Did you know ... ?

  1. During the Rainbow Road chase, Mario flies off the edge of the road and lands down on a bottom part of the road to get away. In Mario Kart 64 (1996) there was a huge shortcut on the Rainbow Road level where you did the exact same thing.
  2. When Mario and Toad try to enter Princess Peach's castle, two toad guards joke that "the princess is in another castle". This is a reference to the original Super Mario Bros. (1985), where at the end of each world (bar world 8) a toad said "Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle".
  3. The little blue star who is prisoner of Bowser is Lumalee, a character introduced in Super Mario Galaxy (2007). It is used as a shop by Mario and Luigi, where they can buy a Life Mushroom (a 1-Up Mushroom) for 30 Star Bits. An interesting fact (used in the movie as comic gag) is that Lumalee is depicted as a dark timing, depressed and suicidal character, obsessed with death. The explanation about his personality comes from the game: at the end of it, all the Lumas (Lumalee's race), jump themselves into a black hole to save the universe of a cosmic catastrophe. Eventually they returned in Super Mario Galaxy 2 (2010). As gestating celestial bodies race, Lumas can transform into planets, stars or entire galaxies when they fulfill their life cycle.
  4. A game cabinet in the pizzeria early in the film is called "Jump Man." The character of Mario was originally known as "Jumpman" when he first appeared in the video-game Donkey Kong (1981). The character's name was changed to Mario as a tribute to the landlord of Nintendo of America's warehouses, Mario Segale.
  5. When Luigi's phone rings, his ringtone is the startup jingle from the Nintendo GameCube. The default caller icon also resembles the default Mii on the Nintendo systems since the Wii.
  6. A French restaurant called "Chasse du Canard" can be seen in the background of some shots in Brooklyn. "Chasse du Canard" translates as "Duck Hunt," another early Nintendo game, which was often packaged with Super Mario Bros. (1985). The restaurant's logo is a duck from the Duck Hunt (1984) game.
  7. The music played during Mario and Luigi's plumbing commercial is actually the theme music of the kid show The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! (1989), starring Lou Albano as Mario and Danny Wells as Luigi.
  8. One of the residents in the Mushroom Kingdom is seen buying a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) cartridge at the antique store. The owner of the store tells him to blow into it to get it to work, a reference to how many gamers would have to blow into the NES cartridges to get errant dust out of them.
  9. Although the film is obviously based on Mario, there are many references to other Nintendo franchises. The pizzeria is called the "Punch-Out!!" Pizzeria after the video game Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! (1987) (shortened as "Punch Out!!" when Mike Tyson wasn't related to it) in which Mario had a cameo as the referee, and a model of an Arwing fighter from Star Fox (1993) can be seen in Mario's bedroom, as well as a poster of Captain Falcon's blue pod racer from F-Zero (1990) and sequels. Additionally, the game that Mario plays in his bedroom on an NES-style console is the classic Kid Icarus (1986).
  10. When Mario and Luigi descend to the sewer in order to stop the water flow, they inadvertently break through a wall and find an unused part of the sewer, which has a sign that states 'Level 1-2'. This alludes to an infamous glitch from the original Super Mario Bros. (1985): in World 1-2, a sewer level, the player could jump through a certain wall and end up in a warp zone that led to the 'Minus World'. For many years, fans believed that this was a secret world built into the game, while in reality, it was glitch that led to an improperly loaded environment, creating an unwinnable situation. In the movie, level 1-2 contains the portal to the Mushroom Kingdom, thereby genuinely giving access to a secret world.
  11. Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario in the video game series since 1991 (and also the voice of Wario and Waluigi), voiced Giuseppe in this movie. Giuseppe is the character that is playing an arcade game called Jump Man in Punch-Out Pizzeria and says the Mario Bros. accents are perfect after seeing their commercial on TV. Giuseppe physically bares a close resemblance to the original look of "Jumpman" Mario on the Donkey Kong (1981) arcade game cabinet, complete with the matching red hat and overalls with a blue shirt. At the end of the film, Giuseppe is shown jumping in the air exclaiming "wahoo" in the exact same pose as the original Jumpman Mario in the game. Martinet also voices Mario and Luigi's father in the movie.
  12. Designs for Mario and Luigi's parents and relatives were based on sketches made by Nintendo that went unused in games.
  13. The spikey red-shelled turtle like things that Bowser didn't know the name of are called Spiny from the game Super Mario Bros. (1985).
  14. Many of the actors attended the premiere of the film in outfits inspired by their characters. Chris Pratt and Charlie Day wore matching red and green suits, Jack Black wore a suit with Bowser's spikes on the back and flames on the cuffs, and Anya Taylor-Joy wore a recreation of Peach's motorcycle outfit that's seen in the film.
  15. The Super Mario Bros. plumbing van's logo is the logo font that's been used since the original Super Mario Bros. (1985). Additionally, the images of the brothers on the van are old promotional images from the game's early days.
  16. At the beginning of the movie Mario and Luigi had to run to their first job. This is not only a recreation of the classic side-scrolling action from the original 8-bit Super Mario Bros. (1985) NES game, but also at the end Mario jumps to a pole of a restaurant called Castle Burger. The way he slides from it is exactly as he does in the game. Also the shape of the restaurant is the same as the castles at the end of every stage.
  17. Spike, the man in blue who mocks Mario and Luigi at Punch-Out!! Pizzeria, is actually Foreman Spike. He was introduced in Wrecking Crew (1984), where Mario and Luigi work using hammers as demolition workers, Spike is an NPC (Non-Playable Character), who appears in the game as Mario & Luigi's rival demolishing walls (preventing Mario and Luigi from winning points for destroying them), that in addition can push them off of the platforms if he hits them.
  18. A billboard that can be seen in the background on one of the buildings in Brooklyn features an advertisement for 'Hanafuda Cards'. Nintendo was originally founded in 1889 for the purposes of producing and selling hand-crafted hanafuda. Nintendo has focused on video games since the 1970s but continues to produce cards in Japan, including themed sets based on Mario, Pokémon, and Kirby.
  19. When Mario and Toad enter the Mushroom Kingdom, you can see the "Crazy Cap Store" in the background, this can be found and used to purchase cosmetics in Super Mario Odyssey (2017).
  20. A painting of the hunting dog from the Famicom/NES game Duck Hunt (1984) can be seen at the end of the hallway in the apartment where Mario and Luigi take their first plumbing job.
  21. Some of Bowser's roars are provided by Kenny James, his current voice actor in the games.
  22. In the plumbing commercial, Mario and Luigi appear making a poor visual effect pretending fly over NYC using a yellow cape. It's a hint for a suit named Caped Mario, which was introduced in Super Mario World (1990). The suit is obtained getting a Cape Feather, which grants the player the ability to fly indefinitely through the levels and attack enemies by spinning it around (using X Button or Y Button). In addition, while falling with Caped Mario (pushing A Button or B Button) the player can float down slowly.
  23. When Mario fights Donkey Kong, he eats a blue mushroom that shrinks him instead to making him bigger. This is the Mini Mushroom, which was introduced in Mario Party 4 (2002). The Mini Mushroom allowed the player to access some zones where Mario and Luigi wouldn't normally fit.
  24. Toad is the only one of "toad" species not wearing the same color hat and vest.
  25. The brand of piano Bowser plays is called "Ludwig Von Koopa". This is the name of the eldest Koopaling in the Super Mario Bros. video games, introduced in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988) (Final Boss in the world 7).
  26. In the post-credits scene, it can be seen underground (close to the pipe for entering Mushroom Kingdom) a white spotted-green egg breaking itself, foreshadowing Yoshi for a potential sequel. Yoshi is a little green dinosaur and Mario's pet which was introduced in Super Mario World (1990).
  27. Peach is shown wearing the biking jumpsuit that debuted in Mario Kart Wii.
  28. The musical piece performed by Bowser and Kamek together at the piano is the famous "Underground Theme" from Super Mario Bros. (1985).
  29. In the movie Mario wears two suits, Cat and Tanooki. Cat Mario was introduced in Super Mario 3D World (2013), which allowed Mario to climb or cling to walls, claw swipe enemies, and to claw dive on enemies from mid-air to slam into them. While, Tanooki Mario was introduced in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988), which not only allowed Mario to fly, but to turn him into statue for a few seconds (pushing "down" in the scroll and B button) which gave Mario invulnerability.
  30. The song "Peaches" debuted at #83 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving Jack Black his first solo hit and his first hit overall since Tenacious D's "The Pick of Destiny" peaked at #78 in 2006.
  31. Marks the first time in non-video game media where Princess Peach is referred to as such outside of Japan, and the second time in non-video game media she was referred to as any name other than "Princess Toadstool." In the Super Mario Bros. (1993), she was named "Daisy."
  32. When the Mushroom Kingdom is blasted into Brooklyn, a building selling disks and DVDs boasts the mascot of the Famicom Disk System, Diskun.
  33. The website shown at the end of the Super Mario Brothers' Plumbing commercial ( was a real site at the time of the film's release. The website gave the business' phone number as 1-929-556-2746 (1-929-55-MARIO). At the time of the film's release, calling that number would play a recorded message from Luigi.
  34. The countdown sound from Mario Kart 8 is used for the Illumination Entertainment logo.
  35. In the Punch-Out Pizzeria, there are a bunch of pictures on the walls from characters in the Punch Out video games such as Little Mac, Bear Hugger, Glass Joe and Doc Lewis.
  36. The various karts and bikes all have gliders as first introduced in Mario Kart 7.
  37. Above the TV in Mario's room is a model Arwing, the principal aircraft of the Star Fox team in the Star Fox video games.

  39. A Pikmin glass ornament can be seen in the lounge of the customers that Mario and Luigi attempt to repair the sink.
  40. When Mario and Kong fall into the ocean, they can be seen underwater a little white squid-like creatures. They are Bloopers, a trademark of the franchise since their introduction in Super Mario Bros. (1985).
  41. The film surpassed 2019's Frozen II as having the highest-grossing opening worldwide for an animated film, grossing $375.6 million. It also achieved the highest-grossing opening for a video game adaptation worldwide, surpassing 2019's Detective Pikachu. In addition, the film achieved the second highest-grossing opening weekend in the US and Canada for an animated film behind Incredibles 2, earning $146 million in a 3-day frame and $204 million in a 5-day frame over Easter weekend. On April 13th, it became the highest-grossing video game movie of all time, surpassing 2016's Warcraft in 9 days.
  42. Charles Martinet dubbed Mario's dad and Giuseppe in English, Catalan, European French, German, Italian, and European Spanish.
  43. The rap that plays when Donkey Kong is introduced in the arena is the "DK Rap," a song that plays in the introduction to the game Donkey Kong 64 (1999).
  44. Just after meeting Toad in the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario watches a strange creature like a yellow-spotted orange ball two long spiny green brambles for legs and yellow suction cup-like feet, which moves in lateral way with long steps. It is Bramball, introduced in New Super Mario Bros. Wii (2009).

  49. Kamek's first appearance in non-video game media, as well as the first time he has an English voice actor.
  50. Bowser's "intelligence agents" who catch Luigi in The Dark Lands are two Shy Guys and one Snifit, which were introduced in Super Mario Bros. 2 (1988). Curiously, in this video-game Mario and Luigi didn't face Bowser, but another enemy boss named Wart. The absence of Bowser was due to the game actually being a version of Yume Koujou: Doki Doki Panic (1987) ("Dream Factory: Doki Doki Panic" for the English release), where the final boss was Mamu (changed to Wart for the Mario version). Super Mario Bros 2 was the first Mario game where Peach and Toad were available to play with.
  51. Princess Peach blows up her wedding with Bowser using an Ice Flower hidden in the bridal bouquet. The Ice Flower was introduced in the volume 5 of the manga "Super Mario-Kun" (1991), with Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (2005) being the first video-game in which it appears. Created as a reverse of the Fire Flower, it allows the player to project ice balls to freeze enemies.
  52. On their way to ask Kong for help defeating Bowser, Mario, Peach, and Toad cross over Yoshi's Island; a reference to Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (1995). There were many different colored Yoshis in the background, and Mario takes a bite of one of the fruits Yoshi can eat on Super Mario World for the SNES.
  53. When Luigi arrives in The Dark Lands, he faces a skeleton turtle which he smashes by chance, only for it to reform once again seconds later. This character is Dry Bones, which was introduced for the first time in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1988), appearing only in the various castle levels. Since it's an undead turtle, it can't be defeated, only briefly smashed by the player to allow the time necessary to pass before it come back.
  54. Toad's monster-truck kart makes the same noise as his horn in Mario Kart 8.
  55. During Peach's backstory, she's very briefly seen dressed in an outfit that's actually a Toad's typical ensemble adapted to human proportions.
  56. When Mario is in his room playing Greek mythology-based Nintendo game Kid Icarus (1986) on his Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), a copy of the Greek epic poem "The Odyssey" is seen in the background. This is also a reference to the game Super Mario Odyssey (2017).
  57. Shigeru Miyamoto originally wanted Donkey Kong (1981) to be a game based on the Popeye comic strip. After failing to secure the rights, he replaced Popeye, Bluto, and Olive Oyl with Mario, Donkey Kong, and Pauline, respectively. Nintendo eventually did secure the rights, and produced Popeye (1982).
  58. Mario was originally named Jumpman in Donkey Kong (1981); Luigi actually first appeared in the TV ad for the first Mario Bros. (1983) video game in 1983, played by a live actor. It was the first ad to be set entirely within a game world.
  59. Mario actually never uses a Fire Flower in this movie. Introduced in the original Super Mario Bros. (1985), the Fire Flower allows the player to project fire balls to defeat enemies. In the movie it's used by Princess Peach to start a fire in the country when they camp at night, and later by Donkey Kong during the final siege against Bowser in the Mushroom Kingdom.
  60. After obtaining the Super Leaf power up, Donkey Kong comments on Mario looking like a raccoon. Later, Luigi asks Mario why he's dressed like a bear. This is a reference to Super Mario Bros. 3, where the Super Leaf power up was introduced to turn Mario into Raccoon Mario, but another, much rarer power up can be found that turns Mario into Tanooki Mario. The power up looks like a teddy bear, but Mario's form is meant to resemble a Japanese tanuki also known as a raccoon-dog. Despite the differences in appearance, Raccoon Mario and Tanooki Mario share the game mechanics associated with flying.
  61. Looking to destroy Mushroom Kingdom and kill Mario and Luigi, Bowser gives the order to launch a "Bomber Bill" (which emerges from the volcano in Bowser's flying fortress). Known as Banzai Bill in the original Japanese, they were introduced in Super Mario World (1990) to be a giant variant of Bullet Bill, an anthropomorphic black cannon bullet with raging eyes and white arms, which are shot from a Bill Blaster to fly horizontally by the screen against the player. Unlike Bullet Bill, Bomber Bill haven't arms but a large mouth resembling a shark smile. Bullet Bill appeared by first time in Super Mario Bros. (1985).
  62. While Mario and Luigi are working their first plumbing job, the woman is seen reading a book entitled "Galaxy" with a planet from Super Mario Galaxy (2007).
  63. When Bowser directs the Bomber Bill toward Peach's castle, this is a reference to Super Smash Bros. Melee (2001) where a Bomber Bill does the same.

  65. Despite the film's release being pushed back from December 2022 to April 2023, Happy Meal Toys of characters appearing as they do in the film still came around less than a month after the originally intended release date.
  66. In Mario's bedroom there are posters on the walls referencing several early Nintendo sports games such as Baseball (1983), Track And Field (1983), and Slalom (1986). Additionally there is a poster for the 1984 arcade game Kung-Fu, which was added to the NES and Famicom library in 1985.
  67. The look of Mario's father is based on the character design from the Legend of Zelda character Talon who first appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998). Mario's father and Talon are bald-headed, with a lot of hair on their forearms, and have a mustache that extends to their sideburns. Ironically Talon's design was actually based on Mario.
  68. When Bowser announces his plan to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom and marry Princess Peach, he salutes his armies, referring to each of them as "Koopas! Goombas! Whatever those things are!" All these enemies are from the Mario video game franchise: Koopa is a race of yellow green-shelled turtle, used by Bowser as foot soldiers throughout the game levels; Goomba is a race of living brown mushroom with two fangs protruding from their mouth; the third type of Bowser's soldiers are actually known as Spiny, a small, red spine-shelled turtle which can't be smashed because the spines. All of them were introduced in Super Mario Bros. (1985).
  69. At Peach's wedding there are some cameos of popular characters in the Super Mario and Donkey Kong franchises: Diddy and Dixie Kong, sit down in the crowd of the Kong Arena during the duel between Mario and Donkey Kong. They two appeared by first time in Donkey Kong Country (1994) and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (1995) respectively. Next to Diddy can be seen Chunky Kong, who first appeared in Donkey Kong 64 (1999). King Bob-omb in Bowser's wedding (giant black bomb with big white mustache and yellow crown). The character appeared by first time in Super Mario 64 (1996). King Boo in Bowser's wedding (a large white round flying ghost). The character appeared by first time in Luigi's Mansion (2001).
  70. Toad's backpack has patches depicting Fossil Falls and Tostarena.
  71. Kevin Michael Richardson voiced Kamek by doing an impression of Peter Lorre.

  73. When Mario gets transported back to Brooklyn after the Bullet Bill explodes, the billboard in front of him has a balloon fight guy on it.
  74. The studio behind the film Illumination Entertainment previously referenced the Mario games in a few of their films. Both The Lorax (2012) and Despicable Me 3 (2017) had mentions of Donkey Kong, referring to the Donkey Kong (1981) arcade game of the same name where Mario made his first appearance. The Secret Life of Pets (2016) had a scene where a turtle shell slides along the ground knocking out things in its path like Koopa Troopa shells do.
  75. A construction site has a sign with a picture of a Super Hammer on it.
  76. When Mario and Toad arrive at the Mushroom Kingdom, there is a yellow toad who is carrying a white-flippered and yellow-crested big red fish inside a bag of water. The same fish are seen by Mario, Peach, and Toad as they cross over a long wooden bridge on their way to ask Kong for help defeating Bowser (one of them crashes against Mario's face). They are known as Cheep Cheeps, introduced in Super Mario Bros. (1985), and are one of the trademark creatures of the franchise. In the first game, they not only appear in the underwater levels, but in some castles jumping out of water to defeat Mario and Luigi.

Only can be used on the map. -P-Wing (a white wing with a red "P" inside): it gives Mario the ability to fly permanently for a level. -P-Switch (a blue block with a white "P" letter on it): that it must be activated by jump on it. Upon activation, all Brick Blocks from an area are turned into coins and viceversa just for 10 seconds. Also make to appear onscreen Blue Coins that are hidden in some levels.
  83. When Mario and Luigi are watching on TV the news about the flood in Brooklyn, below in the screen there is a round of headlines among which audience can read "detects signals from the FS-176 system". It's a hint for the Metroid franchise: FS-176 is the solar system where orbit the planets Bilium, Oormine II, Tallon IV, Twin Tabula and Zebes. Bilium, Oormine II and Twin Tabula are mentioned in Metroid Prime (2002) (not having another apparition), while Tallon IV is where the game set, and Zebes is the planet where set Metroid (1986), Super Metroid (1994) and Metroid: Zero Mission (2004).

  85. This was Charles Martinet's final Mario project before he became a Mario ambassador for Nintendo.
  86. In the film's Japanese Dub, Bowser is voiced by Kenta Miyake, who is known for being the Japanese voice of Vector the Crocodile from the Sonic the Hedgehog series and the Japanese voice of a handful of Pokemon. Interestingly enough, these characters would appear alongside Bowser in the Mario & Sonic crossovers and the Super Smash Bros. series.
  87. The first video game adaptation to gross over $1 billion worldwide.
  88. Anya Taylor-Joy has admitted to playing some of the Super Mario games as research for voicing Princess Peach.
  89. One of two 2023 films starring Chris Pratt to feature "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" by The Beastie Boys, with the other being Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
  90. Although Toad debuted in Super Mario Bros. (1985), his look in the movie comes from Super Smash Bros. Brawl (2008).
  91. Seth Rogen does his trademark laugh almost deliberately after Mario shrinks himself with a Mini Mushroom during his fight with Donkey Kong.
  92. The release date of the film was revealed in a Nintendo Direct in September of 2021.
  93. When Mario meets Peach the first time, she tests Mario's skills at jumping, climbing and running, giving him a mushroom to make him bigger as he was too small for the test. This is the classic Super Mushroom from Super Mario Bros. (1985), used by Mario and Luigi to make them bigger. Super Mushrooms make them capable of destroying bricks in the game level that they normally wouldn't be able to.
  94. When Mario wakes up during the ending, "Mr. Blue Sky" by Electric Light Orchestra is heard playing in the background, which is the same song used during the start of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where Chris Pratt also plays the main character.
  95. Chris Pratt and Charlie Day have previously worked together on The Lego Movie (2014) and The The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) , marking this the third time they've worked together. Interestingly enough, the first of the films features a scene with a mini figure of Mario in it.

  97. The phone number in the Mario & Luigi's plumbing commercial is (917) 555-0185. 917 is a telephone area code for the five boroughs of New York City: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island, while "555" is a famous fictional number used in TV series and movies.
  98. Certain scenes heavily reference the Mario Kart video games, including tracks, music, vehicles, weapons, and even the in-game kart selection screen.

  100. Toads from Mushroom Kingdom wear the same clothes (color-spotted white mushroom hat, color vest with golden border, white pants and brown shoes) in five variants of color: red, blue, green, yellow and violet.
  101. When Mario goes to his room, he is seen playing Kid Icarus on an original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) console. This is reference is twofold, first Mario playing in his NES is a reference to the opening of the anime film Super Mario Brothers: Great Mission to Rescue Princess Peach (1986) that showed Mario playing a version of Super Mario Bros. (1985) on the original Nintendo Family Computer (Famicom). Second, the game Mario is playing on his NES is Kid Icarus (1986), a Nintendo game that is loosely based on the Greek mythology. In Greek mythology, Icarus was the son of Daedalus, who instructed Icarus to fly neither too low or too high, lest the sea's dampness clog his wings or too high or the sun's heat will melt them. This is a metaphor for the Mario's relationship with his own father who disapproves of Mario's decision to leave his steady job and blames Mario for bringing his brother Luigi along with him. While Mario just wants to make his father proud of him.
  102. Kevin Michael Richardson is the only cast member of this film to have collaborated with voice actors from the Mario games on separate occasions. He appeared alongside Charles Martinet in Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast (2002) and Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds (2001) and Jen Taylor in the Halo series.

  105. Bowser in this film is voiced by Jack Black, of whom has been best known for voicing Po the Giant Panda in Dreamworks Animation's Kung Fu Panda franchise, of which had been referenced with an advertisement in Nintendo's own Mario Kart 8 (2014) and Mario Kart Tour (2019) as Kung Fu Lakitu and Kung Fu Master Lakitu.
  106. Anya Taylor-Joy's 2nd animated film, after Playmobil: The Movie (2019). That film interestingly enough features a cameo by a Question Block from the Mario series in one scene.
  107. This is the fifth fully CGI film to be based off a video game franchise, after Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001), Ratchet & Clank (2016), The Angry Birds Movie (2016), and it's sequel The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019).
  108. This is the second video game film to play the song "Holding Out For A Hero" by Bonnie Tyler, after The Angry Birds Movie 2 (2019). It also played in the trailer's of fellow Nintendo game based film Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (2019), although not in the final film.
  109. Both Chris Pratt and Charlie Day spoke in Italian accents for Mario and Luigi's plumbing commercial. Charlie Day is part Italian and Chris Pratt is not.
  110. The fourth most attended movie in Peru, after Avengers: Endgame (2019), The Lion King (2019), and Transformers: Rise of the Beasts (2023).
  111. Keegan-Michael Key 's second animated film to be based off a video game franchise.
  112. Seth Rogen and Keegan-Michael Key 's 3rd collaboration together doing voice over work, after The Lion King (2019) and Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers (2022). It's also their first time doing so in a film that's fully animated and a film that's not from Disney.
  113. The second highest-grossing film to receive a "rotten" score on Rotten Tomatoes, after The Lion King (2019).
  114. This is first Illumination film to be released in IMAX (DMR) format since The Grinch.
  115. Peaches castle is strongly influenced by Peaches castle in Super Mario 64. The exterior is the same along with the stain glass window of the princess. The interior is lined with portraits of different locations (levels). The castle theme from Super Mario 64 also plays during the reveal of the castle.
  116. Toad wears the same backpack he has in the game Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
  117. When Luigi lands in the dark lands, his encounters and flickering flashlight are references to Luigi's Mansion.
  118. Despite being called The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Mario is never seen in the fire flower or ice flower power ups. The only power ups he used were the red mushrooms to make him tall and strong and the blue mushroom to make him shrink the cat suit and the Tanooki suit and the super star. Luigi also never uses a power up except for the super star.
  119. During the end fight scene Mario and Luigi grab Bowser by the tail, spin him around, and throw him. This is how Mario defeats Bowser all three times in Super Mario 64.
  120. The uniforms and helmets worn by the guards at Princess Peach's palace are exact replicas of those worn by the Swiss Guard, the armed force and honor guard unit that protects the Pope and the Vatican City since their establishment in 1506.
  121. Toadsworth was supposed to appear in the movie when addressing the council in Princess Peach's castle but he was cut and replaced with the Toad General.
