Mario and Luigi: The Mask (promotional poster) by TimeLordParadox Mario and Luigi: The Mask (promotional poster) by TimeLordParadox
The promotional poster for my sprite series Mario and Luigi: the Mask which is on Youtube

Luigi has grown tired of constantly being in Mario shadow, always being second best, always being seen as the coward, always seen as the useless sidekick and nothing but a joke.

That was until Luigi discovers an old, wooden mask which has unusual properties, because when he puts it on he is transformed into an super charged, unstoppable machine of impulse and instinct, with magic powers to grant any impulsive desires he now has.

Luigi keeps the Mask a secret from Mario and becomes a masked super hero and dubs his new identity Green Thunder, however Green Thunder is ‘not’ a hero you’d want to call for help as his impulsive nature and playful attitude often prolongs a conflict rather the ends it and leaves a trail of destruction greater than the actual threat.

But the Mask isn’t the only new threat. A mysterious creature called Ouroboros has sided with Bowser and has manipulated the lizard king to help track down a Norse god, the evil lord of mischief Loki. But what is Ouroboros’ true nature, his true identity and what is he actually looking for?



This was made using some of the still sprites that are actually used in the sprite cartoon.

I’ve started watching a lot of new sprites series’ on deviant art created by other people and they all have promotional sprite posters so I thought I’d try my hand at making some of my own.

Mario and Lugi: The Mask was written and created by TimeLordParadox (That's ME!) and can be viewed on my youtube channel.

This is the very deviation in which I discovered Mario and Luigi the Mask. I loved the series ever since. Keep up the good work, TLP! Green Thunder: TLP sounds like something you put on a sore butt! Me: Shut up, Thunder. You're ruining my compliment. Green Thunder: Whatever. Me: *Sighs.

Hmm, ok then, no worries! Waiting for next episodes.


The originallity here is that it is not really focused on a specific story or fights, just on Green Thunder himself and his adventures. It's really interesting though, I love how you replaced the Cuban Pete scene by Smooth Criminal, saying that we never knew if Annie was okay, HAHAHA^^ Love it, thanks for your series :D

TimeLordParadox Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Cheers mate, but Green Thunders adventures are not just the whole thing. Though Luigi/Green Thunder's adventures (Or misadventures) are a large part of the series I have more elements to it, like developing the new characters I've created for the series like General Karnage and his squad Alpha, Beta and Theta and so on, exploring Luigi's obsession with using the Mask and a load of other things I can't tell you yet ;)

But at the heart of the series is the mystery of the Mask itself and of the creature Ouroboros, these two are part of the longterm narrative into which all these small adventures explore and slowly unearth all the clues that reveal who Ouroboros is and what he is doing in the Mushroom Kingdom. All these elements plus all the gags and jokes go into making up the whole series.

Smooth Criminal is one of my all time favourite Michael Jackson songs, and I wanted to use a re-mixed version of it somewhere in the story and while writing Chapter 3 I found where I could put it.

No problem mate, hope you continue to enjoy it as much as I have making it. :)

Cheers

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention them. Karnage is probably the most insolent koopa ever, and his squad was hilarious in the dark kidnapping scene :D

Ha! You didn't chose Ouroboros' name for nothing I suppose, especially when you know what it means. I was expecting a better fight with kamek though, because Kamek is not bad, but that guy...
And love your joke of : he can't be with Fawful. His name sounds Greek, and Fawful barely speaks English" SO TRUE!!!

Although Ouroborous is not Greek at all.


Smooth Criminal IS my all time fav however, and Billy jean and beat it, thriller and bad are not too far away. Thriller in second position :D



Oh I hope I will :D
Cheers too, keep up the good work

Thanks, Karnage was based off Blackadder from the show of the same name. I just wanted someone who could look at Bowser, realise how absurd his plans usually are and how flawed his thinking can be.

Are you sure about Ouroboros? Because from what I've read the earliest mention of the word is in Greek literature.

Yeah, I like Thriller as well, I like almost every Michael Jackson song, he's one of the few artists who's music I consistantly liked.

Cheers

Didn't know that show, quit interesting^^

And I was COMPLETLY WRONG. I misplaced Ouroboros with Midgar. Midgar is from what I've said, but Ouroboros is Greek indeed. Sorry for this.

Yeah, love Trhiller that's for sure.

Blackadder was an award winning, British comedy show, it stars the comedy genious of Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean), Tony Robinson (Time Team) Hugh Laurie (Probably better know today as playing Dr. House) and the comedy legend Stephen Fry.

Here's an example of this show. [link]

Though if I have to be honest I didn't set out for Karnage to be like Blackadder at all, originally I just wanted someone to look at the world around him, see how ridiculous it was and make a snide remark about it now and again. It was only later after watching the show again that I decided to bring more of Blackadder into Karnage.

That's okay mate, for a minute there I thought I had messed up somewhere. But if I had been wrong i'd just have put it down to general ignorance on Karnages part.

Cheers
