* WholePlotReference: The usual template for an episode of the ''Super Show'' has the heroes traveling to a PlanetOfHats themed around a reference to a certain medium, and then engaging in a WholePlotReference to said media. For example, "Star Koopa" parodying ''Film/StarWars'' and "Toad Warrior" parodying ''Film/MadMax 2: The Road Warrior''. This type of story was mostly dropped for the next two series.

* TookALevelInJerkass: King Koopa, to some extent. His game counterpart occasionally had to [[EnemyMine team up with Mario and his friends to defeat a common enemy]], not unlike other villains in certain other games ([[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Eggman]], [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} King Dedede]], etc.). However, literally no episodes from this show had any occasion where King Koopa had to resort to this. This wouldn't be too bad, except Bowser in the games also has some redeeming qualities, such as seeing Mario as a WorthyOpponent, never harming Peach when he kidnaps her (with [[VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach a]] [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory few]] [[VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld exceptions]]), and being a BenevolentBoss to his minions. This version, however, does not share any of these traits. Comparing these two versions of Bowser makes his cartoon self seem completely black-hearted (to the extent of trying to ''kill'' Santa Claus in "Koopa Klaus"). Subverted in the later cartoons, however, where he still doesn't share Game Bowser's previously stated redeeming qualities, but he's shown to be a caring father when it comes to the Koopalings.

It should be noted that at the time of airing, Bowser's personality hadn't been fleshed out much aside from being the main villain.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: The BigBadWolf despite being, well, [[CaptainObvious Big and Bad]] still doesn't like King Koopa or anyone cutting in on his routine. At the very least he's nice enough to let Princess Toadstool, her grandma and the others go without any torble once Koopa is beaten.

** A female monkey briefly becomes this for Mario/[[IdentityAmnesia Marzan]] after a CrashIntoHello. She only appears [[OneSceneWonder for the one scene]], however, and doesn't show up for the rest of the episode.

** Somewhat averted, as other episodes focus on a different mission of trying to raise money for orphan mushrooms, or helping liberate a "world/kingdom" from King Koopa's grasp.
