100 Facts about Mario
As a young child, I once made a “100 Facts about Mario” list where I at least attempted to compile every fact I thought I knew about Mario’s character and franchise. As it turns out, I was just too young to accomplish my so-called goal, so I just littered the list with blatant opinions and unnecessary glib and... well, you get the idea. Now that I’m grown up and truly know everything there is to know about the “Mario” franchise, I can make this list with complete confidence. And what better time than the 30th anniversary of the game that made him a household name?
1. Mario and Luigi’s last names are anonymous, and do not relate to the last name “Mario” that was used on the brothers in sources like the critically-reviled 1993 live action film and Prima Games’ guidebooks.
2. Despite his cowardly tendencies, Luigi has proven heroic enough to save Mario on a few occasions ― in “Luigi&

TANSMSE: Partial List of Episodes
Season 1
Episode 1: "The Legend: Setting the Stage"
Note: This episode already appears in comic form in these deviations.
After the full version of the show's opening theme sequence is played, we see the episode's title card, where Mario shouts "Welcome to my world!" to the viewer, accompanied by a triumphant-sounding, jazzy remix of the "Game Over" theme from "Super Mario Bros." Then Mario then proceeds to narrate the episode setting the groundwork for all subsequent episodes of the series.
Mario first introduces us to the fantasy-filled Mushroom World, and its central nation, the Mushroom Kingdom.

That is one very brilliant, amazing, and interesting deviation! Kyle, you've done an awesome job with this piece! What a great idea you...

This picture reminds me of the days when I was an obsessed video gamer ― before I outgrew that medium upon realizing it was negatively affecting my attention span and sociability. Mario was my childhood idol, and through his countless adventures and sporting competitions, he taught me that there are lots of unfortunate ways to die, but you can avoid them if you stay strong in the midst of the biggest struggles and tests.
This tribute to the character is very clever, creative, attractive, and innovative. In fact, though this was created to commemorate his 25th, now over 30 years have passed since the game that defined Mario and made him a household name. Imagine the kinds of awards Mario would receive if there were to be a special ceremony celebrating his services to the Mushroom Kingdom! In addition to the Medal of Honor and commander membership in the Legion of Merit, he'd receive a LOT of Purple Hearts given all the lives he's lost for the sake of defending the land. And the first of these Purple Hearts would be a big one if given for all the hammer barrages and fire breath shots he's had to take from Bowser alone!
This picture is full of the glorious hilarity and beautiful artistry that typifies a lot of your "Mario"-related work, including the comic series you've based on the franchise. And it does an extraordinarily good job of celebrating all the kinds of unfortunate deaths the gaming world's most famous hero has had to suffer.
If the Guinness Book of World Records' gaming edition had a record for "widest variety of deaths in a video game franchise," Mario would certainly take the cake. And you see here... this picture is definitely one worth looking (and laughing) at! Great work, Bourgy! You deserve 25 stars from me!
With tons of Deviant Art users telling the stories of their experiences on the site in celebration of its 14th birthday... I bet now is the time for me to talk about my experiences with DA, as well.

I have a great artistic talent (or so I proclaim myself to have), and I've been drawing ever since I was just a little kid. But it wasn't until my 19th birthday that I discovered DA. In fact, it was my artistic talent and experiences that called me to join this site, and I'm proud to have been here for three years. For someone who's been drawing since his youth, I had to start somewhere, just like all the rest of us... but quite enough about that. I'm the kind of person who likes to keep much of his private life, shall I say, reserved.

Meanwhile, in all the time I've spent on DA, I've come to appreciate the artistic quality of the works of nearly every deviant in this community, but there is room for exceptions. I see that this site does contain a number of works that are directly copied from copyrighted sources (such as copyrighted official artworks, photo-manipulation, screen captures, etc. -- all of which I see as violations of the ToS), and even drawings that look sketchy, or unimaginative, or like they were made in kindergarten art time. In fact, I don't appreciate these types of drawings... I only appreciate DA submissions that their artists spent considerable time and effort on. Again, I do not condone copyright infringement or lack of imagination.

My current art style takes its influences predominantly from Western animation and comics. When I first started uploading work to DA, my art style had some aspects influenced by anime, but I've since diluted those considerably. I can't claim any specific work as an influence on my art style. But that doesn't matter; what matters is that I like my current style a lot better than the previous versions.

Born in Savannah, Georgia in the early 1990s, I am the son of a civil engineer and a former registered nurse. I have lived in my current hometown of Cary, North Carolina since 1994.
I have a versatile personality which allows me to possess many different interests in many different topics and people. I claim that I possess a great degree of intelligence, and I prove to be very literate -- I am able to read and write proficiently, and though my primary language is English, I speak several foreign languages as well. I show a diverse interest in studying, and though I may not have had a proper education (I was taught only in a couple of primary schools, an elementary school, and then I was homeschooled for a few years), I love to show a diverse interest in the world around me.
I possess a great artistic talent, and an art style that has cartoonish characteristics with a touch of realism. I hate anything that is considered immoral, have zero tolerance for swearing or curses, and will stand no nonsense whatsoever. I despise much of the changes that have occurred in the world over the past 10 years, and I think that history would have been much better without such changes.
I am a born-again Christian (though not baptized), and I attend church and Sunday school regularly. My father once worked as a deacon.

Because their works seem to be horribly disrespectful of Nintendo's vision for that series.
