Mind-blowing Mario, Zelda and Pokemon fan theories

ONM writes: Sometimes the established canon of various videogames just isn't good enough for some people. Is Mario just about saving Peach? Is Pokemon just about innocent battling of cute creatures? Or do these games hide deeper levels of social commentary or disturbing implications> People love to speculate and there are literally hundreds of excellent fan theories floating around out there devoted to some of your favourite Nintendo games, but I've picked out three that I thought were the most fascinating.

3.1 Addendum: Mario is not a plumber, the crappy American television show does not in any way retcon established Mario canon.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't the games refer to him as a plumber? And hasn't Nintendo referred to him as a plumber?

bass4g1987d ago

in donkey kong he was a carpenter and he jumped over wooden barrels but he was also called jumpman at that point. In most other games he's a plumber and he spends his time moving through pipes. He wouldn't be moving through pipes if he wasn't a plumber.

Canary1987d ago

None of the games--the main games, at least--have EVER referred to Mario's occupation.

As for "He wouldn't be moving through pipes if he wasn't a plumber."

I'm not even going to dignify that with a response.

{Miyamoto commented that if he had named Mario "Mr. Video", Mario likely would have "disappeared off the face of the Earth."[6] By Miyamoto's own account, Mario's profession was chosen to fit with the game design. Since Donkey Kong was set on a construction site, Mario was made into a carpenter. When he appeared again in Mario Bros., it was decided he should be a plumber, since a lot of the game is played in underground settings.[10] Mario's character design, particularly his large nose, draws on western influences; once he became a plumber, Miyamoto decided to "put him in New York" and make him Italian,[10] lightheartedly attributing Mario's nationality to his mustache.[11]}

I just see that Mario is a plumber, but on his time off he saves Peach!

Mario actually started as a builder in Donkey Kong but the use of pipes to get from a to b in later games lead him to be known as a plumber. look it up.
Maybe plumbers earn more than builders

You are Red, and you may not be so good. In the game, you fight Blue a bunch of times right? At the beginning he has a Rattata. You fight him some more, and another time he uses a Raticate (the evolved Rattata) Then, when you fight him at the end, no Raticate. People speculate that you killed his Raticate when you fought him. Which is really sad. haha.

It's safe to say Red and Blue are just rivals.

blue fights you and the pokemion rule is if there eyes meet yours you fight yet they spin you around

They're fun Nintendo games. And Mario HAS no canon.

Wni01988d ago

This just in, vague plots are easy to elaborate on.

BosSSyndrome1988d ago

Well lakitu was filming you in Mario 64...

I was expecting them to talk about Pokémon as slaves as usual.

Never thought about the rival thing that way. But even still, he was a spoiled punk. Its no wonder his grandpa showed him no sympathy when he lost the title.
