Contrary to popular belief, Smithy is not the same of the sword that plunges into Bowser's Keep. The sword is called Exor, and it is actually Smithy's means of transportation and way of linking the two universes. Even a commercial promoting the game got the names wrong.

Culex, the boss behind the sealed door in Monstro Town, is said by many to be a character from Final Fantasy IV (II in America). The music in the background during his sequences is also from the Final Fantasy games. With the advent of Final Fantasy II in America, we have learned what most new all along: that was a load of bull. However Culex was indeed meant to share some traits with Final Fantasy final bosses in general. Furthermore, Culex fights with four crystals, which was a major plot point in Final Fantasy IV.

Though this game is almost never referenced in other Mario titles, there are a few references. For instance, a Geno doll appears in the Mario and Luigi RPG series, and Bowser sarcastically calls Mario "friend" in Super Mario 64, since they teamed up in this game.
