Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Discredited Meme: Due to being one of the foundations of Youtube Poop source material and thus extremely overused, this games memes have understandably fallen out of favor with the poop community. Most amateur poopers don't even bother trying to use them now.
Game Breaker: The fire flower. Naturally, it kills almost every enemy in one hit. To put this in perspective, the enemy hitboxes are very precise, added to the fact Wigglers take three jumps to get killed. The fire flower on the other hand makes it almost easy to mow down enemies.
Fountain of Memes: It's weird how easily the entire dialogue of the game gets memorized by everyone to quote.
Fast forward to 2007 with Super Paper Mario. In Chapter 7, Mario is separated from Princess Peach and Bowser. Where is the princess taken? The OVERTHERE!!
Just Here for Godzilla / Watch It for the Meme: The gameplay itself is perfectly playable and average—the real draw of the games infamy is it's bizarre animated cutscenes, and if it weren't for those, nobody would bat an eye at this game.
Memetic Mutation: The cutscenes of this game have been used almost religiously in a style of absurd video editing known as Youtube Poop, since pretty much every scene is chock full of meme fodder thanks to the bizarre animation, hokey script, silly voices, and downright weird electronic/funk music. The unofficial slogan for Youtube Poop is even made of two different lines from the game that use the exact same animation. "Where there's smoke, they pinch back".
