  • Sneeze of Doom: In part one's driving scene, right when Mario tries to reassure Luigi he'll be alright. Luigi then sneezes loudly, which causes Mario to swerve and almost hit a car.
    • Heck, it's gotten to the point where it sucks away every bit of strength he has when he does.

How well does it match the trope?
