** A fair idea might be that in the original ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'', Bowser had already won before Mario and Luigi had arrived at the scene, so the place was suffering from the effects of that. Think ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'' with Toad Town or Hollijolli Village. All things considered, it comes down to either time, the fact the invasion had hit before Mario raced to the rescue and destroyed most architecture, or Decade Dissonance.

* Why did Kammy replace Kamek in the ''VideoGame/PaperMario'' series? Was it really necessary to create another 'KingMook Magikoopa who is Bowser's BeleagueredAssistant' character when ''SuperMarioBros'' already has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, especially when there's no in-universe explanation for Kammy's presence?

** It's probably so the two brothers are not {{Moveset Clone}}s. Remember that in SuperMarioBrosTheLostLevels, there was both a Mario and a Luigi mode. The low traction is probably for CompetitiveBalance, as just being able to jump higher than Mario would've made him a GameBreaker. It's almost been a tradition ever since.

** He's not just some shmuck -- he's a famous and respected hero, not to mention essentially the Mushroom Kingdom's army. It actually kind of makes sense in a Feudal Europe kind of way for him to be granted lands and a title. It's still weird that we've never seen the castle before or since.

** Bowser's sole visible motivation is throwing the best wedding ever. (Though presumably marrying Peach will also make him the ''de facto'' heir to the Mushroom Kingdom, if not ''de juris'', he never mentions this.) There's no mention of causing the end of anything but his bachelorhood.

* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' makes this pretty clear: the Metro Kingdom (which is also where ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'' takes place). Every kingdom has its own dominant species, and humans are one among many. Mario and Luigi's parents probably immigrated to the Mushroom Kingdom from the Metro Kingdom. This also explains Princess Peach; she probably has both Toad and Metro Human ancestors, and favors her human side. At this point any trace of Brooklyn origin has been definitively [[RetCon retconned]] away.

** Yoshis are hermaphroditic reptiles with male personalities that can lay eggs. Birdo is biologically male but spits eggs out of her mouth. Who's to say Bowser didn't give birth to his kids himself?
