Things you didn't notice before in Mario games

Fury Bowser

A Godzilla Bowser!?
Yeah, I'm a Goomboss guy. Although Goomba King is more fitting imo.
 

Penguin Mario

🐧Penguins. Lots of them.🐧🐧🐧🐧
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.

Whoa, yeah, he's still furry!

Always remembering Walkazo
She's also never been playable ever.
 

Mcmadness

The idiot who puts things in the wrong board.
Well, she's not all that great of a character so I'm not bothered by that.

The name’s Matz Lunne!
This is not exactly a Mario game, but in the Meet Super Mario Run video, the man speaking, when explaining challenge coins, says:
“Collecting them all to reveal a new set of Challenge Coins to gather”

Today, after who knows how long, I learned that jumping on the Kowalees in DKC Returns' Golden Temple is another way to defeat them, in addition to the usual method of flinging their bombs back at them. It's hard to do it, though, since there's only one place in the entire level where you'll ever be on high enough ground to actually jump on them.

In the Virus Vids for Dr. Mario World, the viruses have colour schemes that had an interesting choice, because they were portrayed with coloured gloves and shoes.



Turns out the Dr. Mario World viruses were based on how the NES version portrayed them, meaning it used a more limited colour palette:


For references, the viruses are normally portrayed like this. Notice the more standard colours, such as the white gloves and the red tongues?


Thank you for reading.

its kinda neat theyre based on the nes sprites but dam i wish theyd just finally get a good 3d model for once, matching this artwork in particular........ the normal 3d virus design gets rid of their limbs for some reason and then weirdly edits certain other parts so the blue virus isnt allowed to have victini ears or red ears in general and it SUX

Feed me.
Two things about Yoshi’s Island
  1. After you hit the ground after doing a Ground Pound, keeping holding down and Yoshi will stay in the pounding frame.
  2. When you eat a star, Yoshi has a licking lips animation that is a blink and you’ll miss it animation.

i cant believe they named some frog after toad
luigi being the only mario brother who can talk started in super mario rpg and was kept for future mario installments.

That’s correct, the Star Wish.

Wario is supposed to be the greedy one but Mario and Luigi have their health restored and given another chance at life just by touching money
 

Penguin Mario

🐧Penguins. Lots of them.🐧🐧🐧🐧
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.

Actually, he does have a sleeved version in the Tokyo Olympics, as with anyone else (like Waluigi). But Luigi sure likes showing off his shoulders. :P

no idea why it took me so long to realize, but even in modern paper mario, paper bowser's skin color is still not bowser's current color in mario games. it's still orange as a pose to the current yellow

basically paper bowser would look something like this if he was more faithful to modern bowser (this is as close to yellow as i got)

and heres the original paper bowser

i also noticed that mario + rabbids kingdom battle did the same thing, but it makes much less sense than paper bowser considering that paper bowser is designed to look like classic bowser.
