It's-a Mario World: Persistent Foes


Today is Thursday, which means we can't stop appending the letter 'A' to our contractions, even though we know it's-a trite way to cue Charles Martinet's voice acting. But now that we've triggered your Mario alarm, we would like to welcome you back to Wii Fanboy's weekly feature dedicated to our triple-jumping hero. Now that the E3 2008 complaints celebrations have begun to subside, we can return to our regularly scheduled fanboy-ism. This week we present you with a new gallery cataloguing the oft-encountered enemies of the Mushroom Kingdom, complete with additional discourse specialized for the Super Mario aficionado!

Where else can you find unmistakable goombas, fire-breathing piranha plants and rampant anthropomorphism all in one game? Nowhere. Now hurry along to the gallery where you'll feel an elating sense of deja-vu as you browse classic baddies, and be sure to check back here next week when we spotlight the unusual and underrated foes of Mario's adventures.

It's-a Mario World is a weekly feature in which the ubiquity of Nintendo's flagship character is celebrated: We'll incessantly ruminate about mustache wax, debate the curious whereabouts of the princess and covet the luminous power stars strewn about the galaxy. Check back here every Thursday to find out what strange and wonderful thing has got us tipping our caps.
