The episode starts with Alex exclaiming that he would blow someone's brains out if they said that the toads of Rose Town don't look exactly like what happens to Toad when he wears the Flying Squirrel Suit in New Super Mario Bros. U. Greg then counters with saying that the hats are actually referencing Snap, Crackle, and Pop, the Rice Krispies elves.
The Beard Bros. Talk about Geno throughout most of the episode, and they all think that the reason he isn't in Super Smash Bros. is because Nintendo doesn't want to pay for the rights. Alex also thinks that Nintendo gave Square, the developers of Super Mario RPG, full control over the game, since they were the only developers credited.
Jirard navigates his way through the Forest Maze to battle, and beat, Bowyer and his Flunkies to obtain the 2nd Star Piece, as well as obtaining the party member Geno.
- Geno's real name is ♥♪!?, but since it's hard to pronounce, he goes by Geno.
- In Japanese, the symbols that show Geno's real name are actually nothing, as they don't mean anything.
- The music from the Forest Maze was going to be in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
- Bowyer might be a pun on Bowser, as he resembles him, and is also meant to be a bow.
- Bowyer's name in Japanese is "Yuminpa" which is based off of the word "Yumi," which is the Japanese term for bows.
- In Bowyer's artwork, his eyes are red, but his in-game sprites have blue eyes.
