Although, since mario bros. 2 is just a dream, maybe birdo was female all along, and Mario subconciously thinks she's 'manish.'

Well actually the game Captain rainbow for wii lays even more suspicion. Noir
S/He have been sent to jail because s/he was seen in women toilet. The player must investigate a find a proof s/he's female (some buzzing thing under the pillow) but we never get to see "the thing"... Roll Eyes

Maybe s/he's just hermaphrodite who have preference for her/his female side  Huh?

Are Boos living or dead? For that matter, are Dry Bones and Bony Beetles living or dead?
What process does a Koopa have to go through to become a Dry Bones?
Oh, and how about Dry Bowser in NSMB? It seemed like Bowser died a horrible death in World 1's castle. I remember being all, "ha ha take that you giant jerk. Oh, it's Bowser so he should be fine OH HOLY CRAP HIS SKIN BOILED OFF." Despite being apparently 'brought back to life', does this mean Bowser is basically undead from now on?

And we know Bowser has all those children, so where's his wife? (This one honestly eats me up inside.)

Oh, you know who gets to make those children. Well, hello there!

A hint, her name start with a P. And there's a reason she never tightens security.

You know, it'd be awesome if someone went ahead and made a full game with actual logical explanations for all the insanity of the Mario games, showing a world that seems cheery and colorful, but is a horrifying nightmare of Lovecraftian proportions behind the mask.

There's lots of princesses about but where are the kings and queens?

And how about that Princess Daisy, eh? What's she doing making all these royal visits when she should be ruling over her own kingdom, wherever the hell that is.
If you'll notice, Sarasaland didn't show up or get referenced ever after Super Mario Land; meanwhile, in the time since, other than leisure activity Daisy has been shown mostly engaging in various business pursuits, for example operating a commercial cruise liner. I think what happened here is clear. Daisy is barred from returning to Sarasaland, either because it has engaged in a democratic revolution and exiled the monarch, or more likely because it was conquered and/or destroyed by aliens during the Super Mario Land plot; her situation is much like that of exiled royalty in European high society, who are no longer recognized by their home country but are able to still live the high life through the self-sustaining fortunes the monarchy stashed in offshore accounts and was able to hold for themselves rather than returning to the people after their fall.

Daisy is of course welcomed in the monarchist society of the Mushroom Kingdom, which clearly seems to honor title and power above all else and allows organized crime leaders (such as Bowser) to hobnob and openly participate in the nobility's sports pursuits alongside high government functionaries.

Love this idea. I always thought Daisy should get more plot and game time.

Oh. Oh God. I love everything you just said.


This thread is beautiful.

EDIT: but wouldn't P. start putting on some wait after that many pregnancies? And does this mean it always takes Mario about nine months to rescue her?

Incidentally, the reason originally given for Bowser always kidnapping the princess is that for some unexplained reason, she's the only one who can undo the curse and return everyone to their normal forms.  One can only wonder why she apparently didn't do so, after being rescued.

Yeah!  Instead she just turned all the goombas into those hardshelled beetles.

How the Mario timeline fits in:

Bowser's kids are actually faulty clones generated by Mushroom Kingdom style magic. Which is why they were rejected upon the creation of the true clone, Bowser Jr.

Well, why should Bowser need Ms. P? There's no evidence that points to Bowser being a mammal, let alone having matching genetic data with P. He can be of a hermaphroditic race. He could be choosing other Koopas, maybe certain "good specimens" among his soldiers so they can fertilize each other and both bear offspring, like some lizards. Or he could be just auto-fertilizing.

Of course, I'm still open to the idea of P having kinky tendencies that involve fantasies of kidnapping and being saved and stereotypical Italian macho men in overalls and usage of a lot of "magic" mushrooms.

I remember seeing in a Nintendo Power way back that somebody made the connection between Koopas and Yoshis. They bear some similarities, the most damning is the premature shell on Yoshi's back. Are they long lost relatives or something? Why are the Yoshi's so enamored with Mario in the first place? In Super Mario World I'd jump off their backs mid-air, sending them into an abyss, to save my own hide. I'm sure after a couple of times they'd catch on and say "fuck this shit".

Do Mario and Luigi have a secretly antagonistic relationship? Mario always seems to be upstaging that poor green guy.

Also, is there one guy whose name is Yoshi, or is it a species called the Yoshis, or both?

And why do the Japanese think that things you eat can be turned into eggs?

And we know Bowser has all those children, so where's his wife? (This one honestly eats me up inside.)
The species of mushroom that makes you large. SMB Question
Maybe it's a metaphor for drugs.


In one of the Mario Party games, when you're at the "Mushroom Shop", the store owner makes remarks like "There you go. Woa, great stuff! He he". Or such. And think about it.. "There's this guy.. wait, he's a plumber. But the pipes take him to a .. heh, MUSHROOM kingdom. When he eats the mushrooms, HE GETS HUGE and then.. then he eats a flower, and SHOOTS FIREBALLS. and kills turtles and oh man, its gonna be awesome"

Super Mario Sunshine. "Mama Peach."  WTF I hate that you're right.

Actually, we are shown in the game that Peach isn't Bowser Jr.'s mother (of course that could have been a lie on Bowser Sr.'s part) I wonder how a normal family day looks in the Koopa household. One dad, witha full-time job as 'evil' tyrant and eight kids (of which 7 are probably neglected by now)

I also got thinking on Boos. They are ghosts... are they the ghosts of the Goombas and Koopas Mario indiscriminately kills repeatedly? (could explain why they can't stand to look at him) Or are they Toads who just failed at life?

How does the angry sun in the desert work? Is it a minitiature sun with a consciousness, or the actual sun? If the latter, why is it so small? And why doesn't it destroy the world when it enters the atmosphere (or even moves at all, completely throwing the planets' orbits out of whack)

How does the eternal staircase work? Was it built into the royal castle before Bowser snatched the Princess away that time. (Maybe it was a security device installed to prevent Bowser from getting past the staircase, which again demonstrates the suckyness of the Mushroom Kingdoms security personnel)

Why does Peach carry a Toad around in her dress? Apart from deflecting projectiles with... uh...

When Bob-ombs explode, how do they keep from.. y'know, exploding, when they explode?

Gosh I feel like such a nerd.  Durr...?
