** Once you get your hands on a Statue Leaf, you possess the power to destroy most of the game's seemingly indestructible obstacles by [[StoneWall letting them collide into you after transforming]]. Spiked balls? Gone. Spiked rollers? Scrap metal. Banzai Bills? They explode, leaving you unscathed. You can even go on the offensive with this by jumping over your obstacle in question [[AnvilOnHead and then transforming]]. To hammer home how broken the statue form really is, go to World 3's airship with the Statue Leaf. Stand in front of one of the gigantic spiked pillars, turn into a statue, and let it ram into you. Now hold on to your WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief as you witness [[spoiler:the pillar ''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics stopping]]'' '''''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics dead]]''''' ''[[ArtisticLicensePhysics in its tracks, colliding with your stone body, while you don't even budge an inch.]]'']]

** Nintendo has been pretty good with recent Mario games on setting aside special areas you can repeatedly visit just for power-ups to help with replayability... Except this game. Once you unpack an item from any of the Toad Houses and leave, it's gone for good. Nothing will bring the houses back except getting a GameOver, and you'll be hard pressed to encounter one with the plethora of 1-Ups the game gives you. You can also nab power-ups from stages, but if you want to leave the stage with the power-ups in question, you ''have'' to complete the level, as exiting the course does not save your progress. You can replenish the Toad Houses through [=StreetPass=] tags, but if you don't live in a big city, that may be easier said than done.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: '''Tanooki Bowser'''. A lot of fans really wanted to see [[http://masabowser.deviantart.com/art/True-Tanooki-Bowser-image-280973465 this powered-up incarnation of Bowser]]. Many gamers were also half-expecting it, on an erroneous assumption that the Fake Bowsers' tails were {{Foreshadowing}}. It's not until ''[[VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld 3D World]] that Bowser considers using Mario's arsenal, and even then the Tanooki ability is still strangely snubbed by the game designers.

* FridgeBrilliance: The letter you receive after clearing World 4 shows Peach being ambushed by Goombas. The letter trying to fly out of Mario's reach wasn't being mischievous, it doesn't want Mario to see that.

* InternetBackdraft: Not towards the developers or reviewers, but towards [=PETA=], who attacked the game on the grounds that the Tanooki Suit promotes wearing fur. (They even made a parody flash game, ''Mario Kills Tanooki''.) After realizing how much of a hornet's nest they stirred, they tried to claim a JustJokingJustification, but not everyone's buying it.
** Music/{{Brentalfloss}} put it best in his "[=RANTAlfloss=]" about ''MKT'', after showing how Mario gets his suit in ''3D Land'', and ''then'' asking PETA if they saw Mario skinning a raccoon alive.
---> '''Brentalfloss:''' ''[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments "No! It's a MAGICAL... FUCKING... LEAF!"]]''
** Even WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic responded by making a reference to the PETA controversy in the game... in a review of the 2000 version of ''Film/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'', as a TakeThat to [=PETA=]:
----> '''The Nostalgia Critic:''' ''[about Max]'' What the hell would [=PETA=] say for this little canine? Oh hell, as long as he's not wearing a Tanooki Suit, it's fine.
** The whole thing is pretty much par for the course when it comes to [=PETA=]. They live and die by the credo that there is NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: A common criticism of the game; while its level design and innovative use of 3D are praised, it's also seen as taking a step backward from the lauded ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' games to return to the basic ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'' formula, with a thin ExcusePlot and an overall very simplistic structure.

** It's not the first time Mario gets to see [[spoiler: Peach getting kidnapped right before his eyes]], but this is the only time this hit him... ''[[HeroicBSOD hard]]''. To clarify, at the end of that level ([[spoiler:World 8, first Bowser castle]]), Mario ''doesn't even do his happy dance.'' Though he did seem more determined than shell shocked, meaning he's about to [[LetsGetDangerous get dangerous]].

* BreatherLevel: An unintentional example. In [[spoiler: 7-1]], if you have the Tanooki power up, you can get to the end of the level by jumping against the wall to your left after you jump from the ledge, then flutter your way over the fence to the flagpole.
