** Another thing to keep in mind is that Peach wasn't actually in any danger if she didn't escape - Bowser makes clear that he's not interested in hurting her, and it isn't until the very end that he pays that much attention to her at all. Staying put inside the castle was more helpful to Mario's cause, probably a lot safer for Peach, and allowed her to keep watch over Bowser and her subjects. She had no reason to escape, so she didn't really bother trying.

*** Even if Bowser were to take her seriously enough as an opponent, I doubt he would ever be willing to fight her. Even if she tried, all he'd need to do would be to have his Koopatrols grab her and take her back to her room. And Peach doesn't have Spike Shield (or a hammer, for that matter), so she can't hold her own against them.

[[folder: New, More Accurate Designs = Bad?]]
* Why do some people have a problem with how the enemies look in Sticker Star? It's not like they're ugly now, they've just been updated to match their main series counterparts.
** 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, 2D, paper-look.)

** Over the course of the game Vivian [[TookALevelInBadass got a lot stronger]] and was able to beat Beldam multiple times so she won't let anyone push her around any more

** Vivian can be quite forgiving and naive, as illustrated throughout the story, and the ending was seemingly in fashion of the "good guys finish the conflict and forgive all loose ends" pattern usually seen in kids' media. On a darker note, Beldam's behavior towards Vivian is actually quite reminiscent of that in abusive relationships: for the abuser to shed crocodile tears and promise to make amends to lure the abusee back into their control (the results are often less than pretty, even when the abuser is sincerely trying). Or perhaps Beldam and everyone else against her know that she won't and/or can't pull anything else in the future, given that the Shadow Queen has already been defeated, the unsealing of presumably being the biggest threat Beldam could ever pose, so she herself feels no need to be a {{Jerkass}} anymore now that she has no more plans for herself, and everyone else is content to forgive and forget, as {{Karma Houdini}}-ish as it sounds.

** Especially since said palace is sitting on top of Bowser's dreaded castle and it's being prowled by Koopatrols, which Toads have no defense against.
** Dimensions-bending artifacts like these are usually pretty sealed up. Maybe it was airtight.

** But the game said that the Chaos Heart would die with the person who wielded it - that's why Mario and co. spend all that time going after the Pure Hearts, would contradicts the idea that the heart behaves similarly to a spell cast by the one who controls it.

** Considering that [[spoiler: Blumiere and Timpani's geniune vows brought forth the Pure Hearts]], it's possible the fact that it was invalid was the reason that it worked to summon the Chaos Heart in the first place.

** From Beldum's perspective, she doesn't really have to actually stop Mario at any point, as long as somebody opens the door. She just has to act like she's trying.
