'''''The Three Mushketeers''''' is an [[http://userpedia.adriels.com/wiki/TTM online webcomic]] made by the user "Mason" of the [[TheWikiRule Super Mario Wiki]]. It is a SpriteComic featuring the adventures of Mason, a red [[SuperMarioBros Magikoopa]], Solar Blaze, a [[CoolShades sunglasses-donning]] [[PaperMario Ember]], and Gupdoo, a pink [[YoshisIsland Yoshi]]. Later on, Gupdoo is replaced by Neptune, a white Bowser.

The three unlikely heroes must journey through the Macadamia Realm to find the seven [[MacGuffin Shine Sprites]] scattered across the land. Most of the comic's characters are users of the Super Mario Wiki itself. The comic is also plagued with [[HurricaneOfPuns puns]] and [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]].

The comic is completed, with 150 issues and a sequel, titled ''Anton the Fifth Mushketeer''.

-----
!!''The Three Mushketeers'' contains examples of:
* {{Adorkable}}: Mason can be seen as this.
* AllJustADream: One issue has Neptune dreaming about defeating [[spoiler:Tucayo]] just by existing.
-->'''[[spoiler:Tucayo]]''': Gah, I can't stand Neptune's stunning good looks!
* AllThereInTheScript: Userpedia's page for the comic refers to the generic Toad in Boo Woods "Creepy Toad".
* AmbiguousDisorder: Heck, almost all of the characters. Most of the time, it's Mason.
* AmusingInjuries: Mason is blasted, fried, gotten his mouth forcefully removed, and turned into Oprah Winfrey throughout the comic. They only last for either a panel or a few issues.
* ArtShift: In Issue 46, "[[http://userpedia.adriels.com/wiki/File:Mushketeers_i046.PNG Soggy Inconsistency]]", the sprite style changes every panel for no apparent reason.
-->'''Mason''': I can't quite put my finger on it.
-->'''Neptune''': [[CrowingMomentOfFunny That's because you have no fingers.]]
** Sometimes, a panel is actual art. For example, the issue with Weed-B-Gone has a MS Paint looking picture of him holding it.
** Issue 110 has a bloated PaperMario styled Special Edition. However, this was the Mother's Day special, and this was only to make it easier to read for Mason's mother.
* AwesomeMcCoolname: And how! Solar Blaze, Neptune, Spiny Master...
* BigBad: Bowser.
* [[spoiler: BiggerBad: Gamefreak.]]
* BittersweetEnding: Depends on [[spoiler: which way you interpret Gamefreak's fate]]. The Statue of Liberty [[spoiler:is Gamfreakified, and Gamefreak escapes from jail]], but [[spoiler:Hoo and Hee blow the Statue of Liberty up.]]
* BizarroEpisode: A few of the issues can qualify as this, if you count "bizarre" as "completely insane and ridiculous". One example is the one with "'''''I'M NOT MASON!'''''".
* BlackMage: Mason could qualify as this.
* ButtMonkey: ''Everyone'' that isn't Solar Blaze or Neptune.
** Mason is fried, turned into Oprah Winfrey, depraved of his mouth, blasted, locked up, the list goes on and on...
** Scorpion doesn't last two issues before he's crushed by a Thwomp.
-->'''Thwomp''': Me regret nothing.
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Edgar and the Tetris Bully]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Mason. A few of the villains also qualify.
* ContinuityNod: One of the issues has Mason supposedly being "killed" by [[spoiler:Galactic Petey]]. Cut to New Super Mario, Castle Toad, and Ultra Mario watching Lakitu Eyewitness News and finding out.
-->'''Quickie-la:''' Be glad that ''I'' have cable!
* ContrivedCoincidence: The pipe that Creepy Toad guards just happens to lead to Shiver City, the location of the next Shine Sprite.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Mason attempts to defeat Galactic Petey with Weed-B-Gone. It doesn't work.
-->'''Mason''': It...didn't work? It seemed to work fine on that Bulbasaur earlier...
* DarkerAndEdgier: Gupdoo [[spoiler:dies]] in one issue. There's an entire comic dedicated to [[spoiler:Parakarry telling the Yoshi clan this]]. Don't worry - she's [[spoiler:revived by the Yoshi Elder in attempt to scam her]].
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The jokes become increasingly more sophisticated with each chapter.
* EnemyMine: In the final chapter, [[spoiler:Gupdoo, Edgar, Hoo, and Hee]] convincing random enemies to help them "kick [[spoiler:Gamefreak]]'s rear [[spoiler:for forgetting to lock us up like everyone else]]".
* EvilAllAlong: [[spoiler:Tucayo]].
* IdeaBulb: Occasionally, the emotion bubbles have a lightbulb in them.
* IdiotBall: Most of the final chapter focuses on Mason [[spoiler:suggesting to Gamefreak that he should lock them, the villains, AND the celeberties up like he did with the secondary characters.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Gamefreak''']]: You guys are just a fountain of ideas!
* LargeHam: DEFIANTLY Neptune.
* MadeOfIron: Surprisingly averted. Almost half the villains are defeated in one hit. It's even lampshaded by Solar.
* TheMinionMaster: Neptune can summon "dark" versions of common enemies.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: The final battle.
-->'''Neptune:''' So, Mason, how long do we barrage him?
-->'''Mason:''' Until he becomes a corpse state in which he could barely be considered alive.
-->'''Solar:''' [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Yikes.]]
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: [[spoiler:Gamefreak, despite being the first villain and only being able to turn Mason into Opran Winfrey before he is defeated, turns out to be the true villain.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Solar Blaze and Neptune.
* PowerTrio: They're called the ''three'' Mushketeers for a reason.
* ProWrestlingEpisode: Three of the chapters focus on the trio fighting on the Glitz Lift to get the next Shine Sprite.
* SarcasmMode: This happens a few times.
-->'''Neptune:''' Gee, I hope [[spoiler:Gamefreak]] doesn't give me some pie. That will, uh...surely "kill" me.
-->'''[[spoiler:Gamefreak]]:''' Nice try.
* ShoutOut: And HOW! They're everywhere!
* ThatsAllFolks: The last issue is nothing but white text over blackness [[spoiler:and Gamefreak whining over the destroyed Statue of Liberty]], followed by an appropriate "~fin". The issue is even TITLED this!
* TheUnfought: Scorpion is crushed by a Thwomp before anybody can lay a finger on him.
* VideogameSettings
** AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: The unnamed sewer the Mushketeers have to travel through to get to Shiver City.
-->'''Mason''': Come on, sing with me! ''The sewers, the mighty sewers...''
** BigBoosHaunt: Gupdoo's mansion.
** [[spoiler:DiscOneFinalDungeon]]: Bowser's Castle.
** FloatingContinent: Glitz City.
** GreenHillZone: Mushroom Way, Mushroom Hills, Grass Land, and Spiny Plains.
** TheLostWoods: Boo Woods.
*** [[spoiler:Also doubles as WhereItAllBegan.]]
** PalmtreePanic: Macadamia Beach.
** PlayerHeadquarters: Mason's House.
** ShiftingSandLand: Cotton Candy Desert, which also doubles as LevelAte.
** SlippySlideyIceWorld: Shiver City and Shiver Trail.
*** IcePalace: Crystal Palace.
** UndergroundLevel: Fire Tear Cave.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's never said if the [[spoiler:celebrities were set free]].
