Talk:Shadow Mario

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Should this merge with Bowser Jr.? the article seems to short. Max2

Bowser Jr. and Shadow Mario have appeared as separate characters in some games, so I do'nt think so. - Ultimatetoad 17:15, 26 February 2007 (EST)

What games? Max2

The Mario Tennis for the gamecube, who's name I ca'nt remember. Anyway, it has a different name, and LOOKS different. If Frog Mario deserves an article, I know that Shadow Mario does. Ultimatetoad 17:47, 27 February 2007 (EST)

  1. Mario Power Tennis
  2. no. I've beat that game. 2 times. I Don't see Shadow Mario.
  3. Ca'nt? is that... Catnip?
  4. ok. we have... Do'nt=Donut and Ca'nt=Catnip
  5. Max2

O.K., O.K., I type fast. Maybe I have the wrong name. One minute, I'll check. - Ultimatetoad 17:52, 27 February 2007 (EST)

OH, I see it. In the article. I'ts Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour - Ultimatetoad 17:53, 27 February 2007 (EST) P.S: I spelled It's wrong on purpose.

  1. Why?
  2. it not It's
  3. Max2
  1. It should be "It's" because otherwise the sentence woulbe be "It Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour"
  2. This is a good way to talk
  3. Have you joined the grammar police here yet?
  4. Ultimatetoad
  1. I meant "I Spelled It's wrong on purpose"
  2. Grammar Police?
  3. Max2

The grammar police are a bunch of people on the wiki. who's job is to fix grammatical errors in articles.To serve and Correct. I'm not a member, seeing as how I hate grammar, but talk to Monty Mole. - Ultimatetoad


Does Shadow Mario's "unusually long, red tongue" actually appear in canon? I saw it once in fanart, but I don't remember seeing it in 'Sunshine'.DrFurball 15:01, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Definitely not in Sunshine, though I can't find it in the text currently. You can remove it. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 14:33, 27 January 2008 (EST)
I removed it. All right! My first edit! DrFurball 15:01, 27 January 2008 (EST)

The long tounge does appear he sticks it out at Mario before leaving on the bowser boat to Pinna ParkPikmin theories (talk) 11:23, 8 June 2016 (EDT)

Great Quote[edit]

What's the point of having a quote where he says nothing? That's dumb.

He says text in the 2 games where he appears. Koopalmier 08:11, 16 November 2008 (EST)


Does Bowser Jr. use the bandanna to transform into Shadow Mario, or does he use the Gadd Brush? Green Yoshi

Not really a doppelganger[edit]

I've been reading a book on ghosts, and it says that a doppelganger is a German(?) word meaning a ghostly double of a person. Shadow Mario is not a ghostly double of Mario, he's a Koopa pretending to be Mario. So should I remove that? Lemmy Koopa Fan (talk)

No: "doppelganger" can also mean "evil twin". Time Questions 12:01, 26 November 2009 (EST)

Okay, I won't, even if I don't quite understand how Shadow Mario is Mario's evil twin. But I understand a little bit. Lemmy Koopa Fan (talk)

Twin can be used synonymously with clone or duplicate. --Reversinator 19:34, 9 May 2011 (EDT)


Okay, I'm not saying this is wrong, but could someone tell me where it refers to him as "?" in the instruction manual...? ¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 18:13, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

On the page showing the characters. You have Mario, Peach, Toadsworth, the red Toad and Shadow Mario. Koopalmier 18:21, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

OK, found it! ¡Ganaste una Maxiestrella! PHOENIX (talkedits) 00:52, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Gallery page[edit]

Can we make a gallery page for him? Even though he has very little artwork, he has a bunch of screenshots (and besides, the individual Koopalings have gallery pages). Peanutjon (talk) 12:23, 26 June 2014 (EDT)

If all the screenshots in question are used throughout his regular article, it would be wiser to just leave it as is. MarioComix (talk) 16:22, 26 June 2014 (EDT)
There are only five images, whereas the Koopalings have way more.--BowserJrPaperJam.gifTriple K, Skye 16:24, 26 June 2014 (EDT)
