* DuelingGames: Everyone knows about the Mario-Sonic rivalry as the main front of the Nintendo-Sega UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars, but it was this game dueling with ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' that was the focus.
* FanNickname:
** LetsPlay/{{Raocow}} has called Charging Chuck and Yoshi "Football Charlie" and "Stupid Horse", respectively.
** {{GameFAQs}}' LUE board uses the very box image of the game as its god. They also call it [=LUEshi=], instead of Yoshi. They even have their own mod, if you're wondering.
** Fans of the cartoon have called Luigi "Emo Luigi" because of him crying in "Gopher Bash".
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: NBC gave this treatment to the cartoon's entire run. Viewers relying on word-of-mouth rather than commercials just to catch a new episode was the first straw. Being produced on a smaller budget than ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'', and thus limiting the episodes to one segment in each ''Captain N'' episode, instead of two with ''3'', was the second straw. The last straw, however, came when NBC halted production of the series without any prior announcement, then canceling it and its fellow NBC cartoons altogether as part of NBC's take-down of their Saturday morning block and replacement by teen-oriented TNBC. Its time slot was then occupied by local news.
* TropeNamer: For TheYoshi (now known as PowerupMount).
** The cartoon is the TropeNamer for IFellForHours.
