The workweek is nearly over, which means it's time again to rehash the delightful, if discontinuous, mythology of the Mushroom Kingdom and its many colorful characters. Last week
we had you grinding the gears of mini-boss semantics while ogling the usual gallery-candy, and today we want to continue in a similar vein. But let's up the ante, shall we? Who are the real
bosses Mario has battled? No more of this egg-spitting mediocrity
and three-hit nonsense
. Half-assed baddies, step aside.
The road has been long for Mario, and each of his victories have been marked with the defeat of a substantial villain, restoring order to various kingdoms and rescuing their fair and easily kidnapped damsels. The extended Koopa Troop family has long been a threat to the 'stache
, but who are these other punitive powers that precede the credit screens? Let's take a gander at final bosses in a new gallery
rife with heavyweight evildoing.
