have you ever played a mario game and thought wow that's chilling. or that's quite scary. i think we've all went through that. and that is quite fun. and that is what we're going to discuss. scary moments in mario games.

something in Mario that has real-life ramifications

Some of the early Luigi's Mansion content was really unsettling, or at least that's what it was when I was a kid.

First time I heard the music in Super Paper Mario where you go down the river in hell freaked me the right out.

Now it's just kind of neat in a weird way, but I wasn't prepared for it back then.

in partners in time. the cobalt star. kylie koopa sees something inside the cobalt star looking at her. that's creepy. AND the fact that the shroobs made princess peach's castle theirs and it's under their control. AND knowing that princess peach with that fungus on her face is really princess shroob. that's creepy too.

Most of my chills come from difficult to manuever life or death moments.
The big purple fish is a repeat offender. I don't believe anything in the series has given me as much anxiety as him.

I guess it's supposed to be humorous, but someone shared me some Super Mario Glitchy 4 video and not only I didn't find it really funny, I just found a lot of it unsettling. But again I usually find the Gmod use of Mario always uneasy like something violent or uncomfortably juvenile is going to happen.

The part in the thousand year door when you first sail to keelhaul key and the pirate ghosts come and the ship sinks. I got scared for real. I'm not kidding. I was 12 years old or so when it happened. SO FUN.

I think Mario Party 4 had a genuinely good threatening build up when you land in a Bowser Space. You can really feel the tension as the screen goes dark, you hear Bowser laughing, and there's music building up and.... it's just Koopa Kid. And then Koopa Kid thinks you're just taunting him and then Bowser crushes you anyway. I don't think any other Mario Party really replicated that.

Mario Party 4 was so scary, one person argued back in 2014 that Mario Party 4 should've been M-rated.

I might be at a minority, but I get scared every time I play the Mario vs Bowser battle in SM64, because of the Mines.
