- Fridge Brilliance:
- Bowser's first and second battle themes sound similar to Across the Stars. He's in love with Peach.
- Also in the S World there's the Toadships. The green one tells you to "go, go!" The red one tells you "slow, slow!" And the yellow tells you to stay in control. Traffic lights much?
- The game starts with the Star Festival, just like Super Mario Galaxy, even though that only happens every hundred years. Mario meets the Lumas and the other races of the universe for apparently the first time, even though he met them already. The Toad Brigade forms again. And at the end of the game, Mario doesn't seem to remember Rosalina, although she remembers him. Then you remember how the first game ended: The universe was destroyed and reborn. This game is the events of Super Mario Galaxy happening again in the new universe.
Rosalina: When stars die, they turn to stardust and scatter across the cosmos. Eventually, that stardust reforms to create a new star . . . and so the cycle of life continues. But the cycle never repeats itself in quite the same way . . . So . . . you'll see.
- World 2's Solar System: a yellow Sun orbited by a rocky gray planet, a molten orange planet, a watery blue planet, a rocky red planet, a swirly giant planet, a planet with rings, a green ringed planet spinning on its side, and a swirly blue planet.
