* CreatorBacklash: Semi-averted. Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto actually admitted that he liked how the movie took creative liberties. Ultimately played straight with Hoskins, Hopper and Leguizamo.
** However, in recent years, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5S0v_lrGlg according to this video]], Leguizamo has warmed up to the film.
* CreatorKiller: Roland Joffe (''Film/TheKillingFields''), the producer of the film, never really recovered from the film's failure, though his adaptation of ''Literature/TheScarletLetter'' certainly didn't help.
** Also, the directing team of Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel, whom Bob Hoskins called "arrogant" in 2007, have not been involved with any other theatrical release since this movie.

* MoneyDearBoy: The reason this film has one of the highest Embarrassed Actor Quotients of recent times. Apparently many very good actors were having critical shortages of money around the same time Ö both Dennis Hopper and Bob Hoskins admitted they did it for the paycheck.

* StillbornFranchise: The movie's troubled production, box-office failure, and resulting mandate from Nintendo ended the production of a sequel, and dashed studio chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg's dreams of bringing Nintendo products into Disney's business model. More drastically, it put Nintendo off licensing their products for live action films to this day.
* TroubledProduction: As Creator/DennisHopper put it, "It was a nightmare, very honestly, that movie. It was a husband-and-wife directing team who were both {{control freak}}s and wouldn't talk before they made decisions. Anyway, I was supposed to go down there for five weeks, and I was there for seventeen. It was so over budget."

** An early draft of the script shows that Bowser only disguises himself as a human in his first two scenes, the Princess character is named Hildy and Bowser wants to marry her in attempt to obtain the Crown of Invincibility with which to take over the Mushroom Kingdom. Actual game enemies such as Piranha Plants and Thwomps make appearances, Toad accompanies the Mario brothers throughout their journey as a main character, a baby dinosaur named Junior thinks Mario is his mother, Luigi gets Raccoon Power at one point, one of Bowser's lackeys (a possible prototype for Kamek) tells Mario "YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle", Mario and Luigi sing a VillainSong for Bowser, [[spoiler:Bowser [[DisneyVillainDeath ends up falling into a pit of lava]]]] Ö In other words, this draft is much more faithful to the games.

Her original voice was brought back in ''[[UpdatedRerelease Super Mario 64 DS]]'', complete with newly recorded lines for the ending to take the added playable characters into account... and then she's back to her high voice for the subsequent games.

* WordOfDante: Several games have had single Magikoopa characters/enemies which were nameless or seemingly generic, but the fandom has universally decided that they are all Kamek. Some examples include the Magikoopa who was going to be in ''VideoGame/MarioKart64'' but was replaced with Donkey Kong; the Magikoopa who blasts Mario away from Peach's Castle in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' (a trading card for ''SMG'' confirms that it was indeed Kamek); the Magikoopa who aids Bowser in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]''; and the Magikoopa who was a boss in ''VideoGame/YoshisSafari''. Two games, ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' and ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach'', do have Kamek in them, but he was unnamed or misnamed in the English versions. Bizarrely, ''[[VideoGame/MarioParty Mario Party DS]]'' has him named Kamek, but in ''Mario Party 9'' he is named "Magikoopa" in the North American version... but not the European version.

As per being the creators of ''Series/MaxHeadroom'', they saw the movie as a subversive, gritty sci-fi film à la ''Film/BladeRunner'', while everyone else saw it as a dumb movie based on a video game kids seemed to like. There was even one incident where they poured scalding hot coffee over an extra's head ''simply because they thought he didn't look dirty enough''. The end result of their work fittingly torched their careers.

** The infamous ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' episode "Kootie Pie Rocks", where Music/MilliVanilli guest star as themselves. In November 1990, just two weeks after it first aired, Milli Vanilli were outed as lip-syncing their songs and their popularity plummeted.

** Mario and Luigi actually confronting the "Scarpelli Bros.", Mike and Doug, in the River Front Cafe. They threaten the cafe's owner, Pascal, by using their bosses' name. Pascal takes Mario aside and offers him and Luigi a free lunch to make it up to them, which leads to:
** An alternate scene of Mario and Luigi eating. Daisy enters the cafe and uses the payphone inside, slipping on a wet floor as she leaves. Luigi catches her and the movie continues that way.

* DevelopmentHell: Went through a rapid version of this, with over a half-dozen different writers, 3 sets of directors, and both Tom Hanks and Dustin Hoffman expressed interest in playing Mario before being shot down by executives. In the end, the script was almost entirely rewritten onset with the cast, director, producers, and Nintendo all not talking to each other. Then, allegedly due to drinking on set, Haskel ran into Leguizamo with a car, breaking his leg. You can even see the cast in some shots of the movie.
* EnforcedMethodActing: Mojo Nixon, who played Toad, was legitimately terrified of Dennis Hopper's performance as Koopa, particularly the scene where he was de-evolving and strapped to the chair.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The script by writers Dick Clement and Ian la Frenais was so sophisticated and intelligent that it inspired Bob Hoskins, Dennis Hopper and Fiona Shaw to sign onto the project. However, the producers feared it wasn't kid-friendly enough, so they forced heavy re-writes and barred directors Rocky and Annabel from contributing to them.

* GenreKiller: For video game-based movies as a whole, for it was one of the first such films of this kind and set a very low standard for future such films to come.
