When you think of Mario video games, what images come to mind?

I want to make sure I’m not overlooking anything iconic for a collage I’m putting together.

@filmfann Thanks!

So far I’ve got:
Green pipes
Yellow ? blocks
Goombas, Koopas
Red mushrooms
Stars, coins
Boo
Piranha plants
And obviously Mario himself, and Luigi/Yoshi/Princess Peach/Bowser

Anything else?

Turtle troopers.
Is that what they’re called? Those little half turtle, half duck looking things.

@Mariah – I’d loved to see the final product! I’m inspired to make my own collage of video game icons.

Whenever I hear/see Mario I’m always thinking of Mario kart and a bomb coming from your back :) Only those who played know what I’m talking about.

[nerd] @Michael_Huntington the asshole in the clouds is named Lakitu. The red spiky shit he throws are called spineys. [/nerd]

Mushrooms and Bowzer… and the unlimited 1-ups from the level 3 trick

That jump you can make if you time it just right that gets you bonus points when you touch the flag.

Additional images: red coins, Shy Guys (I have a fondness for them), hammers, the various suits from Super Mario Brothers 3 (especially the Tanuki Suit), and I would add a Luma from Super Mario Galaxy because it would be neat to showcase icons from Mario games across the decades.

My son mentions “Bullet Bill”.
As a matter of fact, this site looks like it might have a lot of things you could use.

I think of how in some of the normal on land stages, if you fall in a pool of water, you die…yet, there’s entire underwater levels. O_o

But yeah, Mario rocks. I also think of shrooms, funny enemies…and shyguy!

Cmon, this guy rocks, he’s wearing a mask! He’s totally a serial killer.

@Symbeline Shyguys are some of my favorite enemies in any of the Mario games. Check out this alternative version of a shy guy.

No one mentioned Luigi? Or the opposite one… What’s his name?

TexasDude's avatar

@talljasperman Waluigi and Wario?

cockswain's avatar

Man, I never noticed the clouds and bushes either. That bothers me for some reason. Like I looked at the Ark.

Chain chomp. Climbing vines. Clouds. The floating, horizontal ladders, hammer bros.
