* BizarroEpisode: Mario flies a plane, pilots a submarine and thats before mentioning the enemy lineup. Koopa Troopas that ''explode'', running stone heads, flying stone heads, hopping vampires, octopi, seahorses. No Luigi. No Bowser. No Mushroom Kingdom. Definitely a very strange Mario title, and no game has ever come close to being so weird and different since.

** There is a theory that the player character isn't Mario, but actually ''Luigi masquerading as Mario''. This either shows how desperate Luigi is for attention, or heartwarming, as it turns Luigi and Daisy's relationship into a RescueRomance.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: {{Fanon}} says that Tatanga was merely hired by Wario to kidnap Daisy, such that when Mario goes to Sarasaland to save her, [[VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2SixGoldenCoins Wario could enter Mario's castle and take over his country]]. The instruction manual for "Six Golden Coins" does indeed say that Wario took over Mario Land during the events of the first game, but does not say whether Tatanga was working under his hire. However, Tatanga reappears in ''[=SML2=]'', guarding one of the titular Golden Coins for Wario, lending credence to the theory.

* AwesomeMusic: Despite being a really short game compared to the series' other games, it had really great music.

* VindicatedByHistory: This game, along with [[VideoGame/SuperMarioLand26GoldenCoins its sequel]], were acclaimed and sold well in their day, but fell into CanonDiscontinuity due to their non-contemporary settings and being overall [[OddballInTheSeries weird]] games that also lacked the involvement of series mastermind Creator/ShigeruMiyamoto. In 2015, when Nintendo celebrated the 30th anniversary of ''Super Mario Bros'', ''Super Mario Land'' and its sequel, were included among the more iconic traditional games in the timeline. Fans have also become more appreciative of both games' creativity, atypical plotlines and settings, while still staying true (for the most part) to the traditional fun gameplay of the franchise.
