We’re used to how certain characters look in video games, right? And if they’re altered ever slightly, sometimes it can throw us for a loop.
For instance, we’re all used to the seeing the flop of hair that usually sits ever so softly over Mario’s thick little penis. It’s a videogame comfort we know and love.
If for some reason you’ve been living in the stone age, here’s a picture of our favorite plumber in his newest adventure, Super Mario Odyssey.
Well we hired a team of special effects artists to see what it would look like if we shaved off Mario’s iconic bulge-do, just to see what it would look like. And, um…well…
You can see the rendered image for yourself below.
Obviously, the outfit is familiar, along with the nice plump warp-pipe we have been stomping goombas alongside for decades. But without that simple tuft of hair, it all looks so… weird!
Of course, we all know the story about how the only reason Mario even has pubic hair in the first place is because it was easier to animate during the days of 8-bit graphics.
But it’s been around so long that it just looks downright freaky by now to imagine Mario with a bald eagle!
