* LostForever:
** An invisible chest in the Mushroom Kingdom castle can ''only'' be reached at the ''very beginning of the game'' when Toad is running down the hall, by jumping onto his head and then leaping up to a platform where the chest is. Besides the fact the platform is part of the doorframe and nothing would indicate you can step there, you don't even find out the chest was there until late in the game when you acquire an accessory that alerts you to hidden chests, and for some reason you get a higher boost off of Toad's head than anyone else, so only he can get you up there that one time. GuideDangIt to the extreme.
** Samus's cameo is only available during a certain period in the game. However, as soon as Link appears in a similar manner, he stays there the whole game.
** Some of the items you can buy from Seaside Town can ''only'' be acquired before you liberate it. On the bright side, most of them aren't that good so you won't miss much.
** Beating Croco's Crooks in the Coal Mines will earn you extra Flower Points. But only if you choose to fight Croco last instead of immediately.



* MagikarpPower:
** The Mystery Egg (see above).
** Mario's Jump. See GuideDangIt above.

** The battle against Birdo. Although you can beat Birdo by sheer force, it will take a lot of level grinding to bypass her defense and her egg attacks can seriously damage your party. [[GuideDangIt What isn't told about the fight]] is if you have your characters use Defend, the eggs will bounce back to Birdo's nest and become targets. Destroying the eggs afterwards creates an explosion that severly hurts Birdo.
*** An NPC in the same area actually hints at it, but many players thought "when you shield yourself" simply meant executing a timed-defense.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Toadstool's Psych Bomb attack (the last attack she earns). Hits everyone and definitely makes her a bit of a {{Badass}} but it burns a lot of FP that could be better used for her healing abilities.

Due to licensing problems, very few of the characters that made their debut in this game have recurred in later Mario games, including fan-favorite Geno. But worry not! The game has appeared on the Wii's VirtualConsole for all regions!

''Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars'' is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin; it is the first ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' game to be a RolePlayingGame. It was developed by Creator/{{Nintendo}} and Creator/{{Square|Enix}} and released in 1996 for the {{S|uperNintendoEntertainmentSystem}}NES -- this gives it the honor of being the last ''Mario'' game made for that system.

* DualBoss: Knife Guy and Grate Guy. Valentina and Dodo. Cloaker and Domino, followed by (depending on which one you beat) Cloaker and Earth Link, or Domino and Mad Adder. Factory Chief and Gunyolk. And the chest monsters Box Boy and Chester, which respectively summon a Fautso and a Bahamutt, could be seen as this too.

* ShootTheMedicFirst: When taking on the Axem Rangers, targeting the pink ranger first is suggest by the official guide book because if Pink is active, she will heal her party members. This is actually '''bad''' advice--Green does by far the most damage of the Axem Rangers with his spells, and he has lower hitpoints and defense than Pink, so he should be taken out first.

*** And if that's not enough, duplicates of many of the previous bosses now appear as regular mooks throughout the stage. Most of them aren't any weaker than they were in their initial appearance... though theoretically Mario and friends should be much more powerful by now.
