StacheBros is a series of plush videos based on the Super Mario Bros. franchise that was created in 2009. The channel can be found here.

StacheBros contains examples of:

  • Accidental Kidnapping: In "Our Princess Is In Another Castle", Kamek accidentally kidnaps Rosalina instead of Peach because his glasses haven't been cleaned recently, which gets him chewed out by Bowser.
  • Accidental Misnaming: In "Home Alone", Waluigi refers to Bowser Jr. as Nigel at one point. When Wario is confused by this, Waluigi explains he never bothered to learn the kid's name.
  • Advertisement:
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Mario is much more abrasive than his canon counterpart, what with him constantly quarreling with his brother Luigi, occasionally getting irritated with rescuing Peach, and having a deep hatred for Diddy.
  • All Just a Dream:
    • "Yoshi's Story OF DEATH!!!!" turns out to be a nightmare that Bowser had from eating 1-UPs before bed.
    • "Night Of The Living Goomba" turns out to be one of Mario's dreams inside one of Luigi's dreams inside one of Bowser's nightmares from eating 1-UPs before bed (the reveal of which reuses footage from "Yoshi's Story OF DEATH!!!!").
    • "Toadsworth's Funeral" turns out to be a dream Peach had after passing out from forgetting to take her medication. Apparently, she also said the things she said in her dream out loud in her sleep.
  • Angrish: Lampshaded in "Home Alone" when Waluigi grunts like Harry does in the movie after Bowser Jr. drops a Thwomp on him and Wario. When Wario asks him what he's doing, he explains that he's using made-up words to make it sound like he's swearing, to which Wario tells him to stop.

  • April Fools' Plot: Played With in "Wario's Maypril Fools Day". After chugging an entire bottle of whiskey at an intense party in March, Wario blacks out through the entire month of April. When he asks Waluigi what the date is, he tells him that it's the first of May. However, because Wario's still hungover from the party, he misinterprets it as April Fools' Day and decides to pull pranks on the Mushroom Kingdom.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: In "Night Of The Living Goomba", when Mario and Luigi come across a pile of dead Goombas:
    Luigi: What we are seeing here is quite possibly the worst thing ever! Look what we have done! Forget about killing a lot of Goombas, we've killed hundreds! Thousands!! Millions!!! TENS!!!
    Mario: Um, counting doesn't work that way, but I know!

    [a ball of crumpled up paper hits Luigi, he uncrumples it to reveal...]
    Luigi: Bingo night! No, that couldn't be it. And then, it hit Mario.
    [another ball of crumpled up paper hits Mario]
    Luigi: Friday the 13th!
    • In "Goomba's Revenge", after Goomba ends up getting a chain instead of a gun for killing Mario:
    Goomba: So, now I had to rethink my plan, having the minor setback of dying three times during the process, and then, it hit me! [beat] A knife. [Goomba gets shanked by a knife] So I died.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment:
    • In "Who Killed Toadsworth?", when Toadsworth introduces his guests at his birthday party:
    Toadsworth: Now, as you know, I'm a killer...
    [everyone screams]
    Toadsworth: ...when it comes to throwing parties.
    Everyone: Oh.
    Toadsworth: But that's besides the point. I will murder...
    [everyone gasps]
    Toadsworth: ...your tastebuds when you try my delectable Salisbury steak! (to the camera) I had a lot of fun making this one. Now, [holds up a knife] WITHOUT FURTHER ADO...
    [everyone screams]
    Toadsworth: ...I will cut the first piece of steak.
    Everyone: Oh.
    • In the Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon episode of "Luigi Time!!!", when Luigi tries to talk Toadsworth out of charging him for Mario's de-paperization operation:
    Toadsworth: Look, you two have done a lot for our kingdom, and for that, I truly owe you, so you've got to realize that... I feel no guilt not helping you ever.
    Luigi: You mean it?!
    Toadsworth: That's right!
    Luigi: Well, we're screwed.
    • In "Super Donkey Kong Bros", after Donkey Kong shows up accusing Mario of stealing the Great Banana:
    Donkey Kong: Hey, look, an old man.
    Toadsworth: Oh. My. Gosh. [in an increasingly angry tone] In all my years of living, I have never... [in a joyful tone] HAD SUCH A GREAT IDEA!
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: In "Night Of The Living Goomba", when Mario and Luigi discover a pile of Goomba corpses underground, they feel immense guilt for killing them and Mario wishes they never died. Unfortunately, Mario's wish being granted leads to him and Luigi being chased by a horde of zombified Goombas.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: In "Our Princess Is In Another Castle", Kamek kidnaps Rosalina by mistake and holds her hostage at Bowser's Castle, lying to her that it's a hotel. However, because she's so polite, he's forced to tell her the truth and she responds by blowing up Bowser's Castle.
  • Berserk Button: Stealing the Great Banana is one for Donkey Kong, as Goomba and Toadsworth find out the hard way in "Super Donkey Kong Bros".

  • Cassandra Truth: In "The Curse of Toadsworth Mansion", Peasley doesn't believe Mario and his friends when they tell him that none of them are possessed by the King until the King himself announces his return in Wario's body. None of them are amused by this and they throw him off a cliff for trying to kill them.
  • Comically Missing the Point:
    • In "A StacheBros Christmas Carol", when Bowser Scrooge asks Wario Marley why he's returned as a ghost:
    Wario: I am here to warn you. You still have a chance of escaping my fate!
    Bowser: I'm gonna be fat?!
    Wario: No! The chains! You still have a chance to resist the discomfort! And you're just as fat as I am.
    • In "Episode 2-1 - The Typical Mario Beginning" of "Mario & Luigi! Stache Bros", after Peach gets kidnapped by Bowser:
    Luigi: [scoff] What are we gonna do?
    Mario: Hmm, I don't know, Bowser, the ruler of his own castle, just stole the princess. Wherever could he be?
    Luigi: Hmm. Maybe he's in Canada. I like Canada.
    Mario: [slamming Luigi into a wall] No, Luigi, we're going to Bowser's Castle!
    • In "The Curse Of Toadsworth Mansion", when Peasley first asks who the King is, Mario tells him that they don't know where King Toadstool is. When Peasley clarifies that Toadstool isn't the King he's after, Donkey Kong thinks Peach has two fathers.

  • Cruel Twist Ending:
    • In "Toadsworth's Spontaneous Back Problems", after Donkey Kong fixes Toadsworth's back, Toadsworth goes home to take his ointment, only to find out it has mysteriously disappeared (though in "The Day Super Mario Died", it's revealed that Mario stole it as a prank). And then, his back breaks again.
    • In "Wario's Robbed", Wario thinks Waluigi robbed him of his billion dollars, but it turns out Waluigi was just depositing it all in Gold Toad Bank. Wario is relieved that his money is safe and sound, but then the events of "The Day Super Mario Died" begin with Bowser robbing the bank.

    Mario: What? No, I got pushed off a cliff by Luigi.
    Boo: What, that stupid hill? You couldn't have... oh, no.

And then...he suddenly collapses dead on the floor.
  • Hypocritical Humor: In "Night Of The Living Goomba", when Luigi notices that he and Mario have been killing a lot of Goombas:
    Mario: You would think that Bowser would take a hint and maybe hire better minions to serve on the front lines.
    Luigi: Or at least enhance them or something. Maybe give them some arms. Or a menacing goatee. Steroids can do wonders these days.
    Mario: Are you suggesting they do drugs?
    Luigi: Whoa, whoa, whoa! No! Who do you think I am?! Drugs are bad for you! Luigi frowns upon drugs! Do you have any Mushrooms on you?

How well does it match the trope?
