!!Tropes appearing in the original game:game:



* AscendedExtra: Captain Goomba, the main protagonist of the'' Minion Quest'' mode, is in fact one of the Goombas Mario and Luigi help be secured in a barrel while on the Koopa Cruiser.
* AscendedMeme: "I have fury!" was already Fawful's catchphrase in the original, but this game cranks it up a notch by ''Minion Quest'' calling his final form "Most Furious Fawful."



* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The Koopalings and most of the other minions get brainwashed by Fawful during Minion Quest. Beating them usually snaps them out of it. [[spoiler:Averted during Bowser's Castle where they're instead tricked into believing Bowletta is Bowser.]]



** In ''Minion Quest'', the order follows ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' more closely. The only difference in the order they're fought in is that Iggy and Morton switch places, but in certain orderings of playable Minions that group the Koopalings together, Iggy and Morton are in their original places.



* RecurringBoss: The Elite Trio in Minion Quest are initially fought together, then fought throughout the next few areas one by one, and finally get one more fight before the final area. Private Goomp gets a fourth fight as the first boss of the mode. Popple is also fought twice throughout the game.



** Bowser's amnesia was caused by being shot out of Tolstar's cannon in the original, but here it's caused by [[spoiler:Captain Goomba falling on his head]].

** Thanks to an in-story mixup by Bowser's Minions, the 'Invincishroom' Mario eats in Little Fungitown is clearly a Poison Mushroom. Causes a bit of a plot hole as a result, since there's still dialogue about possibly getting sick eating things from other regions.

* TacticalRockPaperScissors: In ''Minion Quest'', the minions fall into three types, Melee, Ranged, and Flying. Melee units have the advantage over ranged units. Ranged units have the advantage over flying units. And flying units have the advantage over melee units.



* TrueCompanions: Captain Goomba, Captain Shy Guy, and Captain Boo.



* WolfpackBoss: Near the end of Minion Quest, there's a five stage fight that ends in [[spoiler:fighting all seven Koopalings, led by Ludwig, at once as part of a test; obviously, you can't use the Koopalings in this fight until rematches]].

Added DiffLines:

* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: While all of the bosses originally had some relevance or foreshadowing, Trunkle can no longer be seen before his boss fight and has no extra appearances, making him this.

* CallForward:
** Private Goomp, Sergeant Guy, and Corporal Paraplonk first appeared in ''Bowser's Inside Story'' before showing up in this spinoff of the first ''M&L'' game.
** Dr. Toadley appears in this game (in place of Psycho Kamek), though he first appeared in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory''.
** Professor E Gadd mentions that he's making a [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime time machine]].
** Bowser's minions come across Starlow, who was vacationing in Gwarhar Lagoon only to be run afoul of Hermie III.
** The last area in Bowser's Minions has Fawful's robot army from ''Bowser's Inside Story''. It's also revealed that they're the ones who attacked the Castle Town at the beginning of the game.
** The concept of Fawful brainwashing minions refers to one of his main tactics in ''Bowser's Inside Story''. Also, [[spoiler:he persuades the Elite Trio to defect here, too, but Private Goomp is a bit more enthusiastic about it than the other two, and this time, they're quickly beaten back to the protagonists]].

* AnotherSideAnotherStory: ''Minion Quest'' has you playing as Bowser's minions and takes place concurrently with Mario and Luigi's adventure.



* BreakingTheFellowship: Apparently, Bowser's minions have splintered into different factions following the Koopa Cruiser incident. In particular, Private Goomp, Sergeant Guy, and Corporal Paraplonk have broken up and went separate ways, with Sergeant Guy intending to join Iggy Koopa's forces.
-->'''Sergeant Guy:''' The Trio has officially split up! Who needs friends anyway!



* FantasticRacism: A major theme in Minion Quest is how the Koopalings look down on Goombas; part of Captain Goomba's motivations is to prove that he can be a good leader and a capable fighter. This leads to [[spoiler:Ludwig, shortly after joining, suspecting that Captain Goomba didn't get as far as he did out of loyalty and determination, but rather relying on the Koopalings he recruited. This leads to Ludwig deciding to test him by having him fight all of the Koopalings at once. Upon losing, he and Roy start seriously reconsidering their stance]].
* ImmuneToMindControl: The flag Goomba commander you play as in ''Bowser's Minions'' is unaffected by Fawful's brainwashing gas, avoiding BrainwashedAndCrazy and thus setting out to free the rest from the mind control. The Koopalings, while not immune, have heavy resistance to it, which Fawful prepared for by making a stronger variant. [[spoiler:By the end of the game, everyone is immune, with the Koopalings easily spinning the gas away when Fawful sprays them]].



* TheRival: Private Goomp maintains a rivalry with Captain Goomba for most of the game. It's part of the reason why [[spoiler:he leads the Trio in defecting to Fawful while at Joke's End]].



* TrickBoss: Twice in ''Minion Quest'':
** Joke's End proceeds normally until Roy's defeat, which is when he reveals that [[spoiler:the Elite Trio defected and placed a bomb on the Koopa Cruiser. The actual boss fight is against the Trio]].
** In the final area, [[spoiler:after beating Lemmy and Ludwig, they join for one fight before Ludwig, who can't comprehend how a Goomba did all that he did, tests Captain Goomba by having him fight all seven Koopalings at once]].

** The Donkey Kong-looking skeleton from the barrel mini-game is replaced with a skeleton what looks more like the rest of the S.S. Chuckola's crew.


Added DiffLines:

* YouDontLookLikeYou:
** Bink, originally a Donkey Kong-looking skeleton, now looks identical to the rest of the S.S. Chuckola's crew.
** Inverted with the Koopa Troop, who now look closer to the way they do in most other ''Mario'' games.
