I'm actually kind of okay with that one, mainly because Mario doesn't really look like the Ossan that he was once described as. If you shave the 'stache, he could probably pass for someone in their mid-to-late 20s.

Who said someone in their 20s isn't allowed to have a bushy mustache?

I'm a living proof.

I'm under my 20s and I have a bushier than average mustache.

For more complicated reasons, I like thinking of Mario and Luigi as being in their low-to-mid 30s.
May Walkazo always be remembered on MarioWiki for years to come.

well idk maybe he could pass as 24, but i like to think of mario as the kind of person who's older than he looks because he takes great care of himself

i could see him being 35 like j-yoshi above me

I refuse to accept that SMB3 was staged.

Not only that but in the Japanese script of the games, Ashley talks about herself in the third person, which in Japanese is basically something only Stupid Babies do

highschool girls in anime do it all the time though if they're trying to make them seem cutesy or air headed so i don't think it's necessarily an indicator that they intended her to be a particular age. not that i disagree that 15 is probably older than they had in mind

The whole "Bowser turning Toads into stone" thing in the original Super Mario Bros. manual is also another one that I do not support.

The only time a Toad has ever been inside a block was during those rescue missions in NSMBWii where Mario and co. needed to escort them to a flagpole.

I don't care what Nintendo says.  Mario's a whole lot shorter than 71 inches.

My headcanon is that Mario is 64 inches because N64 jokes give me life. Probably another reason the first three Paper Mario games appeal to me so. Screw the metric system!

Isn't the idea that the friends trapped in blocks referred to the powerups rather than Toads?

People never thought of this that way.

Some bricks happened to be traps for them, and those you could break just were ordinary blocks that were always there.

Bingo. The same manual that says the Toads were turned into/trapped in brick blocks says that the blocks that give items (which are unbreakable) are the one that are/contain the transformed/trapped Toads. Of course, the same people who believe that Mario "murders the transformed Toads" also think that it's the same Toad in the first 7 castles and that Sarasaland is just a desert.

Lots of unintentional alliteration in that first sentence.

I reject anything that says Bowser doesn't want to kill Mario.

And I don't see the harm in him turning Toads into blocks. He just hadn't bothered doing it since.

Peach was not kidnapped nearly as many times as the games make it appear, and Bowser actually comes up with more creative plans.
