YMMV: With Big Shells and Wings
  • Ass Pull: Peach getting "raped" in chapter 18. It isn't until sixteen chapters later that we find out that a random koopatrol used her Sneaky Parasol and disguised himself as her while she hid under the bed. Twink flat-out lampshades this trope.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment:
    • Chapters 35 and 36. Mario and his friends enter a series of vortexes that transport them to various stages and mini-games that the Mario Bros. have been to in previous adventures. Um, okay then.
    • F.L.U.D.D.'s random appearance in chapter 24. Not only is it not explained, but as soon as the chapter ends, F.L.U.D.D. is never mentioned again.
  • Complete Monster: Dracolin, a sadistic dragon who enjoys burning, torturing, devouring, and tormenting others just because it's fun. Plus he likes grossing out others with childish scatological humor. What's mostly disturbing about Dracolin is that he takes pleasure in scaring little Yoshi children, almost to a point where he comes across as a pedophile. He even crushes one of them to death and then brags to the dead Yoshi's friends how wonderful it felt killing her. To top all that off, it's implied more than once that Dracolin has a Fetish for crushing small creatures.
  • It Gets Better: The story starts out as a comical fanfic suited for young teenagers. But the further along it goes, the darker it becomes and the more serious the plot is. Some of the tasteless jokes also begin to go away as the story progresses, and many characters start to go through seriously needed Character Development. By the time chapter 37 comes around, the story arguably starts Growing the Beard.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Trowzer arguably crossed it multiple times, but it wasn't until he murdered Yellow that he blew away his chances at redemption.
    • Shannon killing Steve just because he kept belittling him with name calling.
    • Dracolin stomping a Yoshi kid to death and then bragging about it to the other terrified Yoshi kids.
    • The Koopa Bros. inadvertently crossed it when they blew up the defense facility that protected Yoshi's Island. That means they're indirectly responsible for the massacre that Trowzer sanctioned there.
    • If Marcus didn't cross the MEH when he executed Bosley right in front of Eddard, then he definitely crossed it when he killed Eddard shortly afterwards.
  • Squick:
    • The last scene in chapter 20, which more than likely left the readers gagging.
    • Larry's death, especially since the author went into horrific detail.
