YMMV / Mario Paint

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The exercise scene. After the title screen, the game plays a short, black-and-white animation of sit-ups and a handstand, while the crowd cheers. Brentalfloss used this scene in a video with the comment, "Seriously, wtf was this about? Seriously."
  • Cult Classic: Although it didn't sell well when it was released, it has become popular now, especially due to its fly-swatting game and YouTube videos of songs made in Mario Paint.
  • Ear Worm:
  • Sidetracked by the Gold Saucer: The fly-swatting minigame, especially considering half of the main trope page is about it. In later years, the music composing section became this in spades, to the point where finding footage of anything besides it on YouTube is a challenge.
