If you include more dinosaurs then you'd have to include the other dinosaurs too. Like Cluckboom.

I really want someone to create an evolutionary connection between Koopas and Kremlings, and then explain whether the former have any ties to the Krocodile Kore from DKC2 considering it is described as the "source of the Kremlings" in the game's instruction manual.

Anyway, while I don't equally like all the Paper Mario games that I've played (having in fact expressed disdain for SPM), I don't oppose the idea that all games in the series are comprised in one Paper Mario universe; that is to say, I don't consider the newer, "crafted" Paper Mario games to happen in another world from the "storybook" Paper Mario games. As far as I'm concerned, Origami King's Toad Town is just a refurbished version of its namesake from PM64 within the same world, in the same way we've known Peach's Castle to change appearance and surroundings in mainline Mario games. Likewise, you can take the ferry boat from Decalburg and Rogueport is thataway with a couple hours in-between.

ahh remember i made an evolutionary tree of koopas? i considered them dinosaurs so you can lump koopas and kremlings into archosaurs... but at that point youd wanna include countless other dinosaurs and birds that just archosausr alone would be a MASSIVE tree and i am Not up to do it

If Nintendo ever let me write some sort of "Marioverse guidebook" tying all the games together into one well-established continuity and throwing in fun little details, hoo boy... Say goodbye to the rainforests.

A few of mine that I can think of off the top of my head (once I started it was hard to stop):
  • The Koopa Troop is heavily organized by species who work under Bowser's subordinates. For example, Goombas report to Goomboss, Bob-ombs to King Bob-omb, Shy Guys to General Guy, etc. Koopas report directly to Bowser himself.
  • Boos are not part of the Koopa Troop. Bowser and King Boo are merely allies in some sort of mutually beneficial relationship.
  • Also, King Boo and Lady Bow may or may not be related.
  • Bowser's brother is Morton's namesake and the father of the Koopalings.
  • Goomdivers and the scuba Goombas from SML2 are the same thing.
  • The Mario world is part of a Nintendo/video game multiverse, and the Smash world is the hub that they all connect through. This is how characters like Link sometimes appear in Mario games despite having very different worlds (and yes, that means the Mario gang did some universe hopping for Mario Kart 8/Deluxe!).

Wouldn't that give way to systemic raci--err, speciesism?
It's probably too late for that anyway, the big boss characters rarely (if ever) associate with anyone outside their own species, and games like Bowser's Inside Story have already shown that species are divided into their own squadrons to some extent.

Maybe Bowser should consider looking into more equal employment opportunities...

Catch and release!
But what about enemies like Snailcorn and Buzzy Beetle? Do they have their own leaders or do they just have their own little squadron?

Ooh, that's a good question. I suppose there's the possibility that they could have leaders who we just haven't seen in any games yet for whatever reason.

Though personally, I don't consider Snailicorns part of the Koopa Troop, just hostile creatures that Mario happens to run into on his way to save Peach. In my headcanon, it's only the frequently recurring enemies that are part of the Koopa Troop, along with any other enemies that are confirmed to work for Bowser through the RPGs or things like that.

A few more:
  • Metal Mario (the character, not the form) is a Machine Made clone of Mario created by a few of Smithy's followers sometime after his defeat. Unfortunately for them, he cares more about playing sports than trying to defeat Mario.
  • Since Nintendo can't decide, yes, Wario and Waluigi are brothers.
  • On the other hand, Peach and Daisy have no relation. Neither do Toad and Toadette.

we wont see cranky kong being a ghost any time soon (as far as im aware) literally because hes too stubborn to die. he will live as long as video games are around
on the topic of that he is secretly the best gamer in the mario verse. youre a competitive esports player? a top speedrunner? something else i couldnt think of? sorry cranky can beat you in both if he bothered to play with/against you
elaborating on the latter a lil, from a discord:
"my headcanon is that no matter who the best gamer in the marioverse is, esports pro gamers or whatever | cranky kong will be able to beat them if he ever cared to compete with them. whoever hes comparing his skills with in some way hes just inexplicably slightly better than them in particular at video games. every time" (as in his skills arent consistent but theyre always just slightly better than his opponent, or whatever kong hes complaining to that he beat the game on one life in an hour)
and also wrinkly is somehow the opposite. she would somehow lose in a video game to a singular plate of spaghetti. she still plays video games anyway. i think its a bit impressive at all that a ghost is capable of playing of video games even if said ghost has never won in a video game ever
