The gang's all here.note 
Super Mario Logan (or SML for short) is a series of various plush and puppet videos made by SuperMarioLogan from YouTube.

The plots mainly focus around a variety of Mario characters, some other unusual choices (such as Shrek and Woody), and various original puppets. The plots are not typically episodic, although various episodes do have a running narrative. For the most part, the episodes either focus on Mario and how terrible his life is, or on Bowser Junior and the stupid antics he gets himself into.

    open/close all folders 

     A-G 
  • Abusive Parents:
    • Bowser is usually a terrible parent to his son. One example would be when, after he fails a test, Bowser beats him with a cable cord. Oddly, though, Bowser seems to change between being kind to his son and being an abusive Jerkass.
    • Charleyyy once threw his infant daughter down a staircase.
    • In the "Bowser Jr's Playtime" videos, Bowser Jr. plays a man named "Jr." (his wife played by Joseph and his daughter played by Cody), and "Jr." is an abusive workaholic who apparently sleeps with his secretary, calls his wife a whore, and beats his wife and daughter, constantly berating the both of them. Scary when one thinks this is just play-house, and most kids base such things on their home life.
    • Downplayed with Mario. After he became the Parental Substitute to Jeffy, he tried to get rid of him in "Jeffy's Special Easter!" and "Where's Jeffy?", shot him with a Nerf gun saying, "Die Jeffy!", in "Bowser Junior's Nerf War!", locked him in the bathroom and pretended not to hear him in "Jeffy's Cellphone!", and tried to kill Jeffy with the help of the Loan Dolphin in "The Hitman!". Though otherwise, he doesn't physically or emotionally abuse Jeffy anyway outside of those examples.
    • Jeffy's mother Nancy, to the point the poor child is afraid of her. In fact, the only reason she came back for him is so she can get rich, as Jeffy's father Jacques Pierre François left all of his money to Jeffy following his suicide, which Jeffy can legally get once he turns 18.
  • Accidental Art: In "Bowser Junior's Painting!", Junior accidentally drops his canvas onto his color plate in an attempt to make a $50 million painting. Joseph, Goodman and Cody redeem the result as beautiful.
  • Afraid of Needles: Junior, as revealed when he had to get a flu shot.
  • Alliterative Title: "Cool Cody!" has an alliterative title.
  • All Just a Dream:
  • Alternate Universe:
    • Shrek is addicted to cheesecake, talks about taking a crap a lot, and calls everyone Donkey.
    • Woody is addicted to beer, shrimp-o's (He even has his own series) and NASCAR.
    • Bowser doesn't particularly care about capturing the Princess, lives in a suburban home, and watches Charleyyy and Friends constantly.
    • Bowser Junior usually plays with a Thomas toy, and his intelligence takes a massive nosedive compared to his cunning canon counterpart.
    • Black Yoshi wears a necklace and spends his spare time playing Call of Duty.
    • Kirby is bisexual.
    • Sonic the Hedgehog has a British Accent and is often mistaken for a cat.
    • Chris the Cucumber is obviously Larry the Cucumber. Unlike Larry, who gives silly tips and fun advice, Chris gives completely wrong advice while claiming it's correct.
      • Chris does give a few correct tips though...in hilarious details.
    • Craig the Devil apparently owns Hell.
    • Windwaker Link is known as "Pixie Goblin", and was made in a kitchen by Chef PeePee by order of Bowser to make a new son.
    • Rosalina absolutely loses it and goes into total sobbing fits when she can't see the stars. She cries constantly about Luma being missing, and blames the sun, which she believes is a planet. This was only in her first two appearancesnote , though, as she became more of a stereotypical ditzy blonde afterwards.
    • Every single one of the Koopa Kids has a bizarre personality. They originally had fake names and there were six of them, all Bowser's kids from his ex-wife Sheila Perkins, however the remake retains their canon names and makes them the result of a cloning box that Junior bought from a homeless man and a drug-addicted clown.
      • Wendy seems to constantly correct Junior saying that he doesn't have 7 brothers and sisters, but just 1 sister and 6 brothers (which she screams).
      • Ludwig Von Koopa only knows how to say "Butt" and his own name.
      • Iggy Koopa is very shaky, and hyperactive.
      • Roy Koopa talks a lot like Birdo.
      • Larry Koopa seems to be unable to not stop saying his name repeatedly.
      • Morton Koopa Jr. repeatedly says he's a "watchdog"/"rockstar".
      • Lemmy Koopa admires Junior's toys.
    • Counterparts to existing Mario enemies and allies exist as well.
      • Cody is a Magikoopa who looks a lot like Kamek. He has a large number of medical disorders, and likes school a lot. He is also still breastfed by his mother who makes him sleep in the same room, appears to be a closet homosexual, and believes his Ken doll is real.
      • Toad is a massive idiot who runs on absolute Insane Troll Logic and happens to be a serious Chubby Chaser. And he is a rapper, too.
      • Toadette appears twice. Supposedly there are two, one who is Toad's sister (of whom Toad and Junior are romantically interested in) and she has a Brooklyn accent, another who has a higher pitch accent and isn't related to Toad, but looks identical to the other Toadette.
      • Joseph, his friend from school is a Koopa Troopa who likes to play sports and wears braces. He idolizes Kobe Bryant and other famous basketball players. And yes, according to his American Idol audition, his last name is "His Friend from School".
      • A Shy Guy appears named Tanner who believes he's a super cool dude, likes to bully others, but when he gets bullied he argues that people can't bully him because he has home life problems so it's wrong to do so.
      • A Goomba appears on and off who repeatedly states he has no arms so he can't do certain tasks.
    • A Princess Zelda appears briefly in Bowser Junior's first grade, and describes herself as spoiled and not wanting to go to school.
    • Mickey Mouse is a greedy jerkass who is a drug addict and drug dealer.
    • Mario accidentally enters a literal alternate universe in the first Season 3 episode of Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures, where there are counterparts to most of the actual SML characters:
      • Bowser is working for Chef Pee Pee, who himself watches Harleyyy and Friends in addition to Charleyyy.
      • Shrek is obsessed with green peas and taking pees, and calls everyone "Camel".
      • A white Yoshi is in Black Yoshi's place, and he plays Animal Crossing on the Wii instead of Call of Duty.
      • Toad is a country singer, and his voice is deep, compared to his actual high voice.
      • Mama Luigi is intelligent and very smart, compared to his retarded personality in the actual SML universe. He also claims the alternate Mario to run around the house making unintelligent noises, very much like the actual Mama Luigi.
      • There is no counterpart to Bowser Junior, Woody, Tony the Tiger or any of the recurring characters.
  • Always a Bigger Fish:
    • If you thought Junior was spoiled, JEFFY is even more so, crying for chocolate cake and even locking Mario outside so he could eat his. If you thought Tony the Tiger was stupid, JEFFY manages to outdo him. If you thought Black Yoshi humiliated Mario and got him on the local news all the time, JEFFY humiliates Mario on a global scale and, hands down, the media completely accepts his downright lies despite Mario TELLING THE TRUTH.
    • If you thought Bowser was a horribly mean Abusive Parent, then you clearly haven't seen Nancy.
  • American Accents:
    • Brooklyn T. Guy has a thick Brooklyn accent.
    • Toad's sister, Paulina, also has a Brooklyn accent.
    • Tanner most likely has a Californian surfer accent due to his usage of dudes.
  • Amusing Injuries: Bowser Junior gets two black eyes and is thrown into a wheelchair from saying the N-word, shown in "Bowser Junior's YouTube Channel!".
    • In "Jeffy's Homework!", Jeffy severely knocks out Mario while practicing teeball, and even gives him a hemorrhage, a blackened face and a wrapped forehead.
  • An Arm and a Leg:
    • In "Bowser Junior's Lightsaber!", Junior accidentally chops off Chef Pee Pee's arm with a lightsaber.
    • He also cuts off his own hand (and later Chef Pee Pee's) in "The Gun!" after getting in trouble from his and his friends' fingerprints ending up on the titular gun.
  • And I Must Scream: In "Bowser Junior's Annoying Toy!", Chef Pee Pee traps Junior inside a ball popper toy, after asking him to put in something "loud and annoying".
  • And You Were There: Lampshaded in "Bowser Junior Needs Glasses!":
    Bowser Junior: I just had the craziest dream! (starts pointing at everyone) And you were there! And you were there! And you! And you!
  • April Fools' Plot: "April Fools!" is based on this. Turns out it was actually April 2nd.
  • Arc Words: "Bowser Junior's Cookies!" has...well..."cookies". At the end of the video, the trope is repeated again, this time with "Chips Ahoy cookies".
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: In Part 7 of "Luigi's Mansion," Craig says that jaywalking will usually get you into Hell (and that not tipping the mailman is nearly as bad). In "Evil Chef Pee Pee!", he declares to send Chef Pee Pee to hell due to the latter "jaywalking pretty bad back in 1997", and he even makes Junior pay for a Hershey's candy bar at a convenience store entirely with pennies.
  • Artistic License – Biology: In "Bowser Junior's Playtime 4", Sally (Cody) immediately gives birth to a baby girl upon embracing Ken, which is not logical at all. An actual mother has to have intercourse and a nine-month period of pregnancy before eventually having a baby.
  • Artistic License – History: In "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!", one of Bowser's high-school memories from 1985 is a Barney the Dinosaur doll. In real life, Barney didn't exist at that time, and didn't come out until October 1988.
  • Art Shift: "The Warp Pipe" uses 16-bit sprites for the pipe dimension, including sprites ripped from Super Mario World and Super Mario Maker, as well as custom 8-bit sprites of Chef Pee Pee and Brooklyn T. Guy.
  • Ascended Extra: Bowser Junior once appeared in an early episode of Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures, and didn't appear again until the Bowser Juice commercial. He then reappeared in "Bowser Junior's Macaroni", and slowly became a main character afterwards.
    • Brooklyn T. Guy, as well. He made his SML debut in a 2011 SML Short, and was Put on a Bus following the video. He then returned at the end of "Bowser Junior's Summer School 5", and is now a recurring character with so far over 30 jobs.
    • Joseph and Cody went from appearing only in the Summer School series to appearing in half of Junior's appearances in late 2014 to appearing in every single one of Junior's 2016 appearances, excluding "Bowser Junior's Cookies!", "Bowser's Goldfish!", "Bowser Junior Learns Karate!", "Smart Jeffy" and "Jeffy Loses His Teeth!", among a few others.
    • JEFFY. After going through a Chuck Cunningham Syndrome period following his debut, he reappeared in "Bowser Junior's Game Night 3" and slowly ascended to main character position, very much like Bowser Junior did.
  • Asian Speekee Engrish: Jackie Chu.
  • Ass Shove:
    • In "Cody the Magician!" Junior does this with Cody's 6 of Clubs card after Cody tells him to do it.
    • In "Jeffy's Birthday!", Jeffy does this with the giant pencil Mario gets him as a birthday present.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: After Bowser Junior gets his own credit card (which is very unuseful for his age), he tries his best not to spend it but winds up distracted by several TV advertisements. It gets worse when Joseph later starts suggesting him more expensive things such as a trampoline, a swimming pool, ten pizzas and a bounce-house that Junior delicately accepts despite Cody's warnings, going beyond his $10,000 limit and therefore causing the Loan Dolphin and Mr. Goodman to take away all the things he spent his credit card on because he never paid the money back.
    • In "Bowser's Cookies", the cookies that Chef Pee Pee made for Bowser would've still stayed useful if Toad never got distracted by a running cat.
    • The plot of "Bowser Junior's Candy Bar!" gets kicked off because of Junior's attention span; he ends up stealing a Hershey's chocolate bar despite his own warnings to not want anything.
  • Author Avatar: A puppet version of Logan appears in "Bowser Junior's 1st Grade! Part 4".
  • Ax-Crazy:
    • In "Bowser Junior Gets Rabies!", Bowser Junior (and later Chef Pee Pee) becomes a foaming rabid monster after getting rabies from being bit by a squirrel.
    • It is implied that Joseph is secretly insane according to multiple episodes, and in "Joseph Moves In!", it is also revealed that he may have killed his mom.
  • Babysitting Episode:
    • In "Black Yoshi's Job", Bowser and Chef Pee Pee have to go to the hospital after the former thinks he has chicken pox (thanks to Charleyyy) and the latter accidentally chops his own hand off after hearing a yell from the former, and they need someone to watch Bowser Junior. Since Black Yoshi needs the money to buy the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare game, Mario volunteers him to babysit Junior. Junior soon finds out he's no match for Black Yoshi, as Black Yoshi shoots his toys whenever he acts like a Bratty Half-Pint, and even shoots Toad when they play doctor together.
    • Black Yoshi gets another babysitting job from Mario in "Jeffy's Mistake!", when Mario asks him to babysit Jeffy while he takes Rosalina out on a date. To keep Jeffy entertained, Black Yoshi lets him play a game of Grand Theft Auto, which results in Jeffy destroying his Xbox One. Needless to say, Black Yoshi does not take this well.
    • Shrek gets a babysitting job from Mario in "Shrek the Babysitter!", wherein he has to babysit both Bowser Junior and Jeffy when Bowser and Chef Pee Pee go to a gay strip club, and Mario has to take Black Yoshi to his probation meeting. As a prank, Junior and Jeffy lock Shrek in the bathroom. They later eat his cheesecake, which turns out to be a big mistake when Shrek breaks out.
    • Chef Pee Pee gets a babysitting job from Mario in "Chef Pee Pee The Babysitter!", when he asks him to babysit Jeffy while he goes to a meeting at Nintendo headquarters, promising to pay him $500 when he gets back. Chef Pee Pee has to juggle both looking after a disruptive Jeffy and cooking everything Bowser wants to eat, especially since Bowser also promised to pay him $500 if he succeeded.
  • Berserk Button:
    • NEVER mess with Black Yoshi's Call of Duty or ask him to play 2 Player. And if you know what's good for you, you won't destroy his Xbox One.
    • Don't eat Shrek's cheesecake. You'll be sure to have a bad death.
    • If you're playing trains with Junior, don't ever play with Thomas, even if he has more than one, as he always wants to be Thomas. He'll make you play with another train, most commonly The Ugly Red Onenote . Also, don't ever say anything positive about Big Hero 6 around him.
      • Don't ever, ever think of stealing Junior's stuff. He will kill you, or at least beat you up.
    • Bowser hates it when people call him while he's watching Charleyyy and Friends.
    • One thing that irritates Cody the most is Junior telling him the Sun is a planet. This has gotten so bad that Cody actually shoved Junior down a set of stairs when he said it.
    • Never EVER cheat on Rosalina, she will give you a beating if you're looking at another woman behind her back.
    • Jeffy's obnoxious behavior is a big button for Mario.
    • Don't ever call Tyrone Calvin by the N-word or by the F-word (the OTHER F-word). You'll be sure to suffer Amusing Injuries, as Bowser Junior and Mario found out in "Bowser Junior's YouTube Channel!" and "Jeffy's Bad Word!", respectively.
    • In "Jeffy Loses His Teeth", it is shown if you give dollars to Jeffy if he loses his teeth, he will not take it well.
    • Do not call Jeffy "bad".
  • Big Bad: Both Bowser and Principal Steinbeck have this role in Bowser Junior's Summer School.
  • Big Damn Movie: Logan is revealed to be working on one.
    • Mr. Winkle can be seen as this for Parts 2, 3 and 5 of Bowser Junior's 1st Grade!.
  • Birthday Episode:
    • Bowser Junior has had four; "Bowser Junior's Birthday Cake", "Bowser Junior's 6th Birthday", "Bowser Junior's 7th Birthday!", and "Bowser Junior's 8th Birthday!".
    • In "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday", Chef Pee Pee has a crappy birthday thanks to Bowser, Junior, and his deadbeat father. In particular, Bowser gave him a spatula, Junior gave him The Ugly Red Train (and later took it back), and his father was happy he didn't have to pay him any child support. Jackie Chu later turns things around for him by giving him a shirt with his name on it and informing him he will also be getting an iPad in the mail. Jackie Chu also invites Chef Pee Pee to help him name his pregnant wife's upcoming child.
    • Chef Pee Pee celebrates his birthday again in "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday Surprise!". When Junior overhears how upset Chef Pee Pee is (due to having to clean up both Chompy's poop and Junior's pee), he decides to throw him a Thomas the Tank Engine-themed party with the help of his friends. To keep it a surprise, he locks Chef Pee Pee in his closet. To say the least, Chef Pee Pee goes through an emotional rollercoaster at his party.
    • "Chef Poo Poo's Kitchen Disaster!" takes place during Bowser's Mom's 200th birthday.
    • "Cody's Birthday!" has Cody revealing his birthday is on February 29th, which falls once every four years, and telling Junior and Joseph that he's 8 years old but technically due to the laws of time, actually two years old. However, this proves to be a big mistake for him, as Junior and Joseph go far to make a baby-themed birthday party for him and pretend that he's a baby himself.
    • Jeffy celebrates his birthday in "Jeffy's Birthday!", wherein he wants to go to Disney World to see Mickey Mouse. Because Mario doesn't have the money to go to Disney World, he decides to spend Jeffy's birthday at Chuck E. Cheese's, seeing as they also have a mouse for a mascot, hoping Jeffy won't know the difference. He also gets Chef Pee Pee to make a pencil cake for Jeffy and invite Junior, Joseph, and Cody.
  • Black Comedy: The show mostly has upbeat humor, however many scenes in the show are this trope.
    • Nearly any scene involving Bowser have him beating the hell out of his son while his son screams in pain until Bowser calms down. Granted, Junior usually starts it.
    • The episode "Bowser Junior's Punishment!" has Junior reacting to being in the corner for five minutes akin to a man who's been in solitary prison for a decade.
    • One Charleyyy and Friends episode is about Charleyyy daring to eat an onion without crying, only for him to breakdown about his dad leaving him as a child. Bowser laughs.
      • In another during the Luigi's Mansion arc, Charleyyy dances in the street recklessly and gets hit by a car. Bowser notes he's even funnier when dead.
      • In yet another, Charleyyy notes it is Mother's Day and he's with his beautiful baby daughter. He then switches to a deadpan speech as he admits his daughter doesn't have a mother because she left, and then hurls his daughter down the stairs, with Bowser laughing at how hilarious it is. It's just a baby doll, but still.
    • Doofy the Dragon is a kid's show involving Doofy singing about drugs, testicles, and killing. He always kills himself at the end of each episode, and Bowser Junior laughs.
    Doofy: (singing)
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star
    I have drugs inside my car
    If the cops show up I'm (BLEEP)
    I might as well give myself up.
    (cue police siren) Oh (BLEEP), there's the cops, I gotta run
    I'm gonna kill myself with this gun. (shoots self)
    Junior: (laughs) That's so funny, Doofy!
    • "Home Alone" has Junior killing one of three criminals by dropping a bowling ball on her, and putting one of them in the oven, after both of which he electrocutes the last one unconscious and ties him to the tracks with the intent to cut his head off. Officer Goodman arrives in time, though, and arrests the last criminal before being executed. Junior is not charged, however. What makes this even darker is that when the first criminal dies, both of the remaining ones note that the first one just recently had a kid and didn't even want to be here, and the second criminal who dies steals Junior's Thomas the Tank Engine toy because his son has always wanted one.
    • Black Yoshi spends most of his episodes committing jokes like this. He kills Joseph "CharleyBrown678" for cutting his electricity, and shoots Junior's toys when he acts like a brat.
    • In the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? spinoff, two of the questions are:
      • 1. How many planes were hijacked on 9/11? A. 2. B. 4. C 7. D. 45.
      • 1. How many people died in the Holocaust? A. 11 Million. B. 6 Million. C. 17 Trillion. D. 12.
      • The Brooklyn Guy notes how ridiculous these answers are, especially mad at the question writer for putting "12" as a logical possible answer to the number of people who died in the Holocaust.
    Brooklyn Guy: How many— (sees question and sighs) How, wow, already. Okay, how many planes were hijacked during the September 11th Terrorist Attacks. A. Two. B. Four. C. Seven. D. Forty-forty-five. Forty-five. Really? Forty-five planes? That's a lot of planes. How many-how-how would they get that many planes? They would crash into each other. Who wrote this? Let me write it next time. This is ridiculous. (looks at Craig the Devil) It's not that one. I'll tell you right now it's not that one.
    Brooklyn Guy: How many people- man, these questions are sad. Okay, how many died during the Holocaust? A. Eleven million. B. Six million. C. Seventeen trillion, that seems kinda high. And D. Twelve. Twelve people. Twelve-yes-twelve people died in the Holocaust. Twelve. There's-there's more people in the audience tonight than died in the Holocaust. Yeah sure, yeah that makes sense. Yeah okay, twelve people. Twelve peo-Twelve people would even be that big of a deal. Twelve people would be-it would barely make the paper, maybe a local paper, like, in a small box on the bottom. But-but that's pretty much it. Ugh. (whispers) Goddammit. (speaks loudly) Who is writing these? Who is-who is actually writing these? Is it Kevin? I bet it's Kevin that stupid bastard. I bet it's him, I bet money it's him. That's coming out of your paycheck if he gets this right. It is. Yeah, you.
    • In Bowser Junior's 1st Grade!, one of the class's teachers is a pedophile who is implied to have molested Cody in the bathroom during lunch.
    • Bubbles is a convicted serial rapist. When he appears in the Summer School arc, he escapes his cuffs, runs away, then runs back to the classroom and grabs Pixie Goblin before running again. When Pixie Goblin shows up again, he says he doesn't want to talk about what happened and sobs. Later, in the same episode, it's show and tell, and during Pixie Goblin's show and tell he tries to show his sword. Officer Goodman mistakes it for a real weapon and doesn't realize it's sewn to his hand, resulting in Pixie Goblin being reunited with Bubbles.
    Bubbles: (grabs Pixie Goblin with a crazed smile) Ready for round two?!
    • Chef PeePee calls the number for the Crocodile Hunter, only to be informed that Steve Irwin died due to a stingray attack. He notes that weird because he wasn't the "Stingray Hunter". In reality, Steve Irwin is the name of a man known as the Crocodile Hunter who did die from a stingray attack.
    • Craig the Devil notes his dogs are barking, unlike Michael Vick's.
    • During "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!", Bowser and Junior are looking at Bowser's old yearbook from high school. Bowser is shown in the yearbook with a red afro and mustache, and Junior notes he looks like he was about to shoot up a movie theatre in Colorado. Bowser simply admits he was going to but didn't get around to it. The red afro and shooting joke are a reference to the 2012 Aurora shooting by James Holmes, who had dyed his hair red prior to the shooting and had it in an afro.
    • The Bowser Junior's Playtime videos and the Thanksgiving Playtime Special shown in the 2014 Thanksgiving Episode.
      • Junior is an alcoholic who beats his wife, berates his daughter and wife, tried to abort his daughter's pregnancy by attacking her, didn't care when his wife was cooking his daughter, sleeps with his secretary, and even tried to kill his granddaughter because he didn't like her name.
      • Joseph plays the wife who regularly argues, screams, and cries with the anger directed at Junior. She is apparently sleeping with a Hispanic man, and even admits to not wanting her own daughter.
      • Cody plays "Sally" the daughter who is in love with a man named "Ken" who got her prematurely pregnant. She apparently still wears diapers at her age, and is forced to witness her parents' constant bickering and yelling. She has also been told by both of them that neither actually love her. It's a good thing this is Pretend House.
  • Blanket Fort: The whole point of "Bowser Junior's Pillow Fort!". Junior builds his own pillow fort, which he names "Fort Junior", and when he invites his friends in they are cramped inside thanks to Cody and Ken. This gets Junior to forbid Ken from entering the fort, which in turn prevents Cody from going in as well. This results in Cody building his own fort and inviting Joseph in. In the end, both Junior and Cody destroy each other's pillow fort, and an angry Chef Pee Pee blames the resulting mess on Junior and forces him to clean it up.
  • Blatant Lies: At the end of "Drawing Jeffy!", Junior captures Drawing!Jeffy in a piece of paper and crumbles it up while saying that he's never coming back to life ever again. Come June 15th 2017, when "Jeffy Sneaks Out!" was uploaded, which involved Jeffy bringing back an identical form of Drawing!Jeffy from PlayDoh in order for him to serve as a substitute for Jeffy while he and Junior go out to see a movie.
  • Bloody Hilarious: In "The Drone!".
  • Book Ends: "Where's Jeffy?" begins and ends with Jeffy riding a unicorn piñata while playing a maraca, a rubber chicken, and a cat piano, while Mario plugs his ears.
  • Bottle Episode: Shrek's Hot Cheesecake from 2013, witch only has two characters (Shrek and Woody), one voice actor (Lance) and is mostly set in the kitchen.
    • Jeffy's Fun Day, is arguably also this, as it's mostly a still image of Jeffy watching paint dry.
  • Box-and-Stick Trap: In "Bowser Junior Gets Rabies!", when Chef Pee Pee discovers Junior has rabies, he calls the Brooklyn Guy for a solution on how to cure him. The Brooklyn Guy suggests capturing Junior using one of these traps before he shows up as a doctor. Chef Pee Pee does so, using Junior's golden Thomas the Tank Engine toy as bait. When the Brooklyn Guy shows up later, he asked Chef Pee Pee if he recorded Junior's capture in the trap for him to see, but Chef Pee Pee tells him he didn't.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: The show obviously loves this trope.
    • When Joseph, Junior, and Cody are going to get their pictures taken by Mr. Winkle:
    Joseph: I don't like showing my braces off.
    Junior: You have braces?
    Joseph: Well, see?! There you go!
    Cody: Joseph, we don't even have mouths.
    • When Chef PeePee is getting frisked for being "brown" in "Chef Pee Pee Quits! Part 1":
    Goodman: What is this? What is this?!
    PeePee: It's the hand that's controlling me right now.
    • In "Bowser's Broken TV", Chef Pee Pee turns to the camera at one point and says "I'm-a be here all week, people".
    • In "Black Yoshi's Fried Chicken", after Tyreese kills Chef Pee Pee, and he and Black Yoshi cook him into fried chicken and eat him, Mario is outraged and disgusted with them.
    Mario: So many fans are going to think that he's not gonna be in the next video, but he really is!
    • From "Evil Bowser":
    Mario: Bowser, you're... you're just not evil anymore. I mean, people used to look at you as this big, evil, scary monster who did bad things, but people just look at you as a old, lazy, bipolar white guy.
    Bowser: (gasps) But I'm black! I'm voiced by a black guy!
    Mario: Y-you're voiced by a black guy?
    Bowser: You know what? Never mind!
    • From "The Warp Pipe!":
    Mario: "I'm just not doing it any more! I'm stick and tired of the stairs!"
    Chef Pee Pee: "Well, I have to climb up and down every day to take Junior to school, and get happy meals! So you're not the only one who has to deal with it!"
    Mario (looks down at Chef Pee Pee): "Well, I mean, you don't... you don't have legs. You're..."
    Chef Pee Pee: "Wait, don't worry about my legs!"
    • From "Bowser Junior's Halloween Problem!", when Bowser Junior is trying to relax:
    Junior: What's stuff that's not scary? Uh...uh, YouTube comments! Yeah! Gonna think about YouTube comments. (four comments appear on screen saying they hate Junior)
    • In "Cool Cody!", Junior does it twice. First he tells the "fans out there" that the Toadette in the video isn't the same one from the previous video (likely referring to "Toad's Girlfriend!") and that there are different Toads and Toadettes in the Mario Universe, so she is a different Toadette. And then he mentions him and Joseph having Ken in the next scene when they can't find him in the previous one.
    • "From "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!":
    Junior: Okay, there's something on top of the refrigerator, and I need yall's help to get it cause' I'm too short.
    Joseph: Okay.
    Cody: Junior, we're... we're controlled by hands. I mean, look, I... See? We can go as high as we need to.
    Junior: Stop breaking the fourth wall, Cody!
    Joseph: Yeah, Cody! Always ruining stuff!
    Cody: Sorry.
    • In 'Bowser Junior's YouTube Channel!", Junior uploads a prank video where he clearly paid off the prank victim. Two comments are left on the video, one of which says "fake and gay", and posted by a certain YouTuber. Junior looks at the name and yells "Well, screw you SuperMarioLogan!"
    • In "Pop Rocks and Coke!", Junior mentions cutting to the next scene and therefore getting packets of Pop Rocks and a can of Coke in the process.
    • From "The Tarantula!", when Chef Pee Pee tries to convince Junior to get a new pet after Chompy runs away:
    Chef Pee Pee: Look, look, look, this is your chance to get a new pet. Why don't you just get a cat or a fish, or...
    Junior: There was, there was a cat in an earlier scene if you look in the background. (referring to Logan's own cat Precious)
    Chef Pee Pee: Oh, yeah.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Game Night 4", when Junior, Joseph, and Cody play Jenga Quake, Cody mentions that he saw some comments informing him that after you take a block out, you have to put it on top of the tower, which is what they forgot to do last time they played Jenga.
    • The entirety of the ending sequence of "Evil Chef Pee Pee!" is a huge joke with this trope. Junior admits they didn't really think the ending through, and Cody tells them to get to the SML Question (the question Logan always asks at the end of every video). The question has Cody being incredibly sarcastic enough to ask "Have you ever thrown a frozen water balloon at your personal chef and accidentally killed him. And then summon the devil to bring him back but then he came back evil and killed your dad and a cop?" Junior says that's a brilliant question and the funniest comment will win a free video game. He then also goes on to mock everyone who complains about not getting their game, as he says that maybe everyone should be checking their YouTube messages as a clip of Logan checking his YouTube message inbox plays.
  • Brick Joke:
    • In "Chef Pee Pee's Clone", after Chef Pee Pee gets out of the bathroom, he says, "I took an opposite of a Chef Pee Pee in there! They should call me Chef Poo Poo!". Guess what Junior names Chef Pee Pee's clone at the end of the video.
    • "Bowser Junior Loses Thomas!" begins with Junior playing with Thomas and a dinosaur toy. At the end of the video, when Chef Pee Pee finds Thomas and gives him back to Junior, Junior loses his dinosaur toy and calls for Chef Pee Pee to help him find it.
    • In "Black Yoshi's Girlfriend Problem!", after Delilah breaks up with Black Yoshi, she hooks up with Popeye, who tries to open up a can of spinach so he can beat up Black Yoshi. Unfortunately, he can't get the can open. At the end of the episode, Popeye returns, revealing he finally got the can open.
    • In "Cody the Magician!", Junior shoves the 6 of Clubs card up his ass. Later in the episode, when Cody's Ken doll does his escape artist trick, the card that was previously in Junior's ass appears in the tank, in Ken's place.
    • In "Jeffy's Mistake!", Black Yoshi gets triggered after Jeffy destroys his Xbox One. At the end of the video, after Mario wakes up and realizes the entire video was just a dream, he also gets triggered when Jeffy tells him he pooped in Mario's bed.
    • At the beginning of "Big Ears!", Chef Pee Pee tries to cook a pizza, only to find Junior's G.I. Joe action figures in the oven. At the end of the episode, when Chef Pee Pee takes the pizza out of the oven, pieces of Junior's G.I. Joe action figures can be seen in it.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: Bowser Junior in "Life Is Ruff" while Chef Pee Pee was yelling at him.
  • Broken Record: Stephen Hawking in Smart Jeffy, when his voice glitches out, causing him to get eliminated.
  • Butt-Monkey:
    • Mario would be most definitely this. This rose up after Peach broke up with him over Mario's hair, continuing prior to him hooking up with Rosalina. Come 2016, when Jeffy gets dropped off at Mario's door. This gets bigger than ever, resulting in Mario becoming The Chew Toy and throwing him into numerous mental breakdowns due to him being unable to deal with his situation.
    • Chef Pee Pee is this as well, being bothered by Bowser and Junior every day. One notable example would be falling into a coma after Bowser tries riding him like a Yoshi in Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventures. He even sang a song in "Chef Pee Pee Quits! Part 6" about this.
    • Toad was constantly treated as garbage by the characters. This was nullified starting from "Toad is Cool".
    • Bowser Junior has a small status of Butt Monkiness, which escalated starting from Bowser Junior Goes to Military School!, where in he gets constantly traumatized from doing various pushups, pushing heavy rocks, passing logs, climbing ropes and walls, getting hot sauce in his eyes and scrubbing a dirty toilet with a toothbrush, watching Big Hero 6, eating dirt and watching Thomas being burnt before eventually getting broken both physically and mentally.
  • The Cameo:
    • Peach and Bowser Junior qualify as this in "Mario's Beautiful Date!".
    • "Bowser Junior's Nerf War!" has Jeffy and Mario of all people appearing at the end.
    • Logan's cat Precious makes three brief appearances in "Bowser's Cookies", "The Tarantula!" and "Bowser Junior's Bad Luck!".
  • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': Joseph tries to cheat on his exam, he gets busted. Junior tries to alter his grades on his report card, he gets busted. Junior tries to lie about breaking his dad's favorite cup, he gets busted. Junior tries to fix the table that he broke with Bowser's old Clown Car, he gets busted.
  • Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them: Mario begins to show signs of this in "Jeffy's Mistake!" when Black Yoshi threatens to kill Jeffy and Mario tries to stop him claiming that he "really hates Jeffy but he's just a kid" and tells Black Yoshi not to kill him. He comes to his senses though after Black Yoshi asks him to buy him a new Xbox in trade of killing Jeffy.
  • The Cat Came Back:
    • No matter what Mario tries in order to get rid of Jeffy, he always fails. This sometimes happens in the case where he tries to lure Jeffy somewhere far away.
    • Taken to an even bigger extent with Hansel who, in "Mario's Hobo Problem!", always reappears next to Mario regardless of where he came from, whether it is a locked bathroom or outdoors.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Many characters;
    • Jeffy is the most prominent with his weird behavior, such as slapping his diaper frequently.
    • Cody, who believes his Ken doll is real.
    • Shrek, who calls everyone "Donkey" and is obsessed with cheesecake and taking a dump.
  • Cluster F-Bomb:
    • Chef Pee Pee is prone to saying these when he's mad.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Credit Card!", Goodman repeatedly claims Junior has "f**ked him" after the latter reaches his credit card limit and doesn't give the money back from the things he borrowed.
    • Jeffy, as of "Smart Jeffy", is prone to going into swearing rants, such as in "Jeffy Loses His Teeth!" after Mario (disguised as the Tooth Fairy) gives him a dollar for his teeth.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: The show's main type of humor is built around this idea.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • In "Bowser Junior's Sleepover", Cody tells Junior and Joseph that his mom still breastfeeds him. Junior and Joseph think it involves chicken.
    • The Brooklyn Guy can partially be this, as well, as shown in "The Grilled Cheese" and "The Pizza Delivery!".
  • Comical Overreacting: Junior seems to feel the need to shout at the top of his lungs where they're going and when they arrive.
    Chef PeePee: We're at Chuck E. Cheese.
    Junior: CHUCKY CHEESE!!!!!!!!
  • Comic Trio: Junior, Joseph and Cody become this each time an argument occurs between them about the Sun being a planet, with Junior coming up with the theory, Joseph believing him, and Cody trying to prove him wrong.
  • Companion Cube:
    • Bowser Junior's Thomas the Tank Engine toy.
    • Also Cody's Ken doll.
    • In "Cody's Sister!", Cody's twin sister, Katy, is revealed to have a Barbie doll, much like how her brother owns a Ken doll. Katy hasn't even taken her Barbie doll out of its box, though.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment:
    • In Part 3 of "Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventure", to get Sonic to talk about the whereabouts of Princess Peach, Bowser and Mario do such things as pour tea down the sink, crumple up a picture of the Queen of England, and brush his teeth.
    • In "Cody's Revenge!", when Bowser threatens to send Junior to Military School, some of the punishments the Brooklyn Guy gives to him are to make him listen to Justin Bieber and watch Big Hero 6. Later in the same episode, as part of his blackmail, Cody makes Junior watch the latter on Blu-Ray with him twice.
  • CPR: Clean, Pretty, Reliable: The video "Bowser's Depression" has Chef Pee Pee performing CPR on Bowser after the latter hangs himself in the bathroom following Charleyyy and Friends' cancelling. Chef Pee Pee even notes it is gross.
  • Crossover: Angry Birds, Shrek, Woody and Hamm and more.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: The problem for Mario in Shrek's Coma is mainly due to him over-reading into Rosalina's comments about Shrek.
  • Curse Cut Short:
    • Mostly used in the form of Sound Effect Bleeps, but a few instances are uncensored however.
      • "Cool Cody!" took advantage of the Subverted version Up to Eleven, with just about every cuss in the video uncensored.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Lottery Ticket!", after Junior wins the lottery, the government bans usage of fake IDs, including Junior's (which he has made in an attempt to win). Junior and his friends end up deciding to give the ticket to a stranger and make him give the billion dollars back in return, but the stranger claims the money all for himself. Guess what happens next?
    Junior: WHAT THE— (end of episode)
  • Darker and Edgier:
    • Any sleepover episode (and the early video "Mario's Nightmare"), being that they have Nightmare Fuel moments.
    • "The Ouija Board!" as well, since it is a source of Nightmare Fuel just like the sleepover videos.
    • "Bowser Junior's Nerf War!" sure counts, since it has more action than any other Junior video. It's just like Junior's debut all over again.
    • Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures slowly became this as the series went on.
    • Jeffy's Parents! The episode was much more saddening than usual, and the antagonist was not played for laughs either.
    • Attack Of The Killer Shrimp! (The more recent SML video): A darker, more dramatic, violent and intense retelling of Shrimpo Hunter, as the killer shrimp depicted in this video was played very seriously, not to mention the deaths of its victims can be considered Nightmare Fuel. And the scene where Mario tries to convince Woody to come out of retirement plays out like an actioner and is seriously emotional. And aside from Brooklyn T. Guy's shrimp puns and the conga line joke (from Jeffy's Brain!), this episode is very much akin to a horror movie with its dark, intense tone.
  • A Day in the Limelight:
    • "Chef Poo Poo's Kitchen Disaster!" for Chef Poo Poo, a clone of Chef Pee Pee Junior made with a toaster oven in "Chef Pee Pee's Clone!".
    • In "Joseph's House!", Joseph invites Junior and Cody over to his run-down house when Bowser has his apartment fumigated for termites.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Brooklyn T. Guy. In particular when he's the Millionaire Host, in response to some of the questions given and some of the answers. Like when a $500 question is about how many people died in the Holocaust and one of the answers is 12.
    • Chef Pee Pee can also be this, especially towards Bowser Junior.
  • Depraved Kids' Show Host: Doofy the Dragon, who is known for constantly committing suicide in various ways, murdering small animals, telling kids to do cocaine, and even hosting a meet and greet to have a mass suicide!
  • Didn't Think This Through:
    • At the end of "Bowser Junior's Summer School 5", Tanner pulls the fire alarm in an attempt to get out of a test, but it only turns the Brooklyn Guy into a recurring character. And not only that, but the latter also teaches the class about fire safety the next day just all over this cause. What the hell Tanner?
    • Twice in "Bowser Junior Needs Glasses!". Junior tries to look into the Sun with a telescope to prove Cody that the Sun is a planet, but gets legally blind from doing so. Later in the episode, Chef Pee Pee tries to make Junior feel better by suggesting that he would read a book so he would "gain knowledge and make himself smarter", but it only worsened the problem, as Junior started acting too smart and literally called his friends and Chef Pee Pee names. The only thing that could stop the problem now was to knock out Junior and replace his glasses with eye contacts while he was unconscious.
    • In "Bowser Junior's All Nighter!", Junior, Joseph and Cody attempt to drink a whole pile of energy drinks to stay awake, all over a remaining piece of cookie. After they are finished drinking, they get an energy boost, but about 30 minutes later they are completely crashed and exhausted.
    • In "Life Is Ruff!", Joseph and Cody are the first to realize that Junior is in the body of Chompy, his pet chain-chomp. Cody gives Junior two balls; one red and one blue, and tells him to pick the red ball if he really is in Chompy's body. Being colorblind, Junior accidentally chooses the blue ball. Cody later realizes that dogs are colorblind, and even if Junior was in Chompy's body, he wouldn't be able to tell the two balls apart.
  • Ding-Dong-Ditch Distraction: In Part One of "Bowser Junior's Summer School" story arc, it is revealed that the reason that Junior got a B- in attendance (compared to the rest of his report card, which consisted of Fs) was because he and Toad sometimes skipped school to play Ding Dong Ditch, including one time at Bowser's own house.
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
    • In "Toad's Mistake 3", Toad has some of Shrek's cheesecake, a dish Shrek eats constantly. Shrek chases him while holding a knife, gives him a swirly, craps on him, and murders him in a blender.
    • Steinbeck giving Toad a violent beating all over a paper ball.
    • In "Black Yoshi's Job", when Black Yoshi has to babysit Bowser Junior, he pulls out his gun and shoots Junior's toys when Junior makes him play with one tiny dinosaur against his many bigger ones. He also threatens to pull out his gun again when Junior won't let him play with his Thomas the Tank Engine toy, and even shoots Toad when they play doctor.
    • In "The Call of Duty Problem!", Bowser Junior kills Black Yoshi in a game of Call of Duty, then is dumb enough to tell him his address. Black Yoshi responds by destroying Junior's Xbox One and stealing his Thomas toy.
    • In "Black Yoshi's Call of Duty: Black Ops III!", when Mario buys Black Yoshi a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Wii U bundlenote  instead of the PS4 bundle, Black Yoshi destroys the Wii U by shooting it with a crossbow and threatens to kill Mario if he doesn't get him the PS4 bundle.
    • In "Jeffy's Mistake!", both Jeffy and Black Yoshi fell victim to this. The former destroyed the latter's Xbox One by tossing it out a three-story window after dying in a game of Grand Theft Auto, and the latter tied up the former, stuffed a grenade in his mouth and threatened to kill him for doing so.
    • In "Bowser Junior Goes to Military School" the drill sergeant tells Jr to clean his toilet with a toothbrush and make it so clean that he can eat off of it (which he intends to do). When he eats a sandwich off of the toilet and gets terribly sick, he ties Junior to a post and forces him to watch Big Hero 6.
    • A COUPLE in "Turkey Tyranny!": Obama bans all turkeys and makes them illegal to have on Thanksgiving, just because one attacked him, and Rosalina's parents threaten to wipe out the human race if they don't eat turkey at the Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Dirty Kid: Both Cody and Toad are highly and grotesquely perverted.
  • The Dog Bites Back:
    • Towards the end of "Bowser Junior's Broken Leg!", after pretending his leg is still broken two weeks after it healed to get free stuff from Chef Pee Pee, Junior admits that he's been lying to him for the last two weeks when Doofy the Dragon hosts a meet and greet at the mall, which he wants to go to. Chef Pee Pee beats up Junior to the point of breaking his other leg upon hearing this.
    • In "The Drone", Cody gives the titular toy to Junior in exchange for Junior's tongue and Chef Pee Pee's eyeball. Cody's response when Junior destroys the drone and wants his tongue back? "No backsies!"
    • In "Cody's Revenge!", after Junior breaks a bowl of Raisin Bran by tossing Cody's Ken doll after losing to him in a game of Super Mario Bros. Chess, Cody snaps a picture of the broken bowl and blackmails Junior with it as revenge for all the bad things he did to him. He makes Junior miserable and forces him to do everything from massaging Ken, to running a bubble bath, to letting him use Junior's golden Thomas, and even making Junior tell Joseph that Ken is absolutely real. When Cody tells Junior to admit that the sun is a star, Junior finally snaps.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: Mario towards Rosalina. Mario is afraid of hurting her feelings so he ends up lying just to keep her happy.
  • Don't Explain the Joke: When Bowser Junior and Chef PeePee are looking at Junior's homework, Chef PeePee notes that the second item on the spelling sheet is a pig. When he asks Chef PeePee, Chef PeePee tells him that it's his mother and bursts into laughter. Junior is confused and tries to explain his mother is a turtle.
  • Downer Ending:
    • Guaranteed there is a 90% chance any Jeffy video will end with this, the most infamous example being "Jeffy's Bad Word!".
    • "Chef Pee Pee's Lottery Ticket" and "Cody's Birthday!" count as well, among many others.
  • Dream Intro: "Mario The Babysitter!" starts with Bowser kidnapping Rosalina, when Mario appears in a Superman suit and defeats Bowser with his hair. When he grabs Rosalina, they both bump into a wall and Mario instantly wakes up. He is less than amused to find that it was just a dream.
  • Driven to Suicide:
    • Bowser hanged himself when Charleyyy and Friends got cancelled.
    • Mario was so incredibly upset about not having a girlfriend that he attempts to commit suicide. Bowser admits he only saved him because he wants to kill him himself, which doesn't particularly make Mario feel any better since Bowser is basically only saving him out of inconvenience.
    • Doofy the Dragon is this trope.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In "Jeffy's Stupid Home Video!", Mario submits his entry to America's Stupidest Home Videos, but as his entry ended up being rushed and made up of him hitting Jeffy with a hammer as a slapstick, the audience found it disturbing rather than funny, and the baby entry ends up winning for the second time in a row.
  • Dumb Blonde: Rosalina as of "The Pizza Delivery!" has been characterized into a stereotypical airhead obsessed with stars.
  • Ear Ache: In "Bowser Junior's Painting!", Pierre François cuts his own ear off in the name of art and puts it onto a black canvas in an attempt to improve it.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Some examples:
    • In early videos, Chef Pee Pee was a dimwitted chef who loved working for Bowser, but as the series went on, especially with the introduction of Bowser Junior, Chef Pee Pee became smarter and grew to hate Bowser and Junior for treating him badly.
    • A more recent example: Rosalina in her first few appearances cried at daytime because she could no longer see the stars, but as of "The Pizza Delivery!" she became more of a stereotypical ditzy blonde afterwards.
    • Bowser originally was a main antagonist who terrorized Mario and the gang and was after Princess Peach like his canon counterpart, but eventually that was toned down and Bowser rarely terrorizes Mario and others if at all, even to the point of letting Mario move in his own house.
      • Additionally when Charleyyy and Friends first existed, Bowser was just fond of the show, but eventually became obsessed with it, which highly contributed to his change of character.
    • Bowser Junior in his first appearance in "Baby Mutant Turtles" is barely anything like the spoiled, obnoxious character that he became in later episodes. In fact, his debut is more of an action-paced explosion movie than anything else in his following appearances.
    • Goodman was originally the character with multiple jobs who would deal with most characters if they needed for example a cop or a medic for aid, but eventually Brooklyn T. Guy would slowly take over Goodman's role from 2014 onwards, with Goodman rarely appearing in newer episodes. And in the episodes that Goodman does appear he has appeared to be Flanderized into an idiot.
    • In early videos, Cody starts off as a smart Sickly Neurotic Geek, but now his medical issues are rarely touched upon and he's now more of a gay pervert and the sane man to Joseph and Junior. This was lampshaded in "Chef Pee Pee's Kids".
    • In early videos, Bowser used to have Goombas and Koopas as minions like his canon counterpart, but by 2014 they started to appear less and less, till they stopped showing up.
    • Prior to the events of "Bowser's House Fire!" and "Mario's Family Moves Out!", both Bowser's family and Mario's family were established to be living in different (yet similar) houses.
  • Easter Special:
    • "Bowser Junior's Easter Egg Hunt" has Junior challenge Bowser to an Easter egg hunt.
    • "Bowser Junior's Easter Wish!" has Junior wish that Chef Pee Pee was the Easter Bunny.
    • "Jeffy's Special Easter!" has Rosalina and Mario, the latter of who believes Easter to be a commercial holiday, celebrate it with Jeffy.
  • Eat That: When Mario became a donkey once, Shrek forced him to drink his poop through a straw as retribution for not bringing him toilet paper.
  • Electrified Bathtub: In "Bowser Junior's Sleepover", at the end of the first episode of Doofy the Dragon, Doofy kills himself by putting his hairdryer in his bathtub. Then a disclaimer shows up, warning the viewers not to attempt what Doofy did.
  • Embarrassing Damp Sheets:
    • In "Bowser Junior Gets Potty Trained!", Junior awakens to find his bed wet, and immediately jumps to the conclusion that he's a mermaid. Chef Pee Pee isn't fooled, and he tells Junior that he wet the bed. The rest of the episode deals with Junior being forced to wear diapers by Bowser, since he is unable to use the toilet properly at first, until Toad teaches Junior how to use the toilet through a rap song.
    • Junior wets his bed again in "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday Surprise!", after he has a dream about the Statue of Liberty, due to the fact that it's surrounded by water.
    • In "Joseph Moves In!", Joseph pees all over Junior's pillow, mistaking it for a toilet. When Junior tells Chef Pee Pee about it, Chef Pee Pee doesn't believe him and thinks he's blaming Joseph.
  • Everyone Owns A Mac and Everybody Owns a Ford: Every single non-gaming tech product is a Mac or iOS device. Apparently, everyone also drives the same red Corvette that Logan himself owns.
  • Evil Twin: In "The Secret Door!", it's revealed that Brooklyn T. Guy has an Ax-Crazy, evil identical twin brother named Does Bad Things Guy, of whom Mario thought was the real Brooklyn.
  • Excited Show Title!: Most videos starting from late 2014. Perhaps this is one of SML's mere attempts to make the show seem more like it's for kids?
  • Eye Cam:
    • Used when Sonic wakes up in Part 3 of Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventures.
    • Also used when Mario regains consciousness in "The Secret Door!" after getting knocked out by Does Bad Things Guy.
    • Used with Jackie Chu in "The Test!". As he claims he cannot see, well...
  • Eye Scream: Logan seems to think ocular injuries are funny.
    • Chef Pee Pee suffers it in "Bowser's Cookies" when Toad stabs his unprotected eye with a KNIFE and tries to fix it with a Band-Aid.
      • Happens again in the same episode at the end when Bowser sticks a fork into Chef Pee Pee's other eye apparently rendering him unable to see, but he somehow recovers in the next episode.
    • Chef Pee Pee suffers it again in "Bowser Junior Goes To Disney World!", after Junior finds the knife in a box of Doofy-O's that wins him a trip to Disney World.
    • Chef Pee Pee suffers it yet again in "The Drone!" and ends up with one of his eyeballs removed out of its socket.
    • Bowser Junior suffers it in "Bowser Junior's Happy Meal", when Chef Pee Pee tricks him into playing a game with the pair of scissors he tries to pass off as a Happy Meal toy.
    • Junior suffers it again in "Bowser Junior Gets his Nose Pierced!" when Cody accidentally pokes him in both his eyes when attempting to pierce his nose with a toothpick (which isn't shown to the viewers).
    • Bully Bill suffers it in "Bowser Junior Learns Karate!", when Junior uses chopsticks under the advice of Jackie Chu.
  • Failure Is the Only Option: In "Where's Jeffy?", Rosalina leaves Mario in charge of both Jeffy and her necklace while she goes to visit her parents for three days, and puts her necklace around Jeffy's neck. Mario takes Jeffy to the park, then leaves him there and rushes back to his apartment, happy to have Jeffy out of his life. Shortly afterwards, Mario realizes he doesn't have Rosalina's necklace, so he calls her to ask her where she left it, and she tells him she left it around Jeffy's neck. Mario rushes back to the park to find Jeffy upon hearing this...
    • Significantly, almost every Jeffy episode partly or completely relies on this.
  • Fainting: Mario passes out in "Jeffy's Sister!", over the stress of both Jeffy and his sister Feebee losing his house.
  • Fake High: In "Root Beer!", Junior and his friends get drunk off the titular drink. Brooklyn Guy even lampshades it at the end of the video by saying that they only got drunk because they were stupid.
  • Fantastic Racism: The audience is never actually told what "Folk" means, but apparently it can apply to virtually everything that isn't a Yoshi if how often Black Yoshi uses it is any indication.
  • "Fantastic Voyage" Plot: In "Jeffy Gets Stung By A Bee!", Mario and Brooklyn T. Guy go inside Jeffy in attempt to retrieve the "banana butterfly" (which Jeffy HAD swallowed after all).
  • Flanderization:
    • Bowser Junior's first appearance has him battling the good guys akin to a dramatic action movie, and attacking with the same way that the Super Mario Bros. Bowser would do to Mario. Starting from "Bowser Junior's Macaroni", he becomes a Spoiled Brat who lives with Bowser and Chef Pee Pee, and technically keeps annoying both of them while hanging out with his friends Joseph and Cody.
    • Rosalina is more of this herself. In her first few appearances, she was addicted to seeing stars, and would continually sob when they go out. As of "The Pizza Delivery!", she is more of a stereotypical ditzy blonde.
    • Though most fans won't recognize this, the Brooklyn Guy, in an SML Short released in 2011, was shown to be heroic but stupid, as he failed to save Toad because he got distracted by a phone. He becomes more of a Deadpan Snarker and Jerkass afterwards from "Bowser Junior's Summer School 5".
  • Foregone Conclusion: Every episode of Doofy the Dragon ends with him killing himself, typically by gunshot, but other ways have happened. In the episode "Bowser Junior's Broccoli Problem!", Junior notes that Joseph and Cody can't leave until they see how Doofy the Dragon ends today. Joseph notes that he just always kills himself so there's no secret. The group are bothered by a crocodile who is then forced to explain the difference between a crocodile and an alligator after the three think he's an alligator. When they return to the television, Doofy the Dragon is over and Junior notes he doesn't know how it ended. Joseph yells at him that "he just dies!".
  • Foreshadowing:
    • At the end of the final episode of Bowser Junior's Summer School, Principal Steinbeck tells Junior that they'll meet again. Sure enough, they do in the first episode of Bowser Junior's 1st Grade!.
    • Double foreshadowing occurs with Charleyyy and Friends: The Movie, first in "Bowser Junior's Nerf Gun" where the trailer for the movie is shown, and then in "Bowser Goes To The Movies!" where at the end Bowser mentions looking forward to the movie coming out on DVD, which eventually happens in "The Christmas Special!".
    • In "Broken", when Junior shows Joseph and Cody his new playroom, the letter magnets on the whiteboard are arranged to say "KEN DIES". Sure enough, Ken falls off the balcony and breaks in half.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Bowser Junior, more often in the 2016 videos.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip:
    • "Switching Bodies!" has Bowser Junior and Chef Pee Pee switching bodies after wishing what's it like to be each other. Hilarity Ensues, surprisingly.
    • In "Life is Ruff!", Junior and his pet chain-chomp, Chompy get hit by a truck (driven by Woody, no less), and they somehow end up in each other's bodies.
    • In "1 2 Switch Bodies!", a lightning bolt strikes Junior and Jeffy while they are playing 1-2 Switch on the Nintendo Switch, switching their bodies as a result. At the near end of the video, the exact same thing happens to Chef Pee Pee and Cody.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: This applies to people entirely depending on the situation, such as Mario hating Shrek but still being around him, and Joseph and Junior treating Cody like garbage because he's so weird.
  • Fun with Flushing:
    • In "Bowser Junior Gets Potty Trained!", as Toad teaches Junior how to use the toilet through a rap song, he puts the diaper Bowser forced Junior to wear in the toilet, and at the end of the episode, he and Junior flush the diaper down the toilet.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Annoying Toy!", Junior annoys everyone by playing with a ball popper toy. Fed up with this, Black Yoshi takes the balls out of Junior's ball popper and forces Junior to flush them down the toilet.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Broccoli Problem!", Junior gets rid of the broccoli Chef Pee Pee makes him eat by flushing it down the toilet. It only worsens the problem, as the broccoli lands in the mouth of a crocodile who lives in the sewers, thus causing him to infiltrate Junior's house in search of more food.
    • In "Bowser's Goldfish!", Junior plays with Bowser's pet goldfish, Charleyyy Jr., in the bathtub, until Toad arrives and tells Junior that they could take CJ on a water slide. Toad's idea on water slides for fishes, however, is flushing them down the toilet. Junior is against this, but Toad tells him that all toilets have a mechanism in them that keeps fish from getting flushed down. When Junior can't bring himself to flush the toilet, Toad does so, flushing CJ down it. When CJ doesn't come back out, Toad blames Junior for not having a toilet with a fish-catching mechanism. At the end of the episode, CJ comes back up the toilet, having grown massively in size, wanting revenge on Junior for flushing him.
    • In "Jeffy's Stupid Home Video!", Jeffy thinks he's trapped inside Mario's camera after Mario shows him a video he filmed of him swinging from the ceiling fan. In an attempt to get himself out of the camera, he flushes it down the toilet, destroying the camera as a result.
    • In "Cody The Magician!", when Junior and Joseph repeatedly misunderstand Cody's card trick, a frustrated Cody tells them to do anything other than show him or tell him what it is. Junior takes the 6 of Clubs card and flushes it down the toilet, but it gets stuck in the hole. When Junior gets back to Cody, Cody somehow has the 6 of Clubs card with him.
    • At the beginning of "Bowser Junior's Curse!", Junior tells Joseph and Cody that Bowser bought a toilet that can flush 18 golf balls. Cut to Junior doing just that.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: The entire series LOVES this trope.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Sickness", when Joseph and Cody come over to visit Junior, Junior wearily suggests that they play tissues together. Cody is happy to oblige, and tells Junior, "I play that in front of my computer all the time".
    • David Winkle's last name refers to a species of marine mollusk, but is also slang for a penis, or even peeing as Winkle mentions it.
    • Jeffy sometimes smacks his diaper while making a weird face. He's very obviously going on A Date with Rosie Palms.
      • Which is made even worse when Bowser Junior and his friends attempt to try it in "Bowser Junior's Game Night 3".
    • If you know what "pee pee" means, then Chef Pee Pee's name is a sentient example of Getting Crap Past the Radar. Shrek makes no attempt to hide this when addressing him.
    • In "Bowser's Mom", Margaret makes Bowser Junior cookies that are very...phallic. She even says what they're shaped like. At the end Joseph and Cody are given said cookies, and Cody decides to see how many they can fit in their mouth. Considering the cookies were startlingly phallic, well...
    • When Junior gets second place in "Bowser Junior's Go-Kart Race!", he's told to "suck it" by Cody, and he's given a bowl of Frosted Flakes or "Suck Flakes" as Cody nicknames said bowl, and he even tells him to suck the flakes. Even the least dirty minds will immediately know he's implying oral sex.
    • Dr. Finkleshitz's last name in "The Alien!" refers to the S-word, a word that you obviously can't put in kids' shows.
    • After Junior gets rabies once, he starts hallucinating. At one point he starts grunting and striking a weird open pose. It may be funny at first, but after you figure it out he might be probably hallucinating sex.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Or rather, in this case, living in his house.
  • A Good, Old-Fashioned Paint Watching: As a 2017 April Fool's joke, "SuperMarioLogan The Movie!" is revealed to be Jeffy painting a fence and then watching the paint dry for an hour. It even includes moving shadows!
  • Grand Finale: SML has made a few series that have ended this way:
    • Black Yoshi and the Birds ended with Episode 7, where Mario teamed up with the Pigs to kick the birds out of the house, while Black Yoshi was woken up by the Pigs' leader, Mr. Pig, after getting knocked out in the previous episode.
    • Before it was Un-Cancelled (which technically makes it a Series Fauxnale), Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures had finished with the Season 2 finale, where Mario had planned to go back in time to stop everyone from dying. In the end, he jumps into a portal to accomplish his plan, with some help from a Yoshi. The season itself ended with a brief clip from the very first episode of the series.
    • The final episode of Bowser Junior's Summer School was Episode 7 (very much like Black Yoshi and the Birds), in which the summer school Junior was attending had their final exam, and Junior was at risk of failing, so he conjures up a plan along with Chef Pee Pee. However, the plan soon fails, and Junior ends up taking the only other option to pass the class: "killing the fly".
      • "Bowser Junior's Summer Vacation" acts more as a Grand Finale to the series as a whole, where Junior and his friends celebrate the passing of summer school.
  • Growling Gut: Happens to Rosalina in "The Pizza Delivery!".
    • Happens to Shrek in "The Bird" and "Baby Shrek".
    • Chef Pee Pee's stomach growls in "Bowser's Cookies".
    • Happens to Junior in "Bowser Junior's Midnight Snack!" and "Bowser Junior's Happy Meal 2".

     H-N 
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Chef PeePee and, to a lesser extent, Bowser.
    • Principal Steinbeck from "Bowser Junior's Summer School" and "Bowser Junior's 1st Grade". He has a big opportunity to hurt or insult a student.
    • Mario is prone to this when around Jeffy.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Chas and Junior Jr., the offspring created from Chef Pee Pee and Cody's, and Chef Pee Pee and Junior's DNA by the Baby Machine respectively in "Chef Pee Pee's Kids".
  • Hate Sink:
    • David Winkle, Bowser Junior's perverted 1st grade teacher from Parts 2 and 3 fits this trope. A convicted sex offender, Mr. Winkle uses his job as an outlet for his sexual attraction towards children. Telling children to bring their underpants to school for a "science experiment," taking informal pictures of classmates to pleasure themselves to them, and blatantly raping a child in the bathroom will surely make your character unappealing to most people.
    • Nancy, Jeffy's extremely abusive mother.
  • Here We Go Again:
    • Subverted in "Bowser's Depression", in where Bowser goes into depression when his favorite show Charleyyy and Friends is cancelled and replaced with Fishy and Friends. Bowser eventually gets over it when he watches a video made by Junior and Chef Pee Pee, and later gives the latter show a chance and begins to like it, only for it to get cancelled. When it looks like Bowser is about to go into another breakdown, it is revealed Charleyyy and Friends was renewed, much to Bowser's relief.
    • In "Black Yoshi's In Trouble!", Mario spends the entire episode trying to turn Black Yoshi into a better person, due to Black Yoshi having a court date in where if he doesn't go straight in his personality, he will be sent to jail for life. When the court lets him go, Black Yoshi immediately reverts back to his old ways, much to Mario's dismay.
    • At the end of "Bowser Junior Loses Thomas!", Chef Pee Pee finds Junior's Thomas toy and gives it back to Junior. A few minutes later, Junior loses the dinosaur toy he played with at the beginning of the video and calls for Chef Pee Pee to help him find it.
    • In "Shrek's Diet!", Mario forces Shrek to go on a diet and go to the gym after Shrek's daily diet of cheesecake gave him a heart attack. At the end of the video while he and Mario eat cabbage salad, when it appears Shrek has finally accepted this healthier lifestyle, he grabs some cheesecake, eats it and gets fat again, much to Mario's disappointment.
    • At the end of "Bowser Junior's Broken Leg!", Chef Pee Pee beats Junior up to the point of breaking his left leg after finding out that he was lying about his right leg being broken.
    • In "Black Yoshi's Call of Duty: Black Ops III!", Mario finally buys Black Yoshi the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 PS4 bundle, only for Black Yoshi to tell Mario that he forgot the PlayStation Plus online subscription.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Cookies!", after a whole shenanigans full of sticky notes saying "cookies" all over the apartment and Chef Pee Pee raging, he finally goes to the store and brings cookies for Junior, only to find out that the kind of cookies were not what Junior wanted, and he really wants Chips Ahoy cookies. Junior then starts writing "Chips Ahoy" on the sticky notes and sticks them for a second time.
    Chef Pee Pee: Not again!
    • At the end of "Bowser Junior Gets Rabies!", a rabid Junior bites Chef Pee Pee, causing him to catch rabies from him, and he later gets the same symptoms Junior had from the disease. Junior and Cody do not care though and then start poking him with a stick.
    • The ending of "Bowser Junior's Package!" has Brooklyn T. Guy stealing Junior's gak. This results in Junior going into a rage, similar to when he accused his friends, Chef Pee Pee and Bowser of stealing his package throughout the entire video.
    • "Bowser Junior Stubs His Toe!" has Junior stubbing his toe on the table. This causes his left leg to be put in a cast and he ends up in a wheelchair. As a result, Junior goes into depression since he no longer can walk, but when Joseph and Cody point out he still has one good leg, Junior realizes he can still walk, and Joseph and Cody encourage him to get out of his wheelchair only for Junior to step on a LEGO brick, causing his other leg to be put in a cast.
    • In "Broken", after Ken falls down from the balcony, he breaks in half and "dies", causing Cody to go into depression. Having had enough of Cody crying and repeatedly saying "in half", Joseph and Junior decide to fix Ken, by managing to put Ken back together using his one piece tuxedo. They warn Cody not to take his clothes off, but later that night Cody decides to take a bath with Ken and takes off its clothes, causing Ken to break and "die" again. As a result, Cody goes into another depression.
    • In "The Ring", Mario buys a ring which he intends to use to propose to Rosalina, but when Rosalina arrives home early, he tells Jeffy, of all people, to hide the wedding ring. As Mario distracts Rosalina, Jeffy's hobby of throwing stuff causes him to lose the ring as it ends up in Shrek's homemade cheesecake. When Mario finds out what happened, he spends the entire episode trying to make Shrek poop, but when Chef Pee Pee shows Mario that Shrek didn't eat the ring, he and Mario clean it up, only for it to fall down the drain...
    • In "Forsaken", the sequel to "Broken", Cody assumes that Junior and Ken have a thing for each other, then he has Ken pick either him or Junior. Soon enough, Ken falls on Junior's lap and Cody is reduced to sobbing thinking that Ken no longer loves him. Later, Junior pretends he's breaking up with Ken, so that Cody can stop sobbing, and when Junior leaves the couch, Ken falls on Joseph's lap. Cody assumes Ken prefers Joseph and breaks down crying.
    Cody: My heart is broken...IN HALF!!!
    • In "The Bake Sale!", after Joseph gets all his bones and skeleton broken after falling from the roof, Junior and Cody try to bake cookies to sell them in order to raise money for Joseph's insurance, which is about $50,000, only for Junior to cause several consequences, including giving Chef Pee Pee half of the money if they manage to heal Joseph, getting into a freak accident which results in Chef Pee Pee getting third-degree burns all over his body, and buying $100 worth of cookies, thus raising the insurance up to a good $125,100. After they manage to get all the money for both Joseph and Chef Pee Pee, Junior tells Joseph and Cody if they want to go lay down in the middle of the road. Although Joseph and Cody survive, Junior ends up getting all his bones broken, as Joseph and Cody go to bake more cookies to pay for Junior's medical insurance.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.:
    • In "Bowser's Christmas Problem", Junior gets one after annoying Bowser to the point where he yells at him that Santa does not exist.
    • Chef Pee Pee has a breakdown at the end of "Bowser Junior's Caprisun".
    • Junior again in "The Christmas Special!" upon realizing that he didn't receive a golden Thomas the Tank Engine toy from Santa. Doesn't help that Chef Pee Pee and Bowser don't remember Junior demanding them for the toy.
    • Chef Pee Pee gets a second brief one in "Black Yoshi's Girlfriend Problem!" when Birdo makes a mess in the kitchen upon coughing up an egg. He recovers shortly after that.
  • Historical In-Joke: Jeffy has caused the killing of Harambe, as shown in "Jeffy Goes To The Zoo!". Additionally, Mario is heavily blamed for bad parenting despite convincing that it's the zoo's fault for having bad infrastructure.
  • Hollywood Restraining Order: In "Mario's New Girlfriend!", Mario gets a restraining order from Princess Peach, stating that he is not to go within five miles of her. When Peach drops by to pick up her missing thong, Mario asks her if she sent the restraining order by mistake, but Peach assures him that she meant to send it. At first, Mario is desperate to have Peach back, but with help from Black Yoshi, he starts dating Princess Rosalina, and the two continue dating in later episodes. Also in the same episode, Black Yoshi tells Mario that he has his own restraining order from his ex-girlfriend, stating he is not to go within six miles of her.
  • Huge Rider, Tiny Mount:
    • In Part 3 of the "Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventure" story arc, after Bowser successfully hatches a Yoshi, Mario coaxes the Yoshi to let him ride him, due to Bowser's immense size. Bowser is outraged, but Mario tells him to ride on one of his Koopas or Goombas. Bowser makes Chef Pee Pee carry him on his back, much to the latter's ire, the result of which makes the latter go into a coma.
    • In the episode, "Shrek's Crappy Wish", when a wish Shrek made turns Mario into a donkey, Shrek tricks Mario into giving him a ride to change him back to normal, the result of which breaks Mario's neck.
  • Humiliation Conga: "Cody's Revenge!" is this for Junior.
  • Hypochondria: Each time Bowser watches a Charleyyy and Friends skit where Charleyyy catches a disease of any sort, he winds up believing he has the aforementioned disease.
  • I Am Not Weasel:
    • Sonic the Hedgehog does not like being called a cat.
    • The crocodile from "Bowser Junior's Broccoli Problem!" doesn't like being called a alligator. He even had to show Junior and his friends the difference between an alligator and a crocodile just to prove it.
  • Identity Amnesia:
    • More or less done when Bowser Junior gets rabies and becomes a wild biting foaming creature, with no presence of his former identity or behavior during the duration of this (with an exception where he comes towards his golden Thomas toy only to get trapped).
    • This is done again in "Bowser Junior Gets His Nose Pierced!" after Junior gets his nose pierced and starts thinking that he looks like a bull. The result is, well, he starts acting like a bull. Him seeing Bowser and his pierced nose eventually snaps him out of it.
  • Idiot Ball: Bowser Junior makes a lot of bad decisions mainly due to his ignorance, but they rarely ever work out. Even when the stunt is outright dangerous, such as farting into a gas pump, he doesn't consider the ramifications which, in this case, was an explosion.
    • Toad hogs the ball whenever he's on screen.
    • The Brooklyn Guy, rarely. In "Chef Pee Pee Quits! Part 2", he isn't a really good cook since while attempting to microwave a pizza, he pressed Frozen Vegetable, and even decided to boil the pizza after the former didn't work.
  • Idiot Houdini:
  • Imaginary Friend: In "Bowser Junior's Imaginary Friend!", after finding out that his friends are too busy to play with him, Bowser Junior makes one up from his imagination and names him Gumbo, with the episode continuously switching between Junior's P.O.V. and reality. However, Junior later finds out that part of Gumbo's body disappears when he comes into contact with water, and when he tries to tell Chef Pee Pee, he accidentally sprays water all over Gumbo, disintegrating him. At the end of the episode, Chef Pee Pee is revealed to have an imaginary friend as well, named Lippy the Lion.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Mario. Though not necessarily a villain, he is stuck with Jeffy no matter what he tries to do, and even if he does bite back at Jeffy, his attempts to do so almost always fail. In the presence of Jeffy, Mario flanderizes into a Jerk with a Heart of Gold who tries to do the right thing but fails horribly, while Rosalina is more caring towards Jeffy than Mario and calls him out in the moment that he abuses Jeffy in any way. It doesn't help that most Jeffy episodes are more or less Mario torture porns, "Jeffy's Bad Word!" and "Locked Out" being the worst offenders.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in "Jeffy's Bad Word!", where some fans genuinely felt sorry for Mario due to him getting constantly harshly tortured far over his Butt-Monkey status, to the point where he gets considered a registered sex offender and a felon, and has Rosalina tell him off. What Mario did to receive all of this was spank Jeffy for saying the word "faggot". The fact that everyone surrounding Mario was no more than idiotic and stupid contributed to the situation.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Half of Rosalina's original dialogue is her screaming at the top of her lungs while sobbing so loudly and harshly that she nearly chokes in a few instances. All this because of either light pollution or the sun obscuring the stars. Nowadays, she doesn't do it that much.
  • Innocently Insensitive: In Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventures, after Mario rescues her, Peach tells Mario she loves him... like a brother. She doesn't mean it badly, but Mario doesn't take it very well.
  • Insane Troll Logic:
    • Toad's life runs on this.
      • During a Millionaire episode, he's asked how many wheels are on a unicycle. When he fails the question, he blames his logic on his dad being an alcoholic.
      Toad: Oh man. Geez, uh. Okay! So, uh, my dad was a truck driver. So, 'uni' means 'universe'. So, uh, oh geez. I guess eighteen, it's something like that, right?
      Brooklyn Guy: Eh-eighteen? Eh, are-are you sure that's your final answer? Hint-hint hint! Are-are you sure that's what you wanna go with?
      Toad: Yeah, I'm pretty sure, oh let me calculate. Um, you gotta be twenty one to drink too, so... yeah yeah yeah! It has to be eighteen, I know it!
      • Another example is in "Bowser Junior's Summer School 1". When Junior is panicking over his report card (he failed everything and got a B- in attendance), Toad reassures him that F isn't so bad because F also stands for Fantastic, Fabulous, Future, and Feliz Navidad. When Junior asks if he's sure, Toad tells him to think outside the box, duh!
    • Bowser Junior is completely convinced the Sun is a planet, much to Cody's disappointment, and puts this up as a Running Gag in almost all of his recent appearances. Unlike Rosalina, who says the same thing but is clearly off her rocket, Junior makes logical arguments which are entirely wrong such as the Sun being round and therefore being a planet. He actually even died when trying to go to the Sun to prove it.
      • In "Bowser Junior Needs Glasses!" when Cody points out that if he looks at the Sun he'll go blind, Jr's counter-argument is that when he looks at the Earth he doesn't go blind, and that he's going to wave to the man on the Sun (and not the Moon) just to prove him wrong. He then goes legally blind, and claims Cody put a flashlight on the telescope that was so powerful it blinded him.
      • In "Cody's Sister!", he believes the Earth is flat, and claims that it is "how God sees the world". Joseph and Cody initially don't believe him at first, but Joseph later falls for it after Junior says that they could agree that "a basketball is round, but a basketball court is flat".
    • When it comes to math, Jeffy believes that 2+2=2 because both 2s fall in love and make a baby 2, 8-4=8 because the 4 is taken away, and 0+0=2 because there are two zeroes that don't love each other. He even curses his helmet, his pencil, his diaper, and various scientists while saying it is correct. And by the end of the video, the entire world believes him, and it is even named "Jeffy's Law of Subtraction".
  • Interspecies Romance:
    • In "Mario's Wig", Princess Peach hooks up with Sonic the Hedgehog, much to Mario's annoyance.
    • In "Black Yoshi's Girlfriend Problem!", after Delilah breaks up with Black Yoshi, she hooks up with Popeye.
  • Iris Out: "Black Yoshi's Girlfriend Problem!" ends with this.
  • It's Pronounced Tro-PAY: In "The Ouija Board!", Cody and Chef Pee Pee pronounce the word "Ouija" as Oui-jee, but Junior pronounces it as Oh-ja.
  • Jerkass: Several characters come across as such.
    • Bowser, who abuses his own son for pleasure and treats his personal chef like dirt.
    • Junior is also one as when he's playing with Joseph and Cody, he'll throw a fit if he doesn't get his way.
    • Chef Pee Pee can sometimes be downright rude towards Junior and his friends, though Junior himself also qualifies as a Jerkass, and usually starts it.
    • Brooklyn T. Guy can be this, as well. One example is when he complains to Mario about his ex-wife snoop husband named "Dave", and Mario briefly apologizes as a result. He also sometimes refuses to help Mario with his problem of the week.
    • Mario has started to become this in later videos, especially in the Jeffy episodes where he is pushed to an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain who tries to get rid of Jeffy but fails every time. Granted Jeffy's obnoxious behavior can usually get on most peoples' nerves, but still.
    • Peach is also a big one for divorcing Mario just because he's bald.
    • Jeffy. He always tortures Mario, throwing a fit whenever he wants stuff, and since "Smart Jeffy" has become very diligent and foul-mouthed, almost always asking "ARE YOU FUCKING HIGH?!" whenever his hopes are thwarted. He even conned Mario into giving him money. Twice.
  • Kill 'em All: "The Ouija Board!" ends with the Ouija demon killing Junior and Joseph, who were the only two survivors at the time.
  • Kill It with Water: What ultimately disintegrates Gumbo from existence in "Bowser Junior's Imaginary Friend!", though it was just an accident caused by Chef Pee Pee.
  • Knight of Cerebus:
    • David Winkle, the perverted child molester. Though he does have his moments of Laughably Evil.
    • Nancy, Jeffy's biological mother, is played seriously in her debut episode "Jeffy's Parents!", unlike several other antagonists. She is an alcoholic child abuser who beats Jeffy, and purposefully abandons him.
  • Know-Nothing Know-It-All: Bowser Junior, in regards to his theory that the Sun is a planet.
    • Jeffy in "Jeffy's Homework!" claims 8 minus 4 to be eight because the four is taken away, and even curses his helmet, his pencil, his diaper and various scientists while doing so.
    • Toad has some moments, as does Chris the Cucumber.
  • Large Ham: Bowser, especially in his Bowser Juice commercial.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Bowser notes that Charleyyy is jumping into a pool that looks exactly like his own pool. Nothing else is said about it.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "Bowser Junior's Summer School 4", Bowser Junior fakes being sick to skip school. Their teacher Jackie Chu decides to give out cupcakes and cookies for all the class, along with no homework that night. While Junior gets a beating when he's caught playing Minecraft when he should have been in bed.
  • Leitmotif:
    • Italian music can be heard whenever Chef Pee Pee appears.
    • Bowser has a dramatic violin tune.
    • Bowser Junior has a children's-style cheerful theme.
    • Black Yoshi's is rap music.
    • Jeffy has a goofy piano theme. This would occasionally play whenever Jeffy would do something Mario and Rosalina don't like, such as ruining their adult-time or pooping in the sink.
    • Mario and his friends have a classical jazz theme.
    • Hansel, the hobo from "Mario's Hobo Problem!" has a bluegrass theme for his drunken shenanigans.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: "SuperPowers!" has Junior, Joseph and Cody getting struck by lightning and gaining superpowers as a result.
  • Loan Shark: A dolphin is one of these, being called a Loan Dolphin.
  • Locked in a Room: In "The Elevator!", Junior, Joseph, and Cody get stuck in an elevator on their way to a meet and greet hosted by Doofy the Dragon.
  • Locked in the Bathroom: In "Shrek's Bath Problem!", Mario is trapped in the bathroom with Shrek, who called him over in the first place because he pooped in the bathtub. The Brooklyn Guy shows up as a locksmith, but the lock is too complicated for him to figure out, so Toad slips a mini mushroom under the door, causing Mario to shrink and get out from under the door. At the end of the episode, Shrek opens the door easily by jiggling the doorknob.
  • Love Epiphany: In "Mario's Valentine's Day Problem!", he starts off the day with Rosalina as intended, but then the girl he's always loved, Peach, shows up and wants him back. He has Rosalina hide (using various excuses) and wait for him while he tries to have a (very brief) Valentine's Day with Peach. After only a few minutes of putting up with her, it occurs to Mario that Peach really isn't everything he wanted and she doesn't appreciate anything he does, and that he has a good thing with Rosalina who seems to have a good time with him no matter what they do. He kicks Peach out, apologizes to Rosalina (who had no idea that any of this happened), and proceeds to have a small Valentine's Day dinner where he sits there and appreciates Rosalina's quirky personality.
    Rosalina: What's going on?
    Mario: Well, you see... um... I'm just a big idiot and I'm stupid and... I didn't realize that you were the most amazing girl in the world, and I would be stupid to lose you and, that's why I got you this card. (hands her a Star Wars card)
    A few moments later
    Mario: You're just, you're the most amazing girl in the world baby, and... I don't ever want to lose you!
  • Love Potion: In "The Love Potion!", Cody invents a love serum for Junior to inject into Britknee, the newest student, to get her to fall in love with him. However, there are two catches; once injected, she falls in love with the first person she sees (who happens to be Jeffy), and after a few hours, the serum turns her into a dragon.
  • The Magic Touch: In "Bowser Junior's Curse!", Junior refuses to eat his corn dogs and tosses them out the window, and as a result, the Corn Dog God curses him with the corn dog curse, wherein everything he touches turns into a corn dog.
  • Mistaken for an Imposter: In "Jeffy's Tantrum!", Mario refuses to buy Jeffy a Spongebob Squarepants game on the App Store with his credit card number, leaving Jeffy to run away. The doorbell then rings, and Mario comes across who appears to be Jeffy wearing Groucho Marx glasses, asking for his credit card number. Mario thinks it really is Jeffy, so he refuses to tell him his credit card number, and tells him he's not fooled by his disguise. The Groucho Marx Jeffy tells Mario he doesn't know what he's talking about, and the real Jeffy shows up, asking Mario who the guy who looks like him is.
  • Mistaken for Cheating: The ending of "Jeffy's Cellphone!" has Jeffy calling a prostitute, telling her his name is Mario, and asking her to touch his "pee-pee" for five dollars. The prostitute shows up a few seconds later and tells Mario they talked on the phone, confusing Mario and Rosalina. After the prostitute tells Mario she's going to touch his "pee-pee" for five dollars, an angry Rosalina thinks he's cheating on her and beats Mario up.
  • Mood Whiplash:
    • In "Cody's Revenge!", Cody tells Junior to say that the Sun is a star and not a planet, in order for him to stop blackmailing him. Just when it looks like Junior is starting to admit that it's actually a star, he suddenly shouts that it's a planet and snaps due to all the misery Cody did to him.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Piggy Bank!", when Junior goes to admit that he broke Bowser's piggy bank:
      Bowser Junior: Well, um...it wasn't my dad's piggy bank that turned into a real pig.
      Brooklyn T. Guy: Oh, what was it?
      Bowser Junior: Well...um...it was Cody's mom.
  • Muppet: The non-plush characters.
  • My Little Panzer:
    • In "Bowser Junior Goes to Disney World", Doofy advertises Doofy-O's cereal, with a knife as the prize that wins them a trip to Disney World inside specially marked boxes.
    • In "Bowser Junior's 7th Birthday!" Chef Pee Pee buys Junior a "Can You Kill Doofy?" party game, complete with a real knife to pin on Doofy.
    • In "Bowser's Driver's License", during a Doofy the Dragon-themed McDonald's commercial, as if the burger with nails, broken glass, and a mouse trap wasn't bad enough, Doofy also advertises nine-millimeter guns as Happy Meal toys.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Game Night 3", when Junior, Joseph, Cody, and Jeffy play "What's in Ned's Head?", Jeffy manages to find a real loaded gun in Ned's head. Junior and Cody even question why someone would put it in a children's board game.
  • N-Word Privileges: In "Bowser Junior's YouTube Channel!", Junior gets punched in the eye by one black man, punched in the other eye by another in his closet, and then beaten into a wheelchair by Chef Pee Pee all because of this. He states he heard the word in a rap song and just wanted to use it, not realizing the implications behind saying it to strangers and people who dislike you.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: From "The Secret Door!", we have Does Bad Things Guy, a relative of Brooklyn T. Guy.
    • This also gets played with in the form of an inversion; Does Good Things Guy. He's also a relative of Brooklyn T. Guy, albeit one that doesn't resemble him.
  • Nerds Love Tough Schoolwork:
    • Cody gets super excited whenever Jackie Chu assigns a super hard homework assignment.
  • Never My Fault:
    • Shrek blames Mario for his own faults, such as clogging up the toilet and using all the toilet paper.
    • In "Bowser's Goldfish!", after Toad flushes Bowser's pet goldfish, Charleyyy Jr., down the toilet, and CJ doesn't come back up, Toad blames Junior for not having a brand new toilet with a fish-catching mechanism.
    • In "Jeffy's Bedtime!", Jeffy blames his pooping his pants on the (nonexistent) monster who lives under his bed.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Nintendo 3DS", Junior blames his broken 2DS on Brooklyn T. Guy, despite Junior breaking it in the first place.
    • In "Jeffy Sleepwalks!", Jeffy blames his mess in the kitchen and trail of Froot Loops leading to his bed on Mario of all people. He is also completely convinced that he did not mess up the living room. He is technically telling the truth as he admits he never was sleepwalking, he was just trying to see all of the things he could do with his eyes closed.
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: Pretty much every scene involving the Brooklyn Guy who always has a new job every episode. Amongst a few have been electrician, lizard wrestler, police officer, driving instructor, firefighter, construction worker, host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, military sergeant, and fly killer.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Doofy the Dragon setting himself on fire in "Bowser's House Fire!"? The cause of Bowser Junior burning his house down and having to live in a new home.
    • Also "Bowser Junior's Broccoli Problem!". The whole plot started just because Junior had to flush his broccoli down the toilet.
    • Toad literally breaks Tony and Chad's egg in "Replacement Egg". He tries getting another egg out from the fridge, only to break it as well. Guess what he does next.
    • And then there's Bowser Junior's Summer School. Chef Pee Pee caused the whole series in the first place just by telling Bowser his son scribbled on his report card. It got worse for Pee Pee himself as he had to drive Junior to school every day and make him French fries for breakfast following the incident. Let's not forget the fact that he got mad over letting Junior pour the milk when making cereal.
    • In "The President's Chef!", Junior steals the Declaration of Independence. Then he gets it wet and rips it.
    • In "The Ouija Board!", Junior and Joseph end up insulting the Ouija demons, and they get back at the trio by possessing Cody's Ken toy.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!", Junior gets hold of Bowser's old clown car, despite Bowser warning him not to play with it, and accidentally shatters the table with a cannonball. His attempts to fix it only make the problem worse (doesn't help that he believes he fixed the table), and at the end, he is sent to military school.
  • Nice, Mean, and In-Between:
    • Respectively, Cody is the nice one for being smart, sane and calm, the mean one is downplayed with Junior since he can sometimes throw a fit when he plays with Joseph and Cody along with being cruel to Cody at times, and Joseph is in-between due to sometimes being the sanest at times and having an arrogant attitude along with being rude to Cody by calling him weird and making fun of him with Junior.
    • The Bowser Junior, Bowser and Chef Pee Pee trio follow this trope too, but this time, Junior's role is different; Junior is the nice one who likes to play with toys and annoys Bowser and Chef Pee Pee, where it's Bowser who's the mean one for yelling at Chef Pee Pee nonstop and causing additional chores for him, beating Junior up and being a trademark Jerkass while Chef Pee Pee mediates in-between where he's smarter than Bowser and Junior and being much saner than them, but can sometimes act grumpy towards them when they annoy him, even though Bowser and Junior both start it.
    • The Rosalina, Jeffy, and Mario trio also follow this trope; Rosalina is the nice one for treating Jeffy with respect and sticking up for him if Mario abuses him in any way, Jeffy is the mean one for throwing temper tantrums and generally annoying Mario, and Mario is the in-between one for being the Straight Man who disciplines Jeffy when he misbehaves.
  • Nightmare Sequence: Junior has one in "Bowser Junior's Flu Shot!".
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: In "Cody's Missing!", Cody becomes "Metal Baby Cat Cody" (which consists of him wearing a cat suit and tin foil pants, and sucking on a pacifier) in response to Nintendo using Metal, Baby, and Cat versions of existing characters as filler for its Mario sports games instead of him. He later creates his own game, Cody!, wherein Metal Baby Cat Cody is one of the many playable variations of him.
  • No Animals Were Harmed:
    • In "Bowser's Goldfish!", Logan did use a real goldfish in almost every scene, but used editing to simulate it flushing down the toilet. He ends the episode showing both fish, saying they weren't harmed, and displaying the typical image.
    • In "Jeffy's Pet!", Logan used a real hamster for Jeffy's pet hamster, Melvin/Pee Pee Suck 2. In The Stinger, he revealed that he used a stuffed animal in place of the hamster for the scene where Junior tossed Melvin/Pee Pee Suck 2 down the stairs.
  • No Dialogue Episode: Most of the first half of "Bowser Junior's Nerf War!" is this.
  • No Fourth Wall: The characters seem to be aware that they are in YouTube videos as shown in "Cool Cody!" and "Evil Chef Pee Pee!". Since the channel hit its 1,000,000 subscriber milestone, this escalated Up to Eleven, to the point where it copies the related Running Gags from Taz-Mania.
  • No Ending:
    • You would expect "Chef Poo Poo's Kitchen Disaster!" to end with the characters cleaning up the mess, but no, you get Margaret appreciating the mess, Brooklyn T. Guy arriving and part-stripping himself, and to top it all off, Margaret telling everyone if they can take her clothes off. And the mess hasn't been cleaned up yet.
    • "Cody's Sister!" ends with Junior and Joseph angrily suggesting to end the video after finding out that Cody's sister Katy already has a girlfriend, a "limited edition, never been open, 50th anniversary, summertime Barbie". They don't even say goodbye to her before she leaves for Wisconsin, and she still remains at their house.
    • "The Cat in the Hat" ends with the titular character's head exploding from trying to think of a rhyme for "orange", and Junior wondering who's going to clean up the mess the Cat made. Cody points out to Junior that the Cat usually cleans up his messes after he makes them, but since the Cat's dead, he can't do that. He then asks Junior when he's going to military school, and the episode promptly ends.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Principal Steinbeck beats the heck out of Toad all over a paper ball. On a related additional note, Toad screams as Steinbeck punches and even elbow drops Toad.
  • No Name Given: The Brooklyn Guy, who claims his name really isn't important. In "Bowser Junior Loses Thomas!", he works as a Toys R Us employee. When Chef Pee Pee asks him where his name tag is, he states that he doesn't have a name tag because he doesn't have a name. As of "Bowser Junior Goes To Military School! Part 1" and "Jeffy's Stupid Home Video!", he now goes by Brooklyn T. Guy.
  • Non Sequitur: Junior gives out a few lines of this after he gets rabies.
    "I couldn't pick my nose if I wanted to—my arms are too short..."
    "Guys! Guys. They don't sell--they don't sell pancakes at Waffle House..."
    "(weird Innocent Innuendo noises)"
    "I'm kicking my ass! DO YOU MIND?!"
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket:
    • Subverted: Chef Pee Pee slaps his jacket in "Bowser's Salad Wrap", opening its buttons and revealing he has no shirt behind it. Bowser Jr. turns away in disgust; his father admits he's too sexy.
    • At the end of "Chef Poo Poo's Kitchen Disaster!", Brooklyn T. Guy is suggested to strip himself. He only does it part way, with his jacket slightly open for the rest of the ending.
  • Nothing Left to Do but Die: Bowser Junior hanged himself upon getting a 10-minute "staying in the corner" punishment.
    • He also tried waiting for a train to run him over after losing his Thomas toy. The toy turned out to be behind the couch the whole time.

     O-U 
  • Obfuscating Disability: In "Bowser Junior's Broken Leg!", Bowser Junior breaks his leg and spends three weeks in bed waiting for it to heal, with Chef Pee Pee bringing him whatever he wants. After it heals, he pretends his leg is still broken to continue to get free stuff from Chef Pee Pee, despite a warning not to from Brooklyn T. Guy. This comes back to bite him two weeks later, when Doofy the Dragon hosts a meet and greet at the mall, which Junior wants to go to. After Junior admits to Chef Pee Pee that he's been lying about his leg for the last two weeks, Chef Pee Pee beats him up, breaking his other leg.
  • Obvious Stunt Double: If you look closely on the stunt Bowser in "Bowser Loses A Tooth!", you'll see that it is shaped more like the old Bowser plush of which Logan lost, and the skin surrounding Bowser's mouth is lighter than that of the main Bowser plush.
  • Offscreen Teleportation: In "Cody The Magician!", Joseph shows up at Junior's door, and the two are surprised Cody isn't there. When Junior asks where Cody is, Joseph admits Cody just appears when he knocks on Junior's door. The two sit there confused, and don't bring it up when Cody appears moments later.
  • Off with His Head!:
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Mass "Oh, Crap!": Mario, Junior, Brooklyn T. Guy, and Chef Pee Pee at the end of "The Golden Egg!", after realizing that not only Jeffy found the egg, but also wished for the egg, essentially making the one wish useless. As a result, they all beat him up to death.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Big Mess!", Toad using his Insane Troll Logic tricks Junior into thinking the Diet Coke and Mentos trick wouldn't make a mess. Junior freaks out when he realizes what he has done.
    • Mario gains this reaction in "Mario's Hobo Problem!" after seeing how big of a mess Shrek made with the toilet, and he is so disgusted and shocked he is literally unable to say a word.
      • Also happens with Chef Pee Pee and Brooklyn T. Guy in the same episode.
      • Subverted with Hansel and Shrek, the only ones in the video who don't appear to scream, or even make sea lion-like noises, at the mess.
    • Mario's reaction in "Where's Jeffy?" to Rosalina telling him where she put her necklace: around Jeffy's neck. Mario isn't a bit too thrilled to hear it.
  • One-Shot Character: A large range of one shot characters is associated with the series; Stacy and her unnamed sister, the Alternate Dimension counterparts from Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures (excluding Alternate Mama Luigi), SpongeBob, Dora, Crusty, Stinky, Remy, Gumbo, Katy, D-Money the boxer, Feebee, the list goes on.
  • One Steve Limit: There are two characters named "D-Money" in the series; a gangster kid who is one of Bowser Junior's classmates in the first gradenote , and a boxer who is Rosalina's ex-boyfriend. Fans on the SML Wiki have referred to the former as D-Money Junior, and the latter as D-Money Senior.
  • Only Sane Man:
    • Mario is just about one of the only main normal people on the show.
    • Chef Pee Pee also qualifies, in comparison to Bowser and Junior.
    • Brooklyn T. Guy is one of the few puppets who's actually not a moron.
    • Joseph is the only kid who isn't a total moron like Junior or a pervert like Toad and Cody. However, Cody is the wisest and most level-headed compared to the two.
    • Female example: Emily Coleman (Patrick's sister) is one of the few of Bowser Junior's classmates in the Bowser Junior's 1st Grade! series who has some common sense and maturity.
  • The Ophelia: Rosalina is not what one would call sane, but she's still treated as being adorable or cute by Mario even if she does get annoying.
  • Overly Long Gag: In "Bowser Junior's Cookies!", Junior goes into a Broken Record speech after Chef Pee Pee fails to notice his sticky note on the refrigerator, and therefore forgets about having to buy cookies for him.
    Junior: He didn't see it...he didn't see it...he didn't see it...he didn't see it...he didn't see it...he just didn't see it...he didn't see it...
  • Parental Abandonment:
    • Bowser may be in the other room, but he rarely does anything to help Junior if it doesn't directly help himself as well. He beats his child for screwing up and screams at Chef PeePee, but beyond that he refuses to help his kid with homework, refuses to get his kid food, refuses to be around his son in general due to 'not liking him', and even admitted at one point he didn't even really want him.
    • In "Mario the Babysitter!", Jeffy's real parents left Jeffy for Mario to take care of, and have yet to return for him. Mario, who has since become Jeffy's Parental Substitute, has also tried to do this to him multiple times, and failed.
  • Parental Substitute:
    • Because Bowser is usually in the other room watching Charleyyy and Friends, Chef Pee Pee is usually the one watching his son, Junior.
    • Mario has become this to Jeffy in all of Jeffy's appearances (excluding "Bowser Junior's Playtime 4", "Pokémon Part 6", "Bowser Junior's Game Night 4", and "The Dog Show!"), because Jeffy's real parents were too annoyed by him and didn't want to deal with him any further.
  • Perpetual Expression: Just about every plush and puppet character in the show has the same expression, with the exception of custom thumbnails, the second half of "Bowser Junior's All Nighter!", "Bowser Junior's Nerf War!", and a certain point in "Where's Jeffy?".
  • Perpetual Smiler: Mr. Winkle is always cheerful and authentic about the situation, even when he's about to get arrested by Goodman.
  • Pilot: "The Bird" is a pilot for Black Yoshi and the Birds.
    • "Bowser Junior's Homework" ended up leading to Bowser Junior's Summer School.
    • "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!" and "Cody's Revenge!" serve as the pilots for the Bowser Junior Goes To Military School! mini-series.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy:
    • In "Cody's Sister!", Cody's twin sister, Katy wears a pink shirt and hat, while her brother wears a blue shirt and hat.
    • In "Jeffy's Sister!", Jeffy's imaginary sister, Feebee, wears a pink shirt and helmet, while Jeffy wears a blue helmet and a yellow shirt.
  • Please Wake Up: Junior in "The Magical Button!", upon finding out that Chef Pee Pee and Bowser are dead due to him pressing the titular button for wishes.
  • Potty Emergency:
    • In "Bowser Junior's Punishment!", Charleyyy has one in an episode of Charleyyy and Friends that Bowser is watching. Unfortunately, someone (presumably Shrek) is already in the bathroom. Charleyyy then improvises by using the litter box.
    Charleyyy: If cats can do it, I can, too!
    • Bowser Junior has one in "The Elevator!", which sets the episode's main plot in motion. He eventually relieves himself in a cup he found on the floor, much to the disgust of Joseph and Cody. And he nearly gets close to drinking it.
    • Junior has one in "Life Is Ruff!", when he is in Chompy's body. He tries to tell Chef Pee Pee to let him out, but Chef Pee Pee is unable to understand him. Chef Pee Pee ends up scaring him and making him pee on the floor.
    • Jeffy has one at the beginning of "Jeffy Gets Stung By A Bee!", and acts like a dog so he can get Chef Pee Pee to take him outside to poop, which sets the episode's plot in motion.
  • Potty Failure: Jeffy tends to soil his pants all the time, and because his diaper is taped over his pants, it stays clean while his pants get dirty. "Jeffy Gets Potty Trained!" focuses on Mario and Rosalina's unsuccessful attempts to potty-train him to prevent future accidents.
  • Prison Rape
    • Bubbles in Season 1 and 2 of Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures (in the first season he looks like Wario, in the second one he is a black dude) to Mario.
      • In the first season, Mama Luigi enjoys getting raped by Bubbles.
    • Bubbles returns in Bowser Junior's Summer School, where he rapes Pixie Goblin/Link twice. He also gets mentioned frequently by Officer Goodman.
  • The Problem with Licensed Games: In-universe example with Charleyyy and Friends: The Video Game, from the episode, "Bowser's Video Game". The game's atmosphere and humor are both very accurate to the show it's based on. However, despite being advertised as an M rated game, it lacks a lot of the advertised adult content. The game also suffers from unresponsive controls, Charleyyy loses health from such things as not having any mail in his mailbox and not having any gas in his car, there are tons of loading screens, and as proven by Bowser Junior, the game can be beaten in ten minutes, complete with an A Winner Is You ending.
  • Product Placement: Various. Apple, Sony, Microsoft, Chevrolet, Chips Ahoy, Kool-Aid, Thomas the Tank Engine, McDonald's, Crayola, Oreo, Zebra Cakes, Buffalo Wild Wings, Monster Energy, 5-Hour Energy, Red Bull, A&W, Hershey's, Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Mentos, Kraft, Rockin' Rider Legend, Ice Age The Meltdown, Barbie, Five Nights at Freddy's, the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on...
  • Put on a Bus: Brooklyn T. Guy since "Stuck in a Tree", which was his first appearance, until he returned at the end of "Bowser Junior's Summer School 5".
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: In Shrek's diet, Shrek's blood is tested after he has a heart attack. The doctor notes his blood is cheese because he eats way too much cheesecake, and that he has so much diabetes that he has built an immunity to the diabetes because of the massive amount of diabetes he has.
  • Reality Ensues:
    • Invoked by NASA in "Bowser Junior Goes To The Sun!". Having enough of Junior saying that the Sun is a planet, they were willing to spend millions to prepare a space shuttle and invite him to travel there then "prove" the public wrong.
    • Jeffy was most likely dropped off at Mario's door because his parents were annoyed and offended by him and didn't want to deal with him anymore.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Bowser is apparently 312.
  • The Remake: "The Koopalings!" is a remake of "The Koopa Kids!", only subverted since it is far from a remake. It doesn't feature Shelia Perkins, the plot is completely different, the video features Joseph, Cody, Screwball, Hansel from "Mario's Hobo Problem!" and a new female character named Crystal, five people who didn't appear in the original video, and the Koopalings are known by their canon names.
  • Reset Button: In "The Past Machine!", after summoning two meteors, believing that they will only kill a T-Rex that he brought into the present, Junior uses the titular machine to reset not just the video, but the entire Universe itself. By bringing back the BIG BANG.
  • Retcon: Unhappy with the original Koopalings video and unable to film the sequel since he is no longer at his parents' home, Logan decided to completely remake the Koopalings episode, going through a completely different plot and keeping their personalities, but retaining their Nintendo canon names rather than the names he made up for them in the original Koopaling episode. As such, the original Koopalings video, including Bowser's ex-wife Sheila Perkins, is now non-canon.
  • Repetitive Name: Jeffy's full name is "Jeffy Jeffy". Really.
  • Revenge: "Cody's Revenge!" has Cody blackmailing Junior with a picture of a broken bowl of Raisin Bran he took on his phone as revenge for all the things he did to him.
  • Rhymes on a Dime: The Cat in the Hat from the episode of the same name. He explains to Junior that it's a pain for him to always rhyme, but he gets paid for every rhyme he makes. At the end of the episode, his head explodes when he tries to think of a rhyme for "Orange".
  • Running Gag: Want to know how much? Look here.
  • Sarcasm Mode: In "Bowser Junior's Homework":
    Chef Pee Pee: I know! Maybe you should get that little stupid cucumber to help you on your exam since he knows everything! Maybe he can help you cheat!
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!:
    • Cody has done this multiple times so far, with examples being "Bowser Junior's Credit Card!" and "Evil Chef Pee Pee!".
    • In "The New House!", Brooklyn T. Guy shows the gang the new house room-by-room. When he reveals to them a bedroom with a TV, Bowser immediately orders everyone to get out so he can watch Charleyyy, and even punches Mario unconscious.
  • Self-Deprecation:
    • In part one of "Bowser Junior's Summer School", Logan is one of the students in summer school, and Jackie Chu gives him a book called "YouTube for Dummies" and calls him dumb.
    • In "Bowser Junior's 1st Grade! Part 4", a puppet version of Logan says that he wants to make YouTube videos when he grows up. Jackie Chu calls the idea dumb.
    • In "Bowser Junior's YouTube Channel!", after watching one of their fake pranks on YouTube, Junior and his friends notice a comment from SuperMarioLogan himself saying that it was "fake and gay", and Junior calls him "stupid".
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Cody and Joseph.
  • Series Fauxnale: The Season 2 finale of Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures serves as this, now that the Season 3 premiere has already been released.
  • Sequel Hook: The ending of "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!" has made fans wonder if a Bowser Junior's Military School series is going to be made.
    Bowser: Don't-don't scream, Chef Pee Pee. His ass's going to military school.
    • It is going to happen eventually. Heck, a comment on the SML Wiki actually mentions Logan and dabhdude (a YouTuber who does reviews and reactions on SML's videos and regularly uploads livestreams) have talked about the series as a possibility.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: Being a retarded handicapped child, Jeffy is bigger in size than Mario is compared to Mario himself, who is relatively smart, tells the truth and fails to make people believe him.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sibling Seniority Squabble: In "Cody's Sister!", Cody is revealed to be twelve seconds older than his twin sister, Katy.
  • Sick Episode:
    • "Bowser Junior's Sickness". Enough said.
    • "Chef PeePee Gets Sick!" as well.
    • Jackie Chu is revealed to be sick in "Substitute Teacher!", and Judy, Cody's mom, is revealed to be the substitute teacher.
  • Spoiled Brat: Bowser Jr. demands everything, often the demands he makes are ridiculous, unusual, or inconvenient, and when he doesn't get his way, he screams at the top of his lungs and begs until he does. It may be that he doesn't let people play with certain toys, demands specific foods they don't have, or just generally torments Chef PeePee while seeing himself as doing nothing wrong despite being a horrible person.
    Bowser Jr.: I WANT A HAPPY MEAL!!!!!!!!
    • It probably doesn't help that his father is even worse, often demanding food and telling Chef PeePee that he has five minutes to do it or else he will kill him. Luckily, Bowser is really bad at keeping time.
  • Shaped Like Itself: What Junior says about the Earth being flat in "Cody's Sister!".
  • Show Within a Show:
    • Charleyyy and Friends and Doofy the Dragon.
    • There's also two Channels Within a Show: Manly TV and Lifetime.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Charleyyy and Doofy are responsible for major plot elements in a few videos including "Bowser's House Fire!", "Pop Rocks and Coke!", "Bowser Junior's Big Mess!" and "Black Yoshi's Job".
  • Snap Back: Usually subverted whenever a major event happens, such as the characters moving to a new house.
  • Social Services Does Not Exist: A major issue in "Joseph's House!". Ever since Joseph's mom died on October 31, 2015, he's had to live in the dark due to no one paying the bills, he has no running water, his pet fish and dog are dead, he has to steal money from his Mom to pay for food, he has to imagine what video game to play whenever he plays his Xbox One, his dad is a zombie (and becomes a ghost not long after), and Screwball the Clown is his only roommate and living companion, but doesn't do anything to pay the bills.
  • Something Completely Different: Subverted; nowadays the only main characters in recent videos are Bowser, Bowser Junior, Chef PeePee, Joesph, Cody, Mario, Rosalina, and Jeffy compared to SML's first plush movies.
  • Spell My Name with an "S":
    • Charleyyy's name is spelled with three "Y's".
    • In "Black Yoshi's Girlfriend Problem!", Yoshimeet.com, a dating website for Yoshis, is always referred to in-universe as "Yoshimeet.com with two E's." At one point in the episode, Black Yoshi logs onto "Yoshimeat.com", and is horrified by what he sees (which isn't shown to the viewers).
  • Stalker With a Crush: Mario's major flaw is that he is a creeper towards women, especially Peach.
  • Status Quo Is God: Despite "Jeffy Parents!" ending with Jeffy promising to behave better, Jeffy still acts like he usually does in the following videos.
  • Stealth Pun: When Junior is worried about getting more bad luck, he's warned about a black cat crossing his path.
    Junior: (passes through Logan's cat Precious) Oh no, a cat! (he notices it's a multi-colored tabby) Well, at least it's not a black cat.
    Precious: Wassup nigga?
    Junior: (screams) Oh no! (runs away)
  • Stock "Yuck!":
    • Four words: Jeffy hates green beans.
    • Bowser Junior hates broccoli, as revealed in "Bowser Junior's Broccoli Problem!". When he tried to flush it down the toilet, it only just made things worse.
    • Bowser is also revealed to hate vegetable casserole and red apples, in "Bowser's Broken TV" and "Bowser Loses A Tooth!" respectively.
    • Jeffy is sometimes shown to not like peas, for example in "Jeffy Gets Potty Trained!", and he is also revealed to have a bratty side as he claims he wants marshmallows instead of peas.
  • Straight Man: Mario being the Only Sane Man in his household, alongside Chef Pee Pee and Junior's friend Cody.
  • Take That!:
    • From "Black Yoshi's Job'':
    Announcer: "Call of Duty fans, go pre-order the new Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare! There's absolutely nothing different compared to the last Call of Duty, but we're gonna make a ton of money!"
    • In "Evil Bowser", after suffering Villain Decay, Bowser decides to summon the Devil to help him get his evil back. He does so by singing the "Evil Devil Chant", which is actually the "I Love You" song.
    • In "Luigi's Mansion Part 5", there's even one to his haters. They're shown, along with George W. Bush and others, as some of the worst people on Earth.
    • "Chef Pee Pee Gets Sick!" and "Bowser Junior's Playtime 3" feature take thats to The Good Dinosaur for being short, its nonsensical plot, and not living up to the same standards as Pixar's previous film, Inside Out.
    • In "Cody's Revenge!", when Bowser threatens to send Junior to Military School, one of the punishments the Brooklyn Guy says he's going to give to Junior is to make him watch Big Hero 6. Junior says that Big Hero 6 is the worst animated feature since Cars 2. This gets Bowser to reconsider.
    • In "Jeffy's Favorite Song!", Mario gets Jeffy an iPhone 7 after breaking his old iPhone, and proclaims that Jeffy only agrees to use it if he uses headphones. He then finds out to his horror that it doesn't have a headphone jack, resulting in him being forced to listen to the Bunny Do song.
  • Tap on the Head:
    • Mario and Bowser Junior both once suffered a hit to the head with a hammer from Chef Pee Pee, in "Mario's Beautiful Date!" and "Bowser Junior Needs Glasses!", respectively.
    Cody: Night-night!
    • One of the criminals in "Home Alone 2" gets knocked unconscious with a crowbar.

    (cut to Junior and Joseph completely tired and exhausted)
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech:
    • In "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday", Chef Pee Pee gives this speech to Bowser and Junior after they throw him a crappy birthday party:
    Chef Pee Pee: Really, is this what my birthday consists of? Come on, Bowser, you can do better than this! Come on, really?
    Bowser: Stop being ungrateful, Chef Pee Pee! We all tried really hard, okay?
    Chef Pee Pee: Well, you didn't try hard enough! I swear, you guys suck! This is the worst birthday ever!
    Junior: Wait! Dad, he didn't like the gifts we gave him?
    Chef Pee Pee: No, I didn't like the gifts, they were horrible! [To Junior] You took yours back, [To Bowser] and you gave me a spatula! Oh, I wonder what you gave me a spatula for...
    Bowser: Obviously to cook, duh!
    Chef Pee Pee: Of course!
    Junior: What else would you do with a spatula, Chef Pee Pee? You cook with it!
    Chef Pee Pee: You guys are selfish! [To Bowser] You buy me something to help you, [To Junior] and you take yours back and you spend my birthday money on a video game!
    Junior: But the video game's fun!
    Chef Pee Pee: You know what? F*BLEEP* you guys! Don't talk to me for the rest of the day, okay? Know what? The rest of the month! Even better, the rest of the year! I'm so sick of you guys! You guys think of yourself and only you!
    Chef Pee Pee: I hate you, I hate you because you're an annoying little brat! All you do is come in the kitchen, bother me, while I'm cooking, and then you bring the toys in there like I wanna play with you, but I'm not a child! I don't have time for that! I have to wash dishes! And all you do is make messes in the kitchen! [6 hours later] And the reason I hate you the most Junior? Is because you exist! Would not—why would God even create a little bastard like you?! Please tell me—in this beautiful universe He could create anything else! But it's OK, I'mma take you out of this universe. Any last words Junior?
  • They Killed Kenny Again: How many times have the SML characters died?
  • Throw the Dog a Bone:
    • After constantly being rejected and having a lot of extremely painful mishaps, Mario finally gets a girlfriend (Rosalina) in "Mario's New Girlfriend", and the episode ends with him keeping her.
    • Chef Pee Pee managed to get a job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza which turned out to be a dream job and was all he could have ever wanted given the animatronics made him pizza and he was being appreciated. By the end of the episode, he still has the job.
    • In "Chef Pee Pee's Birthday Surprise!", Junior realizes it's Chef Pee Pee's birthday, and feeling bad for him, throws a surprise party for him with the help of his friends. They screw up a lot while doing it, but Pee Pee still enjoys the party.
  • Tinkle in the Eye:
    • Happens to Shrek in "Baby Shrek" when he changes his infant son's diaper.
    • This also happens to Mario when he attempts to change Jeffy's pants in "Jeffy Gets Potty Trained!".
    • In "Jeffy's Bathtime!", Jeffy does this to Mario on purpose when Mario tries to give him a bath.
  • Toilet Humor: Pretty much most of Shrek's appearances.
  • Toilet Training Plot:
    • In "Bowser Junior Gets Potty Trained!", Junior wets his bed and is unable to properly use the toilet, so Bowser forces him to wear diapers. Joseph and Cody tease Junior for wearing diapers, but Toad actually thinks he's cool for wearing them and teaches him to use the toilet with a rap song.
    • In "Jeffy Gets Potty Trained!", Mario is tired of changing Jeffy's diapers (especially since he's way past the normal potty-training age) and so he and Rosalina try unsuccessfully to potty-train him. Jeffy doesn't poop in the toilet, but does poop in the sink and the bathtub. Eventually, Mario and Rosalina train Jeffy to use the litter box.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Most characters qualify, but Bowser Junior is probably the best example as he once put his tongue on Cody's drone, resulting in Bloody Hilarious Tongue Trauma. He also saw Doofy the Dragon light himself on fire and thought it would be cool to start a fire.
    • Toad might be an even better contender. He eats Shrek's cheesecake and hides in a blender to avoid Shrek, completely forgetting the blender is see-through glass, so Shrek spots him easily and then grinds him up into a gory, disgusting blob with the blender.
      • Toad also tried to help Luigi catch souls, and managed to suck up his own soul three times.
  • Totem Pole Trench: In the episode, "Pop Rocks and Coke!", after Chef Pee Pee explodes from eating Pop Rocks and drinking Coca-Cola at the same time (It Makes Sense in Context), Junior and Cody are forced to substitute for him. They wear Chef Pee Pee's outfit, with Junior forming the head and arms and Cody forming the legs. At the end of the episode, it is revealed that Chef Pee Pee was alive the whole time and played a prank on Junior.
  • Trademark Favorite Food:
    • Shrek loves his cheesecake to the point where he has had so much cheesecake that his body built up an immunity to diabetes.
    • Black Yoshi loves grape Kool-Aid and fried chicken. In "Black Yoshi's in Trouble!", to help Mario reform Black Yoshi, Craig the Devil convinced Black Yoshi that there's no Kool-Aid or fried chicken in Hell.
    • Bowser Junior loves Happy Meals, to the point where two episodes focused on him demanding Chef Pee Pee to buy them for him. He also likes Chips Ahoy cookies, as in "Bowser Junior's All-Nighter!", he competed against Joseph and Cody to see who could stay up the longest to eat the last one. He also wanted Chef Pee Pee to buy them for him in "Bowser Junior's Cookies!", to the point of posting sticky notes with "COOKIES" written on them all over his apartment. Junior also loves macaroni and cheese, as alluded to in "Jeffy's Birthday!". Also, in "Evil Chef Pee Pee!", he told Chef Pee Pee to get just it for him when Chef Pee Pee asked him what he wanted from the grocery store. When Craig the Devil made Chef Pee Pee evil, Chef Pee Pee tried to kill Junior by serving him poisoned macaroni and cheese.
    • The Rat loves to eat cheese, and he often steals cheese from Chef Pee Pee.
    • Mr. Wilfred loves pudding to the point where he got kicked out of the nursing home for stealing pudding cups in "Mario's Grandpa".
  • Trapped in TV Land: In a Season 3 episode of Mario and Luigi's Stupid and Dumb Adventures, Mario is attempting to go back to his home dimension using a remote that the Alternate Universe Mama Luigi from the previous episode gave him. Among the dimensions he enters are those of Dora the Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Charleyyy and Friends.
  • Under the Mistletoe: A mistletoe appears above Mario and Rosalina in "The Christmas Special!". As Mario figures out two people kiss under the mistletoe, he tries to kiss Rosalina, but she enters the house instead. Later at the end of the video, Mario tries kissing Rosalina again, only to spray her with his new FLUDD.
  • Unfortunate Names: Chef Pee Pee has dressed up as a woman twice at the request of Bowser. His first time was when he was faking being Junior's new mom so Bowser could get a Charleyyy and Friends DVD box set, and the other was for Mario's date to keep Mario from committing suicide. Both times Bowser decided to name him based on stuff in the environment. The first name? Peppers Refrigerator. The second name? Lamp Doorknob.
  • The Unreveal: At the end of "Jeffy's Sister!", Jeffy is about to reveal who his real mother is, when the video suddenly cuts to the SML Question.
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: In "Mario's Date!", Mario goes on a blind date with Kirby, whom he thinks is a female. But in the end Kirby reveals that he is a homosexual male, much to Mario's anger and frustration.

     V-Z 
  • Verbal Tic: Officer Goodman's "m-kay".
    • Black Yoshi says "Folk" constantly. It's never made clear what this word means, but when Mario tries to use it, Black Yoshi hits him and claims it's "our word", meaning it's likely a racial slur.
    • Shrek calls everyone "Donkey".
    • Tanner from Bowser Junior's Summer School usually says the word "dude".
    • Joseph loves "dude" just as much as Tanner does.
    • When the Brooklyn Guy appeared in "Bowser Junior's Summer School 6", he originally said a word that mostly sounded like "right", "night" and "I", but this has mostly phased out following his Bowser Junior's Summer School appearances.
    • Jackie Chu also had a similar trait in "Bowser Junior's Summer School 3", ending a few sentences with "uh, bat".
  • Vocal Evolution:
    • Junior's voice has matured over time, originally sounding much more baby-ish and with a slight Elmer Fudd thing going.
    • Chef Pee Pee had a thicker accent early on.
    • Cody originally sounded more like Mr. Crocker.
  • Waiting Skeleton: In the episode, "Joseph's House!", Joseph invites Bowser Junior and Cody into his run-down house when Bowser has his apartment fumigated for termites. Joseph's Mom is revealed to have died on October 31, 2015, and he has left his Mom's corpse in the place she died, which has decomposed into a skeleton when he introduces Junior and Cody to her.
  • Wham Episode:
    • "Jeffy's Parents!". It is revealed that Jeffy is the 12-year-old son of an extremely abusive alcoholic smoking prostitute named Nancy, and a rich painter Driven to Suicide named Jacques Pierre François.
    • "The Secret Door!". It turns out that the bodies of all of the 26 people that were murdered in the house were left inside the door (albeit only one of them left at the doorstep), and that the Brooklyn T. Guy who sold the house to Mario and his friends was actually his Evil Twin, Does Bad Things Guy, who committed the murders.
  • Wham Line:
    • Played for laughs. "Bowser Junior's All Nighter!" has Junior and his friends drinking energy drinks in order to stay awake, but after Junior mentions not having to fall asleep from the energy boost, the scene cuts to 30 minutes later, with Junior and Joseph completely tired and exhausted (even down to their half-closed eyelids), persisting for the rest of the episode. Not to mention that Cody has already fallen asleep.
    • Played straight with "Bowser Junior's Clown Car!". Also combined with Sequel Hook.
    Bowser: His ass's going to military school.
    • Whoever thought that a simple "yay" could be a Wham Line?!
    • In "SuperPowers!":
    Cody: (to Junior) So, uh...I banged your dad.
    • In "The Koopalings! Part 2":
    Goodman: (to Mario and Bowser) Get the fuck out.
    • In "The Golden Egg!":
    Jeffy: Man, I sure wish I had that golden egg.
    • In "The Test!":
    Cody: Guys, the only way you're going to pass now is if you cheat.
  • Wham Shot:
    • In "Mario's Hair", Peach filing for a divorce over Mario's baldness.
    • In "Cody's Revenge!", Bowser Junior knocking the jar of their dead cat, Mittens, and her ashes, breaking the jar and spilling the ashes.
    • In "Bowser Junior Gets Rabies!", Junior turning from a hallucinating Non Sequitur into a rabid wild biter.
    • Two in "Bowser Junior's Painting!"; the first being Junior dropping his canvas onto his color plate by accident, and the second being Jacques Pierre François cutting his ear and putting it onto his black canvas in an attempt to improve it during an art duel with Junior, much to the horror and disgust of Junior and Goodman, and later impressiveness of the latter.
    • In "Jeffy's Bad Word!", Mario spanking Jeffy as punishment for the latter saying the F-word (no, not that F-word).
    • In "SuperPowers!", Cody shapeshifting into Chef Pee Pee and having sex with Bowser.

    • In "Jeffy Sneaks Out!", PlayDoh!Jeffy getting a knife from the kitchen and threatening to stab Mario and Rosalina with it.
    • In "The Magical Button!", Junior realizing that both Chef Pee Pee and Bowser are dead.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: In-Universe example: Doofy the Dragon.
  • White Dude, Black Dude: A part of the humor between Mario and Black Yoshi is that Mario is never certain what to do while Black Yoshi often has a bad or destructive idea that may or may not work in the end. Furthermore, as much as Mario gets annoyed with Black Yoshi, Black Yoshi often is treated as the more outgoing and powerful of the duo, where Mario is (prior to Rosalina's appearances) more of a coward who cries.
  • Whole Plot Reference:
    • Who thought "The Purge!" wasn't the same as the movie?
    • "Home Alone" has Junior as the role of the main character, and the Terrible Trio as the roles of the burglars robbing his house.
    • "Taken" has Cody as role of the main character, and Ken as the role of the daughter who gets kidnapped.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?:
    • During the Bowser's Biggest Fear trilogy, Bowser develops a fear of bananas, and later milk. The former is later referenced in Mario and Bowser's Stupid and Crazy Adventures.
    • In "Bowser Junior's Biggest Fear!", Junior is revealed to be afraid of cotton balls.
  • With Friends Like These...: Junior and Cody are considered to be friends, yet they do not really get along with each other. For example, Junior tricks Cody into playing "catch the hammer with your mouth" in "Bowser Loses A Tooth!", so Junior can take Cody's teeth and get money.
  • Worth It: Brooklyn T. Guy's opinion on the price of sending Junior all the way to the sun in "Bowser Junior Goes To The Sun!" just so they wouldn't hear him saying that the Sun is a planet. Needless to say, it didn't help that it got Junior killed in the process.
  • Would Hurt a Child:
    • Bowser usually beats up Junior (specifically with a belt) when the latter screws up.
    • Principal Steinbeck's beatdown on Toad in Bowser Junior's Summer School.
    • Charleyyy throwing his baby daughter down a staircase can also count.
    • Brooklyn T. Guy doesn't do well with kids, especially Junior. He tortured him in Bowser Junior Goes To Military School!, tried to kill him in "The Purge!", and sent Junior to the Sun to get him killed in "Bowser Junior Goes To The Sun!".
  • Wrong Restaurant: In "Bowser Junior's Breakfast", when Chef Pee Pee takes Junior to Waffle House, Junior tries to order pancakes, despite Chef Pee Pee telling him that Waffle House doesn't sell pancakes. Chef Pee Pee then convinces the manager to smash up a waffle and pass it off as a pancake. In the same episode, Junior also tries to order a Pepsi, as well as a pizza, despite the fact that Waffle House sells Coca-Cola products and the fact that it does not sell pizza.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain:
    • Mario getting Jeffy, putting an end to a three-month period of hanging out with Rosalina.
    • Freddy Fazbear's Pizza burning down can also count for Chef Pee Pee, in the Chef Pee Pee Quits! series. Although the location returns in "Bowser Junior's 8th Birthday!".
  • Your Cheating Heart:
    • All over the place in "Toad's Girlfriend!", all Played for Laughs.
    • Almost played straight in "Mario's Valentine's Day Problem!", until Mario realizes that he is better off with Rosalina.
    • At the end of "Jeffy's Cellphone!", Rosalina accuses Mario of cheating thanks to Jeffy calling a prostitute while claiming he's Mario.
  • Your Head Asplode:
  • 0% Approval Rating:
    • In "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Part 2", Craig the Devil uses a lifeline to ask the audience to help him answer a question. All four answers result in 0%, and the Brooklyn Guy asks the audience if their keypads are broken. He soon finds out that the audience deliberately chose not to help Craig. It doesn't help that the audience starts booing upon Craig's entrance.
