Luigi's Double Jump
Move Luigi next to an enemy and jump, then press jump again at the peak of Luigi's leap. If your timing was right he'll jump even higher.
Reuse Vegetables
Pick up a vegetable then find an enemy, preferably one in the air near the height of your character. Get directly next to him, wait for him to get to the top of his jump, throw it, then immediately run after it. You should end up catching it. Also,you can sometimes get on top of thrown vegetables after hitting an enemy or two with them and pick them up.
Unlimited 1up's
World 5-3 Climb up ladder to begin level. Pull up first plant from ground, it is a shell. Release shell then jump on. The shell will continue to go back and forth killing the bombs thrown by the albatrosses. After 6 or so the knocked off bombs turn into 1-up's. Sometimes the bombs are dropped on you or close to you. It does help to duck down to avoid these. This works on Game Boy, I'm not sure about other games.
Warp to World 4
In level 1-3 go to the area just before the brick background. Pick up the plants until you get a bottle. Then go past the brick background until you find a pot and throw the bottle on it. Go through the door and down the pot into World 4.
Warp to World 5
To warp to level 5, first get to level 3-1. When you enter the first door, fall all the way down. You also have to be in the middle as you fall. When you stop, you will find a platform with a door. Enter the door, then you have to look for the potion in the grass. Pick it up, then throw it on the ground, enter the door in cyberspace, and go into the vase and you will be at level 5.
Warp to World 6I.
In level 4-2 In the area with the whales find a bottle and throw it on the next pot. Enter the doorway and go down the pot into World 6.
Warp to World 7
Work your way to level 5-3. (It would be a good idea to choose Luigi for this level because of his superb jumping skills.) Go up the ladder at the beginning of the level, and then jump up onto the ledge above the ladder. As soon as you get on top of the ledge, grab the first grass on the right. It is a potion. Use the potion and go through the door. Now, while in Sub-space, go down through the jar and voila! Now you're in Level 7!

Easter eggs

Have the Subspace music (Super Mario Bros. Theme) Keep Playing
To do this glitch, you will need a potion and a star. Grab a potion and find five cherries in order to get a star. Get the star, and throw the potion and go into the door. Wait until the star is just about to wear off, then go back out of the door. If done correctly, the Super Mario Bros. Theme that would've been playing in Subspace (which is the area that the Potion takes you to) should be playing, even though you're not in Subspace! Since the music will keep playing (since you're not in Subcon, so time doesn't run out), you can hear the full song, which actually last around 14 seconds (whereas when in Subspace, it kicks you out after about 7 secs, so you can't normally hear the full version). The song will keep playing until the next track change (e.g. Picking a star up, going into Subspace again, etc.).
