* TookALevelInBadass: Robo Koopa. His episode starts with a DownerBeginning, with Mario and co. on the run from him in his new, NighInvulnerable PoweredArmor -- complete with a [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/4SH0Q7R6-tY/hqdefault.jpg design]] that looks legitimately menacing. And their attempt to match him with a {{Mecha}} of their own ends in a ShootTheShaggyDog failure. Only a last-second IndyPloy -- and by one of the local [[OneShotCharacter One-Shot Characters]] instead of, you know, Mario and/or any of his friends -- manages to put a stop to his NearVillainVictory. Perhaps fittingly, this is also the GrandFinale.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: "Robo Koopa" -- specifically Mario and Luigi's makeshift robot to combat Koopa's new PoweredArmor. The latter quickly destroys the former, leaving Koopa to have to be defeated via tricking him into ejecting himself from his armor/robot -- meaning Mario and Luigi's robot was completely pointless.

* ForgotAboutHisPowers: Often happens so the plot can progress:
** "On Her Majesty's Sewer Service." Koopa has a magic ring that can invoke TakenForGranite on you. He only uses it once -- on the local guest hero -- but never even attempts to use it on Mario and co.
** "Raiders of the Lost Mushroom." The titular {{MacGuffin}} is a wish-granting artifact with no established limits. Yet neither Mario and co. nor Koopa and co. ever think to simply make a JustEatGilligan wish about their enemies.

The show ran in syndication for 65 episodes (13 weeks) in the fall of 1989. Each of these episodes featured a Mario live-action segment, whilst each Monday-Thursday episode featured a Mario cartoon segment, with Fridays reserved for [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfZelda a cartoon]] based on ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. It has two sequel series: ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' and ''WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld''. After its initial run the cartoon segments became the basis of another show called ''Club Mario'' with different live action wraparounds featuring a pair of TotallyRadical dudes named Tommy Treehugger and Co-M.C.

** Bowser is an UglyCute in the games; however, he isn't remotely attractive in the cartoon.
* AdaptationDyeJob: Yes and No with Princess Toadstool. She's a redhead(or sometimes brown hair in the later episodes- the animation was a bit inconsistent with this show and tended to fluctuate even between scenes) in this series (and its sequels). Official Nintendo art even at the time leaned toward making her blonde as she is in all games from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' on but the hardware/palette limitations of the NES meant she had red hair in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros 1''[[labelnote:*]] (she and the Toads use the Fire Mario palette)[[/labelnote]] and brown hair in ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 SMB 2]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 3]]'', so her hair in these cartoons (which predate ''World'') is at least justified.
