Hello! I'm Agent. I stumbled across this wiki around 2010, and have since consulted it frequently. I have Super Mario Wiki to thank for the depth of my love of the Mario franchise, and for introducing me to fan wikis. Having used other such wikis extensively, I now feel equipped to give back to this one and its contributors, but don't hesitate to message me if I make a mistake.

I started engaging with Mario during the Nintendo DS and Wii era. I'm most invested in the core series, Mario Kart, and the role-playing games. The franchise feels vast, and I often enjoy learning more and discussing certain works. Strategy guides, Let's Plays, and fangames like Super Mario 63 and Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii have influenced me as much as the official games themselves. For credibility, below is my completion progress in the games I own.

Game Comments
Super Mario 64 DS I've any% completed Super Mario 64 DS. I haven't played the original much, but online exposure has given me a comprehensive sense of its content. I feel fairly acquainted with the modern culture around the game. However, as I view Super Mario 64 from after its historical context, I may never fully understand the circumstances that made it so significant.
Mario Kart DS I've completed the Grand Prix, but not Mission Mode. I didn't get to play online before Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was discontinued, so I'm probably less familiar with this than later Mario Kart games.
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time The plot's tone initially deterred me from playing. I haven't completed the game since, but I've watched a Let's Play that has.
New Super Mario Bros. This was my first game for a mainstream gaming console. I've 100% completed the main Mario Game mode.
Super Paper Mario I've any% completed the game. (I can't imagine reaching 100% completion.) My first playthrough was a strange introduction to the Paper Mario series in an era where its course was changing.
Super Mario Galaxy I've 100% completed the game. It's probably among my favorites.
Mario Kart Wii I've completed the Grand Prix. As with Mario Kart DS, I didn't get to play online before Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection was discontinued. However, I've watched a lot of recorded gameplay over the years.
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story I played up through part of the final area, and have watched a Let's Play covering the remainder.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii I've 100% completed the game, and played multiplayer in all modes.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 I've any% completed the game. Weighing it against the first Super Mario Galaxy is surprisingly interesting. I think they're pretty evenly matched despite their differences.
Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem I've any% completed the game.
Super Mario 3D Land I've 100% completed the game. I like it more than I probably should.
Mario Kart 7 I've completed the Grand Prix with three stars. This is the first Mario Kart game I played online, giving me much more firsthand experience.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 I've any% completed the main Solo Play mode. It is a bizarre microcosm of the wasted potential I perceive in its era of the franchise.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star I haven't completed the game. Fan backlash against Sticker Star has mobilized me to learn more about the Paper Mario series at large.
New Super Mario Bros. U I 100% completed Story Mode on the Wii U version in only a few days, and have played some multiplayer. I haven't completed Challenge Mode.
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Though I have the game, I haven't played it yet.
Super Mario 3D World (+ Bowser's Fury) I 100% completed the Nintendo Switch version with multiplayer, a feature I've used on both releases. It eases the excessive completion requirements, but we struggled against the camera, carrying controls, and landing from bubbles.

I've also 100% completed Bowser's Fury, and am ecstatic to finally enjoy an open-world campaign. Strategizing around Fury Bowser can make the less impressive missions interesting, though I find Fury Blocks uncreative and bad for the pacing.

Mario Kart 8 I've completed the Grand Prix on the Wii U version with three stars, and must have played online more than any other Mario game. Given its unusually long lifespan, I feel pretty familiar with Mario Kart 8.
Yoshi's Woolly World I haven't completed my own copy of the game. I cleared the final course on someone else's save file, if that means anything.
Super Mario Maker I received at least 200 stars, and cleared over 1,200 courses. I doubt those are very impressive numbers, but I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out of the game.
Super Mario Odyssey I've any% completed the game. I lost the will for 100% completion because I don't find most of this game's content fun. It's a shame. At the time, I was relying on this game to explain the appeal of Super Mario 64 and Sunshine with modern polish, but I only emerged with greater alienation and cynicism.
Super Mario Maker 2 I've made some courses, 100% completed Story Mode, and played online. Sadly, the lack of pointer controls and game style cross-compatibility has burnt me out on Course Maker.
Mario Party Superstars I've unlocked everything in Toad's Shop but the music. After I started getting burnt out on the game, which I don't hold against it as I assume it's designed to be played less often, I started looking into other Mario Party games for the first major time.

Projects

These are my current plans and initiatives on the wiki.

List of articles every Super Mario Wiki should have

Goals

100/100 Attempt a guideline of 100 basic articles every Mario-focused wiki should contain.

Inspired by Meta-Wiki's list of articles every Wikipedia should have, this is a list of 100 basic articles as a suggestion for any new Mario-focused wikis. Top-priority entries are marked in bold.

This was made as a fun exercise and holds no official weight. As it's based on my perspective at one point in time, it's somewhat arbitrary. However, if you feel strongly, you can contact me to propose changes.
