Paper Mario’s got those jokes

The Paper Mario series is known for its almost irreverent take on the Mario universe, cracking jokes at the expense of almost every iconic character in the series. From characters in The Thousand Year Door making fun of Mario’s mustache to Bowser being the King of Guys who Talk to Posters.

There are some genuinely funny jokes and also amazing animation (see Goombaria and Goompapa above) in these games.

So for that reason, I’m going through each chapter in the first two games and collecting my favorite screen grabs.

All pictures are taken from Krow’s Graveyard‘s excellent walkthrough.

The first post with the best screen grabs from the Paper Mario Prologue will be up this Tuesday, 2/14! And, trust, there are quite a few.
