Super Mario Bros. Movie Trailer: The Biggest Nintendo Easter Eggs and Callbacks

0 18

These minions include the Koopas, Goombas, Hammer Bros., Bob-Ombs, and Piranha Plants in one shot, while Bloopers and Bullet Bills make appearances elsewhere. Shy Guys are in there, though they were introduced in Doki Doki Panic and its U.S. reskin Super Mario Bros. 2. While that game has mostly been ignored by sequels, the Shy Guys have become a staple of the Mario mythos.

As you might expect, there are plenty of references to platforming. What looks to be an obstacle course to train Mario feels like something out of Super Mario Maker, complete with fire bars (big faves in that sandbox game) as well as cannons. Here, the Piranha Plants look to be fake, but the Bullet Bills are very real. Also real are those bullshit donut platforms that fall down a second after you jump on one.

Fire Flowers are shown off, and specifically their effect on Peach. While Peach has been able to wield Fire Flowers in Mario Kart and Smash Bros. games, the only time she has been transformed to the red and white palette by the power up is Super Mario 3D World.

Speaking of the Princess, Peach’s role seems to be more of a mentor than a damsel in distress, which is a fun subversion. Instead, it seems scaredy-cat Luigi plays the damsel, which is just perfect.

Meanwhile, the Toads look over a map of the various lands in the film, and it looks just like your typical Mario game map marking all the different levels. While desert lands are normal to find in Mario games, it could also be a reference to Sarasaland, introduced in Super Mario Land. It’s an Egypt-themed realm and ruled over by Princess Daisy, who Luigi will surely get to know down the line.

During the shot of Bowser’s minions, it looks like there are a couple Sledge Brothers in there. They at least seem bigger than your usual Hammer Brothers.
