A Godzilla Bowser!?
Yeah, I'm a Goomboss guy. Although Goomba King is more fitting imo.
Whoa, yeah, he's still furry!Statue Mario in Mario Kart 8 (where Tanooki Mario transforms into Statue Mario during an anti-gravity trick) is probably just a recolored Tanooki Mario; they didn't actually use the Statue Mario design from 3D Land. Differences include hand size (3D Land Statue Mario's hands are smaller), shading (mustache is considerably darker for MK8), eye glint (3D Land Statue Mario lacks it). The Statue in Mario Kart 8 has a visible lower lip too, and a defined chin which isn't present in 3D Land Statue Mario, but it's a normal feature of Mario. The overall mesh geometry for Statue Mario is less organic/more jagged, noticable around the ears and the mustache.
The scarf is also hidden inside Tanooki Mario's model probably so they can easily recolor Mario and also increase the size of the scarf, but decrease the size once the animation is done.
That’s correct, the Star Wish.luigi being the only mario brother who can talk started in super mario rpg and was kept for future mario installments.
i cant be completely sure about this fact, but mario rpg was the earliest i remember luigi talking, but i expect to be proven wrong
Luigi went sleeveless!The Mario characters that have alt outfits wear the same sports shoes and socks for Mario Tennis Aces and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
I also notice that Peach and Daisy wear a new set of shoes for Mario Tennis Aces that was used later in Mario & Sonic
Peach and Daisy's shoes looked different before, and these was standard in the sports games. Simple shoes with a colored tip to match their primary colors.
