* XanatosGambit: The antagonist, [=Supmaster004=], fooled Mario into believing that there were viruses causing the monstrous entity known as The Twibug. The Twibug was actually the result of a loss of control of the Dark Star. The 'game backups' that Mario was sent to find were actually tools being used to regain control of the Dark Star. The programmer was in a win-win situation. If Mario collected enough of the 'backups', then the Dark Star would continue to grow and engulf the world and the Programmer would win by default. If Mario failed, then he would ''fail'', and the Programmer would also win.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The spaceship serving as the base of operations for Darth Vador is the [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Death]] ''[[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Egg]]'', not the [[Franchise/StarWars Death Star]]. Sure enough, Dr. Eggman is revealed later in the game to be TheManBehindTheMan.


** In the Lost Woods, you fight a giant green mushroom by tricking it into breaking the floor on the arena. After you collects the backup, the mushroom manages to transform you into a red Pikmin, and after a brief interlude of working and producing more red Pikmin, you have to fight off an invading blue Onion. What veers it into this trope is that you're not allowed to go back to [[HubWorld Hyrule Field]] while you're still transformed, forcing you to fight both the mushroom and the Onion in one go.

* AbilityRequiredToProceed: Link's half of the game is exactly what you'd expect from ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''; you collect an item from one dungeon and use it to defeat the respective boss and enter the next dungeon. In particular, you need bombs to progress through Luigi's Mansion and Gyrog's Tower, the hookshot to enter the Volcano Temple, the hammer to enter World -1, the Pokeball to capture a Machamp guarding the Space Station (where you enter the Death Egg from), the jetpack to enter the Temple of Sand, and finally the hourglass to progress through the Temple of Sand. These restrictions also mean that Mario can't access any of the dungeons himself, since he can't acquire any of Link's items.[[note]]The Death Egg is technically an exception, but the rooms Mario enters are completely disconnected from the rest of the dungeon.[[/note]]

* RuleOfThree: Most bosses, particularly the ones who are fought by Link, must have their weaknesses exploited three times in order to defeat them.
* SequentialBoss:
** In the Lost Woods, you fight a giant green mushroom by tricking it into breaking the floor on the arena.

** The two Gyrogs of the eponymous Gyrog's Tower are fought back to back. You first cripple the blue Gyrog by [[GoForTheEye striking its eyes]], then grapple onto the red Gyrog and do the same thing while the blue Gyrog continues to attack you.
** [=Supmaster004=]'s battle in the Temple of Sand involves three Pokemon being sent out at you, one at a time. In order, these are Squirtle, Ivysaur and Charizard (who itself has the same moveset and weakness as the Fire Spirit in the Volcano Temple).



** TheManBehindTheMan: Supmaster004 AKA The Programmer was the one giving the orders to Eggman. It's fairly easy to notice once you consider that [[TheCakeIsALie Microsoft was a lie]].

Added DiffLines:

* BookEnds: The beginning of the game shows Mario reacting in shock to the Shroob invasion and going down a warp pipe. In the true ending, where you are still in control of Link, a "reset" takes you back to the opening invasion, but this time you prevent the events of the game from happening by killing Mario before he reaches the pipe.

* ChekovsGun: Mario comments in the first court case how he would have a reason to be on trial for killing the Shroob king if was aware during their battle that a glitch allowed him to shoot without carrying a gun. If you actually exploit the 'glitch' and kill the leader, a secret scene is shown where the (invisible) original killer hurls you off the battlefield (which has the same result as when you normally lose in the fight).
