Mario Part 5 - Did You Know Gaming? Feat. MatPat from Game Theory
 
In an interview, the game's director and designer Hiroji Kiyotake was asked about the characters and sprites looking different from other Mario games. He responded: "With Super Mario Land 2, one of our ideas was to not be bound by the conventions of the previous games. However, when we showed our first draft to everyone, they were like, “I don’t know… is this Mario?” We realized we were on the wrong path, so we toned down that idea and made something a little closer to the existing Mario world."

"HAPPY" is spelled out in stars in the first Space Zone level. However, it's too far up for the player to see it under normal gameplay. Jumping from a specific spot in the level will allow them to reach the letter 'Y'.

In the Pumpkin Zone, there's an enemy called J Son that walks like a Goomba but instead carries a hockey mask with a dagger stuck in it. This is a reference to the main antagonist of Friday The 13th, Jason Voorhees.

There is a glitch that's caused by going down a pipe, pausing the game, and exiting the level with Select. When Mario enters any level, he'll go through the floor as if he was still going down the pipe.

The fourth stage of Mario Zone in Super Mario Land 2 uses Nintendo's N&B block brand, building bricks made in the 1960s. The N&B logo is placed on one brick in the level.
