* WakeUpCallBoss: Queen Bean -- at that point, the game quits playing around with you and expects you to ''really'' know how to do timed attacks, dodge, and counter. Fortunately, taking out her arms will weaken her.

* CombinationAttack: The main draw of the game is the way Mario and Luigi team up for puzzles and fighting. In all, their Bros Moves are the Splash Bros, Chopper Bros, Fire Bros, Bounce Bros, Knockback Bros, Thunder Bros, Swing Bros, and Cyclone Bros.

In one of the most elaborate original games made for the Game Boy Advance, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] is sent to the Beanbean Kingdom, which conveniently adjoins the Mushroom Kingdom. Luigi reluctantly goes along after Mario and Bowser [[EnemyMine join forces]]. The BigBad Cackletta reportedly has stolen Princess Peach's voice (yes, her voice) in order to activate the Beanstar, an artifact with the power to grant wishes.

* ArtisticLicenseEconomics: At the start of the game, the exchange rate between Mushroom Kingdom coins and Beanbean coins is pretty shabby, something like 100M = 10B. Later on, Prince Peasley cockily bets 99,999,999,999,999 Mushroom Kingdom coins that he'll find the PlotCoupons first; even with the poor exchange rate this is a pretty sweet deal. But when he makes good on the bet at the end of the game, the converted value of his promised ante is...99 Beanbean coins, meaning that over the course of a single game, the Mushroom Kingdom's economy has crashed so irretrievably that statistically, even the ''houseflies'' are begging for change in the streets of the nearest stable economy (probably Beanbean). Although it does take MoneyForNothing to its logical conclusion.

* DevelopersForesight: The Tutorial Bowser, as with all the Bowser boss fights during the game, is programmed to be healed if it's hit with a fire-based attack and be vulnerable to thunder-based attacks.

** The game has a number of mechanics that don't appear in 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, for the purpose of using certain techniques), the Firebrand and Thunderhand powers (though techniques such as the Fire and Ice Flowers are usable in later games), the fact that the hammers the Mario Brothers obtains gets upgraded twice over the course of the story (to break blocks they 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 Attacks.

** Several recurring Mario enemies are given unique designs including Dry Bones walking on all fours, thin and birdlike Boomerang Bros. and Hammer Bros. that are much fatter (making them look more like Sledge Bros. than typical Hammer Bros.). Latter games used the standard designs of these enemies.

Unfortunately, this [[HoistByHisOwnPetard became their undoing]] as it lead to a WombLevel where the bros were able to take on the Essence of Cackletta, and destroy her heart, thus ending Cackletta for good.]]

Sadly it doesn't last long though, as throughout the whole game [[ArbitraryHeadcountLimit events conspire to prevent him from helping]] for anything other than getting to the Beanbean Kingdom.
