a tip within ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrothers'' outright state they're Galoombas and not Goombas, 5he voice that sings the name of the stage elements within ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' calls them "Galoombas" outright if the style is set to ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' (due to them being replacing the Goombas from the other three in-game styles).

Added DiffLines:
* AttackOfTheTownFestival: A not uncommon occurance in the franchise, whether the festival is about [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy stars]], [[VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar stickers]], or, heck, maybe her highness [[VideoGame/PaperMario just wanted to throw a party]].

** The sentience of Bob-ombs, as well as their ability to regenerate from explosives. ** Throughout the series, Bowser is presented as either [[BigBad straight up evil]], LaughablyEvil, a FriendlyEnemy, the ButtMonkey or simply a JerkAss. The "[[BigBad evil]]" Bowser is almost always when he's the main villain, the other categories is when a new (Usually one-game exclusive) villain appears, in which Bowser is drastically toned-down.

* OfficialCouple: In the early days of the franchise, Mario had a perchant for getting romantically involved with any and all of his damsels in distress, but this has since been abandoned. Nintendo has refused to outright declare Mario and Peach a couple, but nonetheless produces dozens of hints, statements, and status enhancements over the course of its many games.

* OfficialCouple: With the perchant tendency of stating that Mario is romantically involved or infatuated with any new Princess he meets in a given game being discarded over the years, Peach and Mario is the choice that still stands and seems to have become the only. Hints, statements, and status enhancements over the course of many games reinforce this:

* MythologyGag: The classic Super Mushroom design, red with white spots, actually goes back only to ''Super Mario World''. This evolved from what was originally a mushroom whose cap was yellow with red spots. The [[VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros Mega]] [[VideoGame/MarioKartWii Mushroom]] is a throwback to this original design, as is the easy-to-miss [[SecretAIMoves Poison Mushroom]] from ''Super Mario Kart''.

** The Mario Brothers, however, are a unique case. While their species is explicit (''homo nintendonus''), their exact relation to baseline humans and whether or not they'd be classified as human is ambiguous.

** The Mario Brothers, however, are a unique case. While their species is explicit (''homo nintendonus''), their exact relation to baseline humans and whether or not they'd be classified as human is ambiguous. It doesn't help that their history has been flipflopped between being native to Brooklyn and being born in the world of the Mushroom Kingdom. ** Wario and Waluigi are also notable for having distinctively inhuman traits, like their cartoonishly big PointyEars. Are they some species of Mushroom Elf? ** Another mention for Peach, who is the only humanoid in an entire kingdom of mushroom people.

** [[VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld Captain]] [[VideoGame/CaptainToadsTreasureTracker Toad]] was recently declared to be a character distinct from the primary Toad who appears in most spinoffs, but his character evolved from the red Toad of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', who was practically indistinguishable from the original Toad and even identified with him by various sources at the time.

* DecompositeCharacter: In order to increase the player roster for sports spin-offs and other multi-player ''Mario'' games, a good number of alternate forms of Mario and some other characters have been made into separate characters with little explanation to why they're there alongside their normal selves. Some examples include the [[SpinOffBabies baby versions]], Metal Mario, Dr.Mario, Tanooki Mario, Gold Mario, Cat Mario, Pink Gold Peach, Cat Peach, and Dry Bowser.
