** In DiddyKongRacing, you see ''Banjo-Kazooie'' characters and [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay Conker]] (This was while his game was still intended to be kid-friendly).

And I have evidence to back this up, most notably that Madame Clairvoya in ''LuigisMansion'' said that Bowser had been "soundly defeated" by Mario. NeverSayDie at work here, perhaps? Later, in ''SuperMarioSunshine'' (assuming that the games take place in release order), no one seems to suspect that Bowser [[HijackedByGanon was behind the whole plot]] even though he ''always'' is behind the whole plot. Perhaps he went into hiding after being defeated in ''64'' and had Bowser Jr. in the meantime. That's why everyone was so surprised to see him in ''Sunshine''.

* [[SiblingTeam Mario and Luigi]] have been previously shown to care for each other and have very strong bonds. Just look at LuigisMansion and LuigisMansionDarkMoon for [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for such moments.]] So brotherly love.

*Jossed,due to sheer stupidity and Paper Mario being confirmed non-canon(it still happened in a DIFFERENT UNIVERSE,and everything except Super Mario Maker is canon TO ITSELF)

This is not to imply that Peach (or her unseen father) is unwise, but that Bowser, for all his {{Badass}}ery and {{Card Carrying Villain}}y, would not necessarily make a worse sovereign than her, especially if his personality in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' or the ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigi'' series were to prevail. He is at times seen as TooDumbToLive and suffering the WorfEffect, but he is also prone to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome moments of great accomplishment]]. And Peach...she keeps getting kidnapped (or ''lets'' herself get kidnapped). If Bowser were to rule, the decor might get darker, fierier and spikier, but when it comes to the really tough decisions he'd know better than to involve himself excessively in the day-to-day affairs of the kingdom -- life in Toad Town and everywhere else would likely be business as usual under largely unchanged government. Bowser is more greedy than he is cruel, and Peach's assets are at least as opulent. If Bowser sat at the throne over the entire land for long enough and doesn't mess up too much, he might actually be seen fondly. Besides, if Peach is the heir of the Mushroom Kingdom and she's already [[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine laid at least one of Bowser's eggs (whether or not it was Bowser Jr)]], that child could actually be ''her'' natural heir ''anyway'', and it wouldn't exactly be the first time a kingdom of Toads had a figurehead who looks very decidedly un-Toad-like.

This is what enables her to float on thin air. It makes since knowing that Peach has and uses white magic.

** Additionally, Bowser employs a few powerups in the finale of ''VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld'' and in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3''.



We know they do starting in SuperMario3DLand, but it seems likely that some of the enemies in earlier games are just normal ones with power-ups. For example, Paragoombas and Paratroopas are normal Goombas and Koopas after using Wings (from SuperMarioWorld and SuperMario64 DS). It seems that their wing-loss isn't permanent (in PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor, you can fight a few specific individuals multiple times, and they'll regain their wings each time), so this could explain why.

[[WMG: The reason we don't see the Kings from SMB3, Prince Pine and King Fret anymore]]
Is because the Koopalings transformed them into creatures of the Mushroom World and brainwashed them into thinking they were creatures all along and tranformed their servants into Bricks.

Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS showed us that any of the Koopalings can turn into Shadow Mario. It was likely one of them that filled the role while Bowser Jr. played as himself.

While the Mario series has been known for simplistic ExcusePlot stories there probably was a canon for the series back during the NES and SNES eras since we can just easily assume that Super Mario Bros 1 to World all follow each other and games like SuperMarioLand are simply side stories. However during the N64 era not too long after when Mario 64 came out the series was starting to focus more on Spinoffs like the Mario Party series and Side games than Main Series games. (In which over the years the "Main Series" games appeared so infrequently in which it got to the point where it can be difficult to tell what could be considered a "Main Series" game nowadays.) Oh sure there were Mario Spin Off games before the N64 such as Yoshi's Cookie and the original Super Mario Kart but the franchise seemed to have focused more into that ever since the N64 era. There is also the fact that ever since the 90s, the series has gone into the Role Playing Game genre starting with SuperMarioRPG but now going into the PaperMario and MarioAndLuigi games in which these games are normally not ExcusePlot games at all (especially most of the PaperMario games).

It's likely that Mario & co. just buy more One-Up Mushrooms online whenever they have enough coins. Conveniently, there's no tax, and the entire Mushroom Kingdom has Wi-Fi. That also explains why you stockpile money in the RPGs instead (since traditional lives don't work, there's no reason to buy them).
