* BlatantLies: When Buzzar asks who you are, you can claim to be Princess Peach. She immediately sees through it and concludes you must be Mario trying to pull a fast one. You can also avert the trope by admitting you're Mario, which also starts a fight, or claiming to be Luigi, which she finds plausible enough to accept and let you pass.

* BaitAndSwitchBoss: [[spoiler:The Koopa Bros.]] reappear at the very end of Bowser's castle to fight you... before being [[CurbStompBattle curb stomped]] by [[spoiler:the ''actual'' RecurringBoss, Jr. Troopa]], causing the last Bowser Door to be perpetually confused.

* DiscOneNuke: If you try hard enough to scavenge the world for [[GottaCatchEmAll Star Pieces]], you can buy such things as the Power Plus badge early on in the game. Once you get the Super Boots, you've got Ultra Boots attack power a few chapters early. On that note, a subtler example in that you can go and get the Ultra Boots as soon as Lakilester joins you and use them against Huff N. Puff.

** You acquire the Power-Bounce badge in the Koopa Fortress, which can strike any given (non-ceiling, non spiked, non-burning, although exceptions can be made to those last two) enemy a maximum of ''101 times''. If your timing is good enough, this badge can be almost game-breaking.
** Not really disk one, but if you [[LevelGrinding spam the Amazy Dayzee in the flower fields]] (a good way to do this is to use the mega rush, power rush, and power bounce badges, then start the battle with Mario in peril, be sure to use the bump attack badge to avoid falling victim to other mooks) to quickly reach level 27 and then use the bump attack badge, you can walk through the last two chapters of the game without ever fighting a non-boss enemy. Or having any reason to.

* LostForever: There are three badges (As well as a Jammin Jelly and a Shooting Star) that can be found during Peach's between-chapter interludes, or by Mario himself at the end of the game. If Peach picks them up but fails to deliver them to Mario by the end of the interlude between Chapters 6 and 7, they'll remain in Peach's inventory and can never be obtained by Mario.

** In Luigi's first diary entry, he complains about not being able to go adventuring with Mario and that he prefers the peaceful times where they play [[VideoGame/MariGolf golf]] and [[VideoGame/MarioTennis tennis]] and [[VideoGame/MarioParty have parties]].

** ContinuityCavalcade: The end credits brings back nearly every character of importance, including bosses and other villains, for a big parade down a street near Toad Town. Where appropriate, characters good and bad will put on a show as they pass by the screen, such as Chanterelle's singing and a comedy routine between Tubba Blubba and his heart.

to:

** K64, the train that travels between Toad Town and Mt. Rugged, looks a lot like the train from Kalimari Desert in ''VideoGame/MarioKart64''. The music that plays during the train ride is a [[MusicalNod remix]] of the Kalimari Desert theme.
** The first floor of Peach's Castle looks vaguely similar to its ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' incarnation, while Bow's mansion looks like and has the same rough layout as Big Boo's Haunt.
** Before starting Chapter 5, Mario has to help a whale with digestive issues. When he succeeds, the whale suggests that people ought to call him VideoGame/DrMario.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: [[HypercompetentSidekick Kammy]] [[TheDragon Koopa]] proves to be this, investigating leads about Mario's progress throughout the game, and hindering him however she can. This comes to a head when [[spoiler:she anticipates the possibility of Mario rescuing all seven Star Spirits, and ''prepares for it.'']] The only reason Mario comes out okay is because of a DeusExMachina.
