* ExcusePlot:
** The game starts with Mario standing in front of a bush, with a one-paragraph summary that explains that Mario, Luigi and Peach came to Dinosaur Land for a vacation, Peach was kidnapped ''again'' by Bowser, and you have to save her. Notably, the GBA remake averts this by having a cutscene showing when they arrive at the island and how Peach was taken (the Mario brothers discover the Koopa Capes and go to test them out, while Bowser uses the distraction to kidnap Peach).
** The captive Yoshis taken by Bowser and hidden in his castles are counted as saved in the credits, regardless of whether the player beats all seven castles or uses the Star World shortcut to skip right to the end.

The game features its own unique elements, some of which were not caught on by the rest of the series. ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU'' is basically credited for being a remake of the game for WiiU, getting about as close to the original game as any other. It's also been nicknamed ''New Super Mario World''.

Also, this game is also notable for being the first game (along with ''VideoGame/{{Pilotwings}}'') on crediting Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto's as the creator of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' for non-Japanese players, rather than using a pseudonym as previous games did.[[note]]Albeit for Japanese players, his real name was revealed much earlier in ''Anime/TheGreatMissiontoSavePrincessPeach'' in 1986.[[/note]]

''Super Mario World'' (which has the subtitle ''Super Mario Bros. 4'' [[TheForeignSubtitle in Japan]]) is a 1990 video game produced by Creator/{{Nintendo}} as a launch title for their [[UsefulNotes/The16BitEraOfConsoleVideoGames 16-bit console]], the UsefulNotes/SuperNintendo. It features their iconic mascot, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]], taking a vacation alongside his brother Luigi and [[DamselInDistress Princess Peach]] (then still referred to in America as Princess Toadstool) to the faraway Dinosaur Land. There, as is prone to happen, Princess Toadstool is captured by [[BigBad Bowser]] and kept in his castle, this time located in the deep underground. Of course, Mario must journey through the entire continent to get to her, beating down Bowser's loyal lackies / children, [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad the seven Koopalings]], along the way.

* AscendedGlitch: Climbing a vine, kicking a shell/P-Switch upwards, and climbing with it is considered a glitch in Super Mario World. However, hacks have done wonders with this, especially when incorporating puzzles.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: When Spike Tops were introduced in this game, they had six legs and differently-shaped shells from Buzzy Beetles. In all later appearances (when they were more clearly established as a sub-species of Buzzy Beetle), they have only four legs and look identical to Buzzy Beetles except for their spikes (and sometimes their color).
