Dangerous machinery and terrain exist in real life too. I'm sure most residents of the Mushroom Kingdom (and probably the broader Mario 'verse by extension) generally don't have such an experience just like those living in modern organized societies don't.

The entire premise of Super Mario Bros. is that Mario is going on a dangerous rescue mission. Bit of selection bias going on when your game camera focuses on the guy facing down all the peril.

Earth has water in order to support life.

The Mushroom Kingdom has bottomless pits in order to support fun.

Mario Chat / Why is the Mushroom Kingdom dangerous?
« Last post by WarioLandMan on November 20, 2022, 12:29:56 PM »
I was playing Super Mario the other day, and I started to wonder: why is the Mushroom Kingdom such a perilous place with all these bottomless pits and moving platforms?

I understand that the Koopas and Goombas are enemies working for King Bowser, but why is the rest of the landscape so dangerous?

"Alan MacMasters: How the great online toaster hoax was exposed" (article)
Quote
For more than a decade, a prankster spun a web of deception about the inventor of the electric toaster. His lies fooled newspapers, teachers and officials. Then a teenager flagged up something that everyone else had missed.

Is this the sultan you were talking about?
(answer: yes) 
He might be the same voice actor.  It's tough to tell... In any case, I feel almost certain there was a character in one of the Mario cartoons that sounds exactly like the Kamek in the movie trailer.

It's going to bug me, too.  Sorry if it also bugs you now, hehe.

I recognize Kamek's voice from Super Mario Bros. Super Show.  I can't quite put my finger on an exact character, though.
(wonders about whether the "Kamek" mentioned in this message was a reference to a certain character in the video on this page (specifically between these points of its length: 5:06 - 5:15) or a reference to a certain character similar to that character in a certain animated "Super Mario World" episode named "Ghosts 'R' Us" ("Wizenheimer"))

(note #1: the "Wizerheimer" and "Sultan Pasbah" mentioned on this page thus far appeared to have had voices similar to each other)

(note #2: certain "Super Mario Bros. Super Show" segments appeared to have had at least one "Beezo" character appear with voices similar to the character in the video mentioned just before the note just before this one)
