PlotIrrelevantVillain: Hooktail and Grubba. Hooktail's brothers are connected to the plot, but she herself is not, while Grubba is using a Crystal Star to stay youthful but is overwise divorced from the plot.

* AdaptationDecay: InUniverse. The ''Super Luigi'' books novelize Luigi's (mis)adventures in the Waffle Kingdom, but they also change a huge number of details to make Luigi look more heroic than he actually was. Among other things, they claim he played "a purifying earth spirit" in the Jazzafrazz Town play, when he was actually an inanimate patch of grass on the side of the road (but the town was full of Dayzees who idolized nature, and thus he was hailed by them). The end result is that the entire series is largely full of lies that is only loosely based off of the truth, [[spoiler: except for the ending]].

** Though Prince Mush says he's ready to get back into the ring following Chapter 3, his BonusBoss fight was DummiedOut and thus he ends up vanishing from the game entirely.

Added DiffLines:

* FlippingHelpless:
** Like the [[VideoGame/PaperMario64 previous game]], jumping on a Koopa or Buzzy Beetle will flip it on its back, rendering it helpless and dropping its defense (until it gets back up). However, the same can happen to your partner Koops.
** Simultaneously subverted and inverted with Shady Koopas, who have the same "flipped" animation and have their defense dropped, but will attack with a stronger attack while they're on their backs.

Added DiffLines:

* ISurrenderSuckers: Hooktail attempts this when she runs out of HP, and tries to bribe you with coins, badges, and smelling her feet. If you fall for it, she will attack you for massive damage. Regardless of whether you fall for it or not, she will eat members of the audience, and the battle will continue without an audience.

* ChimneyEntry: When Bobbery doesn't want to be disturbed and locks himself inside his home, Mario naturally has to climb up on the roof and roll up into a tube so that he fits in the chimney.

* JokerImmunity: [[spoiler: Grodus, Crump, and the X-Nauts survived their defeat, perhaps because they were well-received. Alas, a case of ChuckCunninghamSyndrome takes place after Goombella says "she expects no more trouble from them." They can never be seen again, and haven't ever appeared since this game.]]

* BadassGrandpa: Bobbery is an elderly Bob-omb who used to be a tough sailor. Even after coming out of retirement and joining Mario, he's still a capable combatant.
