** The two red dots on the Ninji sprites are depicted in both the game's official artwork and ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' as red fangs, but later Ninji portrayals reinterpret those dots as big buttons or cheek-blushes.
** The manual identifies Birdo as a boy who likes to dress up as a girl, and that he prefers to be called "Birdetta". Neither of these points would ever be brought up again, and Birdo is referred to as female in all subsequent appearances.
** Also, both the manual and the end credits, as well as the end credits of the ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioAllStars All-Stars]]'' version, identify as Birdo as Ostro, and Ostro as Birdo. It is not clear if this was a mistake or if later games simply swapped their names--''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' is the first to refer to Birdo as Birdo in-game.

** The game marked the debut of several enemies that would become regulars in the ''Mario'' series, but some of them are portrayed here differently. For example, the two red dots on the Ninji sprites are depicted in both the game's official artwork and ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' as red fangs, but later Ninji portrayals reinterpret those dots as big buttons or cheek-blushes.
cheek-blushes. Bob-Ombs have arms and lack the familiar windup keys from their backs (from ''Super Mario Bros. 3'' onwards, it's the other way around, with some exceptions). Pokeys are colored green instead of yellow, and ''can'' be mounted safely (in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', the only way to ride them safely is with the Spin Jump).

* QuicksandSucks: Desert levels have two types; the first takes about 7-10 seconds to completely suck you in and is quite easy to jump out of, the second (sand ''waterfalls'') takes half as long as the first and renders attempting to jump out a hopeless endeavor, though fortunately the first type is typically near it.

There's even a shortcut late in the game that involves going in almost to your cranium.
