One of the other things that gets me about Mario is... he's not Mario. The Mario we know from those incredible platformers and Super Mario Sunshine can't be the same one from Brawl and the SMS box. In Brawl, he's just so... D:< all the time. The jolliest thing he does is say "Here we go!" when you select him using a non-GameCube controller. In the game, it's all about scowling and sounding utterly unenthusiastic. I don't know WHAT Luigi is, but at least Luigi's face isn't boiling with rage.

They really brought out the weird in Luigi for SMBB, with the trippy final smash sequence, "bang bang" taunt when you win, and other stuff like that.

ROB and Olimar are my best characters.

And I consistently hate Donkey Kong.

I actually like that portrayal of Mario better. It's less obnoxious, more heroic, and a greater contrast to Luigi. He has the "Brooklyn mentality", something that I, as a Brooklynite, appreciate in such a character.

Towards Bird Person and The Chef: I don't think Mario looks like he's boiling with rage as much as he appears to be grim with seriousness. And as far as I know, Mario maintains a fairly serious demeanor in every game where you can clearly see his mouth (non-sports games after LM).

Maybe the portly plumber knows when to act goofy and when to take the bull by the horns? I mean, he is in the ring with people like Snake, Ganondorf and Bowser after all.

My opinion is that since he's supposed to be Mr. Nintendo (or whatever he was called in the SSB64 character bio) and there are guests (Sonic and Snake; I suppose you could count Grey Fox and Shadow too) this time around, he's behaving himself and acting as more of a fighter than the happy-go-lucky party animal he is.

And that's fine, for battle-ready poses. But c'mon, when you're taunting your enemy (especially if you choose to tip your hat to do so), you should be smiling victoriously, or at least smugly...

Though I did catch him looking more like Jolly Mario!



Nothing wrong with a "Hah!" face while fighting.

Guess Mario's personality may be deeper than people give him credit for. You don't need dialog to capture a character's personality.

Mario looks more Insane Evil Mastermind than Jolly in that picture.
