* AbsenteeActor: Between four heroes, one BigBad and seven Koopa Kids, there were bound to be some absences. "Life's Ruff" is a special case. Most of the regulars are absent, but so is Mario himself--making for the only episode of the three shows that he didn't appear in. (Incidentally, this means Luigi is the only character to appear in every episode of every show.)
* AdaptationalBadass: Princess Toadstool, in very stark contrast to her otherwise official canon appearances up to that point, or after. "Reign Storm" ends with her surfing into the castle and taking her crown back with a harpoon gun, amongst other moments throughout all 3 seasons of the show.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Obviously it's still very much a kid's show, but the tone got a little more serious at times. Part of this is because of the way the music was arranged: Dark Land's theme sounds a lot more menacing in this cartoon than in the video game. Same goes for the airship theme. And of course, the theme music was not nearly as cheery as from ''SMBSS'' or ''Super Mario World''.

* ClumsyCopyrightCensorship: Super Mario 3 didn't suffer nearly as much in its transition to DVD as SuperMarioBrosSuperShow, though there were still a small handful of licensed songs that were removed and replaced with BGM from the series. Infamously, the episode "Kootie Pie Rocks" used the instrumental version of "Mega Move" over any lyrical songs from Milli Vanilli, [[HilariousInHindsight which resulted in the very odd visual of the two singing but no words coming out of their mouths.]]

* AllThereInTheManual: According to the writers' bible for the series, King Koopa was apparently locked up in the Banishment Zone somewhere between ''TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow'' and this, but he escaped.

* AdaptationalBadass: Princess Toadstool, in very stark contrast to her otherwise official canon appearances up to that point(one can argue that her portrayal in Super Mario 2 doesn't even count since it was a dream) or after. "Reign Storm" ends with her surfing into the castle and taking her crown back with a harpoon gun, amongst other moments throughout all 3 seasons of the show. If anything, the constant watering down of her character in Nintendo's games comes off as even worse thanks to how well she was portrayed here.
