Super Mario Bros. Leftovers

by Steve Napierski to Videos

From the multiple posts on the site it should be blatantly apparent that I am a fan of Super Mario Bros. Crossover. And as such, I thought it would be cool to do a video containing some of the characters that didn’t make the cut. I’m willing to bet that you guys can think of tons of other characters that I should have included, but these are the five that I definitely wanted to add. There were other supporting characters that I could think wouldn’t make the cut either (Hardhat from the Mega Man series is one that comes to mind), but I wanted to keep it to what would be considered NES “protagonists.”

I want to thank Giro, Nuckel & Yousuf for getting me copies of the sprites for Lizzie and Dirk the Daring. I really appreciate it.

One last thing, I’m going to be at ConnectiCon Friday through Sunday. So if you’re in at the con or in the Connecticut vicinity, stop by and say, “Hi.”

    I liked that. Though I would love to have Mario on a vehicle in one of the 3D games (Loved riding a Koopa shell in Super Mario 64).

    Amazing! This just made my weekend! Thank you so much!

    As for listing other NES characters: Kirby! Sucks up a goomba and loses the ability to jump, or sucks up a pipe and goombas start walking out of him.

    Hope you have fun at Connecticon,

    The whole thing was great, but that last little touch with the mushroom bumping into the tetra piece was perfect, I actually laughed out loud with that bit!

      I thought all the people who called Goombas “mushroom” were extinct :P

      By the way, this animation was extremely well done. I bet SMBC’s creator will love that idea… oh and by the way, I liked Lizzie, I want to play as her :(

    Seriously though – on that Tetris note. has anyone played Tuper Tario Tros?
    Someone made a Super Mario Bros and tetris crossover aleready.
    BTW – it is awesome. That gap that mario just can’t jump over…. fill it with tetris blocks

    That was a funny parody. Im sure the guy who created crossover is probably laughing right now.

    Haha, some of characters are funny. Poor Excite Bike guy couldn’t get over the first pipe. XD

    And a suggestion, eh? Hmm, how about Bowser? XD

    Sorry to be one of those ‘correction people’ but the Hardhat from MegaMan you mention is called a Metool (met – Tool) More classically known as simply a ‘Met’

    As for the comic animation itself. Very amusing. ^_^

      Also commonly known stateside as the Hardhat. Mettool, Mettaur, and Mettal are all variations that are more accurate, sure, but you may as well be arguing that he should call Mega Man “Rockman” instead.

      I do admire your dedication at any rate. ;D

    What game is Lizzie from again? I haven’t played it in years!

      Lizzie is from the game Rampage. You run around as big movie monsters smashing up cities (thus the levelling of Kooper’s Castle). I always found it really fun for about twenty minutes, then I’d instantly get bored of it. Its probably due for another remake around now, they just need to look to games like Blast Corps in order to give it a bit more staying power if they’re going to go with consoles instead of arcade.
