[[WMG: The final battle]]
* So...you know the part where [[spoiler: all the Game & Watches form a giant octopus and start attacking everyone from the roof of the building]]? Why is it that instead of fighting or running away, everybody just stands there staring like idiots while [[spoiler: The Game & Watches brutally kill them off one by one]]? And even when their allies begin dropping like flies around them, what do they do? They [[ThisIsSparta Just. Stand. There.]] TooDumbToLive doesn't even begin to describe it...
** [[spoiler: After the first couple, everyone who gets stabbed is running away. What were you watching?]]
** Some do. But when Mario readies his big attack, you can see plenty more people just standing there. Dynamic staging isn't this series' strong suit.
Yes, it makes sense, but I felt a bit anti-climatic.
* In a series ''this'' melodramatic, were you really expecting anything short of a massive ShootTheShaggyDog ending? It wouldn't have fit with the mood of the story at all if [[spoiler: she and Mario and Luigi all had a happy ending.]] Bad stuff happens, people die, innocence is stained and lost over time. What better way to illustrate this is there than killing off [[spoiler: the one symbol of order and idealism that the Mushroom Kingdom had?]]
