**The best ending to the sequel, ''Mario's Time Machine'', is arguably just as cruel. Bowser is repeatedly stomped on by a giant dinosaur until he's nothing more than a flattened pile of mush. The PC version adds a bit of humour by implying he was stomped into a frisbee, as a raptor picks him up and throws him into the distance. Nevertheless, the best ending to the SNES ending makes you wish Bowser got the bad ending instead, where he uses his time machine to go off to a tropical island and relax.

* And, as AVGN pointed out, the citizens of New York are not nonplussed about King Kong being abducted by the Koopas.

* HeadSwap: The SNES version has all the Koopalings share the same exact body.


Added DiffLines:

* The Koopalings in the SNES version not only suffer HeadSwap syndrome, but their bodies have the same green shell, even though they typically have shells of different colors and sizes to reflect their character.

The premise is that {{B|igBad}}owser [[EvilPlan plans to]] [[TheGreatFlood flood Earth]], and he sends Koopas to steal famous landmarks to help fund his operation. Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi travel to Bowser's castle to stop him. Mario enters all by himself and gets captured, prompting Luigi to go and rescue him.

** Yoshi in the PC version looks like someone who had tried to draw him after only seeing him once. Yoshi's body is very elongated and his head is laughly small, along with having a pair of just as comically small arms. When viewed from the front, Yoshi looks like he suddenly became obese and very wide.

* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: While each city's mayor acknowledges that a bunch of Koopa Troopas with stolen artifacts are running loose, the citizens don't seem to be bothered by the problem or the fact that there's sentient turtle-like beings roaming the streets. The PC version softens the blow slightly when a civilian, when asked, will tell you where the nearest Koopa is, but that is all you will get in terms of acknowledgement.



* WarpWhistle: The PC version allows you to travel to any location in the city you're in as long as you have taxi tokens to hail a cab.

** In the PC version, at least two castle hallways have shields bearing the faces of Larry, Roy, Iggy, Ludwig, and Lemmy... except Lemmy is blatantly Larry with Lemmy's hair in a glaring example of cutting corners. Bowser in the PC version has brown hair instead of orange (which was his default color before later games were able to show him as a redhead) and his tail is somehow a part of the shell rather than his body, which also shows that his actual body has no tail after Luigi yanks the shell off.
** Mario in the SNES version has purple overalls instead of the usual blue.

off. The SNES version has Bowser with a very small belly/body, making his legs and arms looking too big by comparison. Strangely, the NES version has most of Bowser sprites being a direct copy from the ones used in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' with some slight discoloration.
** Mario in the SNES version and NES versions has purple overalls instead of the usual blue.
