** All though if you have 70 stars, Only Mario would have an easy access to ''Bowser in the Sky'', While Yoshi, Luigi, and Wario will still have the looping staircase. They could to a series of backward long jumps to scale the ''infinite'' staircase without any problems.

* AllOrNothing: If Mario, Luigi, Wario, or Yoshi loses a race with Koopa the Quick on ''Bo-Bomb Battlefield'' or ''Tiny Huge Island'', They would lose an extra life.

** Even before King Bob-Omb gives the idea that you have to pick up and throw him, players can discover that you can pick up and throw his bob-omb minions earlier, giving a hint on how to best him ahead of time.

* {{Retcon}}: King Boo debuted in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'', where he swore to avenge himself against the Mario Bros. for what they did to him, which was... nothing, since he hadn't appeared before. ''Super Mario 64 DS'' is now King Boo's official first canon appearance, which makes his lines in ''Luigi's Mansion'' make more sense.

* CoDragons: Goomboss, Big Boo, and Chief Chilly seem to play these roles to [[BigBad Bowser]], since they have their own levels and guard the other protagonists. In contrast to the N64 version, in which Bowser doesn't really have a [[TheDragon Dragon]].

Added DiffLines:

* ClamTrap: Clams can be found in Jolly Roger Bay, often with coins in their mouths. If Mario is in the clam when its shell shuts, he'll be knocked aside and take damage.

* RealityWarper: Stealing the Stars evidently allows Bowser to create in-painting {{Pocket Dimension}}s, set physics-altering traps in all three Star Door rooms, etc.

** A few of the staple Mario tunes make a comeback; the title theme is the original theme song for VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1. The underground theme from that game makes a return as the theme for Hazy Maze Cave and Wet Dry World. And the Cap music is an arrangement of the invincibility theme.

** The mural of the Castle Lobby is an ode to Grass Land from VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3.
** Likewise, Tiny-Huge Island is basically a 3D Giant Land from Mario 3.
** Big Boo's Haunt is based off of the Ghost Houses from VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld.
** The Cap Switches are identical in look and purpose to the Block Switches from Super Mario World as well.
** The 8 Red Coins are a carry over from VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld2YoshisIsland.
** The pillars that precede the final Bowser fight depict a battle between Mario and Bowser, using their sprites from [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1 the original Super Mario Bros.]]

* BondVillainStupidity: Toad believes Bowser forgot to seal the door leading to Bob-omb Battlefield, but as the remake proves, the Koopa King in fact left it unsealed deliberately, hoping Mario would get himself blown up, or worse. Of course, he never counted on Mario gaining new abilities since that time [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld he and his brother Luigi blew his Koopa-Copter out of the air...]]

** Since it's the first Mario 3D platformer, this was a given. The biggest difference between this game and the later 3D platformers is that while a certain amount of stars (and when you fight Bowser, the keys he holds to open the doors with the locks on them) are needed to get to certain levels, you can get any of the seven stars at just about any time, no matter what mission you pick - one can find the eight red coins and get that star, even if they picked another mission. Starting with ''SuperMarioSunshine'', whatever mission was picked had to be done, and could not be bypassed. The only exceptions are most of the bosses, such as Koopa the Quick.
