It's a me! Mario-o...oh...oh, mama-mia.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

  • Level 1-7: "Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy". It's filled to the brink with fuzzy white seedlike creatures which cause Yoshi to have psychedelic hallucinations when touched, and induce an Interface Screw where Yoshi stumbles around uncontrollably with a glassy-eyed stare and causes the screen to wave around so that the player can't judge distance correctly as well as distorting the music and sound effects. The German version of the level is named Lustiges Sporen Drama.
  • Level 3-4: "Prince Froggy's Fort". The evil wizard Kamek shrinks Yoshi and Baby Mario, and they get eaten by Prince Froggy, the boss of the level. After defeating the frog by throwing eggs at his uvula, Yoshi exits by disappearing down a passageway at the bottom of Prince Froggy's stomach (in the Game Boy Advance remake, there's even the usual "entering a pipe" sound effect). We then cut to a shot of Prince Froggy looking sick, and Yoshi returning to normal size with a somewhat disturbed expression on his face.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

  • Yaridovich claims, "I got to my lofty station in life by... ahem... 'pleasing' my superiors."
  • Valentina's 'hit' animation seems to involve little bit of breast bounce.
  • If you look around her bedroom, you can find Princess Toadstool's "???". We're not told what it is, but her grandmother will immediately run over and bribe you to leave it be. If you go back and find it again when the princess is in your party, she will yell at you for going through her things.
  • One of King Calamari's (a gigantic Blooper) attacks is to use one of its tentacles to snatch away one of your party members. When they're returned to the battle a few turns later, they'll have gained the "Fear" status.
  • There is an item known as a Muku Cookie that can be purchased for 69 coins and it restores 69 HP.
  • There is a casino hidden somewhere in the game, complete with Luck Based Minigames you can gamble coins on. The ESRB rating does not include "Simulated gambling". Said casino is very hard to unlock without using a guide, so it's likely the ESRB completely missed it.
  • The Japanese version contains an innuendo that many Japanese gamers believe to be deliberate. The thought of the Goombette (Mamekuribō) enemy in the Japanese version is "omame kurikuri... kuri! jowa~" which roughly translates to "Rub the bean, rub the bean, rub, rub… rub! Splosh~", mimicking female masturbation.

Paper Mario

  • One quest involves returning a "special tape" from Goompa in Goomba Village to Koopa Koot in Koopa Village. The contents of the tape are never mentioned, save that Goompa keeps it... well hidden.
  • During the scene where Peach can disguise herself as one of Bowser's troops, you can interact with a particularly flustered Hammer Bro in the library. He protests that he's not looking for "that book", and bribes you to leave.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

  • Similar to the tape from the first Paper Mario, this time with a mysterious 'package', from one Goomba to another. Add to this the fact that this delivery is made in the back streets of Rogueport, and the Goomba for whom you're delivering it tells you not to be seen, well, it just speaks for itself really. This happens in the third game as well.
  • Ms. Mowz is a mostly G-rated Femme Fatale, but that doesn't stop Goombella from repeatedly calling her a "floozy" — for those not in the know, an antiquated term equating roughly to the modern "slut." Clearly, Goombella is a bit jealous of how forward Mowz is with Mario.
    Goombella: Ms. Mowz was here before, but I think she took the next train to Floozyville.
  • The between-chapter Peach segments contain a few instances of Fanservice that managed to scoot by the radar. Some chapters allow you to have Peach take a shower before meeting with TEC and one chapter has Peach pull an Invisible Streaker to sneak around the enemy base. Nothing is shown on screen, mind you, but even the implication of nudity is surprising for a Mario game.
  • Flurrie herself. She's a buxom woman with noticeably large breasts that move up and down with each step the player takes and they make their own sound. Her body slam also mentions that she uses her... "stage presence" to attack enemies.
  • In one of the cutscenes where Mario must talk to Frankly about the current Crystal Star's location, Frankly says "Assuming will just make-, well, you know the saying".
    Flurrie: Yes, how inappropriate.
  • In Chapter 4, Mario finds the wife of the Twilight Town shopkeeper distraught that her husband has been turned into a pig. When he returns after lifting the spell, he finds that the pig in the shop wasn't her husband at all, but rather the Handsome Lech Frenchman of the game, Dupree — and the real husband was none too happy to find this strange man in his home! While nothing explicit is said, it's clear that the shopkeeper thought some sexual infidelity was going on behind his back. The two men have a verbal throwdown, and the wife even teasingly comments that Dupree is younger and cuter than her husband and it may be time to trade in.
  • While Beldam's insulting nickname for Doopliss, "freak-in-a-sheet", derives from him being a Bedsheet Ghost, the term "freak in the sheets" generally means something far less PG.
  • At the end of Chapter 1, against Hooktail, she'll make three different offers for you to stop attacking her. The first two are typical, being a bribe for 1,000 coins and a rare Badge respectively. The third bribe falls straight into this category, making an offer with Mario to... smell her feet, even mentioning that 'people pay for this'.

Super Mario Sunshine

Paper Mario: Color Splash

  • Using the Plunger Thing sticker as an attack results in a plunger slowly approaching the enemies, jumping on top of them, and then vigorously pumping up and down. This would all be fine and dandy... if saxophone music didn't play during the entire time.

Mario Strikers Charged

  • One of Waluigi's goal celebration animations is the crotch chop.
  • One of Daisy’s celebration animations isn’t any better, with her declaring herself “Hot stuff!” and then moving her rear towards the camera and touching it with a sensual “Yeah!”.

Mario Super Sluggers

  • Wario does this on one of the loading screens.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

  • After beating Wingo for the first time, Toadette gets stuck headfirst in the ground. Captain Toad has to pull her out in a way that seems very... suggestive, to say the least.

Mario And Luigi series

  • In Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time, Toadsworth repeatedly, in every line of the tutorial, insists that the Bros. Ball move (in which both brothers interlock their bodies to form a ball) "requires a bit of an open mind", that it "is not a bit odd", and that the audience and brothers should "keep the jokes to themselves", amongst other things about how innocent it is.
  • In the French version of Bowser's Inside Story, the Rump Command area is called the "Cul de Sac". Now, Cul de Sac is a perfectly acceptable term, but said area is inside Bowser's rear area (and "Cul" is basically French for "ass", which is something you'd not expect to hear in a Mario game).
  • In Dream Team, one Pi'illo early in the game calls Starlow nude (to which she retorts that she is not nude and obviously wearing shoes). Also, Starlow and Dreambert later distract some Shy Guys by gossiping about a birthmark on Bowser in "that place".
  • In Paper Jam:

Mario Party series

  • One mini-game called 'Grab Bag' appears in the first two games, and it's all about grabbing other people and shaking their bags to steal more coins/mushrooms. The animation for grabbing characters and shaking them up is quite... unsettling. This applies for every character, such as Peach, and Donkey Kong (The Runaway Guys didn't let it go unnoticed).
  • Toad in Mario Mario Party 2 will dress up in different costumes for each board and will do a different animation when revealing where the star is, which is sped up slightly upon the reveal for Baby Bowser. This particular bit becomes utterly hilarious for Pirate Land, where Toad (who has a little dinghy around his waist) essentially looks like he's humping the air.
  • The sleds in the Mario Party 2 version of Bobsled Run have penguin-themed paint jobs, complete with visible anuses, which you'll be staring directly at for almost the entire minigame.
  • In Mario Party 3, when you land on a Bowser Space, it's possible for Bowser to appear in this pose.
  • In Mario Party 8, if you play a game in 2-on-2 Team Mode with Birdo and Dry Bones, their "team name" will be "Bone Chokers''.
Mario Kart Series
  • One of Bowser Jr's taunt animations in both Mario Kart 8 and Mario Kart Tour is spanking himself.

Mario Tennis Aces

Super Mario Maker 2

  • One of the levels in Story Mode is called "Boom Boom Rager"! It's so unsubtle that you have to wonder how it even got past the radar in the first place.
    • Not only that, but it's heavily implied the creator of the level in-universe is Bowser Jr. Can't help but wonder where he got the idea for the level name from...

Luigi's Mansion 3

  • When you return to Basement 2 to rescue the Toad and obtain the part needed by E. Gadd, there's a mop and bucket with a female face drawn on it, propped up at a table, as though Clem was dating it.

Super Mario Bros. (film)

  • One of the more suggestive exchanges:
    Lena: I want you.
    Koopa: Now is hardly the time or place for that, Lena.
  • Getting "Love Is the Drug" on the Boom Boom Bar's jukebox.
  • Mario trying to get the meteorite shard from Big Bertha is rather suggestive in and of itself...
