* AntiFrustrationFeatures: There are 1-up Mushrooms scattered around the observatory, and more will appear when you unlock new domes, up to a total of 5. They will even respawn if you enter and exit a dome. Combined with an additional five 1-ups you receive from Peach's letter (or in Luigi's case, ''[[UpToEleven 20]]''), you should be really well prepared to face the toughest challenges ahead without worrying about a Game Over so much.
** In Honeyhive Galaxy, if you "somehow" manage to fall off the tree platform in the first mission or the windmill tower in the second mission, then Launch Stars will appear back down on the mainland to take you back up there. Saving you a lot of trouble of having to go all the way back through the long default route.

* {{Expy}}: Cosmic Mario, a ''Galaxy'' stand-in for ''Sunshine's'' Shadow Mario. But this time, you're not chasing him -- you're ''racing'' him.

* MilesGloriosus: The self-appointed leader of the Toad Brigade. One of the other Toads {{lampshade|Hanging}}s this. In the [[spoiler:Grand Finale Galaxy]], upon learning that the captain is [[spoiler:being promoted to Royal Guard Commander]], one Toad says "But the leader is the least brave of all!"

* NoDamageRun: The daredevil comets force you to complete a challenge without taking any damage. Usually it's redoing a boss fight, but one of the more sadistic ones--"Lava Spire Daredevil Run" in Melty Molten Galaxy--forces you to replay an entire level like this, namely, the "The Sinking Lava Spire" mission. (This is probably because a daredevil run against [[ThatOneBoss Fiery Dino Piranha]] would be [[NintendoHard even more sadistic]] than that.) There's also the second segment of "Scaling the Sticky Wall" in Honeyclimb Galaxy, when meteors can, in a single hit, rob you of your bee suit, and send you falling to your death by black hole.

* WhatOtherGalaxies: Super Mario Galaxy seems to avert this, but it is an [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] example. Rosalina claims Earth's sun is the center of the ''whole universe'', conflating the Universe not with a galaxy, but with one solar system!

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: In both the original and the sequel, Mario is this compared to Luigi. His weaker jumps make extreme feats harder to perform, but they are still always sufficient to complete the level, and his higher traction makes him easier to control and reduces the risk of accidentally falling to your death.


Added DiffLines:

* DifficultButAwesome: In both the original and the sequel, Luigi is this compared to Mario. His lower traction makes him more difficult for the player to control, but he also runs faster and jumps higher/further, making him capable of crazy feats such as going into orbit around a small planetoid using only a long jump, or using his superior jumping to SequenceBreak past part of a platforming sequence.
