Guess Who!

by Andymii (talk)

"Yay! I lost to Mario again!"

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 Bosses. That's right: this means that all characters here will be among the strongest of the Mario enemies! (Or not... *cough cough* King Bob-omb *cough cough*) Characters can be from any Mario related game, excluding the Super Smash Bros. games.

If you have an idea for a theme, just post it here. If I like it, I will definitely consider using it in a future issue! Anyway, simply pick a level, and get ready to start thinking!


Warm-up

  1. He leads the Koopa Troop.
  2. While usually bad, he occasionally fights with Mario.
  3. He has a green, spiky shell and can breathe fire. That's it. No more clues needed.

Level 1: Easy

  1. He appears Nintendo 64 game, and appears in a Wii game as a throwback to his original appearance.
  2. In the Wii appearance, speaking to him again after you have lost a life will make him "tired of his speech."
  3. His species apparently "[builds] your houses, your castles, [and paves] your roads."

Level 2: Normal

  1. This character can regenerate its arms during the second stage of the battle.
  2. He can summon more rocks out of the ground to hurl at Mario or Luigi.
  3. He can also summon explosive ghosts.

Level 3: Hard

  1. These bosses (note the plural) only appeared in one Gameboy game.
  2. They are based off characters from a popular fairy tale.
  3. They attack by rolling into Mario.
