Title: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: Glowsquid on April 14, 2013, 06:28:27 PM
Supper Mario Broth (http://www.suppermariobroth.com/) is a Tumblr account run by the former manager of Waluigious (remember that?). It serves as an insanely comprehensive archive of medias of obscure elements of the franchise, may they be comic and manga scans (most of them so obscenely obscure that they're not mentioned on the wiki), facts, ads, sound clips… etc. It also showcases the occasional fanwork and has a companion twitter (https://twitter.com/MarioBrothBlog), which share random facts about the series and (horrible) puns

It's a treat for the serious Mario fan and I like it. Anyone else's been following it?

Post by: Princess Mario on April 05, 2016, 09:35:51 PM
ZOMG I thought it was dead. This is a fantastic Mario resource site, I didn't really appreciate it until last yearish when I saw a lot of obscure Mario content and merchandising, not to mention very useful GIFs, but I discovered that it hasn't really updated so I thought it was dead.
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: Glowsquid on April 05, 2016, 11:12:55 PM
I noticed it resumed updating on April 1 but I was waiting to see if it was going to be a regular thing or if it's going to stop again shortly (as it did last time I bumped the thread).

Though if it doesn't, I can definitely flush plans for a mariowiki tumblr down the toilet.

Post by: Ray Trace on April 06, 2016, 02:05:43 PM
I love this blog as well. I think it made me found out about some very obscure and interesting things. I'd probably need to look at this place as a resource for any fun or interesting things to add to MarioWiki

I wonder if this is even a sprite rip or a screenshot. Maybe later, I'll find out.
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: Ray Trace on April 06, 2016, 08:10:37 PM
It's a sprite rip from that Jigsaw Puzzle minigame (the Extra Mode version of it, not the mini-game mode version of it) from Mario Party 4
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: Rin Kaenbyou on April 06, 2016, 09:47:31 PM
Did we really use this on the wiki?
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: Princess Mario on April 06, 2016, 10:25:24 PM
I looked up Jigsaw Jitters , which is the minigame that contains these sprites, but I haven't found images of them. That's why I'm wondering if it's an actual sprite rip, wherever Supper Mario Broth took this from.
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth

They probably dumped it with the Dolphin Emulator, considering they took free-look enabled screenshots in the past

Does anyone else think the one on the top right is Tamagon from Devil World? It has more in common with his in-game sprites (http://www.spriters-resource.com/nes/devilworld/sheet/21190/) than with the original boxart (http://static.nintendomaine.com/2014/12/Minute_trophee_smash-19.jpg) or his Melee trophy (http://www.models-resource.com/gamecube/ssbm/model/5335/). The one on the bottom left appears to be Bomb Jack (http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Bomb_Jack).

IIRC Japan didn't know about Ms. Pac-Man for most of the '80s. Midway made a whole bunch of sequels without Namco's permission but nowadays Namco treats those games like their own.
wait a sec, are those pogs?
They're milk caps according to the blog post.

There's some much cool stuff on here. The Goob Distribution one was really interesting. I had no idea that that was supposed to be Petey Piranha. I think the goop on the airstrip was shaped like Mario's head.

Also those Mario Party 6 backgrounds for the one minigame are beautiful.

I would love to see Charles Martinet read this, and probably do some improvising with what Mario said.

For your information, the full sheet is like this (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CqbeyfxWIAAjg6e.jpg).

The Nintendo Monopoly cards have Mario styled in rubberhose that I really liked. In fact, it would be cool to see an alternative style card in an actual Mario video game, though I imagine it would probably have a stylistic clash since Pixel Mario is usually the preferred style.

It's also really cute that all the Monopoly actions are translated to Mario-related ones. One of the funny ones is when the princess is in another castle, Mario had to "Advance to Yoshi". Another favourite is the Mario Party one where you have to collect money from every player.

Apparently, it's a tin tray, and it's official judging by the © in the bottom right. Also, here's a comment that addresses everything of note:

Quote from: /u/deepthaw
Does that cloud have a barcode for a mouth?
What kind of bizarro dimension does Luigi's room reside in? I don't recall any twisted carnival horror hallways like that in the games.
Has Bowser seen an eye doctor lately?
Are two two different distinct species of Toad? Those that have no legs and wear pants, and those with legs but don't wear pants?
That phone booth is clearly floating several feet above the floor, going by the line that's supposed to represent the border between floor and wall. Mario's kind of a dick if he makes his star-friends pay to use a payphone when they're visiting.
Mario's dad has seen some stuff. You can tell.
Continuing the "everything is animate" trend, the television antenna has eyes. And seems weirded out.
Mario's TV apparently has a screen made of paper.
That NES advantage, other than being bizarrely huge, has a lot of extra buttons. Mario's in the arcade stick modding scene, I see.
It's interesting that the flower pot, but not the flower has eyes and a face.
That goomba totally has arms.
Is that a Koopa Troopa on top of the phone booth? Why is he holding a flag? Maybe that's a stuff trophy of one of the many flagpoles Mario has conquered.

I kinda want someone to go completely in-depth and explain every detail that this thing got wrong.

So he smokes a pipe... and has a white, fluffy beard reminiscent of a certain Sailor Man's father (http://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_small/7/72648/2036661-poopdeckpappy.jpg)... EVEN WITH COPYRIGHT ISSUES, THE CONNECTION REMAINS. POPEYE IS MARIO'S FATHER. MARIO (and probably Wario too) IS DESCENDED FROM HERCULES (http://www.marioboards.com/index.php?topic=31576.msg1539160#msg1539160).

So this one (http://www.suppermariobroth.com/post/149919950995/all-coloring-book-images-from-super-mario-bros) uses images that I colored and submitted to the wiki, which I probably wouldn't have had Glowsquig not brought the "Armed Forces Pilot" page to my attention. This one time I was looking at a friend of a friend's brother's page on Facebook and his cover image was my coloring of the "Business Executive" page.

You reminded me to ask: How many times has something you added on the wiki ended up on Supper Mario Broth?

I remember uploading the rejected NSMB Wii boxart (http://www.mariowiki.com/images/c/c7/NintendoRecruitmentKit.jpeg) on the wiki, and the very next day it was posted on Supper Mario Broth's (now-defunct) twitter account. Not the only time it happened either.

This here's the origin of that whole Alfredo and Yellow Mario (http://www.mariowiki.com/User:SiFi) thing I sometimes ramble about. Stuart Ashen made a video of this board game with Guru Larry, where they concluded the blue player was "Alfredo" and the yellow one was Wario. But then I began to notice some more blue and yellow Marios throughout the series, and I began to realize the yellow one wasn't Wario.

A recent theory I've had is that the yellow one is Pietro, who claims to be the third Mario brother and proves it with facts only a member of the Mario family would know, but later on Luigi convinces him they're 9000 dollars in debt and he'll have to pay a third of that, and Pietro quickly comes clean and says he's a con man who learned the things he knew from "the plumber's who's who" and ditches the brothers.

But to me, that explanation seems more rushed and sketchy than his initial backstory, which makes me think he really is a long lost brother to Mario and Luigi, but his Wario-esque dishonesty and greed and Luigi's supposed cunning caused him to abandon that life for good. ...or did he? (http://www.mariowiki.com/User:SiFi#Yellow_Mario)

Who knows, maybe he has some connection to ~ario from the previous page of this thread.

Interesting that this is how Mario Party 9 looked like. Even this version lacks Luigi! If you don't remember, the first time Mario Party 9's box art was revealed, all playable characters except Luigi was visible, but the final version has Luigi in a castle in a distance.

I wonder what the 1994 manga was this showed this version of Waluigi. Looks like a very wild interpretation of Waluigi given how much "fatter" this one is.

It's interesting how Daisy's got no nose texture, because when I see Daisy's face, I thought it was odd when you look at her on the front and you can't see her nose, giving it an eerie look. This confirms my suspicion that something's off about her face.

I guess you can add this to the list of oddities about Daisy: Third eye, a second set of teeth, and now noseless (when viewed from the front).

Thanks for reading.
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: Princess Mario on December 14, 2016, 01:53:05 PM
She's not noseless, she just doesn't have a texture that gives her nose extra definition. Don't know why they didn't add extra detail as with every other character or thing, just a flat color. But anyhow, it's like saying the Mario Kart Wii Mario doesn't have a nose because iirc his face texture doesn't have it.

By the way, did you remember when you had some doubts about Supper Mario Broth obtaining material from the Wiki? Well...

http://www.suppermariobroth.com/post/154367912075/idle-animations-of-the-koopalings-from-paper

The animated sprites were somewhat... familiar, so I downloaded them and used WinMerge to compare it to the ones I had uploaded to the Wiki.

The results? They are the same files!

Considering how I ddin't even work that much on them once I sorted out the alignment of the single frames and that I'm not even sure about the frames' timing since I didn't manage to record the game yet, seeing them featured elsewhere surprises me...

The Third Mario brother created by vinesauce aka Vinny. He wears orange and has a droopier moustache compared to the other Bros. He's called Sponge because he soaks up the negative emotions of others, and as such is constantly depressed. He was a character in Vinny's stream series of Tomodachi Life. He was pretty much never happy, and his love was unrequited by every girl he asked out. His only friend on the whole island was David Bowie.

This blog reposted a fan art of mine a while ago, I was flattered. It's not there now though, probably because of the new focus on exclusively official stuff (though that doesn't explain why they still post bootlegs)

Get ready for an incoming wall of text...

From Iwata Asks Nintendo DS Volume 8: Yoichi Kotabe (http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/ds/dsi/7/3):

Quote from: Shigeru Miyamoto
Originally, ever since we made Donkey Kong, on many occasions I had done rough sketches of Mario in pencil and then given them to an external illustrator to polish up. When we came out with Super Mario Bros., I was thinking about asking a professional manga artist or a well-known illustrator to do the art, but time was running out, so I drew the original art for the package myself.

And that art is
(http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/_ui/images/ds/vol8/image_mario_package.jpg)

So, the first design of Bowser came from Miyamoto himself:
Quote
Miyamoto: Bowser changed a lot, too. I'd been drawing Mario for quite a while, so there were a lot of things on how I wanted him to look like, but I hadn't drawn Bowser that much, so I couldn't get the lines to come together right. I like Toei Animation's work from around the time of Alakazam the Great, and the ox that appears in that...

Kotabe: Oh, I remember you talking about that.

Miyamoto: I told him how I liked that ox.

Kotabe: The ox king. Miyamoto-san liked that ox, and that was how he imagined Bowser. When you see the package art he drew, Bowser does look a bit like an ox. But after that, Takashi Tezuka said...

Miyamoto: He said it was a turtle.

Kotabe: I thought, "Oh, it's a turtle?"

Everyone: (laughs)

Miyamoto: I'd been drawing something completely incomprehensible-a turtle's body with an ox's head! (laughs) Through our discussions, his appearance eventually came together, though. Since Bowser was in the turtle family together with the Koopa Troopas, we began to see similar lines between the two, so we copied those as faithfully as possible and move on to the next illustration. I started congratulating myself, saying, "Wow, I can really make Bowser look cool now!"
But there's more to this story, as Tezuka's involvement in Bowser's redesign is actually acknowledged in the only sketch of said redesign that I could find (and that I'm spamming to death and beyond, since it has Morton, Wendy, Lemmy and Iggy two years before they were introduced...):

(https://www.mariowiki.com/images/f/f7/Bowser_Koopalings_sketch.png)

The caption pretty much says that the this version of Bowser's design was the result of a collaboration between Kotabe and Tezuka.

In any case, this was the final result of Bowser's redesign:

(http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/_ui/images/ds/vol8/image_kuppa_illust.gif)

I'm pretty sure you already saw these images, as they were reused many times for Bowser's artwork images.

I don't know what to think about that image you posted, it's a bit suspicious, as all Bowser's artwork images we saw here have the spiked shell, just like Bowser's sprite in SMB and SMB: TLL.

I think we should first of all clarify what is the source of that image.

EDIT: ok, in the description the author is stated to be Miyamoto, I wonder what is the source, though, as it would be very interesting to know it.

it's not, it's a shadow from ambient occulsion baking (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambient_occlusion)

Quote
In computer graphics, ambient occlusion is a shading and rendering technique used to calculate how exposed each point in a scene is to ambient lighting.
In other words, that area in Luigi's cap receives nearly no light. Therefore, this shadow is translated to the 2D texture to save rendering processing while giving an illusion of shadow.

According to responses on the Twitter (and it was posted on the MarioWiki Discord), depicting actors in costumed animals is considered sensitive because it dispels the illusion that the character is indeed real, and places that use costumed characters maintain keeping the illusion quite seriously.

...and continuing with the Mario wireframe lamp, which was already referenced in the "Look at it" thread:

...and then there's a Mario that's not up to scale, so he appears bigger than the tower he's climbing!

I definitely know I posted those Bowser concepts in another thread, if not all at the same time. The Goombas and Toads also wouldn't look out of place in the "LOOK AT IT" thread.

It was a different time.
It'd be easier to list adaptations that actually followed the source material

Oh yeah, this is what the original design for the Mushroom Kingdom was like:

Looks like Supper Mario Broth now mention the Super Mario Sunshine tag line in one of their Twitter posts: https://twitter.com/MarioBrothBlog/status/1019250919156998144

Quote
By comparing different visible parts of the tagline in Super Mario Sunshine covers in different regions, we can reconstruct the full tagline as "Mario Has More Moves Than Ever And You'll Have To Master Them [To Spray] (Europe) / [All To Sprinkle] (US) Water In The Sunshine!"

In this post, you can see two recordings of gameplay of Super Mario World side by side. Both start at a pipe near the middle of the Chocolate Island 1 level, then the footage on the left goes inside the pipe to get launched over the gap, while the footage on the right jumps over the gap instead. This results in an unexpected difference at the next gap with the springboard: if Mario goes into the pipe, there is a level midpoint tape above it. If Mario does not go into the pipe, the midpoint is absent.

The reason for this is that even though it may look like Mario is immediately emitted back into the level when he enters the pipe, he actually enters a parallel version of the level instead, one almost entirely identical but with small differences such as the existence of the midpoint tape.

I have registered on this forum specifically to address this post. It is true that I occasionally browse this forum and that I have taken the idea for the Mario Kart: Double Dash metal reflection post from your observation. However, I must note that this happened before I introduced my current sourcing and attribution policy, which has been in place since September 2017.
I have amended the post in question on Supper Mario Broth with an attribution of the discovery to you. I am currently in the process of sourcing all posts predating the policy, but please understand that with thousands of posts, this is a very time-consuming endeavor.

Hello to you, Supper Mario Broth! I am happy to see you addressed that point!

If you do read this, I have a question to ask you: occasionally you will take long breaks between posts, and then on an unexpected day, you will post discoveries non-stop, and the cycle goes on. What do you normally do during the downtime?

Thank you for reading.

This is a very good question.
At any given time, I have materials for hundreds of posts I could make. In fact, right now, my file listing possible posts has 680 entries. However, most of these entries are of a lower interest to my readers, based on my understanding of what my readers find interesting, so the only time I can post them is between high-interest posts, so as to not bore my readers.
I do not have many high-interest posts saved up, and when I run out, I do not want to fill up the time with low-interest posts as that would - and in fact has in the past - lead to my readers believing I am "running out of material". Therefore, I would rather take short hiatuses, or in some cases longer hiatuses, to find more high-interest posts than to jeopardize the perceived quality of my blog.
Ironically, my Twitter account was first created as an outlet for low-interest posts, but as it gained popularity, I found myself unwilling to disappoint that part of my readership either.

Here's a question I've been willing to ask...

If you have archived everything that was there before you came along (I'm assuming you have due to the reuploads of some of that stuff), would it be possible to create another blog and move it there?

Sorry if this sounds pushy and/or mean.

While I did have a backup of the previous owner's material at one point, and planned to reupload the content over time, the backup was sadly lost due to hardware failure. It was entirely my fault to not have created a cloud backup. I have contacted the original owner, but there is not a backup that person could provide either.
All I can say is that I am sorry for deleting and losing the content, but in my defense, the previous owner said that content was not important and that I could delete it freely. If I had known how many people were fond of the content, I would not have listened. Please understand that the blog was much less popular at the time and I could not have foreseen the impact my decision would have.

Of course. Sourcing is important and I do understand that trying to trace back everything isn't exactly a fun service.

But thanks a lot, I didn't know you'd register. I have no clue what's going on with the sourcing and I don't feel like making a tumblr to ask questions and I didn't expect a response lol.

I do hope you acknowledge other things. I've noticed that you had a comment about Luigi's "stain" on his hat (http://www.suppermariobroth.com/post/172145855065/luigis-model-in-super-mario-odyssey-differs-from), but I need to point out, if you haven't noticed already, it's technically a result from ambient occlusion (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambient_occlusion) baked onto the diffuse map. Basically, they took Luigi's model (which is already UV unwrapped, i.e. right before textures are applied) and exposed it to lights, and the results are translated to texture format. If you're familiar with Photoshop or GIMP, particularly the blending options like "Multiply", you can use this result as part of the color texture. Since Luigi's emblem is a polygon, it has its own shadow, and so that area behind Luigi's emblem is covered in shadow, and it shows up as a "stain".

But you don't have to confuse readers. You can say it's a technically shadow.

Oh btw you're not patronizing to me. I might have came off a little impatient though.

I have corrected the post with the sentence "Removing the emblem shows that the shadow from the emblem is part of the cap’s texture." I hope this is satisfactory.

I hate to be picky again, but finally, I recommend that if you're going to to model comparisons (http://www.suppermariobroth.com/post/176812263550/comparison-between-the-complexities-of-marios), you should show the textures too! And although optional, I also recommend the normal maps and specular maps that go with the textures!

I don't want to force you to make more changes, but keep that in mind.

And although optional, I also recommend the normal maps and specular maps that go with the textures!

The purpose of that post was to specifically compare the polygon count, not the entirety of the models' different attributes. You must keep in mind that Tumblr is not like ordinary blogs. I cannot put more than a certain number of images into a post, I cannot insert images between text without it resulting in formatting problems when viewed on other people's blogs, etc. This makes it difficult to make long posts, and posts that attempt to make in-depth analyses. Therefore, I am constrained to only concentrating on one aspect of the thing I am presenting at a time. Perhaps in the future, I will compare the models' textures and other properties as well, but please understand that doing it all in one post is not fit for the format of my blog.
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth

oops, just remembered that the Mario's mouth thing in Double Dash post is probably from a separate environment map (https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/3ds-max/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2016/ENU/3DSMax/files/GUID-34D36047-F87E-4FAC-912F-CDFD8CE82937-htm.html) that was created from this render setup (https://www.mariowiki.com/File:MarioLuigiDD3.png), and they didn't notice that it was inconsistent with Mario and Luigi's facial expressions, I suspect.

You can leave that out if you wish, though, just figured you might be interested in why the reflection shows up strange.

I must admit that I do not actually know any Japanese, and have to go off other people's descriptions and translations to present Japanese content. This is all entirely my fault and I will simply not mention the word 'transliteration' in the future as I clearly do not have a solid grasp of its intricacies.
Edit: I have deleted the post. I will no longer make posts that rely on inaccurate information in this manner.
Title: Re: Supper Mario Broth
Post by: 2257 on August 22, 2018, 09:11:24 PM
well, since it concerned you enough to think it was worth deleting, i'll try to explain it more

'transliteration' means rendering text that is originally in one script into another. wikipedia says that typically that means capturing the original characters unambiguously rather than the original sounds, but my experience is that in the case of japanese, it is almost always used to mean capturing the sounds. 'romanisation' refers to the subset of transliteration that outputs text in the latin alphabet

the most important systematic romanisations of japanese are called hepburn and kunrei-shiki, and there are various other, less well-known systems as well. broadly, they all tend to agree on most details, but there are some areas where they disagree (long vowels, unstable consonants, and the rendering of ん / ン account for most differences).

the problem is that when nintendo renders the japanese names of their characters in latin script, they often don't follow any system of romanisation at all, but make up some kind of idiosyncratic spelling instead. yossy, yosi, yosh and yoshi are all ad-hoc spellings of the japanese name, ヨッシー (and 'yosh' might even be an error; i was told that that image doesn't depict an official product). 'koopa' is another example: the original spelling is クッパ, which should be rendered 'kuppa' according to all of the romanisation systems i'm familiar with, but nintendo frequently prefers the idiosyncratic spelling

anyway, had it been me, i don't think i would have deleted the tweet over this. of course, it's your twitter and you can do what you want with it, but the basic fact that yoshi's name has been spelled various ways in the latin alphabet by official material is true. it's just the explanation of why that probably happened that wasn't accurate

So this is apparently how Princess Peach could have looked like, but they went with a human design in the end. Personally, if that were to be Peach's design, my first impression of hew wouldn't be that she's generic. Then again, the people who loved Peach wouldn't have like this one.

I have taken a look at it and the amount of content to sift through to find the deleted posts is daunting, so please understand if this will take me a while, especially with the new added responsibilities of the Patreon I just launched. However, once I am finished, I will contact the original author to get some additional commentary (as my readers seem to enjoy that) and publish everything in an Imgur album. You will be credited prominently for your work.

So this is apparently how Princess Peach could have looked like, but they went with a human design in the end. Personally, if that were to be Peach's design, my first impression of hew wouldn't be that she's generic. Then again, the people who loved Peach wouldn't have like this one.

Thank you for reading.
Actually, that comes from a NA guide released in 1987, considering how in 1986 Princess Peach's modern design by Kotabe was finalized, I'm not sure if that was an actual design from Nintendo Co., Ltd. or just one of those marvelous "reinterpretations" that were so common at the time.

The name of the book is 'How to Win at Super Mario Bros.', and I found out not long ago that it's actually a localization of Tokuma Shoten's スーパーマリオブラザーズ 完全攻略本 (Super Mario Bros. kanzen kouryaku bon, or "perfect capture book"), which was apparently one of the best selling pieces of literature in Japan in 1985. So yeah, the art is actually from Japan after all...!

Finding old posts is pretty hard! What happened to that post related to Mario Strikers Charged (the Brawl trophy one in particular)? I found that Super Smash Bros. Brawl is an odd choice to single out that particular Mario, especially with the conclusion being that it's the only Mario game where Mario has visible gums and individual teeth.

IIRC at one point I saw my Sticker Star-style Dimentio (https://www.deviantart.com/fawfulthegreat64/art/PMSS-Style-Dimentio-2-0-410040227) shared on Supper Mario Broth years ago. Looks like that's not in the archive though. It's terrible art anyway but I wish I could verify if it was indeed shared or if it's my memory fabricating it out of 2 unrelated memories :P

As for finding old posts, I constantly delete old posts that have people show me counterexamples to my point. My policy is, "if anyone can show proof that the post is not 100% correct, delete it immediately". And if you have an example of another Mario model with separate teeth, I will delete the above post as well.

It was reblogged by the original author sometime in 2013, but was deleted by me in 2016 when I removed all fan content posts. In retrospect I wish I simply put a disclaimer on those posts instead. I apologize. You must understand that back when I removed those posts, I was under the impression that it would infuriate readers to leave them up, as they would be confused as to which of them were factual and which were not. The disclaimer idea simply did not come to me until it was too late.

I find that post still very odd. I'm not sure why you mention "within the Super Smash Bros. series" when it's a notable thing for the Mario series as a whole. You can tell from the responses that the context of "within the Super Smash Bros. series" doesn't really work, so I think the post is giving people misleading impressions. And I think this is a better image to show Mario's teeth, as his mouth is spread and you can even see the gum details there.

If you're going for shock value (which the post has accomplished apparently), this image better suits the bill. Anyone who says "it's a mouthguard" hasn't played Mario Strikers Charged.

You are right. I have deleted the post for being misleading. Thank you for pointing this out.

absolutely love this blog, been following it since 2016, keep up the good work!
i was wondering if the carrot sprite could change someday to some other carrot, maybe similar to its artwork?
not asking it to be changed, its very good already and its iconic, so id be perfectly fine if it stayed! im just curious if that could happen.

Is there an easier way to browse through older posts? I wish there's a way to check out all the tags rather than parse through posts of related content and then finding the tags there.

There used to be a search function, but an update at some point removed it.

Thank you very much. The sprite has now been in use for too long to change it, as doing so may lead to confusion whether this is really the same person, especially after a history of not changing it for six years. I have drawn other versions of it before, such as the one used for the "Supper Mario Broth Supper Show" under the membership tiers on my Patreon, but those are not to be used as icons.

I'm afraid that's true, but not for a lack of trying. I have zero knowledge of web development, as this was handled by the original author (I merely did the artwork), so I do not know how to fix this. I have tried several times to insert code for search bars that would work in the same way the old one did, only to fail. However, there is a workaround. Simply input www.suppermariobroth.com/search/ followed by your search term into the address bar. This should still work; you may also use spaces within your search term. For example, "www.suppermariobroth.com/search/waluigi wario" will bring up results containing both Waluigi and Wario.

Heh, of course I knew that. I just didn't remember earlier and I was too dang lazy to try to do it again.

There is an interview on Vice about Supper Mario Broth here: https://waypoint.vice.com/en_us/article/vbnewa/meet-the-meticulous-fan-behind-the-internets-most-meticulous-mario-blog

Excerpts from the interview:
Quote
“[long pause] The people that I could turn to normally in real-life at all had their own difficulties,” said the blog’s author, who asked to be addressed as Broth, out of respect for his privacy. “Normally, I do not try to trouble my readers. I know that people come to Supper Mario Broth just to see some Mario facts. They do not come here to listen to my problems.”

His problems aren’t simple, though, and have repeated in recent years. A little while back, he was forced to sell every video game he’s ever owned, including the consoles they ran on. The majority of his collection was Mario-related, and some of the items went back decades.

“It was very saddening, but I'm, of course, more glad that this could help me out of the trouble I had at that time than than the fact that I needed to sell them,” he said. “Because in the end—this just may sound a little bit sentimental—but these Mario games are all living on inside my own head. I do not need consoles to close my eyes and imagine myself playing Super Mario Bros.”
Quote
The two knew each other in real-life, and bonded over a shared hobby. The name Supper Mario Broth came from a brainstorming session where Super Mario Borscht and Soapy Mario Bath were both names they almost settled on. But they decided to stay in the realm of food, thanks to the series’ regular theming around the topic, and Supper Mario Broth stuck.

Thank you for reading.

I didn't know there is a different Supper Mario Broth blog dedicated to smaller findings! It's here, and it's called "Small Mario Findings": https://smallmariofindings.tumblr.com

As to why it's called "Small Mario Findings"?

(https://66.media.tumblr.com/972842e907551df56e923fcfe21f75e5/tumblr_pgc6flJ3281wnhojco1_400.png)

In Super Mario Maker for the Nintendo 3DS, it is normally not possible to obtain a Mystery Mushroom, the costume-changing item from the Wii U version of Super Mario Maker. However, prior to version 1.03, oversights like Big Magikoopas being able to turn a block into a Mystery Mushroom resulted in players being able to obtain it. When Mario collects a Mystery Mushroom in this version, his appearance remains that of Small Mario, despite no Mystery Mushroom granting that costume (the closest being Costume 2, which is Small Mario with a modern red-and-blue color scheme). As the costume retains all normal Costume Mario functionality, Mario can crouch, which is the sprite depicted here.

However, the sprite is not truly unique to the 3DS version. It is possible to see it in a different resolution in the Wii U version, by using a “30th Anniversary Mario - Classic Color” amiibo and obtaining a Big Mushroom, which turns him into a version of Small Mario that is twice the size, i.e. with each pixel being a 2x2 pixel square. The Big Mushroom grants Mario a different set of abilities from the Mystery Mushroom, but crouching is still among them, meaning that when Big Mario crouches, he uses this exact sprite - but at twice the size.

This sprite was chosen as the avatar image for this blog due to the fact that the blog’s name is “Small Mario Findings” and it depicts Small Mario; and also due to the fact that it is, in both the literal sense and the metaphorical sense, a small finding: it is a smaller version of a regular sprite that can only be seen under very specific circumstances.

This is why the blog's header has Super Mario Maker's font.

I will attempt to answer all questions posed in that thread even if they are posted much later, so please don't hesitate to ask me something even if you can only get around to it on a different day. Alternatively, you can always just ask me something right here, in this thread, and I will reply!

A trivial point, but since it was brought up in the Discord server, I think it's fair to notice you of this:

I think you meant "in the games", as there was effectively official hand-drawn material showing them from a front view:

I am very sorry about the sloppy way I have worded that Tweet. The replies have shown me that my readers take my words very seriously and I cannot use words like "always" to mean "almost always". The correct way to word that sentence would have been "As Baby Yoshis' appearances in Mario games have only been in games with 2D gameplay, it is rarely possible to get a good look at them from the front". I will word my posts more carefully in the future to avoid making implications I did not intend.
