Mario’s WORST Vacation Wasn’t Super Mario Sunshine…

Mario’s WORST Vacation Wasn’t Super Mario Sunshine…


When I first started YouTube, I really didn’t
know what I wanted to do, but I always brainstormed lots of different ideas. One in particular was the best video game
vacation spots, which later evolved into my Pixel Portals series. Partially because Mario dominated some of
the best places that came to mind for vacation spots. Isle Delfino took the cake for some of my
favorite areas – and honestly, even when traveling I found myself relaxing on beaches and listening
to the game’s soundtrack. With Odyssey’s release this past year, my
scope for amazing areas got even bigger. However, not every vacation destination in
the Mushroom World appears to be grand. For those who watched my previous video about
Mario being ejected from a plane above Egypt, you’re in for another grim tale. Look away, as Limony Snicker would say. Because nothing but misfortune waits for Mario
and friends on this devilish trip. We’re diving back into the world of Club
Nintendo again, and always a big thank you to the team over at Opentrain for their translation
efforts. We’re jumping aboard the horrific airline
KoopAir for a second time in Super Mario: Rest? No, Thanks! Our comic begins with Mario and friends all
traveling through an airport together. Their suitcases are packed, and they are heading
on a well-deserved vacation. Soon after Peach becomes a little worried
and asks Mario if it was wise to book the cheapest vacation available. Mario, being the cheapskate that he apparently
is, reaffirms that everything is going to be fine! That was mistake number one, Mario. Mario approaches the check in counter and
at this point second guesses himself based on how weird it looks. The steward is sleeping at the desk when he
suddenly awakes and make it known that he’s practically blind. Mario and friends then place their luggage
on the conveyer as the comic hints that “nothing should happen to them”. Our tale only grows more grim though… In the next panel we see an employee who is
an ape just tossing the luggage into a cart carelessly. Soon after Peach realizes that the old crappy
jet across the runway is their plane, and on top of that, they have to walk across the
entire runway because there is no bus to take them there. As they approach the plane, it becomes very
clear that the plane is barely functional. Mario comments “Oh well, they always come
down” which is probably the worst mindset to have about this kind of thing. Although I guess since he was thrown out of
this same airline above Egypt and survived, maybe the idea of a plane crash doesn’t
scare him somehow. Mario and friends soon encounter the plane’s
stewardess who calls everyone slackers and tells them to hurry on the airline. I think this character is supposed to be a
disguised Wendy Koopa, but if you know the actual reference, drop it in a comment below. Once everyone is seated on the plane, our
squad of friends begins to grow worried. Luigi looks like he’s about to have a mental
breakdown at how awful the interior of the plane looks, and Peach claims that her and
Mario are going to have to talk later. Mario then glances out the window of the plane
to see the blind person from before being dragged to the plane. Apparently they are the pilot. Mario, as dense as he is in this comic, is
excited by the idea of having a plane thats falling apart, having a blind pilot, and a
monster for a stewardess. The plane then immediately takes off heading
towards its destination – which is apparently a place called Koopabiza. However, Ludwig, one of the Koopalings, screams
that maintenance on the jet wasn’t even done yet despite it taking off. Inside, the stewardess is tossing pizzas to
everyone on board claiming that she’s worked on the airline for 40 years. Surprisingly, the pizzas aren’t poisoned
or old – but that doesn’t mean our tale doesn’t get darker. The plane lands fine, but unfortunately everyone’s
luggage is completely smashed. Luigi quickly questions the cheap nature of
his brother as he points to a decrepit bus with Wario hanging around outside of it. Apparently they’re heading to the Gumba
Royal Hotel, but Peach is extremely cautious about boarding the bus. When they get there though, Mario tries to
reaffirm to his friends that this place doesn’t look half bad. Peach decides to give Mario another chance
now that they’ve arrived – but she has no idea what horrors await her inside that door
she’s about to open. In fact, the door falls apart the second she
grabs the handle. Mario of course can’t explain this, but
they head to the registration counter regardless. Bowser is waiting for them there and tells
them they don’t have any reservations of record, and the only room they have is the
presidential suite – which is probably a huge unexpected expense. Morton Koopa quickly leads the group to their
room, and Mario is shocked to see that the room is a complete mess and super small. Mario grows uneasy himself finally when he
realizes that the bathroom is full of vacationing roaches. Peach runs out of the room screaming that
she will not stay here, as Yoshi tries to calm her down saying that a swim would do
her good. After a 30 minute walk through the scorching
heat, Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi arrive at the quote unquote beach. It looks like Peach didn’t come with them,
but can we take a moment to appreciate this smug Yoshi? Classy. The trio enters the water but it’s only
up to their knees and it looks like it doesn’t get any deeper. Luigi complains saying he actually wanted
to go swimming, so maybe they should check out the hotel pool. Which, of course, looks like the aftermath
of a zombie apocalypse. Mario finally gets fed up and says he’s
going to go complain to management because this place is a total pigsty. However, judging by the next panel, looks
like his efforts were in vain. The friends are trying to sleep when suddenly
a deafening sound erupts from below them as music notes flow from the floor. Luigi yells for Mario to do something while
Mario tries to keep his cool on his relaxing vacation. The floor begins to crack as well. Before he can do anything, the floor gives
way and everyone begins to fall. They land on a dance floor directly below
them as a midnight disco is going on. Bowser and the Koopalings appear to be throwing
a party with other guests. Seeing as they landed in the middle of the
dance floor, I’m just going to assume someone got crushed. The four friends sprint out of the hotel wanting
nothing to do with it anymore – just before the hotel itself caved in on itself destroying
everything. Which is actually kinda grim to think about… There was like tons of people in there. Meanwhile, back home, we see Mario and friends
relaxing on what appears to be a tropical beach… But in reality, they are on top of a building
in the city with a tropical backdrop behind them. I mean, whatever floats your boat I guess. If you can’t go to the beach, bring the
beach to you! I actually really enjoyed the comic simply
because it contrasted my views of the Mushroom world a ton. I’ve always idolized 3D Mario environments
for being really great and picturesque, and truthfully places in Super Mario Sunshine
made the kid in me want to travel the world. So knowing the opposite of that occurred 9
years before Super Mario Sunshine’s release is kind of neat. I mean, this comic is completely bizarre,
but it would have been something I certainly would have appreciated back in the 90’s. Mario’s come quite a long ways. But now that I’ve dumped this vacation bomb
on all of you, I’d love to know what you think. Catch anything in the comic I didn’t? General thoughts about it? Share them in the comments below! And with that… Thanks for tuning in to this terrible tale
of vacation woe! If you aren’t subscribed yet, why don’t
you subscribe now so you can stay up to date with all my content? I’d certainly appreciate the support! Thanks for watching guys and gals, and until
my next video – cheers!

  1. I think i get the stewardess reference. In the mario anime movie, Peach asked bowser to transform into a couple of things before transforming into a teddy bear as an escape opportunity. She asks him to transform into Buchimonta. I think this Buchimonta is the stewardess.
