* Seeing the two Yoshis being reunited at the end of the Yoshi board in ''1''.
* Everyone celebrating the player's birthday in ''4''.
* At the end of Story Mode in ''4'', it's revealed that Bowser's goal was [[spoiler: to get in on celebrating the player's birthday like everyone else]]. Aww. Not that he'll admit it, though.
* At the end of Mario Party 5, Bowser's wish was [[spoiler: for a strong opponent]], meaning that even when you defeated him he got what he wanted.
* See the first Franchise/DonkeyKong-based entry in the series's FridgeBrilliance page.
* Arriving at a Bowser space without coins or stars (Most likely because [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard your opponents just got done stripping you clean of anything]]) causes him to take pity on you and give you some coins to get back into the game. He's still a major jerkass, but stuff like this helps us remember [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold that he does have a heart underneath it all]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk even if he's only giving you the coins so you can actually gain something of value for him to steal.]]
* The ending cutscene of ''3''. [[spoiler:The real Millennium Star allows your character to become the greatest Superstar in the universe, with the background music having that EarnYourHappyEnding feeling to it.]] This, combined with the credits and their music, also drives home the point that this is the last non-[[IncrediblyLamePun third-party]] game for the N64.
