When the heck are the bros gonna get themselves some real chicks, and leave these princesses "in distress" where they continue to place themselves?

The princesses are the only women who look close enough to Earthlings for the brothers to feel attraction towards, and even they're a bit off. The duo certainly aren't gonna turn to Toadette and her ilk, they're not that desperate!

In fact, who knows if M&L can even feel empathy towards the toadstool people. Talking to them is probably like talking to a plant lump that whines and grovels at you. On the N64, Mario didn't even have anything to say to them - he just stared...

It's all aftereffects of being turned into bricks and fences in Super Mario Bros 1. Ever since then, the people of the mushroom kingdom just haven't had the same mental agility.

Aha! I found evidence that the coins are sometimes oblong.

Look at the hud images at the top left. Mario's head, coin count, and star coins. The coin is shown as an oval, but it's not in perspective! I knew I wasn't crazy.

Why did King Koopa turn into a grey henchman whenever I shoot fireballs at him?

That's not really bowser, each of the bowsers before the last one are common henchmen that bowser transformed to pose as him. When you kill them with fireballs they turn back into whatever they really are. If you kill Bowser with a fireball in world 8 he dies normal.

Mario and Luigi are plumbers, right? So, why they never use their usual tools??

Excalibur and the Golden Plunger are the only real plumbing equipment I've ever seen Mario use.

Bowser is King Koopa.
So THAT'S why it was confusing. I feel slightly less stupid now. Slightly. Only slighty.

It's funny, because when I think of King Koopa, I think this:


but Bowser makes me think this:


And although the differences are subtle, they're enough to make it seem like two different characters.

Any reason why Bowser's shell doesn't go around his front like it does on turtles?

Bowser is the name of the titular king of a race of turtle-like lizards known as koopas.

Bowser, king koopa.
Mario, plumber human.
