* GoddamnedBoss: The fight with [[BigBad Fawful]] without a doubt. He's not a particularly hard boss, but only 2 of his attacks will let you hurt him, one of which qualifies for ThatOneAttack. As a bonus, whatever damage you do will be healed almost immediately by his vacuum helmet. What you're ''supposed'' to do is wait for the helmet to detach from Fawful and inhale it so Mario and Luigi can destroy it. The problem is that Fawful will take his sweet time before it happens. And when you finally get down to fighting the helmet, it just ''loves'' to steal your special attacks. It also enjoys stealing your items so you can't replenish your SP. Be prepared to wait for absurd amounts of time for the fight to go anywhere.

*** Edges into FridgeBrilliance when you note that she was doing it along with the star based buddy of the game. She was just doing her standard 'end of game final boss wish power' she does very often but there was nothing to stop her from doing it right away.



* HarsherInHindsight: Keep in mind Fawful was underground during the events of the last game, so it's not that tricky to figure out how he discovered the existence of the Dark Star.

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: ''Bowser's Inside Story'' addressed complaints regarding ''Partners In Time'', like changing special attacks back to the original system, making the controls less complicated, and adding the overworld back in, and did some other things like making Bowser a playable character and Fawful the main villain. It's largely regarded as the best game in the series, and became the best-reviewed and best-selling RPG in the ''Mario'' franchise.

* FetishFuel: Tons.
** The Blorbs, a disease that causes Toads to swell up to immense proportions.
** Luigi's Snack Basket move which involves stuffing him until he gains enough weight to crush his foes.
** After defeating Midbus, Bowser is treated to a victory feast where he becomes so fat he falls through the floor and becomes stuck. You can revisit the scene later in the game although there is no need to.

** The Mario & Luigi fight between Memory M & Memory L. What makes these two bosses hard as that they seem to copy the Mario Bros.' statistics: Mario is more powerful, and Luigi has more HP. Mario's two attacks are quite frequent: one of them has him get a Super Star and become invincible, ramming through the Bros. (on some occasions, a coin will pop up and Memory M will follow it). His other attack is growing huge and breaking bricks so that the Mario Bros. have to break the remaining parts fully. Memory L's attacks appear less often but are scarier than Memory M's: One of them is throwing a hammer in the sky so that one of the Mario Bros. have to whack it back; the other one likely requires the most timing, as Memory L will get pursued by a Memory Boo: he'll jump over the players, but the Memory Boo won't. You want to know what's worse? If you defeat Memory M first, Memory L will simply revive him (thankfully only a little bit of HP, though). Because of this, you may think to defeat Memory L first so that he can't revive Memory M when defeated - but Memory L is just a coward as Luigi, and will often run off the battle screen, and will likely not return until Memory M if defeated. Get ready for the pain.

* BestBossEver: In a game with tons of fun boss battles (including the [[AttackOfTheGiantFiftyFootWhatever 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 ''The Grand Finale''.]] 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.

** Not many people like the way you have to blow into the DS's mic in order to breath fire during the Giant Bowser parts. This is especially frustrating in the battle against the Fawful Express, as this is the only attack you can do to hurt it since the train is too low to punch.

* 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.

** The Magic Window for the Brothers. Its damage would potentially be infinite if not for that pesky thing called "human reaction time," as the bros constantly speed up as the attack keeps going. Still, it can rack up more hits than any other move in the Bros' arsenal before its speed ramps up too much.

** As far as gear combinations are concerned, DX SP Socks and a Budget Charm on Mario gives you incredible special move usability, and the Delicious Gloves (Healing items are twice as effective) mean your opponent better kill you in one turn, or SUPER NUT! For Bowser, the Hunter Band is effectively a vampiric power-boosting item which can give up to a ''30%'' attack bonus. It's pretty terrible against bosses, though.
