* TheScrappy: Gearmos. Two of them run the trash cleaning missions (see ThatOneLevel below) and will yell at you every time you run out of time. They also appear at the end of the Purple Coin challenges for the Battlerock and Dreadnought Galaxies to chide you if you don't get enough purple coins before reaching them, followed by you losing a life afterwards.

* MagnumOpus: Widely considered one of the greatest Mario games of all time, if not ''the'' greatest. ''Galaxy'' pulled off the seemingly impossible feat of being ranked higher than ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' on [=GameRankings=], making it the best-reviewed game of all time on the site.

* NauseaFuel: With the gravity and camera angles (you often appear sideways or upside-down), it can get a bit disorienting.

** Pull Stars seem to have been conceived just to torture people. It reaches its most irritating during the purple coin mission at Ghostly Galaxy, where one must pull themselves past mines and collect coins within an ungodly strict timeline.

** Pull Stars seem to have been conceived just to torture people. It reaches its most irritating during the purple coin mission at Ghostly Galaxy, where one must pull themselves past mines and collect coins within an ungodly strict timeline. "Topman Tribe Speed Run" is almost as bad: in one section you have to navigate through a corridor lined by cannons, and if you get hit by a cannonball [[CycleOfHurting it is hard to avoid getting hit multiple times while recovering]], but that's not the hard part, since it's easy to figure out the proper timing. The hard part is the end of the section, as the pull stars are too far away from the star that warps you to the next section to reach it, even if you drift, and the only way to get over there is to build up enough angular momentum using the last three pull stars, one of which is off the screen half the time. Even then, there is no guarantee that Mario will be pulled in the right direction, making it a LuckBasedMission. It isn't near as bad on the normal run, since you can take your time, but with the Speedy Comet, if you don't make it on your first or second try, you will run out of time. The Pull Stars are the only part of the level that is all difficult, but most infuriating, if you fail at any point, you have to start the whole level over again, since Prankster Comets remove stage checkpoints.

* CatharsisFactor: Flinging Koopa shells at chests, crystals, and enemies feels great. Nintendo seemed to get that, and gave us [[AwesomeBosses/SuperMarioBros two bosses to defeat by throwing shells!]]
