** The citizens of Isle Delfino are in a lather because the Shine Sprites need collecting so they can brighten up the Plaza, yet a ton of said citizens, not the least of which being in the Plaza, already have a number Shine Sprites in their possession. But instead of just pooling them earlier, or giving them to Mario so the island can be brightened sooner, they putter around and make him collect blue coins for them or break crates or whatnot. The keeper of the blue coin Shine Sprites in particular has one-fifth of all the Shine Sprites in his possession, yet he requires ten blue coins each before he'll let any one of them out.

Outside of the plaza is slightly better, such as the hotel on Sirena Beach, one of the Piantas guesses that the shiny object in DroneDram blocked room is a Shine Sprite, not actually knowing what they look like, while those in the plaza have a giant statue of one looking over them, and thus really have no excuse.

* InvisibleWall: There's one in the middle of the ocean which not keeps you not only from going out too far, but also from sequence breaking by selecting a mission in one area and then swimming directly to another. For instance, Delfino Plaza and Ricco Harbor are practically right on top of each other, but if you try to swim from one to the other, you'll ''almost'' make it, then smack right into the invisible wall and have to go back.

* FishbowlHelmet: Mario wears a fishbowl helmet during the missions "Red Coins in a Bottle", "Eely-Mouth's Dentist" and "The Red Coin Fish". The helmet doesn't allow him to breathe underwater forever, though, it just slows down the OxygenMeter.

* WhatTheHellPlayer: The guests in Hotel Delfino will complain about Mario barging into their rooms uninvited, and a Pianta woman will chastise Mario for his presence in the ladies' bathroom. Also, if Mario has a bunch of coins when he talks to the janitor in the attic, he'll call him a greedy little coin-grubber.

** Many Blue Coins are lying out in the open, or have some sort of tell (e.g. graffiti) that lets you know to spray/investigate/etc. Then there are the Blue Coins that require spraying random spots at Gelato Beach and Defino Plaza without any sort of indication that they're there, necessitating the use of a guide to find them.

** It isn't ''cruelty'', exactly, but you can have Mario be quite the bastard if you choose. You can run around Delfino Plaza stealing fruit from the vendors or messing up their displays, or simply go around dousing [=NPCs=] with water and jumping on them. They get upset, but they don't do anything to you. On the other hand, this is a surprisingly satisfying way to deal with characters who are rude to you.
** You can drown Yoshi.

** The intended way to do "The Goopy Inferno" is to go through a specific path in the underside of Pianta Village to reach the location F.L.U.D.D. is at. This can all be bypassed by climbing up the giant tree to the left of the village entrance and jumping off from one of the branches, which is hanging just above the spot you need to go to.
