** During Bowser's fight with his own castle (he was [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever giant]] at the time) [[TheDragon Midbus]] came out and complained that Bowser was being unfair. Cue Bowser breathing fire on him. It took only one attack for him to retreat.



* InfinityMinusOneSword: A-OK Wear raises all stats by a good amount and prevents all [[StatusEffect Status Effects]]. While you can only get it once you have the Star Rank and it costs a whopping '''20,000''' coins for one pair, it's possible to earn that much money by having Mario and Luigi go out and explore all the areas that Bowser explored at the beginning (As soon as Bowser rescues the Koopa Troopas). It makes the last two dungeons and the Gauntlet a lot easier.

* CurbStompBattle: Bowser ''says'' his [[ClimaxBoss battle]] with [[spoiler: Dark Fawful]] was this in his favor. It was actually one of the hardest boss fights in the game.

* WeightTaller: The Bros Move "Snack Basket" has Luigi gorge himself on sweets until he bloats up into a giant that Mario must toss into the air. If you succeed in doing it right Luigi will belly-flop and [[ShockwaveStomp cause a shockwave]] that hits anyone on solid ground such as a goomba or [[spoiler: the FinalBoss]] or [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime the Shroobs]]]].

* BagOfSharing: Both the Bros and Bowser share coins and items. Makes one wonder where the coins gets stored. Also, when either characters are selling things in shops, the fact that Mario can sell a huge turtle shell and spicy drumsticks and that Bowser can sell mushrooms and overalls is a bit odd.

** The Mighty Meteor special attack the Bros can obtain. It summons a meteor that can be hammered back and forth, slamming into enemies and eventually dropping an item.

** Bowser Memory M and Bowser Memory L's attacks are based on previous ''SuperMarioBros'' games. Mario finds a [[InvincibilityPowerUp Super Star]], or he finds a mushroom and starts breaking blocks. [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion Luigi is chased by a ghost]].

* DuelingPlayerCharacters: Midway through the game, the Mario bros fight Bowser after finally getting out from his insides. Bowser has all of the special attacks that he learned while in the player's command. However, he usually executes them rather poorly, despite being the only enemy capable of performing Action Commands. He also never uses defensive commands such as punching the Bros. when they hammer or ducking in his shell when they jump. To make up for this, he has far more HP during this battle than he ever had under the player's control.

** There was a Mushroom item [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFjDTUcO0lQ that allowed the Bros to heal Bowser during a battle inside him]] (for the Sea Pipe Statue, which could damage Bowser from the inside). It was taken out, presumably because only that ''one'' boss had that sort of attack.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: At one point in the game, the Bros have a boss fight against Bowser. In the fight, Bowser will more than likely have ''no'' stats in common with the ones he had while being controlled by the player, having far more HP than he would have by that point as well as lower power and defense. In addition, none of the gear he may have had on will be in effect, and he'll never use items or do more than an "Ok" with his special attacks.

* GrievousHarmWithABody: The Scutlett boss that swallows Starlow occasionally spits her back out, as an attack towards the Mario Bros. Amusingly, instead of catching her and putting her aside to safety, they delve into the trope too as they ''[[SlapstickKnowsNoGender smash her right back at the boss]]'' as a counterattack. She's obviously peeved about it if the counter succeeds, before getting swallowed up again.

** One of Bowser X's attacks starts off with a simple fireball attack. Upon one of the Bros. hitting it back with a hammer, it sets Bowser on fire, causing him to rain flames on the Bros, then follow it up with a spiked shell ball slam.

The bros hop into a disappearing, reappearing window and continually hop out onto enemies in random order until you miss a hit; either Mario, Luigi, or both at the same time. The frequency of the hops speeds up as you continue to get it right, and when it ''really'' gets going, you can actually see multiple copies of the same bro onscreen at once.

* SequelDifficultySpike: In comparison to ''Partners in Time''. While PiT was short, linear, gave you strong special attacks constantly, and was generally easier than the first game, ''BIS'' is longer, has a wide overworld with complex dungeons, has much more varied specials that actually cost a lot to use, and has some pretty tough fights (especially with the Challenge Medal equipped).
