After being made into a ''Mario'' title, it was marketed in the North American and PAL release as "''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2''". This was done because the original ''Super Mario Bros. 2'', now known outside of Japan as ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels'', was deemed [[ItsHardSoItSucks too hard]] for American gamers, and [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks too similar]].

** It's possible that these items were leftover from when ''Doki Doki Panic'' was still a ''Mario'' prototype.

Quite a few enemies from this game went on to be integrated into later ''Mario'' games and the wider franchise. In fact, Bob-Oombs would appear in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' and go on to become a series staple. Pokeys and Ponkeys ([[DubNameChange Pansers/Volcano Plants]]) would appear in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' (albeit with changed appearances), as well as Ninjis. Shy Guys, Snifits and souped-up Porcupos (known as Harry Hedgehogs) would appear in ''VideoGame/YoshisIsland'', which chronologically takes place at the beginning of the ''Mario'' series, and also made regular appearances in the ''Super Mario Bros.'' installments of the ComicBook/NintendoComicsSystem before that. Birdo would reappear in ''Wario's Woods'' and has appeared in practically every ''Mario'' sports title since the N64 version of ''Mario Tennis'' in 2000. Also, as late as ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBrosBrawl'', Princess Peach uses many abilities from this game, and this game is the TropeCodifier for Luigi's signature high jump and low traction (even though he had these things in ''The Lost Levels''), as well as Peach's ability to "float-jump", which returned for ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'', ''and'' Toad's "short jumps, incredible run-speed, massive throws" playstyle (natch, ''[=SM3DW=]'').
