|On page 11 the book uses edited Japanese artwork from Super Mario Maker that changes the release years to the years that the games were released in the west with the exception of Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. Due to this the artwork erroneously places Super Mario Bros. 2 in front of Super Mario Land, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Super Mario World despite Super Mario Bros. 2 releasing before those games were released in the west. Super Mario Land is also placed in front of Super Mario Bros. 3 despite Super Mario Land releasing earlier in the west. These errors are fixed on page thirteen.|

The infinite lives trick is a glitch or exploit in several games in the Mario franchise and other related franchises. It often involves the player repeatedly hitting an enemy, often a Koopa Troopa, in a position were they can hit the enemy quickly giving them a large amount of extra lives in a short amount of time. Some of these tricks can be indefinitely performed while others can only be performed for a limited amount of time, often due to a Time Limit. This trick has been referenced several times.
List of infinite lives tricks
Super Mario series
Super Mario Bros. / Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels / Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
In Super Mario Bros. in World 3-1 the player can perform the infinite lives trick by jumping on a Koopa Troopa on the staircase in the end of the level. Once performed the player will repeatedly jump on the Koopa Troopa with the Koopa Troopa bouncing back from the staircase when hit, resulting in the player gaining lives every jump after the eighth jump.
In Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels the Infinite lives trick can be performed in World 1-1. In the start of the level there is a square-shaped formation of blocks with a Red Koopa Troopa inside the box. By hitting the second Brick Block while the Koopa Troopa is walking under the block it will fall onto the second Brick Block, and if it walks onto the forth Brick Block and the first and third Brick Blocks are destroyed the player can break two Brick Blocks above the second Brick Block to jump on the Koopa Troopa that is on the fourth Brick Block, making the player repeatedly jump on the Koopa Troopa, resulting in the player gaining lives every jump after the eighth jump.
Super Mario Bros. 3 / Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3
In Super Mario Bros. 3 the infinite lives trick can be performed in World 3-4. In this level if the player brings a Lakitu to a section where there is two blocks on flat ground and if the player throws a Shell in between the two blocks the Shell will repeatedly bounce between the two blocks and will hit the Lakitu's Spiny Egg, resulting in the player gaining lives each time the Shell hits a Spiny Egg after it hits several Spiny Eggs.
Super Mario World
In Super Mario World, in the level Chocolate Island 5 the player can perform an infinite lives trick if the player brings a Yoshi into the level. In the level there is a section with a P Switch and a Grey P Switch next to a set of five Rotating Blocks and a Question Block. By using a glitch to grab both of the P Switches at once then bringing them to the Rotating Block that is under the Rotating Block right of the Question Block and throwing them upwards at the Rotating Block right of the Question Block the P Switches will continuously hit and activate the Rotating Block. Due to this the Rotating Block will repeatedly release Yoshi Eggs, and due to a Yoshi already being present the Yoshi Eggs will turn into 1-Up Mushrooms.
Super Mario Advance
In Super Mario Advance the infinite lives trick can be performed in World 6-1, if the player throws a large Red Shell in between a tall jar and a Mushroom Block, where there is a small jar spawning Shy Guys in between the objects. The Red Shell will hit the Shy Guys repeatedly, resulting in the player gaining lives each time the Red Shell hits a Shy Guy after hitting Shy Guys several times.
Super Mario Sunshine

In the platform with a large amount of Strollin' Stus the player can spay three Stollin' Stus and jump on one of the sprayed Strollin' Stus to receive a 1-Up Mushroom. As the Strollin' Stus indefinitely respawn this can be done indefinitely.
Super Mario 64 DS
In Super Mario 64 DS the infinite lives trick can be performed in the level Whomp's Fortress, by, as Mega Mario, running into and continuously walking into the bridge in the top of the level. Doing this will continuously give the player extra lives until the Super Mushroom power-up runs out.

At the end of the level by bringing a Red Shell to the fourth stair on the end-of-level staircase as Super Mario, waiting for the Koopa Troopa to exit its Red Shell, and jumping back on the Koopa Troopa the player will repeatedly jump on the Red Shell giving the player a large amount of lives similar to the infinite lives trick in Super Mario Bros.
