* DevelopersForesight: The developers knew of an old trick many players used during the old days of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' where they would have a powered up Mario get hit by Bowser to initiate MercyInvincibility and clip through him to reach the axe on the other side for an easy victory, so this time around, trying the same trick again gets Mario flung backwards by Bowser no matter what state Mario is in. However, the dev team did NOT think that players could use the Mega Mushroom against Bowser to instantly squash him. ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii'' has the same Bowser safeguard and excludes the Mega Mushroom, which forces players to fight Bowser the right way.



* EverythingDances: In the games, all enemies do some sort of action whenever the "bah!" noise plays. While some are harmless like Dry Bones' heads spinning around, some can be beneficial (Pokeys temporarily turn into oranges, which Yoshis can then eat all at once) and some can really mess up your timing (Goombas hop, Koopas pause their walk).

* RevisitingTheRoots: After 10 years of collecting Stars and [[SuperMarioSunshine Shine Sprites]], ''New Super Mario Bros'' and ''New Super Mario Bros Wii'' went back to the original SuperMario premise of having to reach the end of the stage, flagpole at the end and everything. This idea was so successful that ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DLand'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' wound up having the exact game design style transferred to 3-D.

See also ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRun'', which uses the same graphics and mechanics as this series, but with a different control style and exclusivity to mobile devices.

* TheChase: In ''New Super Mario Bros.'' and ''New Super Mario Bros. 2'', the Worlds start out with Bowser Jr. or the Koopalings (''New Super Mario Bros.'' and ''New Super Mario Bros. 2'', respectively) running away into a Castle or Tower/Fortress. A lesser extent is in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' where you chase the Airship that drops off the Koopalings to the Towers. ''New Super Mario Bros. U'' averts this, simply being a journey back to Peach's Castle.

* BreakablePowerUp: As in previous games in the series, getting hit as Super Mario reverts Mario to regular Mario and removes the ability to break bricks, while getting hit as most other versions of Mario reverts him to Super Mario. The Mini Mushroom falls under the "PowerUp loss on loss of a [[VideoGameLives life]]" variant, as unlike most other {{Power Up}}s in the series, it does ''not'' act as a SingleUseShield.
