* ItsEasySoItSucks / ItsShortSoItSucks: For such an influential series, the fandom's pretty small, and this is usually the reason why, [[VindicatedByHistory especially by modern standards]].

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Nintendo did a lot of things here that they would probably never get away with now [[GrandfatherClause with the exception of rereleases]].
** ''Fire Attack'' was about fighting back TheSavageIndian horde who was trying to burn down your settler's fort. Oddly enough, this one got a full remake in ''Gallery 4''.
** ''Mario's Bombs Away'' has Mario (yes, ''that'' Mario) is fighting in TheVietnamWar, being fired at by actual machine guns [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking with someone visibly smoking]]. This is available as an unlockable minigame in ''Gallery 4''.
** ''Donkey Kong Circus'' is probably never going to see a rerelease, since the premise is that Mario is keeping Donkey Kong as a circus attraction, forcing him to juggle pineapples whilst dodging fireballs. Given people's views on animal enslavement, this is definitely an UnintentionalPeriodPiece. This is also a case of CharacterizationMarchesOn, as in the original ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong''[='s=] lore, Mario, or Jumpman back then, was an all-around [[DesignatedHero abusive pet owner]]; he's [[TheHero nowhere near that anymore]].

** Judge's Second Playmode (Classic Only) in ''3'' requires you to play with another person. [[UnwinnableByDesign Guess what you can't do in the Virtual Console re-release? They even dummied out the option with no way to get those stars.]]

*** Thankfully on that one you only have to load the game 5 times each in the 2P mode to get the 5 stars, and the second GBA did not require a cartridge.
