* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: No GoombaStomp, and the turtles kill you when you try to jump on them. There's also no Princess Peach, Bowser, or the Mushroom Kingdom. Just two plumbers dealing with creatures in a Brooklyn sewer.

Keep track of the green fireballs as they will appear more frequently. The red fireball can also be a menace. If need be, you can hit the fireballs from below when they touch the platform. Beware of hitting the red fireball. It rapidly reappears and moves much faster.

** {{Inverted|Trope}} in the original and Super NES versions of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''. If you enter the same space as the other player, you get to play a NewGamePlus version of this game. You must kill five enemies, like in the original, and if you hit the other player from below, you get to steal his cards. So, if you have two Stars, and the other guy has one, you can steal that card, and you'll get five extra lives, just like in the main game! You won't get the fanfare, though. The players' status (Super, Fire, Raccoon, etc.) have no effect in this game; both players are small.

* VideoGameRemake: The GameBoyAdvance version. Most of it is based on the [[NoExportForYou Famicom Disk System version, ''Kaettekita Mario Bros.'']][[note]]"Return of Mario Bros.", or alternately "Mario Bros. Returns"[[/note]], which is slightly closer to the original arcade version, but allows you to change directions while jumping.[[note]]A feature from post-VideoGame/SuperMarioBros games.[[/note]] Most people mainly remember this game due to it being released on '''all''' Super Mario Advance games '''''and''''' ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga''.

* BonusLevel: One where the only goal was to collect all the coins before time ran out.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Alas, poor Shellcreeper. In all remakes of this game except for the ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'' level, Shellcreepers are replaced with Spinies. {{Justified|Trope}}; being turtles, Shellcreepers were the predecessors of the later Koopa Troopas, which they're nigh-identical to, and that would cause confusion.

** Shellcreepers were renamed Koopa Troopas. [[note]]Or they're two different sets of characters, depending on who you ask.[[/note]]
** Inverted with Fighterflies, who are called by that name in the MarioAndLuigi {{Role Playing Game}}s. They're even a variant called "Superflies".
* JumpPhysics: Partially averted in the original game since it lacked the ability to change direction in midair. The Japan-exclusive update ''Kaetta Kita Mario Bros'' introduced this in order to bring it in line with the ''SMB'' series, and every other UpdatedRerelease has kept this as part of the game.

* TremorTrampoline: The POW Block works by bouncing the entire stage each time it's hit, which potentially flips enemies over so you can knock them away. As a result, it does not work on enemies currently in the air, especially Fighterflies. In two player mode, it also makes the other player bounce up slightly.
