The ending of Super Mario Land great, two hectic battles followed by such uplifting music when the credits roll!

Learning about subpixels.

That's probably not everyone's idea of fun, but it opens up a whole new world of gameplay possibilities.

The first time I was shown the hidden exit in world one in SMB3, sending me to my untimely doom in a much later and for me unbeatable world. It was magic.
