Unpopular opinions about the Mario series

Penguin Mario

🐧Penguins. Lots of them.🐧🐧🐧🐧
The Dream Team art style is better than Superstar Saga and I will tolerate Superstar Saga's remake's weird removal of Mecha-Chomp AND the status screens not showing Mario and Luigi shoving each other, as I don't have to deal with some of the sickening sprites, soundtrack, and sound effects of the original Superstar Saga.

Also Luigi was moping around, wearing a badge, while Mario was forced against his will to equip a badge he got for free and was inferior to a badge I got from Queen Bean. Thanks for the forced tutorial.

But anyway, all I will tolerate as long as I can see the beautiful Dream Team style.

This hurt to read.

Bowser's roles in any of the post PM64 PM games are rubbish.

Bowletta was a terrible idea.

Count Bleck didn't deserve a happy ending.

I actually like the Dream Team style too and don't consider it a downgrade from the previous styles. In some ways it's just as great if not better. But I strongly disagree with Superstar Saga's being bad, the only character it represented poorly was Bowser. I don't even think that extends to other forms like Bowletta, her face is designed better with the proportions of that Bowser, but seeing Bowser's face all squished in there and derpy is not intimidating at all lol. Rookie is a derpier character so it works well enough there. Otherwise I adore Superstar Saga's sprites.

Superstar saga's original Bowser was so bad they replaced it for the Japanese release

My sister adores the Dream Team art style and I'm mighty salty that Partners in Time did not get it.

Sometimes, being a Baby Luigi fan is just about the literal worst thing to be a fan of ever out of any character fans. >:7 >:7

Dry Bowser is not a clone of Bowser.

Luigi is the better Mario brother.

I think their full names (according to the Hollywood movie) are ridiculous (Mario Mario and Luigi Mario).

Wario didn’t deserve to be an Anti-Hero.

The Mushroom King is the best character ever.

Donkey Kong didn’t deserve to be such a failed series that he blended in with the Mario universe.

Donkey Kong only kidnapped Pauline because he’s alone.

Penguin Mario is a clone of the blue penguin from Club Penguin.

Bee Mario looks ridiculous.

and finally, Waluigi doesn’t deserve to be in Super Smash Bros as a playable character.

WDYM, it's one of the best-selling Nintendo franchises, at least according to Wikipedia which stitched several sources together for this claim. I also love the idea of DK sharing a universe with Mario.

Dry Bowser is not a clone of Bowser.
I agree, I don't know why people keep saying that. Their designs are different enough that Dry Bowser, in some places, is not even compatible with Bowser's anatomy. His skull, at least, isn't. I'm not necessarily stating they are not meant to be the same character, although I do entertain the headcanon that the Dry Bowser we see outside NSMB and NSMB2 is not Bowser himself but his brother, which, if I remember correctly, is actually corroborated to some extent in Mario Party: Island Tour.

He's barely even good as an Assist Trophy. How would he fare as a fighter? Kill everyone with how pathetic he is?

I imagine in concept he would be somewhat like Peach in that his attacks are mostly physical or involve sporting equipment. Maybe throw in a few more bizarre moves since he's such a weird character and also incorporate Bob-ombs somehow. If he's not taken too seriously I think he could have a pretty fun moveset.

Antasma was a dull badguy who was used exactly how he should have been.

I mean hes not as bad as grodus....

....who is as bland of a villain as you could get
I mean, sure? But no one complains that Grodus was apparently "missed potential" due to not being the final boss of the game he was in.

Yeah the DS version has a playable Wario, the other 3D Marios can't top that.
