No, that part of the manual calls him 大魔王クッパ Great Demon King Koopa


That's interesting. I wonder if the same is true in subsequent games. You might also find it interesting that "Great Demon King" is also Ganon(dorf)'s title in the Japanese version of the Zelda games.

ノコノコ

Noko Noko

"noh-koh-noh-koh"

It means unconcernedly or nonchalantly.

There's a few instances where you can see this Japanese name slipping through the localization cracks. Super Mario RPG has the NokNok Shell weapon. The strangely unlocalized enemy names of Super Mario Land include Nokobon (as in bomb-Koopa) and then Super Mario Land 2 got the Noko Bombette, which even throws in the Japanese name for Buzzy Beetle, Metto (from helmet, "herumetto")!
I know that Koopa Troopas are called Noko Nokos, but is Bowser called "King of the Noko Nokos"?

In America, "Bowser" is the King of a group of intelligent turtles called "the Koopas" or "the Koopa". However, I know that in Japan, "Koopa" is the name of the character called "Bowser" in America. What are "the Koopas/Koopa" called in Japan?

Dude, Grant Kirkhope is doing the music for Kingdom Battle.

I think this game sets some kind of all-time record for pre-release swing difference from "this seems horrible" to "this seems incredible".

That is so true!

I was close! I was right that the ledge climb animation puts him out of bounds, and that this is what kills you, but wrong that there's floor to stand on, that invisible walls exist, and that falling off of a stage is falling out of bounds. Out of bounds is the absence of any kind of floor beneath Mario and results in space the game normally refuses to move you into, which is similar to a wall or ceiling. This video explains how it works.

Out-of-bounds discussion begins at 30:27 and the castle roof instance is used as an example of getting into out-of-bounds at 33:31.
