  • The control stick-spinning minigames of the first Mario Party became the stuff of legends among fans over time for their infamy at injuring players who used their palms for maximum efficiency. The jokes returned in full force when the "Tug 'O War" and "Cast Aways" minigames returned in Superstars with the exact same control scheme and only a cursory warning against the tactic, on a console with control sticks notorious for gaining input drift when overused. Taken with full extreme with the first Mario Party coming to Nintendo Switch Online, with those minigames back and no actual disclaimer unlike Superstars.

    • This remix of the theme song, found in Super Smash Bros. Melee, is very popular in Japanese MAD videos.
    • Joking about Dr. Mario's credentials is commonplace, e.g.: "Do not let Dr. Mario touch your genitals. He is not a real doctor." This went into overdrive with Hilarious in Hindsight come Dr. Mario World, where we not only get characters such as Yoshi, Peach and Toadette becoming doctors with dubious credentials, but Bowser, his son Bowser Jr., the Koopalings and Wario and Waluigi as well. And then we also have five baby doctors. Yes, we have Dr. Baby Mario, all the way through to Dr. Baby Rosalina, even adding in the forgotten Baby Wario as a Doctor too, all complete with pacifiers, baggy coats and other accessories.
    • The mere existence (and plain ridiculousness) of Dr. Goomba Tower, who is basically three Goombas wearing a baggy coat, got people to sarcastically request his inclusion in the Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. games.
    • The above is taken to the extreme with a Dr. Dolphin. Yes, one of the dolphins that only appeared in Super Mario World and then a handful of Mario Party games is also a doctor.
    • The sheer amount of variant characters in Dr. Mario World has led some to ask when the game will be getting characters like "Dr. Baby Metal Fire Vampire Wario".

    Super Mario cartoons 
  • The last episode of Super Mario World (1991) (and the last Mario cartoon ever made), "Mama Luigi". The entire episode (especially the line, "That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario! *wheeze*") has become a staple of YouTube Poop videos. All of the lines below and more have been frequently used and mutated in those videos. The most quotable lines from the episode include:
    • "Well, like they say in Brooklyn, early to bed, early to catch the worm. Or, is it the bagel?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]Said by Luigi in the beginning as he's putting Yoshi to bed. Bagels are often mentioned in YTPs and are treated as somewhat of a Trademark Favorite Food for Luigi thanks to this line.
