[[http://mushroomgo.thecomicseries.com Mushroom Go]] is a drawn comic based loosely on the SuperMarioBros series.

A [[SuperMarioBros Toad]] named Go wakes up in the desert alone. He’s suffering from sunstroke and exhaustion, he can’t remember a thing, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and he’s lost his hat]]. Just when he thinks this is the end ([[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt and on the first page, no less]]), he is picked up by the crew of the [[CoolShip Chainless]], the world’s only [[spoiler:(working)]] sand ship.

* [[NaiveNewcomer Go]]: A Toad. [[MysteriousPast His past is a mystery]], [[EasyAmnesia even to himself]]. [[spoiler: At least things start out that way]]. Has some [[ElementalPowers magic powers]], as [[WitchSpecies all Toads]] do. Does most of the [[FirstPersonSmartass narrating]].

The BadassCrew consists of
* [[TheGoodCaptain Captain Martello]]: A female [[SuperMarioBros Koopa]]. TheCaptain and [[WrenchWench resident mechanic]]
* [[DeadpanSnarker McCoy]]: A [[VideoGame/YoshisIsland Raven]], and Martello’s [[TheLancer Second in Command]].
* [[DitzyGenius Palma]]: A [[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Pianta]], the youngest member of the Crew.
* [[TheVoiceless Guy]]: A [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Shyguy]]. Despite [[ScaryBlackMan his appearance]], he’s the weakest fighter in the crew, [[spoiler:at least until Go joins]], and kind of a [[NiceGuy softy]]. ([[BewareTheNiceOnes not that you should mess with him!]]) [[TeamMom Does most of]] [[RealMenWearPink the household tasks]] around the Chainless.

Has unfortunately been put on permanent hiatus. However, an outline on how the plot would probably played out is on the main page and a group of commenters will be collaborating on a comic that takes place in the same universe.

!!This WebComic provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Martello and Palma.
* AscendedFanon: The pink bob-omb that Guy befriends was deemed Squishie by the fans, and soon his name in the comic was revealed to be [[LeetSpeak 5QU15H-IE]].
* {{Badass}}
* {{BFG}}
* BerserkButton: Don't suggest that Palma is weak for a Pianta.
* BigBrotherInstinct: [=McCoy=], towards Guy:
--> '''[=McCoy=]''': (to Guy) But if you need like, a cool big brother type... I guess I don't mind you following me.
* BigDamnHeroes
* BigOlEyebrows: [=McCoy=]’s are orange.
* ClothingDamage
* CombatMedic: [[spoiler:Guy.]]
* CoolMask: Guy.
* CrazyPrepared: Martello is showing signs of this.
* DesertPunk
* EasyAmnesia: Go. [[spoiler: Subverted, though, when we find out he just had a hangover.]]
* FeatherFingers
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Captain Martello fills all the requirements, despite not actually being the main character.
** TheLancer: [=McCoy=]
** TheSmartGuy[=/=]{{The Chick}}: Palma,
** TheBigGuy: Guy
** TheSixthRanger: Go.
* GeniusBruiser: Palma.
* LastNameBasis: Palma, Martello, possibly the entire crew.
* MeaningfulName: Go. Aside from its connotation as a verb, it's also the Japanese number five--with Go being the fifth member of the Chainless. Also [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martello_tower Martello]].
** Also worth noting that "Martello" is Italian for "hammer." Guess what Captain Martello's favorite melee weapon is.
* MysteriousPast: Go [[spoiler:and Palma]].
* NeverGetsDrunk: Go, of all [[http://www.mushroomgo.thecomicseries.com/comics/62 people]].
* NoNameGiven: Technically [[spoiler:Guy]], whose real name is unknown.
* OriginalFlavour: Despite having a [[DarkerAndEdgier slightly more serious tone]], this world seems very familiar.
* PeekABangs: Go.
* PersonalityPowers: Inverted. Go's attitude changes depending on what kind of magic he's using. So, a fire flower makes him more reckless and hot-headed.
* {{Pirate}}s
--> '''[=McCoy=]''': What we do encompasses a great deal, really. Looting desert-side cities, treasure hunting and old fashioned grave robbery…
* PirateGirl: Martello is actually the captain of her ship. There's also Palma, who acts more like she's just along for the ride.
* QuicksandSucks: The dry variety.
* SandIsWater: {{Justified|Trope}}. The Chainless handles well on quicksand but not on the regular stuff, and seems to be the only vessel capable of doing so.
* ShiftingSandLand: Takes place in the TropeNamer.
* ShirtlessScene: Go has a few.
** WalkingShirtlessScene: [=McCoy=] has worn a shirt exactly [[http://mushroomgo.thecomicseries.com/comics/20/ once,]] and it was open.
* SigilSpam: The mascot/logo of the Chainless, as seen [[http://mushroomgo.thecomicseries.com/comics/20/ aboard the ship]] and on [[http://mushroomgo.thecomicseries.com/comics/53 Martello's belt buckle]], is a green eyed [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Chain_Chomp Chomp]]. With no chain, of course.
* TheSilentBob: Guy.
* SmokingIsCool: [=McCoy=] can make anything look cool.
* SpriteComic: {{Averted}}.
* TheVoiceless: Guy.
* TheSoCalledCoward: [[spoiler:(Guy.)]]

* AGodAmI: [[spoiler: Thrive]]: [[center: ''[[IAmLegion I am more than a single creature, you see.]] I am order in its purest form. I am true harmony's product. I have watched this world in patience, in silence since before you beasts fumbled into your existence. [[BadassBoast I am creation. I am eternity.]] [[HiveMind I am every flower, every tree, every blade of grass united.]] But for you primitive animals, requiring a guttural sound to be tied to every entity... You may call me [[spoiler:Thrive]]]]''
* BadassBoast: ''*AHEM* "Sir, you seem to think you can take a person's lighter without winning it in a stupid bet first. Do you see this cigarette? I pulled this cigarette out of a dead guy's pocket. It's not even a brand I like. I smoke Reznor Reds, and this --Trust Me-- is no Reznor Red. But I'm going to smoke it anyway, and you, you big jackass, you have what may well be the only lighter in this entire stupid building. Not just any lighter, but my lighter. Now, one way or another, I am going to smoke this cigarette and I am going to enjoy every awful second of it. [[BringIt So come on, let's do this.]]"''

* SympathyForTheDevil: Palma's [[LastSecondChance speech]] to [[spoiler:Thrive]] [[http://mushroomgo.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/60917 evokes this]].
** It might have qualified for a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming [[IgnoredEpiphany if it had worked]].
* WillingChanneler: What [[spoiler:Thrive]] tried to get [[spoiler:Palma]] to submit to, though [[spoiler:he]] actually wanted to turn [[spoiler:her]] into a LivingBodysuit.

!!''At Twisters Borough'' contains examples of:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In-universe of [[spoiler:Mario]].
* ArsonMurderAndJayWalking
-->'''TheSheriff:''' I'm placing you under arrest for robbery, fraud, kidnapping, arson, attacking officers, indecent exposure... [[SarcasmMode Anything I'm missing?]]\\
'''Martello''': [[DeadpanSnarker I am surprised you did not mention murder.]]
* BarBrawl
* BoomTown
* BreatherEpisode: Intentionally made to be one, but this is soon [[SubvertedTrope subverted]].
* CattlePunk
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: A side effect of fusing [[spoiler: [[InVinoVeritas magic and alcohol]]]].
* TheDreaded: The Koopas view Mario as such.
* DrowningMySorrows
* {{Gayngster}}: [[spoiler: [[MachoCamp Birdo]]]] [[AmbiguousGender (probably)]], and co. [[ThoseTwoBadGuys The other two members]] are a CampGay and a ButchLesbian, respectively.
* GrievousBottleyHarm: [[spoiler: How Haze knocks out Go.]]
* HumansAreCthulhu: The story of an [[http://mushroomgo.com/comics/59/ encounter with Mario]] makes him sound like this.
--> "Any crazy stories you've heard about him are probably true. He can break bricks with his bare hands. He can leap 30 feet into the air if he chooses not to fly."
* ImplacableMan: Mario. From the Koopa side, he's a nightmarish fusion of multiple badasses all rolled together into a short, pudgy little body. ''Nothing'' can stop him.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Haze and Charlie. In fact, [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair Haze has pink hair]] and [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Charlie wears blue clothes.]]
* MookHorrorShow: The flashback with Martello’s father shows Mario like this. He's seen (by the Koopas at least) as an unstoppable force of nature that can wipe out whole ships worth of elite troops.
* NoodleIncident: A couple times.
-->'''Go:''' And that's why I don't eat the mega mushrooms any more.\\
\\
'''[=McCoy=]:''' Indecent exposure? When did that happen? . . . Wait, yeah. Nevermind. I'd arrest me for that, too.
* OneManArmy: Mario. He's considered the Mushroom Kingdom's ''real'' army. Look down to ShroudedInMyth and you'll start to see why. The fact that he can fly, throw fireballs, and perform feats of strength and agility no other mortal being can match may explain it.
* ShoutOut: [[SuperSmashBros Those crates look awfully familiar.]]
* ShroudedInMyth: Mario himself. "Any crazy stories you've heard about him are probably true. He breaks bricks with his bare hands. He can leap 30 feet in the air when he chooses not to fly. Some even claim that he's not a Toad at all--that he's somethin' else, [[HumansAreCthulhu somethin' from beyond]]." The fact that we know these stories are true only makes Mario viewed from the Koopa standpoint all the more terrifying.
* WretchedHive
