I know maybe some one-liner in some MaRPG contradicts what I'm saying but I'm always under belief that Boos are just paranormal wisp-like poltergeists, and they're not actually deceased entities and whatnot; kinda like how Cappy isn't really supposed to represent a dead person.

i.e. Boos are born Boos.

Jumpman is Mario’s Pa, and Pauline (odyssey) is Pauline (donkey kong
Birdo is genderfluid
Baby Mario is the Cryingest of the “babies”
Mario likes onions and garlic more than Wario, but is quiet about it
Daisy thinks amogus jokes are still funni

Honestly I was like, WTF at first, but the more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Jumpman could've passed away first, and Pauline could've just aged fantastically, ala Dolly Parton. And of course Pauline would want to improve the quality of life in NDC after what happened in DK Arcade! Not exactly a headcanon I'd apply to my own, but a good headcanon nonetheless.

g-g-g-g-ghost s-s-sreproduction?!?!?

jokes aside i agree, weve seen boos be able to split and merge, so it make sense they can asexually reproduce lol
Boos get a ghost stork delivered to them obviously

If anything, it'll explain how Donkey Kong aged to Cranky Kong and Mario seemingly stayed the same?

I prefer to just go with the Kodansha manga's explanation that time passes faster on DK Isle than it does in the Mushroom Kingdom.

You can even apply this idea to other places in Mario's world: Maybe it's why Crumbleden appears post-apocalyptic?

I have them as brothers, but that's because I'm the biggest sucker ever for sibling teams.

I believe that Shy Guys are some sort of wood thing underneath their robes and masks.

The revealed face does look like it has a wooden texture, at least to me.

They also have wood stilts for legs.
Also I'm not sure if I'm making stuff up but I vaguely remember Shy Guys having the Wood element in Puzzle & Dragons : Super Mario Bros. Edition.
Though I could be misremembering lol.

Toads have some of the laziest naming conventions. It's pretty established in the Paper Mario games, but I mean it extends to the vast majority of other Toads, and I mean not just Toad, Toadette, Toadsworth, and Toadbert. Blue Toad's name is literally "Blue Toad". Hint Toad's name is literally "Hint Toad". Beetle Mania Toad's name is "Beetle Mania Toad". Same for "Crybaby Toad" being "Crybaby Toad". The news reporter for Mushroom Kingdom is "News Reporter Toad" but he's slightly more creative and he's "Ennar", which is how you say out loud "N.R.", aka "News Reporter". His co-worker is "Onnar", which is how you say "ONR": "Other News Reporter". I mean for crying out loud, Tayce T. is "Tayce Toad" and so on.

If you think that's weird, Toad will just tell you it's a cultural thing. I mean what does "Charles" even mean? It's just a stupid arbitrary combination of letters.

The only uniquely named Toad in the kingdom is named "Sam". He is virtually indistinguishable from other Toads, and he wears a red vest. He works for Peach.

Also the Toads that work for Peach smile so much their smiles stuck. So this is an actual dialogue and their faces are conveyed accurately to their emotions, though how they talk is "normal".

Mario, you work your job fast! Can you clean us with your water thing??? The castle baths are completely booked!
Sam, I already told you, I don't have FLUDD, which is kinda important for me to clean stuff!?
But come on!
HEY why are YOU so special, Sam!? I want to be doused in water first!
Whaddya mean? I've been so dirty for hours! Wah!
SO AM I, SAM!
WE ALL ARE!!
I hate my life.

Only those specific Toads that work for Peach have this always-smiling-even-when-depressed trait, so other Toads can smile, frown, cry, be angry, express disappointment, and so on.

Edit: Geez I said this like the third time now in this thread. It's a really long-standing headcanon.

Jolene is the only Toad with a normal people name.

That goes with my headcanon that Baby Luigi hates geckos (actually just one gecko in particular) and has a collection of chainsaws.

This all started from when my brother and I misheard his 1st-place voice clip in Double Dash.
