Part of the Nintendo Independent Wiki Alliance (NIWA) and popular fansite for all things Super Mario Bros., the Super Mario Wiki is, well, a Mario encyclopedia. It currently hosts over 12,000+ articles and an extremely popular forum, a place where sprite comics thrive. Also famous for hosting The Three Mushketeers.
The wiki was founded in 2005 by Porplemontage, and has over 1,000 users, some great, some not-so-great.
The Super Mario Wiki contains examples of:
- April Fools' Day:
- In 2014 and 2015, the wiki featured strange, but true, facts about the Mario universe out of context.
- In 2013, the wiki put up an article about a Darker and Edgier FPS reboot of the series, titled simply "Mario". As over-the-top as it was, it apparently managed to fool several users.
- In 2015, the wiki featured a line from the infamous Gaming in the Clinton Years review of Donkey Kong Country:Donkey Kong Country is truly perfect. If you do not get this amazing new generation of Donkey Kong madness, you are stupid. Yes, we know it's insulting, but that's also the truth. If you're a true video game fan, you will not hesitate in the slightest bit to buy this piece of gaming history.
- Department of Redundancy Department: The source of some jokes.
