This episode contains examples of:

  • Ass Kicks You: Happens to Wario twice: first when Bowser slams onto him in a rush to get to the tournament on time, and a second time when Liz follows suit.
    Wario: (looking up) Eh? (sees Liz climbing down) Oh no. (Liz slams down onto Wario)
  • Cool Airship: Bowser apparently has one, as he uses it to get to the exhibition match on time. It can be seen in the episode's title card.
  • Ms. Fanservice: One of Dedede's Zero Suits is a bit more...well-endowed than the others.
  • Power Copying: Peach baits Kirby into copying her. Since the move copied is a counter, Kirby has no idea how to use it properly, something that doesn't go unnoticed.
    Fox: To be fair, he can't copy an actual attack from her.
    Falco: Not to mention he's HARDLY USING IT RIGHT to counter Peach's assault!
  • The Battle Didn't Count: How Pikachu justifies challenging Bowser: his team doesn't deserve the win unless he puts up a fight.

  • Vanity Is Feminine: Falco makes a comment during Peach's bout with Kirby, saying "It's nice to see her bat the puffball around instead of applying it to her face."
    Fox: Wow, Falco. You have any more sexist comments you'd like to share with us?

How well does it match the trope?
