* BestBossEver: In a game with tons of fun boss battles (including the [[AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever Giant Bowser]] ones), the FinalBoss fights against [[EvilKnockoff Dark Bowser]] and [[BigBad Fawful]] as the [[OneWingedAngel Dark Star Core]] are absolutely amazing, especially with the [[SelfImposedChallenge Challenge Medal.]] After an awesome pre-final battle cutscene and some amazing build-up, the final battle itself is divided between both Bowsers' duel, with an epic background, some awesome and hard to dodge attacks (including ''summoning an entire EvilKnockoff of Bowser's army''), and the "Vacuum battle" after "beating" him. Then comes Mario and Luigi's battle against the Dark Star Core, a very unique kind of SequentialBoss mixed with ShieldedCoreBoss and TimeLimitBoss (as you have to destroy its eyes and tentacles to damage the core, and if you don't beat him in a few turns, he'll recover and escape, forcing you to fight Dark Bowser all over again.), with a really trippy background, hard to dodge attacks, and more. [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome All of this with one of the most epic themes in the ''entire Mario franchise'' blaring in the background, aptly titled]] [[MeaningfulName ''In The Final''.]] And then, after you ''finally'' defeat the core in a long, grueling and challenging fight, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Bowser deals five punches into Dark Bowser, and then the final blow.]] Easily the perfect finale for an amazing game, and possibly one of the greatest moments not only in the Mario RPGs, but the Mario franchise as a whole.

** The Blorbs are a disease similar to the [=H1N1=] virus that swept throughout America in June 2009, three months before the game's release.

* ToughActToFollow: ''Bowser's Inside Story'' is considered one of the best [=RPGs=] in the franchise for its hilarious yet engaging plot and its gameplay striking a balance between simplicity and intricacy. Its reception even rivals ''Superstar Saga'' and ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. Many fans agree that ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiDreamTeam Dream Team]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam Paper Jam]]'' don't measure up as sequels for various reasons.

** Peach's Castle, but of the more 'unnerving' flavor. After Bowser Castle, you might expect Fawful's takeover to be relatively lighthearted. But once you pass the Dark Star blockade, you find [[spoiler:that the castle's been completely overrun with Fawful's {{Elite Mook}}s, not a friendly face in sight (other than the three Paratroopas), with several of the enemies on the inside having been tainted with the Dark Star's power.]] And the courtyard even has this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-nQQkX_-x8 eerie music]].

** The FinalBoss of the game is [[spoiler:Dark Bowser, who is Bowser's EvilKnockoff.]] Six years later, in ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'', [[spoiler:the penultimate boss of Dededetour is Shadow Dedede, who is King Dedede's EvilKnockoff.]] Needless to say, the two can relate so well.

* BrokenBase: Fans have mixed opinions over "Tough Guy Alert!", the regular boss theme. Some people enjoy it for being peppy and energetic, while others find it ''too'' cheerful, often citing SoundtrackDissonance for the more pivotal bosses such as [[spoiler:the Dark Star and Dark Fawful]], and claim that the later boss themes in ''Dream Team'' and ''Paper Jam'' do a better job of alternating between fun and tension, on top of having at least a different boss theme for the penultimate boss (Antasma in ''Dream Team'' and both Bowsers in ''Paper Jam'').
