* FanficFuel: [[spoiler: Il Piantissimo finding Bowser Jr.'s paintbrush]] at the very end of the game could lead to some very interesting ideas for a sequel...

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The flood radically alters the layout of the hub town by putting 3/4ths of it underwater. Swimming around town is pretty neat... until you realize that you can't really do anything new with this change, and there are no significant secrets to be found. Plus, the flood inexplicably goes away on its own while you're in the final level.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Poor Peach. When first we see her in the game's opening, she is the first to notice Shadow Mario running amok in Isle Delfino--twice! Once in a plane advertisement, and again at Delfino Airstrip. Because of this, she and the Toads are the only people to know for a fact that Mario is innocent. But the Piantas don't see it that way, and immediately overrule her when she tries to object on her hero's behalf. You guys know she's royalty, right? To make matters worse, just when it feels like we're going to have a grand Mario adventure WITHOUT her getting kidnapped, the first thing Shadow Mario does when he finally reveals himself is kidnap her. As a final kick in the teeth, once rescued, Peach will hang around Isle Delfino and you can even talk to her, once again making you think they're giving her a break. But no. Once you get enough Shine Sprites, she is held captive for the rest of the game, even when you start the game again after defeating Bowser for the final time. So much for a HeroOfAnotherStory.

** Pachinko Game. You are in a pinball machine-like stage, where you need to maneuver Mario to collect eight Red Coins. The difficulty comes from one single thing: the "launcher" that propels Mario into the machine makes him go so fast, it's insanely hard to get him to land where you want to. He even goes too fast for you to use FLUDD to correct any mistakes unless you somehow touch one of the openings of the machine and don't get knocked down to your doom. Even if you collect all coins, you still need to get back into the machine to actually get the Shine.

What also doesn't help is that if you skip the launcher by wall kicking up and out, you get flung to the right anyway for some undefined reason.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** Because of how exaggerated the KangarooCourt is at the beginning of the game, some believe the Piantas just saw Mario as the solution to their problems and slapped him with the court sentence to make sure he'd stay to fix them. There's also a group of Piantas in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor'' that are clearly running a crime syndicate, which does little to dissuade such interpretation.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Petey Piranha made his first appearance in this game, and would appear again in ''VideoGame/MarioKart Double Dash!!'', ''VideoGame/SuperPrincessPeach'', ''SuperSmashBros Brawl'', ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'', ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'', ''VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar'', and most of the Mario Sports titles. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' would feature "Dino-Piranha", an {{Expy}} of him.

* SoBadItsGood: Many elements of the story get this reaction. Some standouts include Peach's NeverLiveItDown moment and anything that Bowser says. The gameplay, while controversial, fares much better.
