* BigFancyCastle: Castle Bleck and Fort Francis. Bleck being a villain, a ManOfWealthAndTaste, and filthy rich, it's obvious he'd get such a gorgeous castle, but you wouldn't really expect a nerd as big as Francis to live in a massive castle. (On the other hand, Francis' castle is a giant eight-bit assembly staffed by [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Catgirl Maid Weapons Systems]]).

* DatingSim: [[ParodiedTrope Parodied]] in Chapter 3-4. Francis can't speak to girls (like Peach) directly, and instead uses an interface that plays like one of these. You can choose Peach's answers for her.

* DevelopersForesight: At one point, the player can use a Koopa to repeat the "infinite lives" exploit from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'', which in this game would grant infinite points instead. Do it for more than a few seconds to try and level up, and it will deduct points from your score to prevent you from staying there to max out your level.

* DreadfulDragonfly: Planet Blobule is the home to weird dragonfly-like aliens called Choppas. They are dangerous foes, as they can freely shift between 2D and 3D, have a very unpredictable movement pattern and are as big as Mario.

** To the point where if a cutscene calls for more than one playable character to be on camera, the others have to appear or disappear BehindTheBlack. A notable instance takes place during the Overthere Stair level -- in the cutscene where Peach returns to your party, whichever character you are using (Mario, Luigi, or Bowser) feeds her a black apple to wake her up, which tastes disgusting. Her WildTake knocks the single character off camera, then Mario, Luigi, and Bowser all walk back on camera. After a while of discussion, Luvbi interrupts, and the camera moves to get her in frame, conveniently leaving Mario, Luigi, and Bowser out of the shot again. Peach remains on camera for the rest of the cutscene, and when gameplay returns, Mario, Luigi, and Bowser are no longer standing there -- you're controlling Peach now, but you can switch back to one of the others.

The plot is [[DarkerAndEdgier noticeably darker]] than the previous entries. Mario and Luigi hear that Princess Peach has been kidnapped (again) and go off the Bowser's Castle. Except that [[NotMeThisTime he didn't do it]]. At that moment, a strange guy named Count Bleck appears with Peach and takes Bowser, the Koopa Troop, and Luigi to his stronghold, Castle Bleck. Mario is left out cold until he is awoken by Tippi, a Pixl. She brings him to the town of Flipside. Meanwhile, Bleck forces a marriage between Bowser and Peach, summoning the Chaos Heart and causing a rift called The Void to appear. Mario must fight Bleck and his strange FiveBadBand to save the multiverse.

* AllTheWorldsAreAStage: Before Dimentio allows you fight him at the end of Chapter 8-3, you first have to chase him through sections from the seven previous worlds.

* AntiHero: Given that Bowser, the regular BigBad of the Mario series is on the side of the heroes, he is definitely this. You even have to fight him a few times and he's mostly down for the quest because for one, if all of the worlds are destroyed then he won't have anything left to rule over, two, he enjoys taking on and defeating enemies, and three, he does it to try and impress his supposedly new wife, Princess Peach.
* AntiVillain: Count Bleck, who - despite wanting to unmake the world - genuinely cares for his henchmen, and [[spoiler:is driven by the loss of his love rather than actual evil (even helping the heroes near the end after being reunited with her)]].
