Many moons ago, the anti-Mario, anti-Bowser was born. He was evil and greedy, but in a way that differed from the King Koopa. Contrary to Mario's primary villain, the Mushroom Kingdom didn't mean much to him. No, this man was after something shinier: gold coins, gold blocks, gold anything.
Of course, his greed was barely visible in his original state. As the star of a couple Game Boy games, his colorful personality and bright yellow shirt was downgraded to a colorless monochrome image.
