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.

Lol, it's from the animated series!! That why i didn't know it Cheesy

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.

I think Bowser just dethroned King Koopa and adopted Koopa's children (or just allied with them in coup). This would explain Baby Bowser's existence and why he is different from rest of Koopa children.

I think we have now concept for next Mario spinoff game starring Bowser in 70 hour long RPG about epic Koopa kingdom takeover  Shocked

I just went through every page and this thread is missing this video made earlier this year.

Also I want this to be the next Mario game.

Seen it before. As some people say, hipster mario, and the overdone mario is a normal guy on drugs theme. These ones are waay better:

To be honest I don't really like these ones as much.
Most of these are just gangster representations in modern world, especially the GTA and Rapper ones. Who's to say drugs aren't still involved in those representations of a Mafia Mario?
I actually really just enjoy the starting line of that video I linked.

"How many people are you willing to step on, to get what you want?"


As an honest frequent psychedelic drug user, I much rather appreciate the idea that Mario really is just fucked up on drugs. Shrug
Sorry that you think it to be unoriginal or cliche.
Sounds like you may think it's just an easy cop-out to explain things.

Why does everyone go with the cliche Mario is a depressive dude that hallucinates his adventures?

Consume some psychedelic drugs and it will all become very clear to you  Gentleman

Amanita muscaria is the mushroom from Mario.
And guess what, it's a poisonous psychoactive mushroom.
