When the match starts, the player's fighter will spawn on the left side of the center main platform, while Mario spawns on the right side of the center main platform, Luigi spawns on the leftmost main platform, and Peach spawns on the rightmost main platform. The CPU fighters can also damage each other, making it easier for the player to KO them.
- This event match is a reference to Super Mario Bros. 2, which features Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach as playable characters.
- This event match's Japanese name, Super Mario USA is derived from the Japanese name of Super Mario Bros. 2 when it became a redeveloped format of the Japan-exclusive game, Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic for its international release.
- This event match's description is slightly inaccurate, since Toad, one of the four main playable characters in Super Mario Bros. 2 is not present as a playable character; however, it can be argued that Toad is present as one of Peach's attacks, giving the description accuracy.
- This is the second event match in Melee that references an NES title, the first being Event 31: Mario Bros. Madness, which is a reference to Super Mario Bros.
