!!YMMV tropes from the [[VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld video game]]:
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Does Mario callously let Yoshi fall into the pit just so he could get a higher jump? Or is Yoshi throwing Mario off him, providing a HeroicSacrifice?
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Yoshi, the biggest BreakoutCharacter aside form Luigi. His popularity led to him going from simply being a power-up to being an entire species and on of the iconic characters of the entire franchise.
** Chargin' Chucks, who only appeared in this game and ''Yoshi's Safari'', but eventually proved popular enough to finally make a reappearance in ''SuperMario3DWorld''.
* FanNickname: You can tell if someone's a fan of LetsPlay/{{Raocow}} by if they refer to Chargin' Chucks as "Charlies" and Yoshi as "[[ButtMonkey Stupid Horse.]]"
* FandomBerserkButton: This game IS ''Super Mario Bros. 4'', so don't ask Nintendo to make one. Got it?
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: Quite a few of the end-of-world cutscenes, but two stand out.
** For Castle #4 (Ludwig's Castle), after Mario presses the plunger, the castle takes off like a rocket, and a confused Mario watches as it soars into the air and impacts in a nearby hillside - which wears a bandage for the rest of the game.
** For Castle #5 (Roy's Castle), when Mario presses the plunger, the explosives don't go off, so he goes over to inspect them... and they blow up in his face.
* GameBreaker: If you have the cape, you can fly over most levels. The same goes for the blue Yoshi, which can fly after eating any Koopa. Even worse, if you have a cape and a blue Yoshi (or any Yoshi and a blue shell), you can fly for a very long time without even having to mash the button.
** The brokenness of the Cape extends to slowing down Mario's midair descent even more than either of the flight oriented suits in ''Mario 3'', making landings a cinch, and its spin attack kills most enemies and blocks most projectile attacks, making Mario near-impervious for any reasonably skilled player.
** The blue Yoshi is broken to the point that, combined with the cape and a few timed jumps, it absolutely trivializes [[ThatOneLevel Tubular]].
* GoodBadBugs:
** The Wiggler glitch in Forest of Illusion 1 makes ScoringPoints ridiculously easy in the SNES version. (On the other hand, the points {{Cap}} is significantly lower, as there's 1 less digit allocated to the score display.)
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_K7KXEortg Ludicrous Speed]] glitch could be considered this.
* HellIsThatNoise: Despite being supposed to be the SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound, the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJGgpzp_lVw Keyhole sound]] effect is this instead. [[NightmareFuel Don't deny it.]] That's why the GameBoyAdvance UpdatedRerelease [[AuthorsSavingThrow toned it down.]]
* MagnumOpus: Miyamoto has gone on record saying that ''Mario World'' is his favorite Mario game, although he contradicted that in a [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/06/15/this-is-shigeru-miyamotos-favorite-mario-game later interview.]]
* MemeticMutation:
** Super Mario Western by {{Hyadain}}, a lyrical remix of World 1's theme featuring decidedly {{Gonk}} and [[DirtyOldMan skeevy]] depictions of Bowser and Mario, is often used to depict love triangles - love quadrangles if one counts poor [[HopelessSuitor Luigi]], who's depicted as being a relative {{Bishonen}}.
** Throughout the game, Mario performs various methods of destroying castles after defeating the resident Koopaling. This has led to the "Mario's Castle Calamity" meme, wherein Mario tries to demolish a NighInvulnerable castle with methods that always blow up in his face.
* MostWonderfulSound: While it's obviously a matter of taste, due to the naysayers above, some people quite like the wonderfully dramatic, musical sting of the keyhole exits. Also, the pronounced stomping sound of jumping on a Chargin' Chuck is so recognizable that it was brought back for their return in Super Mario 3D World.
** The sound the springs and note blocks make. BREE-E-E-E-E-E!!
* NightmareFuel: The autumn koopa sprites invoke this. The autumn theme altogether may even qualify, since everything is dying.
** Mario's death animation, which features his eyes becoming red.
** The koopalings who are defeated by falling into lava. They let out a screech of agony as they presumably [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath burn to death]].
* SnarkBait:
** In the SNES vs. Mega Drive/Genesis ConsoleWars, it was this game that received the full force of Sega's bile for being the direct competitor to the ''SonicTheHedgehog'' series, and was constantly lambasted in all Sonic media (sometimes via LawyerFriendlyCameo) for being 'slow', 'boring', 'old-fashioned', 'childish', etc. etc.
** It extended to some of the other systems as well. One commercial for the Turbo-Graphix 16 starts with "The passive type plays Nintendo" with ''Super Mario World'' shown (hilariously, the next part says "The aggressive type plays Sega" with a clip from ''Sonic the Hedgehog'' playing).
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: A very minor variation. A theme in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqFtW92WUaI Castle BGM]] appears to be derived from one of the later sections of ''Music/ToccataAndFugueInDMinor''.
* ThatOneLevel: [[BrutalBonusLevel Special World]] is full of them.
** Tubular (level 2) is a notorious example. The entire stage is basically making it across a giant pit with the P-Balloon Power-Up, except you need to actually stop and hit certain blocks to find more balloons, or else you're not gonna make it in time. On top of that, thanks to this, you're basically a OneHitPointWonder, and you have to make it through fairly difficult attack patterns to hit said blocks. (Unless you can pull off the P-Balloon glitch (holding left and right at the same time, which is easy for [=ROMs=] but damn near impossible for an SNES D-Pad), which makes the level easy as cake.)
** Awesome (level 4) is no slouch, either. A run across a [[SlippySlideyIceWorld slippery ice world]] with kicker Koopas sending shells at you every step of the way, followed by a platforming sequence over equally slippy narrow platforms with Banzai Bills, infinite flying fish, and finally a jump boost off a flying Koopa to another slippery platform to jump a decent distance to the exit pipe.
** Outrageous (level 7) is a course that definitely lives up to its name, as Mario must run a relentless gauntlet of Wigglers, Amazing Flying Hammer Brothers, Jumping Piranha Plants, Bullet Bill cannons, pipes that require springboards to jump over (said springboards needing to be carried across several screens), and various other hazards.
* VindicatedByHistory: As mentioned under SnarkBait, this game was the target of bile due to its competition with ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'', and, while it was a big seller and well-liked, it was widely seen as just another ''Mario'' game. Nowadays, it's a contender for best game in the series and one of the best games of all time.
* {{Woolseyism}}:
** The flavor text that appears after Mario defeats a Koopaling was originally uniform and didn't even list the specific Koopaling by name. Their names being mentioned as well as implied character traits (Wendy apparently liking to sing, Ludwig doing symphonies, and Iggy being demented) were added in by the localizers.
** Notably averted with the Koopalings' names. ''Super Mario World'' is the first game to give the Koopalings names in the Japanese version, and the names adopted were the same one as the ones the games English localization created. Even then, the player has to stick around to the end of the end credits just to find them.

!!YMMV tropes from the [[WesternAnimation/SuperMarioWorld TV series]]:

* {{Anvilicious}}: The nutrition lesson in "King Scoopa Koopa" isn't carried out discreetly, particularly when Mario orders the cave people to eat their vegetables.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: In "Party Line", a gigantic dinosaur appears from out of nowhere, threatening to eat the Mario Bros., Yoshi and Princess.
* BizarroEpisode: "Fire Sale", which almost looked more like an episode from [[WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3 the previous cartoon]].
%%* CultClassic
* EarWorm:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctvW3eBcSqg Super Mario, Super Mario, Super Mario! [deep voice] World.]]"
** Kootie Pie's [[TheVillainSucksSong Villain Sucks Song]] is also catchy.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: "A Little Learning": Sorry, Princess, some people are just born evil, and can't be changed by any show of compassion, so don't even try integrating them into society!
* FountainOfMemes: The entire series, "Mama Luigi" in particular.
* FridgeHorror:
** "King Scoopa Koopa": What King Koopa could have done to the cavepeople, Luigi and Yoshi after they mutated into Chickadactyls (make them his mooks, turn them into food, eat them himself, etc.). Luigi also provides some when he tells Mario it's a good thing he doesn't like eggs.
** In "The Night Before Cave Christmas", Oogtar opens Bully's present, a Bob-omb. Before it explodes, Koopa frantically tells it not to go off until Christmas morning. What was Koopa really planning to do to Bully with that present?
** Hip's volcano in "A Little Learning". The Mario Bros. turn the pipes around but how much of Dome City or Dinosaur Land could the lava that already spewed out have destroyed?
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: "Rock TV", likely a TakeThat to the FCC enacting the Children's Television Act, became this after the cancellation of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' and all other Saturday morning cartoons on Creator/{{NBC}} a year later.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Again, "Rock TV", which has the parts where Mario and Luigi wrestle. [[Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow Mario was originally voiced by a pro wrestler.]]
** During Koopa's flashback in in that same episode, there is a ''WheelOfFortune'' puzzle that is three letters in length (DUH). One year after this episode aired, the actual show would begin using three-letter puzzles in the Bonus Round.
* IdiotPlot: "Fire Sale", "Send in the Clown" and "Ghosts 'R' Us".
* MemeticMutation: The entirety of the "Mama Luigi" episode, particularly "That's ''Mama'' Luigi to you, Mario! *wheeze*" Other notable quotes include: "Well, it's like they say in Brooklyn: Early to bed, early to catch the worm. Or, is it the bagel?", "Mario, wherever you are, '''[[LargeHam HHEEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPP]]'''!!!", and "Luigi, King Koopa has the princess locked up in his Coney Island Disco Palace!"
** From "The Yoshi Shuffle": "It's a ''stone'', Luigi; you didn't make it!"
*** "It's a football! I chiseled it!"
** "Fireballs! Yum!"
** "This is a '''vol-cay-no!'''"
** ''"ItsAllMyFault!!!"'' (Not the TropeNamer, but close enough.)
** [[BigEater Oogtar eat Ghosts for breakfast.]] [[ExtremeOmnivore (among other things...)]]
** "A magic balloon!"
** "I found myself face to face with a ''Fiiiiire Sumo''!"
** "Mama? MAMA LUIGI! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
* {{Mondegreen}}: "Oogtar promise be good caveboy for rest of life!" is usually quoted as "gay boy" due to this and the below trope.
* ReplacementScrappy: Oogtar, who replaced Toad.
%%* SoBadItsGood
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Once again, each episode contains a musical montage. Except this time, they used this from the start rather than using a cover song. For example, "Ghosts R' Us" uses a knockoff of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jackson%27s_Thriller Thriller]], "Born to Ride" uses one of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Born_to_Be_Wild Born to be Wild]], etc.
* WhatAnIdiot: See [[WhatAnIdiot/SuperMarioBros this page.]]
* XMeetsY: Modern ''VideoGames/SuperMarioBros'' mixed with stone-age ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.
