* EasyModeMockery: In ''Dr. Mario 64'', when playing Round 7 in Easy Mode, it's just you and the Hammer-Bot from ''Wario Land 3''. But in higher difficulties, it's a free-for-all between the aforementioned, your rival, and Mad Scienstein. You also can't face the {{TrueFinalBoss}}es in Easy Mode. Interestingly, Easy Mode also creates a case of WhatHappenedToTheMouse when playing as Wario in the opening for the final round, Dr. Mario is seen entering the castle after Wario, but doesn't show up again after that. In the higher difficulties, however, Dr. Mario just sits there dazed from the free-for-all battle as Wario enters the castle without him.

* DressedToHeal: The lab coat makes sense but there's not reason other than this trope for Dr Mario, who appears to work in pharmaceuticals, to wear a mirror and stethoscope.

* OhCrap: The Viruses in ''Miracle Cure'' get this expression when their respectively-coloured Virus Buster appears in play. All three do this simultaneously when a Zapper or Exploder appears. When there is only one colour of virus left in play in Classic mode, it starts to panic.

''Dr. Mario'' proved just as addictive as its puzzle game parent. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CB1fFeb1n8 Fever]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsBtQCDbTWc Chill]]", the game's two main themes, are almost as iconic as "[[VideoGame/{{Tetris}} Korobeiniki]]". Two other tunes, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MfCfVDJ-2PU Cough]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW2dRDHWuj4 Sneeze]]", have also been present since the N64 iteration.
