Did You Know?

Trivia

First and only Super Mario game not produced by Nintendo. It was also the first Super Mario game that is not a "platformer", a genre which the original Super Mario game started. See more »

Goofs

You fight Yaridovich, on the main map screen, on what appears to be a small coastal beach area at midday. But the actual fight takes place on a cliffside, at sunset. See more »

Quotes

Mushroom Kid: 1... 2... 3! Hey, Mario! You think if I practiced enough, I could be as good a jumper as you?
Mario: Yeah right, kid!
Mushroom Kid: [dissapointed] Thanks a bunch.

Crazy Credits

During the credits we see that the Mushroom Kingdom is celebrating the defeat of Smithy by holding a parade. As Luigi leads the parade (yes, Luigi makes a cameo in this game), we see humorous scenes that involve Bowser and his minions fixing the castle, Booster with his new wife Valentina and her henchman Dodo, Johnathan Jones and his crew on his ship, prince Mallow with his real parents, and finally Mario and Peach together. The sky turns dark and the Mushroom people's costumes glow a la Disneyland electrical parade and it shows the Mushroom castle (resembling "Sleeping Beauty castle") and ends with fireworks (another Disneyland reference). How many fireworks you bought in Mole village determines which firework is shown. The whole thing ends when Geno returns to his home in the stars, while the music from the original "Super Mario Bros" game plays. See more »

Alternate Versions

One character refers to another as a persistent "bugger" in a part of the game. This is replaced with the word "pest" in Virtual Console rereleases; bugger is something of a negative slang word in the UK. See more »
