** The art style got even more vibrant and colorful for this game, perfectly reflecting the theme about dreams. The environment is now composed of polygonal models as well.


Added DiffLines:

* ArtShift: The Dream World has a flatter, more cartoony style with less shading.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Why is it that, [[spoiler:for being the main antagonist]], Antasma has [[spoiler:little to no direct conflict]] with the Mario Bros., while [[spoiler:Bowser and his minions are constantly stirring up trouble?]] Furthermore, [[spoiler:Bowser's]] visage is all over [[spoiler:Neo Bowser Castle]], and even the ''name'' of the place; why does [[spoiler:Antasma]] get such little emphasis? [[spoiler:Because he isn't the main antagonist.]]

** When Antasma first teams up with Bowser he ''outright states'' his intentions for teaming up with Bowser, albeit in a way that makes it easily overlooked. [[spoiler: "I vanted to steal Peach's power...But I changed my mind! You are much stronger...and evil!" Is it any wonder Bowser ended up playing him for the fool?]]

* AmbidextrousSprite: Subverted. The bros have unique sprites for running and jumping in ''16'' different directions, as opposed to 8 directions in the previous games. Because Mario always raises his left arm when jumping and Luigi has an L letter on his cap, mirroring their moves would look glaringly obvious.

** Just before Dreamy Mount Pajamaja runs over Mario, Luigi turns giant and sends him flying with a hammer swing.

** Just In an almost literal sense-just before Dreamy Mount Pajamaja runs over Mario, Luigi turns giant and sends him flying with a hammer swing.

* UnexpectedCharacter: [[spoiler:Bowser Jr.]] is an interesting case. He usually wouldn't be unexpected, but he doesn't show up at all until [[spoiler:he's revealed to be the Bonus Boss, showing up with no foreshadowing whatsoever]].

* SeriousBusiness: If you're a member of an entire pillow-like civilization gifted with dream world-related abilities, then this is a given. In addition, the resort Dr. Snoozemore built upon the ruins of their civilization are technically sleep-themed.

* FinishingMove: Giant Luigi battles end using a special move called Finishing Bros. Dreamy Luigi jumps into the sky to retrieve a star. Mario hops on as Luigi throws it at the boss, allowing Mario to guide it into the enemy for the final hit.

** Earthwake has an attack that consists of creating a big ball of bricks it then sends rolling at Giant Luigi. It moves so slowly that jumping on it doesn't require much timing, then you just have to hit Earthwake with it between to swings of its arms, again not that demanding in terms of timing, and you send it directly in the water pond, ready for [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown punishment]]. Add to this that Earthwake doesn't benefit from its heavy armor when attacking, rendering it useless against this counterattack if it was on and you hadn't broken it yet.

* ThrowTheDogABone: Luigi seems to be treated with more respect in this game from nearly every character remembering his name, except Bowser of course [[spoiler:(and even he remembers it at the very end after having his tail handed to him by Luigi in the final giant battle and the final boss fight)]] He's generally the one to come up with ideas on how to solve things such as the solution to opening the Pi'illos door panels and significantly, he gets equal credit alongside Mario for helping save Pi'illo Island and, by extent, the world. Even Starlow is (a little) less teasing to him this time round.
