Submissions for Issue 100 ideas has ended.

Welcome to yet another issue of Guess Who! with your host, Andymii! Here, we challenge your knowledge of Mario characters by giving clues and hints and then asking you who the character is. There are three levels; can you solve them all?

This month's theme will be RPG. This means that all characters will be from either the Paper Mario series, Mario and Luigi series, or Super Mario RPG.

But before we start, I have an important notice. Next issue will be 'Shroom issue #100, and I am accepting submissions for theme ideas though the end of June. I encourage you to come up with a creative theme for the next Guess Who! article. If they're good, I will pick my favorite an give the winner a shout-out. All other ideas also have the potential to become future themes as well, so go give it a try!

Anyway, simply pick a level, and get ready to start thinking!

Level 1: Easy

  1. He is more than awful- specifically, one letter more.
  2. He is famously quoted, "I HAVE FURY!"
  3. He resides in the BeanBean Kingdom.

Level 2: Normal

  1. She is colored green.
  2. She is the leader of a group of Boos living in Boo's Mansion, with her butler, named Bootler.
  3. Her battle moves are Smack, Outta Sight, and once upgraded, Spook, and Fan Smack.

Level 3: Hard

  1. This character wears sunglasses.
  2. He was champion of the Mushroom Derby until he was beaten.
  3. He is the only one of its species not to wear shoes.

Word Search

by Palkia47 (talk)

Howdy guys! :'D Sorry for being so inconsistent with Word Search... but now it is summer time, and, to me, it is time to celebrate the up and coming Super Mario Maker! Starting today, I will be releasing Word Searches that focus on the four main games utilized in Mario Maker: Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, and New Super Mario Bros.!

Soooo... without further ado, here is this month's word search, based on the enemies of Super Mario Bros.!
