In Mario Strikers Charged, when Wario uses Gas Mask, in addition to occasionally yelling "JOOOOSEEEE!", he mutters something else. I originally labeled it as meaningless gibberish, until today. I found out what he says.

"Pull my finger."

i hate video games.
The "New Funky Mode" text on the Switch version of the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze box art changes depending on the region.


You've all probably seen the American version by now.


However, in Europe and Australia, it says "Funky New Mode", and has a completely different font.


Finally, in Japan, the text uses a third font that is in Japanese, and also appears to be angled. (also "Tropical Freeze" looks different in the Japanese logo for the game)

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)

Here it is in a closer palette. Personally it still looks odd to see a non-orange Paper Bowser

Also, I found out the captain's who talk actually say things when they... walk into the cloud. Waluigi says, "*Cough cough* Oh, Wario! Hold it in!" or, "*Cough cough* Wario, you're killing me!"

I was dying when I found this out.

Super Mario Runs Remix 10 is also The Name of the Final Remix in The Rhythm Heaven Series...

Oh and The Super Mario 64 Font from 3D All-Stars is Different From The N64 Version

Always remembering Walkazo
Merry Mountain R has a single item box on top of the giant candy cane after the Super Half Pipe.
But it's just a normal item box, so if you manage to reach it, you won't be rewarded with an auto Frenzy or something.

i definitely feel like origami king mario took some inspiration from the first paper mariosprite, but i could be the only one who thinks that...

A possible reason that Goombas didn't appear too much in the Super Show because it's based on SMB2 where they don't appear at all
