Seriously, when you really think about it he is. I just downloaded New Super Mario Bros 2 and I noticed, he just barges in everywhere like he owns the place, steps and kills on everyone and EVERYTHING in sight. The funny part is, most of the koopas and goombas aren't even doing anything to bother him. The Koopas are just dancing, taking a walk and from what it seems, trying to enjoy life while he comes along out of nowhere and just murders them. The goombas are socializing and trying to build towers of themselves as it seems like this is something they do in their natural habitat and he just crushes them to death.

The other thing is, he's incredibly greedy. From what I've read, the object of the game is to collect a million coins or something but it's like he just can't get enough. He needs every damn coin in the mushroom kingdom. Every coin is for the taking and the game tries to encourage you not to leave any behind. So not only is he going to murder every koopa on the face of the earth but he's going to steal their coins so any that are left behind after his murderous onslaught is over, he wants to make sure any survivors will be dirt poor and potentially starve to death because they can't feed their children… or themselves. He essentially wants to cause an extinction of these creatures, a Koopa hollocust.

That's not all, not only does he kill defenseless, innocent wildlife that have been thriving in the Mushroom Kingdom, he also has no qualms about beating children. The Koopalings are kids, remember. Bowser's little kids. Sure they're bratty and trouble makers, but which kids aren't? Keep in mind, he's a grown man. He's even gone as far as attacking a baby (Bowser Jr.). That should tell you what kind of a person Mario is, and Luigi isn't any better. Speaking of Luigi, he's almost always totally neglected and Mario loves to steal the spotlight from him any chance he gets.

You might make the argument that Bowser and the Koopalings kidnap Peach, but when has Mario ever stopped to question why they do this? I mean, he's been rescuing her for years… didn't he ever stop and think why they want her so badly. Could it be that they just like her and want to be her friend? or that they think she's pretty and want a mother because they don't have one? Instead of trying to talk it out like a reasonable adult, Mario just goes in full force and kills anything in sight. Great example for kids isn't he?

So to sum it up Mario:

  • kills endangered wildlife without a thought
  • has no guilty conscience about countless murders he's committed
  • beats up little children
  • treats his brother like sh_t
  • is a horrible example for little kids

Yep, Mario's an absolute douche bag. I would love to have a game where you can play as Bowser or the Koopalings and take Mario out. Why hasn't this been made yet?

I have long held the position that Mario is a violent, sadistic mass-murderer.

Wow. I'd never thought about it that way. What we need is a real hero. And I think I know just the one...

I never heard of game theory until you mentioned it. Watching the videos now and laughing so hard, I teared up.

The point about him stepping on his brother's foot when Luigi wins a trophy in Mario Tennis helps prove the point a lot. It's even one of Dr. Mario's taunts!

Game theory also mentions its because he has a disorder, can't remember what he actually called it. I imagine you'll get to that one soon enough if you've seen the communist one.

@Tasuki Same, it's actually why I clicked on the thread lol @Rexcalibr Glad you like them! I've been watching them for a few years now. The other shows hosted on the channel are worth a look too.

Yep I watch Game Theory as often as I can. It's one of my favorite channels on Youtube.

Well, when I think of the Koopalings, I think of Hob on Robocop 2, so it's all good to jump on them.

Wha? Sorry, but I have to disagree a bit. What do the Koopalings do if Mario is motionless? He is killed - yup, HE LOSES A LIFE. The enemies ain't innocent, too. They work for Bowser; some of them charge at Mario the moment they see him. Sure, the Goombas and Koopas hate Bowser, but most of them are incapable of intelligent communication, so they just move along. However, the Goomba in Smash Bros Brawl are hostile, and the Koopas in 3D World are also hostile.
The problem with the whole kidnapping is Peach herself. Peach refuses to adopt strict security measures. Does she enjoy being kidnapped? Or does she have some sort of secret to all this? Sunshine seems to suggest that. But anyway, Peach is always saying 'HELP!' or 'Noooo!' when she is kidnapped for the one billionth time, and what's a poor gentlemanly plumber to do? Also, the quest be easier if the TOADS FREAKING DIRECTED MARIO TO THE RIGHT CASTLE.
About the one million coins... yeah, Mario is a bit greedy, but only because he and his brother are among the only smart creatures in the Mushroom Kingdom - I mean, what's a Goomba to do with a coin stash? The Toads are in a booming economy; no one seems to be out of a job and everyone is happy. Besides, the coins magically come back to their original places.
I realize this is for fun, though. Not that I'm really defending Mario, lol...

LOL.. Mario does have to clean up the city...
And what is stopping Link from popping out? And Zelda from using magic to send Mario flying?

@VolcanoFlamesNL Because of Spirit Tracks, we learn most Zelda's after the events of Ocarina of Time only barely use their magic, the exception being Twilight Princess. The other ones, the Zelda's only use a tiny bit or summon the light arrows for Link. This might be the cause for the crying Zelda here. Also note, Link does not have his magic bracelet in the photo, showing he is trapped.
