Added DiffLines:

* ImpersonationExclusiveCharacter: "Breakout" has the character Judge Racklas. He briefly appears in one panel while completely bound with rope and does not have any dialogue, while the rest of the comic features [[Franchise/{{Metroid}} Ridley]] impersonating him. Therefore, most of what we know about Racklas comes from the Galactic Federation, Princess Lana, and Mother Brain discussing the disguised Ridley.


** In "A King of Shreds and Patches", she ends up in the BadFuture, rejoices that Lana is gone and she can have Kevin all to herself, despite the fact that, you know, the bad guys have taken over every world, except the garbage planet where Kevin now lives, and by not going back in time, and [[ForWantOfANail changing one thing,]] she's screwing over everyone in Videoland (though she did have plans to help liberate Videoland in that future). She does go back in the end.

Added DiffLines:

* PaperThinDisguise: Toad, when infiltrating Bowser's castle, disguises himself as a Shyguy... by wearing badly-fitting robes and a Shyguy mask behind which his mushroom cap and face are easily visible. Bowser is still fooled, though.

Added DiffLines:

* StockAnimalDiet' Subverted in "A Mouser in the Houser": the Mousers actually hate cheese despite being given it constantly.


* FreakyFridayFlip: Happens to Kevin and Duke in "A Dog's Life."

to:

* FreakyFridayFlip: Happens to Kevin and Duke in "A Dog's Life."" No one else even ''realizes'' that thanks to Kevin's subtle directing of his body - not even as "Kevin" barks at Kid Icarus.

* PetTheDog: In the 2nd Game Boy comic "It's a Small World After All" both Herman and to a lesser extent Tatanga did this. After Herman is convinced by his mother to get rid of that Game Boy he was using he gave it to a couple of little girls who were nearby. Also when Tatanga's crew hijacked the Space Shuttle he was somewhat abrasive to Tannis at first until she started to cry in which then he then tried to calm her down and give her his jacket to help warm her up. Oh sure he did display some DirtyCoward tendencies as he was quick to point fingers at Tannis when Mario got his way into the Shuttle by the Gameboy. But he was also horrified when Tatanga fully intended to let him and Tannis die on the shuttle as his crew escapes as Herman pointed out that Tatanga at one point liked Tannis first. As for Tatanga while it wasn't his intention the fact that he did get Tannis on board in the Shuttle was something that Tannis greatly appreciated as it was her dream to go to space in which even Princess Daisy lampshaded this.

** In "Magic Carpet Madness", a fast-growing beanstalk is what stops the brainwashed Princess Toadstool and snaps her awake. It grew like that because Mario sat on a fertilizer sack right over the seeds. Funnily enough, the sack reads (upside down): "Super Fert(alizer) - NOT a product of the Apook Corporation".



* TheDitz: King Toadstool and Lemmy Koopa.

to:

* TheDitz: King Toadstool (who apparently did not even ''know'' what cacti were) and Lemmy Koopa.



* RoyalBrat: While she is level-headed most of the time, Princess Toadstool has her moments, most notably in "Love Flounders" when she sends Mario out to pick chuckberries for her, ignoring that he probably had already committed himself to go bowling with Luigi and Toad that day and outright acknowledging he would be "risk[ing his] life for a handful of berries".
-->'''Mario:''' Sometimes I think she takes this Princess stuff a little ''too'' seriously.

* DreamWithinADream: "You Again?", with a rather {{Mind Screw}}y TwistEnding: [[spoiler:all those dreams of Mario getting beaten up by Shy Guys were ''Toad''[='=]s, and when he wakes up, [[HereWeGoAgain he himself starts to go through Mario's torment]].]]


* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' - Stories are made based off of Little Mac's matches with his opponents in the games. OK, only two (Piston Honda and Supermacho Man).

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Big Bertha to just about everyone, since Stanley, who is her usual object of affection, is always dumping her on the lap of the nearest sap. Although him trying to get away from her is excusable considering she's extremely needy and violently jealous (as seen in "Fins and Roses", where she beat seven shades of tar out of Wendy just because [[MisplacedRetribution Stanley was trying to woo her]], while Wendy just wanted to get rid of him because he was ruining her plan to ambush Mario), it doesn't help that Stanley's such a tool.



* DumbassHasAPoint: Subverted because King Toadstool's assumption that Wooster was betraying them was wrong.

* AdaptedOut: Prince Lyle, Game Boy and all third-party characters.
* ADayInTheLimelight: "Breakout" is mainly a Lana and Samus story; Kevin only appears in the final page for two panels.
* BadFuture: The future Videoland from "A King of Shreds and Patches" is ''not'' a pretty place.



* FantasticVoyagePlot: "Nervous Meltdown".



* InformedAttribute: For all of Kevin Keene's alleged game mastery, it's quite a shock to discover, that he never finished the original ''Metroid'' fast enough, to learn that SamusIsAGirl.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Samus Aran almost goes ahead with some pretty questionable stuff, to win Captain N's affections. In one issue, where she and Princess Lana are in jail, she almost leaves Lana there when escaping. In another, she ends up in the BadFuture, rejoices that Lana is gone and she can have Kevin all to herself, despite the fact that, you know, the bad guys have taken over every world, except the garbage planet where Kevin now lives, and by not going back in time, and [[ForWantOfANail changing one thing,]] she's screwing over everyone in Videoland (though she did have plans to help liberate Videoland in that future). She does go back in the end.
* SamusIsAGirl: Literally. When the N Team first meet Samus Aran, none of them are aware of her gender until she removes her helmet. This is a bit of FridgeLogic for Princess Lana, who has already been shown, to monitor the various realms of Videoland, using magical television screens; one would think that Samus would have removed her helmet, at ''some'' point while Lana was watching.

** And in "The Happy Zone", Mother Brain traps Princess Lana in a LotusEaterMachine while her armies are posted at the Palace of Power's doorstep, thus giving Kevin a SadisticChoice: save Lana and let the armies of evil overrun the Palace, or defend the Palace and leave Videoland without a ruler. Samus pushes hard for Kevin not to go and save her, arguing he would be running away from the fight ahead of them. [[spoiler:He ends up [[TakeAThirdOption taking a third option]].]]
