* PalatialSandcastle: A massive sand-gate act as a portal to one of the Shine Sprites. As might be expected, though, it will collapse quickly if you don't hurry through it.

** The residents of Delfino Plaza are not only unwilling to lift a finger to help recover the Shine Sprites or capture Shadow Mario, but at multiple points, there's a man running around ''on fire'' and nobody else seems motivated to try to help him. What makes it even worse is that [[TooDumbToLive the man on fire doesn't even help]] ''[[TooDumbToLive himself]]''. He runs back and forth endlessly along the same few feet of sidewalk, despite the fact that he's only a few yards away from a huge body of water.

** The Pianta citizens of Isle Delphino in general seem to be either completely apathetic or simply to unintelligent to be of any help most of the time. This is surprisingly inverted with the Noki, a minority of shellfish people, who are both smart enough to notice Shadow Mario and Mario are two obviously different people as well as actively assist Mario however they can while he is cleaning up their own section of the island.

* ContinuityCavalcade: When FLUDD is scanning Mario, the camera switches to FLUDD's point of view. A small screen in the corner of its HUD shows scenes from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'', ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'', and ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' during the scan.

* NintendoHard: Several Shine Sprite objectives require very precision platforming skills or excellent timing. Shout-out goes to the Delfino Plaza mission that requires you to keep a Yoshi alive (by not falling into the water or having its Juice meter deplete) as you ride it to a pipe on a far-off island that you need to de-gunk by hopping across several slow-moving boats. Once you get there and jump in the pipe, you have to ride down a polluted waterway that instantly kills Mario if he falls in, riding on slowly disintegrating leaves to collect red coins. There's also the Red Coin level based on a pachinko machine that is incredibly difficult due to wonky physics.

* SuddenlyVoiced: This is the first and so far only ''Super Mario'' game to use an extensive voice acting system in the cutscenes. Bowser in particular never had English dialogue in the games until now.

* BigBad: The main villain and FinalBoss is once again Bowser, as it was his idea to frame Mario and ruin his vacation. However, [[OrcusOnHisThrone he's content to just lounge around enjoying his own vacation]] while his son does all of the work.

** Mario sometimes says "Arrivederci" (Good-bye) when he dies. In some translations of the game, "Arrivederci" even appears on the screen when you lose a life instead of "Too bad!".



* TheHeavy: Bowser Jr. may not be the BigBad, but he is the most recurring antagonist and the one to drive the plot. He frames Mario for polluting Delfino Island and shows up at every level at least once to screw with him.

Bowser Jr., on the other hand, is the most recurring antagonist and the one to drive the plot. He frames Mario for polluting Delfino Island and shows up at every level at least once to screw with him.

** 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.
*** VideoGameCaringPotential: In some situations, the characters will be happy to be sprayed. Specifically, if they are covered in gunk, if they are on fire or if you spray the pianta working inside the cannon. The sunflowers at Pinna Park can't be jumped on and they'll always respond happily to being sprayed with water; they even reward you with coins when you do so.

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The sunflowers with eyes that only have bright looks and warm greetings for Mario unless something is actively trying to kill them. They are also the only NPCs consistently answer in a positive way to being sprayed with water.
