Super Mario Land (World) --> Super Mario Land (World) (GBC Enhanced)

There are a lot of GB games with improved colors on GBC.

This game doesn't have any programmed colors for GBC, though. The Game Boy Color itself (or specifically its boot rom) is what is responsible for the colors you see when you put Super Mario Land in the GBC system. It decides the palettes based on a game's header name, should that header name be among those listed in the boot rom's data bank.

The Super Game Boy assigns a sort of custom palette to games older than it in much the same way (including Super Mario Land).

So Super Mario Land is not actually GBC enhanced (and is far too old to be; they probably weren't even thinking about the possibility of the GBC at the time).
