YMMV: The Great Mission to Save Princess Peach
  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • This movie's version of Luigi acts a lot as if Wario was on Mario's side. (Ironically, this is the only time Luigi doesn't wear green.)
    • Also, all the Toads were female, at least those who were rescued.
    • Unlike the other variations of Bowser in the games, this one is clearly a Stalker with a Crush with a very kind and almost innocent personality. But this is Bowser we're talking about.
  • Ass Pull: The reveal that Kibidango is actually Peach's fiance, Prince Hal.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: A couple of them:
    • Mario trying to work the Lakitu's cloud.
    • The scene where Luigi and Mario getting out of the cave. Immediately after Luigi squeezes out of the hole he dug, he runs back in the cave, which is sealed by a wooden gate, and tries to hide from the Hammer Bro.
  • Die for Our Ship : Going by YouTube comments, Prince Hal comes under fire a lot. Anger and sadness can do that to otherwise stable fan girls and fan boys.
  • Earworm: That song that plays over the opening credits.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: There are a few moments you wouldn't expect to see in this.
    • The characters utter a few curse words, according to the subtitles.
    Luigi: What the hell, man?! What the hell?!
    • The scene where Peach made Bowser transform into multiple objects. One includes him turning into a "Buchimonta" and you can clearly see up his "dress".
    • The whole premise revolves around a spike-shelled turtle (practically) forcing a human to marry him. Throughout her scenes, Peach voices her contempt to the whole situation.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In Mario's fight with Bowser, at one point, he grabs Bowser by the tail and throws him away. Guess what you have to do in Bowser's boss battles in Super Mario 64.
    • One scene in the film also involves Mario entering a sunken ship, just like in SM 64.
    • Luigi in this film wears yellow and is obsessed with money, just like the later character Wario.
  • They Just Didn't Care: Upon obtaining the fire-flowers, the Mario Bros. use them to defeat a pair of buzzy beetles, the one enemy that was immune to fireballs.
