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.
Ass Pull: Peach getting "raped" in chapter 18. It isn't until sixteen chapters later that we find out that a random koopatrol used her Sneaky Parasol and disguised himself as her while she hid under the bed. Twink flat-out lampshades this trope.
Dracolin, a sadistic dragon who enjoys burning, torturing, devouring, and tormenting others just because it's fun. What's mostly disturbing about Dracolin is that he takes pleasure in scaring little Yoshi children, almost to a point where he comes across as a pedophile. He even crushes one of them to death and then brags to the dead Yoshi's friends how wonderful it felt killing her. To top all that off, it's implied more than once that Dracolin has a Fetish for crushing small creatures.
It Gets Better: The story starts out as a comical fanfic suited for young teenagers. But the further along it goes, the darker it becomes and the more serious the plot is. Some of the tasteless jokes also begin to go away as the story progresses, and many characters start to go through seriously needed Character Development. By the time chapter 37 comes around, the story arguably starts Growing the Beard.
