** Podley doesn't necessarily like Mario, given how little the two interact, never once in the game do you ''have'' to meet with Merlee and Merluvlee, the shopkeepers, Dazzle, the innkeeper, and the Trouble Center are also optional, and the sailors at the docks are probably represented by the Sapphire Star that traveled to Keelhaul Key.

** Also, I believe it's mentioned (or was it implied?) that the Underwhere is more of a waiting room, and there's hell below it. Mario & Luigi needed to be judged, Peach was fine, and Bowser... well, he was only locked in the Underwhere Road because the D-Men couldn't do a thing about him. I doubt they're sending him where Bonechill lived.
** If they sent him where Bonechill lived, he'd be a frozen lizard.
** The answer to this is the reason why there's a trope called VideoGameCrueltyPotential - Mario and Luigi may be heroes by name, but they are still known for doing less than heroic things both while under and outside the player's control, like stealing things from [=NPCs=], killing Whackas, and so forth. Whereas Princess Peach is a pure and innocent maiden within the series continuity who only uses force when the well-being of the greater good is at stake.

** Maybe they have their own Mailbox SP things or something, Mario can't be the only person in the world to use one. They probably come in different models/sizes (they'd have to to accommodate the wide variety of races in the Mario world).

** I see it as in the end, things were bought back the way they used to be before the marriage (except for the memories that are still there). Which means Peach and Bowser aren't married, Sammer's Kingdom is restored, and the crack is gone. And it's likely Bleck or even Dimentio looked for the Pure Hearts to stall the hero, but they couldn't find them, therefore Luvbi came back.

** Same goes for the final Star Spirit; its only known location is in the far north, but even Twink dosen't know where it is.

* Why do the Shadow Sirens waste so much time trying to stop mario from reaching Poshley Heights, with the whole bomb threat, instead of just warping into the sanctum and taking the Garnet Star while he's forced to take the train?

** No, it can definitely kill people. Two of Bowser's moves in the final battle involve using the rod to summon lightning and a wave of energy - I've never seen them do it, but I'd imagine those would still kill you if your health is low enough.

* Why did Grambi decide to protect his Pure Heart, by turning it into a living thing? Did the Ancients not tell him that it would have to be taken and used by the heroes someday? Squirpina, the Cragnons, and even King Sammer knew about that, so why did Grambi decide to award sentience to the Pure Heart when he knew it would cause Luvbi a lot of emotional torment when she had to be changed back?

** Less meta, the map could have selected the star that was closest [i]at the time Mario first used it[/i]. In fact, judging by the last few stars, it could have just been selecting the closest one period. Consider the locations:
*** Petalburg could easily be only kilometres from Rogueport itself.
*** The Boggly Woods also could be relatively close.
*** Glitzville can only be reached by blimp, yes, but only because of its altitude: Kammy implies that it is a day trip.
*** Twilight Town could be farther away, considering how the time of day changes significantly between there and Rogueport.
*** Keelhaul Key is several days voyage by sail, though this may not be a direct route.
*** Poshley Heights is [i]at least[/i] two full days away from Rogueport by train, possibly as many as two and a half, depending on the times of departure and arrival and how long Mario took to lower the bridge at the abandoned station: Even at 20 km/hr, that is at least 960 km.
*** Finally, the moon is, you know, [[ShapedLikeItself the moon]], and is almost certainly farther from any location on its planet than any other location on the planet.

** As mentioned in the section about the Transport Chest, Peach's only concern isn't to save herself; she also wants to make sure the other prisoners get out safely, too. Even if she could survive the fall, it wouldn't be a good option, because she'd have left behind the prisoners; on top of that, Peach was feeding Mario information about the Star Spirits' locations through Twink. Peach being in the castle to gather information was actually more helpful to her cause than actually escaping would've been.

** Maybe they just like the original designs more? Sure, the new ones look closer to the main series, but ''Paper Mario'' isn't the main series. It's a spinoff series of games with different characters and enemies and a different art style...It doesn't bug me as much as it does some others, but I don't see any reason why they would change the designs. (Also, it might just be weird for some people because the new designs are modeled after 3D forms of each enemy and are textured in much more detail, which kind of clashes with the rest of the ''Paper Mario'' universe's simple, cartoony, paper-look.

*** Actually, it (somehow) takes place during the transition from the Stage to the next cutscene. Here's proof (Pay attention to Mario's clothes.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtWjyK1h_HQ
