What's Happening

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story = The Legendary Fawful

 

Say what you want to about video game villains these days, while some are deviously malevolent and others are absurdly sinister while others wouldn't bat an eyelash at killing an elderly woman crossing the street at five MPH, Fawful adds an entirely new dimension of villainy to the books, and he does it with style.  What does he add?  How about hilariously incorrect syntax and grammatical errors aplenty? 

He is one of the only characters in a videogame with dialogue that brightens up the game, not to mention my day.  I am not ashamed to say that Fawful was one of the primary reasons I played the newest Mario & Luigi to completion... just to hear what the lunatic would say next.  Seriously, Nintendo's localization team are a bunch of geniuses.  Or as Fawful would say:  Nintendo's Team are using the funny in a way that makes FUNNY more FUNNYING!'

This guy cracks me up so much once I laughed so hard I was crying.  Oh man.

Fawful's origins (despite having way too many teeth than is physically healthy) came from the very first Mario & Luigi, the Superstar Saga - arguably the best RPG available for the Game Boy Advance.  In that game he was an assistant to the evil Cackletta who had hatched a plan to steal Peach's voice to further her own evil ends.  Throughout the game he was constantly throwing wedges and forcing the brothers to take detours which eventually bestowed them with enough abilities to best the evil duo.  He was then reprised as a vendor for the sequel with Baby Mario and Luigi before taking the direct villain role in the newest game.

The only step for Fawful now is up.  He either ups the ante in another Mario & Luigi sequel or stars as a playable character in the next Smash Brothers game.

 

 

Some quotes for you all!

'I HAVE FURY!'

'I am the mustard of your doom!'

'"Your lives that I spit on are now but a caricature of a cartoon drawn by a kid who is stupid!"'

'"I drizzled rage dressing on the country next door. Rage dressing on a salad of evil!"'

'What? The story of Fawful? Your words are not beans. I am not wanting them.'

'Stupid mustaches! Hairs like the dirty tail of a horse in a barn built by a farmer who is crazy!'

'Did I...have evil? I suppress the fury, but sometimes... The fury has me. Red and green puts the fog of rage in my eyes, and my mind goes crazy.'

'It is I who had put the nuts into this statue.'

'Oh, I am feeling the power! It high-fives Fawfuls face!'

'Your plan that I laugh at now makes for more laughing!'

'Beef?  I have no beef.  I am beefless!'
