* PalmtreePanic: Koopa Troopa Beach.



* PalmtreePanic: Koopa Troopa Beach.



* ShortcutsMakeLongDelays: The shortest route through Yoshi's Valley is a narrow, windy path with no railing, falling off will cost you several seconds of recovery time. The [[LeapOfFaith Rainbow Road]] shortcut, capable of giving you an irreversible lead ([[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard against humans]]) if executed properly, will also take forever to recover from if you failed. Same goes for a similar shortcut in Royal Raceway, which ''will'' make you fall into the water; the hard part is getting the game to register your landing in a way that Lakitu deposits you ahead of the section following the ramp and near the finish line, rather than back on the ramp.

** If you have a cheat enabled that allows a human player to be controlled by a CPU, you can see that the computers get almost permanent drafting bonuses while they drive, and the ability to use Bananas, Fake Item boxes, Boos, Stars, and Thunder without driving over an Item box (in fact players must manually trigger a CPU-controlled human's item box if they obtain an item).

* SpritePolygonMix: The backgrounds and some objects are 3D, while the racers and most of the hazards are DigitizedSprites (which looks pretty weird when the camera pans around the parked characters in the award ceremonies).

* SpritePolygonMix: The backgrounds and some objects are 3D, while the racers and most of the hazards are DigitizedSprites (which looks pretty weird when the camera pans around the parked characters in the award ceremonies). The reason they used this was because they wanted the game to maintain a consistent framerate while having all 8 racers on screen at once, which at the time would have much harder to pull off if they were all polygon models.

** The game is programmed to give better items to stragglers than to those in first place so that you can make a comeback if youre falling behind.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: If you get any place lower than 4th, the game will allow you to retry the course again with no penalty. This is extremely helpful in beating the 150cc races.
