* The Happy Lucky Lottery is, for the most part, a very fun and bright interpretation of the lottery run by a big, enthusiastic Bob-omb named Lucky. It also happens to run based on the console's clock. Try to exploit it or accidentally change the time in some way, and Lucky will look frustrated when you load the game. Talk to him, and he'll reveal that there were shenanigans with the lottery and ask if Mario/the player was responsible. If you say yes, then Lucky will go absolutely crazy, repeating the same phrases over and over before shutting the game down. [[spoiler:Or at least, so it seems. In reality, he'll charge you 500 coins for a new ticket and warn you not to do it again]].

** Oh, and dotted around Jade Jungle are Hurt Plants, which look [[ChestMonster exactly like Heart Plants]]. Should you interact with one, expecting the [[MostWonderfulSound gentle chime]] (and titular heart) from a heart plant, you're in [[JumpScare for a]] [[DemonicSpiders nasty]] [[DamageOverTime surprise]]. Should I mention again that these things are [[ParanoiaFuel identical to Heart Plants]]?
** The way Lava Piranha dies is fairly unnerving, what with his body flailing about in pain before falling before you like a felled tree. And then his body slides back into the lava, never to be seen again. Sure, [[ISurrenderSuckers the first time he did that]] [[OneWingedAngel led to him coming back more dangerous than ever]], this time he's down for good, with [[CollapsingLair the volcano erupting and his chamber being submerged in bubbling magma]] for good measure. In comparison to [[HoistByHisOwnPetard how the earlier bosses]] [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere expressed their respective defeats]], this can come across as unnerving to say the least.

** A secret area contains a giant beehive. Hit its tree with your Hammer... and a [[DemonicSpider Bzzap!]] [[JumpScare comes out to "greet" you]].

** Twilight Town is a gloomy hamlet inhabited by equally dismal townsfolk, complete with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aC-tjZfVk5w&spfreload=10 some very depressing music]]. The scenery consists of dead trees, a [[WeirdMoon massive full moon with a deathly glow]], and buildings that take on a uniformly listless shade of brown. It's actually a somewhat hospitable community despite the oppressively dour atmosphere (oh, and speaking of "dour", that just so happens to be the mayor's name - "Mayor Dour").

** Boo's Mansion itself doesn't seem too bad; no enemies, just a set of "go here, get this, go somewhere else, and do something with it" puzzles when you get right down to it... but when you open certain doors for the first time, suddenly a Boo tries to scare you. It's completely harmless, but if that isn't startling...


Added DiffLines:

** Monstar[[spoiler:, at least until you realize its true nature (that it's actually a cluster of Star Kids banking on a bluff to keep Starborn Valley safe) and how utterly weak it is]]. Goombario can tell you that it has only 20 HP and 0 Defense, but not what its Attack is. It looks pretty impressive, and if you don't know otherwise, you're probably expecting to go down in one hit. [[spoiler:It does only 1 Damage, and that's if you don't block.]] In-universe, Goombario mentions that "[he gets] the funny feeling [he] had a nightmare about it."

** Actually, the thing on his head is only a postal stamp. However, the creepiness of his lifeless body being folded origami style and sent through the mail system ''definitely'' remains.

** If the player happens to answer three questions incorrectly at the second Bowser Door, they are greeted with the ''Anti Guys Unit'' that can obliterate unprepared players.

** Mario[[spoiler:'s body when [[GrandTheftMe Doopliss takes it over]] becomes pretty unnerving with its facial expressions and posture not seen from Mario otherwise. His eyes become [[OpenTheIris wider]] and [[BlackEyesOfEvil hollow]], and do not blink; his body more [[LimpAndLivid hunched over]], and his voice becomes [[VoiceOfTheLegion metallic]]. When fighting against Doopliss alongside the Shadow Sirens the Palace of Shadow, he uses this ghastly form of Mario when copying his form.]]

* During the final battle, [[spoiler:if Huey blocks as many attacks as he can, then tries to block one more, he gets knocked out of Mario's hands while shouting "It's no good! My body can't take it anymore!" His dead body then collapses next to Mario's, and the screen fades to white, followed by the game over screen]].
