Gameplay of Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels.


While Luigi appeared in previous games, he was just a simple palette swap of Mario. Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels was the first game to introduce his trademark physics differences, a higher jump and less agility, which carried over to his appearance in Super Smash Bros..


The Poison Mushroom debuted in this game. Its appearance was very similar to the Super Mushroom but with darker colors, much like in the Super Smash Bros. series.


The track "Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels Medley" is one of the default choices in Mushroom Kingdom U. However, despite its title, all the tracks in the medley originated in the prior Super Mario Bros..


Bowser's blue alternate costume in Super Smash Bros. 4 is based on Blue Bowser who appears in World 8-4 in this game.
