* PopQuiz: The Merlee contest in Mimi's Mansion to determine which Merlee is the real one. [[spoiler: It turns out the Merlee that the group decides is real was actually fake.]]
** The doors in Francis's Mansion will give a pop quiz to Princess Peach with nerdy questions. Only Princess Peach is allowed to take the quizzes.

* CallBack: And a pretty funny one at that. At the beginning of the game, Bowser yells at one of his minions for not locking the gate to the castle. When you reach Fort Francis at the end of Chapter 3, Bowser questions what the castle has over his. What's the first obstacle you need to get by? ''A locked gate''.

* MinecartMadness: Mario has to ride a few mine carts in the Floro Caverns and one of them includes lopp-de-loops in the track. Another one has a split that cannot be seen in 2D, so Mario's 3D flip timer is suspended.

** While Bowser was the BigBad in the original ''VideoGame/PaperMario'', he was DemotedToExtra in the previous game. Here, however, he plays a big part in the plot once again.

* BonusDungeon: Two, and one has to be done twice!
** Three, if the Duel of 100 counts. (It's not quite the same thing, though - you still have to do it all at once, but you have the option to save every 25 fights and you can leave at any time.)
* BookEnds: Mario is the only playable character in the very first and very last levels. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Tippi: "It reminds me of when we first met..."

* BonusDungeon: Two, BonusDungeon:
** The Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. 9 floors of fighting enemies to find a key, 1 floor with treasure, an exit,
and one has a door to be done twice!
** Three, if
the next 9 floors. Repeat this until you fight the BonusBoss, [[spoiler:Wracktail]], on floor 100.
** The Flopside Pit of 100 Trials. Imagine the above, but all the enemies are tougher and look like black silhouettes, and the BonusBoss is [[spoiler:silhouettes of the playable characters]]. And you have to complete it twice before you can face the boss and get the reward, for some reason.
** The
Duel of 100 counts.in the postgame. Take on 25 Sammer Guys, one by one, for 4 levels. (It's not quite the same thing, though - you still have to do it all at once, but you have the option to save every 25 fights and you can leave at any time.)

* LivingCrashpad: Bowser and O'Chunks were last seen holding up a DescendingCeiling. The camera cuts to Mario and his friends in another room, and we hear the ceiling come down, suggesting Bowser and O'Chunks were crushed. Later, we see Princess Peach and Mimi fall down a hole in the floor, into their apparent doom. Eventually, [[spoiler: Bowser and Peach return unscathed during the battle with Count Bleck.]]

* PaperThinDisguise: [[IncrediblyLamePun Pun aside]], no one on Mario's side ever knows who Mr. L really is. Not even Mario himself, who only finds him "familiar".
** [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] and played with in Mimi's first appearance. She [[spoiler: disguises as Merlee to fool Mario, leading to a Quiz Game Show in which you're supposed to guess which one is the real deal from the answers. But there's no info on the real Merlee to be used as reference at that point, so it would seem like it's merely a lucky guess, and Mimi's plan would have worked greatly, were it not for the fly that was fluttering around the real Merlee all the time due to [[{{Squick}} hiding in the toilet]]]]

* ProphecyPileup: Zigzagged; both the Light and Dark Prognosticus tell the tale of the end of the world and the heroes who would challenge it, but Merlon openly states that the Light Prognosticus was only written to counteract the Dark one, and isn't actually prophetic. Though the game is very confusing on this point; the characters all act as though the Light Prognosticus is just as valid and consult it for advice, and [[spoiler: in the end, it is the one that ends up fulfilled]].

** Rumor has it that review copies of the game replaced this with something to the effect of, "I will give a game a lower score because I think my readers won't like it." This is a dig at ''[=GameInformer's=]'' review of ''PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''.
