Machinima: Supermarioglitchy4s Super Mario 64 Bloopers
Toad: yeah well that's life

supermarioglitchy4 is an Australian YouTube user most famous for his "Super Mario 64 Bloopers" series, one of many on the site, and as of April 2014 has over 100,000 subscribers. The series chronicles the misadventures of Mario, his brother Luigi, and a plethora of Original Characters based off of other Mario 64-video making users.

The stories are nonsensical, and there are quite a few spelling and grammar errors... but it's all part of the charm.

Now has a Characters page.

This series provides examples of:

  • A Day in the Limelight: A lot of these bloopers are this, actually:
    • Luigi got one in "Luigi and the Haunted Mansion", followed by "A Lost Luigi" about a year and a half later.
      • More recently for Luigi: the 2013 Halloween special "Luigi's Retarded Mansion".
    • SMG3 got many: "SMG3's Plan to Destroy SMG4 Cause He Felt Like It", "Join the Evil Side", and "Two Evil Friends", among others.
  • Affably Evil: Bowser, starting from "Hotel Mario".
  • All Just a Dream: In "A Trip to Teletubbie Land", Mario has a nasty accident while fixing the castle pipes and ends up in a land full of Teletubbies. At the end, it was revealed to be dream, but the pipes weren't fixed yet.
  • all lowercase letters: All text is written like this, except when a character is voicing strong emotion.
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: A man is seen holding a "!raeN si dnE ehT" at one point. He actually says it like so as well, and X dismisses him: "I don't want your Japanese crap."
  • Ambiguously Gay: A lot of characters have such moments, but Toad, Luigi, Bowser (following his Heel-Face Turn) and Mario stand out.
    • Every Mook in Operation G.A.Y was a sprite of Luigi, some of them wearing a Princess Peach dress.
  • Art Shift: Done deliberately whenever a character is doing something not possible in Super Mario 64, where Garry's Mod models are used instead.
    • Possibly the biggest examples are in "Retard Karts 101", where because of the lack of Garry's Mod models done in SM64 style, Luigi shifts from being a recolor of Mario to a black-eyed plush which resembles Luigi's colors in the Mario canon more closely. This is only excluded during closeups of Luigi's front side, where he returns to SM64 Luigi.
      • Peach, Wario, and Waluigi after he goes buff swap to their modern counterparts when driving their karts, while Wario returns to a Mario Party model in front-angle closeups.
  • Asian Speekee Engrish: the Japanese islander later revealed to be SMG3's henchman when SMG4 meets him a second time in "Super Happy Magical Fun Fun Island".
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: A giant Mario sieges the castle in "Scatman's Revenge".
    • Mario himself becomes this in "Free Lunch for Mario" after eating a Mega Mushroom.
    • And again in "A SM64 Fairytale" to fight Bowser, who has also become giant.
  • Attempted Rape: A large Boo in "Luigi's Retarted Mansion" upon it's first glimpse of Luigi's butt. Thankfully Luigi is pulled out of the room before the Boo reaches him.
  • Ax-Crazy: Enzo in "Birthday Freakout".
  • Baleful Polymorph: Mario once ate a strange mushroom that turned him into a banana, which became pretty nasty once Donkey Kong happened upon him.
  • Berserk Button: If Mario ever hears you trash talk about spaghetti...
  • Bestiality Is Depraved: Mario seems to have a thing for Minecraft pigs, as shown in "Mineswap".
  • Big Damn Heroes: The policeman in "Birthday Freakout", followed in the next episode (Luigi's Retarded Mansion) with Dr. Robotnik saving Luigi from a possessed chair.
    • In "Mushroom Wars", to save R2-D2 from a flock of Teletubbies, Mario winds up almost attacked by them until SMG4note  barges into action and saves Mario.
  • Big Eater: Mario has been shown to scarf down 35 bowls of spaghetti in exactly five seconds.
  • Big "NO!": SMG4 when he's about to be squished by Gourmet Guy in "Mini Italians".
  • Blatant Lies: Mario claims to have never used Scatman John's music in his life.
  • Body Horror: While certainly not Squick levels and just Played for Laughs, Toad's "dance" has his head detaching and rotating 90 degrees clockwise reattaching on it's side, and his limbs merging into his body.
  • Brown Note: Mario is forcefully clad in rainbow clothes in "Scatman's Revenge" that cause weird things to happen to anyone who sees him.
  • Butt Monkey: Of all the characters in the series, Toad gets hit the worst, especially in episodes that only feature Luigi the residential Chew Toy as an one-off background character.
  • The Cameo: Harry Potter appears briefly before getting run over by a tank.
  • The Chew Toy: Luigi and Toad, though Luigi is usually the one being mistreated by the cast.
  • Christmas Episode: Supermarioglitchy4 made two of these: one for 2011, and one for 2012.
  • Chroma Key: Whenever a scene is depicted using anything other than a Super Mario 64 environment (either one in vanilla SM64 or a ROM hack) such as Minecraft or Garry's Mod, a green screen will be used to represent the characters.
  • Cloud Cuckooland: Peach's castle and pretty much everywhere else as well.
  • Competition Freak: SMG4 in "The Blooper Competition".
  • Courtroom Episode: "Spaghetti Law", wherein Mario and SMG4 end up getting spaghetti banned in the Mushroom Kingdom. They get it reversed in the end, but also end up with 20 years of community service.
  • Cue the Rain: Lampshaded in "Scatman's Revenge":
    Mario: Oh great, the weather's is being a troll again. Yeah, well I like water! Beat that!!!
  • Cutaway Gag: Frequently.
  • The Ditz: Mario and Bowser frequently fall into this.
  • Driven to Madness: Enzo, the Original Character featured in "Birthday Freakout", is driven to killing Mario after he destroys Peach's Castle, where he was having his birthday party.

  • Enfant Terrible: Baby Mario (or Pepsi as Mario calls him) in "The Babysitters".
    • His monster form made a reappearance in "The Monster".

  • Everything Trying to Kill You: When Mario, SMG4, and X all become Incredible Shrinking Men in "Mini Italians", they find out the hard way that life is hard when one is the size of an ant.
  • False Reassurance: "What do you have to lose? Besides your life."

  • Fantastic Racism: Implied by Bowser when Mario tries to find a way to praise Steve in "Birthday Freakout".
  • Fat Comic Relief: Mario and (if he's around) Gourmet Guy.
  • Flashback Cut: Done with the numerous times Mario invokes Scatman John's music in "scatman's Revenge".
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: After examining his cursed clothes' effects on the characters, Mario asks the viewers if they still love him... and then the video drops in quality and gets static playing over it. Oddly, Mario is aware of this.
    "oh great now I'm all grainy"
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Done between Mario and SMG4 in "The Swap"... and the latter is applying for a job. Hilarity Ensues, unsurprisingly.
    • This isn't the first time this happened in the series though. "Switcheroooveralls" had a similar plot.
    • Done again with Mario and Steve in "Mineswap", where Mario becomes a Minecraft character and Steve (aside form getting lighter skin) a Super Mario 64 character. Steve seems quite happy with the swap, while Mario gets very frustrated (such as not being able to turn the knobs on doors with his blocky hands and destroying toilets). They fail to get it reversed in the end.
  • Fish Eyes
  • Funny Background Event: While Mario and Luigi discuss spaghetti in one blooper, Toad is seen burning in the background.
    • The plane scene in "Super Happy Magical Fun Fun Island", featuring cameos of a Luigi plush, a dead Teletubby, and a small glimpse of Pikachu.

  • Go Karting with Bowser: Or rather, cooking with Bowser.

  • Halloween Episode: Just like the Christmas Episode trope mentioned above, Supermarioglitchy4 has made one for every year starting from 2011.

  • Heel-Face Turn: Implied to have happened with Bowser, as his own minions threw him out of his castle, forcing him to live with the Mario Bros.
    Bowser: see it's a funny story why i'm here… my troops sorta kicked me out of the whole evil thing so now i live here
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: The plot of "Mini Italians" revolves around Mario, SMG4, and X all eating a strange mushroom that shrinks them.

  • Logging Onto The Fourth Wall: Mario's YouTube account, shown in the aptly-named "Youtube Mario?", actually exists.
  • Long-Lost Relative: SMG4's long lost "brother", Superluigiglitchy4 (SLG4), in "Sup' Bro?" Later in the blooper though, he's revealed to actually work for SMG3.
  • Loud of War: Scatman John's ghost and Mario do this in "Scatman's Revenge".
  • Love Potion: Mario and Luigi used this on Peach and Daisy in "Awkward Weddings".
    • And again in "Peachosal Love", but without Luigi or Daisy involved.
  • The Mafia: The Mushroom Mafia & the Fire Flower Mafia. Mario is forced to work for the former in one blooper, with one of his tasks being to invade the latter.
  • Magical Land: Apparently the land in "The Land That Never Was", because there is no exit... until Mario found one.
    • It even makes a return in "Hide and Seek".

  • Minus World: "The Glitch" causes the castle to become this.

    • SMG4 loses his head to a intoxicated Mario in "Free Lunch for Mario".
    • For a short time in "Mushroom Wars"' first part, L-3Ginote  loses his head in the jet crash next to Mario's farm. He retrieves it eventually.
  • Oh Crap: Frequently; for one example, Mario freaks out when he sees the giant clone of himself running towards the castle in "Scatman's Revenge".
  • The Olympics: "Mario at the Olympic Games".
  • Only Sane Man: Starman3. While he does have his moments, he is the one that has the least amount of unsafe plans.
  • Opening Scroll: In line of it being a Star Wars parody, "Mushroom Wars" does this. It ends rather quickly.
  • Operation Blank: "Operation G.A.Y."
  • Palette Swap: Almost every Original Character is a recolor of Mario. Even his own brother Luigi suffers the same fate, despite there existing customized and playable Luigi models in select Super Mario 64 ROM hacks.
    • Eventually this would be lampshaded in "The Mario Parable" with the narrator pointing out how everyone looks exactly like Mario.
    • There are also a couple of Peach recolors present, mostly to colorize her like Daisy. However they are not as common, nor were they brought up in the above-mentinoed lampshading.
    • Averted with Wario and Waluigi; previously they played this trope straight, but starting from "The Wacky Wario Bros", they use green-screened models from the Mario Party series.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Mario and Bowser wear Toad hats in "A Fungus Among us" to get into Peach's castle after it's raided by Toads. At first it works, even after the cap falls off Mario in his initial visit of the invaded castle. Only after it falls of a second time does the disguise fail.
  • President Evil: Toad when he becomes president for a day in "President Toad Washington"
  • Reference Overdosed: Among others, "Scatman's Revenge" references The Three Little Pigs, King Kong, and has a cameo by an Arwing.
  • Revenge: The main plot of "Scatman's Revenge".
  • Rule of Three: The Flashback Cut in "Scatman's Revenge".
  • Running Gag: The old man.
  • Screwball Serum: The cursed clothes Mario unwittingly wears in "Scatman's Revenge" end up causing strange things to happen to anyone who sees them.
  • Self-Destruct Mechanism: SMG3's hidden base on the "Super Happy Magical Fun Fun Island" has one. Everyone survives thanks to SMG3's mecha being explosion-proof.
  • Send in the Clones: Mario makes hundreds of clones of himself in "Clone o' Mario".
  • Shirtless Scene: Waluigi in "Retard Karts 101".
  • Shout-Out: Mario once won a million coins in a lottery.
  • Something Else Also Rises: In "Mushroom Wars Part 1", upon hearing about Vader dancing on the Princess naked, Mario's lightsaber (which is being held just right) shoots out.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: The attack of the giant Mario is set to a Scatman John song.
  • Stock Scream: The Wilhelm scream shows up several times:
    • Mario launching a Lightsaber-weilding Teletubbie in "A Trip to Teletubbie Land".
    • Mario when he kicks out the pilot in "Super Happy Magical Fun Fun Island".
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Quite often. A Running Gag involves characters blowing up out of shock or frustration.

  • Tempting Fate:
    Mario: trees if you hate me disapear
    the trees disappear
    Mario: ...wow
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Luigi dies a lot in this series.
  • Time Stands Still: The Wizard in "a SM64 Fairytale"
  • Time Travel Episode: "Time Travel Tells" and "Castle Jumping = Time Travelling = Zombies"
  • Toilet Humor
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Mario loves spaghetti (or as the series spells it, "sphagetti"). His extreme love for it is often shown in situations where Mario does not want to be part of... and then whoever wants him to come with them (SMG4 in most cases) tells them that spaghetti is in danger and Mario joins along.
    • It's also shown by Mario's sheer amount of anger when anyone insults spaghetti.
    • If "Birthday Freakout" is any indication, Steve sure loves to dine on cake.
  • Trapped in TV Land: Mario once had to fix the pipes in Peach's Castle and ended up having a bad accident that lead him to a land full of Teletubbies. Turns out at the end that it was All Just a Dream.
  • Unexplained Recovery: If someone loses their head or legs, expect them to be completely restored in the following scene.
  • Unfinished Business: The ghost of Scatman John enacts his revenge on Mario in "Scatman's Revenge".
  • Visual Pun: A fridge is seen running away in "Mini Italians".
  • The Voiceless: Though he will make short verbal phrases and other sound effects, Steve never gets any on-screen dialogue.
  • Wacky Racing: "Retard Karts 101", takes this trope Up to Eleven.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: The giant Mario from "Scatman's Revenge" dies from "nerdy numbers".
  • What Is This, X?: When Mario's Brown Note clothes send Bowser bouncing about:
    "what is bowser a ball"
  • Zombie Apocalypse: When Mario ended up travelling 10,000 years into the future in "Castle Jumping = Time Travelling = Zombies", his future self used his time machine to get the present Mario back to his own time, but an accident sets the setting on the machine to "random". They end up in the year 2075, the year of the zombie apocalypse. With the help of X, the zombies were countered.
    • The Halloween episode of 2011 has one of these.
