In addition to Jeremy Simms’ original and its sequel

successors to it, some better than others.
A few stick out, though.
This Web animation contains examples of:
- Accidental Murder: The usual victims are Toad, Luigi or Peach.
- Batter Up: The Baseball Boy at the end of the original.
- Bloody Hilarious
- Butt Monkey: EVERYONE.
- The Cameo: Sonic, Kirby, Metroids, Pikachu, Mega Man, the Portal Gun and Tetris Blocks have all shown up.
- Extreme Omnivore: Luigi in the Castle Collab.
- Fastball Special: He's hurled Luigi and Peach at the castle.
- Groin Attack: No more budding!
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Quite a lot.
- Whenever Mario tries to order something to tear down the castle, it invariably turns on him.
- When he tried shooting it with a missile launcher, it bounced back. He tries it three times.
- He tried launching a Poison Mushroom at it. It turned around when it hit the castle.
- Anything projectile tends to bounce back at him, really. Except in the Collab 2 finale.
- Losing Your Head: Mario's head just falls off when Luigi starts streaking.
- Naked People Are Funny: A running gag in the official two.
- Megaton Punch: Luigi asks Mario to destroy the castle. He gets punched into it.
- Nigh Invulnerable: The titular castle. It WAS destroyed in the second Castle Collab.... but then it gets revived by a 1-up mushroom. Mario understandably bluescreens. Interestingly, the castle does get... removed at the end of the second Castle Calamity permanently, but Mario still bluescreens from how Luigi solves the problem.
- Nightmare Face: The castle suddenly gets one in Castle Collab 2. Mario freaks.
- No Kill Like Overkill: The finale of the second Castle Collab.
- Sadist Show
- Slapstick Knows No Gender: Even Peach isn't safe from the brothers' attempts to destroy the castle at all costs.
- Stuff Blowing Up: Whenever Bob-ombs or Bullet Bills are involved.
- Take That, Scrappy!: Nobody’s ever upset if Toad dies. Generally, everyone starts laughing.
- They Killed Kenny Again: Everybody’s died at least twice. Even the castle gets destroyed, though it gets restored at the end of both of the Castle Collabs.
