I really want to apologize guys, I really do. I haven't had much time to review the applications for Random Image of the Month due to a range of things (mostly preparing for things to come in the December issue). Please bear with me as I'll try to have everything straightened out about the section by next month's issue.

Screenshot of the Month (Fawfulfury65)

Wonky Waterway

Hello, and welcome to this month's edition of Screenshot of the Month. This month, I chose a big, high quality image from the upcoming game, Donkey Kong Country Returns, which will be released in North America near the end of this month. The image is very well detailed, and we can even see one of the new Tiki enemies from the game. And lets not forget the Donkey Kong sprite holding the Wii Remote in the background. Well, there you have it, this month's screenshot. Tune in next month for the next Screenshot of the Month!

Sketch Related to Mario (BLOF)


Hello there. BabyLuigiOnFire with this month of the turkey and cornucopias! Granted, there are no cornucopias in this image, but there's one sad turkey! Poor turkey, about to meet his fate. And look at how cute Wario looks, with that devious grin and that obviously exaggerated fat body! What would you do if you were in that turkey's position? *shudders*

Do me a favor, enjoy your Thanksgiving, and don't end up on Wario's next plate for dinner.

Sprite of the Month (FunkyK38)

For this month's sprite, it's this little guy: Sprite of a Starkiss in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga..
Hard to think anything that innocent looking would be an enemy, but it is one, from Super Star Saga. This is our sprite of the month because it's bright and happy, and we all could use a little brightness.

Travel Guide

by Ralphfan (talk)

I'm tired of advertising upscale resorts filled with sunshine, so I'm taking a different path this month: go to Twilight Town! Those of you with sensitive skin or a fear of skin cancer will have no problem here! It's pretty dark. Unfortunately, this area lacks many people, and most of the people that do have no personality at all. It's a very glum place, good for emo introverts.

*ding dong*



We also have fresh bacon served daily at our five-star buffet! Our bacon is so popular that our recipe is top-secret! Actually, the secret ingredient

Yes, capitalism has caused Twilighters to use a terrible curse for financial gain.

Fake TV

by MrConcreteDonkey (talk)

The show's logo.

How do you think the Toads of the Mushroom Kingdom get their news? Do you really care? Well, you’re going to find out, whether you like it or not. Introducing Mushroom Kingdom World News-the news station of the Mushroom Kingdom. This news program is presented by Toadette and Toadbert. This news station broadcasts every weekday from 5AM to 10AM on the channel Shroom Station. It covers news from around the Mushroom world, such as recent happenings, travel news, celebrity news, weather and the like. Apparently 10,000 Toads watch it every week.
It also hosts competitions regularly, usually asking the viewer an obvious question where the answer is usually B. Toadbert sometimes falls asleep on air, so usually he has to be hit with a large mallet in order for the show to continue. Sometimes they just hit him because it’s fun. The show also usually has special guests who are apparently famous, such as Mario and the first Goomba to appear in Super Mario Bros.
Finishing up, this show is good to watch early in the morning, because the shows on the other channels are worse.

Fake Games

by Edofenrir (talk)

Greetings, readers of the Shroom. Before I begin with this month's game review I'd like to apologize for the lack of a review last month. I was held hostage by a certain company up until a few days ago. But anyways. After Nintendo was confident about Mario Sports Mix' success due to my last review...


... I'm sorry, I just had a minor relapse. Anyway. After Nintendo was confident about Mario Sports Mix' success due to my last review, Nintendo and Square decided to work together for another game. This alliance spawned a game called Final Fantasy XV - Drains of Fate. I found a concept paper for this game in the warehouse they imprisoned me in. So, being bored to death I started reading it. Little did I know that the title "Drains of Fate" was to be taken literally...

Main Characters
Mario Corleonis
Age 17
Magical Zodiac Snow Bunny
A young and energetic lad who lives in a mundane countryside village called Ceresutiaru Staa. He likes fighting and complaining about how his parents never hugged him enough and his sister hugged him too often. Mario's main weapon of choice is the Gunger, a cross between a gun and a plunger. Pulling the trigger on the Gunger's hilt causes the suction cap to vibrate, and somehow that makes battle easier.
Bowser Corserpentis
Age 19
Magical Zodiac Hairy Tarantula
Another young and energetic lad who lives in Ceresutiaru Staa. For some reason, Bowser is a tanned muscular estrogen bait in this game. His hobbies include dating and switching sides every other day. In battle he is very durable and strong. He fights by using his eyebrows as a weapon. Bowser and Mario have been friends since childhood, and since then they compete regularly in fighting and who can wear the most revealing clothes.
Pīchi Majikousaa
Age 16
Magical Zodiac Fluffy Unicorn
A mysterious girl from the future who excels in being mysterious. Not much is known about her past because she is so mysterious. Also, her past theoretically lies in the future, so she shouldn't even exist yet. Damn time travel! Anyway. She is very ditzy, not too bright, and has an annoying tendency to marry evil overlords. In battle she acts as the team healer. She can also fight by using a bazooka that shoots kittens. Why she does this is a mystery. Because she is very mysterious.
Daisy Cherriford
Age 11
Magical Zodiac Cabbage
A character who is shrouded in mystery, but not in a too mysterious way because she isn't the token mysterious character, unlike Pīchi. She is feared among both her enemies and her allies because she never shuts up. Ever. She carries a sword, but that's only decoration. Daisy fights by talking her enemies to death. She can get hit by a silence spell, which makes her lose all of her HP instantly. She is also evil, or has an evil soul or whatever, but that part is never elaborated in the game's story.
Luigi Corleonis
Age 326
Magical Zodiac Hideous Tentacle-Faced Monstrosity
A sorcerer, widely known as "The Sage". Regular magic wasn't colorful enough for him, so he specializes in what he calls turquoise magic. He lives in a tower that is also a spaceship and loves baking pudding pies that defy the logic of the space time continuum. He is also Mario's younger brother, but don't ask me how that works. I'll scream if you do.
Randomancess Smith
Age 18
Magical Zodiac Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon
An evil wizard lady from the future who is trying to bring calamity upon the world by worshiping and/or fighting a destructive cosmic entity. Her stupid hair is the source of her power and gives her a unique ability called Randomancy. While she is clearly a villain, she can also be recruited as a playable character if the player fights her by using attacks in a specific order. The Randomancess is responsible for all the suffering that happens in the future. She also likes eating sweet apple pies.
Isn't he cute? Aww, look at how cute he is. What? No, that's all the characterization he gets.


The story of this game is set in a universe that lies parallel to Mario's universe. Either that or it is set in the distant future. I can't really pin it down accurately since it is pretty vague. After having played this game for almost eighty hours I'd say it could even be both.
Anyway. The world is in desperation because an evil wizard lady, the Randomancess, laid waste to the planet and conquered everything. She held that cruel tyranny up for several decades, until in one fateful moment she foolishly traps herself in her own palace. And because the Randomancess' hair is shaped like as if she taped a bunch of giant pretzels on her head, she doesn't fit through any doors, which means the world is free once again. A mysterious young girl named Pīchi grows aware of this and decides to use her knowledge of the arcane to mysteriously construct and/or buy a time machine and travel to the future to make sure the present never happens. Yeah, she doesn't have a firm grasp of logic, but fortunately the time machine was set to reverse when she started it, so Pīchi ends up in the past anyway.

In the past she meets a young guy named Mario and his hot-blooded childhood friend and rival Bowser. After a two-hours long unskippable cut scene of both of them sparring, the two guys and the mysterious girl agree to save the world from the evil Randomancess, but not before they go out and eat in a Chinese restaurant. During that trip a fortune cookie tells Bowser that he will become the main antagonist of the first arc, which he promptly does. Mario and Pīchi then aimlessly travel through the land beating up random rogues and animals for no apparent reason. Along the way they meet a lady with a sword called Daisy. Yes, her introduction line was "Hi, I'm the lady with a sword called Daisy", so I can't say whether the sword or the lady is called Daisy. Let's just assume they are both called Daisy. What the group doesn't know is that the evil Randomancess sent a part of her soul into the past and Daisy is actually this soul fragment in human form. Or maybe the soul possessed her when she was a child. Or maybe the soul fragment had a daughter and she is... Oh god whatever, just note that she is evil somehow. Anyway, Daisy presses the group to visit a wise old sage in a tower, and since the group obviously doesn't have anything better to do, they go to said tower. Inside it they meet Bowser and both sides prepare to fight, but suddenly an old man appears and offers them cake. The cake seems to be spiked however, since everyone soon falls into a deep and long sleep after eating it.

The group suddenly awakes a hundred years before falling asleep. The old man from earlier (or later, I lost track some time ago) reveals that he is the great sage Luigi, and everything the heroes ever knew and loved is a lie. He explains that the reality they came from is a mere fabrication planted into their heads by years of brainwashing disguised as weather broadcasting. He also explains that they must all go to the future and prevent the execution of the Randomancess because she is actually good and everything is a huge scheme thought out by the real villains. Oh, and she is also Mario's mother or something. Anyway, Bowser apologizes for betraying Mario and asks if they can be super best buddies again, to which Mario instantly agrees. Whatever. All together then walk over to a time machine parked in the garden of Luigi's tower, but before they can get in, Pīchi trips over a clump of unfortunately positioned oxygen which causes her to lose the keys. However, she loses the keys so hard that they fly through the air and end up on the other side of the planet. Oh yeah, and shortly after that Pīchi gets abducted by space pirates. Naturally, Luigi's tower is actually a disguised rocket, so the group quickly travels back and uses it to give pursuit to the kidnappers. That is until all of them are swallowed by a giant intergalactic sand worm...

If you managed to read all of that up to here, congratulations, you lasted longer than the guy who was supposed to guard my prison. The poor soul's head exploded when I got to the part with the lost keys. I can't say I planned this to happen, and I can imagine more pleasant ways of kicking the bucket than "death through confusing story-telling", but I can't deny that it opened a great opportunity to escape. So quickly, before any more guards who might have heard the explosion approached, I made my getaway through a plot hole. And that is why I am able to tell this story today. In case you are wondering, the story doesn't change that much after that, it stays as confusing as it has been. Oh yeah, the Randomancess is really evil after all, but also acts as a seal to a reality-devouring eldritch abomination who is actually Pīchi's father. Maybe.


To conclude my review, Final Fantasy XIV - Drains of Fate is really great. The storyline has just the right amount of confusion and nonsense to create that distinct acidic effect when telling someone about it. I have tested a lot of products, but this one stood out among all of them. Never has an escape from an enemy base been more smooth and comfortable. Have I forgotten something? Oh, yes. As a game, it sucks.

And with this issue, I will take a break from my Shroom duties to take care of some other stuff. It was nice writing this section. I'd like to thank everyone who took their time to read it every month, and also for supporting my section during the MarioWiki Awards.

Thank you for your patronage. =3

Fake Police Blotter

by Scorpion999 (talk)

  • Who: Bob-omb agents from Fahr Outpost
  • Where: Koopa Village
  • When: 6:31 PM Mushroom Standart Time
  • What: An act of terrorism(blowing up a giant Koopa statue)
  • Why: Bob-ombs claimed to be treated unfairly by Mushroom Kingdom agents

Today tragedy has struck Koopa Village. The great statue of Commander Koopa, a Koopa Troopa who fought for Koopa independence, has been blown up by radicalized Bob-ombs. Three famous Bob-ombs have things to say about this.

King/Big Bob-omb: Excellent... er, I mean it's excellent you're hunting so hard for the terrorists. I think they did a *cough*great job*cough*, I mean a terrible act. Brains must be frozen from all that cold. I hope you, er, I mean they are caught and are punished cruelly and unusually.

Admiral Bobbery: Oh, this is terrible! I didn't know me friends would do such a thing! Most bombs a- there arrr very mild-mannered. Certainly these madmen were not sent by the government! Catch 'em, Toads!

Bombette: Oh, my! Why would a Bob-omb do such a thing? I only blow up when a very hard rock is in my way and I need to blow it up. But other than that I leave my fuse alone! I hope you catch those jerks, sweetie!

  • sniff* Sorry, I'm a Koopa myself. We have employed our finest agents to discover the terrorist organization responsible for this.

Good morning everyone!

Why am I wearing this Hawaiian shirt, sunglasses, and holding a briefcase you ask? Well you see, this month's adverisement is:

*everyone cheers*

Yes, I know, we here, at the Shroom apartment complex, are selling you mindless readers tickets to the glorious Pinna Park. Let me go over some attractions for you.

Outside the park, you can see the various wildlife, including giant Snooze-A-Koopas and weird flying bug things that like to impersonate Italian men. If you're unlucky enough, there might be a deranged mole blasting you with missiles.

Inside the park there are numerous attractions. The first one is this fun clam ride. You sit inside the clam and hope not to get eaten.

Next we have a carousel...with a missing seat... I heard rumors that if an orange Yoshi were to stand at that exact spot, it will become part of the ride.

We have this pirate ship that goes in complete circles and there is this fantastic ferris wheel that is a pain in the ass to get to. Cheesy If you manage to get on the ferris sure to tighten your seatbelts...if there are any...and make sure to bring plenty of paper bags for..."items" you may lose during the ride.

And finally you can ride the park's best attraction: a rollercoaster where you have to fight a giant mechanical turtle that shoots flames and missiles. No wonder why those who survived dubbed the coaster "the ride of their life".

So come on today, pack your bags, and make sure you have approximately 717 coins to pay for each ticket. Cheesy

Fake Sports

by Ralphfan (talk)

The Mushroom Kingdom Shuffleboard Championships were held on the MSS Sea Star last weekend. A thrilling fight to the finish was contested between Yellow Magikoopa and Green Noki with the Magikoopa coming out on top after Green Noki missed a shot at the 10-point space that would've given her the win. The Noki then murmured something that only the other Nokis could understand, as they are wont to do. The ship was then left without electricity and hot showers for three days following a fire in the boiler room, leaving the contestants to eat each other pop-tarts and spam that was airlifted in. The Sea Star finally landed at Goomba's Booty Boardwalk, where the patrons departed and learned that a Pirate Goomba is a Pirate Goomba.

Fake Weather

by New Super Mario (talk)

I looked out my house. It had snowed! I was so happy so I decided to tell you guys. It really hasn't snowed, but that's why it is called Fake News, duh! I also saw the turkeys migrating (if they do that) to Florida. I shot one with a 22' Rifle for Thanksgiving. I actually don't have a 22' I was making that up too. Now back to the good stuff.
In today's Real Fake Weather it is very cold in the Marioverse. Lumas had to start wearing pants and Birdos kept choking on snowballs. Bomb-ombs freeze before they explode, and worst of all I can not do my interview with the Scuttlebug now like I promised you guys!
Well I bet many of you are also excited for the end of the year events in The 'Shroom, but it looks like all that has taken a turn for the worst in my lovely and creative mind. The gameshow that they planned to do caused an earthquake which made the Toads go crazy. The flag contest winner made there flag so big it caused an eclipse, and that new mafia that Tucky made everyone die because he didn't give any info on it.
Drumroll please......... Da da da da da da dum. DA DA DA DA DA DA. "Ok you can stop that now!" Advertisement Time! Do you have an idea for me? Well you can just PM me on the forum and give me ideas for my sections. Also I like reviews. Have I been doing these Fake Weathers pretty good? I don't care if you give me a bad rating. I take criticism very well unlike Cat from Victorious. But it you do give me some, give me and idea on what you think might make it better. This is New Super Mario saying Goodnight!

Fake Characters

by DyegoHalliwell IceMario12 (talk)

Hi, This is Dyego Simpson Halliwell Russo, etc etc. This is the november's Fake Characters section, by me and ConcreteDonkey. I am a little bit hurry, so by the next days I will add the characters description. I hope you like it, and only for this month, my PM special of fake characters.



Bombetto is a marine Bob-omb, a very, very strange and unique species of Bob-ombs. He is the unknown father of Bombette, but he had to fight in a serious imaginary war. He has three powers: Vulnerability, Psycho-bomb throwing and Crazykinesis. His home is a, as he says, crazy house, and he is drugged everyday with Focusin, a very known Shroom-drug (Not to be related with the Sampsons). He explodes everytime he hears the following letters: A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, Ñ, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y and Z. So if my iPhone is right, he just died. R.I.P Bombetto (October 748, 1421 - November 461158, 20100)

Psycho Music-Al-Note

Psycho Music-Al-Note.

A psycho Pixl, that can be seen, only by psychokinetics and people that has premonitions. Psycho Music-al-note is the best and worst Pixl ever. He has the ability to play any instrument, but that gives the enemy an easier way to kill you. He also throws musical notes, but that makes the defense of your enemy higher, so if you throw too many notes, you will never destroy your enemy. So the only thing you can do, is throw this Pixl to the outer space so it will never-- Oh, dammit, there is a way to win with this Pixl? Alright, we'll never say it-- Coming back to the description, throw the Pixl to the outer space and he will die, I repeat it, YOU CAN'T WIN WITH THIS PIXL!

Princess Octopus

Princess Octopus.

Princess Octopus is an octopus with a crown. She is the heir to the throne of the Octopi Kingdom. She looks like a regular octopus, but she has a crown which resembles that of Princess Peach. She currently resides in a galaxy called Twisty Tentacle Galaxy with her husband Paul the Octopus Prince Octopus (duh). Some people call her ugly, but there are no mirrors underwater so she thinks she isn’t.
Princess Octopus will be appearing in Super Mario Galaxy 7, where she will be under attack from the evil eel Frank. Frank was once in love with her, but he is creepy, so she declined his request for marriage. Mario needs to throw 18 irregular-shaped watermelons at him to kill murder behead massacre decapitate Falcon Punch defeat him. When Frank the evil eel is defeated, the princess will reward Mario or his butler brother with a Star. She doesn’t appear again until the end of the game, where she is served as sushi.

Ask Tucayo

by Tucayo (talk)

Hello dear readers! I am your handsome writer, Tucayo, with a new issue of Ask Tucayo! This month I got 4 questions again, which I think is good, but I would want MORE! So if you have ANYTHING that you would like to ask me, just ask it via forum PM, or send me a tweet @TheShroom.
So now let’s go to our questions!

Now that baseball season's over, which sports will you watch during the winter? Which ones are shown the most on TV in Mexico?

Hello Ralph! Well, there are 2 questions, so, to answer the first one, I will definitely watch the NFL, especially now that my Raiders actually have playoff chances :3 And to answer the second question, the most shown sport here is soccer, especially Mexican league, Premier league, Liga A and LFP. NFL also gets a decent amount of coverage.

Tucayo, so I opened this package I got from Nintendo and there was a time bomb inside. I only have 3 minutes to deactivate it. Which wire do I cut? Please hurry.

Hi Gamefreak! Well, it took me over 3 weeks to reply, so you are probably dead by now, but I’ll answer this question anyway, because I am a good question answerer. Now to the question. You didn’t tell me which wires you have, so I’ll guess it is red, green, blue and yellow, as in most movies. Next, in the movies they always cut the red or the blue, and either die or survive (how obvious, but it is the truth). So, I recommend cutting the green one. Why green and not yellow? Well, because I like green better. Or you could send an email to Nintendo to know which one to cut. Never mind that, it won’t work. Cut the green one.

Can I get your Wii when you die?

Do you have a strong interest for Poochy?
-Spyro the Legendary Dragon

Of course! Poochy is the best that could have ever happened to the Marioverse, and whoever disagrees will burn in Bowser’s Castle. >Smiley

After Koopas, which is your favorite species?

Another anonymous one :O I guess you mean Marioverse species, but in case you don’t, I love dogs and lions. Now, Mario species, it has to be the Yoshis, I love them they are so cute ^_^

And that was all! Remember to PM me your questions!! BYE!

Review Corner

by Ralphfan (talk)

Hi, it’s Ralphfan again with another edition of Review Corner. This month, I will be reviewing one of my favorite games of all time, Paper Mario: The Thousand‐Year Door. This game, released in 2004, is the sequel to Paper Mario and is the prequel to 2007’s Super Paper Mario.

North American box art for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
The game's US box cover.



The action commands in this game are generally easy. Personally, I prefer to use Hammer attacks because the timing can be different on jumps depending on the size of an enemy. The enemy’s shape can also throw off your timing.


Unlike in the first game, Mario’s partners also have HP. Mario and his party can use FP to execute moves obtained by leveling up or by equipping Badges. SP can only be used by Mario. He gains a new special move requiring SP after each chapter. To level up, Mario gains Star Points after each fight. It always takes 100 Star Points to level up, but as Mario levels up, weaker enemies yield fewer points. Gone in this game is Mario’s Spin Dash.

Also added to this game is the ability to turn into paper. At various points in the game, Mario obtains the ability to fly as a paper plane, walk through cracks by turning sideways, rolling up into a tube or crossing water as a paper boat.


The graphics in this game were OK. The 3D looked generally realistic. What separates the graphics in this game from those in the original are some of the scenes that occur after Mario presses a switch. If a bridge or a flight of stairs appears, they are folded out of paper.


This game begins when Mario receives yet another letter from Princess Peach, this one telling him to go to a town called Rogueport. Along with the letter is a map that is rumored to lead to a treasure. Upon his arrival in Rogueport, Mario saves a girl named Goombella from Lord Crump. Goombella joins Mario’s party and Mario is told by her professor, Professor Frankly, to head to Petal Meadows in search of the first Crystal Star. Mario is also told by Toadsworth that Princess Peach has gone missing. He sets off in search of the star. In the town located near the meadows, Petalburg, Koops, a very shy Koopa, joins Mario. Mario heads to the castle of a dragon, Hooktail, in search of the star. In the castle, he makes use of Koops’s abilities to solve puzzles. This game is very persistent about making use of a character’s abilities in the chapter they join Mario. After Mario slays Hooktail, Koops’s father comes out of Hooktail’s stomach and gives them the first Crystal Star.

Between chapters, there is a Peach interlude and a Bowser interlude. It turns out Peach is trapped by a group called the X‐Nauts, led by Sir Grodus. She meets the computer at their headquarters, TEC, who becomes smitten with her and tries to help her escape. When Bowser finds out that someone else has kidnapped Peach, he sets off alongside Kammy Koopa to destroy the X‐Nauts and kidnap Peach. In most chapters, Bowser is a step behind Mario and the X‐Nauts. While the Peach interludes are generally tedious, the Bowser interludes make up for it by including a few platformer levels in which the player controls Bowser.

Mario goes to the Boggly Woods in search of the second Crystal Star. In the Rogueport Sewers, which has a pipe leading to the woods, he meets a Puni by the name of Punio. The Punies inhabit the Boggly Woods, and a crystal star is in their tree. Travelling to the woods, Mario encounters the Shadow Sirens, who are affiliated with the X‐Nauts. Mario defeats them and Madame Flurrie joins his party. She is a wind spirit who helps the Punies take their tree back from the clutches of the X‐Nauts. The boss of Chapter 2 is Lord Crump, using a robot named Magnus von Grapple. Mario is then told that the next Crystal Star is in a floating town called Glitzville. To get there, he allies with Don Pianta, the leader of the Pianta Syndicate. In Glitzville, Mario becomes a professional wrestler upon seeing the star on the champion’s belt. On his way to the title, Mario gains a Yoshi Kid, who can spit enemies at each other. He is needed to win one of the fights. Late in the chapter, Mario receives e‐mails from someone identifying themselves as “X”. This X tries to show Mario that the president of the wrestling league, Grubba, is up to no good. Upon defeating the champion, Rawk Hawk, Mario learns that the star on the champion’s belt is a fake. Mario then defeats Grubba, who was using the real Crystal Star to power a machine that drained the energy from fighters and kept him in shape.

In Chapter 4, Mario heads to Twilight Town and is told that a curse has been put on the town that turns people into pigs. Mario heads to Creepy Steeple to find out who has been causing the curse. It is in the steeple that one of just two optional bosses in the game can be fought, the Atomic Boo. When Mario is swarmed by Boos, he must hit them with his Super Hammer until the Boos turn into the Atomic Boo. By beating the Boo, Mario gains the Lucky Start badge, which gives him an ability at the start of every fight. Mario then defeats a nameless ghost who has been causing the curse. However, it turns out that the ghost stole Mario’s body and his partners, and Mario must learn his name to defeat him. (To prevent Mario from guessing his name properly until the end of the chapter, one of the letters in his name is removed from the screen on which Mario can guess his name). Vivian, the Shadow Siren who has been treated like crap by Beldam, leaves the Sirens and joins Mario. She can pull him into the shadows. Mario uses this to find the ghost’s name. He then defeats Doopliss and is rejoined by his partners. Mario heads to Keelhaul Key in Chapter 5. He and his crew are shipwrecked and must find a way to leave. Bobbery, a bob‐omb sailor, joins Mario’s party and helps him as he heads through Pirate’s Grotto. Mario then defeats the pirate Cortez and takes the Crystal Star. Mario then allies with Cortez, who allows Mario to use his ship to leave Keelhaul Key. (The ship can be used from that point on to go to the Key again to complete side quests).

Mario takes a fancy train called the Excess Express to upscale Poshley Heights in Chapter 6. Mario is mistaken for Luigi by a detective on board named Pennington. Mario then solves mysteries on the train and fights a boss called the Smorg. Mario then arrives in Poshley Heights to see Doopliss, Marilyn and Beldam (the other two Shadow Sirens) take what appears to be the Crystal Star. Pennington tells them it is a fake and Mario finds the real star. In Chapter 7, Mario heads to the X‐Naut Fortress on the moon to obtain the last Crystal Star. He defeats Magnus von Grapple 2.0 to take the final star.

Mario then heads to the door and enters. The first part of the chapter is in the Palace of Shadow. Mario defeats Hooktail’s brother, Gloomtail, at the end of the palace. Mario then finds an underground city and solves many puzzles in it. Mario fights Doopliss, Marilyn and Beldam during his time in the city. Upon exiting the city, Mario finally meets and defeats Grodus. He then fights Bowser a second time (the first was in Chapter 3). Grodus escapes the scene during the fight. He then finds the Shadow Queen, who takes her form in Princess Peach’s body. Mario must then defeat the queen to find the hidden treasure. Upon opening the treasure, Mario finds it is nothing more than a Dried Shroom.


This game is full of side quests. Some of these can be completed by using the Trouble Center in East Rogueport. Denizens of Rogueport ask for the completion of various tasks at the center and reward Mario for completing them. One of these, submitted by ?????, turns out to be submitted by Ms. Mowz, a Mouser who joins Mario’s party for solving the Trouble. The game’s Challenge Mode is called the Pit of 100 Trials. In the pit, Mario encounters an enemy on each level. After winning the fight, he can advance to another level. Mario obtains a reward and the ability to leave the pit on every tenth level. At the bottom of the pit is the other optional boss in the game, Bonetail.


This game has done a bang‐up job in following its predecessor. As the only Mario RPG for the Gamecube, it gives the player everything they want in an RPG. It has a detailed plot, a great hub city, and some amazing side quests. I give this game a 10/10.

Mario Calendar (WigglerWhoopin'Warrior135 (talk))

Hey there, awesome readers of The 'Shroom! Its WigglerWhoopin'Warrior135 here to tell you guys about Mario games released on the awful and cold I mean wonderful month of November over Mario's now 25-year history!

That's it for this month! Now go read the rest of the 'Shroom. Go. Now. Are you still reading this? GO!

Tip of the Month (FunkyK38 (talk))

Tip of the Month:
When voting in a proposal, make sure you don't use a signature. Use Username (talk). Also, make sure what you're saying relates to what's being proposed. If you can't think of anything specific to say about it, put Per:proposer, or commentor on the bottom.

NIWA News (RAP (talk))

Hello once more, I am RAP (talk), and this is NIWA News - where the weather rains with "NIWA", and the day decides to yell out important news into your ears! I apologize for last month's absence - I was preoccupied with life outside the computer, the majority of NIWA matters, and the recent flu that got me sick. I'm feeling much better, so let's get on the news from this month and last month.

In case you don't know, the following wikis have joined NIWA in spite of the recent changes of the requirements (one and a half of last month's activity),

  • Lylat Wiki (StarFox wiki) joins in October 1st. The wiki was created by Justin Folvarcik, a staff member of the ZeldaWiki. It's the seventh (7th) wiki to come aboard. Arwingpedia, a wiki hosted in Wikia is merging with the latter wiki, making some good progress. They are currently in stage 2 out of 4: "Modifying the new pages".
  • Pikipedia (Pikmin wiki), along with sub-wiki Piki Cannon joins to be picked by from Wikia hosting. This makes the eighth (8th) and ninth (9th) wiki.
  • StrategyWiki, a fan-run strategy wiki hangs aboard - making it the tenth (10th) wiki to join, and the first wiki to join not associated with a specific Nintendo series. The wiki made affiliations with Bulbapedia, and WiKirby regarding fan-made game guides before joining NIWA.
  • SmashWiki (Super Smash Bros. wiki) joins aboard in the Friday of October 29th, and becomes the second (or third wiki if you count Pikmin Fanon) to be picked up from Wikia hosting. Unlike the two Pikmin wikis, this wiki was formerly hosted somewhere else before being merged to Wikia's SSB wiki. Smash with 'em by visiting their wiki]! Tis the eleventh (11th) wiki to join!

For this month, not much news has's a slow month,

  • WikiBound (EarthBound/Mother wiki) - created by Tacopill hops board! It was once called PKWiki until the majority voted for the current name of the wiki. It's the twelve (12th) wiki to join the wiki.
  • Donkey Kong Wiki (DK wiki) joins in on Friday the 12th of November 2010. This makes it the thirteenth (13th) wiki to join the alliance, and the first wiki to cover a franchise that an existing wiki covers (excluding language-specific wikis) - The Super Mario Wiki. The founder of the wiki Porplemontage approved the procedure and let the wiki joined the alliance.
  • Next month, after months of trial and error - I'm going to announce a certain wiki I've been working on exclusively for NIWA.

That's quite all for this month's NIWA News. Again, it's quite slow this month, that's all I have to announce for the time. See you next time good reader.

Fading into Obscurity

by Marioguy1 (talk)

Why, hello there everyone! If you’re reading this, chances are you want to see Fading into Obscurity! Well then, that’s what you’ll get! This month I decided, due to a request from my new friend AxemGreen33 (talk), to review a mushroom with a special place in all our hearts. Remember, sending me requests is always possible if you want to see your favourite character, I am available on the forums by PM as “Constellation”, on chat as “MG1” and on the wiki here. So, this month I’ll be reviewing the not-so-tadpole, Mallow!

Mallow...ew GIF images D:

Mallow is a very old character from the very first Mario RPG, in 1996 (14 years ago), Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and since then he has never appeared again. I won’t focus too much on this but Geno also faded away, with a cameo in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Anyways, Mallow, in SMRPG, is Mario’s very first partner and the very first partner in any Mario game. He has powerful magic attacks and is apparently I’m not kidding...tadpole from Tadpole Pond. After being saved by Mario after Croco steals his Frog Coin, he joins up.

We need more pics of this guy...

Mallow has powerful elemental attacks with varying effects, from doing damage to healing. Throughout the game he can be equipped with new pants to raise his power. As he travels through the world, Mario gets more partners and more stars until they reach Nimbus Land, where Mallow comes back into effect. Apparently, Mallow is the prince of Nimbus Land and it is being taken over by Valentina and her overweight Dodo. Eventually Mallow saves the land, is reunited with his parents and then travels with Mario to go fight final-boss-guy. Then he decides to relax in Nimbus Land, and out of any further Mario games. Personally Mallow was my favourite partner in SMRPG (don’t hate on me for this, it’s not his attacks, I just like his humour) and I’m sad to say that he has faded into obscurity.

Character Reviews

by Marioguy1 (talk)

Well, this should be exciting! Welcome to Character Reviews, I’m your host, Marioguy1, here to begin a set of reviews! I am going to introduce a new feature, each month I will review last month’s character quickly and then compare the two characters’ scores at the end. So, last time on Character Reviews, I reviewed the big bad of BiS, Fawful! I pretty much praised Fawful for two paragraphs of each section. But when it came to BiS, I was too baffled to praise, that’s where Fawful lost marks. He ended up with a 78% (yes, I changed it to percentages). This month, to compare with him, I’ll be reviewing the green-bean thief, Popple!

Artwork of Popple from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
That’s a Popple.

Now, to be completely honest with you, I have never played Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga where Popple appears, but I’m reading his article so I should be able to deduce stuff.


Popple is a recurring boss in M&L: SS, he is battled a whole four times over the course of the game; twice with a braindead Bowser, once by himself and once with Birdo. He isn’t really too important to the storyline, he just helps integrate Bowser’s storyline into the game and really serves no purpose of his own. His first battle introduces Bowser, the second one shows Bowser flying off, the third one shows Popple without Bowser and the fourth one introduces Birdo to the game to satisfy those millions of Birdo-fans. So basically, he’s a puppet on the storyline string, 68%


-Quote of the Month :3
But seriously, his green face is fine, the bandanna is a nice touch, the hat and tuft of hair on top (and the bag) all make him look like a thief. But what I can’t get over is the fact that there is a gigantic triangle in his pants. Now that may or may not be suggestive to you people but to me, it’s ugly, his upper body is thief-like but the lower half makes me shudder; 45%


Well, his design is certainly humorous but other than that, I haven’t played the game and don’t know if he has any funny lines. I do know that he calls Birdo and Bowser both Rookie which is slightly funny so I’m just going to give him a general 70%


Popple doesn’t have much potential. He’s a common thief, not too major of a character, he lives only to support his “Rookies” and shouldn’t appear in another game. He could possibly star in a new game as the big bad but Nintendo won’t do that so I’ll give him 75%...

Used Potential

See, this is the thing, if the potential mark is low, the used potential mark will be high, 80% for using the little potential he has to the maximum extent; they basically puppeted around and made him support Bowser/Birdo to the utmost extent of his abilities.


GameServ, do your math! <GameServ>: MG1: (68+45+70+75+80)/5 = 67.2 Well, in that case, Popple will get 67%, compared to Fawful’s 78%, Popple is a worse character.

Lord Crump

Now, I’ve been requested to run down a list of bosses in a game that I particularly liked by a good friend of mine so I will begin today with the first boss of the game; Lord Crump. Now, Lord Crump is a recurring boss in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, he is the X-naut lieutenant and keeps reappearing.


Well, Crump is an excellent storyline character and fulfills all the roles of a lieutenant, going everywhere and being a good lieutenant for the X-Nauts. I honestly can’t complain about him, he was a good storyline character. 90%


This is where I get picky. Lord Crump Is Fat, LCIF, you’ll be seeing a lot of that in this section. Now, my first and formost comment about this design: LCIF. Secondly, I think the red beard and stuff looks nice, it really gives him a Santa Claus (with red hair) look because, LCIF. The goggles beneath a spiked helmet would make him look like a warrior; if the helmet wasn’t purple. That big, stretched out “X” makes his LCIFness tone itself down a lot so that it’s not too much of a problem. Finally his pants are purple. I do not think anyone looks threatening if they are suffering from LCIF syndrome, which he is, so there’s one more way too look at him; his outfit makes him look weak, which I think (hope) Nintendo was aiming for. So with respect to that, 80%


Crump’s outfit, his “buhhuhuh”s, his speech, his overall patheticness all helps move towards his comedic superiority. He’s basically a Bowser that can talk. So I say buhhuhuhuhuhuhu75%


He has a lot of potential considering he is the lieutenant of an army; he could lead the army, he could challenge Mario, he could take over a fortress, he could do all sorts of things, giving him a wide range of potential moves. He gets 80%

Used Potential

Anyone think I’m too lenient? Meh, anyways, he uses potential well, though I think he could have been a much more threatening character than he was but...I can’t control it, he gets 75%.


OK, GameServ’s on break so I added it up; it’s 400. Divide that by five and you get 80%; Crump is getting off to a good start.

Brawl Tactics

by FunkyK38 (talk)

Hello, Brawlers! Hope your November’s been good so far!

This month I will be discussing Marth, Prince of Altea!

Marth is a medium sized swordsman with fair speed and power. He’s a little on the light side, but he is very agile and his attacks are very fast.

Shield Breaker is Marth’s Standard Special. Like fellow swordsman Ike, Marth can charge up this move to increase its power. He won’t completely break the enemy’s shield, but he will lower its power a considerable amount. Since this is a charge move, you should either plan to use it quickly without charging or put Marth in a position where he can charge and then strike.

Dancing Blade is Marth’s Side Special. This attack is quite useful, because you can get in multiple strikes to do a good amount of damage to your opponents. You should try to get close to your opponents to use this move, since if they get away, you won’t be able to keep attacking them.

Dolphin Slash is Marth’s up special. This, in my opinion, is one of the fastest recovery moves in the game, so you should use it carefully. Marth can get a lot of distance back when he uses this move, and when not used as a recovery move, it can do a lot of damage. But be careful when using it on moving stages or near the edge of a stage – Marth isn’t able to move very far from side to side, so make sure you’ve got something close by to grab on to.

Counter is Marth’s Down Special. This move is also shared by Ike. Like other counters, this move is tricky to use if you haven’t mastered it yet. I’m not very good at using this move, but I try my best. You have to be aware of your opponent’s attacks at all times in order to make this move work to your advantage. It's better to make sure that there’s no one behind you, either.

Critical Hit is Marth’s Final Smash. This is a hard one to master, as you’ve got to have good aim or else it might result in a KO for Marth. If you use this move on a stage that doesn’t have any walls on the sides, you have to do it further away from edges, because Marth will charge right off the edge of the stage if you don’t hit your opponent. It’s tricky to hit your opponent, too, because you have to hit in a straight line. If you do hit, however, it usually results in a KO, so practice hard and be careful!

That’s it for this month, Brawlers! Happy dueling with Marth!

Mario Kart: Wheel Tips Corner

by Coincollector (talk)

Due to University and education issues, I, your friend Coincollector, am not able to give you the Mario Kart tip of this month. Sorry. I hope all you good readers can understand this situation. But fasten your seatbelts, because I’ll give you more and new information in Mario Kart: Wheel Tips Corner next month. See ya!

Flag Contest

As part of our end‐of‐the‐year festivities, we have decided to organize a contest! The goal is to create a flag to represent the Mario Wiki! Here are the rules:

  • Create a flag to represent the Wiki!
  • The flag can be based off a real national, state, etc. flag, though it must be altered in some way.
  • Designs that are completely original are also accepted.
  • Accepted dimensions for the flags are:
    • 500px by 1 000px
    • 630px by 990px
    • 600px by 1 000px
  • The more, the merrier! There is no limit to the number of flag designs you can submit.
  • To avoid bias, the artists’ names will be kept anonymous during voting, though the names will be revealed following the end of the contest.

To send me your flag, create the image on Photoshop, GIMP or some other image editing software. Then, upload it to Imageshack. It’s a great site for image hosting, and you can get a free account there. Once you have uploaded your flag, PM it to me on the forum. Along with the flag, please include a brief description of the flag. For example, if you were describing the American flag:

Flag of the United States of America since July 4, 1960. For North American (and sometimes South American) release dates.
The American flag.

In the top‐left corner of the flag (the canton), there is a blue square with 50 white stars, one for each state. Thirteen stripes, alternating red and white, take up the rest of the flag. The 50 stars represent the 50 states and the 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies.

It doesn’t need to be very detailed. A basic description like that is all you need.

Entries will be open from now until November 7th. No late entries will be accepted! Following the entry period, the voting round will start, and it will end November 14th.

If you are looking for flags to base your design on, use these sources:

Voting is closed


To vote just use the {{user}} template, preceded by a #, and place your name under a flag, without any comments. You may only vote for one flag. The flag with the most votes by next Sunday will win. NO anonymous votes, you may vote for your flag, but you may not say it is your flag.

Daisy's Pastel Dream, a composition by me.

The Princess is presenting herself from her best side tonight. She is sporting a dream of decent pastel colors, a lovely and tender veil of soft colors that soothe the human eyes. It's modest appearance contrasts sharply with the wild and vibrant colors of the messages in the background. On top of this delicate fabrication of sensationsrests a distinct, yet graceful touch of bold ebony letters on top of a pearl-white gleam. This masterful symphony of shapes and colors leads the viewer with a firm, yet pleasant grasp, until their journey of awe comes to a circle in the bottom left corner, where Princess Daisy meets the beholder's gaze and greets them merrily. The lady herself is wearing a mustard-colored dress with puffy sleves which resonate tactfully with the princess' main accessory: The megaphone. All in all this astounding composition is an ode to the grace of mankind's society, as well as an inspiring metaphor for the meaning of words.

Thank you for the attention. I'll be selling prints for $3000.00 per piece for the rest of the evening.

It is based off of the Welsh flag. I have changed the boring red dragon to Porple's colors, because he is the founder of the Wiki. I have also changed the green to red, because that is the color associated with the Mario series.
