* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The fanbase was pretty hyped for the original ''New Super Mario Bros.'', as it was the 2D Mario revival they had been clamouring for, and it got massive critical and commercial success upon release. It also helped revive 2D platformers on consoles. Not long after the release of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, [[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4 other]] [[VideoGame/RaymanOrigins titles]] [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountryReturns followed]]. Now, with new ''[=NSMB=]'' games having been released on a fairly regular basis, some fans have grown to view the sub-series as a pointless, boring series of rehashes, and often compare it unfavourably with other ''Mario'' titles.

* ContestedSequel: [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros To]] [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels the]] [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 original]] [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 Super Mario Bros.]] [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld games]]. It didn't get this reaction too bad until Nintendo announced a third and fourth game to be released in the same year. Many people began to deride Nintendo for over-relying on the sub-series, if not ''Mario'' as a whole, derisively being compared to the oversaturation of the ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' series. For reference, VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros launched in 2006, and in less than a decade has now accumulated more installments and DLC than series that have been around since the N64 era, like PaperMario or SuperSmashBros. Though it hasn't stopped each game from being a commercial success, and while the critical reception has remained positive, fan reactions have been more polarized.

* CashCowFranchise: It should be a given since it's ''Mario'', but what's telling is that every platform that a NSMB game has been released on, it's outsold it's 3D Mario Platformer counterpart.

* DuelingGames: VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosWii to VideoGame/RaymanOrigins (and to a lesser extent, VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4) and VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBrosU to VideoGame/RaymanLegends.
* GameBreaker: The Fire Flower from the original game is not only easier to master than every other power-up, it's also far more common! Oh, it can tear right through most bosses.

** MissionPackSequel: It hasn't gone unnoticed that the games have a habit of not just [[CallBack reusing assets from past Mario games]], but reusing the same assets from each other. [[GenreSavvy Savvy players]] will notice that even [[CutandPasteComic the covers themselves]] [[CutandPasteComic tend to reuse slightly altered artwork]].
