I've never understood why Luigi looks like that. He looks fine in all the other GC games.
everything about Luigi was weird, but what got me was why Luigi had shoelaces

In Super Mario Odyssey, I discovered this when I was throwing Cappy to pop Luigi's balloons without jumping, which is possible in Shiveria because there is a small snow wall that I can stand on without jumping. So what did I discover? Throwing Cappy the 3rd time in a row will make Mario throw Cappy faster than usual (covering distance is still the same), and he even makes a different grunt if you do so. Because Mario was on a small incline, Cappy would be at a higher level since he levels himself after a fixed amount of time, which was why he didn't pop Luigi's balloons.

Basically, Cappy is thrown faster at the third throw, and as far as I can tell, this is not documented. I guess you can call it a "hat trick".

If anybody is interested, I could post a Twitter video to show this in action.

Thank you for reading.

i also noticed that mario does a spin too, starting from the second throw i think. and a few spins with the third throw. its a really minor but neat thing.
speaking of which mario doesnt have idle animations in the darker side underground too. hes really determined

The Lordly Ladies' biker suits have been high-heeled since MKW.
May Walkazo always be remembered on MarioWiki for years to come.

EDIT: I made it myself. Which is why it looks so bad.

Baby Mario still has the most horrifying model in Mario Kart Wii.

Luma is referred to as gender ambiguous in Mario Tennis Aces.

I mean, it IS a species, there are most likely girl Lumas like there are boy ones.

It should stay like that way, and this applies to any other gender ambiguous creatures like Koopas, Bloopers, etc.

FINALLY someone has common sense.  It's just plain wrong to talk about species as if they're all the same gender.

Y'know, this seems to be how Japan sees Yoshi, Kirby, and even Toad. Remember the "Toad is genderless" myth? That's what Toads were until Toads started taking gendered appearances and NOA decided to make Toad a dude.

Bob-Ombs apparently count as Meteor Smash KOs in Ultimate in certain circumstances

In Mario Super Sluggers, if 3 or more characters share MVP at the end of a match, only 2 randomly selected characters will do their victory animations

In Mario Tennis US and of course , Aces when either side scores the NPC characters that are waving the player characters' flags start to cheer and jump or just become sad depending on who scored and who lost the point.

Thank you for reading.

I recently uploaded a video clip on Twitter to showcase this in action: https://twitter.com/i/status/1081598254599462912

Note that I am standing on a slight slope, which means that when I am throwing Cappy, he is thrown at the angle Mario is standing before he levels himself. Because the third time is faster, he will level himself at a higher ground, meaning that he will miss Luigi's balloons.

Thank you for reading.

For years I thought that Daisy's icon in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games was only of her head without her body, I only noticed last night that her body is there too, but because the collar on her shirt is wite it blends in with the background too much. I also think that part of her arm is on the right of the icon too, but I'm not sure about that.

Also if you place third or better in 100m Freestyle with Luigi he does a backflip in the water, it's quite cute and it's much more extreme than most of the other characters who either just spin around or put their arms up in the air.

Luigi does an elaborate break dance, so I just guess Luigi really wants to show off in those games. He's over doing it l, but can't blame him, not when Mario's around...

At first glance this Geno official art looks like his nose is his lip, so he looked to me that he is pouting, not noticing that he has a mouth below his nose.
