Did you know that…:

  1. The Prima Guide for New Super Mario Bros. Wii refers to Bowser Jr. as a bothersome Koopaling?
  2. In Super Mario Land the theme for the star is the Can-Can?
  3. Fire Mario was originally known as Firey Mario?
  4. That despite being much bigger than regular Para-Beetles the Heavy Para-Beetles actually fall when Mario jumps on them?
  5. That the Super Mushroom was originally known as the Magic Mushroom?

Chapter 1, Story 5: Defeat the giant snake

Hello Fun Stuff Fans! No, this quiz will not be on the new 3DS game. I'm shining the spotlight on the wonderful, devious character who once again was snubbed by Miyamoto and the developers for the bajillionth time! I'm shining it on the great intrepid treasure-hunter Wario! Super Mario 64 DS and Yoshi's Island DS: I give a lot of credit to these games for including this great character, both released less than two years apart. It showed so much promise. But six years have passed, and even though it was proven they go great together, Mario and Wario have neither adventured together or fought each other since. Quite a pity. I'm getting fed up. So enjoy a quiz not on goody-two-shoes Mario's New Super Mario Bros. 2, but my beloved badass Wario's Wario Land series. If Mario is The Beatles of videogames, Wario is The Rolling Stones. And don't you dare forget it, Nintendo.

  1. In Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, what is the first course to start you underwater?
  2. From late in the same game as the previous question, what image is on the bomb Captain Syrup tosses at Wario?
  3. From Wario Land II, how many hits does it take to A Turn the Giant Snake Red B Defeat him?
  4. True or False: Wario must be the first to make three baskets with the basketball to defeat the Basketball Bunny.
  5. In Wario Land III, what is Rudy the Clown known as to the player before his horrific revealation?
  6. True or False: Wario Land III is an oddity in which you actually want to avoid bubbles while swimming.
  7. In the Wario Land 4 Hotel Horror level, in which room can Wario turn into a Vampire Bat?
  8. What is the first enemy Wario encounters in 40 Below Fridge?
  9. Welcome to Wario World! Which Trapdoor (going by numerical appearance) involves traversing a crooked line of small, floating blocks in the Horror Manor?
  10. In Shivering Mountains, which treasure sits under a tall tree on a snowy ledge?

Mind Bogglers

By GreenDisaster (talk)

Hello everybody, and welcome to Mind Bogglers! In this new installment, you, as the reader, will have to find a certain amount of characters hidden inside an image placed by me, as the writer. As the holidays come closer and closer, I'd like to honor one of the many games that will be coming out, Nintendo Land, which is a game that contains minigames based around other Nintendo franchises. Hidden inside are some non-Mario characters, including Link, Ness, Samus, Kirby, and Pikachu. You have your characters, so start searching.

Word Search

By Gamefreak75 (talk)

Due to an error on my part, the word search was impossible because I accidentally repeated two lines. My apologies to anyone who tried to solve it, but couldn’t, but kudos to those, if there were any of you, who caught my stupid mistake and fixed the problem yourselves (it should have been obvious when Bowser’s Castle and Daisy Cruiser appeared twice in the word search. The “answers” to the fixed August’s word search:


With the Wii U announcement that would have happened by the time this issue goes up, why don’t we look at some of Nintendo's previous consoles?
