The Mushroom Marauder and Jake "The Crusher" Fungi are two large Mushroom men who are professional wrestlers, and are Toad's cousins. There is a good chance that they are brothers.

The Mushroom Marauder and Jake only appeared in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Tag Team Trouble". Because he fell asleep, Toad feared that Bowser had stolen a one-million Gold Coin donation from him, which actually went to the Mushroom Kingdom Orphanage. In an attempt to earn back the money, Toad went to see his cousins, who agreed to enter the Tag Team Wrestling Tournament for him, so that they could win him the prize money.

When Toad went to sign up his cousins, Bowser and Cheatsy were also there to sign up the Sledge Bros. Although the Sledge Bros. knocked Toad and his cousins around at first, the Mushroom Marauder and Jake rolled into the Sledge Bros., giving Bowser the impression that his team was going to lose.

Not wanting to disappoint Bowser, Cheatsy sneaked into the Mushroom Castle where The Mushroom Marauder and Jake were sleeping, put them under hypnosis, and ordered them to not wake up for two whole days. Toad tried everything to wake them up, but he wasn't successful. However, Mario and Luigi agreed to enter the match for Toad in place of his cousins.

Although the Mushroom Marauder and Jake were never seen again, it can be assumed that they woke up after the match and went back to their regular lives.
