** Is Yoshi a dinosaur or a dragon? Most sources lean towards "dinosaur". As it turns out, he's a T. Yoshisaurus Rex.

* OldShame: John Leguizamo's film debut (at least he got the worst out of his way early on). He was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar'', the next movie in which he appeared. Bob Hoskins and Dennis Hopper regretted it as well, though they were both well established.

* OldShame: John Leguizamo's first leading film debut role (at least he got the worst out of his way early on). He was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in ''Film/ToWongFooThanksForEverythingJulieNewmar'', the next movie in which he appeared. Bob Hoskins and Dennis Hopper regretted it as well, though they were both well established.



* 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...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 Marios 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]]]] In other words, this draft is much more faithful to the games.

** The biggest one was the reason Jeffrey Katzenberg bought the rights to this film for Creator/{{Disney}}. Had the film been successful, the Walt Disney Company would have then started efforts to market Nintendo and their franchises, led by the Super Mario franchise, of course, in the Ride/DisneyThemeParks. Katzenberg and [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney Animation]] were also working with [[Creator/{{Sega}} Se]][[ArchEnemy g]][[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog a]] to a limited degree for the same reasons with the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' [[VideoGame/AladdinVirginGames video game]][[note]]And the ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' and ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'' cartoon series were distributed by Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo on VHS and LaserDisc through Creator/DiC Toon-Time Video (these tapes start with the green F.B.I. warning screens that also started this movie's VHS and which first appeared on the Walt Disney Studio Film Collection video series; they appeared on all tapes after the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics video of ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''), long before Sonic appeared in the Disney Animated Classic ''Disney/WreckItRalph''.[[/note]], and both attempts virtually faded when Katzenberg departed the company the [[Creator/DreamWorks next]] [[Creator/DreamWorksAnimation year]] (the anti-film mandate from Nintendo also helped thwart Katzenberg's end goal for the movie).
*** Disney's treatment of the film as well as that of Nintendo possibly [[LaserGuidedKarma came back to haunt them later on]]. Cue 2015, when Disney's theme park rival Creator/{{Universal}} successfully [[https://blog.universalorlando.com/whats-new/nintendo-partnership/ negotiates and secures]] a theme park license to use Nintendo properties in their [[Ride/UniversalStudios theme parks]][[note]]Ironically, Universal themselves sued Nintendo to block ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' from circulation more than thirty years before over claims that the game infringed on ''Film/KingKong''. Universal lost that suit, but the legal settlements between the two likely helped warm relations overtime[[/note]]. If the rumors are true, Nintendo's executives still knew/remembered [[NeverLiveItDown how poorly Disney treated them decades ago and were committed to ensuring Disney NEVER got a piece of that pizza]].
