* AuthorsSavingThrow: The UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance remake replaces the Shellcreepers with Spinies to keep newcomers from being confused about why they can't kill enemies by jumping on them. ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3 SMB3]]'' had done the same thing a decade earlier in their minigame version.

* HilariousInHindsight: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnU-2HRJNO4 commercial]] for "Atari" ''Mario Bros.''


* ItsTheSameSoItSucks: The game being released ''[[PortOverdosed seven times]]'' on the GBA (the remake five times and the NES port twice). IGN in particular first praised the remake in their ''Super Mario Advance'' review, but increasingly got annoyed by its presence per subsequent release (even speaking to Nintendo in search for a reason) until becoming indifferent about it in their ''Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga'' review.

Added DiffLines:

* PolishedPort: The GBA remake has ''much'' better controls than the original arcade game, has [[VideoGame/SuperMarioAllStars All-Stars style]] graphics and a beefed up soundtrack to spice things up. On top of that, it can support up to a whopping four players at once!

Added DiffLines:

* MostAnnoyingSound: Mario's walking sound effect in the original version of the arcade game is an obnoxious, scraping sound effect that gets grating fast. There are two revised versions that replace it with more pleasant sounds, and all of the ports have much better sounds for Mario walking.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: Luigi being the CowardlySidekick did not come from ''Series/TheSuperMarioBrosSuperShow''. It came from the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnU-2HRJNO4 Atari commercial]] for ''Mario Bros''.
