* EatingTheEnemy: Attempted by Bowletta during the final boss fight. [[spoiler: She pretends to be defeated, only for a bomb to knock out the bros, and she inhales them up. Unfortunately, this became her [[HoistByHisOwnPetard undoing as]] it lead to a WombLevel where the bros were able to take on her heart and destroy it, thus ending Cackletta for good.]]

** The game has a number of mechanics that doesn't appear within future installments, namely the ability to switch leaders (in other words, make it so that Mario's following Luigi and not the other way around), the Firehand and Thunderhand powers, the fact that the hammers the Mario Brothers obtains gets upgraded twice over the course of the story (to break blocks it couldn't before), the fact that you can change the difficulty of the Bro Moves to make it harder or easier in exchange for the amount of BP it uses and the fact that it's possible for Mario and Luigi to figure out how to do variations of their existing Bro Atacks.

* ExcusePlot: Probably the most notable [[AvertedTrope aversion]] in the entire ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series. The game has ''several'' major {{Plot Twist}}s and features a GambitPileup that doesn't get fully resolved until after the penultimate dungeon.

* LightningFireJuxtaposition: Mario and Luigi get Fire and Lightning abilities respectively. This might be due to their personalities. Mario, a hero, is brave and consistent, though his Fire powers existed before this game as the Fire Flower powerup. But Mario is also aggressive and impulsive, showing a little hotheadedness. Luigi, who is slightly lazy and cowardly(you could say that he's gone in a flash), is also more expressive in his emotions and funnier (he might have a spark of life in him). When Luigi does act, he can make all the difference, and he is as brave as his brother during events with strong enemies. Hence, the partnership between the two.

This is justified as Bowser managed to make his way towards Peach before the Mario Brothers did. Fortunately, it doesn't impact the brothers too much as they still manage to cure Queen Bean after a Beanbean Castle assault and defeat Cackletta for the first time.]]
