** The first battle against Magnus von Grapple has an interesting audience composition; the left side of the audience is full of Punies, while the right side is full of X-Nauts, as if the Punies are cheering on Mario and company, while the X-Nauts are cheering on their boss, Lord Crump.



* RealityEnsues: Flavio spent his time pre-Chapter 5 bragging about being the richest man in Rogueport. After the events of Chapter 5, he admits he's now the '''second'''-richest man in Rogueport. That expedition cost money to set up and not having gained any treasure to make up for it obviously hurt his finances. Flavio doesn't seem to mind, having gained the adventure he sought in the first place.

* SelfImposedChallenge: It is technically possible to defeat Bonetail before you challenge Hooktail, the first boss with a crystal star. However you will find yourself doing the Pit of 100 trials many times before you can end up facing him. It is extremely difficult but it is possible.

Crystal Star, though you do have to visit Hooktail's castle first (as the only way to get to the Pit requires an ability you get at the castle, and ''only'' there). However you will find yourself doing the Pit of 100 trials Trials many times before you can end up facing him. It is extremely difficult but it is possible.



* ShooOutTheClowns: After Lord Crump's defeat, the story starts to become nightmarish and disturbing.

** On the [[spoiler:moon base]], it's revealed that X-Naut is pronounced [[TicTacToe Cross Naut]], which in turn means that TEC-XX becomes [[HeelFaceTurn TEC-Double Cross]].

Added DiffLines:

** Cleftor often injects "Grack!" into his statements if Mario talks to him.

** Finding General White in Chapter 7. You need to backtrack to most major chapter locations out of order, talk to certain characters, and head back to Fahr Outpost. The townsperson you need to talk to can be either a major NPC (the bartender in Glitzville) or a minor one (a Twilight Towner in an innocuous corner), and their hints are designed with the idea you're ''expecting'' a run-around beforehand.

The last hint doesn't even give you a location, just the hint "he said he was tired" which the player is supposed to read as "he returned to his home in Fahr Outpost." Notably, there's nothing in the game prior to this point to notify you the house he's in has anything to do with General White.

* PopQuiz: A Thwomp in the game's introduction area pops up to ask you some basic questions. Near the end of the same area he returns for Round 2, this time in a cybernetic version.
** TEC tries to get some expression from Peach by using a pop quiz of his own.

* ContinuityNod: At the beginning of the game, Parakarry from the first ''PaperMario'' game delivers a letter to the Mario Bros. In the [[PlayableEpilogue post-game]], you can meet another of your party members from ''VideoGame/PaperMario64''. There would've been more than just the two, but they were DummiedOut. Jr. Troopa can also be seen in the background of a picture attached to e-mail sent to Mario by Zip Toad. Also, in Hooktail's castle, the note written by a dead Koopa is addressed to his son Kolorado, an NPC in the first game.

** Finding the [[BonusBoss Atomic Boo]]. [[spoiler:Remember the church full of Boos clinging to you and [[MookBouncer sending you back to the entrance]]? You can send them flying with a SpinAttack. Do so until the boss shows up. To the game's credit, is ''tries'' to give to you a clue -- notice how the Boos are ''spinning'' as they crowd you.]]

** One of the badges you can buy from Charlieton is named "Jumpman". Its brother, "Hammerman" riffs on the idea, but is valid in the same right (picking up the Hammer in ''Donkey Kong'' denied you the ability to jump).

** Everytime the Magical Map is presented to the Thousand Year Door, it provides Mario with directions to the next Crystal Star. It almost wouldn't qualify for this trope, except that it bestows the Sweet Treat ability on Mario.
