** 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 (of course) by the Super Mario franchise, in the Ride/DisneyThemeParks. Katzenberg and [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney Animation]] were also working with Creator/{{Se|ga}}[[ArchEnemy g]][[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog a]] to a limited degree for the same reasons with the ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' [[VideoGame/AladdinVirginGames video game]],[[note]]Also, 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 FBI 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).

** Sources aren't really sure if Wario and Waluigi are brothers or not (although they've mostly settled on not). They also aren't sure if Toad and Toadette are siblings or love interests as well.

** Do Mario and Luigi have last names? Over time the official word has flipped between "we don't know", "no, they don't", "yes, but we don't know what it is (and it's not 'Mario')", and "yes, and it ''is'' 'Mario'", eventually settling on the last. So, the [[Film/SuperMarioBros movie]] was right all along!

** The Koopalings' relation to Bowser. From their introducion in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' to as late as ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'', they were explicitly stated to be Bowser's own children. Then in 2010 they were retconned into being unrelated to Bowser, but still high ranking members of his army whom [[AFatherToHisMen he treats as such]]. Then in 2014, ''VideoGame/MarioKart8'' and ''Super Smash Bros. 4'' shifted the relationship again from a definite "No!" to an ambiguous "Maybe" with some of them being labeled as Koopa royalty and their relationship to Bowser being described as "unknown".

* WordOfSaintPaul: Charles Martinet (talking in-character as Mario) confirmed the Mario last name at Comic Con 2012, prior to the FlipFlopOfGod finally settling on same. Mind you, he also confirmed that Mario's mother is named "Mama Mia Mario", so how seriously you take his statements in that role is up to you.

* 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 noted under CreatorBacklash, Leguizamo is far less negative about the movie nowadays.

Added DiffLines:

** To cut a long story ''extremely'' short, it's safe to say that literally everything that could go wrong did go wrong. The script changed several dozen times, including by the day during filming, the directors and writers being forbidden from interacting, the directors being ''locked out of the editing booth'' during the editing process until they got the Writer's Guild to back them up, and gigantic amounts of ExecutiveMeddling.
