Your headcanons

(she/her) actual spore creature
theyre still sisters but dixie is too short for whatever ape species she is and tiny is (ironically) too tall for whatever ape species she is. so theres the ridiculous height difference between them! (also fun fact apparently even in dk64 tiny was always slightly taller than diddy, and dixie too by extension)
i am simply thinking about donky kong a lot lately

More headcanons.
  • While Daisy and Peach are definitely friends who care a lot about each other, they do share a bit of a competitive rivalry with each other and they sometimes get into petty fights over the stupidest shit.
  • Peach lost both of her parents at an young age and grew up very lonely, because of this, she heavily relates to Rosalina.
  • Due to being away for such a long time, Rosalina tends to be quite overwhelmed by modern day society and early on, had a bit of trouble adjusting to certain things. That said, she also has a childlike sense of wonder and curiosity towards certain things and is constantly wowed and interested in things that likely wouldn’t faze someone now, such as cars, TVs, the internet and instant TV dinners.
  • The reason why we never see Wario’s friends in Mario spin-offs is simply because Mario isn’t really aware of them, because Wario never talks about them at any point (when he talks ahout his WarioWare endeavors, he tends to make it out like he did it all himself, never mentioning his friends at any point) and never takes them with him to stuff, simply because he doesn’t want any of them to potentially steal his glory.

Wow, that's really selfish of Wario. I'm going to have to beat him up more in Smash and ban him from being on my team in Mario Kart because he's the reason why I can't play as Penny Crygor and Mona in the spinoffs.

That's actually a really good explanation for why we never see the WarioWare characters anywhere else, I like it. You could also reverse that to explain why Waluigi never appears in WarioWare since he interacts with Mario and co. on a regular basis, which would make it a lot harder for Wario to take all the credit if he was involved and around.

The Mantas that appear in the fifth world of New Super Mario Bros. Wii are closely linked to the Super Mario World's dolphins and Dorrie. They're so similar in behaviour and have the same swim googles, I believe they form some sort of aquatic/semi-aquatic community of creatures that are neither Princess Peach's subjects nor Bowser's minions. They happily live on their own and just happen to help Mario if they find him on their ay.

Here's a headconon o mine.
The shy guys that we see in the mainline Mario games are just the in their first stage of evolution. Once they grow out of said stage, their bodies morph into adult human bodies over a set period of time. The reason you never see those future stages is because the first stage shy guys are more expendable, so, Kamek and/or Bowser would use those to fend off Mario and Co. This might also explain how the Fat Guy exists.

one of many headcanons: it's not just Mario Bros 3 that's performative, every Mario game is a sort of storytelling-in-progress of an adventure with Mario as the protagonist; details are altered or brushed over entirely to facilitate the simple nature of a tale being told. This is partly confirmed thanks to the Mario Odyssey art book, which stated that originally the citizens of New Donk City were going to be faceless, to demonstrate Mario's alienation and inability to relate to "regular" city folks

but that in turn implies that their height, too, could just be a framing device, a physical manifestation for us the players but purely a metaphor for Mario himself. Mario feels like the Donk people, with their towering skyscrapers and important places to be, are looking down at the simple, fun-loving plumber, so that's what we see. Mario might not actually be that much shorter than New Donkers, but he *feels* like he is. Taken to its logical extreme, the majority of Toads bearing the same appearance and being named Toad could be that same framing device in action; they all look the same because they're not critical to the Mario story. They don't have individual names because they don't matter to the yarn being spun. Persona 5 does something similar, with random background characters having fewer visible details (and in fact, appearing faceless) compared to the main cast.

the Mario RPGs tend to tell a more complex narrative with a larger cast so the Toads (and other miscellaneous non-Marios) get to be more fleshed out and "real"

Always remembering Walkazo
Mini-Yoshis are a subspecies of Yoshi. Rather than having the same color skin as the spots on the egg they hatch from, all Mini-Yoshi eggs have cyan, magenta, yellow, and (unseen due to the sprite) black spots, and their skin color is determined by external factors outside the egg before they hatch. This opens up potential for them to have rare shades, hues, and color combinations not seen on normal Yoshis.
From the time the hatch, Mini-Yoshis all have the same proportions as normal adult Yoshis, but they never grow bigger than one brick block tall.

So the original Donkey Kong had Mario as a carpenter, and then Mario Bros. had him and Luigi as plumbers. Perhaps they're actually just handymen.

While the Broodals aren't exactly fond of Mario, especially after the events of Odyssey, they aren't actually evil, they are neutral guys who were simply doing what Bowser ordered them to do, which was to plan the wedding and impede Mario from interfering. They didn't even know of Bowser's plan to take over the Mushroom Kingdom by marrying Peach, nor would they have cared, because they were promised to get paid by him beautifully and hey, who would refuse royalty. Also not their world, not their problem.

Well, more "neutral" in the sense that they didn't particularly have any personal vendetta or biases against anyone (bar Mario because of Odyssey) or alignment towards good or evil, but rather in their head, they're simply doing their job and what the contract says and don't particularly care about the larger consequences that derive from them, especially since it's not their world, they don't operate on human ideas of morality or what not. Like, If Peach contracts them to plan her and Mario's wedding and hede off Bowser, they will do so no problem if the pay is good and what not. That's part of why Bowser contracted them to begin with. They don't operate on any particular alignement or biases towards one side or the other, so they're reliable to him and he knows they won't suddenly backstab him or swing the other way.

In other words, they operate on Blue And Orange Morality

They call themselves Broodals. They know full well what they are doing is wrong.

Welp, can't exactly defend that or what not....
Eh, it's all just headcanons anyway. 🤷‍♂️
