** Any reasonably deep body of water in the game, be it the lake of Jolly Roger Bay or the small oasis in Shifting Sand Land, will quickly refill your health if Mario jumps in and stays at the surface. Coins, which are extremely plentiful, will also refill your health, as do the occasional floating heart, which refills your health if you run through it quickly enough.

* BossArenaUrgency: In the final battle with Bowser, after you score two hits on him, he smashes the platform, turning it into a smaller star-shaped one. Before this point, flinging him off the platform but missing the bombs around the edge will result in Bowser simply leaping back up, which can knock off one of the pieces that would otherwise fall after the two hits.

** Whomp's Fortress, an otherwise straightforward level, has a very well hidden star that, unless you're aware of it ahead of time, can only be found by trial and error. It's hidden in a breakable piece at the tip of a thin brick wall that you have to launch Mario into via cannon--and it looks no different than any other piece of scenery in the level. While the name of the stars goal is "Blast Away the Wall", finding out ''which'' wall to blast at, and which specific part, is completely left to the player to find out.

* BettingMiniGame: Most of Luigi's mini games, which are mainly based around casino games, are this.
* BonusFeatureFailure: Except it's even worse than the original in this regard. Because Yoshi has been upgraded to a playable character, there's nobody to greet you on top of the roof and give you the 100 lives and upgraded triple jump like in the N64 version. The only point of interest is the last of Luigi's rabbits, which doesn't even give you more than a virtually identical version of a minigame you've already most definitely unlocked by this point.
