Super Mario Brothers 2 introduced a lot of cool, quirky gameplay aspects to the series, but one of my personal favorites was the idea the jumping onto an enemy's back might not immediately kill said enemy. The idea of riding on an enemy over an otherwise deadly obstacle opened the game's level design up to all sorts of interesting possibilities. My favorite of which is today's moment.
