30 Years Of Bosses -2011- by TheBourgyman 30 Years Of Bosses -2011- by TheBourgyman
Update 2014-09-01: Now includes Pom-Pom and Antasma. Changed the format of the picture to fit with the rest of my poster-like artwork. Also put the new watermark over the picture. I'd normally say I'm sorry for ruining the picture with a watermark, but this time, I'm not!


Another remake of an old picture, with an appropriately updated title! This time for my tribute to all of the major bosses of the Mario universe, reloaded for 2011. Of course, since almost 6 years have passed since the original, there's a few additions, from new characters to old ones that were omitted in the original. Can you name all these characters? And better yet, can you tell from WHAT game each of them come from? ;)


Paint Tool SAI, about 30 hours. All characters above belong to Nintendo! See the original below:

2.) I don't even know some of those bosses!!!

3.) Are the rhinos a boss or a sub-boss?

4.) I just found the rhinos! forget number 3!

A lot of these villains need comebacks, we only saw Wart, Tatanga, Smithy, and a few others in one or two Mario games. I hope with Nintendo granting the fans's request for a remake of The Legend Of Majora's Mask, we will see sequels or even remakes to those Mario games.

True. But Smithy and Tatanga have never resurfaced.

In Smithy's case, I guess you can blame Square. For Tatanga... I got nothing.Shrug

I know, Square is being greedy with characters they don't even use. Tatanga just disappeared after only 2 games, no explanation given. He was interesting.

When you think about it, Mario's had a rather diverse set of antagonists to fight against; he's fought monsters, robots, aliens, ghosts, demons, etc.  That's one of the things I love most about the Mario series: because Mario's not like some space soldier or mideval knight or anything tied to one genre, it leaves the door open to making his antagonists anyone or anything; the fact that he's able to defeat them all makes him my all-time favorite fictional character!

Anyways, awesome job, man!  Looks like promotional art to an official Mario game (which from the looks of it, I would REALLY love to play)!

We have Bowser being intimidating, Cackletta being scary, Count Bleck being intimidating, Peach being overcome by evil, and Petey hung over.

Yup. Wacka juice is some scary stuff.

It's a pain being a hero at times when you have all them bosses to face. Especially when one of them is your own brother...
