They look kinda similar, no?
Like what's happening?

The rivalry is real
Two pieces of artwork, both made by Nintendo, are similar? So?
Except that if you look closer, Mario's orientation is not the same in them both. In the Super Mario Deluxe one, he's leaping outward from where the view is looking. In the Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga one, he's actually jumping into Luigi.

Similarly, Luigi's position is different in both images too. In SMD, he's jumping out same as Mario, but in the opposite direction. And finally in M&LSuStSa, he's not jumping at all, but trying to keep his balance while being pushed by Mario.
So really the images are quite different.

That aside, it is uncommon to see the bros. side by side heading into (or rather away from) the fray. So it's easy to the similarities of two rare occurrences. Good find!
