* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: What if Dino Piranha isn't trying to attack Mario and just wanted to play with him? It isn't until Mario hits it with its tail that it becomes angry.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Rosalina, a female character in a Mario game who [[AvertedTrope averts]] DamselInDistress. How refreshing.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The 3D GravityScrew platforming that this game is well known for actually didn't originate here. Other games, such as ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}, had utilized similar game mechanics years before ''Galaxy'' was released.

* ToughActToFollow: Some people see ''Galaxy'' as the gold standard of ''Mario'' games and especially the 3D titles, to the point that it currently stands as the best-reviewed video game of all time on [=GameRankings=].[[note]]It even managed to outrank the apparently undefeatable ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''![[/note]] Since then, no ''Mario'' title (not even its own sequel, albeit very narrowly) has been able to reach the same level of universal acclaim; in particular, while subsequent 3D titles ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DLand'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' are lauded in their own right, they're widely seen as a step down from both ''Galaxy'' games.

** Rosalina herself has become this [[Main/TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter due to her recent appearances taking away her mystique from this game.]]
** The Honey Queen Bee became this as a result of being suddenly playable in VideoGame/MarioKart7.
