* BlindIdiotTranslation: The English manual is more or less a direct translation of the Japanese, with enemy names transliterated rather than being [[DubNameChange renamed in localization]], as is the norm for this series. Even when a localization convention exists, it is ignored: thus, Piranha Plants go by "Pakkun Flower" (their Japanese name) in this game, and enemies that are obviously intended to be subspecies of normal ''Mario'' enemies (i.e. ''Gira'' for ''Kira'' or Bullet Bill, or ''Nokobon'' for ''Nokonoko'' or Koopa Troopa) wind up with names that are completely incomprehensible to English-speaking fans. Granted, none of this comes up in the game itself, but the manual ''was'' meant to be a companion piece to the game in those days.

** The 2011 Virtual Console rerelease fixed some of this by renaming some of the common enemies, like "Goombo" and "Bullet Biff".

* NoPronounciationGuide: This being a Game Boy game from 1989, there are of course, no voices. As a result, a number of people wouldn't know that "Muda Kingdom" isn't supposed be pronounced "Mooda", but rather, "Myuda" (as in "Bermuda").

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS VirtualConsole rerelease modified the translation of enemy names, with one being an example: Bombshell Koopas. When stomped on, their shells explode without Mario getting a chance to kick them.

* GratuitousJapanese: Most of the monster names are still in Japanese. Until the UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS VirtualConsole release translated the variants of recurring Mario enemies, this applied to even [[MascotMook the Goombas]], which were originally called Chibibo worldwide (and retranslated as Goombo).

* OddballInTheSeries: The game plays like a traditional Mario platformer, but throws out all sense of familiarity after that, as spoofed in this Brawl in the Family [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2011/06/13/341-super-mario-land-is-weird/ comic]]. And yes: to say that the game stands out as weird in a series starring [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs an Italian plumber who eats magical mushrooms and flings fireballs at turtle monsters]] is certainly a mouthful, but it's true.

* HitboxDissonance: Small Mario is a bit taller than a block yet he's still able to go through a tiny gap between two blocks with his head clipping throug the upper block. ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5q5KZvsSho here]] at 0:40)

Added DiffLines:

* KingKoopaCopy: Tatanga the [[MarsNeedsWomen extra-terrestrial]] is another Mario BigBad who takes inspiration from the series' main antagonist. However, his "Bowser expy" side was mostly used in the ''ComicBook/GameBoy'' comics.

*** The Palette Swap status is OlderThanTheyThink -- Daisy actually appeared with her more "modern" look in ''NES Open Tournament Golf''.

* KungFuProofMonk: The Pionpi of the Chai Kingdom cannot be defeated by GoombaStomp, but only with a Super Ball. It's nearly impossible to tell how from the game itself, but these guys are actually based off of the ''Jiangshi'', or Chinese vampire-zombies.

[[caption-width-right:350:So if Mario's [[WalkOnWater walking on water]], does that mean he's [[Music/TheBeatles bigger than Jesus]]? [[note]] His apparent ability to tri-locate can mean any number of things.[[/note]]]]
