Web Animation / Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom
Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom is a four part flash movie series featuring the characters and settings from Super Mario Bros.. It was created by the late Randy Solem for his website, Video Game Director's Cuts and has also been featured on Newgrounds.
After Mario is killed by a squadron of Bullet Bills, Luigi leads the citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom on a quest for vengeance against Bowser. As the battle goes on, however, things turn out to be not exactly as they seem...
Inspired by Alexander Leon's equally excellent series Mario Brothers, this series is equally epic in scale, but much lighter in tone, with a good deal of Toilet Humor and Black Comedy in the last episode. It can be seen here on VGDC, here on Newgrounds, or here, on YouTube.
About six years ago, a YouTuber named Asylus created a remastered version of Solem's original movie. The plot is exactly the same, but the following changes were made:
- A completely different score (still Nintendo-oriented with a few exceptions).
- Revamped sound effects.
- A postlude (credits and an ending theme) is added after the final scene.
Depending on the version and editing, the movie runs about 30-35 minutes.
Tropes included in this Video Series:
- All-Loving Hero: The very beginning shows Mario as this to the Mushroom Kingdom, stopping to do something as simple as helping a little Toad kid who fell off a latter and calling in help for him. This simple compassion alone speaks about just how much the people of the kingdom adored and loved Mario, not just from his countless quests to rescue the princess and save the kingdom, and all the more reason why that they are devastated by his brutal murder and are out for bloody vengeance against the Koopa Kingdom (even though they were innocent).
- Almost Dead Guy: Luigi takes the bullet for Mario in Part 3 and lives just long enough to tell him about Wart's plans.
- Artifact Title: The title of the series refers to the normal citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom mobilizing into a fighting force, with the goal of avenging Mario's murder. After two parts depicting this, the third reveals it was All Just a Dream, and the remaining two parts focus on Mario, Luigi and Peach. The Mushroom Kingdom does no "rising" until the very end, where a force arrives to clean up Wart's minions and fortress after the villain has already been defeated.
- Big Bad: Wart is the culprit even though Bower is initially set up as the big bad like usual.
- Big Damn Heroes: A revived Luigi reveals himself by saving Mario at the last minute in Part 4.
- Bittersweet Ending: Part 2 ends with the Mushroom Kingdom prevailing against the Koopa Kingdom, but of course it doesn't change the fact that Mario is still dead. Were it not for the Wham Shot we're given at the end of the second installment, and the inclusion of two more chapters, this is likely how the series would have ended. Part 4 in contrast is a much more happy ending, since both Mario AND Luigi are still alive at the end.
- Bring My Brown Pants: Bowser wets himself in terror just before he is Eaten Alive by the baby Yoshis.
- Camera Abuse: Larry gets blasted into the screen during Part 2.
- Cliffhanger: The end of Part 2 and beginning of Part 3.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Mario, Luigi, and Bowser's deaths. Mario, one man, is bombarded by Bullet Bills (fired by Wart) before being explosively finished off by a Banzai Bill. After Luigi wakes up to find out it's all about to happen for real, he takes the entire onslaught, and the resulting explosion gruesomely blows him in half. And Bowser is mauled to pieces by a bunch of newly-hatched baby Yoshis.
- And in Part 4 Wart is blown to pieces when a Fire Flower is used to light his flatuence.
- Dead Hat Shot: Mario's death in Part 1 is symbolized by a slow-motion shot of his falling hat.
- Due to the Dead: Mario's funeral is attended by many Toads and Yoshis, as well as Luigi and the Princess.
- During the battle against Bowser's kingdom, many dead fighters from the Mushroom Kingdom can be seen being carried away by their comrades.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: The beginning of Part 3 reveals Parts 1 and 2 were Luigi dreaming prophetically.
- Foreshadowing: At the beginning of Part 2, Bowser reacts with confusion when he's informed of the incoming attack.
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: Tons. There is a guide to them on VGDC.
- Gasshole: Wart. Word of God implied this is why he hates vegetables so much.
- Gory Discretion Shot: In Part 2, the scene shifts so that we don't see the worst of Bowser being torn apart by baby Yoshis. We still see bloody body parts, though.
- Grave-Marking Scene: At the end of Part 2, Luigi visits Mario's grave and places a photo of the two brothers on it.
- Half the Man He Used to Be: Poor Luigi...
- HeelFace Turn: Bowser is implied to have done one prior to the beginning of the series as he had not attacked the Mushroom Kingdom for quite some time, though he chooses not to take prisoners when the Mushroom Kingdom attacks his castle unprovoked (from his perspective).
- Heroic Sacrifice: Luigi at the beginning of Part 3. As he's dying, he warns Mario that Wart is trying to assassinate him, so Mario decides not to let him do so without a fight.
- Neck Snap: The move Luigi uses against a Boom Boom, as he tries to enter the castle's nightclub.
- Non-Standard Character Design: The movie uses sprites from Super Mario World, the Super Mario All-Stars version of Super Mario Bros. 2, and Yoshi's Island, all of which have slightly different art styles.
- "Psycho" Strings: These play in Part 2 when the baby Yoshis begin to rip Bowser to shreds.
- They play again in Part 3 when the Phantos kill Mouser.
- Public Domain Soundtrack: Subverted. Although most of the background score is identifiable as Nintendo (with a few exceptions), almost none of the music is in the public domain.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: As indicated by the title, the entire series is one of these, with the Mushroom Kingdom battling against Bowser and Wart.
- "Shaggy Dog" Story: The end of Part 2, when it turns out that Wart killed Mario and Bowserwas completely innocent.
- Luigi gets to Bowser using the "World -1" trick from Super Mario Bros. and finishes him off by swinging him into the distance, Super Mario 64-style.
- Mario uses the super jump from Super Mario Bros. 2 in Wart's castle.
- Mario keeps losing his cap during Part 4, much like in Super Mario 64.
- Mario's battle against Clawgrip is styled in the same way as Donkey Kong.
- MC Koopa and Mario's distracting dance are references to Randy Solem's Mack Daddy Mario videos from Video Game Director's Cuts
- Bowser wetting himself out of fear is another reference to another of Solem's videos.
- Spiritual Successor: This was directly inspired by Mario Brothers, and indeed, the first two parts are basically a story about Luigi avenging Mario instead of the other way around. However, because of the long gaps between updates, it also became a Spiritual Antithesis, as Mario Brothers is completely hopeless and has a Kill 'Em All! ending, whereas this series is more idealistic, ending with all the good guys alive, even those who originally died.
- Time Stands Still: In Part 3, Luigi uses a Stopwatch to freeze time and throw Mario out of the path of the Banzai Bill. Unfortunately, the effect wears off before Luigi himself can get out of the way, resulting in his own death.
- Toilet Humor: Rampant in Part 4, especially when Mario finishes off Wart by lighting his flatulence. This was Randy Solem, after all.
- Walking Spoiler: It's essentially impossible to mention Wart without giving away the twist ending to Part 2.
- Wham Shot: At the end of the second installment, Luigi visits Mario's grave, when another Bullet Bill is fired at him. The shooter is then revealed to be Wart, indicating him as the culprit.

Fictional location in the Super Mario universe
The Mushroom Kingdom (キノコ王国, Kinoko Ōkoku) is a fictional principality in Nintendo's Mario series. It is the setting of most main-series Mario games with an inconsistent presentation, and neighbors the Sarasaland Kingdoms. There is no established canon regarding the topography of the Mario universe, and many areas are not certain to be part of the Mushroom Kingdom.
The Mushroom Kingdom is a principality ruled by Princess Peach as head of state. In the instruction manual of Super Mario Bros. (1985), Peach debuts as the princess of the kingdom.Toadsworth is her steward.
A minority of humans like Princess Peach, Mario, and Luigi live in the kingdom. It is mostly populated by Toad citizens. There are colonies of Yoshis, Goombas, and Koopas. Other creatures in Peach's territory include Boos.
The kingdom's most famous currency is various colors of coins. Dispersed across the land are brown brick blocks and golden "question-mark blocks", which may contain coins or power-ups. The main mode of transportation in the Mushroom Kingdom is warp pipes. Some pipes merely travel a short distance (such as over and underground), while some pipes are linked to entirely different worlds. New warp tools and areas have been introduced in games since including the secret "warp whistle" in Super Mario Bros. 3 and cannons in New Super Mario Bros..
Princess Peach's Castle is a large Central European-style red-and-white castle decorated with a stained-glass above the main doors representing the princess. Inhabited by the princess and her Toadretainers, the castle first appeared in-game in Princess Toadstool’s Castle Run (1990) but is really depicted in Super Mario RPG (1996) and is the central hub in Super Mario 64. Its design has remained relatively consistent since, in games such as Mario Kart 64, Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, Super Mario Galaxy, and Super Mario Odyssey (where it is the Mushroom Kingdom's capital city), and the Mario Kart series. Peach's Castle is generally located in the center of the kingdom. It can serve as the final world or as headquarters, as a navigation hub or a feature access point.
Mario's house is the home of Mario and his brother Luigi. It is located close from Peach's castle.
Toad Town is the capital of the Mushroom Kingdom as seen in the Paper Mario and Mario & Luigi series. It is generally located next to Peach's castle. Several species reside in the city, in particular Toads.
Bowser's Castle is the abode of Bowser, arch-villain of the Super Mario video games. The castle has often been destroyed and rebuilt and appears different in each game that it appears in. It is usually filled with lava pits, booby traps, and Bowser's minions. Variations on Bowser's Castle appear in nearly every Mario game, and every Mario Kart game features at least one track titled "Bowser's Castle". Sometimes Bowser takes over Peach's castle and makes it look like his own.
The Mushroom Kingdom has been revamped several times over the course of the Mario games, similar to the kingdom of Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda series. In Super Mario Bros., for example, the Mushroom Kingdom encompasses 32 different levels of varying terrain. Super Mario Bros. 3 expands on this concept with a map screen to add topography to the kingdom. The games do not follow these landscape variants exactly, but still are recurring themes in the Mario series. For example, even though Super Mario World is set in Dinosaur Land, its geography was very similar to the Mushroom Kingdom. The paintings that lead to the different levels in Super Mario 64 follow this idea.
Blogger Natalie Grigson noted that the grassy fields, mountains, waterfalls, and red-and-white mushrooms seen in the area around Princess Peach's Castle best compares to Oslo, Norway.
New Super Mario Bros. U
New Super Mario Bros. U depicts the Mushroom Kingdom as a land composed by 8 worlds:
- Peach's Castle: A large Central European-style red-and-white castle surrounded by water and a white wall, with a bridge serving as an access.
- Acorn Plains: A grassy and mushroomy world with hills and small mountains.
- Layer-Cake Desert: A dry desert world with several stone statues.
- Sparkling Waters: An aquatic world with geysers and shipwrecks.
- Frosted Glacier: A snowy and icy world in a perpetual night full of stars.
- Soda Jungle: A forest world composed by a deadly purple poison liquid.
- Rock-Candy Mines: A world composed by high rock mountains.
- Meringue Clouds: A sky world full of clouds.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle depicts the Mushroom Kingdom as a land composed by 5 worlds.
- Peach's Castle: A large Central European-style red-and-white castle surrounded by water, trees and flowers with a white bridge. It serves as the headquarter, notably to allow the player to travel to the other worlds.
- Ancient Gardens: A grassy world with plains and jungles.
- Sherbet Desert: A world composed by a sand desert and a snowy and frosty zone.
- Spooky Trail: A dark zone with falling buildings and abandoned houses.
- Lava Pit: A world made of rocks and lava where Bowser's Castle is located.
In other games
The Super Smash Bros. series includes four different arenas based on the Mushroom Kingdom. The original Super Smash Bros. includes the unlockable stage "Mushroom Kingdom" which is graphically based on the original Super Mario Bros.Super Smash Bros. Melee includes a re-vamped "Mushroom Kingdom" which omitted piranha plants and warp pipes from the original stage, and its stage "Mushroom Kingdom II" is based on the Subcon setting of Super Mario Bros. 2.Super Smash Bros. Brawl includes the level "Mushroomy Kingdom", which primarily appears as an abandoned, derelict version of "World 1-1" of Super Mario Bros. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the "Mushroom Kingdom U" stage is based on New Super Mario Bros. U.
The Mushroom Kingdom is depicted as a location from the Mario series. The fictional land will be in the Super Nintendo World park.GamesRadar+ wrote a humorous article listing the "Top 7 most disturbing things about the Mushroom Kingdom", listing facts such as "the kingdom's greatest hero is a dumpy plumber", "the political system is a complete mess", and "everything is alive" as examples.Animation Domination High-Def ran a short titled "Real Plumber in Mario World." Game Informer lauded the fact that Super Mario Maker allowed players to "build the Mushroom Kingdom of [their] dreams", writing "since Mario first won the hearts of gamers across the world in the early '80s, fans have been sketching up their own ideas for Mario levels on paper and imagining what sort of worlds they could create for the iconic plumber to explore." Theyab Al-Tamimi created a comedy fanbook, Science of the Mushroom Kingdom, exploring the species of flora in the Mushroom Kingdom; this was later recommended to readers by Kotaku.Screen Rant stated that the Mushroom Kingdom "is a place full of mystery". A fan-created mod of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim titled Super Skyrim Bros turns the game environment into the Mushroom Kingdom.

The capital, as seen in Paper Mario, is Toad Town, however in Super Mario Odyssey, the capital is Peach's Castle.
Though Princess Peach is human, the city is mostly populated by the Toads (called "Kinopios" in Japan).
The Kingdom is often tormented by the Koopa Kingdom located in west. Bowser, King of the Koopas, has kidnapped Princess Peach more than countless times. Initially, it was because she had the power to undo Bowser's dark magic, but in more recent times he has developed romantic feelings for the Princess. This can be best seen in the original N64 game Paper Mario. Games in the Mario series often suggest that the Mushroom Kingdom is a rival of Bowser's domain, the Koopa Kingdom.
The Koopa Kingdom has been glimpsed at least five times as the last worlds in Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, New Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Though several maps and tracks from the Mario Kart and Mario Party series take place here as well. It is also seen in the credits reel of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga when they drop off Bowser. It is unknown if the Koopa Kingdom is a completely separate area, or merely a captured portion of the Mushroom Kingdom.
In Super Mario Odyssey, it is revealed that the kingdom's landmass is in the shape of a mushroom. It's most likely named after the fact there's a lot of Mushrooms .
The Mushroom Kingdom is a monarchy. Princess Peach acts as the head of the government, while her title as "Princess"raises arguments of what her presence in the government is. The Mushroom Chancellor remains in office for many years and gives advice to the kingdom's government and is the second in command after Princess Peach, who is first in command. As Chancellor, he takes over as the acting leader of the government if the ruler is gone for an extended period of time.
Although the Mushroom Kingdom is primarily made up of Toads, many other ethnic groups have joined the Mushroom Kingdom in the past years. 66% of the Mushroom Kingdom is made of Toads, 19% of Koopas and 9% of Bob-ombs. Those are the majority, but around 2% are Shy Guys and/or Bandits, 2% are Yoshis, 1% are Bumpties, a small 1% are Piantas and the remaining 1% are humans and other small ethnic groups (making a total of 100).
Princess Peach's Castle AKA Castle Toadstool
Castle Toadstool is a large castle that appears to be inhabited solely by Toads and the Princess. It is surrounded by a moat, but has a regular bridge instead of a drawbridge connecting it to the other side. A large stained-glass window of Peach sits above the entrance, and four short towers are at the castle's four corners with a much taller tower in the center. The castle has three floors and a basement. Princess Toadstool's Castle, as it appears in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, is considered to be the first appearance of Peach's Castle. It appears quite differently than it does in later games. Aside from Toadstool's place of residence, the Castle serves as the seat of power in the Kingdom where the Chancellor and several Toad advisors hold court. It appears as the hub of Super Mario 64 where Bowser has kidnapped Peach and imprisoned her in her own castle. Mario must dive into worlds created from the castle's wall paintings to retrieve and harness Power Stars to open doors that Bowser had locked. In Mario Kart 64, on the track Royal Raceway there is a path to the castle as depicted in Super Mario 64. It is not vital to drive through and only wastes time. However, after a player finishes with the GP there is an award ceremony out the front of it. In Paper Mario, Bowser again captures the Princess by raising her entire castle via an underground craft that he had built directly underneath it, thus trapping her in her own home again. In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time the castle acts as the main level/hub due to space-time rifts caused by Professor E. Gadd's time machine. It has four floors and two item shops. The player learns some of the main abilities in the front courtyard. A version of the castle (set approximately 25 years in the past) also appears as the final dungeon of the game. It is overrun by Shroobs. In Super Mario Galaxy The castle is again lifted into the air, but this time by means of several large anchors dropped by flying ships controlled by Bowser and Bowser Jr.. It is relocated to the center of the universe, where it plays out as the intro to the final stage in the main story. When the player defeats Bowser, the castle, along with many ships and planets, is sucked into a black hole. Afterwards, it is returned to the Mushroom Kingdom by Rosalina and the Lumas, along with Mario, Bowser and his minions, Bowser Jr., and Peach, albeit looking slightly different from the original castle.
Toad Town is the capital of the Mushroom Kingdom as seen in Paper Mario. It is populated by a people called the Toads, the most famous of which is Toad himself. Other species inhabiting Toad Town are Shaman, Koopa Paratroopas and Doogans.
In Paper Mario, Mario and his group of friends travel through Toad Town quite often, as most areas in Paper Mario can only be reached by passing through Toad Town; for example, Mario might need to take the train from the Toad Town train station. There are three shops in Toad Town, one of which sells badges, as well as a Post Office, a restaurant, and a Toad House where Mario can rest and regain health. It is also the home of Merlon the fortune-teller. Additionally, a place in Toad Town exists where Mario can play games and wager coins. This location can only be found after receiving a special Silver Credit from Koopa Koot and hitting a tree near the train station.
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Mario walks around Toadtown Square and learns the basic skills of the game. If he helps certain citizens, he will get extra Mushrooms for his journey. Mario only visits Toad Town once in this game, at the beginning.
In Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, the Mario Bros. and their baby selves travel to a Toad Town of the past, which was almost completely destroyed by the Shroobs and infested with purple fungus. The only survivors left in the town are two old lady Toads who run the shop there. The only other inhabitants of Toad Town are a variety of bizarre creatures and enemies.
In Super Mario Galaxy a Toad Town-esque village inhabited by Toads is located near Princess Peach's Castle.
Toad Town has also been referred to in other games, for example in the Nintendo GameCube game Animal Crossing. Toad Town is only referred to briefly in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door; Zip Toad, a movie-star sends Mario an e-mail stating that he is going to be starring in a new movie, which is being filmed in Toad Town. A town simply referred to as "Mushroom Kingdom" also appears in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, it is possible that the Mushroom Kingdom may have been an earlier version of Toad Town.
The Mushroom Kingdom has been revamped several times over the course of the Mario games, similar to the kingdom of Hyrule in the Legend of Zelda series. In Super Mario Bros., for example, the Mushroom Kingdom encompasses 32 different levels of varying terrain. Super Mario Bros. 3 expanded on this concept by adding topography to the kingdom through means of a map screen. However, in most games, the Mushroom Kingdom primarily comprises eight different landscapes:
- Plains: Usually the first Map the Player must traverse. The overall geography comprises a Prairie with rolling Hills. Princess Peach's Castle, along with Toad Town, is located here.
- Desert: An Egyptian-themed area complete with Sandy Dunes, Pyramids, and Sphinxes. .
- Islands: The Map spreads out across several Tropical Islands and Peninsulas, and is aquatic-themed. Some of the levels are completely underwater.
- Forest: Usually set in a backdrop of trees, pipes, or a combination of both; many of the Levels contain multiple exits and are maze-like in structure.
- Sky: Set above the Upper Atmosphere, clouds and lifts take the place of most platforms and flight is possible in many cases.
- Mountains: Many of the levels here scroll vertically as opposed to horizontally. Sometimes, the levels are set in a Mountain Range.
- Tundra: Arctic-themed areas where traction is difficult due to the slippery ice covering most surfaces.
- Volcano and Canyon: A bleak territory that is home to Bowser. In some cases, there is abundant lava. This is typically not considered part of the Mushroom Kingdom, but is nonetheless an area that must be cleared. Bowser's Castle is usually located here.
Each area usually has a Castle or Fortress, and sometimes more than one of each.
The games do not follow these landscape variants exactly, but still are recurring themes in the Mario series. For example, even though Super Mario World was set in Dinosaur Land, its geography was very similar to the Mushroom Kingdom's. The paintings that led to the different levels in Super Mario 64 followed this idea as well.
The Mushroom Kingdom reappeared in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, where it was depicted as a single City. Paper Mario reversed this trend by considering the entire game world as different parts of the Kingdom and naming the city "Toad Town." The Mario Kart series has shown us Mushroom City, and the Mario Golf series has implied that there are Humans as well, though they appear to be a minority.
In Super Mario Bros.
The Mushroom Kingdom is shown by random blocks and levels. According to the manual, these are actually people of the Mushroom Kingdom before they were transformed into blocks by Bowser's magic. Therefore, you can infer that Mario is actually traveling between Mushroom Kingdom towns.
In Super Mario Bros. 2 (Japan)
The setting and story is same as the original, but the game is harder.
In Super Mario Bros. 2 (USA)
The setting is not in the Mushroom Kingdom, but in a dream world called Subcon.
In Super Mario Bros. 3
The setting is back in the Mushroom Kingdom. However, this time it is shown as a division called "Mushroom World". To the right is shown what the World 1 Map looks like.
Super Mario Odyssey
Main article: Peach's Castle (Super Mario Odyssey)
The Mushroom Kingdom can be first seen by traveling through a painting in the Luncheon Kingdom, which leads to Yoshi's House on a floating platform away from the main area. The rest of the area cannot be explored until after rescuing Princess Peach from Bowser in the Moon Kingdom, after which the Odyssey can fly to the kingdom. Power Moons have a much different appearance in this kingdom, resembling Power Stars. However, when they are loaded into the Odyssey, they appear as Power Moons.
The main mode of transportation in the Mushroom Kingdom has been said to be through Warp Pipes. The range of these warp zones vary in length: some pipes merely travel a short distance (such as over and underground), while some pipes are linked to entirely different worlds. In Super Mario Bros. 3 Mario and Luigi were able to transport to different worlds using "warp whistles." Warp whistles have not appeared in any Mario game since, but a very similar warp whistle did appear in the first game of the Legend of Zelda series, it had the same general look, and even the tune played when the warp whistle is used is the same. New Super Mario Bros. introduced a new variation called warp cannons.
The Mario Kart series opened up the concept of automobiles and motorbikes (not just karts) and highways in the Mushroom Kingdom, so it is an unclear issue. Flight is possible, as many inhabitants of the kingdom are capable of flying. Some have the natural ability (Lakitu, Hoot , etc.) while Mario and Luigi would need flight-enabling power-ups or outside assistance such as a flying carpet. Aircraft of various sorts have also been seen in more recent games; the Koopas have a tendency to use flying ships, Isle Delfino was reached by the Toad Express (which landed at an offshore airport), and the blimp in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, which was used to travel to the Glitz Pit. Aquatic transportation is usually covered by swimming, but gondolas, submarines, and even cruise ships have been seen as well.
Technology has also been seen in various forms throughout the Mario games. In earlier games of the series, not much technology was seen, and this led people to believe that the Mushroom Kingdom still used antiquated niceties as evidenced by the many castles and old-fashioned houses that the mushroom people live in. However, starting with Super Mario Sunshine, modern technology has been seen in the series. as Peach and Mario fly to Isle Delfino on the Toad Express and watch a tourism video on a television. Modern electronics and infrastructure have been seen, as in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Mario has a handheld device analogous to a PDA that he can read e-mails on. In Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time, a time machine is also featured. Not to be overlooked are devices such as F.L.U.D.D. There is also the Game Boy Horror in Luigi's Mansion as well as lots of electricity throughout the mansion when you clear rooms in the mansion. In Mario Kart: Double Dash!! more modern technology such as automobiles and neon lights can be seen in some of the tracks (such as Mushroom City). Super Mario Galaxy has confused the matter even more, as the technology utilized by different characters in the series have surpassed even modern technology. For example, Bowser has access to a Koopa Clown Car and flying battleships, along with metal planets that have somehow utilized their own gravity fields. The overworld, appears to be designed far beyond present human technology, and through the overworld, the Toads were able to design flying aircraft in order to find stars and counter Bowser armada. There is though great technology invented by the one and only E.Gadd, check E.Gadd's inventions , he definitely changed the Mushroom Kingdom's technology to another level. Providing Luigi with a weapon that can kill what's already dead. The Poltergust 3000, and up.
Appearances in other games
The Super Smash Bros. series has included three different stages in the two released games of the series. The original game included the unlockable stage Mushroom Kingdom which was graphically based on the original Super Mario Bros.
Super Smash Bros. Melee included a re-vamped Mushroom Kingdom which omitted Piranha Plants and warp pipes from the original stage. A Subcon, the setting of Super Mario Bros. 2, stage was also featured which included Birdo among other two-dimensional enemies. Also, the Mushroom Kingdom Stage of the game's Adventure Mode featured many aspects of the series, including a golf course in the background of the stage.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl included another version of the Mushroom Kingdom. Being referred to as "The Mushroomy Kingdom", over the years since the original Super Mario Bros., the kingdom has become nothing more than a dirty, crumbled version of its former glory. The stage scrolls from the beginning of the stage to the end. Every once in a while, World 1-2 of Super Mario Bros. will load instead of World 1-1. Both the Worlds 1-1 and 1-2 l have a 50% chance of loading.

Obey him. He lifted my shirt, pulled off my bra and took my skirt, took off her panties and put it in his pocket. He asked me to jump so that my boobs were shaking, I jumped, he liked it, put me on my knees and said suck, the faster I finish, the faster. You will straighten your clothes.
